TOS-R Preview , trackback
CBS have provided a couple of higher res images from Amok Time Remastered
it is noteworthy that CBS are (for the first time) replacing live action shots with CGI shots. CBS do point out that the walk to the arena and the arena establishing shot do not have any dialog.
CBS’s bit of ‘retro continuity’ takes inspiration from the TAS episode "Yesteryear" as well as the film Star Trek III: The Search For Spock.
From the CBS Press Release:
The digitally-remastered "Amok Time" features two new visual effects matte paintings. Each shows Spock’s homeworld of Vulcan with greater scope and grandeur than was possible when the episode was first produced in 1967. These paintings depict a forbidding desertscape of spectacular beauty, capturing the ancient mysticism of Spock’s Vulcan ancestors. Sharp-eyed fans might glimpse the desert city of Shi’Khar in the background of one of the paintings. Shi’Khar, where Spock grew up, was first seen in the 1973 animated Star Trek episode, "Yesteryear." These new shots were produced at CBS Digital, and were painted by matte artist Max Gabl under the direction of visual effects supervisor Niel Wray.
