The Enterprise is endangered by Captain Kirk’s best friend when he is turned into a powerful being…and you know what they say about power corrupting.
This is Star Trek’s second pilot (after the Cage) and the one that convinced NBC to pick up the show. This is the reason there are some differences between this episode and the rest of the series (both visually and with the cast). There are a number of effect shots for CBS to update with CGI…
- New Enterprise shots (ship model is different for this episode)
- Different opening credits
- New galactic barrier
- New planet Delta VegaNew
- matte painting of Delta Vega Station
- Updates on some viewscreen shots
- Possible some new ‘zap’ effects for passing through the barrier and the final fight scene
…but don’t expect to see any changes to Kirk’s tombstone…the team ran out of time before they could decide if they should change it.
Expect TrekMovie.com’s screenshots and videos later
So what did you think of the remastered WNMHGB?
