I am curious. I've heard that some of the stories have been altered?

This could be just a TV station having to cut for time.

But if anyone has both versions of "Devil in the Dark", would they mind checking to see if McCoy's dialogue at the end is changed at all?

Thanks.

I have seen both many times. They are indeed the same.

So crisp, such vibrant colours and the new effects are just right!!

P.S - I now see the very early TOS signs of Uhura's intrigue about Spock - the romance in the new film definitely has precedent!
Kevin, I'm so glad you liked it! I agree 100% It looks really great. I love going back and watching it over like that as well.

WAHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

That is great news. They are nicely priced this time around and the inner special FX junkie in me probably can't pass them up. hehe!

+1

For me, there is something about the original effects. For those who like the remastered, or both, I understand, but the show is as much about memories as it is about the concept.

The updated graphics (are to good) and remind me of the other visual flaws, but that is just me.

Sorry, but I like the original, (on DVD of course) sound is great, and I'm a stickler for models on CGI, kind of like the difference between a digital photo and an stadard film type. It's more of a preference, nostalgia thing. I did like the movie CGI though, and I like the improved effects on STMP, and would probably sell my originals if I could get Blueray.

I think regarding the special effects - I came to TOS well after seeing the Star Trek films and much of TOS.

In comparison the effects of TOS were never what I could find believable (credit given to the fact they were the best they could do at the time, of course) and so I think that's why I like the new spruced up effects.

They make it more realistic overall.

Only IMHO of course!

I read most of James Blish's adaptions before I had seen the episodes. I has seen some, so I knew the look of thing. But I was also able to let my imagination run wild on things.

When I did see the episodes I was always impressed with the effects. The huge phaser shot in The Cage comes to mind, as does a shot in The Alternate Factor when the Enterprise fires on the planet. Even the aliens in Catspaw and Operation: Annihilate! I thought were pretty neat from a "using anything you can to tell the story" perspective.

The only reason Paramount have invested in making the remastered versions is because the new BluRay/HD formats are different and the old prints don't fit the fomat. Plus, they also must have realised it's just plain cheeky to expect the modern audience to pay £$X for 40 year old quality TV.

If it was about making the Original Series better, then the would have done it back in 1986/7, when TNG aired.

Cheek never stopped Paramount bleeding fans with endless re-issues and repackaged version before!

Yeah, I forgot about the infamous, lets release all the films on DVD in reverse order without special features and then again in forward order in 2 Disc Special/Directors Cut editions. Silly me!
