The remastered version of “Tomorrow is Yesterday,” Star Trek’s first real time-travel episode, premieres in nationwide syndication during the weekend of May 5, 2007. The episode, written by D.C. Fontana, features Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and the crew of the Starship Enterprise accidentally thrown back to Earth in the 1960s, where the ship is spotted as a UFO.

The remastered episode features all-new digital visual effects of the Starship Enterprise flying low in Earth’s atmosphere, and in Earth orbit. Both scenes make use of NASA photography taken from the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station for realism that was not possible back in the 1960s, when the episode was first produced. Another dramatic visual effects sequence shows the Starship Enterprise flying dangerously close to the sun, as Kirk takes his ship on a risky maneuver in hopes of returning his crew to the 23rd century.

The remastered version of “Tomorrow is yesterday” premieres nationwide during the weekend of May 5, 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 January, 1967 and was written by D.C. Fontana and directed by Michael O’Herlihy. Star Trek was created by Gene Roddenberry. Star Trek remastered is distributed in nationwide syndication by CBS Paramount Television.

Earth Orbit: Uses high-definition video of the Earth as photographed from a NASA Space Shuttle as the background for this shot of the good ship Enterprise around her homeworld, albeit in the wrong century.

Approaching the Sun: Shows the Enterprise diving dangerously close to the sun, part of Kirk’s desperate gamble to employ a “slingshot effect” to return the Enterprise to her own time.
