Trek Remastered -- "The Doomsday Machine"

Perhaps the most anticipated episode of the Remastered Original Trek is scheduled to air this weekend. "The Doomsday Machine" is a bona fide classic, with the character of Commodore Decker and his obsession with the alien Planet Killer, reminiscent of Moby Dick's Captain Ahab. Aside from the story, two big draws are the scenes of the Constellation and the battles with the Planet Killer. has several images directly from CBS-Digital, and the preview trailer (again, the Quicktime version appears to be better quality, at least for my computer setup). I said the trailer for "Journey to Babel" was the best so far -- until this one. Wow.

The stills are incredible, and the scenes from the trailer are fantastic... If you haven't seen any of the remastered episodes yet, this is the one to start with. A bold claim since I haven't seen it yet, but all the promotional materials look so good.

And next week... Amok Time.
