I trust JMS after Babylon 5. I liked his leaked treatment for Star Trek....but I don;t know.

I have searched Amazon.co.uk etc and can only come up with region 1 imports and old second hand region 2, all at extreme price.

I ordered it only to find after placing the order that it was a Korean version without any of the features of the 50Th Anniversary edition, was in 4:3 ratio and going by comments left regarding seller, probably a pirate copy (it was not actually Play.com but one of their playtrade sellers. I have just cancelled my order. So unfortunately my comments stands about this classic not being available in the UK.

So it is. My apologies. That's odd, it can't have been deleted that long ago then as it was probably barely a year ago I bought the full edition direct from play.com.

Very correct, but there's more!

Invisible monsters, gotta love em. The story goes that the invisible monster was the key to this movie actually being made. Seems invisible monsters don't cost a fortune and you can have as many as you want!
