    Don’t forget there is a big wide world out there beyond the USA. In Canada, Discovery was shown the old fashioned way, as a regular program on the “Space” channel. After each showing, it was no longer available. If I wanted the series in HD, and not just the DVD copies I made myself with my recordable DVD player, I had to buy the HD set.

    The Good Fight is also on disc, but that's the only other one I know of.

    Discovery was - and still is - available to stream in Canada, as well, on Crave.

    The Blu Ray has a different mix then the theatrical as well. 7.1

    I’m glad the audio was finished for the directors cut. This is what Robert wise wanted as well.

    At this point we will most likely never have the directors edition in had or UHd. Robert wise and his leverage to make the project happen are gone.

    The 1979 theatrical work print will live on though in bd and had iTunes.

    Never give up, never surrender!

    Star Trek The Motion Picture remastered in all its versions will be done.

    True, but it sounds like it was based on the theatrical audio, rather than the director's cut. I believe the sound effects are all the original ones.

    I think I saw that "hybrid" print that others have mentioned a number of years ago. A theater in West L.A. did a series of midnight screenings of all (at the time) 11 Trek films. They called the print of TMP the "repertory version," and it was the theatrical cut with a few scenes from the TV cut physically spliced in. But years later, I saw a rather faded print of the actual theatrical cut.

    What Josh and others have pointed out is probably true. With declining physical media sales, studios may be reluctant to go to too much trouble on catalog releases. That said, different studios seem to be dealing with it in different ways. If Star Trek belonged to WB or Sony (or even Universal), I think we would have seen better releases of the original cast's films by now.

    We need the authentic 2.0 surround for 1979 work print fans!! : )

    The podcast ended on an up note. Toools and technology are much better now and there is hope that a 4k transfer will eventually happen.

    I enjoyed Discovery, it was shown on Netflix in the UK, i love the 2.39:1 aspect ratio and hope they keep it for season 3.

    Its the fortieth anniversary of Star Trek the motion picture, come on Paramount, spend some bucks and redo the fx of the directors cut and release on UHD 4k disc.

    TMP director's cut for the 40th anniversary would be a dream come true.
    I wish they cared enough for the fans who've been loyal for half a century to give us this one gift

    I’d have to look on my shelves, but weren’t these 3 movies also available in 3D?

    This is not directed at anyone reporting the set is coming out or what is included. Rather, it is directed at Paramount and CBS...

    [fake enthusiasm on]Yay...another repack of something already available to buy.[fake enthusiasm off]

    Blarg. No thanks.

    So, should the title be modified to include "UHD" in it now?

    Welcome back John! And thanks for that post about Star Trek The Motion Picture. I took a quick look at Trekcore and trekmovie and the Digital Bits in case they might have news on this Star Trek TMP blu ray. I would love for this to be a new remastering and the coming of the TOS films in remastered releases.

    As much as I’ve posted on these threads that Paramount has to do a proper release of the Director’s Edition of TMP for the 40th, this one looks like a repackage. Perhaps to commemorate the 40th. This would be a big disappointment and missed opportunity.

    If it is a remaster, maybe we’ll hear about it at Comic Con and or the big Star Trek convention in August.

    I'm sure we'd have heard if there was a new transfer by now. Paramount is pretty notorious for repackaging existing discs.
