Marketing scam

Dear Sci-fi Online

Firstly let me congratulate you on such an excellent website. I love your news and reviews sections and it's great to see that you are always way ahead of the magazines.

I was a little concerned to see that Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn is being released on DVD again not even a year after it was first released. Now, I may be a little cynical but is this not just a clever way of getting more cash out of us Trek fans? Why did they not launch extras on the original release? I have seen the line up of the disc (I read your review) and was mortified that the extras are not worth the wait! Fox did a similar thing a few years ago when they started releasing the X-Files videos. After a few releases they decided to launch them as box sets and so a lot of fans felt cheated.

When will they stop trying to make money out of us and instead concentrate on getting it right the first time?
