  • A report at Ain't it Cool News on the upcoming special edition 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' DVD has revealed that, not only will it contain no theatrical trailer, but it is currently being revised and re-edited because comments of various former executives "reveal too much internal information" about Paramount's film operations. Thanks go out to Lee Jamilkowski for this!
