If they don't get Nimoy for the bonus features, then there's really no point to any of this.
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.
Hopefully they can find a good tape source of this as well:

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Doubt it, too much TOS stuff in there for it to matter on a TNG release. They'd have to pay Shatner, Nimoy, DeForest Kelley's estate, and so on - even if they found the source, I bet it'd be too expensive to include.

Not too sure about the "Unification" cover at all. They ought to have used a much more prominent image of Spock to attract new Abramsverse fans.

I must be in the minority because I actually like the cover. I pre-ordered it and S5 on Amazon a few minutes ago!

I didn't like the Unification cover at first but it's really grown on my...I like the sideways text.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

So, thanks to a tweet by him (RT by TrekCore), "Inner Light" scenarist Morgan Gendel is apparently recording his commentary today with the Okudas! Here's hoping it is one of several commentaries for Season Five. Season Three still has the the most commentaries at five. These would be great in addition to "Inner Light" (just my wishful thinking):

"Darmok" - Joe Menosky & Okudas
"A Matter of Time" - Rick Berman & Okudas
"Cause and Effect" - Brannon Braga, Jonathan Frakes & Okudas
"The Next Phase" - Ronald D. Moore & Okudas

Nice list, saw the news about the Inner Light

Don't hold your breath for Joe Menosky, the producers haven't much luck including him thus far. He moved to Italy mid-way through TNG (he basically did an early form of telecommuting) and seems to have been a bit of a recluse ever since, even though he did return to the States.

I would be very interesting in seeing/hearing him on the bonus content though.

Yeah, I agree it's probably unlikely they can get him for the very reasons you bring up, but it'd be a shame as he had a sizable impact on TNG (he was co-producer in Season 5) and "Darmok" was probably his best work on the show, though I admit I'm sort of partial to "The Nth Degree" myself. Would've loved a commentary on that!

If I were a betting man, I'd put money on at least one of your guesses ;-)

Well, Ron Moore said he wanted to try and do commentaries for all the episodes he was involved in. Considering the lack of them in Season 4, I think it's reasonable to assume we're getting a commentary for Next Phase. I would love one for Darmok though. Now there was an episode that was unique.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Robert Meyer Burnett confirmed a few things on Twitter recently. One is that his TNG Composers doc is 75 minutes long (I think that officially makes it the longest feature on a laserdisc, DVD or Blu-ray focusing on composers!). The other is that Seth MacFarlane and Brannon Braga recorded a commentary for "Cause and Effect."* And so did Ronald D. Moore and Naren Shankar on "The First Duty." That joins the one Morgan Gendel recorded with the Okudas for "The Inner Light." And of course, an unknown one on the "Unification" standalone (possibly Cliff Bole and the Okudas?).

*It better not be the same few minutes of commentary repeated over and over!

I actually think that would be hilarious if it were done as some sort of easter egg (in addition to an actual commentary)

Like the Thermian track on GALAXY QUEST? That would be fun. What do you wanna bet that they at least feign repeating their names at the start of Act One?

"Hi, this is Brannon Braga. I wrote this episode."
"And I'm Seth MacFarlane. I did not write this episode."
