    You voted - we listened. For the first time ever on Blu-ray, here are extended versions of your two favorite episodes from the celebrated Stargate Atlantis™ series - without commercial interruption, and in packaging you designed!

    The exhilarating, feature-length pilot episode, Rising, sends a brilliant team of scientists through a Stargate to the legendary city of Atlantis. But not only is the city about to be engulfed by ocean water, an enemy appears who threatens everyone in the Pegasus Galaxy! And in the white-knuckle, lengthened Enemy at the Gate from Season 5, as the team tries to disempower Wraith hive ships, the Wraith discover coordinates that will allow them to destroy Earth!
News GraphicThis past March we provided our most recent update about the Stargate: Atlantis - Fan's Choice Blu-ray Disc release, which allowed fans to choose which episodes would be included on the show's first-ever high definition home video release (they're named in the studio description above), and also allowed fans to design and vote on the cover art for the Blu-ray release (a thumbnail of one of the top-rated submissions, per the SGA Fans Choice site, is visible to the right. Note that we do not know yet whether this will be the final cover art for the product.

However, we do know the release date now, and other details, courtesy of our friends in the retail industry. Today MGM and distributor Fox Home Entertainment revealed to retailers that Stargate: Atlantis - Fan's Choice on high-def Blu-ray will arrive on August 4th, at a cost of $29.99 SRP. Specs show it will run 87 minutes, and is presented in 1080p widescreen video with English 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio. Other language options include Spanish Stereo, 5.1 Dolby Digital, French 5.1 Dolby Digital and subtitles in English, French or Spanish. No bonus material other than "trailers" had been mentioned in the information available to retailers, and as we said previously, final package art isn't available yet. Stay tuned, however, and we'll update you just as soon as we can!
