Trek Remastered -- "Journey to Babel" this weekend

One of the greatest Classic Trek episodes is on the schedule for this weekend. Besides being a great story in its own right, it's an important "mythology" episode because it expands on Spock's back story with the introduction of Sarek and Amanda, his parents.

Yes, there are people in the observation windows.

Several screenshots have been made public, and it looks like another great effort by CBS-Digital. For budgetary reasons, we never saw a shot of the Enterprise and a shuttlecraft together in the Original Series. Look for a gorgeous shuttle landing sequence with the planet Vulcan in the background.

Take a look at the stills or the trailer (could be the best yet) over at

Update: Really great episode, well worth it. Sadly, the shuttle approach where we see both ships from outside the shuttlebay was cut for time, but it should be on the DVD. See the Review and screenshots and video.
