The Really Super-Awesome Trust Us You Totally Need To Have This One Even If You’ve Already Bought All The Other Ones DVD box set for Star Trek: The Next Generation is about to hit stores, and I got a chance yesterday to see a preview of the special documentaries John de Lancie and I shot, in this preview trailer at Star Trek dot Com.
If you are totally into TNG and don’t already own any of the seasons on DVD, I suppose it’s competitively priced at $40 or so per season. Otherwise, I think it’s grossly overpriced.
If you already own the good seasons (3-5, IMHO) you’re pretty much looking at this for the special features disc, which according to TV Shows on DVD contains:
- The Next Generation‘s Impact: 20 Years Later
- The Next Generation‘s Legacy: 2007
- Star Trek Visual Effects Magic: A Roundtable Discussion
- Select Historical Data 1
- Inside The Star Trek Archive
- Intergalactic Guest Stars
- Alien Speak
- Select Historical Data 2
- Inside Starfleet Academy Archives: Sets and Props
- Special Profiles
- Dressing The Future
So that looks pretty awesome to me, and I guess there are lots of specials added to each disc, including stuff that was once exclusive to Best Buy or something like that, but it still feels way too expensive to me with a suggested retail price of $440. I mean, WTF, CBS?
