What 20 episodes?
No indication yet, but obviously the Mirror Universe will be a big part of the set and that has one TOS episode, two Enterprise episodes and five in Deep Space Nine. Other possibilities would be episodes like TNG’s "Parallels" or maybe even Voyager’s "Living Witness." There has already been a Fan Collective set on Time Travel and it contained many alternate timeline episodes like TNG’s "Yesterday’s Enterprise," and Voyager’s "Year of Hell" so it is unclear if those would be on this set.
Fan Collective series
The Alternate reality set will be the sixth ‘Fan Collective’ from Paramount. The first four (Borg, Q, Time Travel, & Klingon) were put out in 2006, with the last (Captains Log) in the summer of 2007. All of them contained a dozen or more episodes (including many two parters). The special features for the first four sets were limited to new text commentaries on a handful of episodes. However, the 2007 "Captain’s Log" set had a number of video special features with all five of Star Trek’s captains. Apparently the new set will follow suit with its own video special features
All the previous Fan Collectives are available at Amazon individually for around $31, and also in a box with all five sets included:
