Actually all the original cast Star Trek films are 7.1, so that would not be a first for Paramount. The press release doesn't make sense to me. Given they are changing their codec for this release, tends to make me think that the TRUEHD track has the separate 7.1/5.1/2.0 tracks in one stream. If that's the case, that's a definite TRUEHD advantage over DTSMA. I'm pretty sure they would have the DD track still hidden.
