Interesting insight from that interview with her. Once Gene was gone that was it for her. It was also interesting that it seemed at least some of the cast was jealous of her higher salary.
That caught my attention as well. Was she really as big of a star as it implies back then. I only know her other than TNG from her days on the original Star Trek and then she joined LA Law. Like Bill said, Whoopi's was probably higher.

She was paid more than some of the main cast? Really? But she was only credited as a special guest star through the entire season. I would think it would be the same amount at most.
My guess is that since Roddenberry asked her, and the show was looking more likely to succeed, she was able to negotiate a better salary, and/or she had a better agent negotiating for her.

I dunno. The two episodes they picked to show in theaters from season one was pretty random, Where No Man Has Gone Before and Datalore. They at least picked decent episodes though.

It will not happen, but it would be awesome to see Contagion on the big screen. To see a copy of the Enterprise explode in High Def on the big screen,would be spectacular.

Shades of Grey.

Unless of course they want fans demanding their money back!

Speaking of Diana Muldaur, I was searching through Youtube and actually found a video from January 2012 where she does talk about her time on TNG. It's this kind of thing I hope is on the set.



Her TNG talk starts at the 15 minute mark and she does get a bit of info wrong regarding Gene Roddenberry's death. Also, I think the end of this segment about why she left is revealing and might be why she never came back.
Thanks for sharing that excellent find. I only watched from 15 - 30 minutes as that seemed to be the limit of her talk about TNG, but what an insightful 15 minutes!

Also great to see she's still smoking 50-a-day.

I was thinking Measure of a Man and Q Who?, but I may be way off the mark.

No way they will be showing the top 2 episodes of the season! They want people to get the Blu-Ray to get the good stuff. Maybe one of those episodes, but I can't see them showing both.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Robert Meyer Burnett's Twitter feed continues to be worth following. From an hour ago:

"Reading Rainbow huh...well...we MIGHT have looked into that...MAYBE we did...one never knows now, does one...?"

Sounds highly promising.

Earlier in that Twitter conversation, someone mentions that the final episode of the sitcom Webster in 1989 featured Michael Dorn as Worf, which I never knew. Memory Alpha reveals the character was transported to the Enterprise-D, so perhaps it was even shot on the TNG sets. Could this be the kind of material that's being unearthed for season 2? (I doubt the Webster clip will be the height of artistic achievement though, but seeing it would be nice.)

I'm also hoping they've snagged an interview with Whoopi Goldberg. It would be a shame if she didn't participate given how comprehensive the interview pool is.

I suspect "Q-Who" will be one of the two episodes used for the same reason "Where No One..." was used, to best showcase the remade/mastered effects. "Measure of a Man" would probably be the other due to the extended edition of it. But glad to hear that there'll be an even for the season, the first time around was a blast.

Oh come on. These Blu-rays are presumably targeting people who have seen TNG's second season before, probably own it in a previous release. They'd be more than willing to shell out the cash for the episodes on Blu-ray after seeing them on the big screen, and the big screen airing is a bonus. So it comes down to what episodes would be best served, and two fan favourites - especially in an uneven season - seem a no-brainer.

I'd also expect the extended version of "Measure of a Man" to be the episode shown, as Trekker expects. I wonder - and vaguely hope - if it'll air in Europe at all. I caught "The Menagerie" on the big screen here in Dublin back when the TOS blu-rays were being advertised, and that was quite an experience (there's something about seeing an episode you've seen a hundred times with a big theater audience, laughing uproariously at some of the jokes and so on).

Oh, and I may as well project now: If they do this for season three (and why not?) it'll be "Yesterday's Enterprise" and "The Best of Both Worlds Part I". There's the most obvious two picks imaginable.

Actually, in a way, that would be the perfect thing to show in the theater. It would serve as a great preview to many of the HD restored episodes of the season! Only problem is that it contains so much season one footage too...
