first post so please be kind
With HD DVD on one side of each disc and standard DVD on the other, the series has been remastered from the original camera negative. The 1960s special effects have been replaced with 21st century computer-generated imagery to give new depth and atmosphere to various elements including the main title sequence, the galaxy shots frequently seen from the Enterprises bridge, the battle scenes, planets and alien ships, some of the matte paintings used as backdrops for new worlds, as well as the Enterprise and other Starships, which have been replaced with CGI-created ships.
The new computer-generated Enterprise is based on the exact measurements of the original model (which now resides in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.). The original theme tune by Emmy Award-winning composer Alexander Courage has been re-recorded in digital stereo audio. A digitally remastered version of William Shatners classic original recording of the 38-word "Space, the final frontier" monologue continues to open each episode.
