Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
The sounds, the look, and all-new digital effects that hold close to the spirit of the original are all here in the critically acclaimed "Remastered" editions of the classic Star Trek series of the 1960s. Available in their full-length, original format without the cuts of syndicated television, the vivid Remastered versions make Star Trek new again, without compromising what made the show a pioneer of modern, continuing-character science fiction. In the first chapter of the television series that started a cultural phenomenon, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy project the best of humanity into the 23rd century with compassion, boldness, and a curiosity to meet the unknown. For more than 40 years viewers hungry for optimism have found inspiration from Gene Roddenberry's visionary allegory, hooked on the thought-provoking morality tales, the humor, the romance, the philosophy, and the inspired gadgetry aboard the first U.S.S. Enterprise.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoAmok Time||The classic tale of Spock's feverish Vulcan mating urge and mortal combat with Kirk features a host of new artwork for the Remastered edition that adds vistas of the hot planet never before seen on a television scale. The high-elevation nature of the pon farr ceremonial grounds echoes the landscapes of Vulcan of the later motion pictures, but only enhances the mood and the music of the classic tragic battle set up by Spock's manipulating childhood fiancé, T'Pring. Sharp-eyed fans will note the distant views of Spock's hometown -- an homage to artwork later used in "Star Trek: Enterprise" -- and a new setting for T'Pring's girlhood photo.||50:29||$3.49||View in iTunes|

|3||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Changeling||The Enterprise encounters a probe named Nomad.||50:28||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|4||HDClosed CaptioningVideoMirror, Mirror||The Star Trek "mirror universe" conjures up images of Spock's goatee, the captain's woman and dress daggers -- but the Remastered edition adds a few more touches as well. The routine landing party beam-up is snagged by a new smeary ion storm effect for Kirk, Scotty, McCoy and Uhura's entry into the savage parallel universe. New visuals especially enhance the cruelty of this dimension, with the agonizer and the agony booth both getting a creepier, more visceral CGI treatment. The "mirror" Kirk finds he has a sexy "captain's woman" and a "Tantalus field," that ruthless secret death machine he can turn on anyone remotely -- but will he ever get his people back home?||50:30||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|5||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Apple||The crew discovers a paradise controlled by computer.||50:28||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|6||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Doomsday Machine||The Remastered edition brings an incredibly rich look to the biggest visual-effects episode of the original series, not only improving the visuals but clarifying the most active starship battle depicted in the 1960s. Investigating the loss of sister starship Constellation, the Enterprise stumbles across a huge alien superweapon that wrecked not only the lost ship but also entire planets in several solar systems -- and drove Commodore Matt Decker into a "Ahab complex" that threatens the Enterprise when he forcibly takes command. Now, see the sad wreckage of the Constellation in all-new detail, get a truer sense of scale with both starships, their shuttlecraft and the planet-killer, which gets an articulated treatment that truly enhances its robot-like mission of destruction. Remastered effects also let viewers truly see for the first time the choreography of the battle with each starship's strafing runs -- and there's even a new angle on the shuttlecraft departure.||50:32||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|7||HDClosed CaptioningVideoCat's Paw||Two alien scouts take form as a warlock and a witch/giant cat to oppose Kirk's crew, tapping into dark human icons that get the full Remastered treatment. Their landscape of Halloween and the paranormal now gets a full "dark castle" facade as well as clean-ups and tweaks everywhere. While struggling to discover the source of the pair's apparent transformational powers, Kirk wonders whether one alien's attraction to him is any more dangerous than the widening dispute between the two.||50:30||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|8||HDClosed CaptioningVideoI, Mudd||The return of conman Harry Mudd is not a heavy tale of obvious visual effects, but the Remastered edition gives this romp a beautiful new version of a ringed world for Mudd's Planet. Among the 500 androids who turned on Mudd is leader Norman, the Enterprise hijacker, and here his "android circuitry" and belly hatch are another highlight of the Remastered redos. Mudd teams up with Kirk and even Spock and the staff, of course, for a wacky show of illogic -- their only available weapon for escape.||50:28||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|9||HDClosed CaptioningVideoMetamorphosis||The shuttlecraft Galileo makes a forced landing on a world with a single human inhabitant.||50:28||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|10||HDClosed CaptioningVideoJourney to Babel||One of Star Trek's classic tales sports our first look at Spock's parents, Andorians and Tellarites, Federation debate, terrorist raiders and covert assassins -- and the Remastered edition brings its special snap to all. With one envoy murdered and Spock's father Sarek the chief suspect until he has a heart attack, it takes a ruse by Kirk and McCoy to get the stubborn Spock into Sickbay to give blood for his father's surgery after Kirk is stabbed and unable to command. The Remastered version features an all-new detailed shuttlecraft landing in the hangar bay and the Orion spy ship, faithful to the original but finally seen in detail -- as well as the Enterprise phaser tracking system which tries to shoot it down.||50:28||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|11||HDClosed CaptioningVideoFriday's Child||A simple mission to secure mining rights with the nomads of Capella IV turns upside down when Kirk's party learns a Klingon agent has beaten them to the punch and sponsors a coup that overthrows the old ruler. When his pregnant wife is set to die as well, Kirk kidnaps her against her will in their escape attempt, and he, Spock and McCoy stay on the run long enough for the Capellans to realize the Klingons' deceit and change course. The young son, born amid both danger and humor, is restored to the throne and gets a special name, thanks to the Enterprise officers.