    There is no front for obvious reasons...

    Here is the front (along with the insert)

    I love the way they try to promote the film - "one of their most astonishing voyages ever, all the fun and excitement fans have come to expect".

    Ahem - fans have seen the film, they know it's awful. Stop trying to convince us otherwise.

    I've always been astonished with the wretchedness of this film.

    I'm also astonished that this franchise has fallen so far from grace that it should be documented in the Bible.

    I am not astonished that they chose not to allow Shatner to revisit this title as a Director's cut. That would almost be something that would please the dedicated fans. This will definitely be one of the ST SEs that I will not buy (but might rent just to hear/read the commentaries).

    I havn't seen this for ages and I'm actually quite excited about the release. I think both the commentary and text commentary should be really good on this film.

    I do hope that, at least, the deleted scenes will be worth something.

    Man, when Paramount is churning out crappy inserts by simply rehashing what's on the back cover of details, instead of having some good information on the inserts (for example, the Robert Wise commentary on the insert for the Star Trek: TMP DVD), and all they do is smack a picture on there, and nothing else on the front and back cover beyond the DVD title logo, it's time someone at Paramount's home entertainment division starts looking for work elsewhere.

    Besides, they got the photo wrong again! That's the cast photo from Star Trek VI. That's three Star Trek movie SE DVDs they've gotten wrong photos slapped on for no particular reason.

    If you're going to have a good insert, put some meat into it - like a mini version of the script, a screen saver CD-ROM, notes on the making of the film, restoring the film, something of interest. I will give this to Artisan: with their Ultimate and Extreme Editions of T2, they put in some really good insert booklets filled with meat in them. And the insert booklet from Fox's The Abyss SE had some good meat in it as well. Paramount could learn some lessons here.

    As for the deleted scenes, the only one that seems to be worth anything here is the complete dialog with the three diplomats. The other three scenes appear to be mere snippets. At four minutes, that's not enough real meat to add to the meal.

    And not only that, but in that particular photo Sulu is ranked a Captain. And check out the Enterprise set behind the cast. That's the set that appeared in VI. The set in V looked like a cross between the movie set from IV and the bridge set from TNG.

    Cool your jets everyone. I've already alerted Paramount to the problem with the insert photo and have assurances from the powers that be that it will be fixed in time for the release.

    Oh boy, motion menus!

    Oh and Bill, here are the DVD's where the wrong artwork has been used.

    Star Trek - The Motion Picture - The Director's Edition: the photo of the Enterprise on the cover of the booklet is from Star Trek II. I think you can even see the Genesis planet in the background.

    Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan: the photo of Kirk on the back cover is from Star Trek III.

    Star Trek III - The Search for Spock: the photo of the crew on trial is from Star Trek IV.

    And now we have this new insert with the wrong photo on it. That makes four mistakes, not three. [​IMG]

    And I just remembered... in the insert for Nemesis, the Picard pic they used was from the TV series and not the film, so that would make five errors. Have mercy! [​IMG]

    Yeah, I told them about the Nemesis mistake a few months prior and nothing was done about that one [​IMG] So I wouldnt hold out much hope for this mistake either...

    Well Trek V did use the TNG sets... (so did Trek VI, but they did a better job redressing them).

    My favorite feature is "Commentary by ... Liz Shatner, author of the book Captain's Log: William Shatner's personal account of the Making of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier".
