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 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.
