Half a year after CBS released another round of repackaged Star Trek: The Next Generation DVDs, the studio has next chosen to revisit Star Trek: Enterprise in a set of both full-series and separate-season DVDs due for January 10, 2017.

The original North American DVD sets, heavy plastic surrounding fragile disc trays. Not fun.

The four seasons are due to retailers in new thinpak-style DVD cases, a much more user-friendly presentation than the USA’s original, cumbersome silver sets released in 2005.

These new releases are expected to be the same discs as the original 2005 collections, which mean buyers shouldn’t expect to see the expanded bonus content created for the Blu-ray releases – or the additional DVD features released by Best Buy in 2005.

In addition, CBS also has a full-series box set on the way, which will contain the first three years of Enterprise in the now-common ‘EpikPak’ oversized DVD case, along with Season Four in its own case along side inside the outer slipcover.

If you haven’t made the leap to high definition, these are a much more shelf-friendly way of stocking up on the adventures of the Enterprise NX-01… but with the full-series Blu-ray collection available for nearly the same cost – and containing a much better presentation, along with hours of new special features – it might be time to think about an upgrade!

Hopefully, though, this is a promising sign for the other Trek shows – while we’re not expecting a Blu-ray upgrade anytime soon, it really is far past time that Deep Space Nine and Voyager receive a low-cost, shelf-friendly repackaging on DVD, and we hope that’s on CBS’s radar for the near future.

In the meantime, however, you can order the complete Star Trek: Enterprise collection on either DVD or Blu-ray through our links below.

    And yet another re-re-re-re-re-release…

    I thought Star Trek turned 50 this year?

    Where are the really interesting announcements?

    Where is some real new information about ST: DSC?

    To me as a long time Trekkie – and I’m usually not so harsh on criticism – this has been an disappointing year until now…

    • DaMac

      I’m not really sure what people wanted though. We got a new movie, we’re getting a new show next year. TNG was totally remastered on blu over the last handful of years and looks amazing (despite no one freaking buying it apparently). We got some cool new books. We got anniversary magazines.

      Other than DS9 and VOY on blu, which doesn’t seem to be happening, I’m not sure what else I could ask for really.

      • Roger Birks

        The problem is that DS9 and Voyager are 90s spin off ‘spin off’ shows. TNG was the breakthrough series that stuck and worked. The other two are really only remembered by Star Trek fans.

        • DaMac

          Which is a shame, as DS9 is my favorite Trek show by a mile.

          • Roger Birks

            If it happens, if, it will be when the studio is confident of making a profit within its own expectant timeframes. At the moment the costs of bringing the two series to bluray would cost money which cannot be recouped and turned into profit within set timeframes. As I said, the fanbase for both series is quite limited.

          • DaMac

            I’m hoping the TNG complete set at the lower price sells so well they consider it again. I think it would be a more down and dirty restoration like X-Files got with upscaled effects, but I would take that over nothing for sure.

            It’s a shame $50 a season is seen as so extremely expensive now when the TNG DVDs came out at $100 a season, but I guess the market today is what it is.

          • Coupon: The Movie

            Well, I did my part. I was waiting for the TNG complete series set and as soon as it came out I snatched it up. I can only hope many others had the same plan as me.
            I’m still waiting for a region 1 complete series blu ray set of Enterprise.
            On the subject of DS9 and Voyager, I would say that not releasing them again on DVD is a good sign. If they had given up all hope of ever giving those shows the remaster treatment they probably would have re released them by now but the fact that they haven’t tells me that CBS is holding out for….something.

          • Roger Birks

            Or. It may mean that the two series do not sell very well… and rereleasing again would be cost ineffective.

          • Coupon: The Movie

            Well, yeah. Of course. That was the reason why they didn’t do it right after TNG. That doesn’t mean it can’t happen in the future when the costs of doing something like this drop down.

