The seminal first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation is coming to Blu-ray on July 24.  Although there will be no new special effects, the trailer shows the vast difference between what was previously available and the cleaned-up Blu-ray image.  The full details including special features were revealed today in a press release.  There discs are loaded with promos, featurettes, archival footage, interviews, and a gag reel.  (I’ll bet Patrick Stewart and LeVar Burton were an absolute hoot on the set of the Starship Enterprise.) Hit the jump for the full rundown, plus box art for season one.
