    I know it is not official. But, it is pretty close to official. I cannot tell you how excited I am that it will be coming to dvd. I have been holding back from watching them in sydication. The next time I see them will be on pristine quality dvd.

    I think its pretty official as there is a ad in the new Star Trek Magazine for the last TOS dvd which has the Cage on it , and has a small bubble which says Look for the Next Generation DVD season collectors sets coming March 2002 :) I guess thats official

    I just wanted to say HELL YEAH, ST:TNG on DVD is going to be awesome. I hope they put some effort into providing good transfers.

    Also excited, but I hate to think of the many hundreds I spent on the Columbia House VHS complete collection, now moldering in the basement...

    Sell it on ebay! Seriously. I sold a lot of them on eBay a while back, in lots of three. Didn't get the $24.95 each I paid for em, but it's money towards the DVDs....

    I sold all my B5 laserdiscs on ebay for over $600. And that was only 1/2 of the show. They never released the other half, so it would have been close to $1300 for the entire series on laser. Bring on the dvds. I plan on buying all the seasons of the star trek dvds. I'll need a wall devoted to just star trek soon.

    I know what you mean Alex. I'm hoping to buy double DVD cases to replace my ST:TOS cases and take up half the room.

    I can't wait to see season one, and to hear it in 5.1.

    Does anyone know how much time before a dvd comes out that Paramount formally announces it (ie-1 month, 2 months, 3 weeks, etc.).

    There's really only one piece of information we don't have on this release - the price. Hopefully it won't exceed the $150 list Fox puts on its 7-disc "X-Files" sets.

    I'm not sure how many of you recall this.
    When STARTREK.COM did their survey about these a few months back, one of the supplements they asked about our interest in being included was a "Nit-Picker's Guide" pop-up track.
    I got psyched up when I read that...what a cool feature that would be!
    Since it hasn't been mentioned other than the survey, I guess it won't be in the general release. Too bad [​IMG] ; it would've been spectacular!!

    I wonder more if it doesn't have to do with a possible failure to secure the rights to the title of the books. After all, Paramount might not have been willing to pay the cost.

    If I was the publisher of those books, I'd probably ask for A LOT, too. Think about it: the books would be obsolete after the info in them was all used up on the DVD's!

    Wish it coulda happenned, tho'...

    I can't wait for the TREK dvds. I just don't know how long will it be till we get all seven seasons.

    If Paramount's "leaked" schedule is accurate, it should take a little over a year. It had them coming out every other month.

    Also, everybody's saying they're upset that certain features aren't being included. How do you know? Has there been an official list of features yet? If so, I missed it. Could somebody paste it here?
