Today CBS and Paramount Home Entertainment announced the third season DVD set for the digitally remastered Star Trek. The set will hit the streets November 18th, which is one year after Season One arrived (on HD DVD / DVD combo). Season Two arrives in stores next week. CBS does not have any more details or box art, but TVShowsOnDVD has some preliminary artwork.
TOS-R Season Three Box Art
From TVShowsOnDVD. They note this is preliminary, but it is consistent with the other two seasons and red is the logical choice for color (it was also used in the non-remastered set) released a few years back, although the red shown below is a bit more burgundy.
The set will include full-length versions all the episodes of Star Trek’s third and final season, digitally remastered with new CGI. The original Season Three DVD set included “The Cage” and so the remastered version is likely to be included in this new set, but this has not been confirmed. It will also include the same ‘collectors data cards’ as the previous two seasons. No details on what special features have been provided, but it is expected to include more of Billy Blackburn’s home movies. Pricing is likely to be the same or similar to to Season Two, which is available for pre-order at $63.99 at Amazon.
Seasons One and Two available at Amazon
The Season Two box set is now available at Amazon for pre-order, discounted to $63.99 (Amazon has a low price guarantee that if they drop the price before ship date of August 5th you will get that lower price). Amazon has also discounted the Season One DVD / HD DVD combo disk is to $104.95 (retail is $194.99).

Last week of TOS-R in syndication
It is hard to believe but this is the last week of the 2007/2008 syndication season of Star Trek remastered before it begins reruns. This weekend’s episode is fittingly enough, the season three finale, "Turnabout Intruder." TrekMovie should have the review + vid and screenies from last weekend’s episode "The Empath," up shortly.
