Paramount confirms 2016 release date for third J.J. Abrams Star Trek

It's been generally known for some time now that Paramount was targeting 2016, the 50th anniversary year of the Star Trek franchise, for the release of the third J.J. Abrams film. At the CineEurope conference in Barcelona today, Paramount confirmed that "Star Trek 3," as it is currently being called, is indeed slated for release in 2016. Roberto Orci will direct and also pen the story together with J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. While the film seems to be moving along at a fairly steady pace, there is still no word on plot details nor casting rumors, although tweets by Orci appear the indicate filming in the spring.

DVD Talk breaks down "Chain of Command" Blu-ray release

When the Star Trek: The Next Generation remastered project reached the first (and greatest) cliffhanger in the series, "The Best of Both Worlds," the producers decided to pay proper tribute to the landmark story with a feature-length standalone release. The trend has continued with "Redemption," "Unification," and now "Chain of Command." The powerful sixth-season episodes in which Picard is captured and tortured by Cardassians, have been merged into one long story complete with special bonus features available on the standalone Blu-ray only. To help you dig into the special release, Randy Miller III of DVD Talk has released a comprehensive breakdown.
