Star Trek: The Picard Legacy Collection

Also released on Blu-ray later this year will be Star Trek: The Picard Legacy Collection, a fifty-four-disc Blu-ray set. This release will be limited edition and individually numbered. It will include the entire seven-season run of Star Trek: The Next Generation, all four associated movies, and the full three-season run of Star Trek: Picard, along with over thirty-five hours of special features.

This collection will also include a variety of exclusive collectables. Here’s the full rundown…

  • An exclusive edition of the reference book The Wisdom of Picard, with new cover art and new Jean-Luc Picard quotes taken from the final two seasons of Star Trek: Picard (which had not yet aired when the book was initially published)
  • A uniquely branded deck of playing cards
  • A magnet sheet featuring all of Picard’s badges, magnetized
  • Four Chateau Picard drink coasters

Despite the rich profusion of this set’s contents, Robert Meyer Burnett — who produced the TNG special features — has criticized the release on social media, lamenting that it will not include five already-released discs of two-parters that were edited together as feature-length “movies”. They include “The Best of Both Worlds”, “Redemption”, “Unification”, “Chain of Command”, and “All Good Things”. Explaining his belief that these discs should be included, Burnett said that, otherwise, “there’s documentaries, audio commentaries, bloopers and deleted scenes which won’t be part of the set.

Star Trek: The Picard Legacy Collection will be released on the following dates…

  • United States of America – 17 October 2023
  • Italy – 15 November 2023 (DVD/BD)
  • Germany – 16 November 2023
  • United Kingdom – 20 November 2023

In Conclusion

Whether you’re a first-time viewer of Star Trek: Picard‘s third season, enjoyed it so much you’d like to re-experience the entire season again, or found watching the third season disappointing but are interested in watching the special features, there’s something for everyone in its upcoming home media release. So, when it warps its way into stores, be sure to pick up a copy. Make it so!
