“Let That Be Your Last Battlefield” Remastered Screenshots [+ VIDEO] January 22, 2008

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: TOS-R Screenshots/Video , trackback

Let this be your last episode, Gene (Coon)
Last weekends digitally remastered episode was the Civil Rights era allegory "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield." Although allegory may not be the right word, perhaps ‘sledgehammer’ is more apt for this not in the least bit subtle tale of race relations in the 23rd century. Although a bit over the top, especially thirty nine years later, this last episode written by Gene Coon (he gets a story credit under his pseudonym Lee Cronin) is one of the standouts for the third season…replete with great Kirkisms (” Listen to me — you both must end up dead if you don’t stop hating!”) and Spockisms (“to expect sense from two mentalities of such extreme viewpoints is not logical”) throughout. This episode also features the famed “zero, zero, zero, destruct, zero” self destruction scene (which was recreated in Star Trek III). In the “Last Battlefield” version of the scene (as well as other scenes), director Jud Taylor seems to be borrowing heavily from the 60s era Batman complete with extreme close-ups, odd angles and copious zooms — all that was missing were the ‘POWs’ and ‘BAMs’ during the fight scenes beteen Lokai and Bele.

For CBS-D there was a surprising amount off effects for them to do. Throughout the episode they took the opportunity to replace stock and re-used shots with new digital ones. This was most notable in the sequence capturing the stolen shuttle and when the Enterprise orbits and decontaminates Ariannus. Also Planet Charon gets redone with scorch marks that better fit with the story. Throughout the Enterprise herself looks good and she gets some nice flybys and distance shots to mix it up a bit. All in all one of the better efforts from CBS-D.

Star Trek vs. Batman
As mentioned above this episode (which featured Batman’s Frank Gorshin) came close to parody. However there is an award-winning indie film that went all the way called “Star Trek v. Batman” (below). For more goto www.rocsofilms.com

1. Enterprisingguy - January 22, 2008

I liked the original planets better!

2. sloan47 - January 22, 2008

Great job as usual!!

3. Xindi1985 - January 22, 2008

THAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANK YOU FOR POSTING!!!! PLEASE POST THE FX-REEL (Video!) THANKS!!!

4. What is it with you? - January 22, 2008

Very good-the-bad-and-the-ugly.

Kirk at his best.

5. Moonscore - January 22, 2008

Speaking of the Joker, RIP Heath Ledger.

6. TrekMadeMeWonder - January 22, 2008

Indeed.
Rest in peace, Heath.

7. RedStatesRule - January 22, 2008

So when is the last time the FX team gave us one of those extra additions, looks to me that for about the last elevnty twelve episodes it’s all been ship-shots and planet exteriors.

Does anyone know when we last saw something else and what that was?

8. ensign ricky - January 22, 2008

Frank Gorshen was THE RIDDLER!!

(not the Joker who was played by Ceaser Romero)

aw crap!

9. sean - January 22, 2008

The new planets are a vast improvement, especially Charon – at least it stays consistent this time!

10. Anthony Pascale - January 22, 2008

ooops

11. RedStatesRule - January 22, 2008

Oh yeah … and wasn’t HE the Riddler?

12. Gerry Alanguilan - January 22, 2008

Frank Gorshin was actually the Riddler. Yeah, condolences to Heath Ledger’s loved ones. That one’s truly a shock.

13. Anthony Pascale - January 22, 2008

i fixed it just reload the page….jeez

14. CmdrR - January 22, 2008

Do you mean Joker, as in the harlequin in a deck of Bicycle cards, or did you mean The Riddler? And didn’t Dave Madden play Reuben Kincaid? Rather than Lou Antonio, who played Loki.

I dunno. My brain is mush. Somebody called out my destruct code, and my head exploded.

Wasn’t Heath Ledger on a lot of fan lists for Kirk?

15. SPB - January 22, 2008

I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU…

…but I’m in a total funk over this Heath Ledger thing. Just too sad. I feel awful for his daughter and family.

16. ensign ricky - January 22, 2008

anyone catch the name on that Starbase 4 shuttlecraft?

aw crap!

17. Karlore - January 22, 2008

They should, like, make the enterprise on the new remastereds look exactly like the enterprise in the new movie. That would be cool.

Also, Batman is teh freakin awesomeness squared. They should have a Batman/Star Trek crossover.

18. Sebastian - January 22, 2008

I’ve liked most of the refurbishments done to the Trek remastered episodes, but the shuttlecraft and hangar bay in the new shots look really cartoon-ish. But, hey at least the fixed the shuttle’s registry; it WAS kinda strange having an Enterprise shuttle come from a Star base! Otherwise, I liked this episode. Yes, it plays over the top today, but many shows in those days were not touching race relations with a 10 ft pole and a pair of rubber gloves. Have to admire what it said at that time. Heavy-handed, maybe; but it had a point to make.

19. CmdrR - January 22, 2008

Karlore — you got your wish

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=batman+star+trek&search=Search

it’s in several parts

20. ZtoA - January 22, 2008

I always found it strange that they referred to the location of Planet Charon as being in the “southern-most” part of the galaxy. 2D compass points have little-to-no meaning in intersteller navigation… yet another example of over-kill on the racial overtones on the part of the writers.

21. I AM THX-1138 - January 22, 2008

#17-”They should have a Batman/Star Trek crossover.”

No. And no. Seriously, no.

This episode never did anything for me as a kid. Now that I’m older, I get the themes of racial unrest and acceptance that it tried to portray with a sledge-hammer, but it still doesn’t excite me. Maybe it’s the ridiculous half stark white and black faces that were supposed to pass for “alieny” but I still just watch this one for the FX.

Next.

22. Karlore - January 22, 2008

Cool Beans! That video is awesomeness CUBED!

