Star Trek -Want to Beam Yourself Into Some Future BD-Live Content? David Gerrold Explains How!
CBS DVD also reveals other upcoming content for Star Trek - Season 2 on Blu-ray
Posted by David Lambert
As we've reported, CBS DVD is providing downloadable BD-Live content for their Blu-ray Disc release of Star Trek - Season 1, and will continue to provide it for the upcoming releases of Star Trek - Season 2 (September 22nd) and Season 3. Here's a bit of text from the studio, describing what you can look forward to:
CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment are planning even more for the highly-anticipated Blu-ray debut of Star Trek: The Original Series Season Two. Coming soon via the Season Two portal of CBS-BDLive.com, fans will be able to check out an exclusive interview from David Gerrold on his inspiration for the Tribbles and his behind-the-scenes insights, in addition to a wealth of even more incredible BD Live bonus features that will offer fans access to materials unavailable anywhere else.
Now we've learned that the studio will provide fans with a way to possibly get themselves inserted into upcoming BD-Live content! Coming up shortly, the San Diego Comic Con will host a CBS/Paramount Star Trek booth, where a limited number of Tribbles wil be given away free, while supplies last. And, whether you receive a tribble from Comic-Con, or if you happen to have one from any other source, you can take a picture of yourself and your Tribble in any kind of preposterous pose you like, and Tribble inventor David Gerrold - an old friend of ours, who wrote Season 2's fan-favorite episode "The Trouble with Tribbles" - will judge the results and pick which ones get to become part of an exclusive BD-Live "Tribble Gallery" that will be available later.
Below is David Gerrold, passing along all the official details about this in video form. At this time we also would like to pass along our site's condolences to David, for the passing away last week of Susie Miller. Susie worked with David on his projects for 15 years, and he has described her as having "a big heart and a big soul, and she was resourceful and dependable." He also describes how "she helped raise Sean," David's adopted son who was the inspiration for his story The Martian Child. All of our sympathies go to David and Sean at the time of this tragic loss.
