Comments

1. Nelson - January 18, 2007

Hmm, here’s an instance where the original SFX of Yonada looks better, I am sorry to say. But again, it’s a tiny QT movie I am looking at. The Enterprise looks good though!

We will see an new CGI asteroid at least for Paradise Syndrone.

2. Nelson - January 18, 2007

Forgot to add, this is really great that trekmovie has so much of an “in” that we’re getting these great advanced looks of upcoming shows!

3. Tom - January 18, 2007

I really enjoy these previews. Even if it does sound like the announcer is saying Star TRACK instead of Star TREK. Or maybe my hearing just isn’t what it was in the late sixties.

4. Dr. Image - January 18, 2007

Yes. Thanks Anthony!
(I really wish they’d get some color into that deflector dish…. they’re getting so close to getting the E just right…just a few little things to go…)

5. Tom - January 18, 2007

But I agree the Big E looks pretty good in this preview.

6. Adam Cohen - January 18, 2007

I love this episode. What a great McCoy story too.

There is a nice continuation of this story in the Star Trek Novel “Ex Machina” in case anyone is interested. The story takes place very soon after the events in TMP, and the fallout from Kirk’s intervention in the original series is dealt with in a fantastic fashion. Anthony, i can always write a review of it if you like!

Great episode, I’m very stoked to see it again.

7. Grammar Slammer - January 18, 2007

Comment to the CBS promo department…the title graphic on “Its mission…lethal” has an improper use of a possessive apostrophe. It should be as I have written it, not “It’s mission…lethal.”

8. Dave - January 18, 2007

Adam, I agree with your comments about the book, ‘Ex Machina’ . I think fans here would like to read your review. In fact a book review section would be great. There’s so many wonderful novels out there. I love collecting all books related to TOS. “Ex Machina” is one of my favourites!! Thank you for mentioning it.

Also, again the remastered Enterprise looks great. This is all they need in the movie Star Trek Xl

9. scott - January 18, 2007

A new preview? Let the torrent of complaints begin!

10. ZtoA - January 18, 2007

Give me a break!! You can’t judge the CG quality of that asteroid from a tiny low-res QT movie.

11. John N. - January 18, 2007

#6 – Adam

There’s an empty “Review” stub just begging for your attention over at “Memory Beta”, the “Non-canon Star Trek Wiki”.

12. diabolik - January 18, 2007

Looks good! Especially the missles or whatever they are coming at them.

Of course, I’m not a jaded expert.

13. Kelvington - January 18, 2007

You know I like the new previews, but I wish that once in a while they would just redo the original “next mission” episode trailers. I doubt they will fix them for the DVD’s but here’s hoping.

As for the look and feel, I though it was great, I’ll bet we see a new punishment effect or thing under the skin.

14. hitch1969© - January 18, 2007

This work by CBS-D = highly mac in the pants and very honky tonk badonkadonk® overall.

Hey Grammar Slammer™… improper use of a possessive apostrophes on the word “it” are my forte, as well as my achilles tendonitis. WHO LOVES YA BABY?

old hitch1969© does and declares you MAC IN THE PANTS with 50 gb ipod nano giga in the underpants!!! You rock the mothergrabbin cizzznock in my sizzznock, beeeotch!!!

best!!

=h=

15. Kevin - January 18, 2007

I thought “it’s” was a contraction of “it is”

16. T Negative - January 18, 2007

The Enterprise looks very good here. I was hoping Yonada would have a dull red attmosphere to mach the surface set. Oh well.

Hey CBS digital, lets get some new angles of the E firing phasers mmmmkayyyyyy.

17. Scott V. - January 18, 2007

Looks Intresting. Yonada doesnt look like a giant mole in space anymore. :P Serously I wonder if some of effects shots will be reused for the “The Paradise Syndrome” as well. I’m not a big fan of the third season but this was really good one too. Not too ecstatic on the missles but I’m willing to give a chance

With every viewing I’ve seen they are getting better.

18. Cal - January 18, 2007

Big TYPO in this Preview, CBS!!!

“It’s Mission” means “it is Mission.” You want “Its Mission.” Sheesh.

