      When it was first announced that the original Star Trek was going to be treated to a special effects update, I was excited. Sure, I liked the show for its characters, stories, and music, but the special effects play an important role, too.

      To me, the special effects can either enhance the story or take away from it - and admittedly, watching Star Trek with cartoon-like and toy-like special effects did hamper my enjoyment of the


      show.

      Now though, with improved special effects, I’m enjoying these episodes in a whole new way! The Enterprise itself is gorgeous and there are so many little details brought out by the new special effects that were difficult or impossible to see before.

      Alien vessels no longer move awkwardly across space - now the movements flow nice and naturally, like a real ship would really move in space.

      Colored paintings that were originally used to show ...


      • a city or a structure on an alien would are replaced with CGI and now I actually feel like I’m about to step foot on an alien world! All the enhancements are just terrific and I like how the team responsible for this didn’t get carried away - they didn’t add anything new.

        The shots are simply redone, so the episode’s don’t run longer or require new music for new scenes.

        While something like that would

        have been nice to see for a bit, it would have destroyed the flow of the episodes and it would have looked awkward to have all these new continuous CGI shots without any new dialogue or new interior shots to accompany the new CGI scenes, so I’m glad they didn’t take that route.

        Still, it’s a real treat to see the original Star Trek receive such a caring and careful makeover - the show has never looked better!
