Great news for you aging Trekkies:
Yep, they’re going to go back and adding CGI in place of Sixties FX and a shoestring budget. Remember how every class “M” planet (except for those exactly like 20th century earth) had a flat red atmosphere? Gone.
And here is the best part; it seems like the cheesy Desilu theme music will be kept but improved upon.
No word yet whether the da-ta-da-da-da-da-DA-dot-tot-DA-da hand to hand combat music will be affected.
I have been missing the Original episodes in recent years. When they series was finally taken out of syndication in 1990, I really didn’t care much having seen every episode Eleventy Jillion times. It will be interesting to see them now through the lens of four spin-off series and a buttload of movies.
My only hope is that the stations carrying it wont cut the crap out of the episodes. Remember when only UHF channels would carry it and they would increasingly take out bigger chunks for commerical breaks? Let’s hope the fan base will not stand for that.
Mr. Sulu, take us into orbit.
