I just mailed two VHS copies to you.

Let me know when you get them.

Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth.  That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

I am soooo looking forward to seeing these HD beauties on my large screen. I'm gonna have a Star Trek Movie Festival for about 15 people in the Home Theater, I believe...

I'd be interested in a comparison of the HDDVD and Blu-Ray version of the season 1 TOS set. Obviously the audio won't compare well, but the video would be an interesting one I'd think......

I suspect they will be virtually (no pun intended) identical...as the master for both will be the same, and the output for both is 1080p.

The audio is supposedly the only "enhancement" over the HD DVD version.

I read somewhere that while the remastered episodes are still 4:3 (as they should be) that some new scenes (like a view of Vulcan from a distance) were also rendered in 16x9 for Japan. It'd be cool to get those as extras or seamless-branching on the Blu ray as well... but I've seen nothing that would indicate it to be so.

That is correct for Star Trek, the Original Series (TOS) - it was filmed in 4:3 and will always be 4:3.

Except a very few of the effects shots that were enhanced for the HD DVD version were done in 16x9 and those are included 'in place' (seamlessly branched in) when you play back the episodes from the T.O.S. season 1 HD DVD set.

Meaning that as you watch the episode you see 4x3 with some framing and 'additional content' on the sides of the screen to help use all of the available 16x9 screen width, and for a precious few shots you see a 16x9 image where new effects were done. As soon as the effect shot is done, back to 4x3 which is what the main content was done as.

As noted it was framed (during filming) for 4x3, and that won't be changed.
