  • is reporting that in May 2001 Paramount Germany will be releasing the entire first season of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' spread out over six DVDs, followed in August by the second and in November by the third season. The DVDs will include the original English version in Dolby Digital 5.1 sound format, and the dubbed German version in Dolby Surround. These DVDs, as any other European DVD, will not be playable on regular American DVDs, so importing them will likely not be a possibility for Americans wanting to get TNG in the new digital video format.
