Stunning! Absolutely Stunning Video! I never thought in a million years that these old TV episodes would reveal so much detail. This is a must have set for any SciFi Fan!
This Set has it all... High definition Video.. DTS Master Audio 7.1 Sound.. BD Live extras... Navigation thru the discs is really a cool task, showing up on the Enterprise screen, with some really neat graphics and sounds. The Video uses VC-1 Compression and the colors are vibrant and detail is crisp, while preserving the 4:3 original ratio.
Audio is presented in 7.1 DTS Master Audio and will thrill the listener, with a superb balance, incorporating use of discrete effects with maximum results. The Intro theme with the Enterprise whisking by will leave you in goose bumps, overall the Sound has been scrubbed and perfected into an amazing soundtrack!
Some of the Special effects in the original series are quite dated and Blu-Ray exploits the old technology, so included in this set is the capability to toggle to more modern cut scenes showing the planets and the orbiting Enterprise. Purist's will appreciate this capability..
I really have to convey to any Star Trek TOS fan, that this 1st season on Blu-ray is essential, it will make you feel like you are watching the series for the first time, with its beautiful 1080P high definition picture and 7.1 DTS MA sound track will leave you with a huge smile!
I love this first set and will purchase the other 4 seasons with relish!
