Star Trek V Special Features 4x3 what gives?

The past few Star Trek motion picture DVDs have had documentaries and special features that were 16x9; enhanced for widescreen.

However, all of the Star Trek V special features appear to be 4x3. Even the trailers are non-anamorphic!

Why was this done after the precedent that was set for the previous special edition DVDs?

Shatner wanted the extras to be 16:9 enhanced, but the writer's strike and post-production SFX problems resulted in the lackluster version we have today.

Just when you think a studio is doing a good job with their releases, they go and half-a$$ something.

How would a writers' strike have any effect on whether or not the features are 16 x 9? Writers don't have anything to do with that.

It's called sarcasm...ask Santa for some of your own next Christmas.
