I used to have one of those phaser remotes, but it was the style they used in The Next Generation. I lost the instruction sheet so I couldn't figure out what code to program into it to control my stuff, so I sold it at a garage sale. Then a week later, guess what I found? Yup, the instructions.
I think I'd skip getting this one, though it looks very cool. They want you to buy the "remastered" DVD's. I saw an episode of that the other day, they changed the special effects and it looks awful. Like highly detailed crayon drawings or something. In the opening credits they got rid of the realistic, stylish and magnificent U.S.S. Enterprise and put in some utterly crappy looking CGI replacement. It looks as one-dimensional as a piece of paper. They even screwed around with the theme music, making the vocals way louder, so now even that sounds like crap.
You must have seen something completely different than what I saw. I think the remastered opening credits look magnificent; while there have been a couple of episodes in which the CG work has looked cartoony (I'm thinking "The Galileo Seven"), in most of them it's been a tasteful refinement of the primitve and limited original FX.
