Already available on Blu-ray Disc for the first time since two weeks ago, when the studio released the Star Trek - 50th Anniversary TV and Movie Collection
BD set (an item which is already sold out at many retailers, including Amazon
!), now CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution are announcing an individual Blu-ray release for the complete series of Star Trek: The Animated Series
Due in stores on November 15th
, this complete series item is officially titled as "Star Trek: Animated - The Animated Adventures of Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek
" (the same as the 2006 DVD release has been formally called). Remastered in high definition, the 3-disc set will - for a limited time, in any case - include special collectible postcards with artwork for each episode created by acclaimed artist Juan Ortiz.
Featuring the voices of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, and Majel Barrett, the only original Star Trek
regular cast member not to return was Walter Koenig ("Chekov"). Koenig did write an episode, however ("The Infinite Vulcan"). Other stories were written or co-written by David Gerrold, DC Fontana, David Wise, Marc Daniels, Samuel A. Peeples, and Larry Niven (whose "Kzinti" stories first intersected with Star Trek
as a result of his episode, "The Slaver Weapon").
Below is the package art. First up is the main disc case. The second image is the outer "o-ring" slipcase, which uses the same key artwork as the disc case does. Finally is a "beauty shot" of the case and its contents, including the collectible Juan Ortiz-created postcards. Check it out:
