Re: Choose the Enterprise Blu-Ray Cover Art!

Thanks for posting, FrontierTrek!

Although I'm excited about being able to vote, none of these designs really appeal to me. They could have been a tad more original, IMO.

I suspect the first design will win.

Agreed. I like the concept behind the third choice, but I find it kinda stupid that both seasons 1&2 have a pic of a Archer on the cover. It would be nice if every season had a different face on the cover, or no faces at all, just the insignia, but in different colors.

Re: Choose the Enterprise Blu-Ray Cover Art!

Wow. First, I am actually impressed that all three designs are nice and at least somewhat creative. Most of the Trek DVD releases had horrible cover/box art and design. I am pleasantly surprised to see that they're putting a little more effort into them this time around.

The first (top) choice reminds me a bit too much of the TNG Blu-Ray design. I think the second (middle) choice is really dramatic and eye catching, and would probably get my vote, though I do like the third (bottom) choice, as well.

My sentiments exactly! I don't think the graphics and photos match very well. The design clearly needs some more work.

They don't appeal to me either, they look like photoshops. But I will take the middle one, I prefer the blue, because the NX-01 is my favorite ship. Though frankly you can't even see its shape properly in this drawing. Why are the nacelles burning up?!

Another non-Facebook user here: somebody please vote for #1 on my behalf. It's the one I would buy (if I didn't already have them from iTunes).

All these designs need more lens flare.

Did CBS also put up an online poll for fans to vote for their favorite TNG bluray cover art?

Why does this art suck so much. There are some fantastic covers on Treklit now, why couldn't it be that standard?

It's got to be the third one for me. With the metallic patch, lens flares and Captain Archer into darkness at the side.



Although maybe they could change it to incorporate other cast members?

Having done Archer on S1...

Say Phlox & Mayweather for S2, Hoshi & Reed for S3 and then Trip & T'Pol for S4?

Positioned top & bottom, in the space Bakula occupies, facing off to the left also.


Second option with the fiery NX-01 is certainly lovely artwork. But it's all the same. Just flipped and tinted different colours.



I'd avoid the first option like the plague. Uninspired. Recycled publicity shots.

Yeah, I'd be down for this. Using just Archer on every season would be odd.

The only reason I didn't vote for the insignia one is the over use of Archer.
