That Arena poster is fabulous, definitely the best one they’ve done.

2. Harry Ballz - December 4, 2012

I wonder how they stop the Seven of Nine statue from tipping over.

3. Phil - December 4, 2012

Wern’t the Borg supposed to be sexless…..

Only after they marry.

It felt to me that the show really began to hit its stride in Season 3. Folks seemed to settle into their characters and I stopped seeing actors and starting seeing the crew of the Enterprise.

I remember when BOBW ended. There was a crowd of us that got together for a potluck each week to watch the new episodes. I remember how the episode began building towards the finale, with the chorus behind the Locutus soundtrack and Picard looking so sinister. Then, Riker says that last word, “Fire!” and the music hits its crescendo. There was a moment of silence–of pure disbelief at the awesomeness that we’d just seen–and then the room exploded. There were high fives, shouts of, “No friggin’ way!” and the awful realization that we had to wait months before we found out what happened.

Still gives me chills to relive it again. Hats off to all the folks behind TNG and years of really great television. Years later, it still holds up.

6. Jerry Modene - December 4, 2012

Yes, I remember that day very well – and the growing realization, as time was running out, that they weren’t going to finish the episode. I had no idea it was going to end like that, though.

7. Mark James Tucker A Man And His Dream - December 4, 2012

I went to the special Screening/Launch for the TOS music set last night at the Egyptian theatre, we were treated to a very cool live performance by Trek Composer Gerald Freid, of a suite of his music from season two including everyones favorite Action theme from Amock Time, on his Obo.\
I could have done with out the droning on of Jeff Bond, and his cutting off or correcting Gerald and writer David Gerald during the Q&A following the screening of Amock time.

The set is very well worth the money, definately get it if you have the money to. worth every penny.

8. Obsidian - December 4, 2012

I’m getting old. I still don’t understand what iPads are for.

Can’t wait for seasons 3 – 7 blu rays! Um, I’ll skip 1 & 2…

As an aside, I was just thinking that TNG may have been the show that started most other shows doing cliff-hanger season finales. Who shot JR was a few years earlier, but it seemed to really take off after TNG’s Best of Both Worlds cliff-hanger season 3 finale. I’m pretty sure ALL scripted shows end each season with a cliff hanger now.

(Which reminds me–RIP Larry Hagman)

9. Richard - December 4, 2012

Season 2 of Next Gen is very underrated. As whole it may not be the greatest, but it has some of the series’ most compelling episodes. Its them finding their ay and beginning to gel. And as I slowly make my way through the S2 blu ray set I have to tell you it is very very worth it. The special features are outstanding and are what they should have been all along when the dvd’s were released.

10. Captain Dan - December 4, 2012

Can’t wait for that TOS box to arrive here. Merry Christmas to me! Looks fantastic and I’ll bet it sounds ear-bleedingly awesome.

11. dlee - December 5, 2012

8 No, Blake’s 7 was doing it much earlier.

12. Andy Patterson - December 5, 2012

@10 yeah, is Christmas to me too

13. OldDarth - December 5, 2012

Woohoo! TOS Music set is on its way. The Holy Grail of Soundtracks has finally been released.

I’ll wait for a Best Of collection for TNG on BluRay – there are only a handful of episodes I would like to revisit – Inner Light, Yesterday’s Enterprise among them.

14. Michael - December 5, 2012

What’s up w/ Amazon & Best Buy online? BOTH state it will be 1.5-2 weeks before this title ships! My order even says it may not ship or arrive till Dec. 27th! But if I go locally, only 1 city near me has it at Best Buy, and 2 stores not near me at Silver Platters.

15. Picard's Fish - December 5, 2012

that’sa fake Commander K…

16. Emperor Mike of the Empire - December 5, 2012

Nice trailer commander. To bad it’s fake

17. Jim - December 5, 2012

@14
C’mon man! Enough nonsense around here! Let me help you: it is a FAKE!

