Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Season 2 announced! And with a large pic of the cover art.

http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Sta...-Blu-ray/17450

Coming December 4, with the two commentaries Trekcore revealed and what looks like the next instalment of the documentary begun with 'Stardate Revisited'.

Curiously, there is an 'HD Extended Version' of Measure of a Man, but also a 'Hybrid Extended Version'. If they've found the negative that allowed them to create an HD version, I wonder why we need a hybrid one (which I assume splices in the scenes from the VHS copy from Melinda Snodgrass).

Time for a new sticky thread?

Re: The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season 1 Discussion Thread

And now Robert Meyer Burnett is alluding to what sounds like a terrific recent development for the season 2 set:

Incidentally, sorry to just jump in with announcements when I'm virtually new to the board. Hope that's not a faux pas. I've been reading the TNG-R threads for a while and hope to contribute more often.

It's been great reading comments from others who are as psyched as I am about this project. I'm consistently surprised by how ambivalent the Trek fans I know IRL are about this!

Not at all. It's funny though, I was just about to post the news when I hit preview and scrolled down to check if anyone had beat me to it... and sure enough, someone had!

I too am suprised by the mention of a "hybrid extended version" of "The Measure of a Man." It does seem as if certain extended scenes weren't located on film and they decided to do a (probably seamlessly branched) version with upconverted SD.

And I'm puzzled by the "Q Who?" commentary. Forgive my ignorance, but who is Don Berman? Anyone know?

Good question. I can't find any reference to him online. Either this is a member of the TNG-R team, or the marketing department have made a mistake and this is actually Rick Berman on the commentary.

Burnett did tweet recently that he'd been chatting with him (and apparently he was in quite a humble, reflective mood), so if he was in the studio perhaps he sat in on the commentary.

Cool. This could be my favourite season of the entire series.

Watching S1 is nice with the nicer images, perticularly the episodes I like, but the pretty pictures can't mask some brutally clumsy writing. I'm looking forward to Season 2.

Its a very underrated season... And while pulaski is somewhat of a mccoy wannabe, shes a much more interesting and entertaining character than the boring beverly crusher. Lots of people hate her because she was "mean" to data, but I liked her early skepticism of him.

The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season TWO Discussion Thread

The season 2 cat is out of the bag with a December 4 release date. Here's the place to discuss the sophomore season episodes and the hopes and dreams held for them in all their Blu-Ray glory.

"Measure Of A Man" is likely my favourite TNG episode overall so I'm really interested to see its extended version.

The only value I can see in providing two versions is if, as you say, not all footage was located and they had to create two extended versions, one in full HD with what scenes they cover recover the negatives for, and a second, longer one with some upconverted scenes, making a total of 3 versions on this set.

Providing two versions of the same extended episode makes little sense as far as I can determine, but perhaps I'm not thinking laterally enough. Hopefully the full press release will clarify this.

Incidentally, I'm looking forward to Trekcore's interview with CBS Digital. How's that coming along, FrontierTrek?

Can't wait to see the glorious HD detail of the Royale and all its patrons with their period piece costumes.

Also, I'm VERY interested in seeing Nagilum in HD. From what I understand they'll have to redo this since it's SFX in space, I hope they knock it out of the park.

I'm excited about the theatrical screening that was mentioned in the article. Hmm, I'm guessing either Measure of a Man and Q Who? or Q Who? and The Emissary.

A matter of honor, I hope. It always felt very movie like to me. That scene with picard and riker shooting phasers on the holodeck would be cool in the movies.

... and I want to see that bird of prey on the big screen again.
