I saw this episode on DVD recently, and the big scene went like this: Roy got out of his Veritech and went straight to Claudia’s apartment for dinner (and probaly sex afterwards). Meanwhile, some mechanics were looking at the Skull Leader Veritech and marvelling at all the holes in it. Cut back to the apartment, where Claudia asked Roy something, got annoyed when he didn’t answer, then turned around to discover he had collapsed on the floor. Next thing we know he’s been declared dead at sickbay.
Problem is, that’s not how I remember it from when I was a kid, watching this strange but fascinating show that was so much better than the likes of GI Joe and He-Man. I’m almost positive that Roy went to sickbay first and was told to stay in bed, but he brushed off his wounds in a casual manner and left to see Claudia. The mechanics weren’t just looking at the general damage to Roy’s Veritech, but specifically at several holes that went through the pilot’s seat. Finally, the scene in the apartment ended not just with Claudia looking shocked, but with Roy facedown on the floor in a growing pool of blood.
So the question is this: What the hell happened to that scene? Why was it on the air on a schoolday afternoon but not on the remastered DVD? I may be misremembering some details, but I’m damn sure I saw Roy bleeding to death on Claudia’s floor.
