    mine had it over a star field…the first time I saw this cut (it wasn’t on my old VHS) I started laughing after a minute or so. Great way to start the movie.

    Not to mention the starfield isn't even centered, plus it dissolves into itself at a random point towards the end.

    I'm thinking the starfield was added for the DE, as I don't recall seeing it in previous versions, but I could be wrong? When I was a kid who didn't quite appreciate music yet I tended to fast-forward past the overture.

    Indeed!
    it was definitely not only on the DE: I saw that cut the first time around 2019 and my DVD around 2008 was pretty much the same of my old VHS but had the overture.

    I watch it regularly. I think I last watched it about a month ago on my phone in bed. A favorite for enhanced viewing.

    Mr mustache getting the big pinch from Spock.
    I belive he might have studied at the Sucunda School of Specific Acting.

    i use it sometimes to go to sleep by if the insomnia is getting untenable. its like an aquarium. Pretty relaxed and repetitive apart from that intruder alert bit. I probably last had it on two months ago

    He reminds me of the "Don't get smart, tiny." guy from STIII.

    But that's the wrong guy. The one coming through the door with Kirk - with no moustache - and mentioning the "Federation funny farm" - is Gary Faga. Yes, the guy that Kirk drops is the same one that Spock drops in TMP.

    Can you imagine him, disillusioned, departing the Enterprise after being neck-pinched by the First Officer, only to be knocked out by his former captain?
