    Damn, $109 instead of $99 like the last three releases.

    Oh mercy... here we go again with those bonus discs from Best Buy!

    Is there any chance that we might see a compilation of all these featurettes on one single disc as a companion disc to the DS9 DVD sets? (Or the ones done for the TNG Seasons 4-7 for that matter?)

    Bill, no there will not be a compliation of these discs. That's why they're exclusives. and $109 is the regular price as always, and week 1 it'll go down to $99 on sale

    One of the reasons I ask is because on the Region 2 DVD release of DS9 Season 3, the extra featurette on the birth of the Defiant is included in the main set, yet it's not included in the main Region 1 set that's out in general release, but Best Buy included that as a bonus disc. This was reported on a number of Star Trek fan websites about the overseas release of DS9 Season 3.

    It really is a shame for completists tracking down all of the missing information to have to go to Best Buy to get the sets just to get the bonus information, when it's included on other releases around the world. That's why it would make sense to compile them all into a special release for those who are not able to get the bonus discs.

    Bill, again the point of an exclusive is that it's exclusive. Tehy're not going to collect it because otherwise there is no incentive for people to shop at BB for the sets

    I think if I were a retailer who did not have access to the special edition disks I would think twice about even stocking them. I personally think it's despicable for one retailer to be favored above all others.

    They're not favored above all others. They pay a great deal of money for the exclusive bonuses. If others want to pay that, I'm sure that Paramount would be happy to produce additional material for them.

    Jeff, you mentioned once finding these cheaper from a Canadian e-tailer. Any one in particular?

    Look around for some coupons (there's always $5 off coupons around) for Amazon.ca and you can score it as low as $80/set depending on the exchange rate

    Can't wait for Season 4 plus the bonus disc. I just finished Season 3 this past weekend and I am eager to continue. Glad to hear that the bonus disc is more substantial this time around.

    That's my problem, Joseph. If I could wait, I could find the set with the bonus disc for cheaper than $99. But, I can't wait. I may try the Amazon.ca route, or I may just accept I'm paying for the bonus disc and get it day-and-date at BB. [​IMG]

    At this time, Suncoast (and presumably Media Play, etc.) still carry the bonus disc as well.

    Suncoast assures me that they WILL have the bonus disk. For $99 pre-order and TRIPLE POINTS last weekend they can often make the best deal.

    Just got my set from BestBuy.com today, it's really a shame this great disc doesn't come with all sets. This disc is by far the most loaded bonus disc up to this point, clocking in at 48 minutes. Here's the breakdown:

    1. Bob Blackman's Designs Of The Future - costumes featurette (6:50)

    2. Sketchbook: Jim Martin (7:46)

    3. Deep Space Nine Chronicles - 34 episode-specific mini-featurettes (5 from Season One, 11 from Season 2, 11 from Season 3, 7 from Season 4), each around one minute.

    I've sampled a little of each one and all I can say so far is I really hope the rest of the bonus discs are like this.

    Up to this point they haven't been worth the purchase. Some of the Next Generation bonuses were like 10mins long.

    For the best price check e-bay. I bought Season 1-3 for $200 which is about $65 each. I just bought season 4 for $70 shipped. All are new in original packaging and work perfect. Plus I got the bonus disk with season 3 which is the only one I wanted. You can find great deals on these set just keep looking.

    The Best Buy by me had NO season 4 sets with any kind of bonus disc.

    I asked the blue shirt and after scratching his head for a while, said there isn't a bonus disc in season 4. [​IMG]

    I said "Screw it" and drove down the street to Costco and got the set for $85
