"At the end of history lies The Undiscovered Country." For Star Trek fans, that's February 27, 2004.
The two-disc special edition DVD set of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country is scheduled to be released on that date next year, DVD File reported. The movie, previously only available in a bare-bones DVD release, will be presented in anamorphic widescreen with a Dolby Digital 5.1 surround soundtrack. It is expected to sell for $24.99.
According to the DVD File report, the DVD will include audio commentaries by director Nicholas Meyer and the writers. Star Trek VI was written by Meyer and Denny Martin Flinn from a story by Leonard Nimoy (Spock), Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal, but the site did not specify if all the writers would be contributing to the commentary.
Like its predecessors, Star Trek: The Motion Picture through to Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, The Undiscovered Country's DVD package will contain several featurettes. These are entitled "Movie Making", "The Star Trek Universe", "Art Imitates Life" and "A Farewell". Storyboards, a production gallery and theatrical trailers are also included.
The Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country special edition will also be included in a new DVD box set of all six feature films featuring the cast of the original Star Trek. According to DVD Answers, the package has a tentative release date of January 27, 2004, and is expected to retail for $122.95.
