“Star Trek” Coming to HD DVD—With Phaser Remote
The 10-disc HD DVD edition of “Star Trek: The Original Series” will be available in November.
Set your faces to stun: Toshiba and CBS have entered into a partnership that would unleash 10 discs in HD DVD.
The crew of “Star Trek” is about to boldly go where it’s never gone before—into the world of high-definition.
Toshiba just announced a partnership with CBS to release the original series on HD DVD. This fantastic voyage will kick off with a 10-disc set—and that’s just season 1.
Each disc will be a combo HD DVD, with standard-definition on the other side. Other features include a new 5.1 soundtrack, picture-in-picture video commentaries, the ability to compare visual effects in the re-mastered episodes versus the originals, and a detailed interactive tour of the Enterprise.
We reported not too long ago that the 10-disc HD set will cost $199, but the company isn’t quoting anything lately. They are, however, willing to throw in a Phaser remote to sweeten the deal and cushion the cost.
Is Kirk ready for a high-def close-up? Season 1 of “Star Trek” will be available in HD DVD on November 20.
