Last month we reported on the upcoming release of Star Trek: Enterprise's third season on Blu-ray, currently scheduled to hit shelves on January 7, 2014 in the US.
In our original article, we drew attention to the rather bizarre choices that had gone into the cover art design. Rather than draw on the array of promotional media from season three, CBS had instead opted to feature a rather strange combination of two different Season One-era promotional photos:
Thankfully, today we can reveal that CBS have taken it upon themselves to make a couple of chronological corrections, replacing Jolene Blalock and Scott Bakula's photos with more season-appropriate shots of T'Pol and Archer.
The newly-used shot of T'Pol in her customary third-season uniform is from the standard Season 3 publicity stills collection, albeit blown-out and overexposed to fit in with the rest of the imagery. Meanwhile, the new image of Captain Archer appears to be a merging of Scott Bakula's face from a group promotional shot combined with the original body shot from that Entertainment Weekly spread.

So, what do you think about this updated artwork? Are you happy with the changes, or are you still hoping for another revision?
Star Trek: Enterprise Season 3 is released on Blu-ray on January 7, 2014 although if you're in the United States you can already pre-order your set from Amazon.com now. The set comes loaded with brand-new bonus features including a host of newly recorded audio commentaries and an edge-of-the-seat documentary on the conception of the Xindi War. Certainly not to be missed, place your pre-order with Amazon below if you haven't already!
