The Doomsday Machine

Last weekend Paramount finally aired the digitally retouched Doomsday Machine episode of the original series.

Let me tell you, this episode was worth the wait. Seeing the Enterprise and the battered Constellation take on the stellar menace was breathtaking. Especially now, where the size difference is better stressed.

Best of all, the effects scenes were pretty much done shot-for-shot, true to the original episode. The planet killer still has the same shape (even it's oddly shaped maw), yet now it looks more like something made out of a high tech "pure Nutronium", rather than a bad paper mache model.

After seeing this, I can't wait for episodes like The Immunity Syndrome or The Enterprise Incident.
