From wikipedia :
From September 1 to December 24, 1998, the Sci-Fi Channel broadcast a “Special Edition” of all The Original Series episodes in an expanded 90-minute format hosted by William Shatner. Approximately 3–4 minutes of each episode that had been edited out of the syndicated shows for additional commercial time were restored for the “Special Edition” broadcast. In addition to introductory and post-episode commentary by Shatner, the episodes included interviews with members of the regular production team and cast, writers, guest stars, and critics (titled as “Star Trek Insights”). The episodes were broadcast in the original broadcast sequence, followed by “The Cage” (in a 105-minute segment). (for details on each episode’s original airdate, see List of Star Trek: The Original Series episodes). Leonard Nimoy hosted a second run from December 28, 1998 to March 24, 1999, but not all the episodes were broadcast because the show was abruptly cancelled before completion.
Did anybody from this forum record these “special edition” episodes ? I managed to found some of them on youtube, e.g. on this guy’s channel : http://www.youtube.com/user/potablog but all of the segments are
very, VERY low quality
Is there any chance that somebody of you have recorded the episodes when they were broadcast ? I don’t care about the episodes themselves, the same versions were released on the DVDs which I own, I’m just interested in the documentary segments
