Differences between UK US versions?

Right, let's see what I can do. Basically any DVD you see on eBay is unlikely to be anything other than the US release. The good news is, voice wise, it's the same. However, it isn't a straight lift from the UK version. It's 8 compilation tapes, of about an hour each, slightly edited and edited in such a way that you lose end credits and start credits for some episodes. So it's 3 episodes a tape, but I don't know how they've done it on DVD. It would certainly be the full series, as near as #### it. You're unlikely to get a full UK version - there might be enough episodes on people's home videos throughout the country, but it never saw a commercial release over here. As for him having a private feedback - well, he's selling a bootleg DVD. You pays your money and you takes your chances, I'm afraid... Although you might want to look at the FAQ for another option as well.

Gunnaknow, if you have a look here:http://www.starfleetxbomber.co.uk/merch ... .htmyou'll find full details of the cuts from the US series (click on the US tape boxes). It's nothing massive - certainly not full episodes, but some scenes do disappear to get the time down. The thing with the credits is - they formed part of the show with recaps / previews, you see. So the US tapes do lack a certain something when compared with the full UK version...

note that some of the cuts are APALLINGLY done and jar very badly - christ knows what kind of hangover the person editing them must have had on the day he did them!! ;)
