On the way back in 2001, Star Trek Fans were happy to receive a copy from the director Star Trek: The Motion Picture, with enhanced visual effects, on DVD. For a film that director Robert Wise originally felt had been rushed into theaters—and certainly had patchy visual effects—the remastered version of the movie was a godsend. Now, more than 20 years later, a trip Fans can cheer once again, as the director’s cut is finally making its way 4K Ultra HD-That’s not all.

What’s especially cool is that this new version of the Director’s Cut will include deleted scenes from the movie that were once thought to be lost forever. “There’s a deleted scene we wanted to get back 20 years ago,” Finn said. StarTrek.com. “This was Elijah and Scotty and Decker in engineering. We found some footage from 20 years ago, but there was no sound, so there was no point in showing the scene. But it’s three or four scenes people wanted to see forever. So we relayed that footage… And we found out [director] Bob [Wise] Dialogue loops to the scene. Now this scene will be included in the physical and other media manifest, because it flew so few of them. And we just found other great key scenes.”
Fans who signed up for streaming service Paramount+ will have their first chance to see this enhanced version, as the remasters will premiere there on April 5, less than a month away, in celebration of Star TrekFirst contact day.
