HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (February 8, 2013) – Continuing the series of high-definition collections celebrated by fans, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION™ – THE THIRD SEASON and STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION – THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS will both arrive on Blu-ray Disc April 30 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution in separate must-have sets packed with all-new special features. Both collections are the result of the painstaking restoration of the renowned series that involved returning to the original film elements. The results have critics raving that “this set will feel like you’re experiencing a brand-new show” (IGN).

Boasting an unprecedented reunion of Next Generation writers moderated by comedian and Star Trek fan Seth MacFarlane, this third season collection features an all-new feature entitled “Inside The Writer’s Room.” Including fascinating discussion on the creation of the show’s acclaimed third season by some of today’s most visionary science fiction television writers, MacFarlane leads a panel that includes Ronald Moore, Brannon Braga, Naren Shankar and Rene Echevarria. Plus, the collection is highlighted by an all-new multi-part documentary “Resistance is Futile: Assimilating The Next Generation,” which reveals behind-the-scenes insight on the making of Season Three, focusing on the drastic changes to the creative and writing staff leading to the arrival of new show runner Michael Piller. Also, the set features a special tribute to Piller, including never-before-seen interviews with cast, crew, family members and industry colleagues who all discuss his lasting influence not only on the series, but also on the Star Trek franchise as a whole. Rounding out the exclusive bonus material includes an all-new gag reel and newly produced commentary on select episodes.

The STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION – THE THIRD SEASON Blu-ray is a
6-disc collection featuring all 26 episodes of the third season. Continuing to follow the remarkable voyages of the Starship Enterprise, the third season includes some of the most celebrated episodes in Star Trek canon.

Hailed by TV Guide as one of the best television episodes of all time*, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION –
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS Blu-ray features a seamlessly edited, one-part, feature length 86 minute presentation of the classic two-part cliffhanger. In this fan favorite episode, Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) is captured and assimilated by the Borg. Available in high-definition for the first time ever, a centerpiece to the release is a newly-produced documentary “Regeneration: Engaging the Borg.” Offering fans an in-depth exploration into the creation of The Next Generation’s most iconic villains, along with the making of the episode, the exclusive feature
includes all-new interviews with the show’s production staff, visual effects artists, writers, and cast as they reveal the challenges faced in producing one of the most technically complex episodes of the series. Plus the set includes an exclusive gag reel and all-new commentary with technical consultants Mike and Denise Okuda, actor Elizabeth Dennehy and director Cliff Bole.

This may prompt me to finally get a Blu-ray player.

2. alec - February 8, 2013

1. freezejeans – February 8, 2013

Resistance is futile!

3. MJ - February 8, 2013

“Best price” on Season 1 TNG Blu-Ray from Amazon vendors is now down to $42.

DaneilCraigisMyWookingBitch, are you seeing this? I told you so!

PS: Two years from now I will be able to buy the entire TNG series new on Blu-Ray for less than $140, while many of you will have paid close to $500 for it…I guarantee it.

4. Allen Williams - February 8, 2013

I actually said back in 2009 I was willing to pay extra per season if it helped get these on blu-ray. Now here they are asking for the price of other shows on blu-ray? Its a lot less than I said I was willing to pay. So I don’t care if I end up paying more now than I would have. Besides the more money they get, the more chance we have of getting DS9, and Voyager released and Enterprise is already coming out.

5. MJ - February 8, 2013

@4. That is why it is priced so high — because a subset of fans really believes this. You guys are just helping to set the price point so high that those of us who aren’t willing to get ripped off will have to wait to buy this later. That is why they always lower the price a lot later — because they already maxed out on you fans who don’t have a lot of common sense with your money.

Got TOS Blu-Ray complete series blu-ray last month for $82.

There is a sucker born every minute, but he’s not me.

6. Bill - February 8, 2013

#3 Good luck with that since the DVD set from five years ago is still $250. Trek sets don’t depreciate.

7. Daniel Craig is my Wookie Bitch - February 8, 2013

MJ,
Amazon vendors on the marketplace are not commercial retailers.
Anyone you, me or anyone can be an amazon vendor furthermore, they usually only have a single copy or two.

also watch out for marketplace vendors who are casting off the original discs, and keeping the corrected replacement discs.

Now if AMAZON.com itself was that price then thats one thing, but even then why are you gloating about this.

i have littearly made 1 post on the site in the past year, and that was in response to the other star trek bd thread.

You say you don’t want to argue and fight but yet, you purposely post something meant to get a response out of me.

to everyone else, I am so looking forward to both of these and really love the slip cover for Best of Both Worlds.

Ok back to my self imposed exile, I think this time for good. If you want to talk me I am over at Trekcore. where posters show a little class.

8. Daniel Craig is my Wookie Bitch - February 8, 2013

one last thing MJ,
Deep Discount is not a big commercial retailer.
It was limited stock and in typical DD style they canceled a number of peoples orders claiming it was price ad, pay a visit over at bluray.com and read for yourself. (my screen name over there is WJWS Amity 13.)

