Martin Madden, from a deleted scene in Nemesis

A deleted scene is a filmed segment of a movie or television episode which was removed from the final product for any of a number of various creative reasons. Among the most common reasons for a scene to be deleted are time constraints (a scene could make the film or episode overrun) and narrative pace (a scene could slow down action of the story). In both instances, whole scenes as initially scripted could be taken out, or scenes could be shortened without being entirely removed, in which case the sometimes-used expression "trimmed scene" is the more applicable one.

A deleted scene could also be replaced with another scene, in which case the scene deleted becomes an "alternate scene." A scene may also be merely trimmed down, again either for time or pace. In this latter scenario, the full version of the scene is known as an "extended scene."

In its history of 938 productions, Star Trek has had many scenes removed or entirely replaced. Examples include what would have been the opening sequence for Star Trek Generations – in which Captain James T. Kirk is orbital skydiving – and a scene in Star Trek Nemesis in which Martin Madden replaces William T. Riker as the first officer of the USS Enterprise-E.

When included on/in a home video release, deleted scenes are considered part of the special features of that release.

Examples of deleted scenes[]

Star Trek: The Original Series[]


In the era in which the Original Series was being produced, the commercial added value of legally claiming footage beyond that being featured in the finalized production as shown/aired, such as deleted scenes, outtakes and behind-the-scenes footage, was not recognized by Hollywood in general, but by television in particular, simply because a home video format after-market did not yet exist at that time. As a result, unused footage left on the cutting floor of the editing rooms, was habitually only stored for a very short period of time before being simply discarded altogether. The Original Series was no exception therein were it not for Gene Roddenberry, who did recognize the commercial value of discarded footage, after he had noticed that first generation "Trekkies" scrambled over free give-away film clippings at an early small local convention. [1]

Acting upon the observation, Roddenberry had the editing rooms and vaults of Desilu Studios cleaned out of all such footage during the hiatus between the series' second and third seasons, and had it spliced up for sale through his merchandising company Lincoln Enterprises as either short clippings, or as framed stills, cut from the footage, these selling for US$1 dollar per set of eight. (Inside Star Trek: The Real Story, 1997, pp. 400-401; [2]) Generally believed lost for posterity (because of the cutting up of the footage), the only behind-the-scenes TOS footage that was released to the general public for the next five decades concerned three famed (from outtakes cobbled together) "blooper reels" and behind-the-scenes footage that had privately been shot by William Blackburn, the latter later (i.e., between 2007 and 2009) included as special features on remastered series home video format releases. Unlike Blackburn's footage, the "blooper reels" were part of Roddenberry's "booty", and these he actually commercialized whole, selling them as Super 8 reels. (Star Trek Movie Memories, 1995, pp. 40-41)

Nonetheless, in late 2005, cinematographer Curt McAloney started his hunt for the short clippings for restoration/remastering in order "to create a repository of restored images showing the production aspects of the original Star Trek series. This would include out takes, deleted scenes, close-ups of props, effects scenes and publicity photos […] These behind the scenes aspects of the series should be preserved for posterity before they disappear," as he had put it on an older version of his website. His project and the footage he gained access to enabled McAloney and his co-workers to compile a library of deleted scenes, which was presented on the website and afterwards in their book Star Trek: Lost Scenes, published in 2018. Incidentally, Gerald Gurian had embarked on a similar but otherwise entirely unrelated project, which resulted in him publishing To Boldly Go: Rare Photos from the TOS Soundstage, a three-volume book series, between 2016 and 2017.

In 2007, however, it was discovered that a large part of the Lincoln footage collection was still in existence, after which the plan ripened to have it somehow made available to the general public on a home video format release, slated to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. [3] This eventually led to a three-disc Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault Blu-ray release in 2016; many deleted scenes, including several of the below-listed, were either incorporated into the special features of the release or, in the case of the third season, separately included as a special feature onto their own. The fact that the footage could be seen by the public for the first time after fifty years was, in itself, indicative that Lincoln Enterprises had, to some extent, sold clippings/stills from copies of this footage back in the day, instead of having the actual original footage cut up, but that actually made good business sense at the time – aside from being fortuitous for later generations.


At the beginning of the scene involving Vina acting as an Orion slave girl, the Talosians are seen speaking through a trader and an unnamed Starfleet officer, trying to induce Captain Pike to accept their "gift" of an illusory life as breeding stock. Moments later, Vina threatens another servant who pays too much attention to Pike.
In the scene following, set in the transporter room, Number One reiterates the danger of the rescue mission and its voluntary nature. There was dialogue filmed but cut from the final print where Number One addresses Yeoman Colt. In it, she points out that Colt is new to the USS Enterprise, hinting that the yeoman need not join the landing party. Colt responds by saying that she has been trained as any other member of the crew and that she is Captain Pike's yeoman. (The Making of Star Trek, [4])
An alternative, pre-broadcast edit of this episode exists, which, among other differences, includes a few scenes and extended scenes that were cut for the final broadcast version, including an alternative version of the opening credits that has different narration and music. [5](X)
A scene filmed but cut showed Janice Rand entering Kirk's quarters and giving him a new shirt from the cupboard. Kirk takes it, orders Janice to leave, and calls the bridge to ask Spock about the status of Balok's cube. [6](X)
Another deleted scene featured Sulu, at the helm station on the bridge, telling Kirk (with Harrison and Hadley in the background) about how he, in his childhood, had tried to emulate the facial expressions of Oriental villains in movies about the time of "the Sino-Western trouble." This scene is viewable as part of "Inside the Roddenberry Vault, Part I", a featurette in Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault. In that documentary, Michael Okuda referred to the films that are discussed in the scene as "old Fu Manchu movies," even though Fu Manchu himself isn't specifically referenced in the scene. Okuda further commented, "Today, it might seem a little clumsy, maybe a lot clumsy, but it was a real sincere effort to show a better future […] In retrospect, yeah, it probably was a good idea that they cut that. But it's kind of endearing; you see that Gene [Roddenberry] was trying to show a world without racial stereotypes, and isn't that the world we wanna live in?"
Yet another deleted scene from "The Corbomite Maneuver" was a conversation between Kirk, McCoy and Dave Bailey in a turbolift, as they were on their way to board Balok's pilot vessel. [7](X)
A lengthy scene between Harry Mudd and Uhura, in which Mudd tries to persuade her to take the Venus drug was filmed, but cut due to time. Roger C. Carmel was greatly disappointed that the scene was deleted. (Starlog #127, p. 33; These Are the Voyages: TOS Season One)
A filmed, but deleted shot showed Kirk saluting the Romulan commander before he destroyed his ship. A scene showing the commander and Decius arguing about the Praetor's orders, soon before the centurion died, was also filmed, but cut from the finished episode. [8]
A scene between Anton Karidian and his daughter in their quarters was filmed, but cut due to time. (These Are the Voyages: TOS Season One, 1st ed., p. 296)
Two shorter scenes were also filmed, but cut from the final episode (possibly due to time). In the first, crewmembers are watching the performance of Hamlet on the bridge. In the second, Lenore Karidian is shown resting in sickbay after her mental breakdown. [9]
A scene of Ben Finney meeting his daughter, Jamie, in engineering, after being beaten up by Kirk, and confessing where he damaged the ship's systems was filmed, but cut because of time. It was replaced by a captain's log voiceover, explaining what happened. [10]
A scene involving an interruption in Spock's court martial was filmed. After Security Chief Pitcairn entered the hearing room to announce the arrival of Leonard McCoy and Montgomery Scott, McCoy and Scott hurried into the room. They then reported to the occupants of the room – Kirk, Spock, a crippled Captain Pike, and a Talosian projection of Commodore Mendez – that, by using a spectrograph beam to detect traces of copper salt from Vulcan perspiration, they had managed to determine which of the ship's computer microtapes Spock had affected to lock the Enterprise on a course to Talos IV. [11] The scene was filmed on Monday 17 October 1966. (Star Trek Magazine issue 161, p. 45)
Scripted and filmed but removed from the final cut of the episode was a scene in which the Don Juan robot reached from behind a tree and grabbed Yeoman Tonia Barrows, who was wearing her princess costume and was shocked by the encounter. Protecting her, McCoy then fought off Juan, who fled the area. This incident took place immediately before the arrival of the Black Knight, footage which is shown in the episode. (Star Trek Magazine issue 163, p. 33) An excerpt from this deleted scene was included in the episode's preview. [12]
Some portions of the interrogation scene between Kirk and Colonel Fellini were cut from the finished episode. In one, Fellini asks Kirk if he is an American citizen; in another, Kirk asks the colonel if he beats his wife. (Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault)
A scene featuring Barbara Baldavin as "Yeoman Baker" was filmed, but cut due to time. It featured Marla McGivers and her friend Baker in a corridor near McGivers' quarters, discussing a crewman who wishes to ask Marla out for a date. She tells Baker that she prefers a man who is able to ask out a woman himself. (These Are the Voyages: TOS Season One, 1st ed., p. 451; Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault)
A large portion was cut from the scene which featured Khan and his Augments on board the Botany Bay. Apparently, it was removed due to concerns by NBC Broadcast Standards over the highly revealing outfits worn by Khan's athletic female followers. (These Are the Voyages: TOS Season One, 1st ed., pp. 451-452) This is most likely the reason why Kathy Ahart (Kati) is featured in the end credits, as she probably had a speaking part which was cut.
Another scene cut was McCoy confronting Khan while being held captive in the briefing room, then stunned by one of Khan's henchmen. Khan assures Spock that McCoy has only been stunned, as he wants to avoid bloodshed when possible. To the question of whether he does approve, Spock tells Khan he only approves of the logic with which he took over the Enterprise, which was done "brilliantly." (Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault)
A conversation scene between Anan 7 and Sar 6 in Anan's quarters was filmed, but cut from the episode. [13]
Spock and Leila by the creek, deleted scene

