Re: The bird is out: ENTERPRISE on blu-ray

Well then I hope CBS decides to go for six discs sets.
Given that six discs sufficed for the 26 episodes of season 1 of TNG, I see no reason why they would need more than that for any other 26 episode season sets.

At least I hope so, because I'm having my custom BD covers for Enterprise signed at Star Trek London next week, and they only fit standard armaray, which can take a maximum of six discs. I'll take that gamble.

If they did six discs for TNG, I don't see them using any more than that for ENT.

Re: The bird is out: ENTERPRISE on blu-ray

Well for Enterprise I'd see expect only 5 discs for the Blu Ray sets, since Season 3 was only 24 episodes long, and then Season 4 was only 22 episodes in length. With TNG Season 1 the 25th (Conspiracy) and 26th (The Neutral Zone) were on their own disc. So if there is a 6th disc for those 2 seasons (and TNG's 2nd season) it'll probably be just Bonus Disc (just like what happened with the 2002 TNG's Season 2 DVD set).

I'm dismayed that this is coming out before DS9 or Voyager but I suppose ENT doesn't need as much remastering.

I predicted it would be the next series, its simple really, only the FX require upconversion, everything else is ready to go. I will be buying this set also!

A must-have extra: a video produced about the "lost" 5th season they planned.

I'll second that!

With Doug Drexler's NX-01 refit in motion... and lots of CG work to illustrate all the "What If" scenarios.

I'd imagine they'll be a roundtable discussion of some sort. Either a cast reunion (preferred), or a bunch of uber fans complaining how it wasn't how they imagined a prequel to be (not so much)!

In A Mirror Darkly Remastered

Please, please, oh please add new cgi to these episodes.

The Defiant exterior is not a physical model. It is a cgi model. Move it around more. Add TNG or Balance of Terror style deflector shield flares. Change the photon torpedo fx. Show more Defiant interiors. Add more animated bridge displays. Show exterior shots of the Defiant entering and exiting warp. Show more of the Gorn cgi model skulking around before caught. Show the Tholians in the starbase and in the ships reacting to the Defiant being stolen.

The blu-rays will not have new FX created for them, it's not that sort of project.

Besides, "It is a cgi model. Move it around more." is often the reason that CGI sticks out horribly.

What would be cool for season four is an option to watch each multi-parter contiguously. It'd be a fairly simple thing to implement, and I would love it...but I know there's little chance. Just dreaming.

Re: The bird is out: ENTERPRISE on blu-ray

As it is, Enterprise's CGI already managed to wag the "This is not real, this is incredible fake" flag with the already existing CGI, when compared to the models in TNG, DS9 and Voyager. So, No we do no need CBS doing more CGI on this series.

lol what

The CGI on Enterprise is miles ahead of any of the effects of any of the other shows. It's not even close.

Actually, they don't. All aspects of this show were done in HD from the get-go. The effects may well have been done at 720p rather than 1080, but 720 is still HD.

As I said, ENT is available in HD right now - from iTunes.

ENT's CG was better than traditional model work? Agree to disagree.

The CGI on Enterprise was better than that on Voyager and DS9 because it benefitted from the latest developments in the field of visual effects. But as proven by the TNG Blu Rays, CGI simply can't surpass model work when it comes to realism and sense of scale and detail.
