I'm pretty sure you can play imported games on a Saturn without having to make any physical modifications to the console, so if you're wanting the disk purely for the purpose of being able to play the game again, there are probably other alternatives.
And if you've never played Astal, I highly recommend finding a copy of it. It's the most singularly beautiful 2 dimensional game ever created, the backgrounds are simply amazing and the sprites are nice too. After I beat it, I went through it two more times with an invincibility code just so I could pay attention to the graphics. The music is quite nice and the gameplay is high quality as well. I'd go so far as to say Astal is the best side scrolling action game ever created.
And The Incredible Hulk for Saturn has one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard on a video game. I used to listen to music outside of the game regularly.

You can play imports on a Saturn with a cartridge, or with a reasonably simple switch modification.
The catch is that the Japanese version of Panzer Dragoon Saga is, as one might expect, in Japanese, and I'm not sure that the save-games would be compatible in any event.

With the port over to DS, I decided to get one more game for the GBA before I decided to give the console to my brother-in-law. While I can say that I hatehateHATE the 4Kids translation over to America, Konami has done it again with Shaman King.
