Last week we reported how Paramount Home Entertainment announced they will be updating the Star Trek: Picard – The Final Season home releases with an enhanced visual effects shot not included in the original release. We now have confirmed how fans who purchased sets before the updated release can get the latest version.
Update your Picard
If you purchased Star Trek: Picard – The Final Season or Star Trek: Picard – The Complete Series on Blu-ray or DVD and your set does not include the enhanced visual effect in the season finale episode “The Last Generation” (see previous article for detail) Paramount will offer a replacement.
To get the replacement, go to the contact form for Paramount Home Entertainment Blu-ray/DVD Support. When filling out the form choose “Other” for the “Issue Type” and fill in your contact/mailing information, and then for the Issue Details provide which set you have (ie. The Final Season or The Complete Series) and which disc you’d like replaced. For example, on the Final Season Blu-ray set “The Last Generation” is on disc 3, for the DVD version of the set, it’s on disc 4.
You can order the final season of Picard at Amazon on Blu-ray for $31.95. The limited edition Steelbook has sold out and the DVD is currently out of stock. The complete series set with all three seasons is available at Amazon on Blu-ray for $59.95 and DVD for $49.99.
Picard Legacy moved to November
The update to the sets has delayed the release of the Star Trek: The Picard Legacy Collection which was originally set to be released on October 17th. Paramount has set a new release date of November 7th. Described as “the definitive release for Next Generation fans.” The limited edition set includes 54 individually numbered Blu-ray discs and unique packaging that houses every TV series and film featuring Jean-Luc Picard. That includes 7 seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, 3 seasons of Picard, and the 4 TNG feature films along with over 35 hours of special features. This limited set also includes an exclusive edition of The Wisdom of Picard featuring brand new artwork and quotes, along with a one-of-a-kind deck of playing cards, a magnet sheet featuring all of Captain Picard’s badges and four custom Chateau Picard drink coasters.
You can pre-order the Legacy Collection at Amazon for $199.95.
A couple of questions remain
For folks buying the set now, the question is how to identify the updated sets. As of now Paramount has not provided any details if there is way to tell from the packaging.
A second question pertains to international buyers, it’s not been made clear if the international sets need the same updating. It’s very likely that the sets will come with the updated scene, because the release dates are almost two months later then the US. But again, we currently have no specific confirmation.
The home video release of the third season will be available soon in these countries:
- United Kingdom – 20 November 2023 (DVD/BD/Steelbook)
- France – 15 November 2023 (DVD/BD/Steelbook)
- Germany – 16 November 2023 (DVD/BD/Steelbook)
