    I received that one also. Couldn't place what it could be. Sure hope you are correct.

    I watched my second season set in about half the time it took to watch the first.:laugh: (It's half the length for those who are not aware.) I love what most of the commentators called "the procedural approach" to the stories this season. It's science fiction with a bit of crime drama.

    A bit of fun. Who can name all of the actors in the foreground below in the scene from "Expanding Human" and the roles they played in Star Trek (TOS) ?

    Wow, you're right, Jason Wingreen was in a TREK episode (more like "appeared" in one) - had to look him up to confirm that. Aside from Scotty, Skip and his blonde doppelganger, the surprise TREK actor that sticks out to me is in another scene - Dan Duryea's son from the first pilot.

    I got my notification as well.

    And as far as "Expanding Human" goes -- it actually has 6 original series Trek actors -- if you count Vic Perrin.

    A bunch of people have gotten UPS notices of some order from Techicolor/Tennessee. I did and I can't even remember putting in a requst
    The Kino guy on Bluray said the discs are mailing, so everyone is assuming the mailout is the new disc.
    I can't think of anything else I could have coming from TC -- it legit shocked me to see a shipment pending since I didn't think I had any requests in for discs other than my request for new Red Dwarf UK discs.

    I guess I must have sent a request in even though I haven't even bought S2 yet though was planning to during some sale, but just haven't found my price point yet

    Mine is supposed to be here tomorrow, but I don;t have the bad disc to compare

    My season 2 replacement disc is due for delivery Friday the 12th. When checking the status last week, they replied they were having manufacturing delays.

    Picked up the UPS package. It is indeed S2 Disc 1, File dates listed 1/25/2019

    I watch Soldier and it sounded pretty normal, but again I have no frame

    Pretty sure you'd notice if it sounded like the first pressing. :D

    From reading the posts I suspect you're right.

    Came in a plain flat cardboard package, bare disc not even with 1 mil plastic or paper CD holder. Seems OK, but pretty surprising

    No padding whatsoever seems to be tempting fate, but I'm sure they know what they're doing. Saving a buck on shipping must offset how many re-re-requests from broken discs they estimate to get.

    It is a decently stiff cardboard which I have had disc shipped in before even from Criterion, but the cardboard is pretty rough and it seem at least a paper holder would seem reasonable.

    My UK BBC replacement disc were sent bare with and bubble wrap and one of the thicker paper envelopes -- not hard
    AUS Roadshow replacement discs were in a similar envelope, but is a nice plastic CD sized slimcase.
    US replacement usually have seemed to be in a stiffer style clear CD holder (? 3-5mil) in a padded envelope

    Replacement disc arrived here, no prior notification. Thanks again to the HTF community on this thread for putting pressure on KL to do right by this. It works!

    My disc arrived yesterday. The mailer was certainly tight and of fairly durable cardboard.

    I played through the problematic segment and it seems fine now. Someday I'll get around to watching some of these episodes.

    I've kept the bad disc, marked it with a Sharpie by crossing out the "1" on the Episodes 1-5 label. I've relegated it to the back of my six-disc holder that I used to make up for the broken S2 package I'd received last year.

    First the music on "The Fugitive," and now this. But you've got a good track record of seeing things fixed. Onward.

    I live in Ocoee, by the way, since I see you share our 90 degree weather in April, lately.
