Re: Star Trek : Stardate Collection on 09/10/13

I already have all of these in the all-encompassing DVD box set from Paramount which my wife (then girlfriend only ) bought for me as a holiday gift one year...it's an amazing set, containing two discs for every film entry and collects all the original cast films with the Next Generation cast variants in one complete box. The transfers aren't really that bad (sure, The Motion Picture through The Final Frontier are a bit shoddy and noisy) and the Next Generation casted entries got pretty rambunctious DTS tracks along with Dolby Digital variants (the earlier Shatner/Nimoy et al films all received Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes).

From what I have seen, I was not that impressed with Paramount's initial "broken up set" run of these films on Blu-ray picture quality wise, so I'm gonna stick with my somewhat hard-to-find and quasi-collectible 10-film DVD box set for these, even as an avid fan...

Plus, there's something sentimental about the fact that this was the first big gift from her and that it's pretty much my favorite big box set in the entire collection...

the pq and aq for the set BLOW the DVD set out of the water. I have the same DVD set as you. not only that the captains summit special features disc is probably one of THE best special features I've seen on disc EVER.

I'll take your word for it; but I'm still sticking with the DVD set. I didn't care for previous incarnations of the Blu-rays when I demo'ed them at a Paramount press event prior to the public release of the "broken up sets" and then subsequently read the reviews by some of my friends over at Home Theater mag; I just didn't think the encodes looked all that great.

I dont have the complete set, I still have the first three films on VHS so an upgrade would be well worth it. I look forward to it although the price around $150 (up here in Canada) for the bluray box set may be a little steep.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

oh, they're far from perfect. but on a 120 inch screen the dvd's look PAINFUL. most of the reviews who grumbled over them were just eating sour grapes that they didn't get 100% perfect restorations like the 2nd film got (which easily looks the best)

I have the exact same set but bought them all one at a time. I'd think that for a box set all the cases and covers would match...
