Re: "Best of both Worlds" - Special Bluray Release

I would LOVE to see BOBW in the theatre on the big screen. Is there any reason it couldn't be shown on an iMax screen?

Versus

2:58 - 3:18

Always preferred the cliffhanger version personally.

Re: "Best of both Worlds" - Special Bluray Release

I've been thinking since the Blu-rays were announced it would be good to have both parts on one disc, this is probably the 2nd best way of doing it.

The other would be to have all of part 1 repeated on the season 4.1 disc.

Of course with the Blu-Ray capacity there's no reason they couldn't have feature length and episodic version on the same disc, but I don't think this will happen.

Family belongs with it too really.

Still anyway, the Best Of Both Worlds gets the best of both worlds.

Re: "Best of both Worlds" - Special Bluray Release

Folks in the UK - the BOBW release is now available for pre-order at Amazon UK at just 10.49! http://amzn.to/1118TN0

Cheaper than I expected given the volume of extras on here

Also, I've posted some new details of the bonus features on the set (along with S3 info) at TrekCore here: http://tng.trekcore.com/bluray/01272...s3artwork.html

A blu-ray of this would be great. I have no idea when I'll be able to afford the TNG sets. My instincts tell me a long time from now.

The BoBW cover isnt unexpected, pretty cool though.

Sorry, but that BOBW cover art looks horrendous! It looks like something a fan could have made on photoshop. Fingers crossed they change it before the release date.

And me. It isn't even really Locutus, is it? It's obviously a generic photo of Stewart-as-Picard (possibly even just a photo of Stewart-as-Stewart!) that has had a Borg implant (poorly) photoshopped on top of it. Fail.

I'm really looking forward to this release, but that cover art is terrible. Good thing I'm buying it for the contents not the packaging.

Re: "Best of both Worlds" - Special Bluray Release

I much prefer the picture that was done for the BoBW issue of the DVD and magazine several years back.



I found a larger version that didn't have the episode names on it, just the picture, and i used it as the cover for my novelization of the episode:

Re: "Best of both Worlds" - Special Bluray Release

I hope they are going to have of least some special features about BOBW on the season three set. Would be strange to completely ignore the most popular episode of TNG on the actual season 3 set and to only get features if you pay more for the separate release.

Based on what I've read, I think they are, it's just that there is one additional extra feature exclusive to the BOBW set.

According to TrekCore: The special release will come with its very own exclusive set of Borg-themed special features, including a featurette, all new audio commentary and gag reel. These features are set to be exclusive to this disc, and because of the feature-length nature of the edit, the audio commentary won't be split over the Season 3 and 4 sets.

Re: "Best of both Worlds" - Special Bluray Release

This BOBW release feels very similar to the Next Level Release, something to tide people over and give them new special features while they wait for Season 4. I'm probably not going to get this extra release, but it would be nice to have access to those special features on the Season 4 set. Either that or put them on Youtube or something.

They should have gone with something simpler, like this:
