RE: The "Fake Ray".

This is factually incorrect. They did not expand DVD masters or anything of the sort.

They likely worked from 2K masters from the studio, and did a 4K restoration for Star Trek II, that may have needed more work.

Just snagged a copy of the dvd set from Wal-Mart. Wanted to get them for years, but haven't been able to find them that often.

I grabbed the 2-disc package of TMP and STII last night, from Wal-Mart as well. The fact that TMP was the theatrical version sold me; now I have both it and the DE on DVD.

I put it in the player when I got home this evening and just let it run without sound while putzing around doing things, and I think that the picture quality is far better than the DE from 2000. Could just be an illusion, as I haven't take the time to switch the DVDs out for a true comparison. But it does seem that some minor clean-up work was done on this version, IMO.

Re: Star Trek Box Sets

I saw the TOS boxed set at Walmart last week for $35, along with several sets (various two-pack of the movies), it makes me wonder in Paramount is clearing out stock to make room for something new?

Perhaps they are releasing a box set of all the films combined?

If they redo the work for the TMP Directors Edition, I'd be really happy.

They will be releasing a new box set called "Stardate Collection" at the end of April. Nothing new, though ... just the same stuff repackaged.

Re: Star Trek Box Sets

I'm waiting for a complete remastered Blu Ray set before I re-purchase the films.

I think I saw the same, but those were the DVD sets.

The Blu-Rays were around $70 I think.

I'll see for myself how well the TOS movies fare in their theatrical forms on Blu, but some day, I hope they get Darren Dochterman and company to recreate the Directors Edition of TMP.

CBS Digital might be able to help out with that also.

I'm happy to have the theatrical releases.

Here-here.

Restored, not over DNRed, multiple versions, deleted scenes. Do it right or keep it.

Re: Star Trek Box Sets

I picked up the TOS and TNG sets on DVD today. Now I just need the time to watch them...

Re: Star Trek Box Sets

The Blu-rays for the TOS and TNG movies are not bad, and IMHO, The Motion Picture and The Wrath Of Khan look fantastic. The others I'd rate as overall pretty good.

The sound on TMP is awesome, and I prefer the sound mix I heard there to the Directors Edition revised mix. Jerry Goldsmith's score comes through so sublime it's unreal.

I'm actually very happy with the Blu-ray sets. The only 2 things I want now are a high-definition recreation of the work for the Director's Edition, and the resoration of the special features on that DVD, along with maybe an extra documentary about the Blu-ray re-rendering of the effects.

If they create better transfers of the movies to address the DNR / Edge Enhancement issues, all the better, but I'm happy with them.

Re: Star Trek Box Sets

I'm glad I found this thread as the reviews on Amazon are next to useless when they use reviews from DVD's/VHS/LaserDisc to review a BluRay (sorry for the overuse of the word "review"!)

As someone who has been blown away by CBS's work on TNG, something I'm more than happy to part with my cash for, I will wait until the movies are remastered properly by Paramount.

Is there any further news or hints that this will definitely happen?

Re: Star Trek Box Sets

I found the investment in the theatrical cuts on shiny disc to be worth a double-dip with the Blu Ray releases. Especially with things like TMP and TUC, whose theatrical cuts have long been buried in a commercial sense for many, many years. There's always been something about the Director's Editions which I've disliked, so it has been great to be able to own the movies just as they originally went out in theaters.

This is now out, going for around £70 in the UK.

The BDs are definitely an upgrade over the DVDs, especially TMP which had never been available in it's original form since the VHS days. Too bad that the opening credits of TSFS are window boxed, though. And I really hope that we will get the TMP-SLV and the TWOK-DE as well as the extended version of TUC (not the DE) on BD!
