Luckily for me, the wife loves the show every bit as much as I do. That being said she sometimes struggles to see the difference between SD and HD unless it's staring her in the face!
Usually end up having the BD and the DVD side-by-side. As far as TNG's concerned, the BD and the DVD, are like chalk and cheese.
Loved the final shot of the episode as well, with the Enterprise in Earth orbit. Time for a screen grab and a new desktop wallpaper I think!
