Just forget the words and sing along

Well, this just wouldn't be my blog unless I shared the latest and greatest in the world of Star Trek.

First, the bad news. It's been learned that, in order to make it to a fourth season, Enterprise had to cut its budget in half. Each episode used to cost $1.7 million. Now, they have to do it for just $800,000. Let's wait and see if it affects quality....

Now, the good news! We've known for a while now that the long-awaited, 2-disc super-special edition of Star Trek Generations comes out on September 7. Now, at long last, we get the list of bonus stuff! Here's what all we'll get:

- Text commentary by Michael and Denise Okuda (natch)
- Running commentary by Ronald D. Moore and Brannon Braga (the writers of Generations)

And tons of featurettes. The one I'm looking forward to is the one dedicated to the film's signature special effects piece: the crash of the Enterprise-D.

And, you get four cut scenes. The one cut scene that everyone is looking forward to is Kirk's original and more controversial death. Can't wait!

And now, I'd like to go sleepy

Next Issue...Mark Trek
