The first season of Star Trek: Picard drops onto physical disc from tomorrow and Trek Central takes a look at the special features included on the disc.
Star Trek: Picard Season one arrives on Blu-Ray, DVD, Special Edition Steelbook and Buy and Keep from Monday 25th January in the UK, and we have some special sneak peek clips from the upcoming release.
Both clips come from the Picard Props featurette in which Prop Master Jeffrey Lombardi discusses his favourite prop from the first season, the 2399 Federation Rifle which is an evolution on classic designs seen in films such as Star Trek: First Contact.
Our second clip continues with Jeffrey Lombardi but brings in Concept Designer Daren R. Dochterman as they talk about the creation of the Romulan game Zhanaqi which is seen in various episodes of season one.
Star Trek: Picard season one has a whole host of special features that include behind the scenes production and design, deleted scenes, commentary, making off features and the Star Trek: Short Treks episode ‘Children of Mars’ which acts as a prequel of sorts to Picard. In total, the special features on the physical discs clocking in at just over 2 hours run time. Giving any Star Trek fan plenty to get stuck into.
The full list of special features is:
Make It So: The co-creators and Patrick Stewart discuss bringing the iconic character back to the screen, including what was compelling enough to warrant it and the obstacles they had to overcome to make it so.
Behind the Scenes: Each episode comes complete with its own behind the scenes ‘Story Log’ which covers how the episode was put together.
Episode One Commentary: Executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Akiva Goldsman and Michael Chabon, supervising producer Kirsten Beyer, and director Hanelle M. Culpepper provide commentary about episode one (‘Remembrance’) of Star Trek: Picard.
The Motley Crew: Working outside of Starfleet, Picard gathers his crew from across the galaxy. This special feature takes a look at the actors and characters that will travel aboard the La Sirena.
