This has been reported and discussed briefly on the Star Trek films on BD thread. The news of Star Trek TOS Season 1 deserves it's own thread for discussion and debate! One aspect of the news that I didn't see coming regarding the TOS Season 1 sets is the inclusion of the original broadcast versions. (Original optical effects) That's a huge deal and while that's not fully confirmed, is very welcome news. I heard early rumors that would not happen. So perhaps they're listening to us fans. Here's a quote from trekmovie's story: Blu-ray Update: TOS Season 1 + TOS Movies Coming May 2009 | TrekMovie.com The Digital Bits: Celebrating Film on Disc - DVD & Blu-ray Can't wait till May 2009 for so many reasons! ---------------- Some added thoughts on the release of TOS on BD; I must say that I am excited about is the inclusion of the original optical effects in the set, if it turns out to be true! So thanks to CBS for listening to the fans! But I think some of us will be amazed at the difference of how poor some of the original effects look now in hi-def! Not that I don't like them because some of the better composed shots look beautiful. But I am amazed at how I've gotten used the new CGI. Though sometimes they are flawed and CGI-ish! I am more aware of this now that I have seen the entire series Remastered. Some of the Enterprise motions look awkward, or the course of flight looked to be reused from other previous shots as a time saver. So some shots of the ship going into orbit of a planet looks wrong, like it's entering the atmosphere! Other shots like the Kligon Battlecrusier look poorly rendered and the motion of the ship's flight also looks awkward or unnatural as it veers off during a battle sequence in Elaan of Troyius.
