Sweet!  Do you have a link?

Sure. Here's a good place to start:

http://www.partsofsw.com/dscntrl.htm

The switcher in question is a Grass Valley 1600-7K, which was not only a prop but a piece of production equipment as well. They used it to create effects shots which would have otherwise been impossible in 1977.


Bonusfest: although the closeup is a Grass Valley 1600-7K, the wide shot of the weapons control room is actually a steam plant in LA. Here's a photo stream from a blogger who found it: http://goo.gl/HYVKu

Share and Enjoy!

I firmly believe that the only reason Klingons ate raw Gagh is because they didn't have access to garlic and olive oil.

Garlic is not a warrior's seasoning, puny human! The Klingon pallete demands something much stronger! That is why they use pure capsicum!

Qapla'!

Now that I think about it, the only reason Klingons ate Gagh at all is because they didn't have access to calamari.

If Klingons had access to the fried smelts at BC Sushi, they wouldn't miss Gagh at all.

Even though the fried smelts at BC Sushi are no longer alive, and thus don't squirm on one's plate, they are frozen in a deep-fried attitude of agony. Which, when you think about it—or, knowing you, when you don't think about it—is even better than requiring your food to squirm in real time.

After all, do we require Edvard Munch's classic painting The Scream to writhe as we view it? No. And it's famous enough, isn't it? What's more, the fried smelts at BC Sushi are considerably less expensive than Munch's The Scream, even if you follow the customary route of stealing it from a museum, which always ends up being costly—if not necessarily in terms of prison time, then in the inevitable guilt that accompanies the theft of any major artwork, screaming or otherwise.

Come to think of it, let's hope the next Death Star blows up Earth the way they blew up Alderaan. That's probably the only way to get George Lucas to stop changing the films around.

Actually, since Lucas sold out, JJ Abrams is directing the new one so we may have a whole new kind of Star Wars next time around.

Interestingly, there's supposedly also a new Star Trek on it's way, also.  All we need is another round of Galactica and we'll have a whole new '70's.....

but.. there was the new galactica sequel some years ago... but it was more like a soap opera...

The reboot of Galactica only bore a passing resemblance to the original. Totally different show.

You know what I'd like to see? The three original Star Wars films, faithfully remastered to DVD and Blu-Ray, with NOTHING CHANGED.

You might only get even crappier material from disney now. I own a dvd release of Robin Hood, Aristocats and another one. Only watched Robin Hood and while they claim it was remastered, the could only have meant the images. Which they matted to fit 16:9/widescreen. The sound is "remastered" in all the gory analog mono details, you get a lot of vintage noise which was beautifully enhanced with all the power they had on their hands. They did everything to ensure that the compression level stays the same and they did't even dare to mess with the volume. This is a purists dream! You need to turn your receiver up to about 90% in order to understand a single world. Oh, and did I mention that it is mono...

From what I read, the Aristocrats dvd is in the same league and they matted the shit out of the Jungle Book so that sometimes heads are cut of. This is totally ridiculous... and offtopic.

You will probably have heard about the Star Wars Revisited fan edit. I didn't watch it myself but it sounds interesting enough. I still have a Dune fanedit to watch first. More info here: http://bytesizegeek.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/star-wars-revisited/

True fans of Star Wars will simply skip the movies and only watch the Star Wars Christmas Special.

Re: New Star Trek.

Yes, there is a new "Star Trek" movie, "Star Trek: Into Darkness" slated to premiere on May 17, 2013. There's a trailer you can watch over at startrek.com.

Re: Original Star Wars.

I've got the original "Star Wars" trilogy on laserdic. I've also got Star Wars DVDs, but I'm not sure if they're the original or the special edition.

Could always skip Disney and go straight to The Aristrocrats.

AFAIk the  original is only to be found on VHS, dunno about the laserdisc. But from what I read on user comments, there is no untouched DVD release.

I'll have to wire up my laserdisc player and take a look, to be sure, but I'm not surprised that the original movies were never released on DVD.

I may be wrong, but I don't believe there was ever a DVD release of the "original", i.e. human Jabba, etc.
