The first couple of seasons already went down to $49 for a short while. Did you miss that sale? Watch for it again. These sets are so worth it.

More than 10,234? But of course, only CBS has the true totals for everything. I'm afraid all we can do is get little crumbs of information via the-numbers.com and homemediamagazine.com.

True, and I certainly am. Check the second half of my reply to Cap.T in post #853.

Yep, these are only U.S. numbers.

I think re-releaseing the dvds didn't help either. I can bet more than one person grabbed that thinking they were remastered as well.

studios not tell the truth? dude, you've been watching too many consipracy shows. what kind of organization would intentionally lie about how well or how poorly something is doing? oh wait, we are talking Hollywood. never mind.

I always thought "sales" are bull... people feel good for getting 40% and such, because, yes, it does save money... but a lot of these things are marked up and the sale is just the original price...

I usually wait until the release date, when I know I have the money and the price is reasonable...

Most costs are heavily influenced by the subject they happen to be, just look at Trek merchandise... a coffee mug is easily $15+, simply because it has "Star Trek" on it...

Guinan has her moments but for the most part I find her self righteous. I never quite get why everyone one the ship opens up to her. I think I even prefer Neelix as far as bartenders go.

I don't quite get your meaning. She simply goes back with the C and ends up in the main timeline. Why would she disappear?

Neelix was a cook, not a bartender.

I actually liked Guinan...

This really touched me:

Replaced it with a smoother video.

That is pretty touching!
4K? Really? Why? 720P looks pretty good projected @ 120"!!! I haven't seen 1080P(projected), but I imagine it's GREAT!

Default We need more reviews for Next Gen S4

So far I'm the only person to have written a consumer review for the 4th season for blu-ray.com. Come on Star Trek fans, how about a few more reviews....

Here's mine that I posted a few months ago:

"benbess - Aug 09, 2013
50% Voted

Movie:4.5
Video:4.5
Audio:4.5
Extras:4
Overall:4.5


another excellent release of this TV classic

The basic idea of Star Trek on TV is this: each episode is a small sci fi movie of above average intelligence. And the two-parters really are like movies. The show was a huge hit, and by the fourth season they were working on all cylinders, with strong screenplays, great performances, very good FX, interesting sets, Emmy-award winning costumes, and Emmy-award winning make-up. A lot of talent went into this show, both in front of and behind the camera. But until this remaster we were seeing it through a glass darkly, because the final output on video often was a blurry muddy mess.

With these amazing remasters we can finally see this show as it was meant to be seen. The PQ is outstanding, as is the surround sound.

Tired of dystopian end-of-the-world sci fi films that all seem the same? The cure for that is Star Trek, which deals with difficult themes in an optimistic and problem-solving way.

Need a show that you can watch with your whole family, even kids? Star Trek again fits the bill.

Outstanding show, reborn for the 21st century. Buy it."

I watched the Redemption standalone release last night. I love going back to an episode after a couple of years, as I watch so much that I cant always remember everything.....the main gist of the story yes, but not all the little details. Loved revisiting Data's first assignment as Captain of his own ship and look foward to jumping into the exclusive special features tonight.

I like the standalone 2 parters because they don't have that cheesy, "Last time on Star Trek" intro things.

I know that, but the Majel Barrett voice over sounds so cheesy because they try to make it sound like you are watching a Captain's Log or something.

ever watch Back to the Future Part 2? same thing. She existed because history was changed so everything from the moment the Enterprise-C disappeared is different than what it was supposed to be. let the effects trickle down and the Enterprise was never at the planet where she died so she exists. This is the universe if the Enterprise-C had disappeared and no one knew it was at the planet. as for how she went back in time, she still existed because she came from a legit timeline. Until the Enterprise-C went back in time, the Yesterday's Enterprise world was the real universe so she was a real person. This is where things get tricky - because she was actually alive before the Enterprise-C disappeared(as a child), she could still exist when it returned to the past because she can claim that past just the same as the Tasha who died in season 1. or it is possible that the rift protected everyone on the ship the same way it protected the Enterprise-E in First Contact when the Earth was suddenly borgified. or time travel just allows you to go back to the past. it is tough to say why since we don't really know how time travel works but there are several theories that explain why she would survive and exist. pick the easy one - the rift just protected everyone.

it is kind of funny but really Guinan is at fault for Sela. Had she not told Tasha about her death, Tasha would never have asked to go to the Enterprise-C and Sela would never have been born. If it had been anyone other than Guinan who told Tasha, Picard would never have sent her over - he did because of what Guinan told her. so really, Picard isn't to blame or at least not entirely.

My only complaint with Redemption is that the jump from Part 1 to Part 2 is rough. Where was BOBW 2 picks up right where BOBW 1 ended(or at least is supposed to, again why cut staight to the deflector firing?), Part 2 doesn't so the cut from Sela to the ships is awkward. but I watched it again a couple night ago and am finding that I like it more now than I did when I first saw it back in the 90's.

I posted a short review on Amazon, where I purchased it.

Not very in depth though...
