If you're a Trekkie, you might like to read about this. Star Trek: Enterprise: The Complete Series is soon available on Blu-ray. Most of us know that this series was a bit of a stinker at times, but it's kind of nice to beam it down every now and then and have a peek. Especially on Blu-ray, where the effects are at their finest.

It features all 98 episodes digitally remastered in high-definition on 24 discs for the Blu-ray and on 27 discs for the DVD alongside a trove of special features such as commentaries, deleted scenes from select episodes and archival mission logs.

*Set in the 22nd century, a hundred years before James T. Kirk helmed the famous starship of the same name, Star Trek: Enterprise takes place in an era when interstellar travel is still in its infancy. Captain Jonathan Archer has assembled a crew of brave explorers to chart the galaxy on a revolutionary spacecraft: Enterprise NX-01. As the first human beings to venture into deep space, these pioneers will experience the wonder and mystery of the final frontier as they seek out new life and new civilizations.*

And hey, we're giving away a copy to SuperFans/Patreons! EDIT... Patron Johann won, yay!
