Remember, this episode airs next weekend. This weekend is "For The World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky"
Words fail me! This is so far above and beyond…
You have restored my faith in today’s youth.
COOOOOOL! This pinwheel is still a pinwheel, but it’s much more menacing now. And the shuttle sequence looks wicked!
AHHHHHHH! CBS-D, Anthony, the whole thing! You guys are killing me! That trailer looked awesome! Aside from the extremely cool-looking FX shots (finally, the shuttle craft goes DEEPER into the shuttle bay!), how about Jane Wyatt reaching back for that slap? That’s easily the best-cut trailer they’ve made for any Remastered episode. Somebody, please make an animated GIF of that slap. Boom!
Oh good lord, I just got that. ZtoA. Atoz. A to Z. He’s the librarian. I can’t believe it took me 40 years to get such a putrid pun.
In the words of Master Po… “Time for you to leave…” LOL
One of my absolute favorite episodes — this one had EVERYTHING! Well, except maybe kissin’.
The new effects looks super-cool. I love how they reimagined the Orion ship. I’m sold. It looks like a wicked-fast, mean little alien ship, but still very true to the original.
Scott B. out.
P.S. CmdrR, don’t feel too bad. While I’ve known about the A to Z/Atoz thing for years, I had to be told; didn’t figure it out all by my lonesome.
Wow! When Jane Wyatt slapped Spock I thought his vulcan ears were going to come flying off! Makes you wonder how many takes they had to do before getting that scene “in the can”. Who says Kirk was the only who got beaten up on the show?
That is the best Trek shuttlecraft landing ever. The live-action footage looks great too. Looks like this episode got some serious TLC.
Nice how the shuttlebay sequence opens up the scale of the show
The new effects elevate an already stong episode.
Good job CBS.
If one could take a macintosh computer and insert it in one’s trousers and then proudly walk down the street with all the passerbys staring at one’s crotch with awe, THAT would describe what CBS-D has done here today.
best effects so far!
That shuttlecraft sequence… wow! It is so reminiscent of the first shuttlecraft approach in Star Trek V. The preview makes everything so exciting! I’m jazzed!
All I can say is that looks awesome. and the Orion ship looks better than I was ever expecting.
If you look closely at the preview when the Enterprise is hit and the bridge is shaking you can see Sulu at the helm. Sulu wasn’t in the episode so it look like they added him in.
#20 – check http://www.startrek.com/html/images/store/downloads/desktops/tos-065-yonada-1600.jpg
Wow. The FX and the editing call to mind the opening line from an old Suburbs song…
“Mommy, I’m shakin’. Slap me…”
(10 credits to anyone who can name the tune)
#17 Was it “Cig in Backwards” or “Tape your Wife to the Ceiling”? I forget which…
It’s time for me to add my “WOW”…. I mean from the shuttle craft landing in the shuttle bay making the Big E seem truly expansive in size to the Orion ship “pinwheeling” by… and then there are the MOVING phasers! I know it’s slightly reminscient of TNG.. but it’s the TOS phasers trying to get a shot at that ship… and then the photon torp explosion or maybe even better was Spock’s mother’s “explosion” across Spock’s face. Now we’re gonna see some good effects.
CBS-D keeps getting better and better with a STEEP learning curve here. Keep up that great work!
Love the shuttlecraft approach shots. This looks very intriguing!
OK, the whole scene of the shuttlecraft approach and landing, the moving phaser beams….I’m drooling…
Excellent work CBS-D!!!
So, do you think CBS-D will digitally remove De Kelley’s cigarette smoke from the surgery scenes in this episode?
Best I have seen previewed yet… looking VERY forward to this one!
OK I got a bit of a stalk on when I saw the people standing up in the top of the shuttle bay looking down at the craft landing. I’ll admit that was pretty cool.
Oh and on the slap thing… ASCII and you shall RECIEVEE…
This episode looks fantastic!! Glad to see a different angle of the Enterprise firing phasers and tracking with the target no less.
I don’t see anyone in the hangar bay when the shuttle is landing. Only after landing.
CBS-D – Fantastic!!!
I love the shuttlecraft hangar deck shot!
I can’t wait!!
Very, very nice!
I have to say this looks mighty good, and I agree this is by far the best trailer video they have put together.
Wow, yes. But it looks like the blew their whole wad in the preview. Whats left to see?
#25 Look up near the ceiling (port side) as the craft is coming down, you see people in the observation area windows.
Plus on the deck level there seems to be an observation area/control area with people in it too!
