On December 15, the final season of the original series will be released on Blu-ray and details have been released on what will be included in the set.
Fans purchasing the Blu-ray set will see an unaired alternate version of the original Star Trek pilot, Where No Man Has Gone Before, for the first time.
The alternate version of the pilot was acquired by a German film collector who “recently brought it to the attention” of CBS/Paramount. This version has an alternative monologue by William Shatner, different theme music and closing credits. It is presented in three parts with “1970s-style act breaks.”
The season three six-disc set includes all twenty-four episodes of the third season and each disc is Mobile BluTM and BD Live enabled. Special features include several panels from ComicCon International 2009: The Anthropology of Star Trek, The World of Rod Roddenberry and a twenty-minute piece hosted by David Gerrold (The Trouble With Tribbles.) In addition, the set includes: Billy Blackburn‘s Treasure Chest-Rare Home Movies and Special Memories Part Three, To Boldly Go, Collectible Trek and Star Trek’s Impact.
