Yes unfortunately someone convinced Nick Meyer to sign off on the re-grading of the color into the popular steely blue/teal palette that pretty much all new movies use, it's really sickening...
What makes you think that anyone even asked Nick Meyer to approve these color "corrections"? I don't think he was involved with the BD transfer.
Paramount implies as much in the pre-announcement of the release in 2009. http://trekmovie.com/2009/02/16/cbs-...ming-aprilmay/
"Special care has been given to the Blu-ray version of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
, which has been ‘fully restored’ in a process similar to Paramount’s recent Blu-ray edition of The Godfather
. Director Nicholas Meyer tells us that the Wrath of Khan negative “was in terrible shape” which is why it needed extensive restoration."
Which mind you I call BS on, it was in no way restored with any of the care of The Godfather.
