    Not exactly totally unexpected but the latest TV Zone magazine has published next years release schedule for Star Trek DVDs:

    Voyager Series 1: 26th January
    Voyager Series 2: 26th March
    Voyager Series 3: 6th April
    Voyager Series 4: 4th May
    Voyager Series 5: 8th June
    Voyager Series 6: 6th July
    Voyager Series 7: 1st August

    Star Trek: TOS Series 1: 5th September
    Star Trek: TOS Series 2: 3rd October
    Star Trek: TOS Series 3: 7th November

    Looks good :smashin: but pretty much as the rumours suggested/promised. Of course dates are probably subject to change but TV Zone are normally fairly accurate. Lets hope for Enterprise in 05 (haven't seen any of this series yet - been waiting for the DVD).

    On a seperate but related subject TV Zone reports that Enterprise is now airing in High Defintion in the US which I suppose suggests that one day we may see a HD release of this series.

    Why anyone would want Voyager on DVD? Especially at almost £600 for the 'privilige'.

    Your joking right? I love Star Trek: Voyager (and DS9 and TNG)! My only regret with the DVD releases is that they are releasing them faster than I can actually watch them (on Season 4 of DS9 at the mo, Season 5 is sitting on the shelf!).

    I also love star trek, but the trouble with having them on dvd is the fact they are all filmed in 4:3 which is a serious turn off for me personally. It's a pity they didn't film the brilliant Enterprise in widescreen, ah well maybe the next star trek franchise will finally get it ;)

    It [Enterprise] was (or is, if you prefer) made in 1.78:1 widescreen.

    Edit: I understand it is made in 1080i, by the way

    Didn't I see Enterprise on Channel 4 today was widescreen? I could have been imagining it - I only saw it briefly while I was flicking channels!

    Enterprise is in both High Definition and widescreen, somebody pinch me here. The episodes of Enterprise I've seen on Sky One were in 4:3, mind you almost everything on that channel is, but they are allowing more widescreen programmes by the day. Maybe next year's new series will be in widescreen :eek:

    So they can sell them in 4:3 then when that cash cow is flogged they will release them in widescreen and then all the trekkers can buy them again.
    Then when that cash cow is flogged they will release them again with DD 5.1 and all the trekkers can buy them again.
    Then when that cash cow is flogged they will release them again in Hi def and all the trekkers can buy them again. And so on.

    Bit like Star wars really. :thumbsdow

    Whilst I can see where your coming from rigman I do think your being a bit harsh!

    Prior to TNG DVD release I was fully expecting single DVD releases of each series, 3 (maybe 4) episodes per disk and priced at £15-odd per release. Not to mention I thought it would take 10 years to get all the episodes out on DVD. Instead Paramount have taken the boxset approach saving me hundred of pounds and getting the stuff on DVD faster than I could have ever hoped. And they have given us a 5.1 DD mix for each series so far! Can't comment upon the quality/state of the extras as I haven't viewed them but generally I am extremely happy with the way Paramount video have released TNG, DS9 and soon Voyager.

    I appreciate not everybody wants the whole series so (from their view) it's not such a good policy. But IMHO Paramount couldn't ave got it better.

    I don't think you can critise any future release in High Defintion either - as the HD format is not yet agreed upon (AOD v WMV v BR-ROM) you can hardly blame Paramount for not considering a HD release yet. And we will be rebuying most (all?) of our DVDs when a format is decided upon anyway...

    just saw the ST: Voy R1 packaging and extras on DVDAnswers
    http://www.dvdanswers.com/index.php?r=0&s=1&c=2748&n=1&burl=

    Colourful :) Good extras though.

    Doesn't mean I'll buy it though, next year I need to complete my DS9... just 4 seasons to go LOL

    Can't wait to see what the Voyager R2 will look look like.

    Hopefully a bit more...well...a bit more conservative. Oh well I suppose it's content that counts.

    Yep, lets hope it's a LOT more conservative.... :eek:

    Hopefully some kind of mixture between the DS9 & STTNG R2 boxes.

    I wonder what they have in mind for The Original Series? Something even more psychedelic than those Voyager Boxes :zonked:

    I just hope that they do something with the packaging to stop discs cracking.

    My discs from seasons 1 to 3 of DS9 were cracked. After a year a couple of my TNG discs are also cracked. I even got brand new boxsets with damaged discs.

    I have had to put them in amaray cases.
