ABOUT STAR TREK: DISCOVERY
STAR TREK: DISCOVERY follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.

Ash Tyler”), Mary Wiseman (“Cadet Sylvia Tilly”), Anthony Rapp (“Lt. Paul Stamets”) along with guest stars James Frain (“Ambassador Sarek”), Rainn Wilson (Harry Mudd) and Michelle Yeoh (Captain Philippa Georgiou).

I can't wait to get this but seriously 5.1 sound? They remix 40 year old TOS into 7.1 -- 25 year old TNG in 7.1 -- 30 year old ST:TMP into 7.1 and a brand new big budget 2018 show gets DTSMA 5.1?

I'll buy this from the bargain bin somewhere down the road. That's way too much money for a 13-episode set that wasn't that good, in my opinion, to start with.

Not to belabor the point, but S1 was 15 episodes based on Wiki. But I get what you're saying.

I'm keeping my preorder knowing full well the price will likely come down by November.

I couldn't agree more.

IIRC, the first episode was really a 3 parter which would make it 13 "complete" episodes.

I almost pre-ordered just for that reason but don't expect it to drop to the $20 (or lower) range that would cause me to make the purchase. Based on past Trek series releases It'll take a year or three for that to happen. Or I'll just purchase from the UK where it'll be region free and half the cost or less.

Per the credits, three separate episodes written by different combinations of writers and three different directors. Same holds true for the opening DS9 Season 2 arc. That is a three parter, but each is an individual episode with it's own creative staff. If you want to go by airing, the first two episodes were aired back to back on the same night, so I might understand the 14 episode argument.

Or Italy, etc. This very strategy worked for many of us with Next Generation, as I suspect it would here, too. CBS/Paramount have gotten away with charging a premium price in the US for anything titled Star Trek for so long. I guess I'm not enough of a fan to pay the hefty initial retail prices for ST stuff, but that's just me. I'm content to wait however long it takes for a reasonable price, or go shopping overseas.

Based on what, exactly? I'm really just curious how this mythical sub-$20 price point is coming into play.

Roughly $2/episode for an hour length series. That's the high end of what I'm willing to pay, new or old. I've gone as high as $3/episode for a select few series but it's been *very* select and ST: D is not in that select group for me.

This makes more sense now. Looking at other current shows being released on the format, this is a decent price. Game of Thrones is up around $8 an episode for Season 6. Westworld Season 1 is $4.30 per episode. It's $2.88/episode for Discovery's 15 episode season one.

I set my benchmark per episode at $3, since that’s what iTunes charges to purchase an individual episode in HD. Anything more and it better be really worth it; anything less and I feel like I’m getting a bargain.
