Why cant they just stop dicking about with releases like this. How difficult is it to release the same issue worldwide? Extremely by the looks.
It's all about the stores making as much money as possible, NOT about making fans happy!

Fantastic. We just got a great Star Trek movie a few months back and soon we'll own it, so we can see it again whenever we want.

The vast majority of people posting around here, including myself, are what you call classic fans.

LOL.

On the contrary, I'm not an Abrams Trek fan and i appreciate the fact we still have trek in film. I like the direction JJ is taking it, and i like the films as films, but they're not the Star Trek i grew up with and love.

That is the funniest statement I've heard yet from a "TruTrekkie".

Nice observations.

I too am not expecting them to re-release it with full compliment of features. But never mind. Least there is no extra charge for it, thats something.

Is there word on if this is a limited release or will it be available for the foreseeable future?

Thanks dude.

Don't know. The digital download code has like a one-or-two year expiration date, but I don't know if that means the commentary file won't be available after that date or not.

Oh, you mean like when Paramount was releasing the Trek movies on DVD containing only the movie (not even the trailers on the disc) and charging more than a comparable movie with bonus features (sometimes 2 discs), only to have them release "Director's Editions" and "Special Collector's Editions" later on to milk more money out of the fans?

And I'm not just an Abrams fan, junior. I'm a Star Trek fan.

Exactly. You beat me to the punch. I am not happy with how this marketing fiasco turned out and as a result cancelled my order with Amazon. That being said, I still fully intend on buying the movie because I enjoyed the ride. I just can't say, at this point, whose copy I'll get - or when I'll get it. I still believe retailer incentives should be limited to tangible items packaged in with the discs - not the 'special feature' videos themselves.

And if you don't make the fans happy then your future product will not be received well. I mean making the fans happy is your bread and butter. If it weren't for Star Trek fans the movies would not be here in the first place. Keep your fans happy should be #1 priority and the $ will follow.
