>and Crusade?

No, because they only existed in digitized form on the avid editing machines,
there aren't any director's cuts on film in TV.

The "Special Edition" is NOT a director's cut. It is another producer's cut.
What you saw in the original version of the pilot was with very few exceptions
what the director assembled. What is in the special edition is what Copeland
and I were able to re-edit after having done the show for a while.

Sure, anyone can go in and re-edit the various episodes, but that isn't the
same thing as a specific director's cut, and those are gone.
