Crazy Crewmen & iPods...err Ion Pods...On This Weekend's STAR TREK REMASTERED!!
...with a shot from this weekend's episode of STAR TREK REMASTERED. It's "Court Martial". This is the one in which Kirk, through a variety of machinations, is put on trial for jettisoning an Ion Pod from the ship...Lt. Commander Ben Finney (Richard Webb) still in it. 'Cept...if Finney's dead...
There was nothing particularly noteworthy about the Enterprise shots in the original iteration of this episode...pretty much standard angles of the ship orbiting a planet the Starbase is on.
The Remastered team added an angle in which, if one looks very carefully, you can see space suited technicians replacing the Ion Pod previously jettisoned by Kirk. They also added a Starfleet shuttlecraft (I guess that's a Starbase Registry number on its side?)

HERE's a newly updated list of stations carrying the next wave of REMASTERED episodes.
PLEASE NOTE that some stations & airtimes have changed altogether. So, be sure to check for time & station changes in your area (the airtime shifted in my city by one day & several hours).
If you can't find a station near you, they can also be downloaded via iTunes and XBOX Live (where an increasing number of episodes are available in High Definition - the series is not shown in HD by many broadcasters).

Looks beautiful and they have done some beautiful stuff admist alot of meh. But that shuttle looks as big as the whole hanger bay. Way too fuckin big. That's what pisses me off most about this project that it like almost all of Trekhas been done on the cheap and it's inconsistant. Fuckin horseshit!!! ILM or Eden should have been given this remastered project. We should have seen digitally repainted sets, displays on the ship, weapons fire ect. Shatner demands it!!!

...in which all third season episodes are redubbed to eliminateShatner's obvious paunch. Kirk's got a 6-pack now!

They're already done with all of these and they aren't doing more -- in fact, they aren't even going back and fixing up the first few they did that looked...well, not so great. In typical fashion, this was really done on the cheap.<P>Still, I've enjoyed most of it.

perspective. What you don't get from the pic is that the shuttle is a lot closer to the camera than the Enterprise...Hence the size diff. <p> this ep has been available on the season 1 box for a while

Please explain; Quid Pro Quo?? Or are you simply a blind Trek defender no matter how shitty Trek may be. Have you a pair of Worf Pajamas??? Or a Seven of Nine Cockring???

You DO realize the shuttle is like RIGHT in front of the "camera" while the Enterprise is some distance away right?

It is a perspective shot. The shuttle is not over the Enterprise but flying around the nacelle to the bow of the ship. So it is closer and looks large. Once it is seen in motion on screen it will look better.

So I'm afraid I won't be doing any Trekking until the Ori are dealt with.

This episode was an instance of the remastering making the show better in addition to looking better. The ship has supposedly been through an ion storm and gotten pretty battered, but in the original version, the ship looks as pristine as ever because all they could afford to use was the same stock footage from every other episode. In the remastered version, the ship looks pretty rough - scorched in places, lots of weathering, and the big hole in the side where the jettisoned ion pod was. So you get a better sense of the jeopardy and the chaos that was going on when Kirk had to jettison the pod, and thus you buy into the story more.
