Star Trek: TNG complete set coming in October

ST:TNG dvds

It's becoming clear that if you plan on buying every season of a TV show, at least the more popular ones, you might want to wait a couple of years (if you can wait, that is). They're coming out with more and more "complete sets" and if you buy the sets individually you're probably paying more (and missing out on some extras, though that's not always the case).

Here's another one. CBS/Paramount will release a complete set for Star Trek: The Next Generation on October 2, to celebrate the show's 20th anniversary.

Star Trek fans ticked off by Shatner's clothes

William ShatnerI'm talking about the clothes he wears in that Star Trek-themed commercial for DirecTV.

Obsessed nerds Trekkies Trekkers have a love/hate relationship with the ad. They love seeing anything Star Trek and love to see Shatner reprising his role as James T. Kirk (who, you remember, died a lame death after fighting Malcolm McDowell in one of the movies), but they have a few complaints:

  • the Starfleet badge is too small
  • the collar is too small
  • the belt buckle is wrong

My main problem with the ad? Shatner's hairpiece looks awful.

It's official: Star Trek animated series coming to DVD

Star Trek: The Animated SeriesThere has been buzz around the industry for months, but now CBS and Paramount have made it official: Star Trek: The Animated Series is coming to DVD on November 21. Check out the cool box!

The set will have a ton of extras too, including several features, a photo gallery, show history, wallpapers, AIM icons, and text (?) commentaries from behind the scenes folks.

This is great news, because people have been waiting for this show to come out for a long time. And it happens to be not just a cartoon version of a classic show, but one that actually stands on its own as a well-done, solid, dare I say even intelligent series. (Side note: I love the pic on the right. It makes it seem that the whole cast got together for a cast photo shoot, when in reality it's just a drawing, heh.)
