SCIENCE FICTION TELEVISION

It's "Amok Time" starting February 17, 2007

The half-human Mister Spock (Leonard Nimoy) must return to his homeworld of Vulcan to take a mate, or die, in "Amok Time," a remastered episode of the original Star Trek series, premiering in national syndication during the weekend of February 17, 2007.

Enterprise captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) defies Starfleet orders to take his friend, Spock, to Vulcan. Once there, Kirk finds himself pitted against his friend in mortal combat. Celia Lovsky guest stars as T'Pau, the Vulcan matriarch who presides at Spock's wedding, and Arlene Martel guests as T'Pring, the beautiful Vulcan woman who is destined to become Spock's wife.

The digitally-remastered "Amok Time" features two new visual effects matte paintings. Each shows Spock's homeworld of Vulcan with greater scope and grandeur than was possible when the episode was first produced in 1967. These paintings depict a forbidding desertscape of spectacular beauty, capturing the ancient mysticism of Spock's Vulcan ancestors. Sharp-eyed fans might glimpse the desert city of Shi'Khar in the background of one of the paintings. Shi'Khar, where Spock grew up, was first seen in the 1973 animated Star Trek episode, "Yesteryear." These new shots were produced at CBS Digital, and were painted by matte artist Max Gabl under the direction of visual effects supervisor Niel Wray.

The newly-remastered version of "Amok Time" premieres nationwide during the weekend of February 17, 2007, starring William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk and Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock, with DeForest Kelley as Dr. McCoy. The original episode was first aired in September, 1967 and was written by Theodore Sturgeon and directed by Joseph Pevney. Star Trek was created by Gene Roddenberry. Star Trek remastered is distributed in nationwide syndication by CBS Paramount Television.

Sky bridge. Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy), and McCoy (DeForest Kelley) traverse a stone bridge to a Vulcan mountaintop where Spock must take a wife, or die. The spectacular stone bridge on Spock's homeworld is depicted by an all-new matte painting in the digitally-remastered version of "Amok Time," the Star Trek episode premiering in syndication this weekend.

Arena. An ancient ceremonial arena, located on a mountaintop on planet Vulcan is the setting for Spock's wedding in the digitally-remastered version of "Amok Time," the Star Trek episode premiering in syndication this weekend. In this breathtaking setting, Spock (Leonard Nimoy) must fight his captain for possession of the beautiful - but scheming - T'Pring (Arlene Martel), a fight that can only end when one of them is dead!
