Star Trek: The Next Generation - Cost, Extras, Box - With an Animated Look! - for Blu 'Best of Both Worlds'
Coming to high-def format on April 30th, along with 'Season 3' (see a trailer for that at the bottom!)...resistance is futile!

Yesterday CBS/Paramount announced that April 30th will see a pair of TV-on-BD releases in the Trek-i-verse, with Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 3 6-Blu-ray-disc set, and a special single-disc release of Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Best of Both Worlds on Blu-ray, with both parts of the fan-favorite story brought together in one place, in high definition! In our previous write-up we had the extras, package art and price ($129.99 SRP) for Season 3, but not for The Best of Both Worlds.
Today we've learned that the Borg-infested title will cost $27.98 SRP, and it includes a Gag Reel, an Audio Commentary (with Director Cliff Bole, Mike and Denise Okuda, and actress Elizabeth Dennehy), and the Featurette "Regeneration: Engaging the Borg" (a behind-the-scenes look at the Borg via interviews with cast, writers, producers, visual effects staff and makeup artists). Note that the studio describes these as "Exclusive, brand new bonus content that won't be available on the Season Three or Season Four Blu-ray discs."
Here's a look at the packaging, starting with a video which shows how the special package cover folds open to show Patrick Stewart as both Picard and Locutus! Then it's a high-res image of the (closed) box front itself, and as a special treat at the bottom is a video trailer for the Season 3 Blu-ray set. Enjoy!
