Re: Yesterday's Enterprise missing man

Well if they ever do a TNG-Remaster I would like to see the following happen with this episode:

The Enterprise-D alternate be replaced with the one from AGT.

Kvort or Neg'Vars in place of the Big BOPs. Or maybe a combination somehow.

More weapons-fire.

Visible damage to the E-D.

Better-looking Enterprise-C with moar damage.

Oh yeah and I want to see a freak high-voltage arc explode Wesley Crusher with the fragments of his demise taking out Riker and Data.

This plus eliminating Wesley Crusher, Commander Riker and replacing them both with Commander Jack Crusher as was suggested above.

Re: Yesterday's Enterprise missing man

Can they replace entire actors like that? I thought a remastering just updated the sound and F/X?

Re: Yesterday's Enterprise missing man

Well the first draft did have Crusher being decapitated, perhaps that would have been a more fitting "valentine to the fans"

The first draft had most of the characters dying horrible battle-deaths if I recall.

The early draft was "Riker's throat cut, Data electrocuted, Wesley Crusher decapitated".

I doubt Wesley's decapitation would ever had made it into the finished product.

Personally, I think that we are only around 10 to 15 years from being able to actually replace live actors in scenes with the likenesses of other actors.

And they do have the image of the actor that played Jack Crusher and a fairly long monologue of his voice from the episode "Family".

No. I think its better this way. Actually, they probably should've excluded one or two more of the regulars that actually showed up (excluding Tasha). The odds are the senior staff would have been more different than what we saw. They could have had Jack Crusher as Picard's first officer. No Wesley.
Oh...what could've been.

Maybe not even that long. In Terminator 4 they are going to digitally impose Arnold circa 1984 over the face of the new T-800. I'd say with that ability now here in about three years we'll be replacing actual actors completely.

^I agree. There's a tv advert in the UK at the moment, "featuring" Bob Monkhouse, a comedian who has been dead some years. He's up, walking and talking dialogue he's probably never spoken in his lifetime. I think they could do it now.

Re: Yesterday's Enterprise missing man

So if they were redoing "Yesterdays Enterprise" would everyone like to see bigger badder Klingon ships (a Neg'Var with two Vorchas) battling an upgunned Enterprise (All Good Things similiarity) with Doug Wert as Commander Jack Crusher replacing Riker?

If they were going to do all that, then why not made some changes to the Ambassador class U.S.S. Enterprise as the model in the finished episode doesn't look that great or detailed?

^ I don't think that they should upgrade the Klingon's to Negh'Var's, but maybe a redesigned Bird of Prey or something to represent that K'Vort Class would be a good idea.

I'm sure the TNG model shots will be replaced with CGI for any "remastering".

Re: Yesterday's Enterprise missing man

How long was the Galaxy class in the drawing board phase, 20-30 years? Maybe when war broke out they already had the plans too far along to remake the class, so they just went ahead and made it but with more facilities for military pursuits, such as the absence of science labs and recreational facilities. I'd wager the inside of the ship was really what changed in the alternate Enterprise.

EDIT: Oops I forgot we were talking about Worf. Continuity-wise, I agree that Worf being the Klingon commander attacking the D would have been a long-shot at best. That being said, it would've been awesome. Kinda like how Worf was in the mirror universe.
