USA Star Trek: Voyager - The Complete Series (Mar 7, 2017)

BEWARE VERY GOOD FAKES: http://trekcore.com/blog/2017/04/buy...sets-hit-ebay/

Blu-ray.com product page: https://www.blu-ray.com/dvd/Star-Tre...es-DVD/131315/

TrekNews.net article: http://www.treknews.net/2016/12/12/c...dvd-set-march/

I didn't see a thread for this, and the product page points to the DS9 thread instead, so...

The new, long overdue North American "complete series" re-issue in the style of last month's DS9 and Enterprise releases (which followed last summer's similar TNG release).

The art of the three trapsheets is not nearly as pretty as the DS9 ones. Even worse than DS9 including everyone except Bashir (and snubbing him by having Sisko twice), Voyager doesn't even attempt to include all of the show's major characters on the artwork.

Case 1: Janeway (big closeup) and Tuvok (small)
Case 2: Janeway (big closeup) and Seven (small)
Case 3: Janeway (big closeup) and Torres (small)

Front of slipcase: I'll give you three guesses... it's Janeway

They went all out on the slipcase for this one though. Not only embossed like the DS9 one, this one also has a silky-feeling matte laminate with a selective spot varnish (glossy) for design emphasis. It looks great on the shelf.

My assessment is basically the same as the DS9 set. I hate Paramount/CBS using these jumbo Epik Pak cases as always (1 for seasons 1-3, 1 for seasons 4-6 and a smaller third one for season 7), and really would have liked to pay a bit more for nicer cases, but packaging quibbles aside, it's really a great economy way to pickup the entire series for those who haven't purchased it before.

As with DS9, the discs read copyright 2017 on the label but the discs are made from the original masters (starting with season 1, being authored in 2003 and released in 2004).

I'll try to keep a watch on this thread and edit this first post if any important details are mentioned.

I hope Meijer stores will have this.

They had DS9 and Enterprise, so crossing my fingers.

Got mine in. 13 disks scratched beyond the point of play. My DS9 set had 17. Sigh. Another send back.

I've seen a ton of scratched and scuffed discs with both this one and DS9 as well - usually this concerns me, but with these sets I was able to back up all the DS9 discs without any warnings or errors, and I'm halfway through the Voyager set now also without any problems. Unless I run into a disc that gives read errors, I won't bother exchanging the set with Amazon in order to go through the hassle of examining all the discs in greater detail and trying to make a non-scratched set.

The only set I had problems with was the Enterprise blu-ray set.

They were too snug. The tabs on the hubs were too big, I had to file them down a bit to get the discs out. When I first tried to get a disc out the disc bent, so I stopped and used my fingernails to file the tabs down. I had to do that on the majority of the hubs.

Got mine in today. One loose disc was scuffed I'll have to check, the rest seemed secure and okay. But wow, that is a lot of Janeway. I would have preferred it to be how they did the DS9 packaging (ie, Ship on the front, 3 people on each case). It just looks a little odd. Other then that, glad to have it at a good price since we're never getting the blus...

Edit: Just watched some of the Special features and wow, am I glad they didn't keep that other woman as Janeway. She was terrible.

ugggg, I got the series as a B-day gift on release date. I have three discs that came off the spindles in transit and scratched the discs enough to cause skipping. does anyone know the paramount home video contact information so I can see if they can help out with replacements? Best Buy won't do a return at this point

lol, ironically I worked for a place here in town that used to do that. Ran the machine actually, I know how they work and it should be an easy fix. I can probably ask my old co-workers to buff the discs for me on the machine, but I was hoping that Paramount would fix the issue as they did for my Blu-ray copy of TOS Season 2 that had a boned up disc. See if they can help first before getting the disc polished if I can.

phe_customerservice@paramount.com

They did once replace a STTNG disc for me, but they never even replied when I emailed for scratched DS9 discs, so I ended up returning to Amazon and then mix/matching the sets to get the least scratched discs and replace the worst ones - while some still had minor scratching and scuffing, I had zero playback issues. Which is why I just always buy Amazon for their easiest, fastest return policy. They once even accepted a return WAY after the return period because it was a set with a lot of discs and one of the discs was actually defective as a pressing defect, and I hadn't had the time to watch the entire set to realize it. If you make your case with Best Buy, they might be understanding. Or just buy a second set from Best Buy (or Amazon even), replace the scratched discs, and then return the second set with the swapped discs for a refund due to being damaged/defective. Yeah, those cases are the worst, especially the hub that's just attached to the back of one of the cases with glue. I took out the back of case discs and put them into another case so they wouldn't be prone to falling out again.

Me too. Especially since I emailed them on the 29th and have them in hand on the 31st.

I'm starting to loathe these giant sets of Paramount. They always seem to have discs jump the hubs and end up scratched. This was my first one that was this badly scratched though. The others were light surface scratches and never cause playback issues

I just got Voyager Complete Series in the mail today. Second attempt. First one 2weeks ago was utterly damaged before shipping. Every disk loose and scratched. and both cases and hubs and page clips broken.

Speaking of...
When these were released in 2017, they had three cases. 1-3, 4-6 and 7.
Both of these had only two cases... 1-4 and 5-7.
Has there been a repackaging?
Are these bootlegs?
I can't find any info online at all, except from back in 2017.

Have to admit, the samples look pretty amazing. Even though the 2 I watched didn't have any SFX shots so I don't know how good those upscaled.

Tempting to request access...

The two best ways to check if a DVD is a bootleg (since the packaging and discs themselves can sometimes be pretty convincing in appearance) are, if you have a DVD drive in your computer, 1) check if the discs are single layer when they should be dual layer (bootlegs often compress the video and may strip out some audio options to make space so that they can use cheaper discs), and 2) use some of the software out there to take a look at the discs and see if they are copyright protected (bootlegs aren’t).
