Warp Five 75: Singing the BLUs Part One / by Norman Lao

Enterprise Season One Blu-Ray Review.

Enterprise Season One on Blu-Ray is the visual extravaganza that finally offers the fans breathtaking 1080p high-definition picture and 5.1 sound. This Blu-Ray set is also packed with a wealth of brand-new special features and bonus materials. The most notable additions to this set are the two exclusive documentaries that were recorded specially for this collection: The "In Conversation" retrospective with Brannon Braga and Rick Berman and the three-part "To Boldly Go - Launching Enterprise" documentary. These exclusives alone are worth the price of the set!

The "In Conversation" retrospective with Brannon Braga and Rick Berman is a candid, raw, and visceral recounting of their collective experiences with Enterprise and Star Trek in general for the past 18 years. However, the real gem for this Blu-Ray set is the three-part "To Boldly Go - Launching Enterprise" documentary. I give this Blu-Ray set my highest recommendation solely on the merit of what I learned from "To Boldly Go", as it answered a great many questions that left fans in the dark about controversial choices that plagued the series from the start.

Running Time: 1 hour 39 minutes 53 seconds
