Four decades after Capt. Kirk and crew zoomed off at warp speed to "the final frontier," the iconic sci-fi series Star Trek returns to broadcast television this week with an extensive digital face lift.

CBS Paramount Domestic Television, a unit of CBS, is digitally remastering all 79 episodes of the original series to enhance the show's 1960s-era visual effects with 21st-century computer-generated graphics.

It's a stupid, bullshit, pure-money-grab idea.  I'd refuse to watch them.

There was a beautiful cameo in Family Guy the other night.

I just wandered into the TV room and it was playing to the empty room. Funny stuff - specially the bit at the end when the wierd baby tries to pass his brocolli off to the dog.

Sounds like it'll be a *fabulous* disaster.  How could you NOT watch something so delightfully wretched?

I think this is ridiculous. If they are doing this, why not revise the weaker scripts to be more interesting or funny instead? The special effects were NOT the weak point.

I think it validates everything that http://www.starshipexeter.com and the other fan-produced shows have done, based around the original concept.

I'll watch.
