Brilliant colours, don’t you think?

2. Josh T. (The flaming tits of the one true Ubershatner) Kirk Esquire' - March 11, 2007

This episode is whimsical, I likey.

It’s a good filler material episode, whilst simultaneously being endearing and charming in it’s own right.

There needs to be a top 10 list of the most non-threatening villians in screen-history.

Hengist should at least be in the top 5, the guy that provides the voice of piglet is about as frightening as a Nascar fan chewing..Oops!

3. Josh T. (The flaming tits of the one true Ubershatner) Kirk Esquire' - March 11, 2007

Is it me, or is that city lights viewed from orbit on the surface of Argelius II?

If so, that’s a awesome first.

4. Chris - March 11, 2007

The deflector dish has more color to it now.

Yup, I thought they were city lights (or something awfully bright!). :-)

6. Al - March 11, 2007

Can someone explain the voice of piglet references?

7. DEMODE - March 11, 2007

Those are city lights. Looks great, and adds so much to that scene.

Was there nothing done to fix any of the Redjack scenes?? I thought they would have spruced up some of those effects.

8. Siskel's Dead Thumb - March 11, 2007

6:
Al, the actor who played Redjak (John Fiedler) in this episode also provided the voice for “Piglet” in the “Winnie-the-Pooh” cartoons for Disney from the late Sixties until his death in 2005.

9. SPOCKBOY - March 11, 2007

4. Chris – March 11, 2007

The deflector dish has more color to it now.

Actually I don’t think the DISH has more color, but the bit behind the dish is DEFINITELY more copper.

I don’t get it?

10. Josh T. (The flaming tits of the one true Ubershatner) Kirk Esquire' - March 11, 2007

Wasn’t John Fielder also in Charlottes Web?

The area behind the navigational deflector dish is a 50/50 mix of copper and black.

That’s just awesome how the cities are illuminated from orbit.

A completely unexpected enhancement, I tell you, this is such a treat what CBS is doing, it really does bring Trek into the 21st century and makes these jewels alive again even after so many years and repeat viewings.

We all owe CBS a collective thank you.

11. Duane Boda - March 11, 2007

In the last photo – Hengist should have his hands about 6 – 7 inches lower!
Oh yeah….sure how totally juvenile one might say but who can argue with warm hands and a smiling heart? Not me!

12. paul austin - March 11, 2007

i know its a silly thing, and innaccurate, but part of me will miss the brightly colored planets

13. THEETrekMaster - March 11, 2007

Love the city lights!!!! Great work…and great attention to detail, CBS-D!!! But, I think you also did this with Vulcan in Amok Time.

TTM

14. Kyle Nin - March 11, 2007

#13:

Yeah, they did do it in “Amok Time”. (But for some reason, TrekMovie.com doesn’t have a screenshot of it.)

15. Granger - March 11, 2007

The paucity of remastered effects in this episode leads me to ask a minor question – forgive me if it has been asked before:

The closing credits included an old Enterprise orbital shot over a cloudless Earth globe – presumably a shot from the original Miri. Will the final remastering leave such old effects still shots in the end credits untouched? If so, that might be the only trace of the old models, etc. left in the remastered series.

16. FlyingTigress - March 11, 2007

#12

(smile) …But the matte lines around the Enterprise won’t be missed.

Well… maybe a little…

17. ety3 - March 11, 2007

I believe CBS-D may have added the Redjac cloud effect to the triangular viewer on the conference room table after it first appeared on the larger viewer.

I don’t recall that little tidbit, and the gallery at TrekCore is down at the moment, so I can’t check.

Does anyone else recall?

18. FlyingTigress - March 11, 2007

#17

In the DVD from the non-(R) ep. it shows up on the triangular viewer for about 10 seconds beginning at 40:26 into the episode. But, at time 41:00, still in the briefing room, when the scene cuts back to a wider field of view — after the dialogue about the sedative — the viewer is shown blank.

19. FlyingTigress - March 11, 2007

I didn’t watch the (R) ep last night. There are a couple of tightly-framed close-ups on, what appears to be, the briefing room triangular viewscreen image with Redjac (recalling something from J. Blish’s written adaptations – “and of its home”). Are those what you might be referring to, or something else?

20. steve623 - March 11, 2007

John Fiedler also had a recurring role as morgue attendant Gordy “The Ghoul” Spangler on “Kolchak the Night Stalker”, which also had an episode about an immortal Jack the Ripper.