Spock and Leila in a deleted scene

A scene showing Spock and Leila walking and romanticizing by a stream was scripted and filmed, but cut from the finished episode. However, it appears in the episode's preview trailer. [14]
A short scene between McCoy and Leila was deleted. After Kirk beams up, McCoy claims, "A stubborn man that Jimmy-boy is," to which Leila replies, "He will join us. No-one has ever resisted." (Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault)
A portion of Spock's dialogue was deleted, in which he explains to Kirk that the spores communicate with the people they infected telepathically, and that that's how he learned that the pod plants are from the different planet and were not on Omicron Ceti III when the first two, failed expeditions came. (Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault)
A short scene filmed but eventually cut had the Organian elders discussing the situation between the Federation and the Klingons. Ayelborne worries that the conflict might evolve into a full spread war, while Claymare expresses his curiosity in observing "such creatures" and their behavior, which he considers to be a rare chance. (Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault)
A scene filmed but cut for time included Peter Kirk visiting the bridge after his recovery from the alien parasites, wearing a child-sized version of a command division Starfleet uniform with lieutenant stripes, and sitting in the captain's chair. It is also revealed that, instead of moving back to Earth to live with his grandparents, Peter is going to be adopted, by a colleague of his father, and stay on Deneva. After Peter leaves, Scotty tells Kirk that his nephew shall go to Starfleet Academy. Kirk replies that he hopes he won't, not wanting him to face a similar decision like he just had to make. [15]
Another scene that was filmed for "Operation -- Annihilate!" involved Spock, on the surface of Deneva, immediately after having rendered the club-wielding Kartan unconscious with a Vulcan nerve pinch. Kirk reprimanded Spock, via communicator, for the lateness in reporting in, a delay accounted for by the attack, and a spasm of pain then caused Spock to realize that the parasite within him might be in contact with the others of its species. (Star Trek Magazine issue 163, p. 32)
A scene filmed but cut from this episode featured a team of security guards, including Swenson, ready to beam down to Pyris VII, but unable to because of Sylvia's invisible force field surrounding the Enterprise. [16]
A scene filmed but cut had Commissioner Hedford accusing Kirk of faking the hijacking of the shuttlecraft, in order to conceal a navigation error which led them to being diverted to the Gamma Canaris N planetoid. (Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault)
An ending scene on the bridge was filmed, in which McCoy reveals that Carolyn Palamas is pregnant with Apollo's child, asking Kirk, "What will the child be… man or God?" as the closing line of the episode. The scene was removed on the behest of NBC Broadcast Standards. (Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault, These Are the Voyages: TOS Season Two, pp. 105-106) This now-famous scene has survived in James Blish's novelization of the episode, featured in the book Star Trek 7. Also, the character Mark McHenry in Peter David's New Frontier book series is a descendant of Apollo and Carolyn's child.
A short scene, featuring Enterprise crewmembers playing games and being entertained by the Mudd androids, was filmed but cut from the episode. [17] This scene evolved from a scene in Stephen Kandel's original script (deemed unfilmable on the series budget), in which we see the entire crew of the Enterprise at once, being entertained by the androids. (These Are the Voyages: TOS Season Two, pp. 278-279)
A scene of Spock mind melding with Sargon's sphere was filmed but cut from the finished episode. Spock also mentions the meld in the briefing room scene, but this piece of dialogue has also been edited out. (Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault)
Kirk's "risk is our business" speech was also longer, but some parts have been cut from the finished episode. (Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault)
A humorous "tag scene" was filmed but cut from the end of the episode, in which Spock fails to understand why Nurse Chapel claimed it was an overly pleasant experience to share her consciousness with him. Ann Mulhall says Sargon and Thalassa did understand, and Kirk agrees. (Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault)
Spock and Uhura

Spock and Uhura talk in the recreation room

An extended scene was shot in the newly built recreation room for "Elaan of Troyius" that was never aired. In it, Kirk, McCoy and Uhura are first amazed to see Spock tuning a Vulcan lyre, and then impressed to learn that Spock placed second in the all-Vulcan musical competition – Sarek took first prize. Hearing Spock play the lyre, both Uhura and Kirk were struck with an idea for preparing the Dohlman for the impending nuptials.
The course in etiquette was cut short when the Dohlman knifed her teacher, Ambassador Petri, and Kirk was anxious to successfully complete the mission as the Federation High Commissioner was to attend the wedding. In that regard, Kirk asked Spock to play a love song – Spock referred to it as a mating song – that would be piped into the Dohlman's quarters as Kirk resumed the lessons left off by Petri.
The results were less than salutary. The scene continues in Uhura's cabin (which she surrendered to the Dohlman), and Kirk watches in disgust as the Dohlman eats in the manner of Henry VIII. From this point forward, the scene as filmed is shown in the final print, with the exception of the Dohlman's agitated query about "that sickening sound" filtering into the room. Naturally, the music Spock was playing is not part of the soundtrack. The final revised shooting script was completed on 27 May 1968 and the scene was shot on 10 June 1968. [18]
A short scene near the top of the fourth act where Sulu threatens Kirk with a phaser. [19]
Two scenes were filmed but cut from this episode: in the first, Scotty uses McCoy's computer in sickbay to find out how to make Spock ambulatory; in the second, the mechanically moved Spock is brought to the bridge by McCoy and Scotty before the landing party beams down to Sigma Draconis VI. [20]
Also, an ending scene on the bridge (with an apparent pun to end the episode) is present in the final draft script. It is unknown if the scene was filmed and cut from the finished episode or was scrapped entirely. [21](X)
An ending scene, set on the bridge, was filmed but cut due to time. In this scene, Kirk tells Kang that he and his crew will be dropped off on a neutral planet near the Federation-Klingon border. Then, Kirk and Kang debate the issue of the Federation philosophy of peaceful exploration against the Klingons' way of conquest by war, both considering his philosophy to be the better. (These Are the Voyages: TOS Season Three, p. 315)
A scene featuring John Buonomo as an orderly was apparently cut.

