I did a number of searches in many of the different forums and found no mention of this. If it's a repost, I do apologize.

I was watching my S4 DVDs yesterday and I decided to watch Where No Fan Has Gone Before.

It's always been my understanding that they edit some things out for syndication for time purposes. But last night I noticed that there's something missing from the DVD version.

When the PE ship crashes on Omega III, and they notice all the sets and Nimoy says "So many cardboard sets, so many memories. If only the others..."

Whenever I've seen this on Cartoon Network, Shatner says "I guess that's my cue," before he steps through the portal. On the DVD, this line is never delivered.

Anyone know why?   :confused:

I'm sure he says that on my DVD. I'll have to go check it out.

I believe he does say it on my DVD. Maybe your DVD has an audio problem at that moment. (What region is your DVD?)

Region 1, and I watched it twice to make sure I wasn't hallucinating or something.

The interesting thing is that it's pretty seamless. It's not like we see the portal for too long while that line should be coming. There's no delay between "If only the others..." and Shatner jumping through. It's like it was intentionally cut out. It doesn't skip or hiccup.

I'd appreciate if someone else with a R1 player and DVD would check theirs to see if mine is just a bizarre fluke.

Well, I got very close to my television and I could hear, faintly, Shatner delivering the line in question. I screwed around with the balance and when I turned off something called "Soundimage" - a mysterious feature on my television which appears to do nothing at all - I could hear it fine. Sorry for wasting anyone's time. Although if you watched WNFHGB because of me, you saw a fine episode of Futurama.

Wasn't there two captions that were edited out from the Season 1 DVD? The "Condemned By The Space Pope" one and "As Seen On TV"...

Why was that again?

For these sound issues, it's happened to me before, most notably on Spanish Fry.  I think my audio system was set weird and a lot of Bender's background "Whoo!" lines weren't very audible (same with the CN version in fact).  I don't know why this was but it hasn't happened since.

The one actual change, which of course they mention in the commentary, is that "Space Pilot" had the "JFK. Jr. Airport" line changed to "Radio City Mutant Hall".  It only aired with the JFK Jr. version once; he was killed in a plane crash shortly thereafter, so for all the reruns (Fox, and the CN/TBS ones) and the dvd, they use the Mutant Hall one.  The original line is still in the dvd animatic though.

Combien, I don't know what the Region 2 dvds are like, but the region 1 dvds still have those two captions.