I agree with the comments so far. Great shuttle landing sequence, nice phaser tracking shot, and EXCELLENT concept for the Orion ship. I love how this one actually *keeps the look* of the indistinct spinning light from the original, but makes it an understandable (and scary!) design.
These trailers are so very good. You have to wonder where these trailer guys were when UPN was putting out those unbelievably bad Enterprise trailers for great shows like “Cogenitor” and “Dear Doctor.”
The small details thrill me. I am very happy to see the Columbus. :)
:) Very nice, would love to have a high res shot of the shuttle approach for my desktop. Haven’t seen the ep in awhile, looks like theres more space/fx shots for the ep that I would have thought. Looks like its going to be awesome!
Problem with getting the early promos now is looking forward to the next weeks eps rather than the one actually coming up. (WNMHGB before Wink of an Eye and now this one.)
Thanks! I have a feeling it will be easier to see them when it’s on the tube. These shots make me even more excited for “Doomsday” and the MANY shuttle shots we will get to see in that one.
i agree with Skippy. For a while CBS were releasing trailers to affiliates on the Wed. before the show’s aired…and they showed up on the Thursday before they aired on StarTrek.com. They are still only sending out the trailers to affiliates a few days before, but ST.com are putting them up over a week before. If it were me I would release them on the Monday or Tuesday before a show aired.
the first week of the trailers showing up early, TrekMovie.com did actually ‘hold back’ a few days and waited until after we had done our review of the previous week…to kind of keep the flow of preview/screenshots/review/preview/etc going. Now we all just have to deal with ‘overlap’
I am looking forward to Babel, it is one of the times they are making an entirely new ship (like they did with the Gorn ship). That one was done by Niel Wray, this one was designed by Okuda. I saw a sketch of the ship when i was at CBS, it is pretty cool.
Ironically by the time Babel is coming up we will all have seen the preview for the big kahuna…Doomsday Machine…possibly dwindling expecations for Babel
I can’t identify which two shuttlecraft those are?
Is it the Columbus and Galileo?
Stunning, absolutely positively uniquely stunning.
Yes, it’s the Galileo and the Columbus.
I believe your right Josh T. I thought it could have been Copernicus or Columbus. Looking at the preview looks like it would have to be columbus and the number 7 was Galileo.
The shuttlecraft sequence is (new york accent) SUPERB!
WELL DONE CBS DIGITAL.
You know it’s odd. One week the fx are kinda non sequitur, and the next they are fabulous. I wish they would tell us WHO did WHAT sequences, so we can complement them personally (and recommend termination for the others…;).Are you listening Dave?
IE-The shot of the Enterprise pulling up on the Botany Bay. SWEET.
I understand however that it would quickly degenerate into a mud-slinging popularity contest.
I’m starting to think that says Copernicus,
what was the shuttle in the “The Menagerie” with Kirk and Mendez?
Perhaps all Enterprise shuttlecraft are designated after astronomers.
These letters are visible in the still: “Columb”. This can only be the Columbus. I am looking forward to “The Doomsday Machine”” to see if they name the shuttle in that episode. Will it be an explorer, an astronomer, or an artist, or something completely different?
In the TNG Enterprise-D they had forcefields to close the shuttlebay. Perhaps they did not have these in the TOS Enterprise and they had to wait until the shuttlebay doors were closed…
What…. nothing negative here? EVERYONE’S happy? Mark this day on a calendar! I have to go with the crowd here too.. the previews look great! Love the shuttle landing.. thanks for the still guys. The CBS-D guys are really doing a fantastic job on these.. can’t wait for when they come out on DVD so I can actually see an episode.
I’ve got to say it does look very good to me… Like you Paul I haven’t seen any of these properly yet. I reply on this great site for all images videos etc for Trek Remastered…
I too would really love to see one of these for real and own them on DVD one day but lets hope they dont rush them out so they can add to all these episodes and fix the little things time hasnt allowed for , I wopuld gladly wait for that before they release them on DVD.
This latest work is looking awesome, and thats just looking at it on the small screen imagine it on a High Def TV in stereo. Now that would be cool to see.
sorry I meant I rely on this great site for all images videos etc for Trek Remastered…
#18 – Good guesses. Right album, wrong tracks.
what was the shuttle in the “The Menagerie” with Kirk and Mendez?i
That was the Picasso.
Not all named after astonomers, unless this is a future historical figure. An astonomer named Picasso!
I’ve noticed this too… I’m beginning to wonder if there are different teams working on each episode, alternating week to week or something. Very inconsistent. WNMHGB looked pretty bad to me, but this shuttle sequence looks great.
