    I wonder if it will have footage of Terry Farrell in the TNG-style Trill makeup. Anyway, I noticed they've tweaked the packaging (the big "DS9" is gone) - hopefully that means they'll be packaged like Buffy and Law & Order rather than the pain-in-the-ass covers TNG had.

    As to the $10 price increase... Well, demand's not going to be as high as it was for TNG. Still, I wish they could get the prices down to Fox's levels.

    Actually, I'm betting that $109 is their everyday price, NOT the sale price. Don't forget how they like to hide them

    FYI, the price is down to $99.99 with free shipping, like TNG was.

    Ric, that is odd. It's not even a case of using a shot from a later season as everyone else has season 1 hair.

    It's possible they'll be usuing that same shot for all 7 seasons so Worf would fit it for the last four seasons and Jadzia would be out of place for season 7 if that's the case.

    If it is the same shot for all seasons, Kira and Sisko's hair will be out of place on all future releases.

    I'm assuming its just an early mock-up and does not represent the official insert.

    I doubt that the panoramic shot of the DS0 cast at BB.com will be the actual one included in any of the sets. If I recall, BB had a page for the TNG DVDs, and it had a panoramic shot of the cast that wasn't used in any of the sets. Worf is probably on the page in order to stir interest in TNG fans who never saw much of DS9, and may be on the fence as to whether or not they will buy the sets.

    Good job by Best Buy on the bonus disc. This disc is not glued to back this time but placed in between the box and the back sheet so you can easily get it out. Also, the disc comes in a plastic case instead of the usual slip, so it's better protected.
    Looking forward to Season 2!

    This is gonna make my decision a little tougher. Being a completist, I love the bonus discs, but are they really worth the extra 20 bucks?

    I'll get the first one from Best Buy, I'll have to see about the others.
