Fans of Deep Space Nine and Voyager got an answer as to why Enterprise is being released ahead of those series. “It’s a massive undertaking to go to in and meticulously rebuild DS9 or Voyager from scratch in high definition with the same process being employed on TNG,” said Ken Ross, Executive Vice President and General Manager, CBS Home Entertainment. “Enterprise was finished and broadcast in HD, so practically speaking, it is much easier for us to turn it around quickly and release it into the market, while we are still releasing seasons of The Next Generation. The fact that the show was HD-ready allows us to give fans an opportunity to revisit the series and also offer an in-depth exploration on the making of the series and its significance in the Star Trek canon by producing all-new special features along the lines of the material we’ve been producing for the TNG Blu-ray releases.”

    $130 for what now?

  • Bobby

    I am not offended that they released this before DS9 (my personal favorite), or Voyager. Honestly, I was surprised that they did TOS and TNG bluray before they did Enterprise, considering that Enterprise was shot in HD.

    Even though demand for Enterprise is likely lower than any of the other series.

    I love the cover art that the fans didn’t pick…. Lol what was the point of having fans pick if they’re just going to choose something else…?

  • Patrick

    No Malcolm or Phlox on the cover? Weak.

  • rtms77

    My eyes are bugging out with that Canadian price. I don’t recall TNG coming out that much for the first season, or did I miss something?

  • Wes

    Star Trek BR prices for box sets are insane compared to nearly every other franchise or show.

  • Kang the Unbalanced

    Dunno. What was the point of having a writing staff when Brannon Braga was just going to shit all over everything in the end anyway?

  • Mike

    So were dvds when they were the cutting edge… it’s just what they do.

    And why is it $20 more than the US price? Our dollar is worth more so the price should be either on par or lower than the US price.

  • TBonz

    Bite me. ;)

    That’s almost twice what I pay for TOS and TNG Blu- Rays (and both those shows required an extreme makeover, while Enterprise does not). I could buy a newly released Blu Ray of one season of a current show for half what Enterprise will cost. WTH?!?!

  • CZeke

    Can’t wait for this… which is too bad, because I’ll have to. I can’t possibly justify buying it until the price comes way down. That’s how it was with the DVD sets too until recently… figures.

    Malcolm was weak, he had less emotion than the Vulcans.

  • A Canadian

    Don’t forget the fact Canadians have pay more to add French to the box set. Also taxes and additional fees charged to Canadians. It’s the same for books. Yes we vet hosed in the GWN.

    When I used to collect Voyager on VHS, I had to buy used/second hand copies as I couldn’t afford them otherwise. I’ve held off buying any of the series on DVD because they were too expensive, when they finally brought the prices down to a level I could afford, the blurays started arriving at ridiculous prices. So, now, once again I wait for the prices to fall so that I can buy them. I understand why they do it, because those who really want and can afford to get these sets will always pay top dollar.
