    Anyone else finding it a pain to access the TNG DVD's because of the packaging? It's a two minute manuver to get a disc out, and another two minutes to put everything back together again. Maby they can use the slim cases found on Futurama volumes for easier access?

    I havn't had the money to pick up TNG, so I don't know if this has already been done.

    And DS9 comes in much more convenient cases.

    I converted all seven seasons of TNG to 7-disc alpha cases and Ric Easton's customized cover art. Ric did a fantastic job on the covers. I found the original packaging as cumbersome as you, Neil.

    Ric also created custom covers for TOS. Using 5-disc alpha cases, you can some shelf space over the original packaging of single-disc cases.

    I love the DS9 cases. As for the TNG cases, you might consider keeping some spare jewel cases around for when you are watching the series in order. Keep the discs in the easy-to-open jewels until you're done, and then put them back in the box.

    The DS9 cases may be a bit easier to work with, but the plastic outer casing isn't all that sturdy. My seasons one and two already came loose. Season 3 took a tumnle the other day, shattering the plastic inner casing of the first disc.

    I use jewelcases too when I'm watching, but I skipped this because the DS9 was so accessible. Next season I'll be using the jewelcases again, that's for sure.
