Fan-Edit Info:

Edit and Preservation by FanFiltration

Most of the footage for this version is imported from the Director's Cut DVD set (but this is a major re-ordering and edit of that footage). Much of the footage that was missing from that set has been imported from a letterbox High Definition broadcast version. The original audio track was taken from the long out-of-print laser of the 1983 Special Longer Version.

Video / Audio Sources:

A) Widescreen High-Definition T.V. Broadcast of the 1979 Theatrical Version.

B) Director's Cut DVD {Including bonus out-takes and trims}

C) Laserdisc of 1983 Special Longer Version {Audio Only}

Programs Used: Adobe Premiere / Adobe After Effects / Adobe Encore / DVD Decypter

/ VobEdit / VirtualDub / AudioGrabber / Cool Edit Pro

Computer: HP Media Center PC m7760n

EXTRAS: Rare audio interviews with cast members and the producer, and Production Stills,

This fan made preservation attempts to reconstruct the extended Network TV and pan-and-scan home video versions of the film made in 1983. But, for the first time is presented in a letterbox format.

Here is a list of the footage that was added to the theatrical version to create the 1983 "Special Longer Version".

* Decker asks Sulu to take Ilia "in hand". He then gives her a brief explanation of the computer. Ilia reminds Sulu of her celibacy oath, and Decker tells Ilia "the captain didn't mean anything personally", and Ilia says she'd never take advantage of a sexually immature species.
* After the wormhole, and after Decker, Bones, and Kirk depart for quarters, there is another short Sulu/Ilia exchange about current speed and current heading. Ilia then confirms it. Both these scenes were apparently shot to provide a sense of romance between the two, but were cut to clear up Decker's same relation.
* Rather than Kirk saying, "Make your point, Doctor" when discussing the obsession with the Enterprise, there is one brief exchange, and McCoy gives his line in a medium shot, rather than a shot of the two standing side-by-side.
* During the attack on the Enterprise, the ship actually gets hit by an extra energy torpedo. We hear it, and the lighting also suggests it, but we never see it. Some minor scene extensions are added. There is also an alternate take of Spock's analysis.
* There is a short scene in which Spock reveals the frequency of V'Ger's transmission. This appears in the Director's Edition.
* Decker takes over Chekov after his hand is burned, and a female crew member takes over for him. Decker goes to help Spock, and we return to the theatrical footage of the second (or third) energy torpedo being fired.
* Chekov returns to his post after a humorous exchange from Bones, and Spock reveals that V'Ger emits more radiation than the Sun.
* The famous footage of Kirk shadowing Spock during the space walk sequence is included.
* There is an alternate take when Nurse Chapel gives the Ilia-probe Ilia's headband.
* The Ilia-probe mentions the creator is "on the third planet". She then removes the headbands, and asks why two carbon units have entered V'Ger. Bones replies that they wish to contact it. Decker asks if V'Ger has a problem with that, and Ilia says no. V'Ger will find out their purpose. Bones says it is to survive, and Ilia says it's V'Ger's purpose as well to survive. Decker implies that V'Ger's purpose was to find and join with the creator, and Ilia replies that is how V'Ger will survive.
* Bones says V'Ger says its creator is a machine, to which Decker replies "We all create God in our own image".

You should still be able to find the original single disk DVD version of Star Trek II, that is the original theatrical version as far as iI know.
I also thought that there was only one version of III , and it's on all the DVD releases. But, I could be wrong..

I have a plan (and that's all it is at this stage) to do a re-cut and merging of Trek II - IV and remove Robin Curtis as Lt. Savik (She is just some Vulcan in my edit idea and is also not seen much), and also want to place James Horner music under the scenes from IV. but that's all for another time...

i am really looking forward to the widescreen version of the longer tv cut since that is the one i grew up with on vhs instead in fullscreen.

i was born in 1978 so not only was i born to late to see star wars in 1977, i was only a baby and could not see trek 1 in the theaters.

i enjoyed the HD2DVD of the theatrical version so i am interested in seeing your version of the theatrical cut with the real theatrical sound mix. the HD version i beleive has a 5.1 which is not the theatrical version but is strangely similar yet different to the directors cut.


I just wish someone would take this movie and all its deleted scenes to reconstruct alan dean fosters script in thy image the pilot for phase II.

Really? I didnt realise the sound mix wasn't the original. Had I known I'd have done my best to fix that, oh well.

Really looking forward to this project FanFiltration, good luck with it

Guys, I would LOVE and NEED to get a hold of that HD2DVD version.

There are a few shots I am forced to take from the LaserDisc because they are not included anyplace on the Director's Edition DVD.

I am sure that a HD2DVD transfer looks much better.

If anyone can help me out with this project, your assistance shall not go unrewarded!

I have a 60 min. 8mm version of ST:TMP on DVD if you want to include it. For completists only, as the picture is only ok and the sound is rather tinny.

Jamiemark, that 8mm film would be an EXCELLENT addition to the Extras section!

Please send me a Private Message or turn your Private Message option on so we can work something out.

I didn't know that it was different, either. And I'm glad you left it as it was ... :-)

I just can't wait to have the extended cut in DVD quality AND widescreen!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who has contacted me about supplying assistance with this set!

It's very exciting to be constructing this set for everyone to enjoy. Star Trek The Motion Picture did have it's problems, but it remains a true Space Epic production that is stunning to behold.
