I heard a rumor that the classic Star Trek series is going to be rereleased on DVD with enhanced special effects and musical score? Anyone know if there's any truth to this?

Well, it looks like the effects "enhancements" are definitely in the works, but no word yet on a dvd release. But, the outrageous prices of the original series have been dropping quite a bit lately -

The episodes with the new effects are going to air in syndication, starting pretty soon. Years ago there were rumors that they were going to do something like this, I'm glad its happening.

I think its a cool idea and if they did release these enhanced versions on HD-DVD it would be an incentive for me to buy a HD player.

I feel its just stupid. I mean.. the effects are dated as hell, but so is everything else on the show.. are they gonna fix that to?
