The Shuttle Pod crew is back, and this time they’re discussing the 2022 Director’s Edition of The Motion Picture. This is easily the biggest “Legacy Trek” project since the remastering of The Next Generation. Join them as the podcasters give an overview of the rushed release in 1979, and why legendary director Robert Wise didn’t really get his final cut until the 2001 release of The Director’s Edition on DVD which helped to refine the film with a more polished narrative. They delve into what exactly makes the DE different from other versions out there, with a brief overview of the changes, along with a specific discussion of the new 2022 version.