Its a fact that Amazon Best Buy , target, frys etc has not gone that low.

And need I remind you it took TOS on bluray 3 and a half almost 4 years before DD offered it at that price?

Sorry some how i didnt see the above somehow erased from what was supposed to be a single post, before i hit say it.

9. Red Dead Ryan - February 8, 2013

In Canada, the TOS Blu Ray collection is on sale for $92.00.

10. MJ - February 8, 2013

@7 @8. Truth is, I just miss you, dude, and I know that you can’t help yourselft but to come out of woodwork to respond to me on this fairlhy minor topic. ;-))

But besides me missing you, if I can buy it from and Amazon vendor new, then it is new. You can nitpick whether that is a “real” distrubutor or not, but yet, there it is for sale new on the huge Amazon market for $42.

And please don’t try to convince me that DeepDiscount is not a real distributor — that is just ridiculous. I have been ordering from them for probably 10 years now.

@9 Exactly, and the US$ and CN$ are essentially equivalent right now.

11. MJ - February 8, 2013

@6 “#3 Good luck with that since the DVD set from five years ago is still $250. Trek sets don’t depreciate.”

Nice theory, but like I said, I picked up TOS all three seasons Blu-Ray for $82 three weeks ago, and Red Dead Ryan can buy it right now for $8 more than that.

12. JP - February 8, 2013

A trio of Ron Moore commentaries is even more than I had hoped for. This is a no brainer purchase for me. I don’t spend a lot of money, so splurging once every few months on Trek is fine by me. The extras on S1 and S2 were both excellent and this looks to be even more packed.

13. Bah Humbug - February 8, 2013

Are you kidding me? The special features from the stand-alone Best of Both Worlds disc aren’t included in the S3 Blu set? What, $130 isn’t enough for these guys?

Guess I’ll wait to pick it up on ebay from someone who got it off the back of a truck…

14. Justin Olson - February 8, 2013

@ 3&5. MJ – February 8, 2013

Two years from now I will be able to buy the entire TNG series new on Blu-Ray for less than $140, while many of you will have paid close to $500 for it…I guarantee it.

That is why they always lower the price a lot later — because they already maxed out on you fans who don’t have a lot of common sense with your money.

————————————————————————————————–

$2.30 per episode is hardly being ripped off, MJ! What you are talking about is owning the entire series — seven seasons worth — for below wholesale price (i.e. less than $20 per season). That’s just completely unrealistic… and doesn’t show much common sense either.

Show me another series on Blu-ray with more than 1,100 minutes of content per season that costs less than $20.

“Fringe” comes close, but then again, it wasn’t sitting in a salt mine in Pennsylvania for a quarter century in tens of thousands of individual pieces! It’s a contemporary show on network TV which sold a ton of advertisements every week for the last 5 years. And they had HD masters ready to go!

15. MJ - February 9, 2013

@14

Heroes: The Complete Collection [Blu-ray] (2011)
List Price: $200.99
Price: $64.99
You Save: $136.00 (68%)

Multiply this times 2 to equal the approximate episode content of TNG and you get a price of $130 — $10 below what I said I would eventually be able to buy TNG complete blu-ray set for,

Enough said! Next???

16. Driver - February 9, 2013

Any chance of Season 2 getting a remaster? I am going to wait till that drops down low to buy because of the sub par x-fer.

17. Mark Wood - February 9, 2013

MJ

You will almost always be able to purchase media cheaper months and years later, then original releases (unless something is completely out of print). That’s hardly news or surprising.

Many of DVD and blu-rays can be lowered to under $5/ DVD, $9/ bluray and still deliver a very small profit for a studio. Most studios would never bother for just that small amount of profit. But since they charge more for the initial year, and make a lot larger amount, they can live with making far less later. It’s like the difference between first run releases and the dollar release for the theatre. Movie studios would never, ever be able to survive off of the very tiny fraction they would earn just off of the dollar run of movies. But of course, by the time they enter that portion of a run, the films have already generated 99% of their revenue, so its no big deal. Same basic principal.

Of course the TOS and TNG remasters are a fairly special bred for television releases, in that they are vastly more expensive to produce then a normal tv releases.

When Game of Thrones releases their ten episodes season, the show was already mastered for HD, it’s already been edited, all post production work was already done, ect. The cost is primarily the cost of printing and making the disc. That isn’t the case here at all. Not in the slightest.

And as for the cost being high its all subjective, after all there are fans who can remember paying 29.99 for just two episodes, for VHS quality, meaning we were paying $390 a season. Paying for that content plus a lot of extras and at a quality level vastly superior, seems like a good deal to me.

