    Hi All,

    AM looking to finally buy ST6 on dvd in the UK/Region 2.

    Please could someone advise me which version to buy as I want to have the scenes with Colonel West/scooby do ending included, rather than the version where they're cut.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Regards,

    CDP

    I Have the Region 4 Special Edition 2-disc DVD - it has the scenes you mentioned.

    (I'd rather it hadn't, but that's me -- and it was the only one available at the time)

    I'm usallly one that likes extra scenes in movies, but in this case I think they hurt the movie rather than add to it.

    Agreed.

    None of the additonal material adds anything of substance to the film, and only serves to slow/break up the pace IMHO. Scotty's "that Klingon bitch" dialogue is just horrible. The theatrical is indeed the superior cut.

    The TUC Blu-ray is the finest AV presentation of the movie currently available on home video, and has the virtue of being the only one with the theatrical version - in its original aspect ratio to boot!

    Maybe the one extra scene I would keep in is the scene on Operation: Retrieve.

    I agree that the theatrical cut is the superior version of the movie.

    Steve, I've mentioned this before. You generally don't resurrect threads this old, particularly if there's really not much to contribute.
