    These are awesome Maxwell. I'm planning on printing these out on some nice high gsm card at work double sided. The original season 1 link appears to have gone down could you reupload it? Also did you do an alt for Season 2?

    I didn't do an alternate one for S2, no. But if you have some specific image in mind (from TrekCore's S2 Blu-ray galleries) that you would like to see I could try to make a second one. Here's the original S1 insert -- just click on the image for the full res png:

    Real fans know the episode order by heart and will instantly know which episodes are on which disc. :p Just kidding, these covers are great, and I found myself removing disc 1 a couple times.

    Is there a good way to print these on thinner sheets of paper, or is thick photo paper needed? I was thinking of printing out custom Blu-ray covers, but the standard photo paper is too thick.

    Thanks. I used thick, 9.5 mil A4 glossy photo paper that I just had lying around, but I admit I had a very, very hard time getting my ink jet printer to grab each sheet and pull it in properly. It took a lot of tries, but I eventually got all four printed.

    Before I was successful in doing so, I was considering going to Office Depot and picking some thinner mil photo paper like this:

    http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/394895/Office-Depot-Brand-Premium-Photo-Paper/

    This is 9 mil instead of 9.5 mil. Do you know how thick your paper is that you're trying to use? I think you may be having the same problem I was having. My advice is to NOT do what I did and force the printer to accept the paper... try and buy something similar to the above paper. And remember to use the correct settings in your print dialog box for printing photos on glossy photo paper!

    Hope that helps! :)

    ^That's similar to what I use. Letter-sized photo paper, 9 mil I think. I'm wondering if there's a consumer option for what the studios use for their inserts and DVD covers. As thin as a piece of paper, not rigid, and photo quality.

    I have been buying the German TNG blu ray steelbooks and thought I needed an 'episode guide' in English for them, which is how I arrived here - and very impressive inserts they are too. However, for me the episode title isn't always enought to jog my memory, and I thought I would try to create inserts a little like in the (at least in the UK) DVD sets that had a one or two line synopsis of the episode...

    Just wanted to ckeck in again to say thank you!!! for these wonderful inserts.
    To me, they have been invaluable.

    I don't suppose you have any plans of making similar ones for the Enterprise BD releases?

    You're welcome! I'll probably do ENT when I buy the complete series set later this year, as I don't have them just yet. :)

    Is the stardate for Birthright part II correct? It seems way off to me.

    Those look great!

    Regarding the last one, I was about to ask "what's the Borg cube doing in season 6?" until I realised it was the Dyson sphere!

    Argh! You're absolutely right. Images and link fixed. That'll teach me to blindly copy CBS's artwork. In the future I'll check all the stardates! Thanks!

    No problem! They all look great! Can't wait for the season 7 inserts.
