    Got mine today on the east coast. Watching the special features now. Really impressed so far. Can't believe this all came together and what an awesome 20 years later retrospective.

    Only two things I wish had been on there is the extended writer's room feature and an option to play all the HD scenes back to back to enjoy. Maybe a little more unedited footage from the actor interviews also would be have been nice. As someone who has never been to a convention even "old" topics of discussion would be fascinating.

    All that said there is about an hour and a half of extras on the backer version (not counting the included already released promo content from the campaign and updates) which is great in addition to the actual documentary.

    Edited to Add: Didn't see anything about In the Pale Moonlight, Duet, or The Visitor in the extras despite hinting at them in the end credits. Not complaining just an observation.

    Absolutely loved the documentary. Wish it could have been four hours long, and it really makes me want DS9 in HD all the more now. Let's make it happen!

    I kinda hope not...the NYC premiere package wasn't exactly cheap, though it was worth it. :)

    Just finished it. Loved it! The song at the beginning and the end, and all the other post credits too. It was nice that it wasn’t just about the actors but the writers and fans as well.

    The “season 8” premiere episode they came up with sounded so awesome!

    Damar is one of those fictional characters who, even tough he "reformed" still has to die to pay for a past sin. In his case, he murdered Ziyal. It's like Darth Vader. Yeah, he turned at the end and killed Palpatine and saved Luke, but we saw him murder the Jedi younglings (among probably thousands of others), so he also had to die.

    I don't know what you're talking about. Star Wars concluded with a surprisingly dark cliffhanger ending in 1980.

    Mine arrived today. Since I saw the digital backer download a couple of months ago I'm waiting until this weekend to rewatch with some friends who haven't seen it yet. :mallory:

    The next campaign should be for all of the backers who sent money to make the doc to be given all of the material that is being sold on the Shout releases.

    Mine dispatched a few days ago now and I keep checking my e-mails over and over for updates. I'm glad I'm not obsessed. :techman:

    I received mine today. The only issue I have is the Shout Factory bonus disk isn't playing on my Blu Ray player. The feature disk works fine. I do have an older Blu Ray Player but it's never had an issue with new disks before.

    update: Nevermind. Plugged the blu ray player into a different TV and it works fine.

    update 2: The Should Factory Special Edition 2nd disk is not really needed unless you're a completist and must have it. I didn't find it very exciting. The best special features are on the main disk.

    I'm glad he approves. It's a shame he felt that he didn't want to add anything to it, or felt like he couldn't add anything, but it was his choice. It's a real love letter to everyone who was involved, and the fans who continue to enjoy it as well.

    Got my Shout Factory set - the roundtable is just an extended version of the thing they showed at the screenings (and the 15 minute piece on the main disk) and probably not really that additive as mentioned above. I'm hoping the composer reunion is a bit more interesting.

    Yeah. It has Portuguese. Not sure if it's Brazilian style.