18. MJ - February 9, 2013

@17. You are ignoring the triple-dipping though. The studios have already made tons on the VHS, Laserdisk, and DVD’s for this series. And in the 1080P remastering, they will make millions more dollars separate from the blu-rays through online movie delivery and future formats. In this big scheme of things, the production cost of remastering is pretty minor, and doesn’t really determine the price. The price is based on what the market will bear, and in this CBS knows the same suckers who bought the VHS, DVD’s etc, will pay $70 per season for this in their initial run. For a couple years down the road, they will lower the price significantly — and again, this is pretty much unrelated to the production cost of the blu-rays.

Anybody who tell themselves they need to pay the high price to support getting other Trek series to Blu-Ray just doesn’t understand how this all works They are well-meaning suckers who money is easily taken out of their pockets by CBS.

And why am I getting such grief here on my relatively minor opinions on this topic? Well its because people don’t want to learn that they have been ripped off, and so it is easier to reject my arguments than admit that uncomfortable truth.

I am not stopping anyone though from triple-dipping here and paying $70 for the latest incarnation of TNG. It’s a free country — go for it!

19. Remington Steele - February 9, 2013

MJ, you’re my hero

:-\

20. pilotfred - February 9, 2013

will be getting the best of both worlds on a signle disc, when the price has come down will look again at the boxset

the sample disc was a good example of how good it look however how bad encounter still is and the same goes for the first two season ok tis is the third so better however if i will get one box set i will want them all

21. pilotfred - February 9, 2013

data laughting is still a great moment

22. Doublecut - February 9, 2013

Lest we not forget, the prices for S1 and S2 dropped from the MSRP that was that high down to $60-65 (through Amazon themselves, not a seller) by the date of release. Season 3 will be no different. The BOBW standalone will likely drop to the same rate the sampler disc in 2011 did…I picked it up on its street date at Wal-Mart without a discount for $14.99.

Some people need to chill out.

23. Justin Olson - February 9, 2013

@ 15. MJ – February 9, 2013

First of all, that’s a UK import with VAT taken off for sale in the US. When it first came out in the UK, it was £97.07 or $153.33. Multiply that by 2.4 to reach the number of minutes TNG has, that’s $368. That’s roughly $2 per episode.

Second of all, “Heroes” was a primetime network show, supported by tons of advertising revenue with 1080p masters ready to go for Blu-ray. Remember that “Heroes” wasn’t sitting in tens of thousands of pieces in a salt mine in Pennsylvania for a quarter century like TNG.

Even in its waning third season, “Heroes” was averaging $4.3 million in ad revenue per telecast — $108 million for the season. By the time they were ready to debut the season on Blu-ray a mere five months later, NBC was swimming in cash. They could afford to set the price at around $50 when it first came out, but it’s taken several years for it to come down to below $20.

TNG on Blu-ray is scheduled to be completed in August of 2014, so you’ll have to wait until then to get your hands on a complete series set. But you’re deluding yourself if you think you’ll be able to buy it right away for less than $140. You’d probably have to wait until 2017-2020 until it drops anywhere close to that. As Bill pointed out earlier, the complete TNG series DVD set from five years ago is still $250.

And I still fail to see how $2.30 per episode is a rip off. Compare that to the “Heroes” numbers at the top. $2.30 per episode is a rip off right at release for TNG, but $2 per episode years later for a “Heroes” complete series set isn’t?

24. Phil - February 9, 2013

Not sure why the difference in cost between Canada and US, US and Canadian Dollar have been at parity for a while now.

Not that it matters, I don’t buy these types of things, especially at these prices.

25. Uberbot - February 9, 2013

Hmmm…wonder if all the two part episodes will be edited into movies like this?

26. richpit - February 9, 2013

I will be buying the Best of Both Worlds Blu-Ray.

I wish they’d do something special for Yesterday’s Enterprise. That’s my favorite TNG episode of all time.

27. JohnRambo - February 9, 2013

@1. freezejeans

omg

28. P Technobabble - February 9, 2013

The Best of Both Worlds should have been TNG’s first feature film instead of the mediocre Generations.

29. NuWisdom - February 9, 2013

They really need to do a CGI-altered version of The Best of Both Worlds, and all other TNG Borg episodes, to alter the Borg appearance and ship internal design, to match what the altered look later on was, and which premiered, and not just as an ‘upgrade’, but as a retroactive redesign, as evidenced by Picard flashbacks to Locutus, in Star Trek: First Contact.

30. Emperor Mike of the Alternate Empire - February 9, 2013

I will be getting Best of Both Worlds on Blu-Rey. Can’t wait to see it.

31. K-7 - February 9, 2013

#23. Justin, you seem to be behaving in a disingenuous manner here with MJ. You specifically asked him:

“Show me another series on Blu-ray with more than 1,100 minutes of content per season that costs less than $20.”

And MJ then did exactly what you asked for and produced the Heroes Blu-Ray set which fit that price point.

But Instead of doing the honorable thing and saying, “OK, you got me there; good example,” you instead provide some history of UK costs (like who gives a shit, because you can buy it on Amazon today for the price MJ mentions), and provide some long winded response about the history of the Hero’s production and advertising?

