"are officially in discussions with"

"Now, nothing is 100% so you guys all need to be patient."

Not sure why anyone is really that excited. I want TMP in 4K along with the other Original Series cast flicks, but when the Bits is telling you "to be patient"...well they've been telling us TRUE LIES and THE ABYSS are "coming soon" for how many YEARS now?

I don't think we'll see any 4K "classic" Trek until the next TREK movie comes out -- Tarantino's or otherwise -- so it's going to be awhile.

I like the theatrical cut too. In fact I prefer it. I wasn't crazy about all of the "remastered effects" and I like some of the bits they took out ("Viewer off!!"). I hope the TC is included along with the Director's Cut.

Practical effects in 4k will be amazing. I only have the first six on VHS and I'd love a reason to revisit the lot of them. So many memories from childhood seeing them for the first time.

Since it's Paramount, I suspect we will get individual discs of everything and then a boxed set later on like with Mission: Impossible and Bourne.

Every Trek Fan Ever , in their heart of hearts, they know the TOS isn't that great of a show..

The braver of the Trek community is willing to admit it .

Bullshit! It is a great show! It may be a bit dated and campy by later standards, but it's a milestone in television history and in science fiction in general, along with the original The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. Great, intelligent, thought provoking writing. Only those who have small ignorant minds and a disregard for the past would dismiss the brilliance of Star Trek: The Original Series.

And I don't even consider myself a Trekkie/Trekker. I'm just a fan of great science fiction.

TMP in a good 4K form is and always has been my #1 want, but NOT the so-called director's cut. Sound mix is atrocious and VFX are a real mixed batch, including some deliberately 'animated on 2s' stuff that looks totally out of place against the meticulous beautiful animation in the rest of the feature. The theatrical has its own really awful bits, but not as terrible for me as the latter version.

Star Trek II DC is just as good as the DC of The Motion Picture, but each has its specific target genre within sci-fi. Alien and Aliens, similarly.



Star Trek IV is just pure, joyous fun yet still well made as an adventure romp... then they pretty much slump from there on out IMHO.

I think the director's version is seven or eight minutes shorter than the ABC-TV (slv for super long version) cut, but yeah, still longer than the theatrical.

Some of the most solid TOS episodes were written by the best of the best sci-fi writers of the day too.

VI is a fantastic film; probably my third favorite after IV and TMP.

That's if they don't re-do some of the effects shots with CG models like the original SD mastered DC, albeit in 2k or 4k.


If you recall, some of the effects weren't even completed when the theatrical cut was released to theaters in the late 70's.

And we really need the rest of them restored and released so hopefully people will support this effort and buy it on day one.
They really ought to just do them all properly. Lots of people probably holding out for them to be a complete set. Of course they will want to push people to buy the 1st film or maybe even the 1st two as individual releases, I think all this "pre-order now or it's doooooommmmed" stuff is just a transparent attempt for one last double dip opportunity.

Maybe do an original movie series set in 4K UHD, and if that sells, then do the TNG films as well as a separate set.

I wish they would treat this like the Close Encounters set - All 3 versions remastered on a new Blu-ray edition:
Theatrical version - what I saw at the theater in 79
Special Edition - the version I had on VHS for years and probably know best
Director's version - version I still have on DVD and have watched probably 2 times.

The theatrical version and the SLV will work with branching, but the DC will need to be on a separate disc -- just too many changes including entire sound design in virtually every scene.

Two disc set sound fine to me, but I will buy the DC alone as it is my favorite of the three.

As mentioned, they couldn't branch it and studios are loathe to put multiple 4k discs in a pack for the same movie.



It will probably be a two disc set with the DC and theatrical, or separate disc releases.

discussions with Paramount about FINALLY bringing the Directorís Edition to Blu-ray and 4K in a proper upgraded remaster. More importantly, he was given permission to say this, which I think we can all take as a good sign. Naturally, the room erupted with excitement.

Now, nothing is 100%
so you guys all need to be patient. I will have more to say about this next week for reasons Iíll be able to better explain then.
Click.bait.


It was said they are are working on a new master, with the goal to getting it on BD.
However this is a wishlist thread.
True lies and the abyss have new masters, where are those discs? With Arsenals hope of the title?