Star Trek: The Animated Series[]

  • None listed as of yet.

Star Trek: The Next Generation[]

While "on board" the alien lifeform, tentacles reach out of the wall and grab for Deanna Troi and Riker. The producers decided these special effects looked horrible and removed the scenes from the episode. [22](X)

Wesley birthday

Two deleted scene stills from "Coming of Age"

A scene centering around the birthday of Wesley Crusher was filmed but deleted from the final episode.
Several scenes were filmed but later cut from the episode during editing. These scenes came to light in March 2013, when a Star Trek collector uploaded the contents of an early work print VHS of the episode to the Internet. [23] See the episode page for more information.

A scene, in which Annette and Eric asked Wesley Crusher to accompany them on a holodeck ski trip, involving a conversation in a corridor and dialogue for both guest actors, was removed due to time's sake. Both guest actors appeared briefly in a crowd scene at the end of the episode, but received no credit, nor did they speak. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion? ed., p. ?) A scene which featured Annette in sickbay, after she broke her leg, was also removed from the final aired episode. This scene would have also included a larger part for guest actress Mary McCusker, who played a nurse who treated Annette and was hit by an energy burst from the malfunctioning replicator. [25]
A scene which involved Raymond D. Turner as an Enterprise-D teacher was cut from the aired version. [26]
Two scenes were cut for time, from the episode's final edit, one of which was a secondary interrogation scene showing Admiral Alidar Jarok being questioned. (The Official Star Trek: The Next Generation Magazine issue 20, p. 33)
Brandi Sherwood and Wil Wheaton

Brandi Sherwood and Wil Wheaton in "The High Ground"

A scene was cut from the final version of the episode which included Brandi Sherwood as a command division officer who assisted Wesley Crusher in rescuing his mother. (BRAVO, 1989)
DeSeve was in his quarters, trying to use a replicator to get some coffee. However, he had spent so many years living among Romulans that he had forgotten much of his native language and had difficulty remembering how to actually pronounce the word. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion? ed., p. ?)
A scene where Fajo sends Varria to test Data's sexual abilities (in which Data references his only sexual encounter from TNG: "The Naked Now"). However, Data learns of Fajo's intent, leaving Varria utterly humiliated, which would later fuel her desire to betray Fajo in the climax. [27]
A scene in which Dr. Crusher talks to the wife of Doctor Richard Hill, who doesn't remember her husband. [28]
Several scenes were filmed but later cut from the episode during editing. These scenes came to light in March 2013, when a Star Trek collector uploaded the contents of an early work print VHS of the episode to the Internet. [29] See the episode page for more information.
Scenes 12-14 were cut from the final episode and would have featured a conversation between Worf, Doctor Crusher, and Simon Tarses in sickbay. According to the call sheet from Friday 22 February 1991, it would include 1 5/8 script pages.
Scene 56 was partially cut from the episode. Following a conference regarding the soliton wave, Worf apologizes to Captain Picard regarding being distracted from his duties by his son, Alexander Rozhenko. Picard tells him that he realizes Klingon officers do not permit their children to live with them but that Worf has met many challenges that are at odds with his Klingon heritage. (Included on the TNG Season 5 Blu-ray release.)
Following Lwaxana Troi meeting Minister Campio, there is a continuation of the scene in which she tries to press further to spend time with him to get to know him. She asks him to bear with her until she gets a better grasp of his culture's rules and protocols.
After Alexander Rozhenko leaves his and Worf's quarters without eating dinner, Worf talks with Deanna Troi, he sharing his frustrations with Alexander and her with her mother, Lwaxana. Troi describes how her mother mortified her by disappearing from her sixth birthday party and then appearing dressed up as a Koropian princess carried in a sedan chair by four young men. She says that it's always been as if she's the parent and her mother the child and that there's a saying that grandparents and grandchildren get along so well because they have a common enemy.
Picard interrupts the ceremony between Kamala and Alrik, telling Alrik that he cannot let it go forward. He tells him that this should be fine, as he's really more concerned with trade agreements anyway, and he agrees. The scene then cuts to reveal that this was only a fantasy of Picard's.
A scene involving a morgue attendant, played by Van Epperson, was removed from the final episode. This scene was, according to the script, scene 3.
A scene in which Counselor Deanna Troi visits the quarters of Captain Montgomery Scott, who had been displaced in time, and trying to allay his feelings of discomfort, was removed from the episode for running time reasons. The scene, running for approximately eight minutes, was originally scripted as Act Two, Scene 20. See the episode page for more information.
The opening of scene 24 was deleted. The Iyaaran ambassador Byleth visits Lieutenant Worf in his quarters, telling him that he is late. Worf checks and finds that it is 0500 hours. Byleth states that he told him that he wanted to meet at this time to tour the arboretum and biolabs. Worf replies that he does not recall this and Byleth asks if he is calling him a liar. Worf replies that he simply does not remember the conversation. Byleth states that he will have to add this to his list of Worf's inadequacies, then tells Worf to get dressed and meet in the arboretum. Worf sighs in exasperation. (Included on the TNG Season 7 Blu-ray release.)
Scene 44 was partially cut. After Data explains the theory of alternate quantum realities, he postulates an example in which, in an alternate reality, Captain Riker chose to sit at the other end of the table, and another in which he might be standing. Beverly Crusher then states that, at that very moment, there are an infinite number of Enterprises and infinite number of her having the same discussion. Data agrees, but states that on some of those Enterprises, there might not be a Doctor Crusher. (Included on the TNG Season 7 Blu-ray release.)
Scene 1 was partially cut. Beverly Crusher's eulogy to her grandmother Felisa Howard was longer and made a mention of her favorite hobby being cooking and having fond memories of being in her kitchen, surrounded by the sounds of bubbling pots and wooden spoons, exotic tastes and smells. She continues that Felisa was in the middle of writing a cookbook when she died and reads off a recipe for "Nana's Gingerbread". (Included on the TNG Season 7 Blu-ray release.)
Scene 9 was partially cut. Following the funeral, Crusher and Deanna Troi have a much more extensive chat. Crusher comments that she'd forgotten how much Nana was loved. Troi asks if she came home often and she replies that, after she moved to Earth and married Jack, she didn't seem to get home very much. (Included on the TNG Season 7 Blu-ray release.)
Scene 19 was partially cut. After telling Crusher that the Howard house is haunted, Ned Quint warns her not to smile at him. He tells her that Felisa Howard smiled at his warning also. He states that she may fly around the galaxy in a starship and thinks she's smarter than the rest of them. She replies that she never said anything like it and he counters that she was thinking it, that he's just an old man with tales of ghosts and goblins. He tells her that he was born in the real Kilmarnock on Earth and saw things out on the moors at night that could not be explained by tricorders or fancy ships. She tells him that she grew up in the house and loves it. He replies that Felisa did too, and now she's dead. She asks if he's telling her that her grandmother didn't die of natural causes. (Included on the TNG Season 7 Blu-ray release.)
Data asks for the origin of the name given to him by Gia, "Jayden". She explains that it's from a story about a boy named Jayden who looked different from everyone else, and the other children were mean to him and made fun of him. Jayden never got angry and he turned out to actually be a handsome nobleman who had been put under a demon's spell. (Included in the TNG Season 7 Blu-ray release)
A Ten Forward scene featuring Riker, La Forge, and Troi was cut out of the beginning of this episode. In this deleted scene, the three of them were speaking of the rogue comet that came in contact with the Enterprise in 2370. Riker is a little annoyed when he receives a snack and drink which he did not order. Troi takes a bit of the snacks, and she likes it. La Forge scans the drink and discovers it to be blood. Riker wants to talk to the bartender, but La Forge insists that it might not be his fault.
A scene with Troi going into her quarters and beginning her bath session in her on-duty uniform was cut out of this episode.