19. scott - January 18, 2007

Why would the outside of Yonada have a dull red atmosphere to match the artificial red atmosphere that’s on the inside of the hollow asteroid? For you see, the world is hollow, and thus I can touch the dull red sky that’s inside the hollow part.

20. Mark T. - January 18, 2007

#16-

I believe, with regard to phaser firing angles, CBS-D is hindered by the timing of the edits and the staging of the shots. If you have missiles coming in from the right, you’re going to have to have the Enterprise on the left . Otherwise, you end up breaking that pesky 180 degree rule and everything looks like poopy. Plus, they have to shoot it from that traditional up angle. It’s dramatic.

Perhaps it is a time/budget saving maneuver. Maybe they could have re-choreographed the sequence in the screen time alloted. However, they probably had other, more labor intensive shots to do. So, they go back to the “PhaserFire001″ sequence they already have on their hard drive. Tweak the position of the ship and camera a little, and shazam. Shot accomplished.

Just this geek’s opinion… Besides, as everyone else has said, wait for “Doomsday” and “Ultimate Computer”. I bet there will be new firing angles galore in those eps.

21. Mark T. - January 18, 2007

Scott #19

LOL!

(Boy, I love this site)

22. T Negative - January 18, 2007

#19
I was always under the impression that they beamed down to the SURFACE of the asteroid and the the elevator tubes took our heroes to the hollow part. The red sky was put there because the special effects guys didn’t want to pay $$$$$ for a huge starfield on the set, which is how it should have looked if our heroes beamed down to the surface of a huge asteroid. By having an attmosphere it would explain why Kirk and company could breathe and explain the red sky at the beam down point.

If I’m way off here than it’s off to the agony booth for me I guess.

23. T Negative - January 18, 2007

Scott #19 is right. There shouldn’t be a red attmosphere around Yonada. I just watched it.

I’m headed to the agony booth. followed by several treatments of the agonizer.

24. MACK N. THUPANZ - January 18, 2007

That preview in now man it’s real now – do you reach brothers!

25. Sean4000 - January 18, 2007

Good stuff indeed. Nice clean up work but, I’ll reserve judgment until the episode airs. I am just waiting for this week’s re master. Can’t wait for the barrier VFX shots.

26. Chris - January 18, 2007

#19…that’s how the episode got it’s title. The old man they meet up with and dies for telling them that he climbed a mountain on the “surface” and was able to touch the sky.

The “red sky” is part of the outer shell, so the landing party beamed inside the asteriod.

27. CmdrR - January 18, 2007

It’s is the contraction. The possessive form is its.

28. CmdrR - January 18, 2007

I know, because Im a jurnalist and we never mak mistakes.

ps- This is my favorite website. I really love the fun and the well considered comments and information.

29. CmdrR - January 18, 2007

Oh, and since someone brought up Trek novels… This weekend is “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” so look up “Strangers from the Sky.” It’s a prequel with Gary Mitchell. Some fun concepts throughout.

30. Dave - January 18, 2007

Yes, great book, “Strangers from the Sky”. I have the earlier book, but recently they have reprinted it with a new cover and a new forward by Author, Margaret Wander Bonanno. (Part of the 40 years of Star Trek celebrations) I’m reading it again.

31. Adam Cohen - January 18, 2007

Wow “Strangers From The Sky”!!!

I read that in 1989! Great book from what I remember (I was 13!) Scary how time passes us by.

32. Picardsucks - January 18, 2007

Holy sh*t!!!! And story wise as Adam pointed out a wonderful McCoy story as well. Never understood where all the season 3 angst came from, other than Spock’s Brain and Way to Eden ( Checkin out to Eden,Yeaaa Yeaaa Brother!!!) I thouroughly enjoyed it and as I have so couragously previously exclaimed The Empath is my favorite of all time. I am so jacked up this is so cool. Now if we can only get remastered Six Million Dollar Man I’d really be in heaven!!!!

33. James Heaney - January 19, 2007

Wait… was the Big E firing phasers with TNG-era sound effects? Or was that just me?

34. Kevin - January 19, 2007

yeah, I think it’s just the preview sound editing. It’s the same generic sound they used to put in the old TNG through ENT previews. They were always different in the episodes though.

