This isn't one of the fan edits that stupidly tries to cut them into TOS episodes, is it? I wouldn't assume so.
It does sound like a good idea, it seems like the final edit was kinda rushed together. Plus, the music sounds like it would match the original edit.
Well, now that I know your opinion on it, no, it's nothing like that
Actually, that's exactly what it is, and I kind of like the format. It worked best for TMP, which is just so hard for me to sit through any other way. Especially considering the original intent of TMP as the aborted Phase II, I thought it worked well. Even if you don't like the format, it's worth a watch to see how the movie plays out with those scenes rearranged.
