HD DVD Version of Star Trek Just As Corny
Star Trek finally made it to the 21st century. A new hybrid HD DVD/DVD box set, released Tuesday, delivers the original series' first-season shows, digitally remastered and looking better than ever before.
The exterior space shots in Star Trek: The Original Series -- revamped using today's CGI techniques -- now show planets and starships that look more like NASA's finest imagery than the '60s-era special effects that were included when the show first aired.
But these new effects come at quite a price: $195 MSRP. Do you really want to spend that much for bad writing, mediocre acting and overly dramatic music? Well, what Trekker would be without this edition, really?
