Base Set

As part of the 40th Anniversary, CBS Paramount Television began work on a digital remastering of TOS. The changes included new visual special effects, upgraded computer generated ship scenes for the Enterprise, Romulon Warbird and Klingon Bird of Prey, new matte paintings and music. The episodes were also upgraded to High Def. This of course called for new cards showcasing these new effects. Enter TOS Remastered. This 81 card base set is heavy on scenes and ships in their new CGI glory.

Inserts

  • As a surprise, RA released a parallel set to the common set, gold foiled with a soft-touch matte. It takes about a case to make a full set.
  • 18 Tribute cards, continuing the look at actors who have passed away.
  • 9 card Creature set, of popular aliens in TOS.
  • Back when SkyBox was creating their popular TOS I II and III episode set, there were a few actors who hadn’t agreed to be used on cards, so some of the episode cards were created without these iconic characters, such as Charlie and Harry Mudd. Since that time, Rittenhouse was able to acquire the rights to those actor’s images and has redone some of those same episode cards with new images. For TOS Remsatered, RA added images of Elaan of Troyius the 9-card Elaan of Troyius Revised insert set. Following the SkyBox pattern, there are 3 common cards, two character logs, two behind the scenes card, one profile card and one gold plaque card.
  • 9 lenticular cards featuring Star Trek ships in motion.
  • This set featured both single and double autographs, all popular pairings in Trek, such as Spock and Chapel, Chekov and Koenig. All told, there were 15 double and 11 single autograph cards and came 1 double and 1 single autograph card per box.
    Pre-release of the set (as in subject to change, Rittenhouse stated the odds of finding a “The Shatner/Luna and Nimoy/Barrett will be EACH found approx. every 4th case. “
