Now consider this a rumor, because Paramount hasn’t announced anything officially yet. But the Blu-ray Blog and others got ahold of an early press release of the DVD and Blu-ray versions of the new Star Trek mobvie, and goddamn is it full of awesomess (or “win,” as the kids like to say). Check it.

That’s a hell of a lot, and for the first time in a long time, I’m genuinely excited about watching some deleted scenes from a movie, if only to Greg Grunberg as Uncle Frank belittle young Kirk and possibly throw corn at him (actually, I’d much rather see Diora Baird as the other Orion non-Slave Girl, but let’s move on). Right now, the Trek home edition is set for October 8th, but write that in your calendars in pencil not ink.
