Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Standard Orbit 247: The Scooby-Doo Ending

The Nicholas Meyer Director's Cuts.

As Leonardo da Vinci once said, "Art is never finished, only abandoned." Nicholas Meyer would seem to agree, as he returned to both of the Star Trek films he directed (The Wrath of Khan and The Undiscovered Country) to create alternate director's cut. These re-edits aren't to the extreme that some others films have undergone (Blade Runner, Batman v. Superman, etc.), but make a significant impact on the narratives none the less.

This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore discuss the differences between these alternate versions and their original theatrical counterparts, which versions they find superior, and some of their non-Star Trek, favorite director's cuts. Boldly listen!
