STAR TREK REMASTERED returns from Holiday this weekend with THE GALILEO SEVEN. This is the episode in which Spock faces Command challenges when his shuttle craft & cranky crew crash on a planet populated by gigantic cavemen who want to wipe 'em out.
There've been some changes regarding where/when you can watch the next wave of remasters...you can find a link below that'll take you to updated details (stations, airtimes, and whatnot).
First up: a reworked shot of shuttle craft Galileo heading out of the Enterprise to go explore Murasaki 312, a quasar(ish) thingie.
Here's an exterior angle of the shuttle's departure, augmented dramatically from the original sequence (The Original Series never featured an angle remotely similar to this for such sequences).
Next: a rejiggered shot of Galileo in low-orbit of a planet. NOTE the driver...seen through the shuttle's front window. Nice detail.
Finally, here's a lovely shot of the shuttle approaching the Murasaki 312 quasar. I really like the detail in the whirlpool around the sun (sorry I don't know the scientific term for it). There is no counterpart for this shot in the episode's original version.
HERE's a newly updated list of stations carrying the next wave of REMASTERED episodes.
PLEASE NOTE that quite a few alterations have been made to this list; some stations & airtimes have changed altogether. So, if you've been watching these, be sure to check for changes in your area (the airtime shifted in my city by 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).
