If anyone is wondering why there is a Star Wars Preservation : Laserdisc sources section…

Many years ago, when the first started there were… considerable efforts by some members of the site to provide a quality fan-made release of the unaltered Original Trilogy on a dvd format (for free of course). The best quality source at that time were Laserdisc captures - hence this section…

Back then, not everyone had dvd writers, broadband, hard drives large enough to store the films on, and there were very few file-hosting sites capable of storing such large files, torrent sites were still in their infancy (and so slow)… so a Pay-It-Forward system, via postal services, was the usual means of distributing many fan-made Star Wars projects - all across the world.

Obviously since then, a lot has changed…
