URGENT MEDIA RELEASE

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA :- Massive news for fans of the worldâ€™s most successful science fiction franchise.
A little over 13 months ago, a dedicated team at CBS Paramount Domestic Television in America took on the massive task of re-mastering the 40 year old original series of Star Trek. Re-mastered from the original 35mm camera negative in high definition the shots have never looked so clean. Visual effects received a new lease on life, utilising the latest in computer technology. And letâ€™s not forget the sound, re-created in Dolby 5.1 surround.
The Original Series has never looked so good.
The overwhelming support from fans meant a cinema release - of the special episode â€œThe Menagerieâ€ - was in order. The huge number of bookings meant the U.S. had to give it a second night screening and expand into in excess of 300 locations.
Then Canada and Europe got an event.
And now Australia has joined the party.
On November 27 â€“ in 9 cinemas across Australia â€“ this special episode will be beamed onto the big screen, with exclusive behind-the-scenes extras.
Details, dates and times available at www.startrekhdevent.info or www.spn.net.au .

"I believe in humanity. We are an incredible species. We're still just a child creature, we're still being nasty to each other, all children go through those phases. We're growing up, we're moving into adolescence now. When we grow up,man,we're going to be something!"Gene Roddenberry 9/4/85
