The first speculation about the release for Paramount's last two original STAR TREK movies on special collector's edition DVD has surfaced at The Digital Bits
. As previously reported, STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER will not be an updated director's edition like many, including director William Shatner
, had hoped. But it will be a two-disc set with a host of extras like STAR TREKs three and four.
Shatner has recorded an audio commentary track for the fifth feature, and pal Leonard Nimoy may be joining him for both remaining films, if their conversation at the end of the STAR TREK IV commentary is to be believed. STAR TREK VI: THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY will also not be a recut version of the film, unlike director Nicholas Meyer's STAR TREK II, which was released last summer. ST6 will arrive on a similar two-disc set and both films will, of course, be in anamorphic widescreen format.
Digital Bits reports that fans may be able to look forward to STAR TREK V's arrival on the DVD format before the year is out; while STAR TREK VI may not beam down until sometime in early 2004. The most recent release in the series, STAR TREK IV, hit shelves in March.