21. yo - March 11, 2007

^^^
> “John Fiedler also had a recurring role … on ‘Kolchak the Night Stalker’,
> which also had an episode about an immortal Jack the Ripper.”

and btw, Kolchak fans may recall a couple other connections between
that series and Star Trek. Probably most well-known is that the
final episode “The Sentry” had obvious parallels to “Devil in the Dark”.

One Kolchak fan site alleges that “Cy Chermak said in the late 70′s that
‘if the show had gone on for another season, it would have been bigger
than Star Trek.’” :-)

FYI, all 20 Kolchak eps can be purchased on itunes.

(Note to Kolchak newbies: don’t confuse it with the arguably inferior
2005 “Night Stalker” series.)

22. T Negative - March 11, 2007

Even though we only get to see the E for a few seconds it continues to look better and better with each outing. The detail on the hull and reflections off of it are really starting to look good.

23. T Negative - March 11, 2007

I might add the E has looked great now for several weeks but they seem to find ways to continue to slightly improve the digital model with every new episode.

Now we have two weeks off until the “Tholian Web”. Damn!!

24. steve623 - March 11, 2007

>Probably most well-known is that the
>final episode “The Sentry” had obvious parallels to “Devil in the Dark”.

Darren McGavin’s beautiful wife, Kathy Brown, who played the police detective in that episode, also turned heads here a few weeks back as Queen Deela in “Wink of an Eye”.

25. dil - March 11, 2007

Even though minimal CG, it really looks cleaner than original. Skin tones especially.

26. FlyingTigress - March 11, 2007

#23

Now, one question will be “How much will the (R) Tholian cruisers look like the more recent versions in the episodic Trek ‘that (to borrow a description) does not dare speak its name’?”

Or, are they — like the differences between the “Mirror Universe” Enterprise from Mirror, Mirror (R) and the latest CGI renderings — going to bear some marked differences — and look more like the TOS-era Tholian vessels?

(And, here’s to a Cruiser Aurora that isn’t an obvious re-use!)

27. diabolik - March 11, 2007

I love the way that Kara is vogueing in the opening shot years before vogueing was in vogue.

28. Larry Nemecek - March 11, 2007

#8, 10, 20–

PLEASE don’t forget John Fiedler’s other big recurring live role–as “Mr. Peterson,” the hapless little-guy dominated by his never-seen wife Doris, a therapy patient to Dr. Hartley on The Bob Newhart Show.

Next to “Hi, Bob” as a drinking-game line from that show (I believe the prototype TV show for that!), the next one would be: “Y-you want to go with that, Mr. Peterson?”

29. steve623 - March 11, 2007

I believe John Fiedler was also Dabney Coleman’s doormat for a season of “Buffalo Bill” in the mid-80s.

30. Michael Appleton - March 11, 2007

Boy, this Fiedler guy really got around, didn’t he? I, of course, remember him from The Odd Couple film.

31. Dave Mack - March 11, 2007

The E looked amazing.
Now PLEASE go back and re-insert this model into the first eps before you dump them all on DVD and HD, CBS-d…!!!

32. Dave Mack - March 11, 2007

jarris=landru

33. starfall42 - March 11, 2007

I’m surprised someone hasn’t put a “Wolf in the Hundred Acres Wood” mash-up on YouTube, ie, “Die, die, everybody die” dubbed over Piglet.

34. calvination - March 12, 2007

Interested to know why they didn’t redo the ‘blade exhibit’ inset on the view screen… Those pale white hands that rotated the blade, and those black stocking-like sleeves that covered the arms, look very outdated. Couldn’t a digital effect that showed all sides of the blade been used here?

35. Scarpad - March 12, 2007

I think he was in the TV version of the Odd Couple as well was’nt he?

36. Ethan Shuster - March 12, 2007

There’s something I always liked about that image of Scotty standing there with the blade in his hand. That strange awkward way he’s standing there was very creepy. And as far as TV shows go when the fate of the major character is obvious, it still starts off as a good mystery. I mean, it sure looks like there’s no way he’s innocent.

37. Chris Pike - March 12, 2007

As said, the CGI E is getting better, lifting the specularity adds much more texture realism and stops the look of “concrete”, and that deflector area has a definate improvement. Just lift the levels of the ship’s internal lighting/portholes/nav lights a bit maybe..? City lights are a nice touch too.

