Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation will soon be able to see the series on Blu-ray beginning next year.
The Blu-ray release will begin in January of 2012 with a sampler including the pilot and several popular episodes.
After that, the first season will be released on Blu-ray later in 2012 and subsequent seasons will follow thereafter.
“Fans have been clamoring for a high-definition release of Star Trek: The Next Generation,” said Ken Ross, Executive Vice President and General Manager of CBS Entertainment. “Transferring the series to high-definition presented difficult technical challenges, but our team has come up with a process to create true 1080p HD masters with true HD visual effects. We can’t wait to show fans how pristine the series looks and sounds with our upcoming Blu-ray releases.”
The TNG sampler (Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Next Level) will be released on January 31, 2012. The single disc will include: Encounter at Farpoint, Sins of the Father and The Inner Light. The sampler will sell for $21.99.via StarTrek.com
