Re: TOS-Remastered: a waste of time

To be honest, I think debating about whether the remastered eps are a waste of time is a waste of time. Those of us who are interested will go buy the set anyway and those who aren't won't. Still, I guess it fills the time until the next movie....

Well... the remastered shots aren't Canon either, so...

Re: TOS-Remastered: a waste of time

I dont' have the remasterd on dvd but I do have the blu ray. I now have all of the seasons of TOS on blu ray, just bought season 3 yesterday. On the blu ray you can choose between the orginal or the remasterd. I always watch it on the remasterd because it looks great! I got the blu ray's because I wanted them, plus I love the show. So what if it looks great or not, I just like the show.

You'll get no argument from me.

It's a good reason to use only connies though.

The writers probably had a fleet of Starfleet's best in mind, like the E was.
Just like the destruction of the Yamato on TNG or the Odyssey on DS9 wouldn't have had as much shock factor if it had been some random Excelsiors. Did they comment on which ship was supposed to be the Miranda?

I'm pretty sure a Miranda have looked gorgeous though
I think so too, and would have liked to see that. One of my most favorite changes was in one of my least favorite episodes, "Charlie X". I liked how they showed a "live action" version of the ship seen in the TAS episode where Spock was dying. I'm not sure, but I think it was "The Pirates of Orion".

Re: TOS-Remastered: a waste of time

One of the new ships for ST XI was a TOS-ified Miranda. The 'new' Defiant has the same number as the TOS version - NCC-1764 - but is now a Miranda. Linky

Nah, it was "More Tribbles, More Troubles". The ship from "Pirates of Orion" was the SS Huron, a different design. Both ship types are also in the ("un-canon!") Star Trek: Of Gods and Men.

A TOS Miranda is in the (unfortunately utterly terrible) fan film "Blood and Fire". The story and acting are, sadly, horrific but the CG is great:

Not me -- I thought it was about twice as long as it needed to be to effectively tell its story.

I'm not saying I could do better -- far from it! But I wish it had been more tightly edited.

Not first, but I really enjoyed it, which I do with all the Phase II "independent productions."

Re: TOS-Remastered: a waste of time

This is gonna sound weird but I don't really see the difference between the two. I mean, maybe because I've been watching these things for almost 40 years now, but my mind always substitutes the reimaged stuff for the old stuff.
