Last June we brought you the great news
that Star Trek: The Animated Series
was coming to DVD in 2005. Now three different websites are reporting that this release will occur on March 15th
Information about this has been circulating since late last week at IGN Filmforce
(near the bottom of the first page of their Star Trek
report), at TrekToday.com
(where they seem to mostly relay IGN's info), and at TrekWeb.com's news page
(where you can find the "Stardates" box at the bottom of the left-hand column).
However, we should also caution our readers that this date hasn't been verified by official sources at the studios: Paramount's key staff for this matter are all out for the holiday week, and won't return until after the first of the year. We also attempted to contact Columbia House, which was identified by writer David Gerrold
as the force behind the production of these discs. However, nobody we raised at Columbia House seemed to be aware of this title.
Our thanks to reader Tom Morter for the heads-up about these postings. Please stay tuned, and we'll let you know more about all of this just as soon as we can.
