I, too, prefer the lighting in the first two seasons, as I find it much more dramatic and
realistic. Surfaces and fabrics appear much more natural under those early lighting conditions.
Good article, as always. However, didn't someone in this very thread notice that the sequence of the ship entering the nebula in the beginning actually is
different from the original version? Something about the ship being placed in front of the nebula instead of behind it?
Also, I just knew there wasn't a 'P' behind Worf in the original version! Thanks for checking that.
The cloud passes in front of the ship at a slightly different time in the new version.
