    Click on the opening post link.
    I'm a fan of nine of them, so that's great.
    Notice that the list is production order and end at episode 51.
    I'm smelling a volume two !!

    Ok deleted scenes experts -- what's missing from those episodes?
    I know for COTEOF they shot an entire sequence where McCoy is captured and then escapes again.
    Chapel is in the cut footage.
    Space seed has a scene where Angela tells McGivers that a crewman has a crush on her.
    Mirror has more footage of the Halkin leader explaining his beliefs.
    Corbomite has a lot of stuff.
    Operation has the scene of Kirk's nephew on the bridge at the end.

    What else?

    More Aurelan Kirk in "Operation: Annihilate!", IIRC.

    "Return to Tomorrow" - a little more with the formless android body?

    Palamas announced as being pregnant to Apollo in "Who Mourns for Adonais?"

    From the live streaming of the panel and sneak peaks, there seems to be an alternate angle where they showed Edith Keeler hit by the truck. It's a more powerful scene focused on Kirk, Spock, McCoy's reaction at that moment. But fascinating a 60's TV show went that close to traumatising the audience nonetheless.

    *blink* They HAD to know NBC would never let that air! Why would they bother shooting it?

    Also re 'Space Seed': Possibly an extended version of the dinner scene, and an extended Kirk/Khan fight with some great dialogue. "It's worth the price (if we die). We go - but we take with us a posturing, ambitious, petulant little dictator who is as miscast in this century as he was in his own." Plus, it's Spock who gives Kirk the idea to strand Khan on Ceti Alpha VI...

    Palamas being prenant was scripted, but not shot.
    They knew ful well it would never get past the censors.

    The character of "Lang" had his lines cut from Arena -- so there is a chance for that.
    In Space they supposedly cut "Katy's" lines because her outfit was too revealing.

    Oh right! The last lines from Space Seed. After somrone says "It would be intetesting to see what grows from the seeds we planted today."
    They cut, "Let's hope it doesn't come looking for us!"
    So cool in light of TWOK -- that exact thing happening.

    From what I recall, Conscience had a lot of cuts -- including where Rand interupts Kirk and Lenore in the observation deck.
    And Court Martial had Jamie Finney on the ship holding her father.
    Either that material is lost or they are holding it back.
    Let's see, 12 goes into 79 about 7 times.
    Yes, I would buy 7 volumes. LOL.
    To me more TOS footage is holy grail. And it was presumed lost, so this is quite a surprise. To see the actors, young, alive, in their iconic roles in new footage one last time.....
    Wow!

    Not just TOS either. At least some workprint footage of the infamous 'Memory Wall' deleted scene from TMP went to Roddenberry, to be chopped up and sold off piecemeal via Lincoln Enterprises. If he retained the negatives in order to make copies...

    Feeling really greedy. They cut Dr. Adams explanation for why he was doing his "treatments"
    More James Gregory? Yes please.
    Lots of dialogue from Squire.
    A ton from Friday's Child. A lot from Amok Time with T'Pau.
    A huge scene from Elaan...
    A lot of Lincoln stuff on the ship before they beam down in Savage.
    A lot of Kirk/Reyna from Requiem.
    Spock's bee sting in For the World....
    Very greedy

    Great news... could have been even better for me if some of the missing footage was from The Doomsday Machine. When I first read the news, I immediately thought of the footage shot with William Windom performing a multitude of reactions as a suicidal Decker piloted the shuttlecraft into the maw of the planet killer. Windom told the story in a number of interviews... how Marc Daniels told him that he (Daniels) had no idea how to shoot the scene, and left it to Windom to come up with Decker's reaction (Daniels reportedly left then to have a cigarette). Windom then performed a series of possible reactions, perhaps ranging from stoic acceptance to the more manic mannerisms that survived Don Rode's scissors. How great it would be to see what did not survive the editing process.

    Sorry to fart in the airlock.

    You've been reading too much Cushman. All the evidence at UCLA indicates the scene was shot. If it shows up on this set, it will just be further indication that he made up a lot of stuff in those books.

    Lol.
    I've been reading since the 70s, that it wasn't shot, so forget Cushman.
    It won't be there, but that won't prove anything either way will it?
    Hope I'm wrong though. Love to see it.

    In the missing bit from City, McCoy clonks Scotty on the head, yes? We do see Scotty rubbing his head just after McCoy jumps through, we just never know exactly why.

    Yeah, really liking the idea of this, though in relation to the above conversations about the term, it feels more like the documentaries and recovered footage are the main feature and the episodes are the VAM. It'd be nice if the budget went as far as some commentaries for them though.

    The scripted dialog from the briefing room scene in "The Corbomite Maneuver" including where Uhura says she thought she knew English when Spock uses the archaic term "flypaper".

    Stuff that should have been on the original DVD release 15 odd years ago. Stuff that should have been on the Blu-rays 5 years ago. Sorry Paramount, I have no more milk left in my teats. All you'll be able to get now is bloody pus.