38. Jim J - March 12, 2007

Finally got to see it late last night on the Sioux City affiliate (no thanks to KXVO in Omaha). Yeah, not much at all to do with this one, but man, the big E looks so great!!!! Looking forward to “Tholian” after the two week break. I just wish they’d go back and insert this “E” into the opening credits. Glorious nacelles and all!!!!

39. Scott - March 12, 2007

Fiedler also was in the mid-70s comedy “Harper Valley PTA,” and becomes one of Barbara Eden’s victims. I can still recall seeing him wrapped in a fire hose in the TV ads for that cinematic masterpiece.

But he’ll always be Redjac to me….

Scott out.

40. Nelson - March 12, 2007

re: #37-

Yes, they’ve added more specularity when rendering the Enterprise, and I definitley noticed it this week. But I thought it was on the edge of overdoing it now! It almost looked like bare metal.

I liked the city lights seen from orbit, very nice touches.

Additionally, in Paradise Syndrone, I was watching my recording of the scene when the Enterprise fires the deflector at the asteroid, did anyone ever notice you can see inside the ship through the windows? Looked great!

Don’t forget John Fiedler was also on The Odd Couple IIRC before The Bob Newhart Show. Great actor!

41. Chris Pike - March 12, 2007

40:
Yes, noticed that with the ship interiors – that’s one thing that’s vastly easier to do on a cg model than a physical miniature, nice touch that adds great scale – maybe they might go as far as a low poly redshirt crewmember walking past a porthole sometime!

42. Nelson - March 12, 2007

Or maybe they’ll film some of the CBS-D people and place them walking past a window!

43. Chris Pike - March 12, 2007

Nelson – Well yes, but then it’s a flat 2d plate, which doesn’t look natural when viewed on/off angle. A similar technique was used with the filming miniature of the pod used to transport Kirk and Scott to drydock in TMP – you can see it as it moves past camera and the figures are in fact 2d (it was projected footage of the actors on to a miniature interior rear projection screen synced frame by frame with moco as a separate double exposure pass), cheers.

44. New Horizon - March 12, 2007

The deflector dish FINALLY has some color…and it looks GREAT!!! :)

Nice work CBS-D

45. Nelson - March 12, 2007

Chris- I’ve seen the set-up for the travelpod on TMP. I agree, for most part it worked on that section of the movie, but it can look flat. But people were inserted in the observation areas of the shuttlecraft launchbay for Journey to Babel. Wouldn’t that same technique work for portholes?

46. Chris Pike - March 12, 2007

maybe…just depends on relative camera angle and distance etc….but it sure would be “fascinating” to see!

47. ZtoA - March 12, 2007

I remember turning the TV on… I remember seeing the opening sequence… then

I don’ rrrrrememberrrr a thing!

Hey… whose knife??

Redrom-redrom-redroom… oops… wrong show…

I still laugh out loud at the scene when they carry Hengist (a.k.a. AtoZ a.k.a. Piglet a.k.a. Lawyer J. Noble Daggett) to the transporter as he tells everyone they’re gonna die. I bet they had to do that a hundred times before they made it ten steps without laughing.

48. Matt Wright - March 12, 2007

He wasn’t Mr. Atoz ;) That was Ian Wolfe, who also played Septimus in Bread and Circuses.

49. OM - March 12, 2007

…And for those that don’t know, Pilar Seurat, the actress who played Sybo, is Dean Devlin’s mom.

50. Jim J - March 13, 2007

I know there won’t be much to it, but where’s our beloved sfx video? I wanna see the BIG E in all her glory.

51. Doug - March 13, 2007

Wow, I didn’t see this weeks, but the from the sound of it, and the two pics above, CBS-D has really been taking many of the comments here to heart regarding the lighting, nacelle caps, deflector dish etc.

I can’t wait to see what’s coming next. I was one of the few who wasn’t too thrilled with the Doomsday Machine’s overall effects (except the constitution which looked very cool), but I do think they continue to improve, esp on the effects light episodes which allow them more time.

CBS-D, you’re going in the right direction. I’ll reiterate here, as others have, to Paramount and CBS-D…..

Please rework the effects on the earlier episodes before releasing these to DVD. Much work is needed, and I believe wholeheartedly the repsonse in purchasing these discs will reflect the effort.

