A week ago we reported
that the already-released Blu-ray edition of Star Trek - Season 1
was about to get new BD-Live downloadable content, including a sneak peek of the upcoming Star Trek - Season 2
Blu-ray Disc release. The set features both original (as-aired) and remastered (for high-def audio and sound, including special effects) episodes from the show's second year.
That's when Walter Koenig joined the cast as "Chekov," and we saw such fan-favorite episodes as "The Trouble With Tribbles," "Amok Time," "Mirror, Mirror," "Journey to Babel," "The Doomsday Machine," "I, Mudd," "The Ultimate Computer," "Assignment: Earth" and "A Piece of the Action." Among the new BD-Live content available last week was this gem: "roundtable discussions with special effects producers Mike and Denise Okuda, Dave Rossi and Neil Wray, as well as David Gerrold, Tribble inventor and writer of the fan-favorite 'Trouble with Tribbles' episode.
" Hopefully that means there will also be new bonus material featuring these names, that is coming for the Blu-ray release, and which is above and beyond what was including on the standard DVD version of Season 2: Remastered
We're still waiting on CBS/Paramount's official announcement for the Star Trek - Season 2
Blu-ray Disc set, but this afternoon trade journal Home Media Magazine revealed
that the release date for this title is September 22nd
. They don't mention extras, but otherwise describe it as a 7-disc set with all 26 episodes, available to watch in either the original broadcast version or the remastered edition (and, like Season 1
on BD, you can toggle between either version while viewing). The cost reported by HMM
's John Latchem is $116.99 SRP. They've got a small thumbnail of the cover art there, but it's the same thing as seen in the screen capture shown below.
Stay tuned for updates!
