CBS announced this week that they are going to release a HD Version of the original series of Star Trek. I have mixed feelings about this since I am a big fan of the original crew. I have seen what the new FX could look like with the classic show (In a Mirror, Darkly from Enterprise and Trials and Tribble-ations from DS9) and I think the results were mixed at best (Hello messed up Gorn). I am excited that the Okudas are working on the project since they are well known students of Trek lore. I think the biggest issue will be to see how the live action footage from the 60’s will blend with state of the art FX. At least for the first time in 15 years Trek will be back on in syndication.
