Star Trek is 2.35:1. The 1.85:1 is what will fill your 16:9 screen. No, if it's available in "widescreen," it will be the theatrical aspect ratio. So your options are to 1. understand that what you're seeing is what the director intended; 2. watch the 2.35:1 movies on some sort of zoom which will cut off the sides; or 3. watch only movies with a 1.85:1 aspect ratio.

As a corollary, I thought we were way past this "I don't like black bars on my TV" bullshit?
