    I'm in for TOS Season 2 and First Contact on Blu-ray. Kudos to Paramount for making FC available separately since it's the only good TNG film IMO.

    I wished that were true of the other three films, so far I've avoided purchasing "Nemesis".

    I am glad to see First Contact being offered separately, too. That is the only NG film I care to buy on BD.

    The Frakes/Sirtis commentary on Insurrection should be a hoot.

    I wonder if we'll get the Generations trailers this time.

    Frakes commentary for Insurrection! Yay! If it's half as good as the bizarre one he did for First Contact then I'll be happy.

    Why no 7.1 sound for the TNG flicks though?

    The 5.1 refers to the DVD's methinks as they do not get 7.1 sound so the press release is wrong as it should list 7.1 for the BD's like it does for the TOS S2. As for Frakes his 1st commentary for ST9 in 1998 was apparently censored so I wonder how much makes it to disc (not much I bet!) or if this is a new recording.

    TOS Season 2 BD set for $79.99 MSRP??? Woo-Freakin'-Hoo! I wonder what Amazon will sell it for? I'm so in. And also for the TNG BD set. And the '09 Film. It's a good year to be a trekkie!

    I never heard anything about Sirtis contributing to Insurrection previously, so I expect that this commentary is all-new.

    It should be one disc less than Season 1, and Season 3 should be one less than Season 2. I was wondering if they'd adjust the pricing. I think the DVD sets were all priced the same. Season 1 BD sold for $64.99 at Amazon. Anybody remember what the MSRP was?

    Actually, both season 1 & 2 will have 7 discs.

    29 'hour' episodes for season 1 (one disc had five episodes)
    26 for two
    26 for three (including two versions of the 'Cage')

    They just had to put something Borg on the cover even though they are only in one movie. Should have gone with just the E and a planet like the first 6 movie set. I'm so freaking tired of the Borg thanks to VOY and I hope they never appear in Trek again.

    They are the most popular TNG villain. And, when you look at the first 6 movies, you can make a case for the Klingons or Khan being the most well known. But with the TNG flicks, you're not putting Shinzon on the cover.

    Just my .02.

    Season 2 and First Contact for me. Not much of a fan of the other Next Gen movies.

    More details from Comic Con emerge.

    TOS S2 is a 7 disc set. The DS9 and TAS Tribble episodes are included. So does that mean DS9 and TAS are in HD? I guess so!

    Here's a copy and paste from trekmovie's article. The pricing is in conflict with the press release above. I'll have to look into that, it must not be updated at Amazon:
    Pre-order availableStar Trek Season Two on Blu-ray arrives September 22nd and is now available for pre-order at Amazon for $90.99 (discounted from $129.99).

    Here's a link to trekmovie:

    Nelson, the article just speculated that the set could contain the various tribble episodes. I'm sure they will, but they'll be SD extras. DS9 doesn't even exist in HD, but TAS does, it would be nice to at least have that.

    I also just posted this in the dedicated TOS S2 thread, but this press release lists the MSRP for S2 at $79.99, mistake? Like I said in the other thread, I paid $60 for Season 1, and wont pay one cent more for Season 2. Hell I can walk into a Best Buy and get S1 for less than Amazon's pre-order price here.
