Magnificent! Really excellent. That first photo looked like it came right out of the original episode!

I've been a ST collector and geeko-nerd for years and I've never seen a Botany Bay so well detailed! Well done, sir!

Recently, I just had to pick up Star Trek 3 the search for Spock. It's not that great a movie, but I still have a soft spot for it. Plus it's got all the commentaries and stuff too.

I actually think Star Trek 3 is somewhat under rated.

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.

Just a friendly reminder the ST TNG Season 7 Blu Ray will be available on December 2 from Amazon, OR just go directly to Best Buy and pick it up there without having to wait for shipping 8)
Target and Walmart do not appear to be displaying it's release on their websites.. :-\

I ended up ordering season 7 from Amazon hoping there are some good extras, wasn't going to get this set but the price isn't that bad, and now I'll have all of them...

In case anyone doesn't know, this year thanksgiving (Nov. 27) was the 50th anniversary of the start of filming for the first pilot, The Cage.  The 11 foot filming model of the Enterprise wasn't delivered until the 29th of December, not sure if it was used at all for The Cage, by the time it was delivered the first pilot was pretty much rejected and the studio had not decided to do the second pilot yet.

Both Amazon and Best Buy have Season 7 for $57.99 and 'All Good Things' for $14.99 and since I'm leaving for Mexico on Dec. 10, picking these up from Best Buy will give me time to watch them before leaving..  8)
And Amazon's 'Free Shipping' seems to take an average of 4-5 days to arrive, Even Though There's an Amazon Warehouse just an Hours Drive South of Me! >:(

I wonder why this set is cheaper, possibly because there are a lot of people like me that wouldn't have bothered if it was as expensive as the last set?

Oh, reading more about the timeline of what was happening 50 years ago, the 11 foot model did get filmed before being put into storage and some of that did end up in The Cage, then the model went into storage while they decided whether or not to make the second pilot.

I would love for Parmount to just compile all the unseen bloopers from seasons 1-7 onto a DVD. Now THAT it something I'd buy because unlike every episode of TNG it's not something I've seen a hundred times.

I noticed the BSG release also, the time doesn't make sense, May?  Why the wait?  Of course being out in Germany on Blu-Ray for a year already doesn't make much sense either...