35. Bart - January 19, 2007

I entirely agree about the angles the Enterprise is shown in, especially when firing phasers. They need to be more different!

They did great angles with the Enterprise-D in several battle positions during TNG’s run.

http://tng.trekcore.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=106&pos=359

Why not do this with the original Enterprise?
ps. Why are the phasers blue in the original series? During the movies and in TNG they are always orange/red.

36. Toonoon - January 19, 2007

^6. There is also a prequel of sorts in the Section 31 TOS novel “Cloak” where McCoy begins to suspect he has the disease. Its an excellent piece of continuity with the series.

37. Holo J - January 19, 2007

#20 “Besides, as everyone else has said, wait for “Doomsday” and “Ultimate Computer”. I bet there will be new firing angles galore in those eps.”

Hey Mark, I am really hoping we see some more exciting new angles on these as well. I hope they don’t play it safe on the Ultimate Computer. I’d love to see some “Wrath of Khan” type firing shots for this, instead of just the standard phasers firing shot as in the above preview.

I have to say apart from the standard phaser firing shot not being changed the asteroid and Enterprise are looking pretty good to me.

38. Tony - January 19, 2007

#32…. agreed on Season 3 eps. I will say that I do agree with the overall sentiment that the show was stronger earlier and that Seasons 1 and 2 were overall better, but Season 3 was nothing to be ashamed of. Some of my favorite eps from the series are in Season 3, including the mid-season stretch of four great episodes in a row (production order, not aired order): Is In Truth…, The Empath, The Tholian Web and For The World Is Hallow…

Let’s not also forget the Enterprise Incident was this season, and one of my personal favorites (I’m a sucker for the TOS-era time travel stories; before later shows mutilated them {VOY, ENT}): All Our Yesterdays.

39. SPOCKBOY - January 19, 2007

Still looks cartoony,
CBS DIGITAL is run by a loony.

: )

40. scott - January 19, 2007

Re: “Strangers from the Sky” – I have very fond memories of listening to George Takei and Leonard Nimoy reading the audio book version on long family car rides when I was in high school.

41. Paul W. - January 19, 2007

Looks great! I can’t wait for this series to be available on DVD so I can see the entire episodes. I just wish one of the stations up here in Montreal carried it. My hats off to CBS Digital for all their hard work in trying to improve upon such an iconic show. Kudos!

Thank you for sharing all your stills and previews on here too… this makes me coming back. Love this site.

42. THEETrekMaster - January 19, 2007

The third season gets an undeserved bad rap. Here’s what is bad about the third season in my opinion:

1.) And The Children Shall Lead
2.) The Way to Eden
3.) Plato’s Stepchildren

I don’t even understand why Spock’s Brain gets so attacked. The concept behind it isn’t bad…it’s a matter of execution. You could take the same story and make it interesting. Spock’s Brain had one of the best musical scores from the series and was tracked into many of the third season episodes.

Overall, I liked the third season. Many of my favorite episodes are in that season. Some of the episodes were capsule episodes due to cut budget — like The Mark of Gideon and Wink of An Eye and the season seemed to drag a bit towards the end.

It’s a season that started out somewhat ambitiously and I think even though the budget was slashed the visuals are as good or better than any of the other two season.

TTM

43. Lao3D - January 19, 2007

Cool! I really like that CBS Digital is previewing episodes earlier — makes it feel like more is happening, and makes the wait between episodes more fun.

While the asteroid is much more convinvcing, I kind of miss that colorful up-lighting, unrealistic as it was. But it’s in keeping with what they’ve been doing, so nice work.

And Season Three gets its bad rap somewhat deservedly — not that there weren’t great episodes, like this one — but the clinker-to-gem ratio was WAY higher than the first two seasons. There’s still lots of fun watching, though; I haven’t laughed so hard as I did watching “Eden” recently. It was like Star Trek meets Beach Blanket Bingo!

44. Toonoon - January 19, 2007

37. All Our Yesterdays has always been a favourite of mine. It has a fantastic science fiction premise at its core and has moment almost as moving as in City on the Edge…

45. diabolik - January 19, 2007

The fake surface which fooled the passengers of the ship also fooled some viewers into thinking it was the surface of the asteriod. But, no. It had no atmosphere except inside.

