If it bothers you that much just watch the season sets instead.

It just seems like it wouldn't have been much work to include the televised end of part one/beginning of part two using seamless branching.

Nah, CBS wants fans to spend the extra cash to buy a separate release. I consider the whole BOBW separate release to be a bonus disc that CBS wants fans to buy.

Re: Is there any point in buying The Best of Both Worlds on BluRay?

It's one of the most popular TNG storylines and not everyone will spend the money on season sets. More frugal and less hardcore fans can easily pick up some HD TNG goodness. So, to answer your question: yes, there is a point.

I don't count it as a double dip, but if you are a completist, it least the bonus features are nice. And I love the documentaries on these Blus so far.

If these single releases sell well enough, you may see other sets ("Best of" Themed sets like "Klingons", "Borg, "Time Travel") as was done with the DVDs after the season sets came out of various TV shows.

If the prices are reasonable (like the Target sale on Season 3 and TBOBW set was) I will pick up these "mini-movie" edits. They are also good for loaning out to friends!
But I don't consider them "essential"

As cheap as the release felt, they've pretty much guaranteed that this consumer won't be picking these up in the future unless they're included in special deals like the one we saw at Target.
