Hopefully Paramount gets their act together and does a proper remastering of all ten films for a better HD release in the future.

(Although TWOK looks great for the most part, it has a few color timing issues which have made Regula look blue in most -- but not all -- shots. I'd be fine with the change if it were consistent, but it isn't.).
Yeah, in my opinion, this is the worst offending shot:

DVD: http://movies.trekcore.com/gallery/a...9/twok0716.jpg
BLU-RAY: http://movies.trekcore.com/gallery/a...twokhd0627.jpg

They must've lost or ignored the timing reports which either specified a warmer look from what was there on the negative or perhaps they corrected away the intended warmer look of Regula as shot. ILM may have lit the miniature with orange colored gel and the new color timers turned up the blue channel to correct for it.

Either way, it's a screw up... and Paramount is unlikely to revisit the film on Blu-ray.
