UK date: 18 November 2013.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00DW6CQEC

Going by previous releases it will probably be out around the same time in the US.

£42.10's not a bad price either - pre-order placed!

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

According to blu-ray.com, season 5 is now available for pre-order from Amazon US. I will place my pre-order as soon as Amazon.com is back online (I guess all of you have heard about the Amazon.com outage.)

I was able to get to Amazon.com just fine. The picture on the pre order page wasn't there though, which was interesting.

It's back up now, and I was able to place my order.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

According to Trekcore's facebook page, Unification is getting the special single disc release. The only thing I don't like about that aspect is I will probably not buy the signal disc release and I will miss the special features about Spock. Darn them for that.

That seems really odd since the two episodes are on the same disc in the season set. I really think this one is a reach.

"Unification" would certainly sell better than "Time's Arrow" as a single disc release, they can put a nice big picture of Spock on the cover. I can see them doing a new Nimoy interview as part of the extras.

Target will probably have their save $10 deal again when you buy it with the S5 TNG set on release week.

The thing is I've been getting gift cards from Christmas/Birthday so I would rather get it through Amazon. I got BOBW with the Target deal and that was nice, but I'm not sure when I would ever put that disc back into the blu ray player again. Now, if they did this, and then at the end of the release they had a bonus release of all the single disc special features, I would probably buy that. That actually wouldn't be a bad idea and it's another revenue source for them.

They probably approached Nimoy for an interview but I imagine he would've politely declined -- I don't think he has much to say about his experience on TNG. I'd be pleasantly surprised if they got him to do an interview, however!

As for "Time's Arrow" not getting a single-disc release, I wouldn't be surprised if something like the below is released around the time the complete series set is ready next summer (or possibly later that fall), to make up for the absence of separate releases of that 2-parter, as well as "Birthright," "Descent" and "Gambit.":

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

If they don't get Nimoy for the bonus features, then there's really no point to any of this.

But I'm a completist, so I will buy it anyway.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Cover art for Unification, along with more details on both S5 and Unification have been posted on StarTrek.com: http://www.startrek.com/article/firs...son-5-blu-rays

I'm unsure about the Unifaction cover art, it looks very photoshopped or even CG (especially Picard and Spock's Hand)

That may be because, if it's a fold-out slipcover like the last two, it's designed to open along Spock's hand, revealing Picard underneath with nothing obscuring his face. Just a guess.

HA! I just KNEW they were going to put Spock on the cover! The vertical words look weird though.

Unless the documentary also has a special about all those models used for the surplus depot scenes, like the BoBW documentary had for the Wolf 359 ships.
