CBS is releasing a special feature-length edit of “The Best of Both Worlds” on Blu-Ray to coincide with the release of Season 3 of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The special release will come with its very own exclusive set of Borg-themed special features, including a featurette, all new audio commentary, and gag reel. These features are set to be exclusive to this disc, and because of the feature-length nature of the edit, the audio commentary won’t be split over the Season 3 and 4 sets.