When you provide someone a specific challenge, and they respond and meet that specific challenge, instead of trying to weasel out of it, be a man and give the person kudos for meeting the challenge. Enough with the sour grapes — man up!

32. A guy named Joe - February 9, 2013

looks like MJ’s alter ego K-7 is starting to circle the wagons lol to defend “HIS” friend with that post 31.

What does it matter MJ is MJ, there is no convincing him of anything logical.
I have just learned to ignore it and live with it.

33. Brea Tonnika - February 9, 2013

I really wish Anthony P, would reign in MJ’s obnoxious attitude towards those who don’t see eye to eye with him. It was cute 3 years ago, now not so much.

34. James - February 9, 2013

You don’t like the price MJ, then guess what don’t buy it, and don’t come trolling on threads about the set whining and complaining about those of us who are ok with the pricing and are genuinely excited to own this NOW, not 4 years from now

35. Admiral Archer's Prize Beagle - February 9, 2013

Here’s betting the three posts above are from the same person

36. Justin Olson - February 9, 2013

@ 31. K-7 – February 9, 2013

Justin, you seem to be behaving in a disingenuous manner here with MJ. You specifically asked him:

“Show me another series on Blu-ray with more than 1,100 minutes of content per season that costs less than $20.”

And MJ then did exactly what you asked for and produced the Heroes Blu-Ray set which fit that price point.

————————————————————————————————–

No. He didn’t do ‘exactly” what I asked for. “Heroes” unfortunately fails the criteria I set out just like the example I provided in the very next paragraph. Neither show has more than 1,100 minutes of content per season. I would be more than willing to give credit where credit is due if he had truly found a series comparable to TNG.

Recall that after my original request I said that “Fringe” came close in my estimation but that, “[I]t wasn’t sitting in a salt mine in Pennsylvania for a quarter century in tens of thousands of individual pieces! It’s a contemporary show … [and] had HD masters ready to go!”

37. Pointing Out The Obvious - February 9, 2013

150 bucks for that? I’m sorry, But SCREW that. I’m sick of CBS thinking they can price gouge us.

38. Red Shirt Diaries - February 9, 2013

I agree that MJ’s focus on this topic has gotten boorish over time. But you got to give the guy his props for responding completely to Justin’s challenge. Yes, MJ is irritating, but at least he is direct about it and doesn’t fall back into excuses and ridiculous diatribes like Justin does. If their roles had been reversed, I’ll bet you that MJ would have congratulated Justin on meeting his challenge.

Brea Tonnika, why is it the only time I ever see you post on Trekmovie.com is to pick fights with MJ? Do you have any original thoughts at all on Star Trek topics to offer us here?

39. Jamesb3 - February 9, 2013

“Heroes” is a poor example. The show is notorious for jumping the shark after the first season and limping along until it was finally put out of its misery. It is not a franchise, and I am willing to bet a fair amount of consumers are not willing to buy it at any price, hence the deep discount to entice the few who will. It is the law of supply and demand.

40. Brea Tonnika - February 9, 2013

37 You know darn well that no retailer (outside of maybe Barnes and Noble) charges full MSRP for Home Video content.

And anyone who pays full msrp doesnt bother to do 2 seconds of price researching.

Also you want to talk about gouging and ripping people off, take a look at all the studios charging 20-35 dollars to have streaming capabilties of a tv show from some online cloud.

41. Brea Tonnika - February 9, 2013

37 and what about being charged 24.99 to 40.00 for tv shows that consist of 6- 13 episodes?
with zero extra value content.
You don’t consider that price gougeing?

42. Brea Tonnika - February 9, 2013

Re MJ: “I am not stopping anyone though from triple-dipping here and paying $70 for the latest incarnation of TNG. It’s a free country — go for it!”
Then quit chastising and name calling us for spending OUR money on what we want. You purposely post on these threads whining about the price and complaining about those of us who want to buy it first week at the sale price, knowing you will get a heated response.

Someone from this site really needs to reign you in once and for all.

43. Craiger - February 9, 2013

I wonder how soon both DVD and Bluray will be obsolete and everything will be in the cloud?

Also I think MJ is trying to save people money and not name calling and telling you guys to wait until the price drops on the BluRay sets if you already have them on DVD.

What happens if Paramount decides to release them again on Ultra HD?

44. Red Shirt Diaries - February 9, 2013

#40 #41 #42

Brea, again all you ever post about on this site is about your obsession with attacking MJ. I have never seen a post from you covering anything regarding Star Trek. It’s the same thing over and over with you – “MJ, stop with your posts,” “Anthony, you need to shut MJ down,” blah, blah, blah.

MJ is a bit of an ass for sure, but at least he brings up some interesting topics and some data to support his positions. All we get from you is constant whining and bitching about MJ. Do you have any original thoughts or ideas about Star Trek at all?

Anthony, if anybody should be reigned in here, it should be Brea Tonnika. All she ever does on this site involves picking fights with MJ. A lot of us are getting very fatigued with here hate.

