The recently announced box set Star Trek: Alternate Realities Fan Collective will have a surprising twist when it arrives from Paramount.
Like previous Fan Collectives, the set will come with various themed episodes from the five Trek television series; in this case – alternate realities. But unlike previous sets, this set offers someting… well…. alternate. The episodes from The Original Series (Mirror, Mirror, The Alternative Factor, The Enemy Within and The Turnabout Intruder) will be the newly restored versions created by CBS-Digital with new effects and cleaned up video.
This is not only the first time that a set has included the remastered episodes, but will be the first time The Turnabout Intruder will be available remastered on DVD. The interesting question becomes whether Paramount is planning to phse out the original versions of the series for all future DVD releases.
The set arrives on September 16th.
