Over at TrekWeb, they've put up some very interesting information - a complete breakdown of the visual effects changes for the 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' DVD:
TrekWeb received info from a source on the CGI/FX community (who shall remain anonymous) about Foundation Imaging reworking and upgrading the FX for the upcoming 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' DVD. What follows is a summary of the reworked scenes, brought to you in cooperation with MediaTrek.com, who scanned the images for us exclusively. We would like to note that there has been some confusion over whether these shots are actually "new FX shots," which they are not; these photos are of the scenes which are to be reworked and restored by Foundation for inclusion on the DVD.
Click here for the actual article. It is currently not know whether the DVD will just feature the new edit, or also the original version - personally I wouldn't mind also seeing the original version, as I was perhaps the only person on the planet who actually thought the incredibly long effects scenes were one of the most enjoyable parts of Star Trek ever.
