Home Video releases:
Long before this original two part episode was made into a single "film" for the Stand-alone HD remastered Blu-ray release, these episodes were release together on both the 1997 Laserdisc and on the Columbia House VHS editions.
In The original 1996 VHS release they were sold as two separate tapes, Part II and then Part I, respectfully. This was done because, "Unification II" was filmed before "Unification I", due to when the guest stars were available to film their parts. Also, the Laserdisc version of this release contained chapter titles- which was rarely seen for most of the disc in this series. The chapter markers were repeated on the season 5 DVD, except for chapters 14,16, and 18, due to the fact that each DVD only contained 8 chapters. These chapter titles were also absent from both VHS cassettes.
