Re: TMP on Blu-Ray

Sez Memory Alpha:
In the original version of the film, V'Ger's cloud was actually 82 AUs across. At their farthest point from each other (the aphelion), Earth and Pluto are just over 49 AUs apart. This would have made V'Ger's cloud almost twice that length, completely engulfing the solar system.
