    It appears that Paramount is going to repeat the TNG season set release schedule with DS9 by starting in March & apparently releasing them every other month. I'm supposing that Paramount already had at least the first box set pressed & ready to go, so why wait until March?

    they probably don't have it pressed, just the masters ready. If they were to arrange a pressing date right this minute and solicit the discs, it would be almost March before you got them anyway

    If they had made the decision to sell this series in 2003 why wait so long to have the disks ready?

    Because they press according to the orders they get with overstock to cover expected reorders.

    Is there any hint that footage cut for "excessive violence" or just because of hourly-tv time constraints will be restored to or included (separately) with the episodes (such as DS9 #96 "To the Death")?

    No details whatsoever yet

    Frankly, given Paramount's track record with such things I'm going to say no. Really, it's not necessary, I think they communicated the violence very well

    Jeff_HR: Marketing is a consideration, too. We have two more TNG boxes to go and then the first DS9 set arrives two months after that. Why would Paramount want to throw its own product into competition with itself? JB
