Very good BD and DVD cover. Stellboook – not so much, even though it gives all the love to the Cerritos.

I’m sure this data is out there somewhere – as studio’s keep kicking out these DVD’s and Blu-Rays, is there anyway to see how these releases sell? It’s never occured to me to buy this stuff, when I can just log on to P+ and watch it. I get there are special features, but that isn’t something of particular interest. So, who’s the market for this stuff?

I’m sure there are a few Star Trek completists who want boxes of everything. My guess is that the studios are no longer pressing nearly as many copies of this stuff as they used to. If they can sell 1000 of them, they’ll press 1000 of them, something like that. The days of super-wide DVD releases in the millions are long over, though. Hopefully the niche market holds up – it’s good to have these physical releases around.

Yes, it’s easy to stream through P+ and I do subscribe, however I own all the Trek series / movies on the highest quality home media possible so I like to add them to my collection, personally, streaming is good but believe it or not blu ray is better quality than streamig.

I just don’t find the difference to be noticeable enough to be worth spending money on a blu-ray.

I’m not surprised that the quality is better — and it totally makes sense to have your own copy and not to be subject to the whims of streaming services’ deals (ex. Is Trek leaving Netflix now that P+ is around?).

Alas, I haven’t owned a DVD/BluRay player — or a computer with a CD/DVD drive — in well over a decade, so I’ve got no way to play the darned things.

Okay, so I buy them. Yes, I’m a completist, as Marcelo mentioned in his comment. But also, I feel that streaming is very ephemeral… if I relying on that completely, I’m an internet outage away from not having access to any of my favourite stuff. That might not happen much in big cities, but I live in a rural area where such things can and do happen. Also, when you live in the country the streams aren’t always top quality.

I’m not paranoid… I don’t buy *all* my favourite media on disc, but I do prioritize Star Trek releases. And the bonus features are worth it to me. The Discovery season two set, for example, had a nearly feature-length documentary on the making of the finale, and that alone was worth the price.

I’m a bit perplexed by DVD production at this point, the Blu-Ray format is nearing 15 years old at this point. Blu Ray players have been inexpensive for a number of years now. I think I spent less than $40 on my last one. I kind of get older material that wouldn’t benefit from the Blu-Ray format still being put out on DVDs (primarily older sitcoms from the 60s-90s), but I don’t know what kind of market a new film or television series has on DVD.

The big selling point of physical media, for me in particular, is getting content that isn’t easily available on streaming. There’s a ton of pre-1970s movies that are hard to come by (though it’s getting a bit easier). There’s also the safety that owning a physical copy will ensure that I can still watch something for years to come even if the film/show “disappears” from all streaming services.

Fantastic that we’re still getting advertisements for DVD/Blu-rays these days. Oh, I miss the heyday oh physical media.

Does anybody know if this will get an international release on blu-ray? Amazon only lists the Amazon Prime streaming option in my country.

Amazon probably has an exclusive one year streaming deal with LD like they did with Picard. So we’ll probably see a release no less than a year after it’s original Amazon Prime release date so January 2022 or thereabouts.

The US blu-ray will probably be region free though just as all the other blu-ray releases have been.

Loved this show to death! If I still actually bought Blu-Rays would snatch it up in a heartbeat! Can’t wait to rewatch it from beginning to end (except episode 6 which I hated). But overall a really fun show and the only show I can honestly say I enjoyed throughout with these new shows. Season 2 can’t come soon enough!

Why did you hate ep 6?

I really hated the whole Badgey sub plot And it felt a little too violent for me. But I will rewatch it so my mind may change. It’s the only episode I only watched once. All the others I watched 2-3 times so it tells you how much I hated it.

No disrespect to those of you that like it, each to their own, but am I the only one who thinks Lower Decks isn’t funny?

Yes. You are the only one.

Yep, you’re all alone on that.

I follow the link to amazon, not only is the preorder option nowhere to be found, but it appears as product temporarily out of stock. How can it be out of stock if it hasn’t come out yet? I hope they include at least spanish subtitles, which were missing in The Short Treks blu ray and the Picard Season 1 blu ray.

BTW, same thing happens if I search for Discovery Season 3….
