Buy these babies up people. Take excellent care of them, fall on hard times, and then sell it to me for a discounted price.

I want one!

It's good to know the original version are included, not just the "lucasizing" editions.

 Two pieces of Star Trek trivia some may not know:

1. Star Trek almost never got made, until when it was pitched to Desilu studios, when the sign offs went straight up to the top management, aka Lucille Ball, she thought by the title, it was about Hollywood stars "treking" around getting into misadventures and thought it sounded great, so she greenlighted it. Good think she never read the synopsis!

2. The Botany Bay was used in Star Wars Episode II. If you look at the string of space traffic in Coruscant space in the background of Jedi temple scenes, one of the ships is repeated constantly, its profile unmistakenly the Botany Bay!

The remastered versions are "Lucasized" as all in my opinion.  If anything they used CG to enhance what was already there.  No re-imagining for the most part.  In fact, in most instances the shots are exactly the same, just made prettier.  Nothing was changed or reinvisioned to bettter the story, the action scenes/space scenes are exactly the same, the ship moves exactly the same except instead of orbiting a blob of green, it actually looks like a planet.  They didn't reinvent any characters to look different, it's the exact same only touched up to give it new life.  And remastering in HD doesn't hurt anything.  But calling the remastering "Lucasizing" is ludicrous!

I have all 3 seasons on the re-mastered DVD.  There is a special feature that shows them re-mastering the episodes and why they did it.  They even re-recorded the opening theme.  I am a huge Trek fan, and these changes make the episodes far more enjoyable.  They are an enhancment, not the bullshit that Lucas did by ruining Star Wars.  If you want proof, watch the trailers for the episodes, they are original, and not changed, then watched the re-mastered version, and tell me you don't think they did the right thing.  I am thinking of upgrading to the Blu-rays now.

Can't wait until this weekend !!!

actually I meant "lucasizing" in the terms of redoing the special effects, and that's all

I have the digitally remastered editions...that's not what I was referring to.....remastering and enhancing the visuals are different things.....I wanted to be sure the original REMASTERS stayed, not just the new ones with the new stuff

Good point Starlight....me think you other guys are getting confused.   They updated the special effects of the old series.  I've actually caught them from time to time on TV and thought that was a great improvement.  However, if I was a big fan I would be happy they included both versions rather than selling the seperate...cuz you see... THAT'S what Lucas would do.

I'm Netflixing that shit now bitches!   I'm sorry you guys aren't bitches.  But you can stream it through Netflix, though not in HD.
