The effects for ENT were in 720p, upscaled to 1080p for Blu-ray. TrekCore talked about it in their season 1 review.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Enterprise effects were mostly rendered at 480p due to time constraints.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Sounds good! And I have no problem with another company doing the effects again, as long as CBS-D is there this time to make sure everything stays consistent.

Can't wait to see the trailer tomorrow at the BOBW event.

And awesome that we only have to wait til July for the release!

What the heck? Is the GUINAN? When was she ever a main cast member? I guess we will be getting Jellico on season 6, and Q on the season 7 cover?

Yep, that's why CBS-D is trading off with another VFX house. So they can keep the schedule that CBS management set. CBS Home Video wants all 7 seasons out in 3-years. So that means 2 in 2012, 3 in 2013, and 2 in 2014. So Season 5 should be released for the holiday season this year.

I feel ya, I've been going through the two released seasons (as I have time) by eliminating the lamer episodes (unless I have a soft spot for it) by following Bernd's rankings on Ex Astris Scientia, which I generally agree with, and skipping episodes that get less than a 5.

Yeah that's the only questionable ranking I've seen. I mean it's not great but Shades of Grey is far worse.

Modern Video has pretty good credentials. Were it not for the cronyism with HTV, they might have been in from the beginning. Either way, all seems to be well now.

With CBS-D handling the conform, Gabl doing the planets, and CBS-D consulting on the visual effects, this should be a slam dunk.

Guinan on the case, interesting. They cycled through the whole cast, but skipped Wesley. Then of course, they didn't put in Yar and Pulaski while they were on. I bet we'll see Ro Laren on season 5.

So four seasons in, Picard has made the cover each time (obviously), with Riker twice, and Guinan, Troi, Worf, Data, Crusher once.

I'm not skipping any episodes. It's been years since I watched any of these episodes, easily over a decade. So far I am enjoying all the episodes a lot more than I thought I would.
