To Boldly Redo What Some Man Had Done Before

In 2003, Paramount proposed redoing the special effects for the original "Star Trek" series and rereleasing the episodes as "Star Trek Enhanced". Two CGI firms redid the effects for the teaser, the opening credits and title, and the first two acts of The Doomsday Machine as a proof-of-concept with no changes to the acting or the story. Paramount ultimately decided not to pursue the project, but it's interesting to see how two different CGI firms handled the transporter, phasers, and starship effects.

Please Stand By

We've spoken previously of test patterns, almost all of which have been replaced with the ubiquitous Bars & Tones of color and digital broadcasting. But like me, you may have wondered: who created the original Indian Native American Head Test Pattern, what happened to the original artwork, and what did it look like up close? Since test patterns were broadcast with analog equipment onto the primitive CRT screens of yore, only a few people have seen a clear and crisp image of what is arguably the most famous test pattern of all time. That is, until now.