45. Brea Tonnica - February 9, 2013

43) which is good and all if its said and done ina respectful manner, seriously ever ST Bluray thread its the same antagonistic posting.
We get it he thinks its expensive. but on top of that he also goes on and on about how it doesnt look good , why they shouldnt bother putting it on bluray etc etc. its the same one trick pony show every time in the ST bluray threads. surprised he has not complained about the upcoming TMP, SFS, FF,Gen, Ins, Nem individual movie Blurays yet.

moving along I look forward to owning season 3 on bluray in a few months and will be first in line best buy on april 30th to pick up season 3 and best of both worlds and i will be first inline in march to pick up Enterprise.

46. Red Shirt Diaries - February 9, 2013

#45. Anthony, if you are viewing this, I’d like to request that your reign in Brea Tonnica. She is completely out of control now, having posted four times today basically personal attack emails, and MJ hasn’t even posted here today.

47. Red Dead Ryan - February 9, 2013

“A guy named Joe”, “Brea Tonnika”, and “James” are all one poster/sockpuppeteer/clown who is deliberately stirring up trouble here.

48. DiscoSpock - February 9, 2013

Justin,

With all due respect, you have VIOLATED ALL SENSE OF FAIR PLAY here. Your provided a challenge, which was met, and then instead of admitted the challenge was met, you AFTER THE FACT imposed ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS which would need to be met. That is simple NOT FAIR!

Moreover, these new terms and conditions that you LATER imposed, have obviously been defined so that no other possible result could occur but for you to win the challenge.

You should go into horse race fixing with the mob, dude. That is what this is like.

49. JP - February 9, 2013

How about everybody not telling other people what to do with their money and minding their own business.

50. KevinA - February 9, 2013

Why is season 3 near double S1 and S2? Was this the plan….get you hooked at the start then bump up the price to catch up? It’s a bit much CBS and Amazon. Maybe another $20 for few more episodes from S2 but DOUBLE!

51. A Guy Named Joe - February 9, 2013

KevinA, you are the story lists the MSRP not the actual retail price.

nice try at spreading F.U.D. though.

52. Red Dead Ryan - February 9, 2013

Agreed. Justin rigged his own game from the start so that no one could “win” the argument. Except himself, of course.

So from now on, anything he says cannot be trusted or believed.

53. Ky Kiske The angel Of Light - February 9, 2013

Wow Red Dead maybe lighten up on the Monster engergy drinks.

Why do you and the MJ cast of characters take things so G.D. seriously.

54. Victor Hugo - February 9, 2013

43: not everybody lives in countries with perfect internet.

In most countries, the slightest rain kills the net for hours.

and for me, I didn´t considered the joys of bluray until i bought me PS2, and with it, the “First Contact” bluray, it´s really a wonder.

55. K-7 - February 9, 2013

Brea Tonnika and her sockpuppets are out of control again.

56. K-7 - February 9, 2013

#18 “And why am I getting such grief here on my relatively minor opinions on this topic? Well its because people don’t want to learn that they have been ripped off, and so it is easier to reject my arguments than admit that uncomfortable truth.”

Yep, MJ. Although even you probably didn’t expect this much of a shitstorm. LOL. People just don’t like hearing the truth that they have been ripped off.

#52 “”Justin rigged his own game from the start so that no one could “win” the argument. Except himself, of course.”

Yea, adding a bunch of terms and conditions “after” someone has already met a challenge is just plain cowardly and dishonorable.

57. Brea Tonnika - February 9, 2013

ummm I never said I was a girl, dude i said my screen name was an homage to a character from the cantina scene in star wars , and I am not out of control, but any case how about this I make a deal with you MJ errr i mean K7 you don’t cry about us who buy these box sets week one of release, or about the price and I won’t complain about you any more.
fair trade huh?

when i give my word i stick to it.
what do you say Truce?

58. K-7 - February 9, 2013

#57. You are one who some of us expect has multiple personalities here. I have been posting here for four years, and if I was MJ, then Anthony would have instabanned me years ago, so nice try on that.

Regarding you, I have only I only seen you post here beginning recently, and every time you post it is always attacking MJ and whining about how he should be banned. That’s why myself, MJ, Red Dead Ryan and others deduced awhile back that you are most likely the latest version of Stunkill or someone else who has an old axe to grind with us who likes to make trouble here regularly.

You are not fooling us! And if you are going to call yourself Brea Tonnika, then I will continue to refer to you as a she. Deal with it!

59. Red Dead Ryan - February 9, 2013

People who buy these sets at $80 each obviously feel its worth it to them.
Fair enough.

MJ happens to disagree. He prefers to wait until the price drops. Fair enough as well.

CASE CLOSED!

60. Red Dead Ryan - February 9, 2013

Brea Tonnika, or should I say “A guy named Joe”, or how about “James”?

Your attitude on this thread was totally uncalled for. MJ hasn’t said anything to you that could even be remotely considered over the top or offensive. Yet you suggest he be banned simply for expressing his opinion.

