Also out this month, alongside the season set, is the standalone release of Unificiation. TrekCore have also confirmed that will include a new audio commentary, featuring Jeri Taylor with Mike and Denise Okuda, as well as the new documentary, From One Generation to the Next, and a deleted scene.

Also included will be previously commentaries, as well as deleted scenes, featurettes, and a gag reel. Plus several new documentaries:
...a multi-part documentary, In a Time of War, which “offers fans an inside look at the making of the series groundbreaking third season.” Writers and the Enterprise production staff discuss “the complexities of plotting the Xindi story arc along with the development of the key themes seen in the show’s pivotal third.

In another new featurette, Temporal Cold War: Declassified, the “creators, cast and production team reveal details about the original story arc that was never fully explored; in addition, the group discusses how the temporal cold war would have ended if the series had continued.”
