Space Rangers (1993) - North American Release (Region 1)

 

Release date [North America] October 15, 2013

 

It's been two years since this shortlived show has been released in Germany, see post below and now it's finally also announced in North America! All 6 episodes probably on 2 discs. The first episode was broadcast in the same week as the first episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Perhaps this is one of the reasons Space Rangers was cancelled so quickly.

 

Mind you, Space Rangers is not of the same quality as DS9 or Babylon 5 but it is still a lot of fun. You will see a number of familiar faces like: Jeff Kaake (Melrose Place), Marjorie Monaghan (Babylon 5, number One), Cary - Hiroyuki Tagawa (Nash Bridges, Babylon 5), Clint Howard (Apollo 13) and Linda Hunt (NCIS: Los Angeles). Another Babylon 5 alum will drop by for one episode is Claudia Christian.

 

As I said, it's not mind blowingly good but it's fun, it's cheesy, doesn't take itself too seriously. No further information but it's a good bet there aren't any special features on it and probably does not have any kind of subtitles. It's also a region 1 set so if you are from outside North America, you will need to have a region free player or you can purchase the German release if you live in region 2.

 

An Intergalactic Action-Adventure! By the year 2104, explorers have stretched civilization to the farthest reaches of the galaxy. They've discovered new worlds and learned to share them with new races. But even at the edge of nature's frontiers, two ancient forces still remain locked in mortal conflict: good and evil.

Space Rangers (1993) - Region 2 DVD Release [Germany]

 

Release date [Germany] September 23, 2011

 

Space Rangers, a tv show broadcast bij CBS in 1993, in the same week Star Trek Deep Space Nine also aired it's pilot. Perhaps one of the reasons Space Rangers only lasted 6 episodes. In September 2011 this tv show has been released on DVD in Germany, don't think it's been released in any other country. This release has a German and an English soundtrack, no subtitles unfortunately. 6 episodes on 3 discs.

 

Special Features : Booklet; Background info about the TV show; Interviews with the series creator, director and lead Jeff Kaake. Picture quality is of course not as crisp as you are used to nowadays, but very watchable. One surprising guestrole is for Claudia Christian, Ivanova from Babylon 5. She shows up in episode 4 "Death Before Dishonour".
