A month ago yesterday, we brought you the official announcement
that CBS DVD and Paramount Home Entertainment were releasing Blu-ray Disc versions of Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 6
and also the fan-favorite two-part episode Star Trek: The Next Generation - Chain of Command
. At the time of the announcement, CBS/Paramount plotted a street date of June 3rd.
However, since then the studio has reassigned these titles, pushing back their release to a new stardate of June 24th
. One of our readers, Paul Weis, noticed the change at Amazon's pre-order listings (see button link below)., sent us the red alert (we're very grateful!), and we confirmed it with studio sources. Paul asked if we know why the delay. We're not sure; could it be due to a vicious attack by the Cardassians? Romulans? The Borg? Another malicious trick from Q? The truth is, the studio hasn't provided any reasons for the change. But they probably just needed a few extra weeks to make it the best possible release they could give us!
