    been a big Trek fan since I was a kid. seeing these episodes on Blu-ray was a completely new experience. the extras awesome too — although i never switch back and forth to the original – why would you? ive got seasons 1 and 2 and will be getting 3 soon (after tax refund :)

    the quality on these digital remasters is incredible. for being such old content, it looks great on HDTV (of course in square format but who cares!)
