Disc two contains the meat of the extras. Although it is broken down into many small chunks this is essentially a series of interviews both onset at the time of filming and in 2003 retrospectively. They are provided by all concerned, major cast members, director screenwriter, composer, cinematographer etc. etc. They vary in length and interest, but are generally captivating. A particular mention must go to the tributes to DeForest Kelly who died in 1999 of stomach cancer. They are genuine, thoughtful and touching, almost bringing a tear to the eye.
Following the by now well established pattern of even number Trek flicks this is a splendid effort. The movie puts our favourite characters in a distant and dangerous setting but has them dealing with the same moral injustice and prejudice that we still tackle today. Laced with excitement, menace and humour the film provides an enjoyable diversion. The quality of the discs both in sound, picture and extras, is as good as any Trek disc to date. My advice, boldly go to your favourite DVD dealer and add this to your collection.
