The Star Trek DVD and Blu-ray sets coming out tomorrow have lots of cool special features, showing off lots of behind-the-scenes footage. TrekMovie has nabbed an exclusive clip from a section on the make-up, talking about Romulans, and showing off the Salt Vampire and Gorn that never made it to the screen.
Clip: Masks vs. Prosthetics from ‘Aliens’ Featurette
The “Aliens” featurette is available on both the 2-disk DVD and the 3-disk Blu-ray.
The Gorn (from “Arena”) and the Salt Vampire (also known as the M-113 creature from “The Man Trap”) are both classic original series aliens. The new versions were developed to be background aliens for the Rura Penthe Klingon prison scenes, which were cut from the final Star Trek film.
If you want to reserve your copy on Amazon, you can pre-order all three sets (but the Amazon exclusive is now sold out).
