I have ordred this great Blu-ray collection for over 2 months ago and still haven’t seen it yet! Sure you’re a serious firm?

No kind regards from

It was sold as a set of three — was a Xmas gift & the 3rd DVD wasn’t to ship till after Xmas — so I cancelled the order! This is the second time this has happened to me — the last time I ordered in March for an Easter gift and I rec’d the shipment in NOVEMEBER! I am very UNHAPPY!

Maybe I’d had given this release five enthusiastic stars — if I could see them. These discs will not play on older Panosonic Blu-ray players and Blu-ray recorders. On mine it loads Paramount’s promo, touting all their wonderful Blu-ray releases, but when you hit “Play Episode” the menu options vanish and nothing else happens.

I installed the latest firmware, but still nothing. You’d think with the hundreds of millions Paramount makes off “Star Trek” they might have paid some office clerk $10/hour to check the discs against all name-brand machines, but I guess they didn’t want to be bothered. Whatever happened to Quality Control?

When I first got into, ahem, HD DVD, I was quite excited and impressed by Star Trek: The Original Series–Season 1. It looked and sounded fantastic, and the extra features were terrific. I was really looking forward to season 2 on HD DVD.

Three weeks later, HD DVD effectively dropped dead.

I eventually bought a Blu-ray player and waited. And waited. And waited. Finally, almost two years later, Season 2 is out and so am I — out of luck, that is. So much for pre-ordering. So much for expedited shipping. Money down the drain.

So now what? Wait two months for enough angry customers

I have found this blue-ray version to be grainy at best. Maybe, it’s my 32inch Sony, but I have the remastered standard version, and that plays better and cleaner.

What more can I say? I’m a purest but having watched both seasons now out, I finally came to grips that in every case, the new CG effect versions are a big improvement over the original effects and often put an entirely new light on episodes, that sometimes even makes me like a few episodes I was never super-keen on before.

Picture quality varies, but is generally the best you will ever see with the best of it very close to the original film quality, if you ever had to fortune to see the original films sent to TV stations.

My only caveat is that on my Samsung Bluray player, it takes a bit of fiddling to switch between classic version and new CG version and that sometimes my player has to stop to put all the effect scenes into the buffer. I can get around that by fast-forwarding through the episode first. It just may be an issue with my Samsung player, which is not the best.

If I had my choice, I would have preferred individual packages for each disc rather than a big box with flip panels to hold the discs within it; a bit easier to deal with and perhaps protects the discs better.
