Star Trek fans can beam into new Blu-ray features online

The crew of the restored Blu-ray Star Trek sets are getting together for additional commentaryStar Trek fans who bought the first season of the remastered original series on Blu-ray can now enjoy new enhanced features for the discs online this week.

The online portal is a clever way for CBS/Paramount to make the Star Trek: "The Original Series Season One" a gift that keeps on giving. The Blu-ray issue included the enhanced CG visual effects that accompanied the most recent remastering.

Since the odds are only hardcore fans drop the money to buy an entire season set of the original series just to see a clearer picture and new special effects, CBS/Paramount obviously wants to appeal to such fans with even more in-depth commentary than the discs already provide.

Using their "Season One Blu-ray" discs, fans will have access to new bonus videos, including round-table discussions with special effects producers Mike and Denise Okuda, Dave Rossi and Neil Wray (pictured). The Okudas are veteran Star Trek crew members, having worked in the graphics and effects end of multiple Trek feature films and TV series. Also, David Gerrold, Tribble inventor and writer of "The Trouble with Tribbles," sits in for a question or two.

Finally, the online portal will also look ahead to the approaching release of the remastered "Season Two" later this year.

I'm glad I got the last dvd release before they "Lucas-ified" it.
