I'll take a guess the street price will be near $80.00, maybe a tad higher at some vendors.
I'm surprised there hasn't been more reaction to this news. There was a flurry of posts for the blu ray announcement of the 6 TOS films. I'm actually more excited about TOS coming out. Though I am really excited about the films coming, TOS is the thing! Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the King.( if you'll excuse a slight misuse of that Hamlet line
I guess I can understand, TOS has been issued 3 times on DVD, the third time being HD-DVD/SD and now the 4th time on Blu ray within a year of the last S3 set.
At anyrate, I am really looking forward to this release!
Though at least the Blu-rays are offering new stuff; we never got S2/S3 remastered in HD before (just S1), nor any of the pre-remastering in HD. That makes it an upgrade even for fussy old rustbuckets like I may resemble.
"The Starfleet Access feature on the episode The Galileo Seven (from the original HD-DVD release) has been dropped on the Star Trek: The Original Series - Season One Blu-ray to make room for other features."
I never owned the HD-DVD version so I don't know what I'm missing. However, I have to ask: what other features? Everything appears to be the same, unless they're adding more material that wasn't covered in the initial announcement. (Or the seamless branching and DTS track take up too much space.)
It's possible that it's the problem, that they're running right to the wire on disc space--but comparing disc 3 to disc 4, I find that hard to believe. (I think both discs should have about the same amount of replacement material, while disc 4's featurette is actually shorter.)
I'm also wondering what happened to the "Conscience of the King" text commentary, since that isn't being wrapped into a Starfleet Access piece.
