Star Trek Week: Star Trek Fan Collective: Alternate Realities

One of the smarter things Paramount has done lately with the Star Trek franchise is to package themed episodes from all the different series. The collections included ones focusing on the Borg, Klingons, Time Travel and the Captain’s. If you really dig Star Trek time travel stories, like me, than you can buy one collection and get all the best time travel stories in one package.

The newest Fan Collective, hitting the streets in September, is one that makes me quite happy. It’s an alternate realities collection with an obvious focus on the Mirror Universe episodes.

Here’s the breakdown:

Disc 1:
Mirror Universe

Mirror, Mirror – TOS
Crossover – DS9
Through The Looking Glass – DS9
Shattered Mirror – DS9

Disc 2
Mirror Universe

In A Mirror Darkly (Part 1) – ENT
In A Mirror Darkly (Part 2) – ENT

Parallel Dimensions

The Alternative Factor – TOS
Parallels – TNG

Disc 3
Twisted Realities

The Enemy Within – TOS
Turnabout Intruder – TOS
Frame of Mind – TNG
Shattered – VOY

Disc 4
Alternate Lives

Yesterday’s Enterprise – TNG
The Inner Light – TNG
The Visitor – DS9
Before And After – VOY

Disc 5
Alternate Lives

Timeless – VOY
Course: Oblivion – VOY
E2 – ENT
Twilight – ENT

The collection has my favorite TOS and ENT episodes (Mirror, Mirror and In A Mirror Darkly), plus two of my top five TNG episodes (Yesterday’s Enterprise and Parallels). I would have replaced Frame of Mind with Future Imperfect, but that’s a small nitpick.

The DVD collection is definitely making my early Christmas list.
