    Looks like DVDAnswers.com has posted screenshots for the new Star Trek Voyager Season 1 menus (can't post the URL, not enough posts).

    dvdanswers.com/index.php?r=0&s=1&c=3260&n=1&burl=

    An improvement on the DS9 menus, but still nowhere near the excellent TNG ones.

    And while we're on the subject, can anyone explain why the 'Mount haven't announced release dates for Season 5+? Some have suggested its because Voyager was shot in widescreen from that point onwards. Could this make a difference to release dates?

    It's most likely because they know how bad Voyager's reputation is and they are waiting to see how well the early seasons sell before planning anything beyond season four.

    They probably chose season four as the last planned season to see whether the Baywatch factor (Seven of Nine) will increase sales for that season.

    Doesn't make sense as to why they took out the animated episode screens. Those menus are pretty lame.

    All seven seasons have got their release date in Europe:
    Season 1: 3. may 2004
    Season 2: 5. july 2004
    Season 3: 6. september 2004
    Season 4: 1. november 2004
    Season 5: 3. january 2005
    Season 6: 7. march 2005
    Season 7: 2. may 2005

    The region 2 version comes with an extra DVD containing two episodes from TOS, probably a preview for the TBA TOS season sets. Also region 2 gets the bonus DVD, that you can only buy at Best Buy in the US, included with the rest of the bonus features on disc 5...a bit unfair if you ask me (they did the same thing with DS9).

    DS9 didn't have them, either, so TNG is the oddball. [​IMG]

    The only thing I don't much like about the menus is all the Voyagers on the episode selection screen. Maybe if they're spinning around in "model mode," it'll be okay.

    The menus have a bit more positive effect when you see them in motion.

    Now, I know that schedules are subject to change, and the insert in the Voyager packaging was probably printed awhile ago... BUT:

    The insert indicates Voyager's release "throughout 2004."

    The insert also says to look for TOS in Fall / Winter 2004. (nice to see that in writing)

    I'll have my review posted on Friday. I've watched about half of the episodes so far.

    That explains the delay. Paramount plans to release TOS boxsets (hooray!) around the time Seasons 5 - 7 would be due. It's likely their schedule is so crowded they can't give exact dates that far ahead.

    By this time next year my Trek DVD collection should be complete [​IMG]

    Seasons 5, 6 and 7 were shot in widescreen? That's news to me.

    "Seasons 5, 6 and 7 were shot in widescreen?" - Probably the same way that B5 was "always meant" to be in widescreen...

    I've never heard of 5, 6, and 7 being in widescreen, either.

    Daniel: any sources on this?

    Scott, I don't have a source on this as it was a rumour that's been doing the rounds. The last place I heard it mentioned was on TrekWeb.com's BBS.

    Anyone know a site that lists the sales on these once they are released?
    I'd like to know if people will actually shell out over $100.00 for this show.

    Paramount confirmed that it would be arriving this year a while back. Haven't heard anything recently though.
