The first episode of this new series of adventures has been completed, made its debut at this year’s Phoenix Comic Con and is now available for viewing online. It has everything the Star Trek original series fan could want.
Paying homage to an iconic franchise like Star Trek isn’t an easy thing to do but JJ Abrams and crew have certainly tried from obvious shout-outs to the Original Series to the more subtle nuances such as bringing certain figures known for their own attachment to the Trek-verse. The best way to do that is by cameo appearances by key personnel who have a direct link to the franchise or those who over the many years have been vocal about their love of the series in all its incarnations.
Star Trek Best of Both Worlds and Next Generation Blu Ray Special Features Director, Roger Lay, Jr. talks with Slice about the latest releases from CBS Home Entertainment. Sounds good? You bet, because it’s 7.1 surround sound and there’s more cool tech stuff to enhance the creative choices in these DVD projects. There’s a never before seen Gag reel and a 30 minute mini-doc about the Borg. Roger explains how they keep a fresh approach to each of these restoration projects to give the fan base what they want. Do these Star Trek DVDs keep you satisfied? Let us know!
>While Star Trek: The Next Generation was a hit right out of the gate, most fans agree that it’s in the third season when the series really comes into its own. What’s interesting about reviewing this pivotal season (not only for Next Generation but the franchise as a whole) is how few of the behind-the-scenes people felt like the series had turned a corner based on the feedback they were getting.