Now if they could only digitally fix the silly dresses and headpieces the men are wearing. Worst costume design for an alien civilization EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

46. Adam Cohen - January 19, 2007

#35 Toonoon

Thanks for the tip. I’ll check that book out once I get through George R.R. Martin’s “A Game of Thrones.” Wish me luck!

47. scott - January 19, 2007

Worst ever? I dunno – those glittery orange placemats the dohlman’s guards wear in “Elaan of Troyus” were pretty bad.

48. Picardsucks - January 19, 2007

How could I forget All our Yesterdays another wonderful episode. How about Day of the Dove I love that too. ” Look at me…….Look…….At……..Me”

49. hitch1969© - January 19, 2007

“My pant legs hollow & I have touched my privates”

wise words. I give it an iPhone AND an imac in the pantalones. Mack N Thupanz™, you wascilly wabbit! I really need to get you a forum at hitchworld. Your grate words and writing style deserve a proper showcase. You continue to marvel me and make me swoon with your prose.

best!!

=h=

50. THEETrekMaster - January 19, 2007

What kind of drugs are you on?

Just curious…Enquiringmindzinthapantz wantz to know.

51. DEMODE - January 19, 2007

I really hope when they do show THE EMPATH, that they change the “black room” look of the episode, and add some deminsions to the set design. It looked like the whole episode took place in a high shool (black box style) drama class.

52. diabolik - January 19, 2007

Oh, nice thought, but now way are they going to spend the time and money that would take. But I wish they would too.

Looks more like a typical Lost In Space set. Almost every indoor set other than the regular sets had that “dark empty area” look beyond the set decorations. It was a cheap alternative to building a whole set. Irwin Allen liked cheap.

53. hitch1969© - January 19, 2007

THEETrekMaster™, I am on an exclusive regimen of budweiser and poontang. And to all the kids out there who read this, stay away from anything else but these two. Thats all the dope that you’re ever going to need, trust me. The rest are just distractions.

Stay focused, live a healthy lifestyle and sharpen your minds at school, I tell ‘em. Then after school, learn to drink and drive to your girlfriend’s house and when she tells you NO, that’s just a YES in the waiting. Society and the double standard have programmed this response into her… she really wants it, and you have got to give it to her, every time… swish!

You don’t see me Julie complaining now aigggght?

=h=

54. Gilliana - January 19, 2007

Hey, at least season three had very cool/realistic and convincing shots of the enterprise, that hold up better than the previous 2 sesons, or now I hate to say these cartoon animated ones they are inserting into the shows now and caloling them superior!..ha baloney they are!!!

In the third season they have no need to redo most of the very convincing flyby shots and close ups of the enterprise while engaged in battle or facing an enemy battle cruiser!

So imo …heres to prarying the dont “play” with the great fx shots of season 3 anymore!!!

55. DEMODE - January 19, 2007

#52: I was watching Battlestar Galactica today, where Baltar is on one of the Basestars, and thought that would be a good way to do it, without having to add too much. Just some erie lighting panels to brighten it up.

#53 – =h=

Paragraph 1 = good advice
Paragraph 2 = bad advice

And normally I’m a fan, so don’t flame me…

57. Dr. Image - January 19, 2007

#42 TTM- Oh, man, I couldn’t agree more!
And The Children Shall Lead is to me the ALL TIME worst ep of ANY Trek.
Spock’s Brain at least has some wit and deliberate humor, but Children is simply embarrasing.

58. Picardsucks - January 19, 2007

But And the Children Shall lead had a feverous sulu starring at what he thought was prickly phalic symbols surrounding the ship. Very funny stuff

59. hitch1969© - January 19, 2007

oh my.

60. scott - January 19, 2007

For my money, all-time worst TOS episode was “The Alternative Factor” from the first season. Its a complete mess.

