Re: Season 3 Blu-Ray: December 15

Help!!!

After selling season 2 Blu-ray set for $59.99----Best Buy has decided season 3 is so much better they're selling it for $69.99 (???)
Are they on crack?

Amazon has had it for $52.99 for weeks!!!

Does anybody know if any brick & mortar stores have it for a decent price?

Thanks!

Why don't you just order from Amazon. That's what I did.

Mine arrived today from Amazon - on the release date. No need to run around, rend my hair, and scream about the price in stores.

Re: Season 3 Blu-Ray: December 15

I didn't mind paying $65.99 for this at Best Buy.

What a treat to see a decent print of the unaired version of "Where No Man..." at long last. It's better than the OK bootleg copy I have had for a few years.

And my favorite third season shows have never looked better!

I'm not sure if there is one in your area, but I walked into my local Fry's Electronics store and bought a Star Trek, Season 3 blu-ray off the shelf today for $52.99, same price as Amazon.

"Spocks Brain" for everyone!

Re: Season 3 Blu-Ray: December 15

I got mine at Best Buy, and they were matching a lower price from one of their competitors.

I actually thought something was wrong 'cuz the box for Season 3 is so much smaller than those from the first two seasons (plus the security label on top says "Best Of Season 3", for some odd reason ). But this is because there's only 6 discs in Season 3, as opposed to the first two seasons which both have 7 discs each, and so they creatively found a way to make the S3 box smaller.

And despite what the label says, it's not a best-of thing - it has all the episodes.

Re: Season 3 Blu-Ray: December 15

I got my copy from Amazon.com on the 15th, and season 3 has the same audio problems on my Panasonic BD30 player that season 2 has (sometimes audio is muted for several seconds at the beginning of the episode). Also, some of the English subtitles are strangely re-worded or mis-worded ("I'll lose my medical authority" for "I'll use my medical authority"). Overall, however, the box set is great.

My guess is that this is a problem with any disk that has "seamless branching." Some blu-ray players have a problem that that feature, which manifests as audio dropouts, sometimes video dropouts, etc.

Look for a firmware update on Panasonic's site that might help. If there isn't one, complain to Panasonic. Or get a Playstation 3.

I have all firmware updates for the player. I complained to Panasonic about season 2's audio problems, and they said the discs were defective (they're not; if I use the skip button to return to the beginning, the audio plays normally).

Re: Season 3 Blu-Ray: December 15

Walmart has the star trek blue ray for only $52.86if anyone is still looking for it.


As a side note, would anyone whos purchased this mind pming me their game code for the Star Trek movie uniforms that come with this blue ray? I don't have a lot of spare cash in the current economy, and just can't justify spending the money, but would really like to have those uniforms for the upcoming Star Trek Online computer game. Any donation would be GREATLY appreciated.

A pm would be great, or my e-mail is ErebdraugOrnbar@yahoo.com

Re: Season 3 Blu-Ray: December 15

I too was shocked at the thin packaging for season 3. I've always been nitpicky about the appearance of my DVDs (and now Blu Rays) as they sit on the shelf so having one not match the other is annoying.

I was thrilled a few years back when New Line offered fans the opportunity to purchase the outer box that holds all three extended LOTR movies together. I would love to see Paramount offer fans something similar to hold all three season boxes together. My alphabetized and orderly DVD shelf would look so much nicer.

Not necessarily. If you have all three in an outer box, then (assuming your collection is indeed ordered) you may have to put it OUT of order depending on how many DVDs are before / after it.