Martha Hackett as Captain Androna

A scene including Martha Hackett as Terrellian pilot Androna, who appeared in the Devron system, was filmed but cut from the aired version. The costume worn by Hackett was sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction, on eBay. [30]

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine[]

A scene in the script that was filmed but eventually deleted featured Sisko meeting with Kai Opaka for a second time, so as to return the Orb. He tells her that fourteen planets have contacted the Federation to open trade links through Bajoran space. He tries to tell her he believes the Prophets to be wormhole aliens, but she tells him she does not wish to hear. Opaka tells him, "That is why a disbeliever was destined to seek them – one should never look into the eyes of one's own gods." (In the first season finale "In the Hands of the Prophets", Vedek Winn, speaking to Commander Sisko, quotes this line from the deleted scene.) Opaka also tells Sisko that his journey is only just beginning. Rick Berman commented, "There's a wonderful scene where Sisko goes back down to Bajor to return the Orb to Kai Opaka that we took out. Cutting is horrible, especially when it's something so close to you as the pilot was." (Captains' Logs Supplemental - The Unauthorized Guide to the New Trek Voyages)
A scene featuring a conversation between Sisko, in his office aboard DS9, and an official at a university on Earth was also cut. (The Making of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, p. xiv)
A scene involving Dukat, Odo, and Vaatrik Pallra was excised. "The greatest regret I have about that show," stated Michael Piller, "is that I allowed Rick [Berman] to take out one scene that would have really made it better. That was a scene where Odo, having just talked to Kira, was going to see Pallra and he sees Gul Dukat coming out of her room and he kisses her good-bye, indicating that they just had sex. When Dukat walks away, we go around the corner where Odo was and there is now a picture that is crooked. Gul Dukat straightens it out and walks on, and then Odo goes to see Pallra. If we had left that in, that would have suggested that Gul Dukat, a red herring, might have also been involved in the murder and was involved in covering it up somehow. That would have been an interesting additional element for people to be thinking about during the course of the show. I have never been as sorry about cutting something out as I feel about that." (Captains' Logs Supplemental - The Unauthorized Guide to the New Trek Voyages, p. 65) The kiss between Gul Dukat and Pallra was Dukat actor Marc Alaimo's favorite moment from about the first season and a half of DS9. "It's interesting to me that after all of my years as an actor that I finally got my first screen kiss as a Cardassian," he remarked. "Nobody else could give two damns about it, probably, but it was really interesting and exciting for me, especially because I was doing it as a Cardassian [....] I have tried to instill a little bit of softness into him, a little playfulness, especially in ['Necessary Evil'] because the thought of getting a kiss was thrilling to him." (The Official Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Magazine issue 6, p. 50)
A scene was filmed for this episode with O'Brien singing "The Minstrel Boy" while being chased on the runabout, an allusion to the TNG episode "The Wounded", where he says it is his "happy thought" song for bad situations. However, due to a continuity slip that wasn't noticed until the last minute, the scene was removed. The mistake involved the name of the pursuing runabout, which is referred to as the USS Rio Grande. However, the Rio Grande was the runabout being chased. The pursuing ship was actually the USS Mekong. This mistake wasn't noticed until writer Paul Robert Coyle was sent a copy of the shooting script, which is only sent out after an episode is completed. By the time the mistake was spotted, it was too late to sort it out, so the scene was simply removed. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion, p. ?)
An ultimately deleted scene was scripted to involve Jake Sisko accidentally walking in on his father, Benjamin Sisko, and Kasidy Yates, while they were in bed together. As the actors and Director LeVar Burton considered that too disrespectful, they did the scene without the involvement of Jake. However, the scene was thereafter edited out of the episode, to avoid its running time being too long. "We were all very disappointed about that because of the thought and consideration that went into putting it together," stated Kasidy Yates actress Penny Johnson. (TV Zone, Special #29, p. 32)
A couple of scenes needed to be deleted from this episode, so that the installment wouldn't be too long. (Cinefantastique, Vol. 29, No. 6/7, p. 29)
The relationships between Kira, Dukat, and Damar were further explored in a scene filmed but cut for time. After Kira calls Dukat an interstellar tyrant, Dukat retorts that he prefers the term "despot". Dukat proposes to assign Damar to escort Ziyal to the opening of her exhibit. Kira points out that "He's a self-righteous sycophant who despises everything Bajoran," and notes that Damar sneers whenever he says "Bajoran". Dukat denies this just as Damar walks in, giving a report and sneering whenever Bajorans are mentioned. Kira can't help but laugh. Damar glares at Kira, but continues his report and leaves. Dukat then imitates Damar, causing Dukat and Kira to laugh together. The script for this episode, including the deleted scene, can be viewed here. The scene also appears in the novelization of this episode.
Ron Moore commented, "You may argue that we should've cut more from the Worf/Alexander story, but if you look at the show objectively you'll see that there's not a lot of extra material in that story to chop." (AOL chat, 1997)
The teaser as shot for this episode was different from the opening scene that aired, but it had to be cut for timing reasons. Originally, the episode opens in Kira's quarters, with Kira and Jadzia Dax looking at Ziyal's paintings. Dax points out that Kira still misses Ziyal, to which Kira answers, "I'll get over it. Death and I are old friends." Dax then suggests that Kira bring Death to dinner. They get up and leave the room, and the scene then picks up in the corridor as seen in the finished episode. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion, p. 509)
A scene was shot in which we see Sarina untie Julian Bashir, and actually speak to him, but the scene was cut for time. [31] "The episode was long, so we were looking for cuts," noted René Echevarria. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion, p. 514)
A scene cut from this episode saw Sisko, Worf, Garak, and O'Brien selecting a Cardassian target to attack. The Torg'Q system was the first to be suggested by Worf, as it was the closest system along the border to Cardassia Prime; however, it was also the most heavily fortified. One advantage of this fact was that the Dominion would never expect an attack there, but the disadvantage was that the element of surprise might not last long, resulting in heavy casualties. The Ventani system was the second target, chosen by Garak, because Ventani II was the birthplace of Tret Akleen, the father of the Cardassian Empire. Garak suggested that such a loss of sacred ground would be devastating to the Cardassians and a great propaganda victory. Disadvantages of this target were that the system had little strategic value, and its loss would have no effect on the Jem'Hadar. O'Brien finally chose the Chin'toka system, because he had noticed that sensor scans of the warp signatures from the Dominion fleet stationed there were slightly different (and almost "too synchronized") than previous scans, suggesting that they were fake signatures. [32]
A deleted scene from this episode involved Quark sitting at the bar and lamenting his failure with Ezri, and Jake attempting to cheer him up by making him a drink. The scene would have gone between the scene where Quark hears Ezri talking about Kor and thinks she is talking about Worf, and the scene where he confronts her about her feelings. In the scene, as Quark pours out his heart to Jake, Jake is getting flustered because he is trying to concentrate on making the drink, but Quark keeps distracting him, and he keeps getting it wrong, pouring it out and having to start again. The scene was cut for time. ((AOL chat, 1998); Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion, p. 623)
Two scenes were shot for this episode but didn't make it into the final cut because the episode was otherwise too long. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion, p. 688) Rene Auberjonois commented about the deleted footage. (Cinefantastique, Vol. 32, Nos. 4/5, pp. 39 & 40) Both scenes can be found in the script:
Kira tells Kasidy Yates that, even though her father wasn't a religious man, he attended services because he loved her mother, and she was religious.
Kasidy surprises Sisko, during a Bajoran blessing ceremony, and concludes the ceremony for him. [33]
Ronald D. Moore revealed that, in a deleted scene, cut for time, "Ezri asked Worf what it was like to stand at the pinnacle of the Empire for a moment and Worf said he remembered wishing his father had been there to see it." [34] The script of that deleted scene can be retrieved at the Italian Star Trek database HyperTrek. [35] See also Star Trek: The Magazine Volume 1, Issue 20 (p. 89).
In a deleted scene from this episode, Kira Nerys, Damar, and Garak get drunk in Enabran Tain's basement. The tail end of the sequence is still in the episode, seen when Kira is lying down, playing with an empty bottle. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion, p. 694)

