Trek DVD details!

07.17.2009

Just in time for the holidays, you'll be able to take home one of the biggest films of the year. On November 17th STAR TREK will be available on 2-disc DVD and 3-disc Blu-ray with a ton of extra features. Don't believe me? Check out all the stuff loaded onto the Blu-ray:

DISC 1:

- Commentary—By director J.J. Abrams, writers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, producer Damon Lindelof and executive producer Bryan Burk.

- NASA News— This BD-Live feature gives viewers access to the latest NASA news about real space exploration. Learn about new mission developments and check out featured imagery from around the universe.

DISC 2:

- To Boldly Go—Taking on the world’s most beloved science fiction franchise was no small mission. Director J.J. Abrams, writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, producer Damon Lindelof, and executive producer Bryan Burk talk about the many challenges they faced and their strategy for success.
• The Shatner Conundrum
• Red Shirt Guy
• The Green Girl
• Trekker Alert!

- Casting—The producers knew their greatest task was finding the right cast to reprise these epic roles. The cast, for their part, talk about the experience of trying to capture the essence of these mythic characters. The piece concludes with a moving tribute to Leonard Nimoy.

- A New Vision—J.J. Abrams’ vision was not only to create a Star Trek that was a bigger, more action-packed spectacle, but also to make the spectacle feel real. Every aspect of production—from unique locations to the use of classic Hollywood camera tricks—was guided by this overall objective.
• Savage Pressure

- Starships—Abrams and production designer Scott Chambliss were careful to pay tribute to the design of the original Enterprise, but they also wanted to make it futuristic and cool for a modern audience. This chapter focuses on the unique stories behind the creation of the film’s starships.
• Warp Explained
• Paint Job
• Bridge Construction Accelerated
• The Captain’s Chair
• Button Acting 101

• The Alien Paradox
• Big-Eyed Girl
• Big Bro Quinto
• Klingons
• Drakoulias Anatomy 101

- Planets—From the frozen landscape of Delta Vega to the desert plains of Vulcan, Scott Chambliss and the art department had a number of radically different planets to create. Abrams’ desire to shoot on real locations whenever possible led the production team to a number of strange and surprising locations.
• Extra Business
• Confidentiality

- Props and Costumes— Property master Russell Bobbitt had the unique challenge of designing props that were both true to the original series and pertinent to today’s technology. Likewise, costume designer Michael Kaplan talks about how he designed costumes that paid homage to what came before yet were relevant and timeless.
• Klingon Wardrobe

- Ben Burtt and the Sounds of Star Trek— When famed sound designer Ben Burtt was hired to create sounds for the first Star Wars film, he took his inspiration from the original “Star Trek” series. Burtt jumped at the opportunity to pay tribute to the sounds that sparked his career with the sounds he created for the new Star Trek.

- Score—As a fan of the original series, composer Michael Giacchino embraced the challenge of creating new music for Star Trek while preserving the spirit of Alexander Courage’s celebrated theme.

- Gene Roddenberry’s Vision— J.J. Abrams, Leonard Nimoy, previous Star Trek writers and producers, and scientific consultant Carolyn Porco describe and commend the optimistic and enduring vision of Gene Roddenberry.

Extra disc for just "digital copy"

When Blu-Ray discs hold 50GB each, why does the [link] "digital copy" need an entire separate disc? This just seems like a waste of materials (never mind that the copy on disc 1 IS a digital copy).

Director's Cut?

I see an add at the top of this site for Star Trek - DIRECTOR'S CUT. If it's true, will this be automatically included on the Blu-Ray, or is this separate?

Psh. Shatner's the Lindsey Lohan of their time and J.J. is amazing. He was before Star Trek and he will continue to be.

And yeah, the Blu-ray sounds amazing. Can't wait. :)

What's up with all of the Klingon stuff? Were there even Klingons in the movie? Do you mean Romulan?

Not to nit-pick, but I'm a detail kinda guy. It would be cool to be getting a look at some of the designs for Klingons if they intended to put them in the sequel.

Nero broke out of a Klingon prison so yes, there were mentions of Klingons. They're arguably the most famous species in the Star Trek universe, they're bound to be mentioned in an article about Star Trek.

No doubt they are Star Trek's most famous villians. I was refering to the fact that the article mentions features talking about Klingon design and wardrobe. How/why is that on the DVD when there were no Klingons in the movie? Maybe there was a deleted scene with Klingons, but I doubt it. I remember the Joker being mentioned at the end of Batman Begins, but they didn't have features about his character and costume design on the DVD.
