Outtakes and deleted scenes will be highlights of the upcoming Star Trek: Enterprise DVDs when they are released in box sets later this year, according to one unofficial source.
The Digital Bits is reporting from an insider that the multi-disc collections of Enterprise episodes will feature rare unaired footage. The original series "blooper reel", a collection of outtakes and jokes on the part of the cast, were a highlight of Star Trek conventions for many years, but it was extremely rare to find outtakes from the later series before the release of the DVD sets.
The first set of Enterprise DVDs, currently scheduled to be released in May, will also reportedly include "Enterprise Secrets", which are probably similar to the "Red Shirt Diaries" Easter Eggs on the Original Series DVDs.
It is expected that Paramount will present Enterprise in anamorphic widescreen and with audio in Dolby Digital 5.1. The series is produced in a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and the DVDs are expected to feature anamorphic widescreen presentation like those for Alias and The West Wing.
The original item is at The Digital Bits. Until Paramount confirms the specs for the Enterprise DVD sets, however, it shoudl be treated as rumour.
