Yeah, I'd like to know if they also mentioned that there'll only be one release per year.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

Here is the full press release issued by CBS Home Entertainment:

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION®
TO BE AVAILABLE IN HIGH-DEFINITION FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER FOR ITS 25TH ANNIVERSARY

Star Trek: The Next Generation® – The Next Level Blu-ray Disc™

Will Be Released On January 31, 2012

Complete First Season Blu-ray Available Later in 2012


LOS ANGELES – The beloved series STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® will be transferred to high definition for the first time ever and released on Blu-ray™, it was announced today by Ken Ross, Executive Vice President and General Manager of CBS Home Entertainment.

All 178 episodes from seven seasons will be transferred to true high-definition 1080p for release on Blu-ray and eventual runs on television and digital platforms both domestically and internationally.

“Fans have been clamoring for a high-definition release of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® for years,” said Ross. “Transferring the series to high-definition presented difficult technical challenges, but our team has come up with a process to create true 1080p HD masters with true HD visual effects. We can’t wait to show fans how pristine the series looks and sounds with our upcoming Blu-ray releases.”

Transferring STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® to high-definition presented numerous challenges – The series was originally shot on film and then transferred to videotape, which was used to edit episodes together. In order to create true HD masters, CBS is going back to the original uncut film negative – all 25,000 plus film reels of it – and cutting the episodes together exactly the way they originally aired. The visual effects were all shot on film and will be painstakingly recompositioned, not upconverted from videotape. The newly cut film will then be transferred to true high-definition with 7.1 DTS Master Audio. Denise and Mike Okuda are consulting on the project.

While the first full season won’t be available until later in 2012, CBS Home Entertainment is releasingSTAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® – THE NEXT LEVEL, a single Blu-ray disc to give fans a taste of the series in HD, on January 31, 2012. The disc will include the feature-length pilot – “Encounter at Farpoint” – as well as two more “fan favorite” episodes, “The Inner Light” (Season 5) and “Sins of the Father” (Season 3). The single disc will be available for a suggested retail price of $21.99.

One of the most popular series in the STAR TREK franchise, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION®celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2012. It premiered in first-run syndication during the week of September 28, 1987 and ran through 1994.

Set in the 24th century on the Starship Enterprise, about 100 years after the original STAR TREK series took place, the series starred Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Jonathan Frakes as Commander William T. Riker, LeVar Burton as Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge, Marina Sirtis as Counselor Deanna Troi, Brent Spiner as Lt. Commander Data, Michael Dorn as Lieutenant Worf, Gates McFadden as Dr. Beverly Crusher and Wil Wheaton as her son Wesley Crusher.

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® won numerous accolades, including 18 Emmy® awards, and was the first – and only – syndicated television show to be nominated for the Emmy® for Outstanding Drama Series for its seventh season. It was also ranked #46 on TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time list in 2002.

It's bizzare, right? They reissued the same exact press release from September 28th, they just removed the September date. Other than that it's word for word:

One release a year is too slow. Two at least!

(I am basing this on nothing except my own eagerness to buy)

Hopefully they'll go to a two-per-year release schedule starting in 2013. Then the whole series would be out by the end of 2015. But one season per year is better than no seasons per year.

I predicted a new series 10-12 years after Enterprise, so by the time STNG-R is all released, we'll be lined up nicely for a new series!

...And, "Family Guy" will be all wrapped up, "Cosmos" will have already come out to rave reviews, meaning Seth McFarlane will be primed and ready to launch the newest Star Trek television series.

You'd be the last person I'd expect to be excited about a Seth McFarlane Trek series.

I would prefer a Ron Moore Trek series (though I love Seth's stuff).

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

One of the comments for Amazon's entry for The Next Level says that the original TNG broadcasts were 48 minutes each, and TNG-R will only be 43. Is either of this true? I find it hard to believe they'd cut 5 minutes out of each episode for the remastering...

They might be 43 for broadcast, but they wouldn't cut off 5 minutes for the disk.
