Discussion in 'Star Trek Movies I-X' started by Warped9, Jul 7, 2021.
Given what HBO Max pulled, you can pry physical media out of my cold, dead hands!
I don't think iTunes works that way.
Yep, the 4K version we're discussing here. For reasons I have yet to find out, Paramount+ will no longer be offering it, as of the end of this month.
Grant was talking about the digital 'code', not the digital 'copy'. If someone buys the 4K-UHD edition of TMPE that advertises a digital copy, they can sell or give away the digital code to someone else.
Since the disc comes with a digital code it stands to reason iTunes will have it for sale on street date.
Here's hoping the same thing happens with Star Trek VI. I need those gongs back!
I assume the 4K DE will eventually be for sale online somewhere. I've had the DE from Amazon Prime for several years.

My iTunes digital copy of the Director’s Edition I bought years ago has just upgraded to the 2022 version. Not surprising though, it’s only in SD since that’s how I originally bought it. I think the only way I can upgrade it to 4K is if I rebuy it or redeem a digital code. I’ll likely do the latter when I get the physical set.
What did HBO Max do?
Now, the vast majority of the animation industry is screaming for David Zaslav's head and the company has lost a lot of money.
HMV has confirmed that mine has been dispatched.
Hallelujah! I bought the DE 4 years ago on Prime and it’s now magically transformed into the 4k DE. So, I guess I don’t have to worry about where to buy it now- I already owned it all along.
Is it still in SD or did up upgrade to HD/4K?
Not sure of the resolution but the content is the new version. Checked the officers lounge scene (new background) , the opening credits (glittery) and leaving drydock. ( Earth was there- the arm and the dust wasnt)
I’m back from Vegas and this bad boy was at my door. I’ll check it out tomorrow and finally check out this SLV cut
I just checked my iTunes copy of TMP, it’s the theatrical version (which got the free 4K upgrade a while back) but it also includes the DE as an extra but currently it’s still the SD version. I’m not too bothered if it doesn’t get upgraded as IIRC they added the DE as a free extra a while after I bought it anyway, but it would be funny if it did get the upgrade considering I never paid for it!
My “Complete Adventure” edition of the Blu-Ray has been posted, hopefully it will arrive Monday. I’m really looking forward to seeing the SLV in high-def widescreen! The new deleted scenes should be awesome so see too.
Early reports suggest that the security guard scene is missing phaser shot and documentary doesn't contain any new memory wall footage. That's sort of a disappointment and a relief. I was looking forward to seeing what could be done with the Memory Wall - I even prepped some pre-emptive dialogue but it would have been a huge challenge. I wonder how easy it will be to add a phaser effect?
I guess I am one of the few people that a) really glad that they did the 1-4 4K collection last year b) that they finally decided to do individual 4K this year, because…
Now I just need to buy the TMP DE and VI in 4K and it completes my TOS movie collection! I do not and will not want V in my collection ever! Thank you Paramount!
Now I just have wait for FC in 4K and that’s the only TNG movie I ever need!
I'd give it about a week, two max, before some fan-editor fixes up the security guard scene.
And I now sadly have to conclude, outside of what we already saw, that the Memory Wall footage has long since either been lost or deliberately junked. Otherwise it would've been here. Disappointing, but not unexpected. Nobody was anticipating actually using this stuff in home video back in the 70's.
Then again, given what we're seeing from the Roddenberry Archive lately, all may not be lost in that regard...
