And "drowning" might not have been the most appropriate word choice.
I most definitely did not imply any allusion to Tony Scott's suicide.

But if I look at Ridley's latest version of Blade Runner compared to the original and untempered version it literally gives me the blues because it's oversaturated in blue.

You seem to miss that I was indicating Ridley is still alive, so it was unclear whether you meant Ridley or Tony.

Once it was rejected, Roddenberry considered shooting more material to expand it into a theatrical film, but ended up cutting up the color master of the pilot to turn it into the "Menagerie" 2-parter, which is why the only "intact" version of the pilot that survived was Roddenberry's B&W print.
An interesting "What If?" here! What if The Cage had been released as a movie in theaters and become successful? Would Roddenberry have just gone on to do more movies, or would he have continued to pursue Star Trek as a TV series? what would a series of Star Trek movies in the mid to late 60s have looked like?

It may have been something like the old Dr. Who movies, inspired by the show but ultimately unconnected to it.

I'd like to see the full B&W version, with the original soundtrack, possibly cleaned up a little (but not too much!)
I'm with this. Get it out there so everyone can see it as it was (minus the color), and then fans can make their own edits.

Yes, I want to see a version with the original Talosian voice all the way through.
