The wait is over! We've got a special treat for everyone today - CBS has just released the very first look at Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 6 on Blu-ray, coming this June!
The trailer cleverly brings together several common themes from TNG's sixth season and can roughly be divided into three sections - "Legends", "History" and "Inner Demons".
The majority of fans will undoubtedly be thrilled by the long awaited debut of space station Deep Space Nine in the "Legends" strand, complete with a nice look at Dr. Bashir in high definition ("Birthright"). "History" is no less potent, with a whimsical look at some of TNG Season 6's most memorable period pieces including "A Fistful of Datas" and "Ship in a Bottle".
Finally, things take a turn for the serious with "Inner Demons" as we're treated to a look at the hard-hitting episodes "Chain of Command" and "Frame of Mind". Topping off the trailer, the VAM preview holds a bit of a surprise this season with a special look at a rather unique deleted scene - the long-since rumored Scotty/Troi encounter!
To wrap up this initial look at Season 6, here's a closer glimpse at the Season Six cover art, featuring Picard, La Forge, and Crusher (the same trio from the Season 3 cover), on a rather striking purple background.
We've got a whole lot more analysis and commentary on the trailer coming over the next couple of weeks, including full 1080p HD screenshots (for those of you who will undoubtedly want a Deep Space Nine-themed wallpaper), SD/HD comparisons and more information on the bonus features. Naturally, as soon as pre-orders for the new Blu-ray set become available, we'll make sure you all know about it.