61. brady - January 19, 2007

lets not forget the last worst ever episode…turnabout intruder…kirk as a woman …that actress had the biggest ass i ever saw…they tried ta hid it with those space pants that were black on the sides…i kept waiting for Kirk ta go,,,Does my ass look big in these pants? she was very assinthepants lol.1st season was of couse the best…as was 1st season of Lost in Space,before it became a big joke.

62. Lao3D - January 19, 2007

Oh, get a room.

63. THEETrekMaster - January 19, 2007

#57. Yes, And the Children is just wretched. Just plain wretched. Unwatchable. Oh…and Trek’s MOST embarassing moment EVER? — Kirk pretending to be a horse in Plato’s Stepchildren while a midget rides him (Alexander)…ok, that episode is hilarious…but just horrible.

#58. Hilarious!!! I guess I’ll have to subject myself to ATCSL just for the NEW comedic value of that scene…especially given what we know now about Mr. Takei. Funny!!!

64. An olde timey fan - January 19, 2007

Mack N. Thupanz – yo yo yo.

I dig “The Way to Eden” but my parents were “Back to the Earth”ers so it resonated.

Looking back at “Eden” from today’s world, I dig.

65. Josh T. ( Tiddlywinks) Kirk Esquire' - January 19, 2007

I havent seen anyone mention “The Savage Curtain,” that episode kicks much to do about ass, the music score is aggressive and powerful, and Kirk’s interaction with Lincoln and Colonel Green is both magnetic and enjoyable. Barry Atwater’s “Surak” is gold I tell you.

Truly a gem among season Three.

66. Thomas Jensen - January 19, 2007

I’m actually laughing out loud reading this thread. It’s truly funny and cool. No one here is being an idiot to one another. This is a great time for those of us who watched the show in the 60′s and 70′s and consider themselves the original fans.

And 40 years + later it’s another time where we get together and fuss and speak and interact because we all care in one way or another about the show.

Not that it makes us “Gods” or anything, but the times of Star Trek when it was the only show, were unique. And our thoughts and hopes about the episodes, the stories, Kirk, Spock and McCoy et. all were so because we wanted to live in that world. (In a sense). After watching an episode it was easy to say “Damn, that was great!”

Of course, you wouldn’t say ‘damn’ because this was 1968 and you were only 12, so it was sure easy to accept that universe. But when you grew up you found it was good as an adult because you found so many things to know and enjoy about the show.

And now because you’re no longer a kid, you see the show as one more thing: nostalgic. Something you didn’t have as a younger man. Simply because you weren’t that old yet. ;) Can’t have nostalgia when you’re 20.

It’s just one more thing I like about Star Trek.

67. neal - January 19, 2007

Hmm, someone here thinks Lost in Space was ok in first season. I watched every ep of that show in reruns in the 70s. Not once have I felt an urge to see even one minute of that show again!

(I think I have seen Doomsday Machine about 7000 times…)

The art of the apostrophe is slowly dying. At one time I took photos of all the storefront signs in Chicago that screwed it up. (Imagine a hot dog stand: “Bill’s Franks” or “Bills Frank’s”??)

68. THEETrekMaster - January 19, 2007

#67 The mark of an excellent series is that years later you can still enjoy it and it still seems fresh. The original Star Trek is like that.

69. Adam Cohen - January 19, 2007

#67 Thomas Jensen

Great post! I’m 29, so I caught the show in the early ’80s (during the post-Star Wars era) but even then Star Trek was a special show. With each movie that came out, there was this excitement and buzz that you don’t get around movies nowadays. Sure, movies do great business, but the idea that every three years or so Star Trek would warp back into our lives was really awesome.

Looking back, I do have a lot of nostalgia for the show- coming home after school and watching it on WPIX in NY, for buying and reading the novels at a steady clip (those Star Trek books helped get me into reading at a young age!), to going to the local comic book shop and oggling the Enterprise model the store had on display, etc. You can never truly be young again like that, where excitement is free-flowing and carefree. I am extremely thankful that I had Star Trek in my childhood to bring that out in me. Sure, I had other interests as well, but Star Trek got me to the core. Great memories.

Cheers everybody!

70. Thomas Jensen - January 19, 2007

#70 Adam, That’s very interesting. Another generation of original series fans. See CBS? There is an expansive demographic for Star Trek (TM).

