Does Kirk Still Shoot First?

The original Star Trek series is getting the "special edition" treatment. New CG ships and phasers, populated starbases, and a rerecorded theme song are all planned for the shows return to syndication. I for one am curious about the changes, and optimistic. If Star Wars had merely revamped the effects, I would have been fine with the changes. It was all the tinkering with story elements, most notably making Greedo shoot first, that soured the taste of the "upgrade."

Check out some proof of concept videos here.
