Has anyone checked out the original ST episodes with the updated special effects? This is like when Lucas updated the original Star Wars episodes 4,5, and 6 to make them look better when compared with the newer episodes 1,2, and 3. I set my DVR to record the series as it's being run once a week late night on a local station. They are mostly shots that replace the bad matte location scenes and of the Enterprise in orbit. The planets are much more realistic and the scenes with Klingon and Romulan ships look less like plastic models on strings. Since they didn't mess with the actual stories I find them much more enjoyable to watch than the "original" originals.

Wait a couple of years and you can put yourself, your friends, enemies, and relatives into the action, or morph them or the original characters to suit your tastes image, sound, movementwise, or alter the lines and plot.
