Star Trek: Lost Scenes
The original Star Trek wasn’t just a landmark science-fiction television show. It wasn’t just the launchpad for a film and television franchise that has lasted fifty years. It was the spark that ignited generations of imaginations, encouraging explorers, scientists, astronauts, and writers into push forward into the final frontier.
But amazingly, a lot of the original footage, particularly cutscenes, b-roll, bloopers, and more, were not saved, ending up in private collections, sold off to diehard fans, or literally tossed into the dumpster by production staff.
That makes the images collected for Star Trek: Lost Scenes all the more remarkable. In these color-corrected and meticulously restored frames, the entire three-season journey of the starship Enterprise comes to life in incredible ways. Production techniques, behind the scenes tricks and revelations, even the actors in their off-time… it’s all assembled here in vivid reproduction for your enjoyment.
Not only that, but they’ve unearthed deleted footage and text from scripts that didn’t make the cut, filling long-pondered plotholes and offering insight into iconic moments from the show.
Star Trek: Lost Scenes is perfect for any lover of the original series, and should be required reading for anyone who enjoys sci-fi or television production.
