New Fan Collective????
 
Hello, everyone. I was wondering if anybody had any info regarding new fan collectives. As a fan who isn't insanley rich, I like these collections a lot. I'd love to see a collection with the finales and pilots of all the shows, or ones that focus on certain shows, (like a REAL best of the next generation with like 4 or 5 discs.) anyone know of any development regarding new fan collectives?

I don't believe that there are any additional Fan Collective DVDs planned. There was rumor that a Romulan Collective was under works but I don't think that it panned out. There are BEST OF compilation DVDs being released (the most recent was last Tuesday with releases for TOS and TNG).

If you look around though you can find some season box sets for the same price as the Fan Collective DVDs. I recently found Seasons 1 - 3 of TNG at Wal-Mart for $15.00 each.

Too bad a Romulan one would have been nice. but thanks for the info. I'm not too happy with the best of releases since theyre only one disc but maybe ill check at my walmart to see.

Circuit City is out of business so Best Buy nationwide has jacked up prices... they have no real competion.

But for many many years it has always been that if you want to buy whatever movies Walmart is the place to go.

A Romulan set would have been cool, especially since the current Fan Collectives don't have very many Romulan episodes. Balance of Terror and The Enterprise Incident are on the Captain's Log set, but I think that's it. So there wouldn't be much double-dipping. In fact, if they stuck the remastered versions of those episodes on the set, there'd be no real double-dipping.

$15 each?! Nice find! How long ago was this?

The episodes on past Fan Collectives were all voted for on startrek.com... Sad to see the state that site is currently in.

I would suggest a Vulcans & Romulans set. The 10 best efforts featuring the Star Empire and some logically connected stories:

Disc One - Vulcans
ENT The Forge/Awakening/Kir'Shara
TOS Amok Time
extra feature: TAS Yesteryear

Disc Two - Vulcans
TOS Journey to Babel
TNG Sarek, Unification Part I & II

Disc Three - Romulans
ENT Babel One/United/The Aenar
TOS Balance of Terror

Disc Four - Romulans
TOS The Enterprise Incident
TNG The Enemy, The Defector, Face of the Enemy

Disc Five - Romulans
DS9 In the Pale Moonlight, Inter Arma Silent Leges
VOY Eye of the Needle, Message in a Bottle

Actually, that would make for a pretty good set.

Cheers. I actually wanted include Enterprise's Minefield (canon violation and all), preferring that to Voyager's Eye of the Needle. It's tough to leave episodes off but it's trade-off between DVD disc space (200 min limit with a featurette) and how many dedicated stories Romulans had in each series.

Would there be enough episodes for Vulcans to have a dedicated set, I wonder? Maybe if you extend the theme to centre on the best Spock, Tuvok & T'Pol stories.

Circuit City is still alive as an online retailer.

Well, I'm not exactly loaded either... but I do tend to focus on buying Star Trek DVDs more than most other merchandise, often all over again too knowing my track record. First starting in the days of VHS and now seriously interested in getting TOS and the films on Blu-ray.

That's another collection choice, I would've preferred to those single disc 'Best of' TOS & TNG volumes CBS seem to be focusing on.

Disc One
TOS The Cage
TOS Where No Man Has Gone Before (Unaired 2nd Pilot version)
TOS The Man Trap (Premiere)
TAS Beyond the Farthest Star (Premiere)
TAS The Counter-Clock Incident

Disc Two
TNG Encounter at Farpoint
TNG All Good Things...

Disc Three
DS9 Emissary
DS9 What We Leave Behind

Disc Four
VOY Caretaker
VOY Endgame

Disc Five
ENT Broken Bow
ENT Demons/Terra Prime

Turnabout Intruder and These are the Voyages... I would leave off, with both already on the previous two sets.

The Wormhole November 25 2009 03:59 PM

Re: New Fan Collective????
 
^^Encounter At Farpoint, What You Leave Behind, and Broken Bow have also been on previous sets (Q, Captain's Log, and Klingon, respectively).

Endgame has alerady been on two sets, Borg and Time Travel.

ChristopherPike November 26 2009 02:22 AM

Re: New Fan Collective????
 
Fair enough. Endgame would become triple dipping with a Pilots/Finales set. Double for those others.

I think they missed a decent opportunity with a Romulan/Vulcan pick, especially the way Star Trek 2009 turned out. But perhaps it's best not to be reminded about bridges that were burnt...

I read somewhere that they are considering reopening some stores as well.

I bought them last week. It was exactly one week prior to Trek XI coming to DVD.

I'd like to see the Vulcan/Romulan fan collective, but a Cardassian fan collective even more. Though I doubt they'd do that, as it would mean four discs of DS9 and one of TNG and Voyager.
