Amazon UK has now released a low-quality version of a special trailer made by CBS to promote the release of Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s “The Best of Both Worlds” on Blu-Ray. The trailer runs at just over 2 minutes in length and gives a glimpse into some of the special features made exclusively for this release, including – as we’ve previously reported – a behind-the-scenes featurette, gag reel and new group audio commentary. Watch the full trailer below:

Furthermore, the official site recently published a new image of the packaging for the special release which shows the set is in a unique slipcase. When you remove the outer Borgified cover, Picard is revealed in his normal human appearance.

Fans in the US & Canada should expect a release date of April 30 for this disc (the same day Season 3 is set to hit shelves). Fans in the UK can get their copy one day early, as Paramount Home Entertainment (UK) have nominated April 29 as their release date. UK fans can already pre-order their copy now for just £10.49 now at! We’ll bring you pre-order information for the U.S. as soon as we get it.

    I’m loving that cover. It’s gone from being a slightly cheesy photoshop of a promo pic to a cool feature (imo of course). I’m probably going to get this now as well as season three. Damn you CBS! 😉

    Now THAT is STAR TREK (unlike that trailer for the Transformers/Avengers Spinoff which was released previous week titled some “Into Darkness”… whatever – I was just wondering, if that movie was about skite diving or cliff jumping, having people jump from ridiculous highs at least 4 times in that trailer)…
    I love it, I want it. Preordered… now keep fingers crossed for a TNG movie. I mean it. Look at all the other franchises, they try to establish a continuity (Avengers, DC Comics, X-Men) a shared universe… something STAR TREK already had. Yet Paramount decided to abandon it, for the sake of remakes… now if not all people at Paramount are braindead yet, someone will be enlighted shortly and say… “hey… whatever others try to achieve, we have it already, let’s make our Avengers film: Shatner-Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway, Archer.”
    Count on it. Now that JJ and his team are leaving, it is a great time for TREK!!!

    THAT’S how it’s done! Thank you CBS, the quality is back on par with Season 1.

    Way to show a Bluray trailer for an HDTV upgrade in super compressed artifacty SD….

    • Quinn

      This is what was posted on Amazon’s site – we’ll surely see a full-HD version soon!

      • archer923

        I hope so. Them posting stuff to showcase HD in SD is stupid.

  • pittrek

    OK, now the cover DOES make sense 🙂 I have a feeling that CBS is going to get a LOT of money from my wallet this year 🙂

  • New Horizon

    When I pulled a screen shot of the reused shot of the borg cube from Q-Who and compared it to the S3 version by CBS-D, the difference in quality is staggering. Even though the trailer is in SD, the borg cube went from looking like a flat, lifeless, pile of plastic parts that HTV created for S2, to a real vessel. What a shame HTV had to do such a mediocre job on S2.

    It’s a shame the US isn’t getting ‘The Best of Both Worlds’ feature…

    • Justin Olson

      Of course we are!

    The cover art is a clever idea but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. Personally, I would have much preferred the Enterprise-D in battle with or fleeing a Borg cube.

    I’m in total agreement over the ‘flat, lifeless’ comment regarding the Borg cube in season 2. The scenes in space for that episode look like static animation cells placed over a moving star-field cell. In fact – most of the VFX in Season 2 look like that. I can’t let it lie y’know – HTV ruined S2. But this looks pretty amazing – I think CBS have done a great job – you can see that even with the poor SD trailer. And do I spy a new/enhanced effect right at the end of the trailer? Check out the yellow glow around the Borg ship just before it explodes. That looks new!! 🙂

  • Okay, HD version of the trailer has been uploaded. All I have to say is wow wow wow.

    • Matt_Cardiff_UK

      Wow wow wow wow wow – omfg! Etc. My pre-order just went in! I am a happy bunny 🙂 Season 3 is gonna be amazing!

  • Corran

    looks like the cube explosion has been enhanced a little.

    • Matt_Cardiff_UK

      A little CBS magic goes a very long way doesn’t it!? 🙂
