I bought this set and watched the 6 movies and at times thought things were missing. then during the Undiscovered Country i noticed a missing Scene where the attempted assassin is revealed to not be Klingon. dose any one know what was up with that? it is in my vhs version.

The Blu-Ray edition is the original theatrical version, which has never been released on home video before. The "Scooby Doo" ending where the mask is pulled off to reveal Colonel West was not in the theatrical version presumably because that character's earlier scene was also cut. I'm referring to a scene where Colonel West (Rene Auberjonois) presents a foolhardy plan to rescue Kirk & McCoy to the Federation President. I think I prefer the original theatrical version because the latest DVD version also added visual cues when Valeris names the conspirators (i.e. when she says "Admiral Cartwright," an image of him flashes on the screen, as if the audience was too dumb to remember who that was). Plus the "Scooby Doo" ending is unnecessary because it was just as likely that a Klingon would be the assassin.

There are also minor changes in "Wrath of Khan," mostly slight dialogue changes at certain moments. If you've ever seen the TV version, I believe it features all of the extended bits. The last-released Special Edition DVD from 2002 also includes all extra sequences. Also, a new Director's Cut of "The Motion Picture" came out on DVD back in 2001 which included newly rendered CGI effects and extra scenes. This version is not in the Blu-Ray set allegedly because the CGI was not rendered in HD. Presumably Paramount is waiting to release these versions at a later date to make a few more bucks.

Ah thank you i was wondering about weather it was a directors cut difference but the vhs case didn't say anything thanks for explaining.

I prefer the dramatic pacing of the theatrical version of The Wrath of Khan. A good example is the scene where the scientists at Regula One are discussing what to do, after the wormed Chekov has contacted them with "Admiral Kirk's order" to transfer Project Genesis to Reliant is a good example.

In the theatrical version, that scene ends with one of the young scientists saying "But what about Reliant? She's on her way." In the director's cut the dramatic tension of that as a scene-closing line is totally dissipated by several additional seconds of blather about playing hide-and-seek with Reliant's crew: "That's for us to know and them to figure out."

Either way it would of been nice to get both, or at least have a deleted scene feature.

You'll notice in the Bluray edition of Undiscovered Country that there is a piece of glass in the assassin's neck and his blood is RED where "real" Klingons have Pepto Bismol.
