From what little we see of the Yamato I like how it seemed like a crappier version of the Enterprise. It didn't have the wood railing and the Ready Room seemed a bit less posh.
It did have the wood railing.
It did, but it was covered by a gray/green blanket or fabric. I always found that very odd:

I think that's because they actually have the console torn apart. The cover is probably there to protect the finish.

^I'd say it's just an inexpensive way to make the console look different on the small 80s television screen.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I honestly just thought it was neat whenever we saw another Galaxy class on Star Trek, which was never that often (though more on Deep Space Nine, obviously, especially during the Dominion War).

Wow - the Yamato captain looks way different than he did in my memory. I guess 24 years will do that...

Another reason I'm enjoying the Blu-rays, so far.

yeah too bad all the ships in ds9 battles get blown up in like 1 or 2 shots (guess they stopped using shields by then)

I don't remember any Galaxy class ships going down in those battles. It was all Miranda and Excelsior class ships with an occasional Akira that died.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

So just how many versions of Measure of a Man are we going to get? Seems like there's both an "HD Extended" and "Hybrid Extended" version now.

Which I guess means they were only able to find some of the missing footage?

I know I saw at least one galaxy class get pretty badly damaged (giant explosions all over the hull) by one or two shots. It might not have gone down but it seemed pretty silly

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Trekcore seem to think there's something quite amazing to come on the S02 Bluray not yet announced.

What are the chances this could be a never before seen episode?

Don't forget that in the later seasons and DS9 we always saw the other galaxies with the Voyager bench seat.
IIRC, the only other Galaxy Class bridge we saw in the whole of Trek apart from the Enterprise-D and the Yamato was the Odyssey, and that appeared to be a redress of the Excelsior/Enterprise-A bridge that was more recently (at the time) the Prometheus bridge from "Second Sight" (which would go on to become the second Prometheus & Equinox bridges in Voyager).

From the wording of the description on that TrekCore page, it sounds like they were able to find the original film footage of extended scenes only, i.e. footage trimmed from existing scenes already in the final episode, and that any scenes that were completely cut from the episode couldn't be found, and will only be in the Hybrid cut.

That's my theory anyway.

Absolutely none?

Very little. It'd be more likely to hear a commentary by the Borg Collective during "Q Who".

Which I'd actually like, BTW.

This. No such episode exists, for one thing. It's more likely to be recovered deleted scenes or a some kind of obscure special or commercial (like Riker when he did those PC commercials). Or some lost Gene Roddenberry commentary or something.

Or. you know, maybe Measure of a Man isn't the only episode getting an extended cut. "Shades of Grey" with entire episodes instead of just clips?
