Remember when George Lucas digitally remastered the original Star Wars trilogy?
He said it was to "finish the film the way it was meant to be." Most of
the changes were cosmetic, enhancing the films with special effects
that were not available when the films were first made. In a sense, we
now have a similar version of Star Trek: The Original Series (ST: TOS).

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?
