The previous reviewer gives this set a low rating because only the remastered version are available. Maybe he should re-check his discs. Each episode is presented in it's remastered/renewed version which has the new special effects and music AND in their original format with the dodgy FX and music.
This is an incredible set for any Star Trek fan; and a must-own at this ridiculously low price.
I was really excited to get my hands on the complete TOS at an amazingly low price. But when I watched the first few episodes I realized something was not as it should be. I remembered the special effects to be more "homebrewed" than what I saw on my screen now. And the theme song used to have a soprano in it, right?
Then I watched the extra on the first DVD about "Transporting Trek to the 21st century" and it showed how they've "remastered" the complete series by replacing spaceships on strings with CGI and rerecording all the music.
Dear producers: It might look more state of the art now, but it is a series from the 60s and has a right to look like a series from the 60s. The crappy animations and special effects in the original are part of the Star Trek experience. So messing around with it is completely uncalled for.
What made me only give it two stars is the fact that the remastering is mentioned nowhere in the product description. Maybe they thought that would keep trekkies from buying the item. Well, they are right!
