I wish I still had my TWOK VHS tape, but that died a long time ago from being played too much. I like the takes that they used on the VHS (the original theatrical edition takes) better than the ones selected for the DVD. I'll never get rid of my TOS DVD's nor my Star Wars OT original theatrical edition DVD's.
To my knowledge, the only release in which some of the theatrical takes have been changed is on the 2 disc Director's Cut DVD. All other home video versions contain the original theatrical cut - including the Blu-ray. I'm with you, I MUCH prefer the theatrical version of TWOK and was gratified it was used for the BD.
Ah, thanks for the clarification! I do have the director's cut DVD. I just really hate to lose copies of versions that I like. That's not enough motivation for me personally to buy these TNG DVD's, but I can certainly appreciate that some people might not want to throw away DVD's they already have just because Blu-rays come out.