Some moments from the filming of the scene can be observed in the VOY Season 1 DVD special feature Cast Reflections: Season One.
A scene cut from this episode's teaser features Captain Kathryn Janeway participating in a Gothic-era holonovel. (A Vision of the Future - Star Trek: Voyager, pp. 10-12, 18-20, et al.) The same scene was ultimately included in the teaser of "Cathexis", with minor differences from "Eye of the Needle"'s shooting script.
In a scene deleted from this episode, Harry Kim practices clarinet in his quarters but, to Tom Paris, he bemoans the area's lack of soundproofing. The scene was to begin the episode and was filmed on the first day of the episode's production, before being cut. Despite being removed from "Death Wish", the scene was later incorporated into "The Thaw".
A scene cut from this episode was to have addressed the break-up of the relationship between Neelix and Kes (which occurs in "Warlord"). The scene was cut for time. (Star Trek: Voyager Companion, p. 159) ("Voyager Time Capsule: Kes", VOY Season 3 DVD special feature)
Scene 46 and 46A were filmed on Thursday 13 November 1997 at Paramount Stage 9. According to the call sheet, scene 46A was the scene in which the Entharan magistrate, played by Adrian Sparks, was beamed aboard Voyager. Besides Kate Mulgrew, Tim Russ, Robert Picardo, and Michael Horton, this scene would've also featured Ethan Phillips as Neelix who is absent from the rest of the episode as well as his stand-in J. Boyd. Also present is background actress Donna Morgan as "Transporter Tech.". Scene 46 would feature a conversation between Kate Mulgrew and Adrian Sparks in a corridor. Background performers in this scene who passed both actors would've include Christina Rydell, Peter Harmyk, and M. Johnson.
A scene deleted from this episode features the Delaney sisters at a champagne reception, wearing the teal blue sciences uniform. A still from this scene was used for early publicity for the episode.
According to a deleted scene at the very end of the episode, the scene cuts back to an image Abaddon facing the camera, giving his introduction to the screen, before cutting to his voice over while the camera pans his junkyard "...until it finds "Alice," battered and rusting much as we first saw her." The episode fades out "off the unsettling image of the little ship waiting for its next owner..."
A scene in which Kaitlin Hopkins impersonates Seven of Nine was deleted due to length. [36]
In a deleted scene, a female member of Kelis' species who portrayed a Klingon acted in the ancient Greek theater. (This character was played by actress Carissa Hernandez and her dialogue and scenes were removed from the episode.)

They speak about their adventures and, thereafter keeping the discussion between herself and Chakotay, Admiral Janeway is pleased he has found romance with Seven of Nine. Chakotay is at first surprised to discover the admiral is aware of the relationship. He is reticent to discuss it in the company of his captain but eventually admits to the admiral, privately, that his relationship with Seven is going "great." (Star Trek Magazine issue 121, p. 78)

Also in this scene are background performers Dawn Drake and Glen Hambly. The scene was later included in the ENT Season 1 DVD.
The destruction of an Enolian transport, a visual effects sequence featuring a fiery explosion, was filmed but excised from the episode.

(Beyond the Final Frontier, p. 378)
Jim Lau, The Expanse

Tommy, the maitre d' of a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown, part of a deleted scene from "The Expanse"

Star Trek: Discovery[]

T'Kuvma and L'Rell in deleted scene

Filming this deleted scene extension

A deleted scene extension showed T'Kuvma, after lighting his bat'leth on fire in an alcove aboard his ship, say something to L'Rell and then walk past her, carrying his lit bat'leth in his hand. Although footage of T'Kuvma setting his bat'leth aflame is included at the start of a montage in the final version of the episode, his walk past L'Rell was cut. (AT: "O Discovery, Where Art Thou?") David Mack stated about the episode, "They cut an entire character, they cut half of a scene." [37]
Saru makes an entry in the acting captain's personal log of the USS Discovery.
An extended version of the scene in which Saru learns of what happened to Paul Stamets was filmed.
Saru tells the crew of the Discovery that they did a job well-done and they applaud. The scene then continues with what was seen in the episode, in which Saru initiates and then cancels a performance review. This and the other two scenes are available on the home-video release.
Following Michael Burnham's killing herself, Lorca, Sylvia Tilly and Paul Stamets discuss this having been her plan in order to get Harry Mudd to reset time. Lorca and Tilly note that if it works, they'll never know, though Stamets says that he will. They count down how much time is remaining before it will no longer be possible for Mudd to reset time. The scene ends as in the broadcast episode, with Mudd resetting time. This scene is available on the home-video release.
Part of an "interrogation" scene in which L'Rell and Admiral Katrina Cornwell meet was removed. (AT: "Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum") Cornwell actress Jayne Brook explained, "What the audience didn't get to see, we had much more together happening when she came to interrogate me. There was a great moment, that got edited out, where she's circling me to interrogate me and I use my psychology background. She's trying to threaten me, and I say to her, basically, 'You don't have markings of House Kor. You don't speak the language. And you would've killed me already. So, I don't buy any of these threats. Who are you?' That kind of propels L'Rell into saying, 'I want to defect.' In the end, they didn't really need the full scene and they just kept the wanting to defect part." [38]
A short scene extension was cut from the end of a scene in which Stamets and Tilly, dining together in the USS Discovery's mess hall, discuss how using the starship's spore drive is having an impact on Stamets' mental health but also that he is adamant not to tell Dr. Culber about that issue. Recalling the deleted footage, Tilly actress Mary Wiseman explained, "Culber walks in, and then, like, Tilly has a conniption, 'cause she immediately cannot keep a secret. That's something that I was playing. It was, like, the first sign I got that maybe I don't have to keep it anymore. I was like, 'Phew, this is the secret.'" Wiseman also theorized that the "little scenelet," as she referred to it, was edited out because there wasn't time for it to remain in the episode. (AT: "Into the Forest I Go")
A scene described as being from a treaty signing ceremony in a hall with the United Federation of Planets logo, said to be shot at Vaughan City Hall (also used in other scenes from the episode). L'Rell, Dennas and what appeared to be Ujilli were the three Klingons present, while on the Starfleet side were Gorch, Shukar, and an an unidentified Human admiral. A still from this scene was included in a slide show presented at a Discovery panel at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto in 2018. [39]

