Alternate pilot for Original Star Trek heading out way

Posted by LiveFor on November 15, 2009

The DVD release of Star Trek: The Original Series – Season 3 includes a pilot episode only previously available as a bootleg.

The alternate version is in three parts with 1970s-style act breaks, an entirely different version of Captain James T. Kirk’s opening monologue (“But now a new task. A probe out into where no man has gone before”) and music that contrasts from the famous opening theme and an extended action sequence.

“When we first discovered the original film print existed, we jumped at the chance to give STAR TREK fans the opportunity to add this never aired pilot to their collections,” said Ken Ross, executive vice president and general manager of CBS Home Entertainment. “It will be a real treat for fans to see and hear how it all could have begun.”

From the (press) release: This version of “Where No Man Has Gone Before” was completed in 1965 and features archived footage that was not included in the pilot episode ultimately broadcasted. Never-before-aired, this newly recovered version is believed to be what was originally screened for NBC, and the basis for their decision to broadcast STAR TREK®. …

Khan – Mantra, war cry? You decide

Posted by LiveFor on June 2, 2009

Last week Machine Project in Echo Park showed Daniel Martinco‘s “15-minute meticulously re-spliced creation in a never-ending loop that transforms a moment” from Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan “into one of anguish (or snickering for the the audience) into a meditation, maybe even a mantra. This below clip “doesn’t begin to do justice to the size, sound and hypnotic power of the real thing.” — from an LA Weekly piece that appeared last Thursday.

How would Shatner have appeared in J.J. Abrams Star Trek?

Posted by LiveFor on May 12, 2009

As we all know, William Shatner turned down the chance to have a cameo in the new Star Trek film as he didn’t think it was a big enough part for him. Fair enough. That’s his opinion, but it may have been a mistake on his part.

io9 spoke to the Star Trek writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and asked them about how Shatner’s Kirk would have appeared in the film. There may be spoilers ahead.

Orci: We wrote it, it was in the script.

Kurtzman: The very last scene when Spock and Spock meet each other, finally. And elder Spock is convincing young Spock that he couldn’t interfere, because it would have diverted [Kirk and Spock] away from their friendship. And that their friendship is the key to the whole sort of shebang.

Orci: He gave him a recorded message from Kirk.

Kurtzman: He [elder Spock] said, “Don’t take my word for it.” And he handed him [younger Spock] a little holographic device and it projected Shatner. It was basically a Happy Birthday wish knowing that Spock was going to go off to Romulus, and Kirk would probably be dead by the time…

Orci: It turned into a voiceover, at the end of the movie.

Kurtzman: So It was a nod too, but it ultimately felt like a cameo, in a way that wasn’t.

Would Shatner’s appearance have added to the film?
