CBS Releases TNG Season Two Blu-ray Trailer by Trek fm

With less than a week to go before the TNG Remastered Season One Blu-ray set hits store shelves, CBS is already whetting the appetite of fans with a look at Season Two.

In this new trailer, fans get a first glimpse of “The Child,” “Where Silence Has Lease,” “The Measure of a Man,” “Contagion,” “Time Squared,” and “Q Who” in glorious HD. It’s incredible how the restoration process makes these stories feel new again, as viewers notice details they’ve never seen before.

In addition to episode footage, the trailer gives us a glimpse of one of the very special extras that will accompany Season Two—an intimate round-table discussion with the TNG cast, produced especially for the Blu-ray set.

Season Two is set for release sometime in the fourth quarter of 2012, and you’ll find this trailer as an extra on the Season One discs. For even more on the Season Two restoration, and to watch the trailer online, visit for an extensive interview with special features producer Roger Lay, Jr.
