    Found this on "another forum"; no explanation of its source. For all I know it's someone's doodlings, but I thought it looked authentic and I should share it:

    Looks quite nice. BTW you can only see the picture if you are signed in on that forum [​IMG] I wish Paramount in the US would offer the R2 Plastic style boxsets which look great IMO.

    Didn't realize that there would be a problem, Spero. I modified my post to link to the original art, so that it A) goes to the source, and B) uses the on-the-fly-shrink trick so that it's not wider than 400 pixels (the original pic is 800 pixels across). Should be easier to see on lower-res screens than David Allum's full-size pic post.
    Thanks to both of you for the assist! [​IMG]

    I'd like to see what the front of that case looks like! Also the first season of DS9 had 19 episodes (20 hours counting the 2 hour opener) so I doubt they would take up seven discs.

    Looks cool!

    I noticed something that it a bit odd. There is a picture of the Defiant on there. They don't have the defiant in the first season.

    Still, I can't wait.

    Remember, this could still be fan art. The combadge isn't right for Season 1 either, is it? I'm too distracted with a medical issue for my son to go look it up, so someone please remind me.

    It's from a professional design firm. Notice the CD sized packaging, they have a box for NextGen as well. Whether or not these are proposed designs or real is another question

    And yup, DS9 S1 should only be 5 discs unfortunately

    Will that one be flying off the shelves? [​IMG] I assume it's not coming anytime soon, considering the amount of time Paramount is stretching the release over....and the sequels packaging looks different than the current version - is the R2 packaging not silver?

    Dave, using HTML shrinking technique's for images is not a good plan as it still loads the whole image up unfortunately. [​IMG]
    If you have MS Office then one of the tools (not always installed as standard) is MS Photo Ed which will allow you to easily resize stuff...presuming you have some webspace to stick that image, of course!!
    It doesn't actually make it clear what season of DS9 this box could represent, does it? Maybe its a later one, hence the Defiant and Logo, etc...
    P.S. Hope your son's okay.

    The shuttle-box above is the picture of the announced box. The actual box in stores look a little bit different. It look's like crap:

    My son's fine now, guys. He had an ingrown nail that was getting infected. It's been cut and drained now, and he's on antibiotics for a coupla days. Thanks for the well wishes.
    As far as the resizing of the pic goes, I do it all the time. I just didn't want to host the pic this time, as I am near full for a coupla days on my personal webspace. My main concern was just getting it to fit on an HTF post without buggering up the lower-res users. Cheers for the advice, though!
    PS - that shuttlecraft box looks Godawful! [​IMG]

    Seeing the mock up of the DS9 packing makes me think of the European packaging of TNG sets.

    Do you ever think they'll ever make the plastic cases available here in the US.

    You would think that with all the Trek fans they would sell a lot of the cases if they made them available as a mail order item.

    I know I would buy them if they were available, would anyone else?

    Patrick, it doesn't look good

    The only consolation is that I've seen several UK members complaining that the hinges are flimsy