||50:40||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|12||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Deadly Years||Accelerated aging affects the senior officers and threatens Kirk's ability to lead.||50:26||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|13||HDClosed CaptioningVideoObsession||Kirk is determined to hunt down a vampiric entity he failed to destroy in his past.||50:27||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|14||HDClosed CaptioningVideoWolf in the Fold||The mood and atmosphere can only be enhanced by the Remastered process when shore leave on hospitable Argelius II turns deadly: Scotty's ladyfriend is found stabbed in an alley and he is found holding the knife over her. Incredibly, Spock's research, witnesses, and two more murdered women eventually point to the murderer as the entity behind the original serial killer, Earth's "Jack the Ripper." The new vibrant look of the Remastered treatment is at its best as always, but be sure to look for the lights of cities on the planet's dark side, matching how the live action of the story all takes place at night.||50:28||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|15||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Trouble With Tribbles||Partly inspired by the work of the 1996 Deep Space Nine homage episode, "Trials and Tribble-ations," this Remastered edition sports an all-new Klingon D-7 ship, the reworked Enterprise CGI model debut and close-up details of Space Station K-7 in this classic Star Trek comedy. Klingons, poisoned grain, a loud-mouth Federation bureaucrat and a mealy-mouthed trader -- and his fuzzy, faceless heroes the tribbles -- are here in all their crisp, clear Remastered glory.||50:33||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|16||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Gamesters of Triskelion||Three disembodied beings wager on fights staged by prisoners abducted from around the galaxy.||50:27||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|17||HDClosed CaptioningVideoA Piece of the Action||Star Trek's other tongue-in-cheek romp gets a more realistic planet look from space in the Remastered edition, as Kirk attempts to undo the unintended contamination of Sigma Iotia II a century earlier yields a mobster-like culture like 1920s Chicago. It's a perfect example of the reason for the Prime Directive of non-interference, but Kirk, with an incredulous McCoy and "Spock-o" in tow, decides the best way to heal the damage is to play the part of mobsters themselves -- even if it means learning to drive a car. Along with its crisper, more colorful look overall, the Remastered edition also features a new treatment for the one time we see ship-fired phasers on stun.||50:29||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|18||HDClosed CaptioningVideoThe Immunity Syndrome||One of the most bizarre and colorful episodes of Season 2 is a showcase for the Remastered edition, with an all-new 3-D approach to the giant spacegoing amoeba that dominates the story. The lifeform is not sentient but still deadly on a mass scale, consuming the Gamma 7A system, the Vulcan-manned USS Intrepid and anything in its path while draining nearby power sources. The Remastered look now gives Enterprise a true "nighttime" treatment while within the "zone of darkness" around the amoeba, and both Spock's shuttlecraft suicide mission and the starship itself now seem truly trapped within the amoeba in a host of more complex and scaled environments.||50:29||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|19||HDClosed CaptioningVideoA Private Little War||The Klingons provide arms to a peaceful planet and disrupt the balance of power.||50:30||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|20||HDClosed CaptioningVideoReturn to Tomorrow||Telepathic aliens take over Kirk and Spock's bodies.||50:30||$3.49||View in iTunes|
|21||HDClosed CaptioningVideoPatterns of Force||The crisp Remastered treatment only heightens the irony and cruelty of an all-new Nazi world set up on Ekos, discovered by a shocked Enterprise crew sent to check on missing historian John Gill. Gill's misguided experiments have tragically gone wrong, and Kirk's group is finally rescued from capture and torture by contacts in the Ekosian underground.||50:27||$3.49||View in iTunes|

...season 1 Star Trek got its legs,season 3 they got a producer who didn t get the show,but season 2 was perfect.Thats a big word to say ,but if you love sci fi adventure then nothing is better then season 2 of Star Trek.
Not Ready Yet
I was waiting for season 2 and was delighted to see it available in HD and purchased it as soon as I saw it available on 9-MAY-2011. There was a problem in that the HD versions were not correctly identifed causing duplicate names in the TV listings where the second one downloaded was named by appending a 1 to it. I opened a ticket with the iTunes store about this and they have started an investagation. They also refunded my purchase on 11-MAY-2011 while they look into this. (Thanks!)
As anyone who has purchased HD TV shows from iTunes knows they include both the HD and SD versions that only get listed once in the TV listings where you can choose to play the HD version on your computer while the SD version gets synced to your iPod. A very good design and implementation that is missing from this season.
Once this problem is fixed I will be repurchashing this season as well as the other two seasons.
Thanks to the iTunes support for permitting me to reverse this purchase until a future time.
A "Must Have" For Star Trek Fans
A "must have" for Star Trek fans. The digital remastering work is focused primarily on Enterprise and planet fly-bys, viewing screen content on the bridge, and some glass paintings and mats for large scenes (e.g., a landing part beaming down to an immense city-scape of ruins). They stay true to the spirit of the original series, while taking advantage of the latest CGI effects. The remastering also repaired scratches and other flaws from the original negatives, and boosted contrast to make the show look its best.
If you loved Star Trek the first time around, then you'll love the digitally remastered edition all over again.
