    You can purchase both seasons from either Vudu, Amazon instant, or Fandango Now.

    The discs are definitely worth it! I finished the first season a few days ago. The picture quality and surround audio were excellent. The special features and deleted scenes deepened my understanding of the production, the characters, and the plot.

    This is not a spoiler thread, so I'll hide my spoilers, but here are just two small examples of why I recommend the discs as a collection of bonus material alone, even if much that material can be hunted down on the web.

    Once deleted scene in particular cleared up some confusion for me:
    When Stamets was found unconscious, something was a bit off. Clearly we'd missed something that had happened on the other side of the locked door. Turns out the previous scene had been deleted.

    The final Season 1 bonus scene is a great setup for Season 2:
    Georgiou being approached by Section 31. (I love Michelle Yeoh in this role! She's clearly having a ball playing the dark mirror Georgiou.)

    Captains log supplemental: they way they pronounce one character's name drives me nuts. Don't read this if you don't want to be distracted every time the name is spoken.
    I knew a guy named Stamets who pronounced his name "stay-mets". There's a baseball player out there today who pronounces it "stay-mets" too. That leaves me wondering why it's "stah-mets" in all or most of this show. Maybe a more authentic Nordic pronunciation will be incorporated into Federation Standard in the future? Or not.

    Is the above the same as this video that was posted ages ago?

    Yes but I'm not fanboy enough to know what I'm missing without having it collected somewhere for me. I particularly enjoyed that scene. Plus much of the other bonus content is harder to find or unique to this release.

    The Season 2 disc set also contain two "Short Treks" appropriate to the story line.

    Saru's backstory, and the first meeting between Tilly and (Me Hani Ika Hali) Po.

    Perhaps the rest will be on disc someday too, though all the 10- to 20-minute shorts could be easily binged over the 7 days of a CBSAA trial.
