Blu-ray will be boldly going to a time well before Kirk and Picard this March!

In an early announcement to retailers, CBS/Paramount has revealed 'Star Trek: Enterprise - The Complete First Season' for a Blu-ray release on March 26.

'Star Trek: Enterprise' recounts the adventures of the pioneers of space travel who ventured into the universe 100 years before James T. Kirk helmed the starship of the same name. Set in the 22nd century, 'Enterprise' takes place in an era when interstellar travel is still in its infancy. Captain Jonathan Archer (Scott Bakula) has assembled a crew of brave explorers to chart the galaxy on a revolutionary spacecraft: Enterprise NX-01. As the first human beings to venture into deep space, these men and women will experience the wonder and mystery of the final frontier as they seek out new life and new civilizations.
