Trek Remastered -- "The Enterprise Incident"

In this week's Remastered episode, "The Enterprise Incident", Captain Kirk orders the Enterprise into Romulan space unexpectedly, the ship is captured, and Kirk and Spock are held captive aboard their flagship. All according to plan -- they're on a secret mission!

As a kid I often wondered why the Romulans would be using Klingon-designed ships. Fans speculated that there was a Klingon-Romulan alliance, but the truth is more mundane. The Klingon ship model was expensive and the producers wanted to get as much use out of it as possible. The freedom of CG effects has now allowed for a Warbird to make an appearance and bird-of-prey markings on the undersides of the Klingon-designed battle cruisers.

The teaser photos are sweet! I'm looking forward to see what else they enhance in this terrific espionage-themed episode.
