We were fortunate enough to be in attendance at a panel about the release of the ‘Roddenberry Vaults’ where some snippets were previewed.
Our minds were blown knowing there were additional scenes or dialogue that never made it into the final version.
Can you imagine watching these for the first time?! We think we know Star Trek like the back of our hand and now suddenly there’s something new after 50 years!
Check out our review of the panel:
This three-disc Blu-ray gives fans unprecedented access to never-before-seen footage from the production of Star Trek: The Original Series.
During the shooting of Star Trek, bits and pieces of episodic footage were left on the cutting room floor and later preserved in film canisters by The Roddenberry Estate. This footage now found, has been painstakingly catalogued, transferred, analyzed, and pieced together these Vault materials, which include alternate takes, deleted scenes, omitted dialogue, outtakes, and original visual FX elements. STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES – THE RODDENBERRY VAULT includes twelve classic episodes chosen for their relevance to the Vault materials, and presented in 1080p High Definition with both DTS 7.1 Master Audio as well as newly restored original Mono. Eleven of these episodes contain isolated music tracks. Newly recorded audio commentaries appear on three fan-favorite episodes. Each of the set’s three discs feature documentaries that weave together the previously unseen Vault materials with all-new interviews by key creative and production personnel and famous fans.
