Few, if any, know about HTV or the lower quality visual effects. It's up to the fans to let the reviewers know something is wrong.
I was actually curious about that. I did a google search earlier to see who else was talking about TNG and HTV, but other than here, Trekcore, and a little bit on Blu-ray.com, I didn't really see anything.
Am I missing something?? I always assumed this was just one of dozens (if not hundreds) of Trek forums out there, but now it's kinda looking like the only one. That can't be right, can it?
