Our favorite loyal reader in Chicago sends us the latest promo for this weekends Star Trek Remastered episode.
Wow……that looks good! could it be that they’re getting better on a weekly basis? I have to wonder…..where our these CGI – group from? Is all the work done here or abroad? Nice to see these subtle changes you know?
That shot on the viewscreen of the Enterprise spiralling down into orbit was FANTASTIC!
I can’t wait for the episode with Captain Christopher, that should provide some amazing sequences!
“Risk gentlemen, that’s what this starship is all about….that’s…why we’re…..aboard her!”
I haven’t seen anyone mention that episode with the giant single celled space amoeba, that is another episode they can go all out on, impressive, most impressive!
It looks like the atmosphere on the planet is moving incredibly rapidly even before the Enterprise begins its spiral downward, which is a nice touch. It looks like a Hurricane Katrina planet!
Well…..I know of no weather condition (none exists at all!) that would cause any planet to spiral so rapidly. Of course this is only Tv – but! Though wouldn’t it be neat after researching to find a wayward planet that does just that? Your so called….Hurricaine Katrina planet?
It’s pretty obscured in the preview but I wonder if they’ve done a digital matte painting in Engineering to replace or extend the original forced-perspective set. WIth the video effect added to the preview it’s impossible to tell.
Ditto on the “amoeba” episode. I’m also looking forward to “Spectre of the Gun”, because I think there’s much that could be done with the skies to enhance the “eerie” aspect of the episode, which is it’s strength… All of my other looking-forward choices would be obvious ones.
I can’t recall exactly but, didn’t the rotation of Psi-2000 actually rapidly increase simultaneously to the Enterprise nosediving into the atmosphere?
Also, I don’t quite recall the figures but what is the minimum velocity of an object that maintains an orbit?
I know it’s trailblazin’ speed, so that combined with the planet increasing its rotation provides for a pretty dynamic orbital viewscreen shot.
oh sulu, you love to be tackled by kirk, dont you?
And good lord #10 you just had to make a comment didn’t you…

I found some images of the CBs Digital crew working on Star Trek here …
Strictly tongue -in-cheek here: do you suppose they will “remaster” Apollo’s mysteriously-vanished aureolas? [sheepish grin]
I’m much more curious how they will alter Apollo’s rather unceremonious, lackluster loss of his temple! Having seen what can be done with the old red haze fading effect in Devil, I have high hopes. Also, I’d like to see some real PALPATINE type lightning shooting from his fingers, this IS Apollo after all puny mortals.
Let’s go gather some laurel leaves and kick back and watch The Naked Time.
I watched the episode tonight and DL’d the trailer here. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. NO OTHER Trek compares with the original “Star Trek!”
This episode rocked and the effects worked marvelously!
