For those of you who haven't heard, startrekhistory.com was recently hacked and infected with malware. So, unfortunately, its content needed to be removed. Curt is hard at work on restoring the site, and when it comes back, it will have an all new look, expanded content, and new, never-before-seen interviews. In the meantime... Last year, startrekhistory.com was contacted by an individual who possessed 2-1/2 minutes of lost footage from ST:TMP. I had the pleasure of telecining that footage (from fading anamorphic work prints), and, when the site is up and running, you will be able to view it there along with some other gems from the movie. In brief, it appears that the footage is comprised of five takes of three scenes, i.e., two takes each of two scenes and one take of one scene. The scenes are of Kirk in the V'Ger trench encountering the crystals and then being overcome by them. As a teaser, below is a color-corrected image from a single frame located at the beginning of the film. Enjoy!