23. Magic_Al - January 22, 2008

Clever scheduling this for the weekend of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

24. ensign ricky - January 22, 2008

Good call ZtoA, Bele and Lokai should have been from the planet “Amabala” deep inside the Ozark Nebula.

25. Karlore - January 22, 2008

I take #22 back. It had potential, but they messed it up pretty bad in part 2. Gave me an idea of something to do this weekend though.

26. DJT - January 22, 2008

I think it might be sad, if after STXI comes out, we all find the TOSR version of the E the more likable one.

Ironic.

27. CmdrR - January 22, 2008

Dave Madden.

Lou Antonio was in Cool Hand Luke (Koko) as was Morgan Woodward (Capt. Tracey & Dr. Simon Van Gelder)

28. Russ - January 22, 2008

Heh, WBNX, that’s my local affiliate.

And yes, that enormous logo is incredibly annoying.

29. Dennis Bailey - January 22, 2008

They have made an obvious adjustment to the scale of the shuttlecraft in this episode – it’s *huge* inside that hangar deck – and that looks awful.

30. T Negative - January 22, 2008

I enjoyed this one. There were a lot more VFX shots than I remembered.

Usually they are always at the beginning and end of each show but this one had them throughout. Good effort by CBS-D this week.

31. Andy Patterson - January 22, 2008

Addressing several people on the issue….it’s Frank Gorshin and he was the Riddler. In my opinion, the best villain of the series. Insane, manic energy. Saw him three times on Broadway in “Say Goodnight Gracie” – a one man show on the life of George Burns. Spoke to him after every performance. Super cool guy. Great talent. He’s gone now

and to 27
Morgan Woodward was Captain Ronald Tracy in the “Omega Glory” episode. Also in my opinion, the best villain TOS ever had.

32. Stanky McFibberich - January 22, 2008

Nice Catwoman. Nice.

33. British Naval Dude - January 22, 2008

Arrr yessss… The Riddler… explains why CBS put all those digital question marks on him…

At least thye were not re-done to be grey… woulda made whole episode confusing…

I appreciated this episode now much better than I did when I saw I was young- it always popped up in the spartan times ST was in syndication for me in the past twenty or so years…

What if CBS re-did it so one was a dog person and one be a cat person?…

Arrrr… timed good just for Dr. King Day for ye Yanks…

34. Captain Robert April - January 22, 2008

BTW, Frank Gorshin was nominated for an Emmy for this episode.

And, my, doesn’t the Enterprise look great? :D

35. Robert Bernardo - January 22, 2008

Yeah, the proportions of the entering shuttlecraft compared to the interior of the shuttlebay make the shuttlecraft look gigantic. After studying the shot, I suppose it could be that the virtual camera is nearer to the shuttle, and the virtual lens is wider, but it takes getting used to that perspective.

Also I disagree with the Remastered scenes of the decontamination of the planet. The Enterprise is sailing over the planet with its “bomb-bay” doors open; yet, nothing visible comes out of the doors. Also there is still the music cue of the original in which the planet changes color as it is being decontaminated. In the Remastered version the music cue is wasted, because the Remastered planet does *not* change color during the decontamination.

The rest of the Remastered fx scenes are welcome.

36. Gene L. Coon (was the Better Gene because he) was a U. S. Marine - January 22, 2008

As the unofficial Commanding Officer of the Gene Coon Battalion, I give you this tidbit from Wikipedia:

“There is some evidence that this script evolved from Gene Coon’s unfilmed first season script A Portrait in Black and White. That particular script also dealt with racial issues, and would have featured Uhura and McCoy trapped on a planet where white people were slaves and black people were the masters. According to David Gerrold, Herbert F. Solow, and the recollections of Gene Coon’s widow, Jackie Coon-Fernandez, the Trek production staff worked and reworked the script for nearly three years before it reached its final form.”

I thought, perhaps Coon’s original script was too uncomfortably close to a Planet of the Apes scenario, but POTA wasn’t released until 8 Feb 1968. (Hey! 40th anniversary in a few weeks! Have to rent it!). Anyway, I am content that Gene didn’t get the screenplay credit. It is about as subtle as a hand grenade in a barrel of oatmeal.

37. Lord Garth, Formerly of Izar - January 22, 2008

Other than the ginormous shuttle Denny B pointed out I think they really rebounded from last week’s aweful outing. We got some pretty terrific shots and angles of the E and the print was crisp and beautiful. I always liked this episode and while lacking any subtlety with regards to the whole race relations angle I think it plays especially well as an Israli – Palistinian angle for todays times.

38. Flying Tigress - January 22, 2008

Nice ep. Great subject. Good guest star. But I really disliked two things..

1) Those close-ups of the actors

2) The fast zoom-in, zoom-out, zoom-in, zoom-out on the alert lights.

39. Gene L. Coon (was the Better Gene because he) was a U. S. Marine - January 22, 2008

Another thought. Coon’s military influenceis evident here in the touches of command authority exhibited by Kirk. I know there are some posters here that are loathe to admit it, but Kirk, as developed and influenced by Coon, is one of the great military leaders of fiction.

When Bele shows up on the Enterprise, and starts demanding action from Kirk, Kirk explains that the Enterprise’s mission is his top priority, and tells Bele to be patient. When Lokai appears and tells Kirk to kill Bele, Kirk has them both thrown in the brig! When Bele takes over the Enterprise, Kirk would rather blow up his ship than have his command undermined, or compromise with Bele. Some real moments of no-nonsense leadership. Oo rah!

40. T Negative - January 22, 2008

Now that CBS-Digital has a vast “library” of shots, I hope we can start to see some more stuff done like cleaning up phaser effects, continuity issues or other touches where the Enterprise is not involved. Maybe planets sets can be tweaked to show clouds or something, or how about a CG Melkot for Spectre of the Gun??

Come on CBS do more!!!

41. T Negative - January 22, 2008

One more thing.

Now that they sold over 100,000 units of season one you would think that they could do more for us fans who forked over the dinero.

