This will not be an official review. Our reviewer, Scott Kimball, should have the official review up within days. I did want to take this opportunity to give you the very first look at this set as well as my initial impressions of the packaging. Since I have yet to even pop these discs in my player I don't have any thoughts on the transfer, menus or otherwise. Stay tuned to this thread and I'll post more screenshots amd briefly comment on the transfers. Once again, I want our official reviewer to let you know his impressions. Arriving in a hard plastic, yellow pill-shaped casing, Paramount has certainly found an inventive means to deliver a reincarnation of Star Trek TOS in a space saving design. The packaging boasts that these are remastered episodes presented with stunning 5.1 audio. I did check to see if the original MONO tracks were included, and as far as I can see, they are not. The two audio options are 5.1 and Dolby Surround. Upon removing the plastic shrinkwrap I found the pillbox split off its hinges. Not certain if it purposely ships this way, but it was very easy to snap the durable casing back together. Once you separate the pillbox you find a 1 2/4" thick box that contains the discs inside. The disc packaging pulls out and opens to a 8-panel disc housing connected by a single hinge. A total of 8 discs carry the complete 29 episodes of the first series. A small booklet inside unfolds to a 6-page two-sided episode guide that gives brief descriptions of each show. Noticeably missing here is original stardate and airdate, but you'll find that information printed on the face of each disc. The booklet also gives some brief insight into the changing face of the Romulans and their history. Inside the set are coupons for $25 off the Vegas Hilton Borg Invasion 4-D and a $35 coupon off collectables from Master Replicas. Overall, I found while the packaging is indeed interesting, it seems cheaply made. The plastic casing is durable, but once you open it up, the DVD casing seems sort of flimsy. I found some small plastic pieces rolling around inside that don't seem to come from anywhere. Give me some time to look at the menus and get you some screen shots.