          • scooternva

            And here I am from two days in the future, to let you know that they are re-releasing DS9 in DVD… which sadly means it is now extremely unlikely we will see a Blu-ray release any time in the for seeable future.

          • Coupon: The Movie

            Yep. Looks like i spoke too soon. Exactly 48 hours too soon. That’s depressing.

          • Coupon: The Movie

            At least I got my Enterprise Region 1 Blu Ray box set. I’ll take my victories where I can.

          • scooternva

            No offense intended, but your price point is ridiculous. £15 per season is not a remotely realistic price, especially considering all of the re-rendering that will have to be done on the low resolution CGI visual effects in later seasons. The TNG seasons didn’t require wholesale re-creation of visual effects, and those still cost six times what you consider “reasonable” (and still didn’t make a profit for CBS Home Video).

  • Robert Anthony

    That full series set packaged as seasons 1-3, plus a separate season 4, is an odd configuration. I bought the first round on DVD and gave them to my nephew when I upgraded to bluray.

    Dear PTB, I want DS9 and Voyager remastered on bluray, not re-issued DVD’s. Some of us dinosaurs still enjoy having physical media.

    • AdmNaismith

      Was season 4 the year they added ‘Star Trek’ back to the title?

      • SFSeries&Movies

        No that was season 3

      • Robert Anthony

        Yeah, as “SFSeries&Movies” says, it was season 3. The same year they switched to the “country” version of the theme song. Season 4 of Enterprise is my very favourite season of any Trek series. (not that you asked ; ) )

    • DaMac

      I’m guessing CBS’ unique megapacks can only do three seasons. I got the Mission: Impossible complete series set not long ago and it’s two megapacks with three seasons in each plus a slim case for season seven.

      • Robert Anthony

        Who knows eh? I have the “Frasier” complete series with two mega packs side-by-side. One contains 5 seasons and the other contains 6.

        • Those are half-hour episodes which require half the discs TREK releases need.

          • Robert Anthony

            Granted, but it’s also 11 seasons versus 4. 😊

        • DaMac

          Well sitcoms are half the length and thusnhalf the discs I expect.

          • Robert Anthony

            Frasier complete series… 44 discs. Enterprise complete series… 27 discs. I suppose the separate case for season 4 does make sense. And season four does stand alone in more ways than one. : )

          • DaMac

            I meant less discs per season. As in, if CBS can fit three seasons of Mission: Impossible or Star Trek in one of their megacases then it makes sense they could fit six seasons of Frasier into one.

          • Robert Anthony

            I was right there with you. 😊

  • pittrek

    Jesus – again? BTW Archer on the last cover looks like he has a pink lightsaber

  • Roger Birks

    Well obviously they keep selling the Star Trek dvds enough to warrent spending money on rebranding again. It does cost money doesnt it?

    Im just waiting for Voyager and DS9 on bluray. My money will go their. Or elsewhere…

    I watched Enterprise, Broken Bow, the other day. It was it Standard Def. SOME of the CGI effects look incredibly dated and just really bad. The effects in TNG look a lot lot better than what I saw there, im damb sure about that! Is it better on bluray?

    • DaMac

      The overall image is better on blu but no, they didn’t redo the CG, it still looks ancient. Gets better after the first two seasons but still it is what it is. Even movies don’t don’t redo CG for a remaster, it’s way too expensive.

      • Roger Birks

        I was actually surprise the CG looked as bad as it did! The scene with Archer ariving at the Enterprise in the shuttle was really bad for me. Amazed.

        • Pedro Ferreira

          Doesn’t look any worse than the Star Trek Discovery trailer.

    • Kirksdeadjim

      DS9 on blu will never happen.It would be way too expensive for a show that is Star Trek in name only.Its no coincidence that Trek on blu ray was done for the parts of the franchise that has the U.S.S ENTERPRISE in it.

      DS9 has its fans sure and i respect that but it was a very ugly looking show and unappealing to me.
