I know they shot the ships on film, and that's nice and all, but what about the evasive maneuvers when the ship simply sits there, the same 5 or 6 shots of 'standard orbit' or warping past?

Yeah, and why does Picard have to do the same stupid two-finger-pointing gesture every time he says "Engage!"? They should CGI it so sometimes he flips his hand, like Kirk, or gives the helmsman the bird. In fact, why have him say "Engage!" all the time, too? After twenty-five years, the fans are bored of that. They should get an impression artist to come in and loop over Picard's lines, so sometimes he says, "Punch it!" or "Let's burn rubber, baby!" or "Pedal to the metal!"

You know, change things up a bit. If I'm going to be buying a digitally remastered version of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the last thing I want to see is Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Thanks for the laugh.

They could loop in Kirk's line from the end of CotEoF: "Let's get the hell out of here."

Here's the clip, by the way: http://youtu.be/lfTXYoKcjgc?t=2m18s

It would probably need to be sped up a bit (or cut shorter) because it would have to match the timing of the original. I can't see that happening, sadly.
Oh, you are absolutely right! I remember seeing The Menagerie in theaters, and that shot was amazing!! That is now on the list!

Mike Okuda, anyone else involved with TNG Remastered, please consider this seriously!

Yup, and I also hope that Best of Both Worlds winds up on the big screen for a limited engagement.

Funny...but still, the finger pointing isn't an effect...we're talking about FX here that don't significantly change the story, but could be used for variety's sake...much like TOS-R added new bases and a Romulan BoP to the Kilingon D7s they were using. Still...if they use mostly original footage, I doubt any of these changes will be made, unless they go full CGI after the sampler disc.

Aha, but then people would have to deal with the second part, where shots of Worf and Data firing at Borg drones were recycled from the first. Tougher to sneak by than the shots of the Enterprise firing and being fired upon that were also recycled.

Re: FX/editing wishlist/technical/related discussion for STNG-R

I saw BOBW at the Museum of TV/Radio here in NY about 15 years ago, in SD and the crowd really enjoyed it! Would love to see a one-time HD theatrical presentation. The show of BSG's Razor was a lot of fun, as well as HD Menagerie.
