The ships in the graveyard scene are very well defined. The explosion at the end was fantastic!
I'm glad they showed the explosion, because this is a good preview for Cause and Effect. It makes me wonder how CBS-D is going to handle the Enterprise-D blowing up like 5 times in that episode, if they are going to do anything additions or what.

jimbotron,

Agreed about them taking out what made the cliffhanger so great. I think on tha end I'm glad they are showing this feature movie in the theaters so we can see how they are going to do it. I still think we're going to get "Mr. Worf, Fire", a good amount of black screen to let the score play, and then jump right into the next episode without the "previously on". That would be the best way, and it leaves the drama intact.

The color, contrast and brightness are much improved from the season 3 trailer. No worries, CBS-D knows what they're doing.

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

Now that I've seen the trailer in HD, anyone notice how much better the shot with the cube and the two footer looks in CBS-D's hands? CBS-D took the same film elements and made the cube look menacing, real, and not like plastic. I compared the two shots in photoshop and the difference is staggering. Thank God they got rid of HTV.

I kind of like the blue mixed in there.

Yeah, I just compared them as well, and the new shot is a huge improvement. The Enterprise still looks like a dinky little model of course, but at least it's blended into the background better and the goofy looking sensor dish doesn't stand out as much.

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.
Noticed that too, pretty good replacement CG shot as well. Though I do hope the film element turns up in the future, quite like that pass of the 4 footer.

If you look at the shot of the saucer section firing at 1.15 in the trailer the phasers are fluctuating in colour. I thought it might just be an effect on the Borg viewscreen but the photons fired from the stardrive section are all orange.

I always liked the "rainbow" colored phasers.. so much more interesting than just a plain energy beam Guess it's a taste thing.

I did too. The phasers were showing the rotating frequency, instead of what we saw on Voyager where they say it was rotating frequency, but we only saw one color for the most part.

I spotted some CGI enhancements here and there. The explosion of the Borg Cube for instance doesn't look to me like the original effect. But check out the amazing new Borg interior at 0.34 seconds into the promo. As in "Q Who" the Borg in the background now move. You can clearly see a drone stepping into his alcove.

God, I hope so. It always bugged me that the Enterprise was spinning, spinning, spinning and then STOP, BOOM!

I wonder if Ron Moore will do a podcast one for "The Defector", seeing as how there isn't one on the disc...

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

Does anyone have any info on the BOBW mid-episode edit on the telemovie disc? This really is the deal clincher for me - a slapdash, awkward transition between parts I/II equals no sale.

The difference in the quality of the borg cube in BOBW compared to Season 2's Q-who is staggering. In Q-Who it looks like a low resolution matte painting. In BOBW its so clear and sharp that I can see ALL the little elements...