Quite frankly, you owe us, and in particular, an heartfelt written apology to MJ.

61. Red Dead Ryan - February 9, 2013

That should read:

“Quite frankly, you owe us (more specifically, MJ) a heartfelt, written apology.”

But somehow I don’t think you have the balls to own up to your behavior here.

62. captain_neill - February 10, 2013

Jeez on Trekcore there is a lot of love for this project.

TNG on HD is amazing and this is the season when everything started to click, this also has the best cliffhanger ever on television.

I don’t mind paying £50 for Trek, it is one of my fav shows on blu ray and it has never looked better.

I am pumped for this release.

63. Anthony Thompson - February 10, 2013

20 bucks is a lot for one episode (even a two-parter).

64. Brea Tonnika(perhaps for the final time) - February 10, 2013

K=7 I never said banned I said Reigned in .Big difference I offered a truce to you as well.

in any case, I am only Brea, and there is no need for me to apologize, but if MJ agrees that if we want to spend 50-60 bucks on a first week release star trek bluray then thats our right and perogitive then I will happily never post about him again.

65. Brea Tonnika(perhaps for the final time) - February 10, 2013

own up to my behavior, red?
what behavior?
Have I use obsence language ?
Have I told lies?
Have I spread F.U.D. (FEAR, Uncertainty, Distrust)?

no I have not, like i said MJ simply needs to stop acting like a jerk cause we are ok with a 50-70 dollar price tag for a favorite show on bd, and Ill happily stop writing about his complaining about us.

66. Brea Tonnika(perhaps for the final time) - February 10, 2013

Thank you capt neil, wish MJ’s morning crew of characters wouldn’t be so revered here.

I am very much looking forward to this set.
and wish mj would just let us be excited for it.

67. Brea Tonnika(perhaps for the final time) - February 10, 2013

58 deal with what? you sad sad little boy

68. KevinA - February 10, 2013

51. A Guy Named Joe
What are you talking about? Amazon’s discounted price for S3 is $116.99! … S1 and S2 are half the price.

69. captain_neill - February 10, 2013

Geez this site makes it feel like a crime to want to buy one of the best shows ever made onto blu ray.

When it comes to Trek seeing it on HD is worth it and I hate the pettyness of people on this group.

I will admit that Abrams film is far from the best but on this site I wil get penalised for saying that. Do I enjoy it? Yes as a movie its fun. TNG is a show I grew up loving and still one of my favourite Trek shows and always will be a fav for me.

70. Uberbot - February 10, 2013

Buying the BOBW set…but that’s it. :-)

71. Red Dead Ryan - February 10, 2013

#65.

You’ve displayed an incredible level of arrogance and self-righteousness on this thread.

Your act has worn thin.

Sheesh!

72. DiscoSpock - February 10, 2013

This Brea troll is still going on and on about this???

Sheesh, come on. ENOUGH!!!

73. A guy Named Joe - February 10, 2013

68 my pre order for season 3 TNG is currently at 79.99 the price it was the day I pre ordered it. pre order prices fluctuate up and down between the time they begin to take them and release week. you know darn well this set will be 55.99-65.99 at amazon, BestBuy, Target etc release week.
And with amazon’s pre order price guarentee you get the lowest price offered from the time after you placed your order.

74. Brea Tonnika(MY final post) - February 10, 2013

72. DiscoSpock – February 10, 2013
This Brea troll is still going on and on about this???

Sheesh, come on. ENOUGH!!!
________________________________________________________

Discospock why am a troll?

I am not the one going on about the bluray’s not being worth it, or complaing about fans like me who think its well worth the money and will own it on day one.

I even offered a truce to you MJ, stop coming in the bluray threads complaining about fans who feel its worth it, then I won’t complain about you.

take a visit over to HD talk, and Digital Bits, and every over bluray site, and you will see most members there (and they far out number those here) think these sets are well worth the price. go over to trek sites you don’t see the likes of people complaining over what a fan spends his money on and what is considerd to much.

This page is specificly about the bluray sets, if its to much for you, stick to the netflix amazon prime free SD streaming.

Ha Ha wow really umm how exactly? I mean do you honestly just like to sit down and misuse Boy Boy words, in sentences, because you like seeing your own words on screen? What arogance have I shown do you even know the definition of arrogance? how exactly am I being self righteous.

It really is funny how Red,Disco,K-7,and MJ are always 100 percent supportive of each other no matter what. how when someone calls out MJ the other 3 circle the wagons to attack and try to reverse psychology the poster to paint MJ as a victim. Just seems a bit odd to me, they have never been in disagrement ever on here, when prettty much every other poster on here has had the occasional MJ spat atleast once or twice.

There I have said what I have to say.
but nothing I said on this page about a bluray collection I am looking forward to, can honestly be construed by a RATIONAL person as trolling
________________________________________________________.

