The Naked Time: Traveling back in time

Traveling back in time

The Enterprise travels back in time (again) as PSI 2000 breaks up. As Temporal Investigations would say, James Kirk was a menace.

For 40 years, Scotty’s phaser wasn’t shooting anything. Now it works like it should.

Horta power eating through rock

The new effects of the Horta eating through rock. The hole forms from the center and smoke is generated by the action.

Devil in the Dark: No New Phasers

No New Phasers hitting horta

Read my lips: No new phasers.

The point of impact may have been re-animated, but it could just be the difference between the quality of the remastered broadcast and the DVD original.

The good Captain Kirk stands against the new 3D backdrop.

Balance of Terror: Firing “phasers” again

Another new shot of the Enterprise firing ‘phasers’ to cripple the Romulans. Unlike the original, this shot shows a close-up of the underside of the saucer.

The blue reflection on the underside of the saucer is pretty cool.

Balance of Terror: Enterprise pursues

enterprise pursues

The Enterprise pursues the Romulans. The CG ship in this sequence looks like something out of a bad video game.

Balance of Terror: Romii or Remus?

romii or remus?

Surprisingly, no changes to the viewscreen display. At the very least, I would have expected Romii (Rom II?) to be changed to Remus.

Captain Kirk even mentions Remus by name in his log entry at the beginning of the episode.
