^ I also concur with the above..on HDTV s most of the old effects just scream out to be noticed..grain..artifacts on the composite show up...it's too jarring compared with the new effects at high resolution settings..
But as I have often pointed out..
A true purist "Who wants to see it in it's original resolution" needs to use an old electron tube TV and an old VCR to get the true Olde Tyme Star Trek viewing experience.
Note at least one of the links to the side are for clips with color tv's from the late 50's to early 60's. Those
are the sets that Star Trek was made for, as well as the large number of black and white sets still in use. After all, not everyone had a brand new RCA Victor or Zenith (although Star Trek sold a lot of 'em); a lot of folks continued to get by with the old Dumont.