And If Anthony thinks my posts are trolling then I apologize to him and his site and staff. You post some fine articles and truly are the go to source for all things NEW in Trek., even though your real world life might sometime prevent a story from posting the moment it breaks, I am cool with that cause I know when you do post a story its well thought out and backed up with hard facts.

And there you have it my last post, though I am sure the MJ crew of characters willl continue to post about my disagreeing.

Anyone who posts under my name on here won’t be though from this point on.

75. Red Shirt Diaries - February 10, 2013

You mean, this is your last post until you come up with your “new name” to terrorize us all here again. Yea, that’s what you really mean.

Good riddance, troll.

76. Obsidian - February 10, 2013

Today’s Star Trek fantasy: A high-budget, high quality ST series for HBO a la Game Of Thrones.

Who’s having snow for dessert?

78. Jay - February 10, 2013

Red Shirt, why not simply let her go away in peace, I mean you kind of just proved her right somewhat just now.
As she predicted that one of you would post a despariging(sp) remark about her after her “FINAL” post.

I never understand why people get so worked up over some of the commenters on here. ignore those who slight you or you find offensive. ignore them enough they go away.

79. Admiral Archer's Prize Beagle - February 10, 2013

Jay,

I think Red Shirt’s point was that she’s just going to come back under a new name at some point and troll and bait MJ again.

But I hear you; it’s time to put this behind us.

Gotta give MJ some kudo’s though – he’s showed remarkable restraint in ignoring all of her posts and personal attacks on him here this weekend.

80. devonp - February 10, 2013

I just finished Season 1 of next Generation on Bluray and have to say the quality overall was quite good. I was very disappointed in the episode “Skin of Evil”. I thought other than the Funeral scenes which were superbly crisp, most other scenes didn’t measure up, particularly the opening scenes between Tasha & Worf talking about the upcoming match she is to participate in. Tasha’s face is blurry and most close-ups of her throughout remind me of the way they used to backlight the women in the Original Series to give them a more polished softer look. The scenes on Vagra 2 with Armus are not that Great either for Bluray quality. This Season 1 episode falls short for me in terms of Bluray quality and is unfortunate as it is such a pivotal, history defining episode with the death of Lt. Yar. Comments???

81. Anthony Thompson - February 10, 2013

79. Admiral Archer

Why an apostrophe in kudos?

82. Anthony Thompson - February 10, 2013

79.

I LOVE folks who mix it up. Especially with MJ, who is a master at it himself! : )

83. AJ - February 10, 2013

I think this set is quite important as Seth McFarlane’s star is rising quite fast right now. His film “Ted” just did half a billion worldwide, and he’s got a sequel in the works + another cinematic comedy + Family Guy/American Dad/Cleveland, he’s hosting the Oscars this month, and he released an album of old and forgotten orchestral pop standards. He is also re-booting “Cosmos.”

It’s obvious, given his schedule, that the Trek Season 3 work is done out of pure geek lurve for the franchise. He was in two eps of “Enterprise” as a crewman, and if CBS sells it right, he can move a crap-load of these BR sets to non-Trekkers. My 12-y.o. daughter thinks he’s hot, so maybe I can get her to watch some great TNG with Seth on board. She would not do so otherwise.

84. Jay - February 10, 2013

Admiral, There be whales here.

Sorry couldn’t resist lol
Seriously though how do you know for sure,my point is most of these new posters are most likely NOT regular posters on here.
Don’t forget alot of people follow Trekmovie on twitter, and you get new people clicking over from there all the time.

I believe that just don’t say anything if you don’t agree if its truly a troll, they will get bored from lack of attention and give up. If they are not a troll and just don’t see eye to eye with you or others, well that is their right to disagree.

But I really believe that more than 50 % of the time if regulars wouldn’t get all up in arms about a newbie’s post or what they might percieve as an attack. Then these new commenters (and again I really believe they are different people) would not get equally worked up and appear vindictive or whatever.

As I pointed out Red Shirts comment in #75 could have gone without saying (no offense buddy) sometimes its better to keep ones thoughts to themself.

Anthony wordpress sites have Disqus logins and confirmed unique ids now, is there any reason why Trekmovie doesnt add the plugin and make it so posters have to log in?

I only ask cause I myself have a site (totally un trek related lol) that was created with wordpress and I have the disqus login comments option applied. it took less than 5 mins to set up and is a free thing.

85. Mike - February 10, 2013

Anthony Thompson 82, thats part of the problem.
MJ himself dishes as much if not more than he takes it.
But when its slung back to him, MJ crys foul.

But his rebuttal is usually to the extreme, when everyone should just take a step back before they start slinging hurtful words around.

Remember IDIC

86. captain_neill - February 10, 2013

Why can’t we be positive about the blu rays.

it is one of the best seasons of one of the best ever SF shows coming out on blu ray.

I am more pumped for this than I am the new movie. THis is an era of Trek I love and I am loving TNG in HD, it has never looked better. Of course I will be seeing new movie and I look forward to that on it’s release day but this is the Trek I love and am counting down the days to this release.

87. Jay - February 10, 2013

86 Captain_neil
I know what you mean, I am super excited to see the feature length cut on the big screen for the fathom event at the end of April.

88. MJ - February 10, 2013

All,

As most of you can tell, I decided to sit this fight out and not respond to Brea and company — that is why I have not posted / not responded to any of these attacks. I sensed a trap where this person was hoping I would over-respond to her vitriolic bait and thus get me kicked off this site by Anthony. She has “stalked” me for over a month here and every-time she had a series of posts she always requests for Anthony to take action on me — i.e. her goal is to get me kicked off this site. Based on this, I am not about to cede to her wishes and acknowledge her continued attempt to trap me with her personal insults bait. I refuse to allow here to define the rules of the game to harass me here.

And regarding her post where she supposedly wants to “negotiate” with me…well, ignoring the complete silliness of that (like I am a Trekmove nation-state or something?…lol), like the U.S. government, I refuse to negotiate with people trying to blackmail me.

@85. Mike, I must have disappointed you by not get down and dirty with Brea the past couple of days like you apparently were hoping I would do…sorry! ;-)

@52 / Red Dead Ryan: “”Justin rigged his own game from the start so that no one could “win” the argument. Except himself, of course.”

Yep. That was completely unfair. Within The Rules of Fair Plan, if you meet someone’s challenge, then they are honor-bound to accept it; instead Justin starting adding new terms and conditions after I had met the challenge — and those new terms and conditions were so specific to his side of the challenges that it would be impossible for any other outcome to happen other than him winning the challenge. That is dishonorable and shows a lack on integrity.

This whole sad episode has gone on long enough — let’s move on to new topics. Thanks to those of you who came to my support though in the wake of this harassment campaign — I won’t forget it.

89. Promo Boy - February 11, 2013

Looking at the incredible roster of season three episodes, it’s truly amazing how far this show came in three years. Unlike the original series, TNG just got better and better. This season was really a turning point- and I’ll gladly fork over whatever the list price is.
With this season, I’m really getting my money’s worth.

90. DiscoSpock - February 11, 2013

You and the fans like you are the reason the price point is so outrageously high for all of us. If you and your subgroup would be more responsible with your money and refuse to pay these uber-high prices, then the list price would be lowered for the rest of us.

91. Promo Boy - February 11, 2013

90:
Mama didn’t raise no fool– and I don’t have money to burn.
I never pay more than $75 for these BluRays.(Always a good deal to be found somewhere on the web– and I’m not above finding a used set some point down the road) .

92. Harry Ballz - February 12, 2013

I have a new form of IDIC that the rest of you should embrace………..

I DON’T INDULGE CRAP!

The next time most of you want to post something, think “what would Kirk do?”

Everybody with me?

93. MJ - February 12, 2013

Yea…

PHASER ON OVERLOAD…

Taking us all out here, me included!!!

94. KevinA - February 14, 2013

73,
Current price on AMAZON has dropped to $90 …. NOW! http://www.amazon.com/Star-Trek-Generation-Season-Blu-ray/dp/B00B7VZN76/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1360846848&sr=8-3&keywords=star+trek+the+next+generation

Lets just hope your all seeing eye is correct. The intial discounted price on Amazon was over $120 and that was my point then. If they drop it down further then my work is done! Have a nice day.

95. DJT - February 15, 2013

I wish they would release this set earlier.

I love Season 3. Best season of the series IMHO.

I’ve got Seasons 1 & 2 already. Season 3 will be icing on the cake.

96. K-7 - February 15, 2013

@94. $90 for one season??? Are you fracking kidding me???

97. Remington Steel - February 15, 2013

K7 Its no worse than paying 29.99 for a 8-12 episode season of an HBO TV series. Of course that would be to logical to make that comparison, when you are just downright against Trek Bluray prices no matter what unless they are well below the industry average.

98. K-7 - February 16, 2013

Sure it would, because I already paid full price for TNG on DVD.

$90 is highway robbery, no matter how you look at it.

99. Red Shirt Diaries - February 16, 2013

K-7, I Agree — $90 is a complete ripoff. I could see $60, but $90 — are you kidding me?

Remington Steel, the quality, acting, production work and overall budget that went into 10 episodes of TNG cannot begin to compare to the quality, acting, production work and overall budget that goes into a Season a Game of Thrones. Game of Thrones costs about 3 times as much to produce per season as the TNG did per season. So please don’t insult our intelligence here that a price point comparison should be make by comparing Game of Thrones to say 1/3 or 1/2 of the TNG because you get more minutes. In fact, if you really want to base pricing on budgets, factoring in the additional Blu-Ray production work for TNG, a season of Game of Throne should still be priced at least double to that of TNG Blu-ray sets (per season).

100. Digital Conquers All - February 19, 2013

Since I have no interest in the season by season boxsets The Best of Both Worlds stand alone Blu-Ray is a no brainer for me.
