Seasons 1 of Star Trek: The Original Series beaming to Blu-ray

The first season of the original STAR TREK television series is scheduled to arrive in a seven-disc Blu-ray set on April 28. Previously available on HD-DVD, in its new incarnation the first season episodes will be available in their original versions and in the enhanced versions from a few years ago (which updated the special effects with relatively unobtrusive computer-generated imagery). The discs will be filled with bonus material, much of it ported over from the HD-DVD, plus some new features, including an option to hear the soundtracks in the original mono or in 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. There will also be pop-up trivia and picture-in-picture commentary, an interactive tour, and home movie footage filmed on set.
