Should come out at around fifteen bucks. I'll pick it up to see Encounter at Farpoint.
Of course you will...

And it'll probably retail $19.99-$29.99. I would spend just about any amount to get them, so it doesn't matter to me.
Encounter at Farpoint is the only thing there that really interests me here. I'm burnt out on Ron Moore's over-wrought Klingons and The Inner Light has never done anything for me.

I'd have rather seen A Matter of Honor and something like The Wounded or Ensign Ro.

As for price point... Paramount releases "Best of..." editions for both TNG and TOS at $9.99 and they quickly went to the five dollar bin at Wal-Mart. I think the days of Paramount over charging for the sixth re-release of material is over. TOS full season Blu-Ray sets came out @ $64.99 after the series was released originally for $129.99 per season on DVD.

A single Blu-ray release may retail for $20, but no way they retail for $30.
Reunion may be the pinnacle along with Redemption I, but they probably wouldn't have worked as a single Klingon story. You could take Sins of the Father a single episode if you were a non-fan. Either way both episodes are light years better than Encounter.

Most DVD-Blurays that have 4 episodes sell in the $20-30 range when they come out (currently the best of collections are $14.98 retail). No doubt there will be discounts, but this is not just a re-release, its an entire reworking...a totally new edit since there are no film masters. They'll prob treat it like a new show so expect to pay extra.
