CBS have taken the rather unusual decision of releasing the trailer for the remastered Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 5 on Blu-ray over a month before Season 4 is released. Season 5 will be released on November 19, 2013.
We have the trailer here for you to enjoy:
The trailer opens with the event which - some could say - defines the fifth season: the return of Spock. After a tongue in cheek look at another returnee - Wesley Crusher in "The Game" - we're launched into a montage of memorable episodes including "Darmok", "Ensign Ro", "Unification", "The Inner Light", "I Borg" and the season finale "Time's Arrow, Part I".
Season 5 carries on with the same design motif used in the previous season set, this time in a deep blue. For the 5th Season packaging, the Starfleet commbadge insignia features Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) in his recognizable Season 5 grey undershirt with black ribbed shoulders, Counselor Troi (Marina Sirtis) and a stern looking Lt. Worf (Michael Dorn). You can view a larger version by clicking on the art below.
As always, the final design is subject to change - the cover art for Enterprise Season 2 underwent major revisions between the first previews and final release.
A more detailed article with comparisons, analysis, pre-order links, bonus features breakdown and all our thoughts is in the pipeline and should be coming soon so stay tuned! We expect the fifth season to hit shelves late in the Quarter 4, 2013 hopefully in time for Christmas - stay tuned for the finalized release date! In the meantime, let us know what YOU think of the new trailer in the comments below!