Star Trek films[]

Star Trek: The Motion Picture[]

  • The ending of the scene in which Kirk first visits the bridge was cut from the theatrical release, but restored in the 1983 television version and the director's cut. It features the Rhaandarite ensign complaining about Captain Decker being removed from command, to which Uhura replies, "our chances of coming back from this mission in one piece may have just doubled".
  • A short scene in which Decker asks Sulu to "take care of" Lieutenant Ilia (e.g. show her the navigation console), and Sulu acting a bit clumsy was cut from the theatrical release, but restored in the 1983 TV version (then again cut from the director's edition).
  • The beginning of the scene in which Doctor McCoy is beamed aboard the Enterprise, featuring a yeoman telling Kirk that "He insisted we go first, sir. Said something about first seeing how it scrambled our molecules." was cut from the theatrical version, but was restored in the television version and the director's cut.
  • After Chekov injured his hand, a scene showed Ilia healing him telepathically, watched by the astonished Doctor Chapel, who was called to the bridge to take care of his injuries. The theatrical version omitted this scene and only showed Chapel finishing up spraying Chekov's hand. The 1983 TV version and the director's cut restored the full scene.
  • A short scene of Kirk putting on his spacesuit to go after Spock was cut from the theatrical version, restored in the television cut and again deleted from the director's edition.
  • Originally Kirk also followed Spock on his spacewalk inside the memory cores of V'ger aka "The Memory Wall" sequence, however this scene was left unfinished (mostly because there had been no time to finish the required visual effects for the scene) and cut from the finished film, but it was, with the with the exposed primary hull studio set scaffolding, featured in the television version and its derivative home video formats as an extension of the above-mentioned Kirk following Spock sequence, which in effect constituted a continuity error because it was Spock seen exiting the Enterprise, not Kirk, and who had been wearing two differently colored (orange and white) EVA suits in each of his two sequences. Intended for completion with a matte painting originally, it was ultimately finished digitally for the 2022 release of the Star Trek: The Motion Picture - The Director's Edition Complete Adventure 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release.
  • A scene in which Kirk calls Scotty in engineering to prepare for the self-destruct the Enterprise if he orders so. A female engineer asks Scotty why the Captain ordered self-destruction. Scotty answers that he is hoping that the destruction of their ship would also destroy V'ger. This scene was cut from the theatrical version, but was restored in the 1983 television cut and the director's edition.
  • During the voyage to V'ger, Kirk and McCoy stunningly discover Spock, sitting at his station, crying a single teardrop. Asking if it is for them, Spock answers, it's for V'ger, then explains that V'ger is full of questions, but cannot find the answer. This scene was cut from the theatrical version, but was restored in the television cut and the director's edition.
  • A scene in which V'ger's probe "zaps" a security officer on the bridge was filmed but cut from every release of the film so far.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan[]

  • Many scenes involving the character of Peter Preston, including those which reveal him to be the nephew of Montgomery Scott. Some of these scenes were re-added for the director's edition.

In this scene, credited actress Katherine Blum – as the Vulcan child – released herself from her father and went to Spock, performed the Vulcan salute, and said "Live long and prosper, Spock."

George Takei described the scenario as, "We shot three nights, very expensive, with hundreds of extras on location at Occidental College. After the Bird of Prey lands, the crew comes down the ramp bearing Spock's body. Then, there's a fleeting glimpse of all the Vulcans. The next scene shows us entering the temple with Dame Judith Anderson. This was a sequence of pageantry, of spectacle, of color, and an opportunity to present this awesome society we call the Vulcan civilization–the religious hierarchy, the aristocrats, the merchant classes, all the gold and silver vestal virgins." He continued, "I was absolutely aghast when I saw that the sequence was cut out. I'm told that the front office wanted to maintain the relentless pace. The sequence did have an elegiac quality to it, but it was stunning and very highly paced, visually." (Starlog #109, August 1986, p. 16)

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home[]

  • A scene which was originally filmed to give the character Hikaru Sulu a look at his great-grandfather whom he met as a young boy while in a backstreet of San Francisco was excluded from the final movie. The boy who was cast to portray Sulu's ancestor was so unsettled by his mother, who was also on set that day, that producer Harve Bennett decided to cut this scene because of the unacceptable acting ability of the boy. (Trekworld, June 1999) The scene is present in the novelization of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home .
  • A short scene between Sarek and Christine Chapel, set before the first Federation Council scene was filmed, but cut from the final film. Sarek arrives to the council chambers, escorted by Chapel, hoping he's not too late to testify in behalf of Kirk and his crew. Chapel tells him that things are not going well.

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier[]

Mount Rushmore 2287

Mount Rushmore, from a deleted scene in Star Trek V.

  • A short scene in which Sybok and his followers ride to Paradise City was cut. In the scene, Sybok extends his hand, saying "Behold Paradise!". (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (Special Edition) DVD)
  • The scene in which Caithlin Dar first meets St. John Talbot and General Korrd was originally much longer. Talbot asked Dar what terrible crime she's committed to get exiled to Nimbus III, to which she replies that she actually volunteered for the post. Talbot then tries to explain to the idealist Dar that Nimbus III has been a failed experiment from the beginning, while Korrd makes remarks about Romulan women in Klingon language. Demanding translation, Dar learns Korrd wants her to open up her blouse, to which she tells the drunken general "the only Klingon expression she knows", to which Korrd (in English) replies: "Screw you too!" Both Talbot and Dar are surprised that he actually knows English. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (Special Edition) DVD)
  • The original ending of the scene in which Sulu and Chekov are lost in the woods implied that they are actually at Mount Rushmore National Memorial, to which a fifth President's face (a black woman) has been added. A matte painting of this shot has been created, however it ended up cut from the final film. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (Special Edition) DVD)
Rock Man 4

The Rock Man

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country[]

  • A scene in which Colonel West proposes Operation Retrieve to the Federation President and a later scene in which the Klingon assassin is revealed to be West in disguise. They were restored for the VHS, LaserDisc and pre-2009 DVD releases of the film (but omitted again on post-2009 DVD and Blu-ray releases).
  • A scene in which Spock, Valeris, and Scott discuss the whereabouts of Kirk and McCoy, (and Scott claims, referring to Azetbur: "I'll bet that Klingon bitch killed her father!") was also cut from the theatrical release, but was restored for the VHS and DVD releases (but omitted again on the Blu-ray release).
  • An alternate take of the USS Enterprise-A's communication with the USS Excelsior where Sulu begins by saying "This is Captain Sulu, USS Excelsior."
  • An extension of the Enterprise's approach to Khitomer where Kirk orders all hands to battle stations. (citation needededit)

Star Trek Generations[]


James T. Kirk parachutes to Earth after orbital skydiving in an alternate opening to Star Trek Generations

