Star Trek season 1 on blu-ray: April 28







I love how this guy [comment 5] gives the prices for quadruple dips of obsolete formats:
let’s see how it compares. Here’s how much it would cost to get JUST Season 1 in most of the previous releases: Original VHS Release (1 ep per tape, $20.00 each) – $580.00
Laserdisc release (2 eps per disc, $60.00 each) – $900.00
Original DVD release (single discs, 2 eps per disc – $30.00 each) – $450.00
Original DVD Season set – $160.00, original version only (now sells for around $60.00)
HD-DVD/DVD Combo Season Set – $130.00, remastered version only (now sells for around $85.00)
Blu-ray Season 1 set – $120.00 SRP, usually sold for between $60-90, both original and remastered version in HD.

...original and remastered version in HD.
This is totally offtopic, but this is my biggest Trek fan pet peeve. I don't get why it's so difficult for fans to comprehend what the word remastered means.

No, the "original and remastered versions" are not on blu-ray. Only the remastered episodes are on blu-ray. You can choose between remastered episodes with original FX or remastered episodes with new FX. No matter which you pick, it's all been remastered in HD.

The new transfer is what makes the show remastered, not new FX. Why is it virtually impossible for fans to get this?

Okay, done venting. Can't wait for season two...

September 22 Season two of the original series will be offered on Blu-Ray as a seven-disk set, including all twenty-six episodes. Fans will be able to see the show as originally aired, or as remastered versions.
No additional details yet.

Because the project itself was incorrectly named "Star Trek Remastered" http://www.startrek.com/startrek/vie...cle/28095.html

Agree on your point about the peeve. However "TOSR" is a lot easier to say/write/discuss than "That Heretical Star Trek With Those Fancy New Special Effects That Destroyed A Beautiful Work Of Art" e.g. "THSTWTFNSETDABWOA".

Looking forward to S2 as well...

I think you missed Hober's point, but I don't see how he could have been more clear. He wasn't complaining about the new effects. He was simply stating that this phrase "...original and remastered version in HD..." is factually incorrect. Both versions of the episodes on the blu-ray are remastered; one has the original effects, while the other has the new CGI effects.

They took the original negatives, cleaned them up a bit, boosted the color and the black levels, then scanned them at a high resolution to make HD masters. That's the remastering.

Then, they inserted the new effects in one copy of the master. That's the version we saw on the boob tube.

We can watch either version of the HD remastered episodes on the blu-rays. Capisce?

I think part of it was----they didn't think there'd be market for the Remastered with the original FX.

So they intended the only 'remastered' version to only have the new FX. And therefore the two thing (new Fx and cleaned up picture) would be synonymous (sp)

When they saw there was a market for the HD versions with the original FX they then had to make two remastered versions. and it created an even more evident mistake in the naming they had started with in 2006.

I got his point but probably blurred that with my comment about the new spfx. I was attempting to parody the attitude of a specific subset of fans, not Hober in particular. I understood his comment "Can't wait for season two..." meant he was onboard with the whole thing.

According to this press release: http://trekmovie.com/2009/08/05/full...o-blu-ray-set/ the set is going to contain the DS9-Episode "Trials And Tribble-ations" in HD. I always thought that DS9 had it's post-production done on video like TNG and was therefore unlikley to be released in HD. I wonder what they did with the episode...

Wow I missed that. You are correct. Hopefully they did not just do an upconversion from 480i to 1080p.
There is interest from DS9 fans to remaster the series from these two threads.
If they actually did a remaster on this episode it would be from the original camera negative and had to re-edit the show and the visual effects recreated... hmm. We'll see in September...

Edit to add:
More Tribbles, More Troubles Episode From Star Trek®: The Animated Series (HD) also says HD.
I wonder did they give the TAS episode the TOS-R remaster treatment from the original cut negative?

I'm sure the DS9 episode is just an upconversion. It would have cost thousands to reassemble the film footage and re-edit it----not to mention redoing the FX shots.

But hey i'm really glad they included all of the 'Tribble' tie in episodes and material.

I'm buying this the first day.

Confirmed by THE DIGITAL BITS site..........

The DS9 episode is simply an up-convert not a complete redo.
Still I'm glad they enclosed it.
The animated episode IS true HD as it was made on film all the way.

"The Trouble With Tribbles" (TOS)
Brand New Audio Commentary by David Gerrold

David Gerrold wrote the scripts for the original series' "The Trouble with Tribbles" and its sequel, the animated series' "More Tribbles, More Troubles",
"More Tribbles, More Troubles",
episode was a sequel to David Gerrold's own TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles". In his commentary for this episode on The Animated Series DVD, Gerrold states that the story for this episode was originally submitted for the third season of The Original Series, but third season producer Fred Freiberger rejected it. Freiberger disliked the comic tone of "The Trouble with Tribbles," and did not want to go down that road a second time.
from Memory Alpha.

This is pretty cool we get two commentaries from Gerrold about these 3 related Tribbles episodes (TOS, TAS, DS9) even though he only worked on 2. One in 2006 (TAS) and one recorded in 2009 (TOS).

^ Pity they're not including that one Jeopardy! episode where tribbles gradually covered the set.
