Tomorrow's the big day when Star Trek - Season 1 on a 10-disc HD DVD/DVD hyrbrid set
arrives in stores. With fans priming the dilithium crystals for that trek to the store, we wanted to set our long-range scanners to find out what's going on with the next release, which is the remastered Star Trek - Season 2
episodes on an HD DVD/DVD hyrbrid package.
It's been over a month since we passed along rumors
to expect the next release in the Mid-March to Early April timeframe. Now we've heard from retailers that Paramount Home Entertainment is setting an exact release date of March 25th
. Bonus material is getting ready for this new collection, and will include more Billy Blackburn's own behind-the-scenes home movie footage shot while he was a regularly-hired "Extra" on the set of the original Star Trek
. In fact, longtime regular reader John Tenuto and his family Mary Jo and Nicky were at a special screening of "The Menagerie" last week, and saw a sneak peek of this upcoming set. He says it was a great video; our thanks to him for the contribution.
Don't forget, though, that this is pre-announcement information, and is always subject to change. Stay tuned and we'll keep you informed with further developments, as we get them!
