Speaking of grain, I don't know if this is due to the original negatives, but some areas of the episode have horrible grainyness, and others look spectacular. At first I thought it was a difference between dark and bright scenes, but I noticed some dark scenes looked great, and some looked very grainy.
Much like how you can now see scenes in TOS occasionally going out of focus, I get the impression the camera guys on TNG weren't quite as concerned with keeping the picture as perfectly sharp and clear as possible-- mainly because they knew that most of that extra detail was never gonna show up on the old TV sets anyway.
