In 1998 the Sci-Fi Channel remastered TOS in picture and sound quality, restored every episode to its original run time (they had been edited down over the years for syndication), and aired them five nights a week in their original broadcast order. But that's not all! They were hosted by William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, as well as featured exclusive interviews with actors, writers and producers from The Original Series!
In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart are joined by creator of the "Star Trek Scifi Channel Special Edition" Facebook group Joe Giannetti to discuss this amazing project, why it was cut short by the Sci-Fi Channel, and how fans are working to preserve this lost chapter of Star Trek history.
