Wow, they are different. Although I think the NTSC version actually sounds lower than it should be, it doesn't sound like Picard as much as the PAL version does. Also, what's the reason for this change?
I'm tone deaf so it hardly makes any difference to me. Of course, if Jean Luc were squeaking like a chipmunk, I'd object.

See http://www.trekbbs.com/showpost.php?...79&postcount=9 for the background. It's a ubiquitous problem with NTSC to PAL conversion. The problem goes away with HD as many different frame rates are supported.