Fans who were kids during the original times and those who were kids in the 70 & 80s enjoy the show. And there can be more….

The original show sparked this loyality.

And when I refer to Star Trek, I refer always to the original. Because there is only one original.

And it goes on.

71. Adam Cohen - January 20, 2007

#71

Funny story: My girlfriend babysits for these two girls, ages around 9-12– about a year ago, the 12 year-old had her dad’s newly purchased TOS DVD box sets out every time my girlfriend was at their house. A 12 year-old girl in this “Justin Timberlake” universe who digs Star Trek! She went through all three seasons and became a huge fan. That shows a lot re: TOS’ persisting appeal. We older folks are not blinded by nostalgia- the show is actually very good! I would love to see a whole new generation discover TOS. Hopefully this new movie will set that trend in motion.

72. SPOCKBOY - January 20, 2007

These are kind of interesting..

73. brady - January 20, 2007

#68….give the 1st 5 or so eps of 1st season lost in space a lil relook. the black and white reminisent of a classic forbidden planet…before they were interacting with carrot people…the tryin to survive …the evil killer dr smith not the idiot smith..evn the effects for the time. Those are my fav lost episodes. and while im at it give enterprise a lil slack,if they had made it a sydicated show not a ratings kinda show it woulda went 7 yrs also and the 4th was by far the best even though they knew it was the last yr….thats what u call personal pride,they could have went out with a wimper but instead they said lets make this yr the best. the 4th year they decieded to fill in as many gaps in canon as they could and did an excellent job from katras to mirror to ufp and has become my 2nd fav series next to tos of course.

74. Thomas Jensen - January 20, 2007

#72 That’s a great story, Adam. It’s true, the stories are timeless and kids enjoy them. One thing about the show is it has a ‘nobility’ in it’s presentation of people that is sometimes lacking in today’s drama. It can be shown to kids without having to worry about the content they are seeing.

It works on many levels. Hopefully, as you say, the people creating the new movie will see the value in the many attributes of the series.

75. Picardsucks - January 20, 2007

I love the savage curtain Spock wrestling Gengis Khan, Kirk dropkicking Kahless. Sweet!!! The anti- Errand of Mercy. All bow before Savage Curtain. I also love Plato’s Stepchildren, it features one of the show’s most strongly portrayed allegories, that of psedo intellectual elitism run amok. Whether it be super right wing conservatives or in this case east coasty intellectual snobs, this episode nailed it perfectly. Watch it again and pay attention, we are Alexander. First Interracial Kiss too boot. I also loved turnabout Intruder. It’s fun. Shatnerisms on steroids here. Scotty “we”ll have to take over the ship” – I always loved the way he said that. And I agree that Alternative factor may be the worst episode of all time.

76. Admiraldeem - January 20, 2007

Glad you liked Plato’s Stepchildren. My uncle was Liam Sullivan who played Parmen. And he was a WEST coast intellectual snob raised in central Illinois. He did not even come by it honestly!

He had nothing but nice things to say about the cast and he thought Uhura was “a charming Nigress.” Wait–that was Abe Lincoln who said that!

77. THEETrekMaster - January 20, 2007

Your Uncle was Liam Sullivan???

VERY COOL! He was the best thing about the episode…

I like when he said “Do not take that TONE with mee!” LOL!!!
I’ve always wanted to say that and then make someone slap themselves silly afterward like that.

Still…not one of Trek’s best efforts, PS.

TTM

78. diabolik - January 20, 2007

As much as I loathed “Plateo’s Stepchidren,” I still mist up when they take Loveless…. uh, Alexander with them at the end. And I love the kiss between Uhura and Kirk, too… but it would have been a lot better had it not been forced.

79. brady - January 21, 2007

#71 and #72 great story and great finds on YouTube :)

I agree The Alternative Factor is a mess and probably the worst of the series. Although And The Children Shall Lead & The Way to Eden are hard to ignore.

I still think this looks like pre-vis CG stuff. Too bad.

“Spock’s Brain” wasn’t that terrible. Gorgeous dominant women, “the givers of pain and delight: a curious mixture”, what’s not to like?
