In April CBS & Paramount released the first season of Star Trek: The Original Series on Blu-ray with a note that Seasons 2 & 3 were ‘coming soon’. Now an industry trade magazine has revealed the date for Season 2. We also have news on what what Paramount Home Entertainment has planned for Comic Con.

Home Media Magazine reports that Star Trek Season Two on Blu-ray will be released September 22nd, for a retail price of $116.99 (bear in mind it will be discounted, Season One has a street price of about half that). Although the remastered Star Trek Season One was previously released on HD-DVD, it was the only season on that format. So the Blu-ray Seasons 2 & 3 will be their first time in HD. Season Two (like Season One) will feature seamless branching between the remastered digital effects and the original effects, and it will include new special features. The set is not yet available for-preorder. As for Season 3, TrekMovie sources indicate that will be out in early 2010.
TrekMovie has previously reported that there are more Star Trek titles coming out this Fall, including a set of all the TNG movies on Blu-ray and, of course, the JJ Abrams Star Trek feature (on standard DVD, and deluxe edition DVD & Blu-ray) [see previous TrekMovie story for more details]. TrekMovie sources confirm that details, images, and dates for all the upcoming Trek titles will be announced at Comic Con in San Diego, the last weekend in July. Apparently, Paramount is actually planning to make Star Trek a big part of their booth, including Trek-themed giveaways and models dressed as Orion slave girls.
TrekMovie will bring more updates on the Star Trek Blu-ray and DVD details as the become available.
