So I got Season 5 along with 'Unification' and only have a couple more discs to watch.. Good Stuff! :o
I was a little disappointed inthe extras of Unification.. only 1 deleted scene, only 3 cast interviews (Warf, Dr Crusher, & Cmdr. Cela), and Nothing about Gene Roddenberry's death..
Maybe that will be on the final disc in the season 5 series that I haven't gotten to yet.. :-\

Forgot it was out this week, looks like some of the Best Buys near me are sold out, Target has it but the price is higher.

Have they been putting different extras on the separate discs?  I haven't been getting those so the only extras I've seen have been on the season sets.

Target was cheaper than Best Buy here..

Yeah the dual episodes that they put on separate DVDs have more extras and interviews that are not on the season DVDs

Target here has it for $78, Best Buy $58.

That sucks about different extras.  Eventually I may pick the single discs just to have them.
.....
My quest to get it this evening: Target #1 had it for $76, Headed up the street a few more lights to Best Buy and they were sold out (label on the shelf was $58), Target #2 had it for $68 so I got that one.  Yes, I have 2 Target stores within 2 miles of me, and they are only about 1/4 mile away from each other on the same road.  And they often have slightly different stuff and sometimes different prices.  When they opened the one in the Springfield Mall I figured they would close the older one, but several years later and both are still open and both are always filled with people.

Weird cause Best Buy here had it for $74.99 and Target right next door had it for $69.99 :o

Just finished all of Season 5 and yeah the extras on the last disc had a whole segment about Gene Roddenberry.. Pretty good overall :o

I had forgotten about the second to last episode 'The Inner Light' about how intense of an episode it was.. :speechless:

Yes, Inner Light was an awesome episode.

I watched the extras on disc 5, thought the editing on the first half of the special was odd, I would rather have seen the entire interview with Gene all at once instead of chopped up and interspersed with the writers talking.  And some of the writers segments were too long.  The second half was well done.

Only episode I watched was Ro Laren, love all the episodes with her.

And what is it about Ron Moore, I've seen a lot of interviews with him and listened to a lot of his commentaries, but I can't get a feel for what kind of person he is.  Half the time I think he's a good guy, the other half of the time I think he's an arrogant prick.  And those extremes sometimes switch several times in one interview.

Armin Shimerman has a cool reward up on the kickstarter for Diani & Devine Meet The Apocalypse.  He will record commentaries for 2 DS9 episodes.  A bit pricey at $200.  The kickstarter ends this evening.  They need to get to $100K but have a backer that will put in $5K if they hit $95K.

It is odd they haven't set a date yet.  When one set is released the next one usually gets announced.
I really want to see Relics in HD, I hope the Dyson sphere and crashed ship were done as models so there is extra detail on them....

The Digital Bits is usually pretty good a finding rumored release dates but I can't find any info there.

I did do some searching and found pictures of the Dyson sphere set models, so it should look pretty nice in HD.