42. Anthony Pascale - January 22, 2008

I have added the video…it may take an hour or so to process so if it doesn’t work come back and try again later.

43. CmdrR - January 22, 2008

Tigress — I always thought this was someone’s answer to Hawaii 5-O’s whip pans.

Loved Gorshen in everything (catch him aping his role in 12 Monkeys.)

The main criticism that sticks with this ep is that there’s no humor. MAN, could we have used a giggle anywhere in here. Racism, bad. Got it.

Anyway — thanks for another fx reel, Anthony. Sorry I’m so p^&*y tonight.

44. Anthony Pascale - January 22, 2008

patience is a virtue people. Matt had tech problems and I have been busy…but we have never missed a TOSR and we never will.

45. Ali - January 22, 2008

Shatner pronounces sabotage (as sabot-ahge) really oddly at about 2:45

46. Ethan Shuster - January 22, 2008

Heavy handed, sort of. What makes it great is Kirk and Spock’s reaction to the “he’s black on the right side!” They don’t react with a speech or start yelling. They simply glance at each other like, “This guy’s crazy.” The correct reaction for a group who don’t even understand the idea of skin color racism. And it works for more than just racism. Hatred of an enemy without reason, and the pointlessness of war. I never minded the obviousness of it.

47. SteveinSF - January 22, 2008

#38–That is so funny, I always hated those close ups ( man Scotty’s teeth-euuuwwww) and that stupid red alert close ups…just what was that all about? Ahhm the third season….so much to gripe about.

Love the briefing room door ( or was it a lounge?) closed about 3/4 of the way while Loki was giving his freedom speech–and Spock ease dropping. Too funny.

I didn’t see a change in the planet after the Enterprise crop dusted. Was it there in HD or did they actually miss that detail when the music cued the planet’s change.

Gorshen was great–always a little crazy!

48. SteveinSF - January 22, 2008

I just saw the change in the planet on Anthony’s video–still doesn’t really match the music cue.

So here’s a question..what exactly are those lights under the view screen that travel left to right–or rather, what is their purpose?It seemed they moved faster when in warp ( Corbomite Maneuver ), then randomly with different sound effects, , then slowly left to right with a slower sound effect too. Is there something about that in any of the Trek manuals?
I always love the sound effect as well as other TOS sound effects and couldn’t stand the washed out bland sound effects of TNG and later.

Back remastered stuff, the TOS shot of big E approaching the first planet is still far better than the CGI shots. Justs looks more “realistic” –not cartoon-ish.

49. sharon fisher - January 22, 2008

Kinkaid, I believe it was spelled.

There’s a number of Star Trek/Batman crossovers — Frank Gorshin, Lee Merriwether…

I remember hearing about that Coon script but not that they’d kept working on the idea.

Incidentally, am I nuts? I thought I remembered them running around the ship envisioning burning cities, and I didn’t see any burning cities.

50. Sean4000 - January 22, 2008

Bleh….., bring on “The Ultimate Computer!”

At least they’re getting more bold with the star field shots. That’s about all lately.

51. Noleuser - January 22, 2008

I was just looking at Startrek.com, it is so pathetic it has no link or anything to the movie site.

The people at CBS are idiots, they should have never fired those workers. They know nothing about a good business model.

Suck it Les Moonves!

52. Stanky McFibberich - January 22, 2008

Maybe I missed something, but are you implying that Dave Madden played Lokai in this episode….or that Lou Antonio played Reuben Kincaid on The Partridge Family? Or that Shirley Jones played Bones?

Oh, I see somebody already pointed that out.

53. Magic_Al - January 22, 2008

^48. I think the lights under the viewscreen are supposed to represent a sensor sweep, at least when they move left to right. Different speeds were probably because they sped up the film to make the stars move faster and the lights went along with it. The random flashing was probably early in the series before they got the more complex wiring worked out for the left-to-right pattern. Beyond that would probably be over-analyzing.

54. Jabob Slatter - January 22, 2008

I like the effects but the episode itself is a hard one to watch. I think it’s really quite stupid. Even for its time. It’s a pretty hamfisted way of presenting the whole race issue.

As for those of you who have problems with the effects – isn’t it their intention to make the effects a little more primitive looking so as not to contrast greatly with the live action? Maybe I’m wrong, but I think I read that somewhere.

Personally, I’d have liked for them to spruce things up even more. The shuttle bay scene DOES look cartoony, as opposed to the original, which just looked like a toy. I don’t know. Either way, I like the new effects.

And yes, it is very tragic about Heath Ledger. He did some dang fine work.

55. Jabob Slatter - January 22, 2008

Oh, yes, I agree with you all. The shuttle is way too large, or the bay is way too small. Either way, the proportions are off, and they always have been. That bay doesn’t meet a single building code. It should be twice that size to allow the craft to enter safely.

56. GARY - January 22, 2008

Bleh… why does the enterprise look so bland? is it made to look like TNG? it looks like if it’s hull is made out of some dull plastic and not metal looking, in every shot even if old, the good old enterprise looks far better than this CGI thinngie. The ships ilumination looks terrible and so do the buzzards

57. T Negative - January 22, 2008

Interesting note about Lou Antonio (Lokai), he is now a TV director and worked with Shatner in Boston Legal recently.

http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Lou_Antonio

58. SteveinSF - January 22, 2008

#49
the burning city shots were cut for syndication. You’re not crazy

59. Odkin - January 22, 2008

I couldn’t care less about the Trek-trivia quibbling about registry numbers, hangar size and nacelle proportions. All I will say is that, like always, CBS digital has taken bright, vibrant, colorful, clear, lively effects and reduced them to a fuzzy, bland, star-less mundane “realism”. Any life, imagination or excitement is totally sucked out of these images. Science fiction is not documentary filmmaking any more than comics is life drawing. Without an element of the fantastic, why bother?

