    "1966-1967 television season have been carefully restored, remastered, and augmented for today's technology and audiences." Oh why can't they just leave it alone ??? So "today's audiences" will not watch it unless it is restored, remastered ? says alot for "todays audience" if you ask me !

    "Spock initially seemed to shout his orders"That was more of a tip of the hat to naval tradition, with the Captain giving his orders to the first mate, and he bellowing them to the crew. They went back to that in the first seasons of TNG as well, with Riker referred to as Number One. In both cases it came off as odd, partially because lay-people didn't know about that tradition, and since the starship bridge was a very quiet place (as opposed to the deck of a ship of the bridge of a submarine where you actually HAD to bellow to be heard) it seemed off that this man was repeating what everybody heard the captain said quite clearly.Call me a traditionalist, but like Star Wars, I'd like to see a cleaned up copy of the original versions of the episodes as well, crappy effects at all. As cool as it is to see the Gorn blink, it's neat to have the untouched ones around as well, if only for archival purposes.

    This will DEFINITELY be the final version(s) for me. Being able to toggle back and forth between old and new effects is the lynchpin for me. I'm sure I can get enough selling the previous versions to pay for this one. Then I'm done. Don't care if they make it 3-D, I ain't buying another set!

    The way that Fedric Brown got into it (as i recall) was that they were just about to begin shooting when Legal started sending up distress flares – the writer had, apparently honestly and unconsciously, plagiarised a Brown story he'd read once many years before. The quick like little smirps arranged a payment and credit to Brown.

    As I recall, the Star Trek spinoffs from mid-90's on — did a tremendously bad job of writing promos for the next episode, with the aspects they mentioned being very unimportant and uninteresting, and not central to the episode.Add the mistake of putting Voyager and Enterprise on a network that didn't reach everywhere. When Enterprise finally made it to my area in syndication for the last season, the writers were assuming that everyone saw earlier episodes and knew who the characters were. They seemed very flat and nameless and not adequately introduced, in my experience.Obviously just some longstanding peeves of mine.
