I don't see anywhere in the original article that this has been confirmed. Digital Bits says they are waiting on official confirmation which has not happened yet.

there is no OFFICIAL press release that is true.
I said "confirmed" because it is Bill Hunt and if he says he is now able to report "accurate" info from industry sources, well that is "confirmed" as far I am concerned.

Hmmm, I thought the reason for the "remastering" was because it looked "too bad" in high def?Actually, I wonder if the original episodes will be an sd extra. Wouldn't surprise me.

It says it includes the theatrical versions of 1, 2, and 6, but do they include the(way better) directors cuts in each case? They better just put out the press release to end the confusion!

Not a Star Trek fan, so these are easily passable, but the new movie looks good because of its cast.

I wish they'd put out seasons 2 & 3 already.

I will grab TOS, but will probably wait on the movies.

Side note, I freaking hate the digital bits... When is that jerk of a digital media reporter going to realize that white on black burns your eyes out?

Anyway high on my list of things is that 6 disc movie pack for the time being... Pricing dependant.

Normally I will defend Bill Hunt, but in this case, I agree with you whole-heartedly. Even after going to The Digital Bits for several years, I still get thrown off after reading his site and then going to another site and seeing shimmering horizontal white and gray lines.

Anyway, I have the three season sets of the original show on S-DVD, but I'm still excited if Bill's right about both the original and remastered versions being included. (That is, if the extras from the original sets are also ported over, or at least what is there covers the same ground.)
