    Dear Mr. Blythe, and fellow TOS fans who bought all the DVDs:

    I have the perfect solution to make all those happy (like me) who purchased the entire TOS DVD collection, without extras... and also relieve Paramount some anxiety over not releasing the series in box sets.

    Paramount should issue a supplimentary TOS DVD with extras only... all the deleted scenes, bloopers, documentaries, interviews, storyboards, artwork, behind-the-scenes footage, scripts, and everything else we've been clamoring for. Sure, we'd lose out on the benefit of commentary, but this is the next best thing!

    I think this is a better solution for all of us, including Paramount, than re-issuing the series in box sets. We loyal fans have put a LOT of money into buying TOS on DVD, just as Paramount put a lot of work into remastering these gems.

    What do all of you think?

    We are not reissuing the series in box sets. We are also not considering your idea of a separate bonus disc. Moving on to Next Gen.

    My lack of knowledge indicates that I'm not a true fan, but what is TOS? Something Star Trek-related??

    TOS is just an abreviation for The Original Series.

    Martin,

    Thank you very much for the prompt reply. Even though I'd love to see an extras DVD, I know your plate is very full, and at least I know what to expect now.

    Thanks for a great run of TOS DVDs. I will enjoy them for years to come.

    --Daron

    I still refuse to buy the TOS DVDs. At least Paramount is doing the right thing with TNG.
