I just watched a video about some of the work that went into the Star Trek Season One HD-DVD. It was pretty interesting that the soundtrack was re-recorded and some effects, such as the Enterprise orbiting a planet, were recreated to add more realism.
Measurements were taken of the model of the U.S.S. Enterprise from the Smithsonian, so that the Enterprise could be recreated digitally and shown in never-seen-before angles.
Star Trek Season One HD-DVD/DVD combo is scheduled to be released on November 20, 2007, but it is available for pre-order now. Yes, you read that right. This will be a combo set that won’t leave standard-def DVD users out in the cold.
The videos can be seen here.
