with English subtitles available. Television preview trailers
included as a bonus.
film that was shot on a low budget back in 1966, this stuff
looks amazing. The colors are rich and saturated and the remix
soundtrack is great. When the red alert goes off you hear
it all around you! If you are a fan of the series, you should
get at least one disk just to see and hear the improvements.
so this isn't actually a movie. It is however something that most
guys who are fans of Science Fiction will be interested in so we've
decided to include it here anyway.
is classic Sci-Fi at it's best! If you are a fan of the original
Star Trek series you certainly won't be disappointed with this DVD.
The picture is bright and clear and is obviously the result of painstaking
digital recovery work. The only parts of the show that look grainy
are the space scenes, but at least the strings and overlays have
been removed. The soundtrack is excellent though and has been remixed
into Dolby Digital 5.1. I wish they had included the option of hearing
the original soundtrack on the disk for those purists out there,
but for my money I'd take the Digital version any day.
disk contains 2 episodes, "Where No Man Has Gone Before" and
"The Corbomite Maneuver." These are episodes #2 and #3. Note
that Paramount is releasing the series in the order they were filmed,
not in the order they we originally aired.
"Where No Man Has Gone Before" a crewman named Gary Mitchell
is the benefactor of enhanced psychic abilities after the ship comes
in contact with an energy barrier. As his powers grow, Spock believes
he will become a danger to the ship and thus the Captain should
kill Gary while he still can. The fact that Kirk is friends with
Gary makes these decisions all the more difficult.
second episode on this disk, "The Corbomite Maneuver"
starts with the Enterprise coming upon a strange cube in space.
When all attempts to out run this cube fail, Kirk is forced to destroy
it. This act causes a new ship to arrive, the Fesarius, a
huge ship of immesuarable power bent on the destruction of the Enterprise.
Captain Kirk has to think quickly to get the ship of of this jam
(doesn't he always?)