60. Aragorn189 - January 22, 2008

I personally think that they are doing a marvelous job with the effects. They are an overall improvement. However, I have to agree with #50. “The Ultimate Computer” is going to be a great episode. I really hope they show the ships in complex maneuvers like they did with “The Doomsday Machine.” That would make that episode even better.

61. Xplodin' Nacelle - January 22, 2008

Overall a great episode. The few things that bugged me are as follows….

1. Scotty’s teeth Xtreme closeup (c’mon CBS-D can’t you guys respect Jimmy’s memory, & “bleach” his teeth?)

2. The wobbly shuttle that was WAY too small in the viewscreen shots, & WAY too big for the shuttlebay. I actually expected it to smack off of the bay doors like in ST V.

3. The in & out motion of the red alert lights was so hard to watch that it actually gave me a headache. (I know they have stock footage from other eps that they could’ve spliced in there)

4. The decontamination apparatus under the ship was a pointless addition, as nothing emitted from it, & the planet’s color stayed the same throughout.

62. T Negative - January 22, 2008

Anthony,

Any word on the Trek remastered previews you used to have?? I know ST.com used to have them, apparently CBS has screwed that up.

I was hoping to see the “Ultimate Computer” preview in a couple weeks.

63. Buckaroohawk - January 22, 2008

sharon fisher (#49),

The original episode did have scenes of Loki and Beel running through the Enteprise corridors with shots of burning cities overlayed. It looks like those shots were removed for syndication.

I’m actually glad they removed those shots. They never worked for me. The scenes of burning buildings were obviously old WW2 stock footage and the actors weren’t very convincing as they half-stepped through the sets trying to make it seem like they’ve been running forever.

Anyway, whenever Kirk and company go from the bridge to the transporter room, they get there in no time at all.

I’ve also never liked the “my ship was invisible” thing for Beel’s craft, and I was holding out some thin hope that they’d try to fix that obvious money-saving plot device. No luck on that, though.

Still, even though moral of the story is far from subtle, the performances in this episode are all top-notch.

64. Scott - January 22, 2008

Re: 48 & 53: Here’s a bit of obscure trivia for you. The lights under the main viewscreen on the bridge had open electrical contacts on the back. Some poor stage hand had to run a nail along them to get them to light up. No lie. That’s why they’re all different speeds, and very erratic at times.

Now whoever can tell me where I remember reading that gem gets a cookie.

Scott B. out.

65. Xplodin' Nacelle - January 22, 2008

Btw, that shuttle should’ve only wobbled in space, since Spock’s line referred to it “following an irratic course”, but when the tractor beam guided it into the bay it would’ve been a controlled landing. I can’t believe CBS-D missed this.

…..maybe it was all of those psychodelic red alert trips the staff was on hampered their better judgement? LOL

66. SteveinSF - January 22, 2008

Thank you Scott ( #64) I always wondered about that. They must have changed it to something mechanical in the 3rd season, the movement of the lights were at a set speed and looked different compared to the 1st season ( see Spock’s Brain when they are all hanging out looking at star maps on the main viewer). Love that obscure trivia!

67. Xplodin' Nacelle - January 22, 2008

Re: # 63

I agree that maybe a ST III type of viewscreen “distortion” would’ve been more believable for Biel’s ship, but I’ll embrace the invisibilty sheathing over the nothing happens decontamination scene.

68. Mark Anton - January 22, 2008

I think CBS-Digital did an excellent job with this episode. It’s too bad we couldn’t really see what the Enterprise was doing when it decontaminated the planet. It looked no different than it does when it orbits a planet, and yet somehow the planet got magically healed.

69. spockboy - January 22, 2008

I’m glad they are at least ATTEMPTING to do some different angles. I thought that was the whole point, not having to use the same old stock footage left to right shots.
Although out of scale the hanger bay is looking a bit better LIGHTING wise .Much brighter.
The one thing that I find to be a constant irritant is the viewscreen.
Each shot seems to have it’s own particular collection of “dust particles” (from post production no doubt) Even the color of the walls seems to change within an episode.
For God’s sake just pick the best, cleanest, color balanced shot, clean it up to perfection, and use it exclusively. Since you are completely changing what is ON the screen, it becomes a MOOT point. At least pick the best shot within each episode if you don’t want to use a generic one.
Someone commented on the lack of illumination on the Enterprise. Agreed, this is CBS-D’s Achilles heel, but the hanger bay as I mentioned shows promise.
Perhaps when the last episode is done they’ll have it completely right.

Frank Gorshin was a great actor.
Check out his impressions….

70. Captain Scokirk - January 22, 2008

The original “Hangar Deck” Miniature always seemed too big, it looked like you could park 10 shuttles in there, In Star Trek V we saw a hangar deck that more realistically seemed to fit 2 shuttles and breathing room- maybe that is the intent with the scale change to the shuttlecraft scenes.

The new efx always look so dark, the lighting matches the bad from behind lighting of late TNG and subsequent series,

Why no bright stars or “blue” tint to the ship? No one goes in to the live footage and grays it down so who thought this was the best way to go for the exteriors?

Did they forget that the Ent D was blue tinted in homage to the Original series?

The ship is suposed to have a blue tint.

71. Thomas Jensen - January 22, 2008

Actually, I didn’t see this. But seeing it’s a third season episode, I’m hoping that Paramount will, at least, release all three seasons of original trek on hd-dvd. I mean, it was trek that got me into it and I’m happy to check it out, but I’d like to use my player for original trek, a few up-scaled regular sized dvds and what else I’ve got on hd now. If I can’t get something in the future on hd-dvd then I’ll decide if I want to purchase a blu-ray player then. But I’d at least prefer to have all the trek collection on one format for simplicities sake.

I’ll wait and see this episode when it comes to hd-dvd… oh, also on the SFX video. That’s what I’ll do… really.

