    I've heard a rumored June release date for Star Trek II WOK Collector's Edition (I think Paramount is calling it?). I'm sure the ABC footage will be added as a suppliment. If they add it to the movie that's fine with me too. I think director Nick Meyer approved the footage for the ABC broadcast.

    Has anyone heard anything on specs or rumored specs?

    probably a Shatner/Nimoy commentary, they are under contract for multiple commentaries.

    The footage will be back in the movie, Meyer always regretted cutting it, which is why it's back in the ABC version.

    Why do you want the theatrical cut? It's not Meyer's preferred cut, and the movie is much stronger with the footage intact

    Jeff, I'll be holding on to the bare-bones version as well. I want to have the theatrical version because I always prefer to have the choice of watching the theatrical versions or special editions.

    After the new audio mix on Trek 1, I HOPE we get a new 5.1 mix. The old one on original DVD was so-so.

    All I can say is bring this sucker on! What would be cool is a segment on disc 2 about the Genesis sequence and its place in the annals of the history of CGI, among other features.

    I, too, will hold onto the existing disc of ST2:TWoK if the Original Theatrical Presentation is not on the SE coming up. I don't mind the double-dip here, to get the Director's Cut AND the extras...but I fell in love with the Theatrical Cut, y'know?

    I wouldn't expect specs from Paramount until about 2 months prior to release. (see my sig)

    Again, how many minutes are being added, or how much longer is the ABC cut? Thanks.

    Count me in for the special edition of Trek II also when it arrives. I too have the current movie only version on dvd but eagerly look forward to checking out the extra footage. I assume it will get a new audio/video re-working as well?

    If the ABC TV scenes are added to the movie for the CE, then I will buy the new edition this June. If not, then the picture and sound will have to be an improvement over the original DVD, otherwise, I won't buy it.

    Guess I'll have to wait until the official announcement br Paramount.

    I had heard that Nimoy and Shatner had been contracted for the remaining films that they appear in. Commentary should be great. A commentary with Nick Meyer would be awesome too.

    I believe the ABC footage is only a couple of minutes if that.

    Are there surviving cut scenes from the film?

    I think Digital Bits had reported an announcement some time soon. Two months from now seems kind of far off to me for a release announcement. I think it will be sooner.

    Perhaps a Nemesis trailer would appear on the disc too? I had heard they wanted to have a teaser trailer possibly done by May or June. That would be cool too.

    Count me in for "Star Trek II-The Wrath of Khan Collector's Edition" Hopefully the Video will be reworked to take out the excessive Red in the Skin Tones making them more natural? I'm happy for the extra footage too!

    Hopefully they'll fix this little problem:

    During the battle in the Mutara Nebula, after Captain Kirk orders Chekov to fire photon torpedoes, the film cuts away to an exterior close-up of the torpedo launching, then for a split-second, cuts back to the shot of Kirk. It's almost like one of Tyler Durden's tricks.
