Star Trek: The Original Series Blu-ray
Anyone have this?

Questions: 1) Does this remastered version have the updated visual effects?
2) The Aspect Ratio is listed as Fullscreen. Does this mean it has been adapted for 16:9 instead of 4:3?

If it says remastered version it includes (a few) new effect shots.

The BluRay has the 2006 Remaster with BOTH original and updated special effects.

The original effects are encoded as Alternate Angles, which you pre-select at the time that you select an episode.

You can also choose between 7.1 and mono, however these will also default to the updated and original versions, respectively, unless selected otherwise (ie, 7.1 sounds a little strange with the original effects, and vice versa, as in both cases the audio stems are specific to the directionality -or lack thereof- with the exterior effects).

Long story short, the BluRay is ideal for either version of the show.
