Star Trek Original Series Season Three Blu-ray Dated

Paramount Home Entertainment has unveiled plans to wrap up the remasters of the original Star Trek television series on Blu-ray Disc with the release of the third and final season on December 15.
Like previously released season one and next week's season two, season three will be presented in 1080p video and 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. The episodes can be viewed with or without the new and improved special effects.

Bonus features also closely mimic the first two sets with Billy Blackburn's Treasure Chest wrapping up. The complete list is as follows.