In addition to the alternate opening, there are many cuts to the movie, including:

  • A scene after Harriman, Montgomery Scott, and Chekov discover that deflector control has been destroyed aboard the USS Enterprise-B where Ensign Sulu tries to use the ship's sensors to locate Kirk and Chekov laments that he never thought Kirk's life would end the way it appears to. Scott reminds Chekov that "all things end, laddie" while Harriman orders the ship home.
  • A short trim on the holodeck scene where Dr. Crusher asks Geordi La Forge if the holodeck safety protocols are on-line just before Worf attempts to jump for the hat.
  • An alternate take of Data pushing Beverly Crusher into the water, where Worf shoots Riker a dirty look after climbing back aboard and Dr. Crusher refuses Data's help.
  • A short trim on the Ten Forward scene where after asking for more of the disgusting drink from Frocas III, Data takes another sip and is again revolted, effectively ruining the joke.
  • An alternate take of Data's emotional seizure aboard the Amargosa observatory where he experiences many more emotions, including one with an obvious sexual overtone.
  • A scene after Dr. Soran orders the Klingon ship to the Veridian system where a Klingon officer brings La Forge's unconscious body to the bridge where Dr. Soran has him brought with him for interrogation. The scene then shifts to the USS Enterprise-D where Worf and Riker discover that the Bird-of-Prey belongs to Lursa and B'Etor and find Data being examined in sick-bay by Dr. Crusher who tells them that the emotion chip has been fused into his neural net and cannot be removed. A frame from this sequence was included in both the adult and children's novelizations of Star Trek Generations written by J.M. Dillard and John Vornholt, respectively. Data expresses concern for La Forge's safety while Dr. Crusher briefs Riker and Worf on Dr. Soran. This scene was later referenced by Captain Picard in a log entry in the final cut.
  • The "La Forge Torture" scene where Dr. Soran uses a Borg nanoprobe to stop La Forge's heart, causing him agony. Soran interrogates La Forge for information on how much the Enterprise-D crew have figured out of his plans and if Guinan has told the crew about him. On the DVD commentary, it is stated that Soran's line about La Forge's "heart just wasn't in it" is a reference to this scene. Later, Dr. Crusher mentions that she removed the nanoprobe.
  • A short scene where Lursa and B'Etor spy on La Forge taking a bath. This scene was referenced later in the final cut where B'Etor complains that La Forge is the only Starfleet engineer who doesn't go to engineering.
  • A short scene where Dr. Crusher leads her patients and staff out of sickbay in preparation for the saucer separation.
  • Various shots of Dr. Crusher and La Forge leading their parties to safe locations while crewmembers remove all breakables from high altitudes in preparation for the crash.
  • An alternate take of the crash sequence where Picard's family album is knocked off his desk in the ready room as the crash begins. As the ship skids along the surface of the planet, Worf breaks open the equipment locker on the bridge and tosses Data a palm beacon as he tries to protect Counselor Troi at the helm. Meanwhile, Worf props another injured crewmember into Riker's chair.
  • An alternate take of the Picard family Christmas where the children present him with a sextant (which Thomas Picard refers to as a "sack-tent.")
  • An alternate take of Picard convincing Kirk to join him on Veridian III where Kirk compares the Nexus to orbital skydiving; exciting at first, but, ultimately empty. Kirk also realizes that Spock's advice of taking on such a mission would be illogical is correct.
  • An alternate climax where Kirk takes many of the falls that Dr. Soran takes in the final cut. After Kirk retrieves the PADD, he quips "The 24th century isn't so tough" just before Dr. Soran shoots him in the back with a hidden phaser in his boot. As he dies, Picard sets the solar probe to explode too early, foiling Soran's plans. Soran rushes Picard, who grabs Soran's phaser and kills him, while Kirk dies without saying a word.
  • A scene where La Forge and Worf rescue Picard in the shuttlecraft Hawking. Picard notices the damage to the shuttle and asks if the Klingons had given them any trouble, to which La Forge replies "You could say that."
  • A scene where Dr. Crusher and Nurse Ogawa sort through the shattered remains of the sickbay where Crusher wonders if she should take a stretcher herself, due to the exhaustion of treating so many patients. (citation needededit)

Star Trek: First Contact[]

Buster, Dixon Hill program

A picture from the deleted scene

  • A short scene cut from the film happened on the holodeck, when a drunk named Buster grabbed for Lily Sloane's arm and was pushed back. [44]
  • In another scene, Zefram Cochrane – reluctant to make the first flight of the prototype warp ship Phoenix – was chased by officers from the USS Enterprise-E and became trapped at the edge of a cliff. As he was about to jump to his death (thereby committing suicide), Troi had to climb onto the cliff and try to persuade him to come back down. She eventually told him to jump, though, and even pushed him off the ledge. His descent was not fatal, however, as his fall was stopped in mid-air by a force field that Geordi La Forge had rigged up. Explained co-writer Brannon Braga, "That just got cut for time. We felt we had enough Cochrane character bits, so we just cut that out." (Star Trek Monthly issue 26, p. 35) "I was sorry they took that [scene] out," said actor James Cromwell, who performed the scene at his audition for the role of Zefram Cochrane, "but we discussed it and it didn't make sense." Cromwell believed that, if Cochrane was suicidal, he would have had no problem with agreeing to make the initial warp flight, though his reluctance to do so (and him overcoming this hesitancy) is one of the film's main story points. (Star Trek: Communicator issue 111, p. 71)
  • Both the teaser and theatrical trailers included footage unique only to them, with some visual effects created specifically for the trailer. Unique shots included the USS Voyager firing phasers at a differently-designed Borg cube and an alternate version of Picard's soon-to-be infamous speech, "The line must be drawn here!" in the teaser, and cut takes of various Borg drones in the theatrical. This appears to be the only evidence of cut material; no deleted scenes have surfaced or been officially released. [45]

Star Trek: Insurrection[]

Phillip Glasser as a young Ru'afo in a deleted scene

The Special Collector's Edition DVD release includes seven scenes that are either deleted, extended or alternate takes, introduced by Peter Lauritson.

  • Ru'afo's Face lift (Scene #32): Includes a few extra seconds of footage of the skin-stretching procedure during Ru'afo's first conversation with Admiral Dougherty.
  • Working Lunch (Scene #36): Captain Picard spills his salad on his uniform while doing research on the Briar Patch in his quarters. Commander Riker enters and they discuss the features of the region.
  • Flirting (Scene #40): Extended footage of Riker and Troi's research on the Son'a in the ship's library. The two officers banter back and forth and throw scraps of paper at each other like schoolchildren while being shushed by a stern librarian. Max Grodénchik appears in the scene as a Trill Ensign though he has no lines. The relevant plot points from this scene were included in the theatrical version.
  • The Kiss (Scene #155): Anij and Picard's kiss, filmed in super-slow motion, as the Ba'ku have the ability to slow down time. Co-Producer Lauritson comments that "although it read well on paper, it just didn't work when we cut it together. So we just dropped that part of it."
  • Status: Precarious (Scene #268): After his attack on the Son'a ship, Data beams himself out of the Cousteau immediately before it explodes.
  • Disabling the Injector (Scene #270-277): Additional dialogue between Picard, Riker, and Worf immediately before Picard beams aboard the metaphasic collector.
  • Alternate Ending (Scene #301-304): Alternate death scene for Ru'afo. He is rapidly de-aged by the metaphasic radiation of the Ba'ku planet's rings, using a series of younger and younger actors. Lauritson explains that Paramount Pictures felt the original ending was too "soft."
  • A further deleted scene (part of Scene #306) featured Armin Shimerman as Quark, who arrives on Ba'ku aboard the USS Ticonderoga to open up the planet as a vacation spot at the end of the film; he is dismissed by Picard and escorted back to DS9 by an irritated Worf. This scene was scripted and filmed but not included on the Special Edition DVD, although a still picture from it can be seen among the special features.

