Star Trek: The Original Series – Season One Remastered is a combination HD DVD/DVD release of the remastered Original Series – the dual-sided discs contain HD DVD content on one side, standard DVD content on the other. The episodes are presented in airing order, rather than production order, as has been the custom in previous releases.

The size of this package is almost identical to the prior DVD release. The box also contains 5 "Special Collector Data Cards" describing the contents of each disc.

A slimline Region 2 re-release in DVD format was released on 27 April 2009.

Background informationEdit

The menu is a replica of the Transporter room console, a theme repeated throughout all three seasons..

On the HD DVD, the intro has James T. Kirk on the turbolift asking to go to the transporter. Once an episode is selected the transporter controls activate and characters from the episode you chose beam in – "The Menagerie, Part I" has both versions of Christopher Pike appearing.

On the DVD, the intro has four characters of the disk's episodes on the transporter as the camera goes down to the console. Once the episode is selected the camera zooms into the beaming effect. This was repeated for the other DVD sets. The DVD versions are on the discs in Enhanced Definition 480p/24p.

Followup ReleasesEdit

The second and third seasons of the remastered version of Star Trek: The Original Series were originally announced for release in 2008 on the same combination HD DVD/DVD format as the first season.

Season two was set for a 25 March 2008 release. However, in early December 2007, it was removed from the schedule, and was tentatively rescheduled for the summer of 2008. [1]

With Toshiba announcing their withdrawal from the HD DVD market on 19 February 2008, these releases were canceled completely. [2]

Seasons two and three eventually saw release on DVD. In 2009 Season 1 was re-released as a DVD only edition.
