TOS ? 5 stars!
with modern special effects?
John Holmes Motherfucker
I'm confused. Modern effects? THESE are "modern effects"?
I just saw this episode a couple of weeks ago on Hulu, so I submitted the youtube version without a close examination, but if this is CGI, it's like a remarkable CGI simulation of models. Possible exception? Maybe? The doomsday machine itself?
If this is a remastered version, i suspect that the remastering was mostly hype from CBS. Or maybe it's just been done very tastefully. Whatever the case, I think I'm okay with this.
That's a pretty good way to put it. It is like CGI simulations of models. Whatever for? To appeal to a new audience? So, new audience, was it the old effects that made you prefer baldy and breasty to The One True Captain?
It begs the question why every weapon in the Star Trek universe isn't some warp speed projectile. What the heck would survive a warp 9 collision?

I like it, so I must be the audience. I'm not new; I'm oooooold. I watched Star Trek about 7-8 times a week during the seventies, and when I watch this now, it seems just cleaned up enough so that it feels like the same experience, without the drop into cheapness and datedness that you might expect. For me, it's a nice balance, but I'd be outraged if the originals weren't being released on the same DVDs.

Tactful of you not to mention darky.
I think people from my generation really don't understand when young people complain about shitty cgi, I mean, did you SEE the fucking Gorn? We totally grew up on shit like that. The CGI here isn't totally realistic? Poor babies.
Five for the original material, but I don't think this is how Sweding is supposed to work.
30:00 - proof that the Federation does actually use currency of some kind.
Yeah, you can really pull the wool over people's eyes I guess so they go ahead and do it. It looks great but wtf that's deceptive, if you don't know better-- that is you're very unfamiliar with seeing the show.
I had a Star Trek screensaver in '93 with many sound-clips from this episode in particular... With these a soundboard was made (using a program called "Hypercard") that worked up many people to the point of furious raving lunacy.
I've seen a few episodes with the CGI and I dispute the idea that it looks great. Even the CGI in TNG was better, and it really wrecks the whole experience for me.
The CGI Uhura in the opening scene was damned impressive, but I'm not sure what kind of statement it makes.
She felt off-model somehow, but whatever they did, she's never come across so competent, intelligent, and law-abiding.

Like the Captain's Log that floats in the Captain's toilet, It's Crap.
