I expect the pricing to be pretty much like last time.

I got Season 1 for like 60 bucks. Hopefully Season 2 is either like that price or cheaper. We are getting less episodes afterall. Of course it sounds like we're getting more special features so that might even things out too.

I too hope it will be cheaper -- it's one less disc in the set (5 discs versus 6)... and if each disc is valued at $10, then it should be in the $50 range. Though, CBS may not see it that way. After all, they have to make up for the the monetary loss they suffered due to the recall and the replacement discs they had to press and send out.

If only the folks at Chace Audio hadn't bungled the initial release, we may have stood a good chance of getting S2 for that low a price. Now... not so sure. I'll be pleasantly surprised if it is that low, though.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Okay, getting back into Mr. Burnett's mystery Star Trek hidef releases, The Digital Bits is reporting that the new Warner/Paramount deal, where Warner is going to release some 600 films from the Paramount catalog, includes Star Trek. So, bringing this together with Mr. Burnett's twitter tips, I'm more and more confident that we're going to see at least some Star Trek movies getting a new BD release!!

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Sadly The Digital Bits must have misread their source. According to the Hollywood Reporter article they link to:

"The agreement excludes about 100 cornerstone Paramount titles, including the Transformers, Star Trek and Indiana Jones franchises."

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...ibution-376469

The original press release concurs: http://www.deadline.com/2012/10/warn...ribution-deal/

It's certainly possible that a re-release of the Trek movies will come next year, either in time for the new film's theatrical or home video release, but it will be from Paramount itself rather than Warner.

There's also a major documentary on the movies that is currently homeless, called "Star Trek Motion Pictures: Beyond the Final Frontier" from King Media Services. I wrote to them a couple of years ago when they had a trailer for it on their site, and I was told they were trying to work out a deal with Paramount. They didn't say what venue it was commissioned for.

So between that and the arguable need to remaster several of the films and release the director's editions of 1, 2, and 6, there's certainly an argument for a re-release. Hopefully it eventuates.

Yeah, the Variety article from a week or so ago specifically indicated that Star Trek was one of the titles Paramount was excluding from the agreement.

Good news. If I remember correctly Amazon followed suite with the same price last time?

They did and for a short time it was discounted further to $ 59.99

^True. I am waiting to see if they drop the price before I pre-order. $114 is just too much.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

It was 90.99 when I pre-ordered it from Amazon, so the price has actually gone up. I hate to have to order it from Best Buy (I had a bad experience with them once).

Amazon is pretty good at lowering their preorder prices on already filled orders and they'll never go above the price you got when you preordered. So you have to get a lot of people to use that price alert option to tell Amazon about the lower price and then they'll change the price.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

So this release is on December 4. There have been some unspecified amazing special features to expect. Shouldn't these have been announced by now?

I know on Season 3 of TOS there was a relatively late announcement that it would include the alternate version of "Where No Man Has Gone Before," but I feel like it was more than a month before the release.

I guess my question is, as late as it is, should we believe the hype that there will be more than what has been announced so far?

Nope. They'll save those kinds of announcements for as late as possible, in case there are production problems and things like that.
