    HTF REVIEW: Star Trek - The Complete First Season

    Nelson, I'm not at home now to check the DVD, but the scene in question is in the first few minutes of the episode before all hell breaks loose. (It could be the first bridge scene in the episode.) Kirk is in his chair, Spock walks up behind him, and starts talking about Psi 2000. They look...

    HTF REVIEW: Star Trek - The Complete First Season

    Thank you very much, Bill, for your hard work chasing down the answers to these questions. Here's an update on issue 7 regarding "The Naked Time"... the flashing to black on the bridge viewscreen has not been corrected on the new season set. It's possible the original masters included this...

    HTF REVIEW: Star Trek - The Complete First Season

    I agree, Britton! I will also be in line to buy these sets. Despite the fact I hope Paramount fixes the mastering errors, I haven't lost sight of the fact that these DVDs absolutely look and sound awesome! Paramount and the DVD producers did a great job. The end result is a very positive...

    HTF REVIEW: Star Trek - The Complete First Season

    I have e-mailed Bill Hunt at thedigitalbits.com with as much information on the mastering errors that I could find and/or recall. As he said, he has an inside source at Paramount that could enlighten us on all this, so be sure to keep an eye on his website or this forum for details!

    HTF REVIEW: Star Trek - The Complete First Season

    Dave, thanks a lot for this information on the opening theme. But I have to admit I'm a bit confused because I remember the discussion on this forum about the first 13 episodes having altered theme music, and a reply from Paramount about the issue, promising to fix it beginning with "The Galileo...

    HTF REVIEW: Star Trek - The Complete First Season

    Hi Bill! That's me! Good to hear from you. I've been enjoying your website for a long, long time now! I'll send you that list this weekend. Thanks for the investigation!

    HTF REVIEW: Star Trek - The Complete First Season

    Scott and Ron, Thank you for your excellent reporting on this new set! I just thought of something that could help us determine if Paramount is fixing those mastering problems on the original 40 DVD set for this new release, and I'm wondering if you two could check some of these episodes out...

    dvd players @ best buy

    Brent, I, too, bought the Sony from Best Buy last week. I have been very impressed! If there is a chroma bug in it, I cannot see it. I've looked at various disks, including Toy Story 1, and everything looks clean to me! It plays all of my DVD-R, -RW, and +RWs like a charm! I think you will...

    Star Trek:Next Gen for $79.99 + shipping at Playcentric

    Colin, I'm sorry to hear about what happened to your set. I e-mailed Playcentric and shared my concern about your experience. A rep e-mailed back promptly, said he would address the shipping department about that, and told me he'd make sure I received Season 2 in appropriate packaging. So...

    Star Trek:Next Gen for $79.99 + shipping at Playcentric

    ;) I placed my order last night. Season 2 for $83.99 shipped... First Class Air Mail! The price was right. This is the first time I've ordered from Playcentric. If it arrives close to the street date, I'll be more than satisfied.

    Paramount: A call for a separate TOS extras DVD

    Martin, Thank you very much for the prompt reply. Even though I'd love to see an extras DVD, I know your plate is very full, and at least I know what to expect now. Thanks for a great run of TOS DVDs. I will enjoy them for years to come. --Daron

    Paramount: A call for a separate TOS extras DVD

    Dear Mr. Blythe, and fellow TOS fans who bought all the DVDs: I have the perfect solution to make all those happy (like me) who purchased the entire TOS DVD collection, without extras... and also relieve Paramount some anxiety over not releasing the series in box sets. Paramount should issue...

    Star Trek TOS- 40 and 2 "Cages"

    >>Trek fans are insane in general and if you piss them off too much they throw bitch cakes all over the place. Well, gentlemen, when you consider the fact that we TOS fans have had next to no extras on our beloved TOS DVDs, I think we're entitled to at least both versions of this important...

    Got my new Dell Inspiron 8100

    Jason, I'm curious. Have you resolved the problem with the blurry DVD playback? The reason I ask is I'm considering buying this model to do a lot of DVD watching on, and I hope the display ends up being razor sharp and clear! I can't spring for an HDTV at this point, for reasons I won't...

