If you have the recently released Star Trek Season One Blu-ray set, then you actually have more content headed your way via BD Live (an optional part of Blu-ray discs that allows for extra content and interactive features to be downloaded or streamed over a high-speed Internet connection). Beginning this week CBS will be posting brand new video bonus material into the Star Trek Season One Portal, available exclusively to those with the Season One Set.
Using their Season One Blu-ray discs, fans will have access to brand new bonus video including roundtable discussions with special effects producers Mike and Denise Okuda, Dave Rossi and Niel Wray, as well as David Gerrold, Tribble inventor and writer of the fan-favorite "Trouble with Tribbles" episode. Trekkies can get the experts’ take on the Season One Blu-ray bonus features and what they are looking forward to in Season Two.
Roundtable with Wray, Okudas, Rossi and Gerrold available this week on BD Live
Since the release of the Season One set (which got a rave review at TrekMovie), CBS has added other bonus material via BD Live, including the ‘Red Shirt Logs’ Easter Eggs from the DVD release and a report from FedCon.

More to come
CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment are also planning a Tribble extravaganza for the upcoming Season Two BD release. That set will be out sometime in the fall, but CBS have not yet set the date officially, but TrekMovie expects it to be in September. Official announcements of Paramount’s and CBS’s future Star Trek Blu-ray and DVD releases should be coming later this month at Comic Con.
