Battle sequences, ship exteriors, galaxy shots and landscapes (which previously came courtesy of matte paintings) will be given more shading, depth and computer-generated believability. The original Alexander Courage-composed score has been rerecorded in stereo and, perhaps best of all, William Shatner’s opening monologue has been remastered, so that “Space, the final frontier…” will sound better than ever. —Extreme Makeover: Star Trek Edition (Yahoo!)
Hmm… I’m not sure I’m too happy with this. I’m not about to get worked up and nostalgic about it, or anything, because I can see the marketing thinking behind it.
Star Trek actually featured very briefly in a dream I had last night. When I woke up this morning, my PDA was within reach, so I wrote it all down with an eye to putting it on my blog, but that will have to wait until I have some free time.
(When I first read the headline, I thought perhaps some Trek nerd would get the chance to overhaul his apartment — perhaps in his parent’s basement — to look like the bridge of the Enterprise.)