    Paramount: Star Trek: Revisited

    Absolutely, Chris. Surprisingly, I'm not getting a lot of response to the idea of an extras-only DVD. I fear if people who want it don't express their support for it, the project won't happen. I'm one of many who have spent a lot of hard-earned money on this DVD collection. I feel an...

    Paramount: Star Trek: Revisited

    Also, perhaps there are old TV Guide articles and covers that could be included with this. Paramount also put out an "Inside Star Trek" VHS tape a couple years back, including priceless interviews with members of the original production team, and former NBC execs. Maybe they could get ahold of...

    Paramount: Star Trek: Revisited

    I would love to have the bloopers included on this release, of course. But with or without them, I believe this disk would be a big seller. You could also include things like rare photos, or TV Guide advertisements... maybe even a documentary about the making of what were then groundbreaking...

    Paramount: Star Trek: Revisited

    I just know I'm not alone on this. There has to be many, many more TOS fans out there who would be willing to shell-out the collective big bucks for this. Think of it! This material is largely unreleased. Unfortunately, we would be stuck without specific episode commentary. But as someone...

    Paramount: Star Trek: Revisited

    Mr. Blythe, I would be interested in your reaction to this idea. Since it's been announced there are no plans to release the original Star Trek series in boxed sets, how about releasing a single or two-DVD set with extras only? This would be very similar to the upcoming "Matrix: Revisited"...

    Paramount Star Trek

    Me too! I think putting Enterprise out soon is a good idea. Witness The Sopranos, and Sex and the City.

    Paramount - Are some Star Trek TOS DVD's edited differently?

    Just an addition to my last post, since I think I sounded too grumpy in it... I am very pleased with the TOS DVDs on the whole! I watched Elaan of Troyus last night. The quality is unbelievable, especially considering the episode's age. I'm sure it takes hundreds of hours to do these right...

    Paramount - Are some Star Trek TOS DVD's edited differently?

    Joel, It's been awhile since I've seen the Tholian Web on VHS, and I gave my copy away. But now that you mention it, the cut scene you described sounds familiar. I agree with you that this is unacceptable. Hopefully, Paramount will reinsert the cut scene, and reissue the DVD. Someone...

    Paramount - Are some Star Trek TOS DVD's edited differently?

    I tried to post this reply to the Trek BBS, where the thread started... but it isn't accepting new members. So I'll post here. I don't believe this episode was cut for the DVD as described. As I recall, in the original version, the first time we discover McCoy found the antitote is when Spock...

    Laptops to view DVDs with Dolby Headphone

    Here's a follow up to my post: I just got off the phone with Cyberlink technical support, the makers of PowerDVD. They say Dolby Headphone should work on any laptop, provided it's loaded with the full version of its software. Any sound card should work. So is there anyone out there who is...

    Laptops to view DVDs with Dolby Headphone

    I am looking to purchase a new notebook computer, specifically to watch DVDs on with something like PowerDVD, and to use that software's Dolby Headphone feature. The goal is to give me a positive home theater experience, on a vivid LCD screen, and good 5.1-like sound that won't wake the family...

    Paramount - Star Trek TV series DVDs

    Martin, Sorry to read more into your post than was there. Thank you for keeping us up to date on the Original Series DVDs. Even though I think the idea of boxed sets is a good one, I want you to know I am thoroughly enjoying the DVDs you are producing! TOS has never looked and sounded...

    Paramount - Star Trek TV series DVDs

    But Mikel is right! The anniversary is September 8th... with the first episode of Enterprise set to air just about three weeks after that. Maybe Paramount is gearing up for a big announcement! They have tons of material that would make an original series box set very special...behind the...

    Paramount - Star Trek TV series DVDs

    Joel, I noticed the very same thing! I do indeed believe Martin was trying to send us a message about future TOS DVDs with extras. Condition green. All is well. :) If that's true, I'll be a very happy camper. --Daron

    Paramount - Star Trek TV series DVDs

    Martin, Anything new yet on what to expect from the complete line of Star Trek TV series DVDs? Extras? Pricing? And will the original series ever be rereleased in boxed sets with extras? Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions! --Daron
