Re: Michael Okuda: Buy TNG Blu-ray sets to get DS9 on Blu-ray!
Trials and Tribble-ations is too 'money' to waste on a sampler.
Many fans wondered why BOBW wasn't on the TNG sampler. It's simple - that episode was a potential gold mine, and look what happened. If BOBW was put on the TNG sampler, fewer would buy a standalone release or attend the Fathom screening.
Trials and Tribble-ations is DS9's BOBW.
I disagree. When I think TNG, I almost immediately think about The Best of Both Worlds
. When I think DS9, Trials and Tribble-ations
is the farthest thing from my mind.
You need episodes that the fanbase loves not episodes that are overtly nodding to other series. In my opinion.
