Never-before-aired 'Star Trek' pilot to be released
The second, "Where No Man Has Gone Before," replaced the actor who played the captain with William Shatner and was more action driven. That pilot had an alternate version which was largely lost and has never aired.
Apparently, a film collector in Germany somehow acquired a print of the alternate version and recently brought it to the attention of CBS/Paramount. CBS is now releasing this version on Blu-ray on Dec. 15.
The alternate version is in three parts with 1970s-style act breaks, an entirely different version of Captain JamesT. Kirk's opening monologue ("But now a new task. A probe out into where no man has gone before") and music that contrasts from the famousopening theme and an extended action sequence.
