$116.99 is to high, looking for it to drop to $58.00 like season 1.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I can't stress enough how relieved I'm, seeing the new trailer for the BOBW BluRay. The quality from S1 is back, and the TNG looks better than ever before.

This is how remastering is done:

BOBW:



compared to messed up S2 release - Q Who:



The high quality remastering with that additional "little spark" from CBS is back, and leaves much to be desired for the butchered S2 work. I wish some day, when all the dust settles CBS would go back to S2 and re-remaster it in a proper fashion.

Suffice to say for now, I can't wait for the Trek holidays re-living the episodes like BOBW, Yesterday's Enterprise, Enemy, Defector and the likes.


And until that comes, just a few more:
This could have easily come from a Star Trek feature movie:


and the darkened Borg interior very much resembling the "updated" FC looks:

I knew the were gonna do that with the exclusive BOBW content. It's pretty much my favorite two eps ever so I'll probably plunk down the extra cash for it.

PS,

so glad were back to in-house remastering this time around. It's night and day.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Not too sure about the re-done Borg Cube explosion at the end of the trailer. Looks like they freeze-framed/slow-framed the explosion, then when the enterprise zooms off let it play. Original somehow looks better. Hope it's just an unfinished shot but I kinda get the feeling it's the finished version.

Someone helpfully posted a comparison video with the original version:

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

There's not any actual new footage that's exclusive to the BOBW Blu-ray, is there? I don't care about commentaries or anything like that, just the episode itself.

Unless you're counting the new, BOBW-specific gag reel, no.

Without a doubt I prefer the second one because it minimises that whole fireworks effect you get with Trek explosions sometimes....
The Borg Cube, the Caretaker array, a few others, this isn't Bonfire Night/July 5th.

Although unrealistic (though you could argue that its the ship atmospheres burning up) I much prefer the explosions in later series DS9 with the flames shooting everywhere, wish they'd gone for more that route with this too.

I wonder if Ron Moore will be smoking cigarettes and drinking Scotch while he does his commentary like he did on the BSG podcasts...


probably not I suppose...but it would be funny.

I certainly hope the smoking lamp is lit Those podcasts educated me in the joys of exploring the various bands of whiskey.

Looks like they managed to clear David Carson's "Yesterday's Enterprise" commentary after all!

Great news. You can tell that the guys at the top are fans and want the best product put there possible.

Imagine if George Lucas put that much effort into the various Star Wars DVD and Blu-ray sets.

Then the lightsabers might have been colored properly but all the other changes would have been even more perfectly realized...and equally unwanted.