72. Russ-- A Trek Fan from Way Back - January 22, 2008

If you look at those decontamination scenes two or more times you can see the subtle color changes to the planet as the Enterprise does it’s decontamination runs. The planet starts out as a murky brownish-grey color and by the time of the last pass, the colors have come back (oceans a nice deep blue, land masses green , etc). So, unlike the original in which a more drastic color change was made, in the remastered version, it’s definitely much more subtle.

As for those lights under the view screen, looks like whatever stock shot they used had different sequences of lights. Sometimes the lights went from left to right in groups of three, other times it was one at a time, and at still other times, it was more of a random style. I think the whole “run the nail across the contacts to make the lights sequence” trivia came from Herb Solow’s fairly recent book on the making of the original series if I’m not mistaken.

73. The Vulcanista - January 22, 2008

#49, 58

Weirdly enough, TVLand had also aired LTBYLB the previous evening. I watched both (Imsuchageek) to see the differences in syndie packages.

TVLand had the burning buildings, whereas they did not have the scene with Spock eavesdropping on Beal (sp?)

Peace. Live long and prosper.

74. The Vulcanista - January 22, 2008

#68
The version I recorded showed the ocean getting bluer and the greens getting a little greener as the decon process progressed. That was about the only thing. And some visual candy would have been nice during the decon scene as well. The original was much more dramatic.

Peace. Live long and prosper.

75. Anthony Thompson - January 22, 2008

59.
You got it right. The new effects are a mixed bag, at best. When I compare the before/after screenshots, I find myself preferring the originals more often than not. And the shuttlebay sequence is pathetic! Exeter and New Voyages have done better work than that!

I wish that CBS was really committed to doing the job right.

76. Commodore Z - January 22, 2008

I thought the hangar deck looked good.

77. TrekMadeMeWonder - January 22, 2008

Thanks for posting the video! I always watch for the FX reel since I easily miss a couple shots each week.

78. OR Coast Trekkie - January 22, 2008

Yes, the color does turn from that burky brown/gray to the vibrant earth-like planet. I agree with #74, there really should’ve been an effect there… because really, the Enterprise just orbited the planet and POOF, the planet is magically clean. IMHO, that’s actually kind of a big miss on the CBS-D part. However, the planets themselves (Anteres and Charon) were magnificient. Especially Charon, with the city lights still on…

A tractor beam towing the shuttle in would be nice too (and the dialogue CLEARLY states getting a tractor beam on the shuttle). However, I do kind of like that the shuttle is being brought in at an angle. It deomnstrates that out in space, not everything is going to be flying in the same orientation.

The pink glow between the two would be nice if it were changed or altered to look less “cartoony.”

The shuttlebay… is it know how close to the back wall the camera is stationed?

As for the zoom in/out on the red alert: while yes, it is cheesy and dizzying at the same time, obviously, that was intentional, and altering that would’ve have changed the artistic integrity. So along that aspect, it was a good decision not to change.

79. paustin - January 22, 2008

I must confess the new effects killed one of my favorite enterprise shots…..after the title rolls, the camera gets so fricking close to the ship, its just sick….r.i.p and it will be missed

80. paustin - January 22, 2008

oh and one more thing as stated before the shuttle was too far away on the viewscreen…..pls i was majorly hoping to get a shot of the enterprise in orbit over Cheron….a very unique burned out planet

81. JimJ - January 22, 2008

Anthony-
Thank you so much for giving me my remastered “fix”. You’re the best!!!!

82. Even more Life Like - January 23, 2008

The original shots are way better!!

83. neonknights - January 23, 2008

I agree. The original decontamination of the planet is much more effective. At least the shuttlebay scene corrects a 40-year-old goof with the shuttle having a correct registration number.

84. DJT - January 23, 2008

Just watched that parody clip.

A catsuit never fails to bring a tear to me eye.

Good stuff.

85. ety3 - January 23, 2008

The extreme close-ups didn’t bother me as much as the quick zoom ‘red alert’ shots did. I half expected Joanne Worley to pop out and poke her finger in her cheek.

!
In Spain we have just been told that Paramount Spain won’t release the 4th season of Enterprise on DVD!

Ever!

We have everything else already on the shops, and the series has already been shown on TV with spanish audio (like the previous 3) but now Paramoun Spain doesn’t answer and we have been told that they wont (nor answer nor release it)!

Horror! What do we do now?!

88. BritFan - January 23, 2008

God, this new video-hosting site is awful.
Every time I tried to watch it, even after giving it minutes to load up fully, it STILL stops and starts, the audio going way out of synch with the video (which is like a succession of still photos). And I’ve got pretty quick broadband!

*Please* can we find a better hosting service? the old vids all worked fine but this one is hopeless!

89. Trekee - January 23, 2008

I know it’s weird, but I think this is the episode I remember most as a kid. I know, it’s using a photon torpedo barrage to crack a nut and everything, but back in the 70s when the UK TV still had the Black and White Minstrels and it was “obvious” to most people then that being white was superior – this episode really did make a blunt point that actually had to be said. Probably this bluntly.

I know I always thought of it whenever I was growing up and was faced by ignorance and it just made any of the arguements for racial supremacy all the more ridiculous.

So yes, 40 years later it does seem incredible, but this was just another one of those episodes that made Star Trek great.

I know we’ve still got a long way to go, but 40 years on we’ve made so much progress, at least in my little backwater country.

@87: that is so ironic… I went cold on Enterprise on Season 3, but Season 4 had so many great episodes. Spain is Region 2 isn’t it? So you could buy the UK release though I’m just checking the language options though and season 3 only had English. Anyone in the UK got Season 4 and can confirm if it’s English only?

90. Stanky McFibberich - January 23, 2008

Yeah, the shuttle does look a little out of scale in the hangar deck.
Otherwise, as usual, I like what they have done.
I have not seen any of these in HD, so I imagine it looks even better that way, but I’m nowhere near wanting to start spending on an HD format at this point since regular DVDs look so good on my HD set.

