The first season release of Star Trek: The Original Series on HD DVD is going to be full of enough extras to satiate the hungers of most Trek fans; and as a bonus for the MMO fan, it will include a preview of Star Trek Online.
Paramount Home Entertainment has announced the previously hinted-at newly remastered first season release of 'Star Trek: The Original Series' on HD DVD will occur on November 20 in a massive 10-disc Combo Format set. The studio did not mention a companion Blu-ray Disc release for the same date, though we suspect the series will bow in Blu sometime next year.
'Star Trek The Original Series: Season One' will be presented in 1.33:1 1080p video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio. Extra features slated to appear on the high definition side of the discs include Starfleet Access - On-screen graphical interface allows viewers to access Picture in Picture video commentaries, comparisons of re-mastered vs. original effects, encyclopedic information (science, life forms, technology), episode trivia and more; Spacelift: Transporting Trek into the 21st Century; Billy Blackburn's Treasure Chest: Rare Home Movies and Special Memories; Interactive Enterprise Tour; and a Perpetual Entertainment's "Star Trek Online" MMO Game Preview. The remaining extra features were originally available on the standard DVD set and can be viewed in-full through the disc details below.
