Fourteen years after its first – and only – disc release in the North America, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine returns from the Gamma Quadrant with a long-awaited second run on DVD, with all seven seasons hitting store shelves on February 7.
Currently listed for preorder at Amazon at an MSRP of $144.99, this is certainly expected to drop as we approach the February release – and will definitely be a more cost-effective buy than the original sets ever were. (As of this writing, the full-series collection from 2003 is priced over $329 at Amazon.)
For those of you in the USA who have waited to pick up the Deep Space Nine collection due to the high price point, this upcoming collection certainly seems to be a more affordable option. And assuming it follows the trend of CBS’s other recent DVD reissues, such as The Next Generation and Enterprise (due in January), the packaging is likely to be much more user-friendly and durable, too.
As with previous Trek reissues, we have no expectation of additional content or inclusion of the various Best Buy-exclusive bonus content issued with the 2003 DVDs – these are almost certainly to be repeated pressings of the same 2003 discs.
There’s no cover art yet available for this new set, but as soon as it’s made public we’ll make sure you get to see it right here – and hopefully, a follow-up Voyager set will follow later in 2017.
