To celebrate the release of Star Trek: The Original Series – The Roddenberry Vault on Blu-ray on the 5th of December we’re giving three lucky winners the chance to win a copy of the 3 disc Blu-ray!
Fans can dive into the making of pop culture history when Star Trek: The Original Series – The Roddenberry Vault is released. In honor of the show’s 50th Anniversary – this three-disc edition Blu-ray gives fans unprecedented access to never-before-seen footage from the production of Star Trek: The Original Series.
During the shooting of Star Trek, bits and pieces of episodic footage were left on the cutting room floor and later preserved in film canisters by The Roddenberry Estate. This footage now found, has been painstakingly catalogued, transferred, analyzed, and pieced together these Vault materials, which include alternate takes, deleted scenes, omitted dialogue, outtakes, and original visual FX elements.
Star Trek: The Original Series – The Roddenberry Vault includes twelve classic episodes chosen for their relevance to the Vault materials, and presented in 1080p High Definition with both DTS 7.1 Master Audio as well as newly restored original Mono. Eleven of these episodes contain isolated music tracks. Newly recorded audio commentaries appear on three fan-favorite episodes.
Each of the set’s three discs feature documentaries that weave together the previously unseen Vault materials with all-new interviews by key creative and production personnel and famous fans. The three new documentaries exploring the “making of” the celebrated series and its enduring legacy are:
