Season 6 is arguably the best season of TNG. The writers that we associate with TNG’s better episodes were all present, the production staff had TNG down cold, the visual effects were at their peak technologically, and the episodes covered a diverse group of subjects and genres. Read on to see how the season looks re-mastered and details of the treasure trove of deleted scenes the CBS Digital team were able to find, available June 24th in North America.
Along with the boxed set of Season 6, the single disc release of ”Chain of Command”, the critically acclaimed two-part episode that deals with torture, prisoner’s rights, and handling the change of leadership under a new commanding officer, will also be available to purchase on June 24 in the USA. As with other single-disc releases, both parts have been edited together to make one 90-minute TV movie.
So we’ve finally come to Season 4 of Enterprise, often considered the best of the series. It is a bittersweet ending, going out on a high note, but it’s sad to think that this is the last TV series of the entire franchise, canceled after only four seasons. What we have in this final season is generally very good, we are treated to excellent multi-part story arcs about the Eugenics Wars, Vulcans, Andorians, Orions, and Klingons (oh my!) plus the mirror universe is revisited one last time. Read on for the review of the excellent Season 4 Blu-ray set.
Star Trek Enterprise Season 4 is due out at the end of this month, April 29th (to be exact). With that time fast approaching CBS has now officially sent out finalized details of the Blu-ray discs of this highly anticipated season, widely considered the best season of the series. We have new excellent sounding documentaries. “In Conversation: Writing Star Trek Enterprise,” an exclusive, 90-minute writing staff reunion special, which includes Brannon Braga, Mike Sussman, André Bormanis, David Goodman, Chris Black, Phyllis Strong, and Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. As with the previous seasons there is also a new four-part documentary “Before Her Time: Decommissioning Enterprise,” which charts the last season of Enterprise. Plus there are new episode commentaries too. Read on for the full details from the press release.
TrekCore has found the trailers for the Season 6 release of Star Trek: The Next Generation on Blu-ray and the single-disc release that accompanies it, “Chain of Command”, due out in June. Season 6 also gives us a glimpse at Deep Space 9 in HD thanks to being shown in the episode “Birthright”. Check ’em out after the break.
As many of you may remember, Paramount Home Video and Bad Robot pulled quite the shenanigans on us consumers when it came time to release Star Trek Intro Darkness on home video. Extras were made retailer (and e-tailer) exclusive, if you wanted a commentary the only way to get that was to get it from iTunes, other special features were only available via Xbox Live, and so on. So most people didn’t get to see the deleted scenes. Well Trekcore has vigilantly assembled all the sources of deleted scenes they can get their hands on. This includes the famous “why Carol Markus has a British accent” scene, as well as the meeting of Kirk and Lucille Harewood (the young girl saved by Khan’s blood early in the movie) during the ending commemoration ceremony. There’s lots more to read in Trekcore’s two articles. Part One Part Two
We have come to Season 3 in the Blu-ray release schedule, this is the season many feel Enterprise became a show worth watching. Season 3 contains the season long arc of the Xindi threat. It also contains some great one-shot stories outside of the main Xindi narrative such as “Twilight” and “Similitude”, and a couple of pretty lame ones too, such as “Extinction” which is called “one of the singularly most embarrassing episodes of Star Trek I’ve been involved with” by Brannon Braga in the documentary on the set. Read on for the full review of this generally excellent season.
This really seems to be the day of Enterprise news. After today’s earlier Tweet from Brannon Braga about the Writer’s Reunion special feature that will be on Season 4, CBS Home Entertainment quietly put up their trailer for the Season 4 Blu-ray release. StarTrek.com reports that it is coming on April 1, 2014. See the video after the break, be sure to watch in HD and full screen!
Brannon Braga gave Enterprise fans a little gift today when he posted a picture of the just filmed Writer’s Reunion for Star Trek: Enterprise to Twitter. Shooting writing staff reunion for enterprise!! pic.twitter.com/VV189yY9oL — Brannon Braga (@BrannonBraga) December 18, 2013 In the photo are: Andre Bormanis, Chris Black, Phyllis Strong, David A. Goodman, Brannon Braga, Mike Sussman, Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. The previous reunions done for the TNG and ENT Blu-ray sets have all been great. Look forward to seeing this on the Enterprise Season 4 Blu-ray set, expected in mid-2014. –Thanks to TrekCore for pointing out Braga’s tweet
Season 5 continues the well oiled machine that we knew as TNG. Season 5 is one of the best seasons of TNG. Of course Season 5 includes “The Inner Light” and other excellent episodes such as “Power Play”, “I,Borg” and “Cause and Effect.” Read on to see how the season looks re-mastered and details of the generally excellent new bonus features, available November 19th in North America.
Along with the boxed set of Season 5, the single disc release of ”Unification”, the special 25th anniversary celebration of the two generations meeting, will also be available to purchase on November 19 in the USA. As with other single-disc releases, both parts have been edited together to make one 90-minute TV movie.
Star Trek Enterprise Season 3 is due out in the new year, January 7th, 2014 in North America. With that time fast approaching CBS has now officially sent out the details of the Blu-ray discs and the revised cover art (it still basically the same, but uses corrected Season 3 images of T’Pol and Archer). As we’ve come to expect from the Blu-ray bonus material team of Roger Lay, Jr. and Robert Meyer Burnett there is a new 3-part documentary charting the change in tone and direction that took place for Season 3 called “In a Time of War”. They also have an interesting sounding new feature called “Temporal Cold War: Declassified” which as the name implies is about the temporal cold war, it contains interviews with the writers and producers about what else might have gone on with the temporal cold war arc if Season 3 hadn’t changed directions. Plus there are new episode commentaries. Read on for the full details from the press release.
There are now a few more details of the Season 5 and Unification single-disc Blu-ray releases thanks to a new press release from CBS Home Entertainment today. Season 5’s special features include a new season 5 documentary titled “Requiem: A Remembrance of Star Trek: The Next Generation.” This two-part documentary explores the making of the series’ fifth season and focuses on the effect the passing of creator Gene Roddenberry on the show. Also exciting for fans of TNG’s music is the newest roundtable discussion documentary: “In Conversation: The Music of Star Trek: The Next Generation” which features TNG composers Ron Jones, Dennis McCarthy and Jay Chattaway. Both are due out in the US next month, November 19th to be exact. See the full details after the break.
CBS has released the trailer for the third season of Star Trek: Enterprise coming to Blu-ray in January 2014.
