This is an HD recreation of the director’s cut of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. It’s primarily sourced from the HDTV, which uses the same transfer as the director’s cut DVD. While the HDTV is low detail and has lots of compression, it does have more grain and better contrast than the Blu-ray. The unique footage from the director’s cut DVD is upscaled. I have included most of the new CGI shots that had no existing equivalent (or needed changes like the new Vulcan shots). However, I mostly used the original versions of the shots that were altered for the director’s cut to preserve HD quality (for this reason I’m calling it a fan edit). I also recreated a couple of the director’s cut changes in HD.

Track 1: FLAC - This is the same 5.1 as the DVD (lossy sourced), but I replaced the end credits music that was looped for the director’s cut and replaced it with the original cue from the remastered CD.
Track 2: AC3 - 2.0 Dolby Surround from the DVD.
Track 3: AC3 - The commentary from the DVD.
Track 4: AC3 - This is a commentary originally released as a podcast for startrek.com with the director’s cut production team leads.
