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!

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (June 13, 2013) – Join Captain Jonathan Archer (Scott Bakula) as he leads his crew through more thrilling adventures in sparkling high-definition when STAR TREK®: ENTERPRISE — THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON arrives on Blu-ray Disc August 20 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.
A centerpiece to the STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE — THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON BLU-RAY collection is the newly produced cast reunion feature, “In Conversation: The First Crew,” which offers fans a look at an intimate and candid discussion with members of the main cast and recurring guest stars, who reveal their most memorable stories from the set and their favorite behind-the-scenes moments. The reunion is moderated by series co-creator/executive producer Brannon Braga.
Fans will also enjoy “Uncharted Territory,” a three-part retrospective providing an inside look at the challenges faced by the writing staff and creators during the creative development of the second season, which ultimately inspired the controversial Xindi story-arc that kicks off in the season finale, “The Expanse.” In addition, a collection of newly produced commentaries by cast and crew including John Billingsley (“Phlox”), writer/co-executive producer Chris Black and Mike & Denise Okuda, among others, all make STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE — THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON a must-own for fans.
STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE recounts the adventures of the pioneers of space travel who ventured into the universe 100 years before the events of Star Trek®: The Original Series. Set in the 22nd century, in a time when interstellar travel is still in its infancy, ENTERPRISE follows Captain Archer and his crew of brave explorers as they set out to chart the galaxy on a revolutionary spacecraft and experience the wonder and mystery of the final frontier as they seek out new life and new civilizations.

I hope they will get around to release Star Trek:DS9 in Blu ray format.
Best thing about the blu ray release of ENT is that it drives down the DVD set prices. I recently found a used copy of ENT season 1 at a used music/DVD store for $13 a few weeks ago. Granted, the blu ray sets look far superior, but for my 42″ TV? Standard def fits the bill.
I forgot how many good episodes there were in season two. I’ll be picking this up later this summer.
I’m also hoping to see DS9 in Blu ray, I think most of the FX still looks good after all these years.
Matt keep up the updates: Great job.
Already ordered mine from Amazon Uk. Will be around $35 shipped to the USA
DS9 on Blu ray would be awesome! I hope they eventually get to Voyager too, but DS9 should definitely be next in line.
I know some people really hate “Night in Sickbay” and “Regeneration” but I dig ’em. “Sickbay” is a fun change of pace (and, hey, it has a lot of Porthos in it!) and “Regeneration” not only has an amazing soundtrack by Bryan Tyler (who is doing a bunch of movies now) but it really makes the Borg a bit scarier with the edge that they lost from being smacked around on “Voyager” so many times. Yes, the good ole NX-01 wins at the end but it looks like round the middle of that ep. that the Borg are gonna assimilate half the alpha quadrant!
I agree with you about “Regeneration”. That episode brought back the “relentless and (almost) unstoppable” aspect that “Voyager” had watered down. And Brian Tyler’s music was great, too.
The second season was merely okay, but it started getting really good with the last half dozen or so episodes. “Cogenitor” and “First Flight” were highly entertaining.
I hope the movement to revive “Star Trek – Enterprise” on Netflicks succeeds, but I’m not holding my breath!
Still, it would be awesome to see the crew reunited… and maybe, just maybe, the Romulan War!
I always refer to Season 2 as “Season Trip” as it seemed that every other episode focused on him. Now, I was never too fussed on Trip as a character in general. He had his moments, but he was mostly annoying to me, so that’s why I never enjoyed Season 2 much. But I have pre-ordered my copy for the sake of the collection. Plus, it has “Regeneration” which is one of my favourite episodes of Enterprise in general.
I loved Enterprise when it first aired. I grew up on TNG and DS9 but this was the first Star Trek series I’d watched from start to finish and although some of the episodes were kind of lazy and unoriginal, Scott Bakula was just genius and Jeffery Combs played his best role yet. Enterprise just reminds me of classic contemporary Trek and whilst I’d rather not see S5, I’d love to see an old age Archer in the new movie for a cameo
Finally, you too can own the second season of the series which crashed the franchise into the ground in glorious Blu-ray!
Now, see the drab costumes and sets!
Hear the monotone voices clearer than ever before!
Feel the meh, and wonder why you became a Trekkie in the first place!
Vote with your wallet if you want to see more of this.
You are a gigantic failure.
@13 You have to read that in your best Ben-Stein-saying-Bueller voice, rather than Used-Car-Selling-Announcer voice to get the most enjoyment from your most excellent pitch.
I bought the first season and watched it with all the new stuff. Everything extra was done real well and really adds to the series. I am glad to see that they did keep some of the stuff from the first issue of the DVDs. Although I do have to say that the text commentary (which we love to watch for the trivia) shows up as much smaller and hard to read unless you are sitting close, even on big flat screen. That being said, CBS/Paramount has done a great job with this and I cannot wait for the rest of the seasons.