18. Commander K - December 5, 2012

@18 Hush! I increased your dopamine levels for 2.5 seconds before you clicked on the link, it can only be a good thing! ;)
And yes, I concede, it’s a fake.

19. dub - December 5, 2012

TNG Season 3 is looking great just for the bonus features alone! Okay, here’s a little entertainment for you…DS9 with music from The Hunger Games:

Now DS9 is a show I’m really looking forward to seeing on bluray! Hope they make it happen!

20. ME!! - December 5, 2012

‘Frakes thinks TNG characters can be added to an alternate history taking place 100 years before they were around!’

‘George Takei is in an Archie Comic!!’

‘This guy wrote a big book on the Federation and they might make future ones of Trek stuff that doesn’t exist yet if they make enough money!’

(Hidden in the middle of a later article between several other items)

‘Oh, by the way, some record company released the TOS music on CD.’

Nice. Great reporting. Nice priorities.

21. Jonboc - December 5, 2012

Just ordered the TOS box set. Every little note and effect ever crested for the show in one little box. Good things DO come in small packages!

22. rm10019 - December 5, 2012

TOS set on its way to me too! Merry Christmas everyone!

23. MikeTen - December 5, 2012

I would have rather had 7 of 9 as a full Borg or in a starfleet uniform, She looks better in my opinion. The silver space suit looks like something out of the first season of Lost in Space.

24. Adam Bomb 1701 - December 5, 2012

That poster for “Spectre of the Gun” is great. Pure genius. My hat would go off to the artist, but I never wear hats.

25. Dave in RI - December 5, 2012

Is there anywhere I can see the reverse side of that 7 0f 9? I’m curious if the …accuracy (yeah, that’s the ticket)…if the accuracy of the statuette is consistant.

…like they say….I hate to see her go, but I love to watch her leave :-)

26. Andy Patterson - December 5, 2012

Friend of mine was at the launch party at the Egyptian Theater for the TOS music CD box set last night. Said Gerald Fried was there playing experts of his original stuff from the show. Fried, an oboist, had a piano accompanist there playing with him on”Amok Time”, Finnegan’s Theme”,…others. He sent me a little clip from his phone. Would love to see the whole video of that. Can’t wait for my set to come in the mail.

27. Ciaran - December 5, 2012

I haven’t got any of the TNG BluRay box sets, but I am definitely starting with Season 3. That is where TNG REALLY began for me. Seasons 1 and 2, aside for one or two episodes, were just awful and my money will not be taken from me to watch awfulness in HD.

28. CaesarGJ - December 5, 2012

Ordered the TOS set. I’ll probably wrap it for myself for Christmas. :)

Kudos, sir.

29. Joel - December 5, 2012

Season 2, like Season 1, is a revelation on Blu-Ray. It’s almost like you’re watching the show for the first time. I feel quite fortunate that I didn’t purchase all of TNG on DVD and that most of those were purchased used for only a few bucks a pop. The remastered TNG is the only way to watch the show from now on.

30. Sisko's Pale Brother - December 5, 2012

Did anyone who bought the TOS soundtrack set see an estimated shipping or delivery date? All I saw was a notice about high order volume, etc. I can’t wait to get it, it’s gonna be awesome!

31. Hallbjorn - December 5, 2012

“You’ve ruined our summer !” Best quote from the s3 trailer for TNG

32. James T. West - December 5, 2012

Just ordered my CD set TOS soundtrack!
Cannot wait!

33. Fred Fredrickson - December 5, 2012

Does anyone remember the Tyco Enterprises that were supposed to come out?

http://trekmovie.com/2008/07/24/comic-con-08-mattel-reveals-new-star-trek-rc-toys/

Wow, didn’t realize it was four years ago…

34. chain of command - December 5, 2012

I ran my VHS into the ground too, Seth. However, BOBW came out in June of 1990…not 1989 :-)

35. David - December 6, 2012

34. I was just about to say that, good catch ;)

36. David - December 6, 2012

On the other hand, “Shades of Grey” in June 1989 didn’t exactly have us on the edge of our seats haha
