Yesterday we passed along
a Rumor Mill post from The Digital Bits website that Star Trek: The Animated Series
was finally on the way to DVD in 2006, probably in the second half of the year. Later in the day our friends there posted a follow-up
- a news story this time, not a Rumor Mill post - which states the following:
Well... it's about time. Seriously, after all the false starts and rumors, it pleases me to no end to be able to say what I'm about to say. Yes... Paramount has now officially confirmed to us that they are working to release Star Trek: The Animated Series on DVD in 2006. No additional details are available at this time, other than what we've already posted in The Rumor Mill this week, which is basically that the release date is likely to be in the second half of the year to coincide with the franchise's anniversary. Still, given how long fans have been waiting for this series to reach DVD, I think it's darned good news, and now it's official too. We'll keep our eye on this title and let you know when there's more to report.
That was Bill Hunt of TheDigitalBits.com speaking, and he deserves all the credit for the scoop...congrats! We're doing the warp drive dance here for sheer joy of this long-awaited confirmation. Stay tuned, and we'll let you know more as developments happen!
