Star Trek Tapes – Update

All 7 tapes of preliminary cuts of Star Trek TNG episodes are back online, including Cut 4 of Sins of the Father that I apparently forgot to publish after I sent it to Trek Core some time ago. If YouTube doesn’t allow the video to be played in your country, just contact me and I’ll send you a direct download link. To watch the videos now, visit The Recovered Tapes pages.

Devil’s Due – Cut 6

Devil's Due TapeIt’s been a while since the last release but finally, here is the last of my Star Trek TNG tapes. It is pre-final cut of Devil’s Due, an episode of season 4. It’s 44 minutes long and it contains some extra material compared to the public version of the episode. It’s fun to watch if you enjoy seeing how this kind of TV episodes are made by the studios. It doesn’t have music, sound effects, some scenes are not finished yet, etc…

Evolution – Director’s Cut

Almost a month since the last release, here is yet another Star Trek TNG tape. It is a Director’s Cut of Evolution, the first episode of season 3. It’s 52 minutes long and contains lots of extra material compared to the public version of the episode (good and bad scenes alike). It’s really a must see for any trekkie out there and for others who would like to learn more about how TV episodes are processed and assembled.
