I might just make the upgrade to blu-ray now.

Full list of inclusions from Trekweb:

Interesting that they've put them in wacky airdate order.

I am thinking the same thing myself.

Waiting to try it out on my Blu-Ray drive...

Interesting bit: "have the option of selecting the original mono sound heard on the series' original television airings decades ago."

I hope this is accurate, as this would solve all of the audio errors which have bugged the crap out of me since the first DVDs came out.

I do wonder about this seamless branching thing. Some of the live action footage cuts to the new footage a few seconds earlier than it did with the original stuff. I wonder how this will effect the original versions?

I don't think that where the live action cuts occur should be a problem. The branching will occur before the new effect shot, so that if you choose the original version you will see a little bit more of the original live action which will lead to the original effects.

Yeah, I was thinking of it the opposite way, for some reason. I'm pretty jazzed about the original mono audio track. That would make these sets the best of all three worlds. :-)

Awesome! All I need is a Blueray player!

I held off of buying the DVD versions specifically to wait for the Blu-Ray release, and here it is. I'm STOKED.

I've only seen a few of the episodes in my adult years, most of the original series watching I did was as a kid. This is going to be a lot of fun.

I'll stick to my DVD's, Bluray sucks.

I have this on Pre-order, 55 delivered, a absolute bargain for what we are getting.

In a way that makes people much more picky about the picture quality. And in a way that makes it a living hell for us collectors.

The fact that they are including the old mono soundtrack mix is amazing enough for me to be excited about it. It took a higher quality format to finally give me the lesser quality version I always wanted on DVD. Funny that.
