If you’re a longtime visitor to TrekCore, you know how obsessed we are with the many deleted scenes from Star Trek production history, from our unveiling of the TNG deleted scenes that influenced the Next Generation Blu-ray sets to the uncovering of the at-the-time unseen Star Trek Into Darkness cut footage.
Now, thanks to the team behind StarTrekHistory.com — David Tilotta and Curt McAloney — and our friends at publisher Titan Books, we’re about to get a huge archive of newly-revealed and professionally restored Star Trek: The Original Series cut frames and sequences detailed in a brand new book coming this summer: Star Trek Lost Scenes.
Here’s Titan Books’ original preview information in 2016.
