Interesting that he mentions de Lancie footage for a game, I wonder if this was for the Q VHS game that was never released? Would be great to see. It could also be for the quiz game for the PC that was released...

Oh and it wasn't Gowron in the TNG game, rather O'Reilly playing a rogue Klingon called Kavok.
If I were to take a stab, it's almost certainly the footage from the 'Star Trek: Borg" interactive movie game that came out in 1996.

Which would be cool to see in HD instead of craptastic AVI files. It was certainly a pleasant evening spent playing it back in the day, even if it's something you can only do once.

How would a VHS Game have worked anyway?

Something like, ok now, you have two options.
If you like the borg to attack now, fast forward 3 minutes and 40 seconds from now.
If you don't want them to attack, fast forward 7 minutes and 10 seconds. ??

In the TNG Klingon board game you play while the tape runs and you get interrupted at random times with new instruction. Usually it results in the active player missing turns or losing things you have to collect. Here's some people playing the game if you're wondering how it works.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I have a question regarding amazon pre-orders and the person I just talked with on Amazon support was no help.

For those who have preordered TNG from Amazon.com, when you pre-order the set, when do they actually charge you? The reason I'm asking is because I'm putting in the preorder and want to use a gift card. I expect the price to go down though, meaning I can use the entire gift card and not have to pay the rest using my other card. Will they charge me now if I put in the preorder now, or will they charge me when the order is shipped? Basically, should I wait to pre-order now or wait until the price goes down and then order it?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Amazon never charges for pre-orders until the item is shipping, because their price may change before release day. If you order today, and the release-day price is $55, you'll get charged the $55 on the day.

Thanks. I figured that was the case but just wanted to be sure.

There was a Q/Borg VHS game in the works, but it was canceled after filming started. More info here: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Star..._-_Borg_Q-Uest

I really hope to see this long-lost footage!

But if it ships at $55 and the price goes down again (not likely) while your copy is in transit, you're hosed. Amazon has a pre-order price guarantee, but that ends once the item is prepped for shipping. It's not like a retailer like Best Buy which will give you a refund if the price goes down within 30 days of purchase.

If it's like season 1 and 2, the price will drop from 90 to 60-ish on the Sunday before release.

For season 2, I didn't pre-order on Amazon until the price actually dropped, and as a result, it didn't ship until release day. I ended up buying it at Best Buy on release day and returning the Amazon copy, which arrived Thursday.

Even if the price does go down, I would much rather pay at 55 than 90. It wouldn't go down very much after that, considering that was the price of Season 1.
