Is there any way of seeing the original Star Treks without the modern computer graphics? Sure, it's nice they've gone to the effort to dress it up by modernizing some of the cheesier effects, but what if I want to see just how cheesy those original effects were, one more time?

Wikipedia says you can pick up the Blu-rays, which let you choose if you want the new effects or the original effects. Alternatively, if you can find them, you can pick up the first DVD release of the series, as this was prior to the remastering.

  • i assumed that any DVDs currently available would be the remastered ones. will have to figure out how to tell them apart. – JustJeff Oct 9 '11 at 2:54

    @JustJeff Take a look at the 'first DVD release' link. That's what the first DVDs look like. The new ones have a clear 'Remastered Edition' label that you can see by clicking the link under 'Other Formats & Versions'. – user1027 Oct 9 '11 at 3:52

    I can attest to being able to see the original on Blu-ray. – PearsonArtPhoto Oct 9 '11 at 4:13

    @JustJeff: “i assumed that any DVDs currently available would be the remastered ones” — thankfully, Lucas is the exception, rather than the rule. – Paul D. Waite Sep 3 '15 at 11:53
