‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Season 2 Arrives On Blu-ray/DVD In July

The second season of Star Trek: Lower Decks is coming home this summer.

Lower Decks Season 2 arrives July 12

The 2-disc collection of Lower Decks season two arrives on July 12 on Blu-ray and DVD and features over an hour of bonus content including exclusive featurettes and commentaries.

The ten-episode second made good on its promise to be “bigger, funnier and Star Trekkier than ever before.” The season received critical praise here at TrekMovie.com and elsewhere in the press, and even garnered a Hugo Award nomination. Joining the main cast for season two were a number of guest stars including Star Trek vets Jonathan Frakes and Robert Duncan McNeill.

Excellent!

YEEESSSS!!

Definitely getting this.

It’s about the only Star Trek I can stomach these days.

So glad they’re doing audio commentaries now! With this, Lower Decks joins TOS, TNG, and Discovery in the ranks of Star Trek shows whose first-season Blu-ray sets lacked audio commentaries but which started getting them with their second season sets. I wonder why that is (someone else in the comments at TrekCore suggested it might be a budgeting thing)?

Anyway, I’ll be happily grabbing this to go with my S1 set.

Budgeting. And just the general shift away from physical media and less interest in producing bonus features. Which as someone who grew up going over every bonus feature and listened to every commentary track out there, seeing that there are tracks for these particular episodes of Lower Decks fills me with so much joy. I’m hoping for Futurama level commentaries.

I mean, I figured, but it’s just odd that this is the fourth show in this franchise where they started doing audio commentaries with the S2 sets after eschewing them for S1. And really, I’m just glad they’re still doing physical releases at all. I hope they keep it up for Prodigy (and that that show, too, gets commentaries, even though I imagine the core intended target audience for that particular series is probably even less likely to listen to them than the average person).

Is this an international release this time? Last year it was North America, then 6 months until it came out everywhere else (and in Australia they didn’t do a Bluray at all, only DVD)

As far as I know season 1 came out late on disc because the show had also premiered late on Amazon Prime. Basically the whole release schedule for both streaming and discs was shifted internationally. Season 2 didn’t have such a delay for its international streaming debut so, hopefully, the discs won’t be delayed, either.

Lower Decks Borg had me howling. Not a word spoken, not a single move, and hilarious for all the few minutes it stretched out.
