    Is the alcove mentioned in the article the memory wall? I couldn't think of anything else in that movie that would be a memory wall.

    Really looking forward to this - some good questions were asked.

    Great article Jacob!
    I've been anxiously awaiting this title since the announcement of the first DVD to bear the Star Trek title.
    Does anyone find it ironic that the entire library of Star Trek movies will be available available before even one of the Star Wars movies?
    After all, it was the success of Star Wars that made Paramount re-think their plans for the planned television series, "Star Trek - Phase Two" and green-light the production of theatrical feature.
    I'd like to give Paramount a nod of thanks for providing us with the titles on DVD. Granted, bare bones as most of the titles are, they have given us something, until which time they are re-visited, and all given "Special Edition" treatment.
    ...and Star Wars has been where?

    Hmm, they haven't exactly treated the other movies well, though, have they?
    And now we get told they're going to do SE's on each one. If Lucas had done that (non-anamorphic, badly done prints - and he could have) we'd have been laying into him for the same old tired money-making venture he's always up to.
    Frankly, the Star Trek movies have been release even more times than the Star Wars ones and at lease with SW it hasn't been in boxed sets that claim to be the complete set and then there's another from nowhere in the cinemas. Paramount's money grabbing knows no bounds for video sets.
    I will gladly wait to see what Lucas does in his limited situation (his company only does one thing at a time due to staff I would think - and we've got Episode II coming).
    One day I hope to own all the even numbered Star Trek films in beautiful anamorphic video, hopefully with extras.
