Paramount and CBS Home Entertainment are beaming another Star Trek series to Blu-ray on March 26, 2013 with the high definition debut of Star Trek: Enterprise – Season One.
Enterprise is set 100 years before the voyages of James T. Kirk and stars Scott Bakula as Captain Jonathan Archer. He and his assembled crew set out on the state-of-the-art Enterprise NX-01 spaceship to chart the universe during the early years of interstellar travel.
The Enterprise: Season One Blu-ray set spans six discs and is highlight by a new multi-part documentary with some segments shot as recently as December, 2012. All 25 episodes from the show’s inaugural season will be presented in 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
The new three-part documentary breaks out as follows:
Part One: Countdown – Chronicles the challenges faced by the producers and creative staff as they attempt to launch a new chapter in the Star Trek saga by making the then-radical decision to create a prequel to the beloved original series. Features all new interviews with key personnel including creators Rick Berman and Brannon Braga, production designer Herman Zimmerman, technical consultants Michael and Denise Okuda, writers Andre Bormanis, Phyllis Strong and more.
Part Two: Boarding the NX-01 – Follows the team as they begin the casting process and production on the series 2-hour pilot Broken Bow.