Sony produced season 1 boxed DVD sets of WHO’S THE BOSS in 2004, for sale on retail shelves. They didn’t meet sales projections. Sony NEVER produced another season of WHO’S THE BOSS for retail shelf distribution in any format, since.
The fact that CBS keeps going through the expense of producing new retail content and boxed sets of formats of ENTERPRISE’s seasons other than DVD (which they already produced) demonstrates there’s a market for it. You may not be included in their sales projections but it is readily apparent that there are more than enough other consumers of these products to pick up your slack and it perseveres.
The series FAMILY GUY and FUTURAMA, have already proven that it is possible to return from televised cancellation with successful retail sales. This isn’t your dream, but whatever dreams you do have will not be faster nor better realized by your wasting time in futile attempts to destroy the dreams of others.
Let the consumers of these products have their dreams. Pursue your own.
More Enterprise would be great.
I know what you mean it was a true return to form of the Borg. For me me personally thats whats so agravting to me that we didnt get a season 5 of the show
One of the storylines planned for season 5 would have include the origins of the Borg Queen, with Alice Krige all set to return for the episode(s) as well.
8) Would love it if Brian Tyler was ever brought back to score one of the future Trek movies.
He really is one his generations best film & TV composers.
His scores for Fast Five and Iron Man 3 are excellent, and I really like what he contributes to Hawaii 5-0
13) What is sad is that in the amount of time it took you to think that up, you could have managed to do something ACTUALLY productive.
You don’t have to like the show, but why do you have to poo poo on it, for those who do.
I know I personally would have respected your opinon more had you simply said you didn’t enjoy the show.
But that is me what do I know. lol
I’ve been watching Enterprise on Hulu and Netflix recently. I’m finding I’m enjoying it a lot more now. I guess absence made my heart grow fonder of this series.
@ 20 Heck, I’m surprised that Tyler wasn’t brought back for more “Enterprise”! I think I read on a BBB on Trekweb years and years ago that he may have had a bit of a difference of opinion with Berman, or maybe the score took awhile to get out for the ep. But it was worth it, considering how “Best of Both Worlds” had a fantastic score for The Borg and Tyler managed to add that sinister menace back to it (Heck, he’s probably one of the reasons why the Borg are so darn scary in that ep comparatively to the latter Voyager Borg episodes)
It’s called humor. You either smile or you don’t.
#15 enjoyed my critique, which validates it.
Sorry I’m not interested in your respect, but I hope you can see the irony of you spending time telling me how my opinion is wrong.
@17, it was worth reading through all the comments to find this gem. And if you don’t mind, I might redistribute it Asa quote…..
“This isn’t your dream, but whatever dreams you do have will not be faster nor better realized by your wasting time in futile attempts to destroy the dreams of others.”
Thanks for that.
Can’t wait for 3 — the first good season of Enterprise.
I try to live by this simple quote:
“Promote what you love, instead of bashing what you hate.”
Seasons 1 & 4 of Enterprise were the best.
I ponied up $100 bucks per season when the show was released on DVD. I just can’t see doing it again. My new HP Touchsmart with Blu Ray player makes the show look pretty darn good.
Enterprise was a funny old series.
As a fan, I hated the idea of doing a prequel and for the series to focus on the events before Kirk, especially when Nemesis came out and there was the potential to do a Titan series with Frakes and co.
As the concept had turned me off before an episode was even aired, Enterprise never stood much of a chance with me. However, I now regret snubbing this series as watching this show recently has completely changed my views. I love Enterprise and would go as far as saying that it is one of my favourite Trek shows, sitting just behind DS9.
I think it was unfairly cancelled, just as it was shifting into its higher gears. Seasons three and four were fantastic, and the story lines were forming nicely with a clear build up to a confrontation with Romulus and the formation of the Federation.
I fully support Netflix’s plans of bringing ENT back for a fifth season, and sincerely hope this happens, however being a realist, I cant say that I see it being a realistic hope… just a fools hope.
29) No one can fault you for that, I will say this the HD version looks great, but totally get where your coming from.
If you get a chance check out the HD versions on Amazon prime or Netflix though the show even in streaming HD looks fantastic.
Myself I am 100 percent ok with rebuying every season on blu.
But I totaly get where your coming from.
Ditto Jay Ley, except the first part – Enterprise had me from “hello”, lol…
And no, I didn’t like the movie I just made a reference to or the actress. ick :(
I’m sure I’ll get them through some form of Digital download in the future.
I doubt we’ll be seeing DS9 or Voyager on Blu-Ray anytime soon, because they’ll have to pony up to re-do the CGI in 1080P
35 Didn’t they have to do the same thing for TNG?
Star trek is a Machine i love it! They will get to DS9 and Voyager in time.

Indeed, if only for the simple fact that the more they do it, the better they become at doing it for less, i.e. the economy of learning and the feedback loop.
