    I know, it really is a mess with Star Trek (TOS)... for example:
    The first two episodes ("The Man Trap" and "Charlie X") bore a title card which had the title graphic with Gene Roddenberry's name below it. These two episodes not only had the electric violin version of the theme tune, but William Shatner's narration is a bit different than on "The Naked Time" and thereafter, with no pause between "These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise" and "Its five-year mission." "The Naked Time" and "Mudd's Women" had the same electric violin version of the theme, but with the more familiar S1 opening credits without Gene Roddenberry's name in it, and also had both "Starring" and "Also Starring" placed above the respective billings of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.

    Right? The DVDs tried to correct the main title music, but they put the electric violin theme on the first 10 production episodes, which wasn't right (The Corbomite Maneuver never had it before, neither did Balance of Terror). And the end credits never had the EV theme restored on the DVDs. The blu rays are totally inconsistent when it comes to the "mono" track of the opening credits music.

    The sound mix for Trek is a complete botch.

    The A&E print of Storm Center had a VERY short intro. Just from the frog on. No idea if that was just a syndie thing or maybe a rerun or "make room for previews" edit by the network. Sometimes a rerun print or the wrong version gets released (Dallas has a couple of syndicated episodes in the latter years).

    Another possibility is a situation like what happened with THE TWILIGHT ZONE, that is that what exists today is the way the film was edited for RE-RUN status by the network.

    Except for "Where No Man Has Gone Before," they didn't. Only these five episodes had this version of the theme tune originally:
    1x01 - "The Man Trap"
    1x02 - "Charlie X"
    1x03 - "Where No Man Has Gone Before"
    1x04 - "The Naked Time"
    1x06 - "Mudd's Women"
    So on the DVDs, they got the opening title wrong on eight of the first 13 episodes in production order.

    The Enemy Within also had it (you skipped that one). I heard it was the first 7, but I have never found confirmation of the order other than Mark Cushman's book, but he's such an unreliable sourse, I really don't know. Not even the guys who did the TOS CD box set found that info.

    I'm willing to believe Mudd's Women might have had it because the theme and that score were recorded on the same day, but I'm pretty sure it didn't - but my memory of those pre-1985 reruns are sketchy at best.

    I love when this thread gets going like this--with multiple knowledgeable contributors, when the discussion isn't focused on the infamous music debacle, when there's some much expertise on display. It's simply a pleasure to sit back and read...

    In the Most Wanted Edition with the bonus DVD and Pete Rugolo music soundtrack CD is there any difference in terms of content with the CD to the standalone CD?

    I believe the standalone CD is a CD-R MOD whist I assume the MWE is pressed? I assume it doesn't have the cover too.

    That standalone used to be a standard redbook CD. I have it.

    That CD is different from the Most Wanted CD in track titles and the way they were contained on the CD. There are differences, but I don't have the details about which cues are missing or extra.

    I believe you're asking whether any differences exist between the CBS bonus music CD, and the earlier Rugolo Fugitive music CD released by Silva Screen.

    Between the two CDs, there are many tracks which are identical, but there are also many differences. Here is the list that I compiled some time ago.

    There are new tracks on the CD that comes with TMWE. People like to blame lawyers for the music debacle, but I can tell you it was a lawyer's hard work that gleaned those additional tracks, got them on the CD, and got that CD in the set--all done just for the fans.

    Okay having compared the DVD and the Goodtimes Home Video versions of Fear in a Desert City, the intro narrations are identical. The only difference is the DVD cuts abruptly to the longer version from the train wreck to Kimble running, with the stock music stinger as Kimble falls and the announcer says "The FUGITIVE!" The Goodtimes tape has the Pete Rugolo brass hit that's heard in all of the shorter versions of the opening.

    So, it seems as if this print had the longer version originally and - for whatever reason - they grafted on the shorter. Maybe because people were used to it, or maybe the original film elements had been lost, but the music is different over the title or the series in the DVD than in the VHS. That indicates to me that two different versions of the aired episode intro existed. This could have been done in '63 and this was the print they transferred. I have no idea why it's like this, but there it is.

    There is no change in time (other than the compression of the Goodtimes tape)
