A digitally remastered and enhanced version of the original Star Trek episode "The Doomsday Machine" will debut in syndication on Feb. 10, marking a milestone: It features more than 100 all-new digital visual effects shots, the most of any episode in the
The showcase, as far as new visual effects for "The Doomsday Machine" is a new digital alien "planet killer,". CBS Digital created the new version of it, based closely on the one seen in the original episode, but gave it a battered, more real appearance.
The U.S.S. Constellation, a sister ship of the Enterprise, is shown as a shattered hulk nearly destroyed by the doomsday machine. In the new version the hull of the damaged Constellation has been torn open, revealing details of a mangled and damaged interior.
The episode features guest star William Windom as Commodore Matt Decker, commander of the wrecked Constellation. The classic episode was written by Norman Spinrad and won a Hugo Award nomination by the 1968 World Science Fiction Convention. It first aired in October 1967.
Although I have not seen any of these "new" episodes yet, I am eager to. What they did with this one sounds great. The original Star Trek was the best.
