Star Trek Blu-ray Goes Back to the Future
Universal Pictures NZ has withdrawn from sale the season-one Blu-ray of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
The Paramount Pictures spin-off was to have gone on sale today but now will not be released for another month or so.
The problem is an “anomaly” with the 7.1 audio track on seven of the 25 episodes.
The six-disc set is still on sale in the US, where Paramount has opted to replace the faulty discs rather than withdraw all of them from sale.
Meanwhile, there’s no sign of seasons two and three of the original Star Trek being released here on Blu-ray.
Season one came out on Blu-ray a couple of years ago but no longer seems to be available and Universal, which distributes Paramount product in NZ, doesn’t have seasons two and three, which are out in the US, on its schedule for the foreseeable future.
