So no new wrecked ships, just new fires lighting the old ones up.

Darn, looks like they still aren't replacing the shot of the 2-footer next to the Borg cube.

HD version of the trailer was just released and looks freakin incredible.

And thankfully the bridge scenes look normal again, and aren't super bright and blown out like in the first trailer.

Oh my god that looks gorgeous. Also, these trailers that CBS is bringing out have been excellent, much better than anything we have seen for "Into Darkness".

Re: "Best of both Worlds" - Special Bluray Release

1:13 - the saucer separation shot is still CGI. I guess they never found the original film (perhaps lost after being used in Generations)

2:00 - I wonder if that's how the Part 1 to Part 2 transition will be accomplished. Either way, the greatest moment in TNG history is going to be truncated, so I'm only watching this once for novelty's sake, and then sticking with the separate versions.

2:20 - destruction of the cube is spruced up with CGI. I like it.

CBS-D sure did a great job making the 4-footer look presentable.

This would be a great opportunity to add deleted scenes if they were any.

The ships in the graveyard scene are very well defined. The explosion at the end was fantastic!

Re: "Best of both Worlds" - Special Bluray Release

Looks like the opening shot of the Enterprise over Earth is Tobias Richter's 3D mesh. This is probably one of those elements that was moved down the line into another episode's collection.

I'm SO glad they didn't add a stupid explosion ring to when the Borg cube blows up.

That would have been such a Lucas thing to do!

Re: "Best of both Worlds" - Special Bluray Release

The only small complaint I still have with this two-parter.... are those goofy looking rainbow-colored phaser beams they constantly use on the Borg. I get that they had to look modified, but couldn't they have come up with something that looked a bit... cooler?

Cooler = More money

I get the feeling this separate BOBW Blu-ray release is to help pay for the added time and effort that CBS-D probably put in to make the BOBW look as best as possible.
