This is a custom DVD of the home video cut of Star Trek VI. The original DVD of the home video cut was non-anamorphic. It was also open matte at 2.00:1.

The 2004 Special Collector's Edition DVD was anamorphic, but also open matte at 2.00:1. Moreover, the mind meld scene was altered to incorporate flashes of the conspirators’ faces, which were accompanied by chimes. A new wide shot of Scotty reading blueprints and a new close-up of Kirk during Valeris’ interrogation were also added.

The 2009 DVD release contained the theatrical cut presented in the film’s original aspect ratio of 2.35:1. As it was based on the Blu-ray transfer, the picture was sharp, but was subject to heavy Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), resulting in waxy faces and a general loss of detail.

Summary of Version 1.0 Changes

• true NTSC anamorphic widescreen, in the film’s original aspect ratio of 2.35:1;
• improved overall video quality;
• true AC-3 5.1;
• the President is briefed on “Operation Retrieve” by Colonel West;
• Scotty inspects each torpedo in the inventory;
• the assassin at the Camp Khitomer conference is revealed to be Colonel West;
• removed the wide shot of Scotty reading blueprints that was added in the Special Collector’s Edition
• removed the new close-up of Kirk during Valeris’ interrogation
• the original audio mix of Martia’s death scream is restored;
• the excessive purple tint is gone from the Rura Penthe escape scenes.

Summary of Version 2.0 Changes

• The various transfers have been better intergrated;
• The slight difference in color timing between shots in the mild meld scene has gone;
• improved framing for a number of shots;
• better quality footage has been used for the approach to Rura Penthe;
• the quality of the video encoding is higher.

Thanks go to Rogue-theX for providing support and additional cover art

That is a pretty ace cover for it up above.

This preservation, for lack of a better term, is the bee's knees. I am extremely happy and satisfied with it.
