    For season one...

    Based on the specs from Universal's web site I would say it appears the discs will be 1-sided (DVD-9?).

    It's a 5 disc set and there is NO mention of side-A, Side-B, so we should be good. IT also says the packaging will be 3 slim cases with an outer box. Considering there are only 13 episodes for season 1 + the miniseries, it all ought to fit across the five discs, plus the extras.

    [​IMG] Unfortunately, there is going to be ~20 episodes for Season 2. Based on UNI's practices of releasing subsequent seasons on DVD-18's it looks like the season two release will be DVD-18's.

    Although the miniseries set consisted of two DVD-18s with blank flip-sides. Who knows whether Universal will redo the miniseries for this set or not.

    I'm extremely interested in DVD18 vs other configurations after all the A-Team problems. Is it definite that DVD18 is more susceptable to problems than DVD9 etc? Or it is just assumption?

    I reeeeeeeally want the US version of Galactica, but DVD18 = probable no sale.
