I hope someone at Paramount realizes the insignia is backwards on that last photo.
For those who don't go read the article at The Digital Bits...the photos are taken from Amazon.co.uk.
At least this box solves the Starfleet insignia complaint we had when the first pictures of this set showed the more angular Star Trek: Generations version instead of the encircled one shown here.
As for the badge reversal, let's hope it's just a prototype packaging SNAFU that will be remedied in the final product. There's only about half a billion people who would notice that something's wrong with it, even if they couldn't say what specifically.
I think this packaging is stunning and I can't wait to buy these sets!! I hope Paramount keeps the same overall design for DS9, when they get around to releasing that series.
I could be wrong, but the two images of the outer cases look like computer renderings to me.
As a former senior member, I can attest to the compulsive qualities of trekkers. After years of harassment from them, I suspect that Paramount is aware of this. I would bet on any problem of this magnitude being fixed before final production.
That packaging absolutely rocks. I must buy them. I must buy them. I must have them.
Oooers......looking forward to these sets more and more all the time. Thanks for the heads up!
If it makes anykind of computer sounds then I might have a joygasm.
There... that's better
Simple matter of the picture being reversed
But now the numbers are backwards!
So much for trying to save money....I must buy this when it comes out. I guess resistance IS futile.
No, no, no, the insignia is being shown correctly! It's NOT backwards!
Look at the top picture, with the top flipped up. If you "mirror" that image, you'll realize that it's correct as shown, if you were facing it.
Now look at the open case's spine in the same picture. The number one ("1") is horizontal (it's on it's side), and the top of the "1" is to the near left and the bottom to the far right. That case is meant to be closed by way of grabbing the side laying flat near you, and swinging it UP to meet the top of the case that is already vertical. It then snaps shut, as you can see the snap mechanism.
At that point, the number "1" will be readable normally, just like in the bottom photo. And you will then be looking at the BACK of the case, where the "backwards" combadge logo could be considered entirely appropriate...
As the wacko who originally complained about the improper combadge on the first pics we saw of these cases, I want to thank Paramount with all of my heart for fixing it! It *truly* would have broken my heart to have no choice but to buy "improper" cases.
I know...I'm pretty scary sometimes!
But I thank them, and Martin in particular!
So...Dave. I see you have quite a bit of time on your hands then?
Why do you say that? It took me about three seconds to realize what was going on with that pic!
Geez, I really have no desire to buy Season 1 or 2, but dammit if this isn't making it hard as hell to hold out on getting this the minute it's available!!!! Damn me and my poor college student lifestyle!!!!
So I'm assuming 6 discs of 4 eps, 1 disc of 2 eps + a featurette or two...?
Pity we can't see the back art on the foldout disc holder.
BTW, as a Trekker I need to find fault with something to do with this release. Hmm... Ah yes! Purple?! What's with the purple?! What about that cool cyan seen on the titles?! Can't Paramount do anything right?! Sheesh!
