In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the original series of Star Trek, comes a three-disc Blu-ray release featuring previously unseen footage from the show's production and 12 classic episodes, which is due to land on Monday 5 December.
During the shooting of Star Trek, reels and reels of episodic footage were left on the cutting room floor and later preserved in film canisters by the Roddenberry Estate. These alternate takes, deleted scenes, omitted dialogue, out-takes, and original visual FX elements have now been catalogued, transferred and pieced together to be inserted into the two featurettes and a three-part documentary that are at the core of this box-set from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.
The 12 episodes were chosen for their relevance to the vault materials, and are presented here in 1080p High Definition with DTS 7.1 Master Audio and newly-restored original Mono. There are also isolated music tracks on 11 of the episodes, while three contain newly-recorded audio commentaries.
The new documentaries included are:
• Inside The Roddenberry Vault: in which Rod Roddenberry introduces viewers to the discovery of his father’s long-lost Star Trek film reels.
• Star Trek: Revisiting A Classic: a look back at the origins of the iconic series.
• Strange New Worlds: exploring the creation of the classic Star Trek visuals, featuring newly-found original visual effects elements photography.
The Roddenberry Vault on Blu-ray is now available for pre-order on Amazon.
