Friday, September 01, 2006 'Star Trek' Goes Digital

The original "Star Trek" series is going back into syndication next month, but the show may not look quite the same as fans remember it.

CBS Paramount Domestic Television, which syndicates the series, is remastering the old episodes to include computer-generated effects and re-recorded music, in hopes of offering a vision of the future that doesn't look quite so dated. All 79 episodes of the show will eventually get the digital treatment, with several fan favorites undergoing the retouches first.

I'll have to get back to you on this...

So I'm picturing guys in gold velour fighting guys in cheesy makup, but now with really excellent sound and sfx.
Really, there's only so much you can do with velour.
