It is an unfinished shot. You can see the finished one at 00:29 of the trailer.

Good. Although do remember, those trailer shots are temporary, "made for the trailer" shots and not indicative of the final product. At least isn't that what someone said...somewhere?

The hits (and by that I mean misses, unfortunately) keep on coming.

Notice that in the below screencap from "Up the Long Ladder" (recently uploaded by TrekCore to their Facebook page) all the light elements are misaligned to the left (windows, nacelles, bussards, deflector):

FrontierTrek, hopefully you can tell us if this shot, which is a mirror inverted re-use of the one in "The Schizoid Man" is also affected similarly in that episode.
Just to update for everyone... FrontierTrek has let me know that this shot is CORRECTLY composited in "The Schizoid Man." So, at least that disc isn't affected. But it's also slightly different in that it's not just mirrored, but also zoomed in just a tad (to match the original composition) and the ringed planet is smoother in appearance. So perhaps two different compositors worked on these shots.

Assuming CBS goes with a 2/4/6 schedule for HTV, I'm glad that Darmok is in season 5. If HTV did it, I have a feeling the "phaser out of the torpedo tube" shot would have remained as-is.

Yeah, what you're seeing there of the saucer shot is the Full Camera Aperture, not the intended TV Transmitted Area (they actually used an even smaller area than that -- see below) which is a smaller subset of that image -- just as you see in the trailer. It was never meant to be seen that way, hence why the model makers never bothered to complete the signage beyond a certain point.

From what one of the mods on Trekcore said, HTV may not be doing 4 and 6 afterall. That might have been a misunderstanding. All they could say right now is that CBS is doing Season 3 and that CBS's schedule remains flexible. I sincerely hope CBS handles the rest of the seasons. HTV has made an unholy mess of Season 2. Sorry if anyone disagrees, but it had to be pretty bad for me not to buy it.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

As someone who remains hopeful that the outcome of HTV's work won't look all that bad in motion and who is still convinced that some of the released screencaps genuinely look amazing, I must admit that even I'm somewhat disappointed in the lack of love that went into recreating the FX for season two. I hope at some point someone will come forward and acknowledge what exactly went wrong.

However ...

... that's something I don't want to see changed actually, as I don't consider these kind of things "mistakes". I mean, really, where in the series is it said that there isn't a phaser emitter mounted on the photon topedo tube? It isn't a mistake just because the technical advisors of the show or a fictional Technical Manual say so. So again, I wouldn't want them to change that.

Where in the series is it said there isn't an energy beam emitter mounted on the captain's yacht?

The shot in Darmok is one of the more notorious bloopers in TNG. CBS-D fixed the energy beam shot in the pilot. I'm sure they'll redo the one in Darmok too.

The energy beam from the pilot was just as ridiculous a "fix" as the one from "Darmok" would be. Sorry, I really don't see why those things must be "corrected". I mean, this is a fucking fictional spaceship. The energy/phaser beam can come from wherever it wants.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Since all visual effects such as phasers, torpedoes, and tractor beams have to be redone from scratch anyway, it takes just as much effort to make the beam come from the phaser bank or the captain's yacht. Why replicate a known error? The CBS-D team, judging by their results, were loving perfectionists, and they care where it comes from. Otherwise, who's to say the Enterprise can't go to warp in reverse? There's a "bible" for this sort of thing.

Non-experts? Did you know that HTV Illuminate is "...a leader in the business of high definition telecine mastering and artifact free standards conversion."? (http://www.htvinc.com/content/conten...out-htv&hx=553)
My favorite part about this page is the picture. Look at those gorgeous, state-of-the-art 17-inch CRT monitors! And there are 2 of them! Sparing no expense...

You have to admit, it would explain a lot...

NewHorizon, How did you go from my original reply...

Nothing is yet known about Season 4. The schedules and assignments at CBS are totally fluid and subject to change. All I can tell you for certain is that CBS Digital will do (and are doing) Season 3.

To break it down.
CBS Digital ARE doing Season 3.
CBS have not announced anything about Seasons 4-7.
CBS have not announced schedules, release dates or who is responsible for 4-7.

Startrek.com has an article about the second season release here: http://www.startrek.com/article/tng-...son-two-part-1

It doesn't acknowledge any of the issues we've been focusing on here, but JESUS FUCKING CHRIST! Is that pre-viz/test shot of Nagellum?! It looks fucking terrifying!

EDIT: Um, I really hope this is an unfinished shot.

http://www.startrek.com/uploads/asse.../BorgSlice.jpg

Ignoring the fact that it's missing the cutting/tractor beam (twice, the green from the main tractor and the yellow from the slice tractor), it also shows where the specially built close up model doesn't quite fill the screen as we can see it's just a floating piece of the saucer in nothing. Also, it's stupidly bright. AND it shows the cut off decals! It just says "prise" and "701-D".

It has to be a pre-viz/WIP right? But why is the smoke there? Oh god, please please please don't be a finished article. That's the money shot for the entire season ffs. It's got to just be a shot from the documentary showing off pre-vis. It's got to be. No one can be that incompetent.
Is this a joke? The article is about the special features. Roger has nothing to do with HTV or CBS Digital. He is part of the team who make special features for the sets. The shots are FROM the special features.

Well, like I said..."This might have been a misunderstanding" as in...on my part. Which, I clearly did misunderstand.
