I did, I mentioned prices for TOS and TNG and how the higher cost is justified based on the amount of remastering work.

So by that logic, a brand new film which requires no remastering at all should only cost a dollar or two?

Of course not, but they shouldn't charge a huge amount either, how do you think they should set the prices?

Simple: supply and demand.

Re: The bird is out: ENTERPRISE on blu-ray

Those North American SRPs are stupendously high. Absolutely incredible. I suspect the European retail price will be around 40 - 50 pounds/euro's. However since this is Enterprise I might wait for the price to drop. Not a day one purchase for me.

Re: The bird is out: ENTERPRISE on blu-ray

Anybody out there outside of the US actually able to watch the video clip about Enterprise Blu ray special features? I've read a few comments by those who've seen it, saying the likes of Braga, Bakula, Berman, Keating & Trinneer feature... but obviously have yet to see it myself here in the UK.

At both places - Trekmovie.com and Star Trek.com, it isn't available to my location and TNG season sets generally always are.

Perhaps somebody could rip the footage & put it on Youtube temporarily until CBS pull it down? (Assuming they would, since they presumably want people to buy their products and you'd basically be advertising it for them.) It needs to be somewhere that bypasses the usual Hulu (or whoever the video hoster is) territorial restriction.

What's posted is a clip of the featurette you described, but the clip itself only contains clips by Braga and Bakula, most of which is a rehash of information previously available regarding the inspiration for Archer's character.

Re: The bird is out: ENTERPRISE on blu-ray

The business sense of CBS Home video is ST:ENT has already been for rental & sale on iTunes in low-bit rate HD and streaming in HD. There is a limited realistic window of the life expectancy of the Blu-ray physical format for releasing film and TV shows before downloaded content purchases become mainstream and overtake Blu-ray sales and the quality rises to be close enough.
By starting to release them now they are getting in while the getting's good. DS9 & VOY may get a HD remaster for syndication and download but maybe not before Blu-ray sales as a medium are vastly declined already. I appreciate the additional special features as added content on the disc that Blu-ray offers.
I have always said ENT would be on Blu-ray before the 2nd new film.

Re: The bird is out: ENTERPRISE on blu-ray

I'll probably pass on Enterprise on Blu-ray unless the price comes down substantially. I already own it on DVD and probably haven't touched them in a couple of years. Already saw it in HD when it was airing on HDNet and it streams in HD on Netflix.

TNG season three releases two weeks afterward and then the Abramsverse Trek game releases two weeks after that which I'm more interested in. I'm only going to give CBS so much money over such a short period of time.

Re: The bird is out: ENTERPRISE on blu-ray

I was reading what the CBS executive said on startrek.com, and I couldn't help but think, in response to the exec's response to why DS9 and Voyager aren't hitting Blu-Ray next, why not put the rest of the original cast's adventures on Blu-Ray? The Animated Series was Remastered for High Definition back in 2006, and even if it hadn't been, it was still finished on film, so it definitely has a better chance of hitting Blu-Ray before TNG, DS9 and Voyager are even finished.

But, I will say that the cover is interesting, although I don't know just how eye-catching it'll be in stores in terms of it being the brownish-gold it is, since it might get lost in the shadows. Of course, considering that Paramount didn't transfer the text commentaries for the movies, and CBS didn't transfer any of the audio and text commentaries that were made for the Fan Collectives over to the TOS Blu-Ray, I'm surprised that CBS is transferring the text commentaries for Enterprise.

I wouldn't be surprised if TAS is very much on the Blu-Ray horizon some time in the not-too-distant future

DS9 needs it more than anything IMHO.

X-Files would be nice too.
