Star Trek: The Original Series “Origins” Blu-ray review September 10, 2013by Matt Wright , Filed under: DVD/Blu-ray,Review,Star Trek Into Darkness,TOS Remastered , comments closed
To coincide with the release of Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-ray, CBS is offering up a new “best of” TOS Blu-ray disc release. This includes various “prime universe” episodes that are related to the characters or aliens seen in Into Darkness in some way. It naturally includes “Space Seed” for the introduction of Khan and “The Cage” for a look at Pike as captain, and more. There is a little bit of new content on this disc, there are new video introductions recorded by Rod Roddenberry.DVD/Blu-ray,TNG Remastered , comments closed
While we expected Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 5 to be the next up on the Blu-ray slate, we weren’t sure if CBS would do a single-disc release this time, since the Season 5/6 cliffhanger of “Time’s Arrow” is hardly a fan favorite. The most logical choice, that many had been speculating, is the two-part 25th anniversary celebration, “Unification”, featuring the return of original Trek legend Leonard Nimoy and his character Spock. We don’t have full details yet, but there is new partial information about both releases. Both are expected to be available on November 19th for the US and Canada.
UPDATE Sept. 9 – CBS has posted a video trailer for Unification

After much pre-release hoopla, we have our review copy of the Blu-ray of J.J. Abrams Star Trek Into Darkness.
In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.
As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
Read on for our review of the Blu-ray release.

We also have a list of which retailers will have exclusives with their Into Darkness Blu-ray copies.DVD/Blu-ray,Editorial,Star Trek Into Darkness , comments closed
When the details of the Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray discs were released last month, there was a big fan outcry wondering what happened to a fully loaded version with extras, like we got with Star Trek (2009)? The DVD version fared even worse, being a totally barebones release. Friend of TrekMovie, Bill Hunt from The Digital Bits, has that answer. It turns out that a plethora of bonus features do exist… it’s just that Paramount doesn’t want them all in one place. They are being used for retailer and digital download vendor exclusives.
UPDATED 9/2/2013 with even more details thanks to TrekCore’s diligence.

Star Trek: Enterprise – Season 2 Blu-ray review August 15, 2013by Matt Wright , Filed under: DVD/Blu-ray,ENT,Review , comments closed
Conventional Trekker wisdom says that Enterprise didn’t get good until Season 3, but as I looked over Season 2′s episodes I was a little bit surprised to see how many episodes I looked forward to revisiting. There are some very good episodes nestled throughout Season 2, though the less said about “Precious Cargo”, the better. As Scott Bakula says in the cast reunion feature on the set, about half-way through season 2 things changed for the better. I’m inclined to agree. Read on for the full review of Enterprise Season 2 on Blu-ray!

Season 4 is the start of the well oiled machine that we knew as TNG, coming off the success of Season 3 and the attention of using the cliffhanger format for “The Best of Both Worlds”, Season 4 is the first season to have all of the production staff that would be there through the series end. Season 4 contains a lot of fan favorites such as Family, Brothers, Data’s Day, The Wounded, The Drumhead, Qpid, and Redemption.

The dates for the U.S. home video release of JJ Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness have been announced. It comes earlier than expected.

The official announcement has been made of the second season of Enterprise in high definition on Blu-ray. The clear standout of the set looks to be “In Conversation: The First Crew” where the Roger Lay Jr. the producer of the Enterprise sets has managed to get the main cast together for a chat. If this is anything like the great conversational interviews done for TNG and ENT Season 1 we should be in for a treat!