Doug

52. Holo J - March 13, 2007

^ 50 Jim J

lol, yeah I’d like to see it too… or Is it the video is so short that it isn’t worth it?

Also I thought CBS digital might have replaced the bit on this episode where Spock and Kirk are looking at the Enterprise Circuits… I thought there was a good opportunity to remaster the Circuit boards to something a bit more believable a bit like in “I Mudd” when we saw the remastered workings of Norman inners. I don’t get to see these Remastered episodes so maybe that bit was cut in syndication? maybe they have changed it?

53. Stanky McFibberich - March 13, 2007

re: 49 OM

Dean Devlin? Who?

I only know Dean Wormer. :)

54. diabolik - March 13, 2007

The ship still has dark balls, though. They are a lot lighter, or brighter, on the original in the comparison shot where you can see them on the back.

It’s time for CBS Digital to plug up the wires to the lights back there.

55. Matt Wright - March 13, 2007

#52 no the circuitry wasn’t changed, I think that would have been quite hard to do given the nature of those shots.

FX Video should be up shortly… all 40 seconds of it, lol.

56. Anthony Pascale - March 13, 2007

hey matt, great work…funny how people are clamoring for the worlds shortest fx vid!

you know…even though it is brief…I think the E has never looked better,

57. Matt Wright - March 13, 2007

I agree, the CBS-D crew really seems to have the Big E looking good these days.

58. Jim J - March 13, 2007

Now that is one awesome looking ship!!!!! Thanks for the video, short but oh so sweet!

59. Holo J - March 13, 2007

Thanks for putting up the video Matt. It may only be 40 seconds long but it’s all we’ve got for the next 2 weeks so I’ll lap it up. I have to say the quality of the WMV file is really good and certainly gives me a good idea it will be like when viewed at high quality. It’s a shame they didn’t change the circuitry. I know it might have been hard for the bottom bit that Spock is doing something to I just thought they could have done something with the top and sides of that shot as its really just a border for that shot of Kirk and Spock peering through at the circuits really. The wires at the bottom could have been left alone.

56 Anthony

I have to agree with you the Enterprise is looking great. I am already looking forward to seeing what they are going to do next for ” The Tholian Web” and “The Immunity Syndrome”. I am sure you will have a few more people asking for those video’s :O)

60. ZtoA - March 13, 2007

I can’t believe I missed the actor who played AtoZ in this dimension. Sure enough, I looked it up and ZtoA swung and missed.

Thanks to Matt Wright (48) for pointing out my bonehead error… or maybe it was the ale that made me do it…or maybe it was Rejack.

The E looks great in this episode. I think CBS-D has finished their punch list and like everyone else here I hope Paramount retrofits this much improved E back into the episodes they aired in the opening weeks.

Tholian and Immunity should look bangin… I wonder if they’ll adopt the tholian ship design from Enterprise.

61. MichaelJohn - March 13, 2007

I’m travelling cross country in my motorhome and as usual, I couldn’t find a local channel that carried these remastered episodes. Bummer! But luckily I still got my weekly “fix” of TOS watching an original episode on the TV Land channel.

That was a pretty short FX video this week… was that all that changed in this episode?

Mike :o

62. Sean4000 - March 13, 2007

I never thought I would say this but the CBS-D’s Enterprise 1701 is looking better than Eden FX’s model for “In a Mirror.”

63. Solve for X - March 22, 2007

Oh, come on! As funny as this episode is, I think this is one of the lamest of the original Trek, but they could have still made it worthwhile and done a bit more with this episode’s re-mastering.

All we get is a planet face lift. Lame!

I was hoping maybe at least a panorama establishing shot of the foggy city streets they were in, or maybe some additional scenery placed outside the windows of the house so it didn’t look so confined. There is a lot they could have done, but no – they cheesed out to save a buck.

They better make Tholian Web a masterpiece!

64. neo - March 25, 2007

i never want to see tat orbit shot again. there is no excuse for reusing the same shots a thousand times.

65. Eyedunno - June 6, 2008

Neat ep. Robert Bloch was my favorite author for a year or two in high school, and he sure likes these serial murder stories (_Psycho_, _The Scarf_, _American Gothic_, “Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper”). I don’t really go for the supernatural stuff, but, well, that is Bloch’s idea of Jack the Ripper.

66. Cheeba - November 24, 2009

PIGLET’S EVIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL XD