I remember watching the very first episode of Batman (when I was very young) and imitating Gorshin’s Riddler laugh for about a week straight. In fact, I still do that whenever I get a chance.

91. Cheve - January 23, 2008

89. Trekee

any spanish audio on season 4 Enterprise DVDs will be southamerican Spanish instead of european spanish (castillian) (and both are really diferent enough for that to be a problem. Imagine if all of the characters in star trek talked with texan accent and slang and you’ll understand what I mean).

The DVDs where released in the world before 4th season’s audio was recorded in castillian spanish, so , the spanish scifi chanel and Paramount Spain agreed that the Spanish release would be delayed in order to be able to have castillian audio instead of southamerican spanish.

This has been so with seasons 1 to 3, they awaited untill all the series where shown on spanish scifi chanel in castillian spanish and then released the Spanish DVD with that audio, but now, look at what they are telling us!

92. ety3 - January 23, 2008

#35, etc. –

On the planet not changing, I disagree. Look at the shots above. On the first pass, the planet is washed out and not colorful at all. And then in the viewscreen shot, it’s more verdant and vibrant.

It was a definite shift, but more subtle than the “yellow-to-blue” shift in the original.

93. Marian Ciobanu - January 23, 2008

-Cool….!!!

94. FREAKAZOID - January 23, 2008

My family once met Frank Gorshin and Adam West at Planet Hollywood in Atlanta Georgia. When meeting Gorshin my dad said “You were great in Star Trek!” Mr Gorshin thought that was cool. He didn’t think anyone remembered that role.

95. badboy1230 - January 23, 2008

I generally like the remastering, but I wasn’t crazy about the “circular course” shot. Looked too much like a small plastic model. The rest of the shots were great!

I know they couldn’t do anything about the invisble spaceship, but I thought they could have spiced it up a little by having the words “Collision Alert” flasing in the bottom of the viewscreen in the same font as the tactical display from “Lights of Zetar.”

But those are just a couple of nitpicks. Good job overall.

96. Okuda, get out of Daren D's chair! - January 23, 2008

#75, I agree 100% Better FX companies are out there but we’ll have to be over gracious for the mixed bag of FX we’ve received so far. Shame.

97. JBS - January 23, 2008

Never liked this episode, still don’t. The premise was good, but the execution was awful. Could not make myself watch the remastered version; got better thngs to do. Big waste of Mr. Gorshin’s talent; always like him.

Now that fan vid was great! I was really impressed. You should view it at http://www.racsofilms.com/trekdownloads.htm. The youtube version is unmerciflly chopped up, especially part 2.

Thanks Anthony – I never saw that racso video before; it was a real treat. Your go to link worked despite the fact you spelled the website address wrong.

98. Herbert Eyes Wide Open - January 23, 2008

This episode, by today’s standards is certainly heavy handed in it’s message… Hell, it’s like getting bludgeoned! :) But, for the sixties, I applaud them tackling a subject that was a difficult and divisive moral imperative at the time.

However, once again CBS-D has shown an unevenness and lack of inspiration in the execution of their shot choice and CGI work. Some shots look terrific and some shots are… well, [yawn.]

With all due respect to the artists and collaborators, it really is too bad that CBS/Paramount didn’t have more respect, vision and passion when assembling the elements and creating the mandate for this project.

Let’s hope that everything this endeavor lacks shows up in spades in JJ’s et al efforts. No pun intended given the themes in this particular episode. ;)

“Is that another chicken joke?”

And, in the award for cinematography, the episode’s “Red Alert” fast zoom is awarded this week’s Flying Fickle Finger of Fate.

100. star trackie - January 23, 2008

Wow,this one was fun. LOTS of new angles on the Enterprise, can’t wait to get the HD discs of this one.

Sure there are some crazy zooms going on, but all in all a good episode. I especially like the part where Kirk orders the destruct code. Gorshin was great. The new shots of the Enterprise really enhances this one. I especially love the long shot with the tiny ship zipping through the stars.

Good stuff.

101. Iowagirl - January 23, 2008

‘There was persecution on Earth once; I remember reading about it in my history texts.’
‘Yes, but that was back in the 20th century – there’s no such primitive thinking today.’

A bit blatant and not very subtle? Maybe.

Out of date? On the contrary.

#100
Agreed – the self-destruct scene is terrific.

And the new angles on the Enterprise look beautiful.

102. ster j - January 23, 2008

Great beauty shots of the Big E, but looking at all the fx in one sitting, it was blatantly obvious that Sulu and Checkov were playing musical chairs with taller stand-ins (sit-ins??) Plus in a long shot there was was blonde actor sitting at Navigation. You know, the one who, like Mr. Leslie, appeared all over the ship in various coveralls throughout the three years. I don’t think he ever got a line, let alone a name.

Ah, well. Ya can’t win ‘em all.

103. British Naval Dude - January 23, 2008

Starrrrr Trek not being subtle?
I recall one of that thar Picard’s episodes wherein Kirk’s son and Khan’s “Number One” go at it like Loki and Beely do. In fact, I hazard to say that Picard epsiode was a heavy handed anti-drug episode.

Continuity? Riddle me this: Who be both dead and enemies that suddenly co-dependents with lightning in thar veins??? harrrr harrrrr

arrrr….

104. Blimpboy - January 23, 2008

In regards to the history of the Gene Coon story, I had read several sources saying the first choices were of a Devil chasing an Angel. More religon than race?

Holy Cross Referencing, Batman!

106. Andy Patterson - January 23, 2008

I have some great shots of Gorshin and me at Sardis after his one man show on Broadway. I’d put them on here if I knew how to do that stupid photo bucket thing (Those types of things never work for me) Frank was always cool and remembered me when he brought the show to Dallas. “Andy, what are you doing here?” “I live here Frank.”