Star Trek Nemesis[]

Romulan senate, deleted scene

John Berg in a deleted scene

Seven deleted scenes appear on the DVD edition with introduction by producer Rick Berman. In the intro, Rick Berman confirms that roughly fifty minutes of footage was trimmed from the original version. The seven deleted scenes make up about seventeen minutes of this original footage and include:

  • A private conversation between Picard and Data over a glass of wine.
  • Early introduction of Shinzon in the film (right after the wedding reception). This is the scene that includes the dialogue from the theatrical trailers, "But in darkness there is strength…" (Viceroy) and "The time we have dreamed of is at hand… the mighty Federation will fall before us…" (Shinzon).
  • The second mind-rape scene of Counselor Troi in a turbolift.
  • A scene of Picard walking with Troi down a corridor and Troi explaining to him that he and Shinzon are two different people. This scene includes the line from the trailer, "it was like a part of me had been stolen…" (Picard).
  • Sickbay getting ready for battle, a short dialogue between Dr. Crusher and Picard is shown.
  • Worf warning Picard about the Romulans just before they leave for Romulus. This scene includes the dialogue from the trailer, "I recommend extreme caution…" (Worf).
  • The original extended ending – a new first officer is introduced on board the Enterprise and two funny moments are shown afterward. Instead of ending while the Enterprise is docked above Earth, this alternative ending shows the Enterprise warping away.

Other deletions:

  • A conversation at the wedding between Picard and Wesley Crusher, who explains that he will be serving as an engineer aboard the USS Titan under Captain Riker.
  • A scene in the Enterprise mess hall in which Riker, Troi, and Worf discuss the differences between Human and Klingon honeymoon traditions, and Data attempts to share a meal with B4.
  • A scene of La Forge and Worf clearing out Data's personal effects from his quarters, in which several props from the TNG series (including Data's violin and the pipe he smoked as Sherlock Holmes) appear. Spot the cat also appears jumping into Worf's arms; when Worf states that he is "not a cat person," La Forge responds "Looks like you are now!"
  • A different version of the Romulan Senate opening scene in which John Berg's Senator has dialogue.

Star Trek[]

Sarek and Amanda, 2230

Amanda and Sarek with newborn Spock in a deleted scene from Star Trek

Diora Baird

The "other" green-skinned girl

  • A scene which shows Amanda holding newborn baby Spock on Vulcan with Sarek. This scene appears in several trailers. In the audio commentary, Abrams explains that this was to be the very first scene in the film, preceding the USS Kelvin scenes, and that it was cut because it was felt that there would be too much back-and-forth in combination with all the other young Kirk and young Spock scenes.
  • A scene where young Kirk witnesses an argument between his brother George and their uncle Frank, prior to Jim's decision to steal the Corvette.
  • An extension of the scene with Sarek and young Spock where Sarek and Amanda argue over young Spock's fight with the bullies at the Vulcan school.
  • A scene which shows Nero as a prisoner on the prison planet, which turned out to be Rura Penthe. It was Nero's escape from Rura Penthe which Uhura heard about in the transmission she received regarding an attack on a Klingon prison planet. These scenes feature many actors and stunt performers as Klingons and several background aliens from the prison planet such as a multi-eyed alien. [46] This sequence also contains Nero's line, "The wait is over", as seen in trailers for the film.

Two images from this sequence were in fact used in the film – a shot looking straight down at Nero as the Klingons prepare to give him a Centaurian slug treatment was used aboard the Narada, when Ayel comes in and reveals that the ship has arrived where Spock would be emerging, and an image of him laboring on Rura Penthe appeared during Spock's mind-meld with Kirk.

  • A longer version of Kirk's conversation with Gaila and the subsequent Kobayashi Maru scenario, in which it is revealed that Kirk took advantage of Gaila's feelings for him to reprogram the simulation (via a message from him to her, which she received during his test) – the production staff's DVD commentary would explicitly describe Gaila's visibly annoyed appearance during Kirk's subsequent hearing as a holdover from this scene.
  • A scene on board the Enterprise in which Kirk attempts to apologize to Gaila, but mistakes another green-skinned female for her.
  • A brief shot in which Spock Prime walks near Sarek, who seems to sense his presence.
  • Several other aliens were created for the film, including Barney Burman's homage to the M-113 creature, a salt sucker.[47](X)

Star Trek Into Darkness[]

The film's deleted scenes are available via the Xbox SmartGlass app. [48]

Khan shower

Harrison taking a shower

Rima and Lucille Harewood

Kirk meeting the Harewoods

  • Kirk recording his captain's log, falsifying the events on Nibiru.[49]
  • Alexander Marcus watching news reports in his office. [50]
  • An alternate take of the office scene between Kirk and Christopher Pike.
  • A scene on Kronos in which Uhura's ruse is interrupted when Kirk decides to exit the K'normian ship and attack the Klingons with his crew members. The fight halts when two Klingons hold Kirk to the ground and put a rifle to his head. As Kirk's crew comes out from behind cover, the Klingon commander shouts an order and a redshirt is shot in the chest. The commander also orders Kirk to be killed, but the Klingons are shot by Harrison as he appears.
  • A scene shows John Harrison having a shower in the brig.
  • Carol Marcus mentions to Kirk she was raised by her mother in England. [51]

This scene was intended to explain why this Marcus spoke with an English accent while her prime counterpart's accent was American.

Star Trek Beyond[]

Star Trek Beyond deleted scene

Kirk and Scotty at Yorktown

  • According to Director Justin Lin, very few scenes were taken out of Star Trek Beyond, but he did lose some with Spock and McCoy. [54] Lin also revealed that the final length of his original edit of the film ended up being nearly thirty minutes longer than the film's final cut. He noted that he removed many of these scenes because of rhythm issues. [55]
  • An example of the omitted scenes between Spock and McCoy involved, as Simon Pegg later explained, McCoy picking up a gun and having a crisis of what it meant to fire a weapon. [56]
  • Another scene had Sulu discussing with Uhura his guilt about his husband having moved out to Starbase Yorktown to aid his career. [57]
  • On 21 September 2016, Simon Pegg's twitter account provided a link to a deleted scene apparently taken from the Starbase Yorktown scene. In it, Scotty explained to Kirk that he himself needed to leave because he was about to have a meal with Romaine. [58] The same scene was later included as one of two scenes available in the Star Trek Beyond Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and 4K Ultra HD.
  • A brief scene between Scotty and Jaylah onboard the USS Franklin was cut, where the alien commented on Scotty's strange use of the English language. [59] The same scene was later included as one of two scenes available in the Star Trek Beyond Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and 4K Ultra HD.
  • An example of the scenes which were cut due to rhythm issues was a longer shot of Scotty in the torpedo bay. [60]
  • Jason Matthew Smith, who portrays Hendorff, revealed his character was to have been killed at the hands of Krall. However, all of these scenes were cut, due to tweaks to the story during the editing process. [61] In one scene included in the film, he is barely visible behind Keenser, in a line of Enterprise crew being herded into captivity.
