Yesterday we reported
that a single-disc release of Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Best Of
will come out on May 12th
, sporting 4 episodes of the 1987 series that would be priced, according to Video Business
, at $14.99. This morning CBS DVD and Paramount Home Entertainment have provided the front and rear package art for this item, giving us lots of new details. The episodes included are:
- "The Best of Both Worlds (Part I)"
- "The Best of Both Worlds (Part II)"
- "Yesterday's Enterprise"
- "The Measure of a Man"
These episodes are taken from the second, third and fourth seasons of the seven-season show. Running time is 181 minutes. Video is in the original full frame aspect ratio, with audio in English 5.1, Spanish Mono and Portuguese Mono. English, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles are on board, and it is closed captioned for the hearing impaired. No bonus material is included, as this is apparently not aimed at collectors but more at the casual fan, who might spot this in a display near the check-out line at a grocery store or drug store...especially with the new Star Trek
film in theaters to tie in with. But it will also be available from other retailers, including Amazon (who hope to have a pre-order link shortly), for anyone who wants this included in their Star Trek