107. dan - January 23, 2008

Time and Time again fans are complaing that the camera angles and quality of the effects look better in the 60′s original.

The FX are supposed to be enhancements not wholesale changes.

Aside from lighting and scale,
Why are the camera angles totally changed on all the shots?

108. Spock with a crowbar - January 23, 2008

In that fan video, the Joker has emo hair. LOL XD

109. RetroWarbird - January 23, 2008

The effects of revitalizing the dying Arriannus look pretty cool, with the planet going from drab to vibrant. (Although just “how” that’s happening is kind of HUGE for Star Trek. I mean, the Genesis Project wasn’t around yet … a viral epidemic can do that to a planet, and is instantly reversible?)

But anyway, looks good. And I think making Cheron approached from an angle where it’s contrasted heavily between its light and dark sides is really clever.

This episode and its “Cheronites” or “Cherons” or however you’d refer to them, is a classic. It’s a shame they’re the last two, and there’s no way to see more half-black, half-white guys running around Star Trek zapping people with pink attacks.

110. RetroWarbird - January 23, 2008

Just on an aside …

I watched “The Lights of Zetar” last night, and I can’t wait to see what the CBS-D crew does with that little gem of an episode. Will Memory-Alpha get a radical new design? How about the Zetars themselves? How about the twinkle in Mira Romaine’s eye?

111. TomBot2008 - January 23, 2008

MISSED OPPROTUNITY: Cheron depicted as a stark white planet with a permanent darkside. ;-) I’ll admit, I only half paid attention… I didn’t notice ANY decontamination… LOL! I agree the viewscreen shot of the shuttle was too small and the shuttle too big in the bay as well.

112. TomBot2008 - January 23, 2008

Heh, heh… well, well, too slow to the post button, I see I’ve been.. Re:#109… Still, I didn’t notice that Retro, but like I said, not paying full attention… It’s just a barely okay episode in my opinion… ;-)

113. LordEdzo - January 23, 2008

OK, remastering/VFX folks: The “invisible” tractor beams DON’T WORK. It looks stupid, like somebody forgot to put them in, and they don’t jibe with the visible tractor beams shown in “Star Trek: Enterprise” and all series subsequent to TOS.

Once again, I’m not going to purchase any of your remastered DVDs until you go back and fix this and a bunch of other stuff I’ve mentioned before (ahem … impulse engines for the Romulan ship, etc.).

However, all the other VFX looked absolutely great. The color is more vibrant than ever. Thanks.

114. toddk - January 23, 2008

there is al old lp record called “Star Trek Bloopers” that I got from a friend in the late 80′s, while it certainly has it’s share of blunders, It also has Shatner yelling an explitive as he accidently reads gorhins lines..there is alot of intersting stuff there, Wondering if anyone else has heard this? It features raw dialogue from “Battlefield, the way to eden, turnabout intruder, and whom gods destroy.

115. Andy Patterson - January 23, 2008

45. Ali – January 22, 2008
Shatner pronounces sabotage (as sabot-ahge) really oddly at about 2:45

Ah yes…. I knew that was somewhere…..and this can go with a long list of Shatner pronunciations I listed back in another thread. I’ll make an mental note to add this to my list. Along with this is……

…”Patterns of Force” has two great examples of Shatner-isms.

‘Natzis’ and ‘Gestapo’ using the flat ‘A’ sound in both words as opposed to the ‘ahh” sound that I always heard in Hogans Heroes or other movies.

a BONUS Shatner-ism *

….is one not found in the show but found on book on tape of Star Trek Memories, read by the author himself in which he describes a period of renaissance in his life. Shatner pronounces it re-NAY-ssance as opposed to the usually heard REN-aissance.

Then there are the sped up sentences that become one word. ‘Gotothedevil’. Go to the Devil. “Day of the Dove”.

116. Doug - January 23, 2008

I DO like the new remastered CGI effects, however, I do feel that scale seems to be lost to some degree. I think a little more time and computer power is needed to render scale on the ships more fully.

Also the traditional end shot of the Enterprise “riding off into the starfield” (how’s that for Roddenberry’s analogy calling TREK a” Wagon Train to the Stars?”) looks a little too cartoonish… in fact, it looks virtually identical to the animated TREK’s endings (not that that is a bad thing).

I cannot wait to see how detailed they actually get with the space battle in “The Ultimate Computer!” I really do like the CGI effects… honest I do.

117. Doug - January 23, 2008

#113: “OK, remastering/VFX folks: The “invisible” tractor beams DON’T WORK. It looks stupid, like somebody forgot to put them in, and they don’t jibe with the visible tractor beams shown in “Star Trek: Enterprise” and all series subsequent to TOS.”

Personally, I think the only reason visible tractor beams were ever added in the later productions of TREK was due to a lack of imagination on the producers’ part (or maybe they think we lack a sense of imagination) — I feel the same way about adding ‘swish’ noises in space signifying the speed of a ship flying by–who needs it?.

I mean, why does any type of radiation have to be visible? We don’t see, gravity, light, television or radio waves, so why expect a tractor beam to be visible? To me, a sound effect is just as effective.

118. Doug - January 23, 2008

On a related note to the use of sound effects, I cite the attack scenes in “Balance of Terror.” The original versions did not use any sound effects when both the Enterprise and the Romulan Bird of Prey (the same effects were later used in “The Deadly Years”) were firing on each other.

I thought those explosions were incredibly realistic and there was nary a sound when the pulses exploded… and just as dramatic!

I fear today’s audience has become far too accustomed to “Star Wars” type visual and sound effects. I’ve always preferred the “less is more” approach to filmmaking.

119. dan - January 23, 2008

We are all Delighted when the effects work is subtle and and doesn’t take away from the episode. I think of the enhanced mining station, matte paintings and background work.

