“Mirror, Mirror” Remastered Goof [UPDATED] November 14, 2006by Matt Wright , Filed under: TOS Remastered , trackback
Many of the loyal remastered Star Trek viewers caught an odd glitch in the showing of Mirror, Mirror this weekend. Just after the mirror Checkov tries to kill Kirk and the next scene with Kirk, McCoy and Scotty in the Captains quarters there is footage of the Enterprise traveling at warp speed, it looks like raw footage from the original (not-CGI) credits. It is totally out of place and of course the old Enterprise footage that wouldn’t be used anyway. Don’t worry, the folks at CBS already know about it and have fixed it for future showings
A Star Trek.com article has been put up to address the concerns with comments from the Okuda’s and Dave Rossi:
We apologize to all of the fans who caught our mistake, and we thank everyone for your interest in Star Trek: Remastered. We love Star Trek, too, and we hope you keep watching!
Trekmovie.com sources tell us that CBS Digital isn’t to blame. Our sources tell us this is an error from
Sunset Digital (who clean up the original film elements and insert the new CGI shots). [UPDATE: TrekMovie has learned that the error wasn't Sunset Digital either...so it remains a mystery as to how this edit happened] This isn’t the first time there has been an editing goof in Trek Remastered, in City on the Edge of Forever there was a missing new Tricorder matte shot.
A second issue with this week’s episode is that an odd film scratch (or some similar abberation) can be seen in the close up shot of mirror universe Spock on the bridge.
