The reasons for the delays in the region 1 ST:TMP DVD seem to be legal and administrative. E.G 1.) Mad as it may seem, Paramount do not have total rights control. Particularly over the theatrical trailer. 2.) A documentary on the making of the movie is being "re-edited" by Paramount exec's because it alledgedly "gives away too much inside info on movie making". More like it shows them up in a bad light. 3.) There is still elements "missing". I.E scenes shot but mysteriously spirited away from their respective archives. Anyway, whatever the truth, it's going to be a while before this one gets sorted and reaches the streets.
