Hot! New Products and Info
Some new information coming out about things that I believe that are important. Lets start with apple, they have released yesterday a new 20" iMac. Well the screen is impressive but I believe that the CPU is lacking in some power. No other real improvements have been done with the iMac but there is the Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 now. If anyone is interested the picture is below. Now turning from apple new products to something most trekkies have been waiting for, Star Trek Voyager is comming to DVD. I took the cover art from the digital bits and here is what they are saying.
Now then... the big news for today. Paramount has officially announced the DVD release of Star Trek: Voyager for 2004, starting with Season One on February 24th. Additional seasons will follow every two months throughout the year until all seven are released. Season One will include all 15 first season episodes on 5 discs, in their original full frame format, with newly remixed Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. Extras will include the featurettes Braving the Unknown: Season One (includes new interviews on the creation of the series), Voyager Time Capsule: Kathryn Janeway (a new interview with Kate Mulgrew on taking the role), The First Captain: Genevieve Bujold (rare footage of the actress originally cast as Janeway), Cast Reflections: Season One (new interviews with cast and crew looking back), On Location with the Kazons (a tour of the desert locale set), Red Alert: Visual Effects Season One (behind the scenes effects highlights), Launching Voyager on the Web (a look at the first official website to promote a new Trek series), Real Science with Andre Bormanis (on how the writers try to get things accurate) and Lost Transmissions from the Delta Quadrant Easter eggs (additional interviews with the cast and crew). No SRP has been set, but look for it to be under $100. Here's a look at the cover art for Season One, and the whole series. -THE DIGITAL BITS
