Star Trek: Enterprise seasons Blu-ray spec. features wishlist

Paramount released Enterprise seasons on DVD when all the effects were rendered in standard definition.
The effects will need rerendering in HD for Blu-ray.

What else can they do to get fans to purchase this series on Blu-ray?

The Digital Bits reviews of the DVD seasons shows these special features:
Star Trek: Enterprise
The Complete First Season - 2001-02
7 behind-the-scenes featurettes (all 4x3 video)
1 audio commentary track
3 text trivia commentaries
If I had any nits to pick with the bonus material on the Season One DVDs, it's that I really want more audio commentaries.

The Complete Second Season - 2002-03
2 audio commentary tracks
2 text trivia commentaries
5 behind-the-scenes featurettes (all 4x3 video)

The Complete Third Season - 2003-04

1 audio commentary track
1 text trivia commentary
4 behind-the-scenes featurettes (all 4x3 video)

The Complete Fourth Season - 2004-05
-3 audio commentary tracks
-3 text trivia commentaries
- 6 behind-the-scenes featurettes (all 4x3 video), an outtakes video, a gallery of production photographs
extras on this final Enterprise set, well... they're a bit of a letdown.
Too bad all of the behind-the-scenes featurettes were shot on 4x3 video and not widescreen. Highly doubtful Paramount has access to widescreen behind-the-scenes footage from 2001-2005 unless they license footage from a visit to the set from BBC or some United Kingdom show (which always shot widescreen standard-definition since late mid-1990s.) It's possible Paramount shot some widescreen behind-the-scenes in in season 4.

Hopefully we'll see more audio and text commentary tracks and maybe a look back if it is released on Blu-ray in 2011 a 10-year anniversary gathering of the lead actors on the show for a new round of HD interviews or maybe a roundtable with Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Chris Pine, Scott Bakula, Kate Mulgrew as Federation starship captains.
