[rant]DS9 Comes to DVD in February[/rant]
Star Trek fans wondering what to do with life once all seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation on DVD have been released come December can take heart: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine on DVD is following right behind.

Paramount Home Entertainment has announced that the entire series of DS9, plus a Gamma Quadrant's worth of special extras, will be issued on DVD in 2003 with Season One due on February 25th.

Season One of DS9 on DVD will come in a six-disc collector's box set containing, naturally, all of the Season One episodes, along with new, never before seen featurettes. New seasons of DS9 will be available every other month.

The DS9 DVD's feature newly remixed Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and exclusive retrospective featurettes. Fans who pick up the TNG Seasons Six and Seven will be able to get a peek at the upcoming DS9 DVD's, as special trailers have been added to the TNG sets.

The DS9 DVD Contents are as follows:

Disc 1: "Emissary," "Past Prologue," "A Man Alone"

Disc 2: "Babel," "Captive Pursuit," "Q-Less," "Dax"

Disc 3: "The Passenger," "Move Along Home," "The Nagus," "Vortex"

Disc 4: "Battle Lines," "The Storyteller," "Progress," "If Wishes Were Horses"

Disc 5: "The Forsaken," "Dramatis Personae," "Duet," "In the Hands of the Prophets"

Disc 6: Special Features, including the feature Deep Space Nine: A Bold Beginning, Crew Dossier: Kira Nerys, Michael Westmore's Aliens: Season One, Secrets of Quark's Bar, Alien Artifacts: Season One, Deep Space Nine Sketchbook, Deep Space Nine Chronicles, Section 31 Hidden Files and a Photo Gallery.

So DS9 fans should take January to clear off more shelf space, because on February 25, the wormhole opens.

As much as I love The Next Generation, I haven't bought any of the DVD sets because I can still turn on TNN almost any night of the week and see two or four episodes.

But DS9 quickly disappeared from the airwaves following the conclusion of its seven year run. Not even any of my local affiliates carry it in syndication. So these new sets will be a priority for me.

BTW--has anyone heard of any plans to release the entire Next Gen. series in one money-saving mega-set?

I don't know - it's not the simple design of the TNG sets, but it doesn't look as ridiculously overpackaged, either.

Looking forward to getting the sets and Voyager when it is released but I must agree in regards to the packaging that it does look ugly. I'll bet the R2 packaging will be very nice though......

I'll take the ugly packaging, but they better lower the price since it doesn't look like they're using (wasting) anywhere near the amount of material as they did on the TNG sets!

God! The more I look at it the more butt-ugly it gets! Posted Image

I did'nt see this thread and I Posted a similar thread a Plea for Rick Easton to call paramount quick. These are the worst looking and designed cases ever. Who at paramount are coming up with these awful designs? Ric stuff is miles above anything they've done

It's different. I like it.

What I really like is the inside... it is such a pain in the ass to access individual discs in the TNG sets.

I agree that the box is ugly, but I'm not going to complain. I do like the disc holders better this way.

I do hope that there is an MSRP that yeilds a lower cost this go around. The TNG fiasco was unfortunate.

I've accepted the fact that no studio other than FOX will ever use a multi DVD case which holds more than 3-disc's. I understand that a simple booklet and slip cover are just to difficult for studio's to do. But with all the resources available I would have thought they would have come up with something a little more appealing. Nevertheless I am glad the disc's are coming out. Ugly artwork would never prevent me from owning any Star Trek disc.

John, since they sold a ton of TNG Box sets with No MSRP I don't see them changing this, Unfortunately

Sorry Paramount, I'm going to have to pre-judge on art alone here. You have the right idea, but 1- The logo NEEDS TO GO. Put the real logo on there. 2- It should be white/silver etching on bronze metallic or the black, not this rainbow monstrocity.

They'd better not unless they're also refunding the difference to those who bought them individually, as they were released. Lots of angry fans otherwise.

Hmmm....Paramount is not wasting any time on the DS9 release. I for one will be picking them up- I especially look forward to the last few seasons involving the Dominion War story arc- those are the best sci-fi storylines to ever come on television IMHO.

Yes, I agree that the box art is not what it could be, but it's the DVD and episodes that's important here. It looks like they'll be doing as ggod a job on these discs as they did with TNG, which will make me happy.

Bring em on... Posted Image

The only thing I like better about the packaging is that you can get to the discs easier, kinda like what Babylon 5 is doing.

I am psyched that it will be coming out, though. In many ways I like DS9 better than TNG.

I may decide to do my own design after a few of the sets are released. I think I will need a break after TNG!