Some closeups of Enterprise are truly marvelous. But there is NO excuse for the 60′s FX to look and feel more realistic and use superior angles and lighting. Time and time again I’m noticing how small Enterprise is, or looking like a small toy, or performing a near barrel roll. :(

120. Engon - January 23, 2008

More trivia…

When they shot close-ups of Bele and Loki as they ran through the Enterprise corridors, the camera crew had to keep the running actors at a set distance from the camera (for either the sake of composition or focus). Their solution was to tie a rope to the camera platform and have each actor hold on to the other end as he ran. For a few moments, you can still see Gorshin holding a rope in his hand.

#78
I’m pretty sure that those aren’t “city lights” down on Cheron. It’s the planet’s cities burning to the ground.

121. JeFF - January 23, 2008

The name of the shuttle was Da Vinci, according to Memory Alpha.

122. SteveinSF - January 23, 2008

I wondered about the “city lights” on Cheron too–thought is was burning cities but couldn’t be sure.

#107—The 60′s SFX camera angles are mostly better in my opinion as well.

The movement of ship is slow against the faster pace of the star field and the various running lights on Enterprise ( small strobe on the right rear of the ship for example) all add to the visual impression of a very large ship.
One would argue that in zero gravity such movement may not be realistic but neither is the rocket rumble of the engines , the sound of the weapons in space, or the SWOOSH as the Big E speeds by in warp.

In my opinion ..

123. Steve S - January 23, 2008

We got it here in LA, if you could call it that. At least they show ST-R at a decent time (11 PM Saturday night), but apparently there was a sports event (Clippers game) that ran everything over. I was trying to catch up on my Mythbusters and I figgered I’d let the DVR handle it. As I surfed away from Mythbusters at about 12:15 AM I passed the KTLA-HD, and there was ST-R, in FULL HD!

First of all, I was unaware ANY station was showin ST-R in HD and then I realized that KTLA is a) in a major market and 2) about 5 minutes away by delivery van from CBS Digital (which I believe is on the Paramount lot) so channel 5 isn’t hampered with trying to store a digitally delivered HD show, CBS could literally messenger them a digital tape or bring it on a removable hard drive.

Second, the replay, which is shown Monday morning at 4 AM, was pre-empted for a friggin’ AMERICAN IDOL repeat. I know they have to show something there, but I doubt the demographic for Idol wants to watch repeats of something they already know the outcome of. Let’s also be real and say that they aren’t even up at 4 AM on Monday morning expecially after a hard weekend of clubbing.

Please, KTLA, give me my ST-R back.

124. OR Coast Trekkie - January 23, 2008

#120 – I stand corrected

#117 – By your logic then, all they would ever need is just a picture of the ship, and you cna just imagine everything else. Just imagine a planet, imagine that it is in space, imagine it is flying. Visual effects are meant to enhance the experience of a show.

125. Antonin - January 23, 2008

I absolutely do not agree that “Battlefield” came “close to parody.” To me it has always been one of the most meaningful and significant Trek episodes. It was and continues to be one of my favorites.

Gorshin’s character was intense, pompous, arrogant…simply fabulous.

126. Engon - January 23, 2008

I think Gorshin deserved the Emmy simply for the derisive way in which he dragged out the word “apes.”

127. Battletrek - January 23, 2008

So who likes the 3rd season the best like me?

128. Iowagirl - January 24, 2008

#127

I don’t like it the best, but I think it’s much underrated. There are some really great episodes such as

The Enterprise Incident
Day of The Dove
Is There In Truth No Beauty
The Paradise Syndrom
Plato’s Stepchildren
Turnabout Intruder

Of course, there is some shortfall (Spock’s Brain, And the Children Shall Lead), but all things considered the 3rd season still offers high-class scifi.

129. Andy Patterson - January 24, 2008

And despite what some say….I love “Omega Glory”

130. Andy Patterson - January 24, 2008

And I like “Spectre of the Gun”. A big defining Keonig/Chekov episode. I think his best.

131. j w wright - January 24, 2008

the old connie still looks more real, the new shuttlebay is interesting

shoulda used physical minuatures, though

132. JimJ (hailing frequencies open) - January 24, 2008

I really loved all of the effects that CBS-D did with this except one. And it was glaringly horrible, I think. It’s the effect when Scotty says something like “We’re going no where mighty fast.” A little tiny Enterprise like in a video game does not do it for me. GAG! Why can’t they keep the scale? Frankly, the effect they used in the original was much better (and is a very complimentary view of the ship anyway). This little toy Enterprise looked like it was trying to do a “Pirates of the Caribbean” maelstrom pass, or something. Sorry to keep ranting, but when all the effects besides that one are DEAD ON GREAT, it just hacks me off! LOL

133. LordEdzo - January 24, 2008

One other thing, VFX folks: During this “2nd season” of TOS remastered, you’ve been increasingly using “fast flyby” stars to indicate the Enterprise travelling at warp speed.

I like that … however, to be consistent throughout the entire remastered TOS, you need to go back and add similar VFX to the “1st season” of TOS remastered.

Please make it so! Thx for all your hard work!

134. Shatner's Bassoon - January 24, 2008

Hey I’m a user over here in the UK. I cant watch the VFX video. Is it just me or everybody else.

#64: “Now whoever can tell me where I remember reading that gem gets a cookie.”

That would be Justman and Solow’s “Inside Star Trek” book.

Justman remembered that the erratic flashing of the lights made it impossible to sync them to the “ping” sound effect, so they finally decided to sync either the first or last light in a shot.

140. Diabolik - January 24, 2008

The half-black and half-white greasepaint makeup in this was embarrassing. It would have been more effective to have a pattern on their skins, with black patterns on white for one, and white patterns on black on the other. This would have looked more realistic and less like a blatent effort at message, and been more of a subtle approach. And still made them look rediculous for letting it make a difference.

141. Engon - January 24, 2008

Bele might have had a green star on his belly and Loki not. Bele could then have insisted that Kirk take him to the planet Sneetch.
