I think Emissary, The Visitor & Trials & Tribble-ations would be my choices for a sampler if they went that way. They can include the updated TOS blu ray footage in Trials too as an added bonus.

Re: Michael Okuda: Buy TNG Blu-ray sets to get DS9 on Blu-ray!

Maybe it's not the TV stations that are not airing the shows, maybe CBS has put some sort of hold on DS9 for whatever reason and it's been yanked from syndication, like Enterprise was yanked from Syndication when CBS started to Remaster TOS.

But even though it would be nice to eventually see DS9 on Blu-Ray (and not the way "Trials and Tribble-ations" was done on the TOS Season 2 Blu-Ray) I'm surprised CBS hasn't put the Animated series out on Blu or announced that since it received its HD Remastering back in 2006.

Trials and Tribble-ations is too 'money' to waste on a sampler.

Many fans wondered why BOBW wasn't on the TNG sampler. It's simple - that episode was a potential gold mine, and look what happened. If BOBW was put on the TNG sampler, fewer would buy a standalone release or attend the Fathom screening.

Trials and Tribble-ations is DS9's BOBW.

I disagree. When I think TNG, I almost immediately think about The Best of Both Worlds. When I think DS9, Trials and Tribble-ations is the farthest thing from my mind.

You need episodes that the fanbase loves not episodes that are overtly nodding to other series. In my opinion.

If I were doing the sampler, I would have to include In the Pale Moonlight. Isn't that like DS9's most popular episode? I would also do Emissary and probably The Visitor, but I was thinking about episodes where we can spotlight the visual effects. Maybe Way of the Warrior.

Emissary, Pale Moonlight, The Visitor and FBTS (maybe) would make me happy. Pale Moonlight and The Visitor aren't too FX heavy are they?

Obviously, so he can say "Buy DS9 Blu-ray to get VGR on Blu-ray." soon.

Is there actually any original TOS effect in there? IIrc, all effect scenes are newly done for that episode anyway. If not, it hast to be mastered in multi-angle, of course, so you can choose original or updated TOS effects, just like you can on the TOS Blu-rays.

"Move Along Home" would actually look pretty good on Blu-ray; the episode had some great sets due to a runaway budget.

It's Star Trek! CBS's biggest cash cow. Eventually, they will release DS9, VOY, and TAS on Blu ray.

Way of The Warrior, and Favor The Bold/Sacrifice of Angels are comparable to BOBW, in a special effects showcase sense.

What about "Duet" as an idea for a sampler disc.

The problem with putting those CGI-VFX-heavy fleet scene episodes on a sampler disc is that it hasn't yet been determined if those scenes need to be completely redone for HD. If they do, I guarantee they won't be on a sampler.

Going by TNG, they had the pilot, a dark, set-bound episode, and a fan-favourite with a lot of bright, open scenes.

Translating that to DS9, maybe they could have something like Emissary, Necessary Evil and Indiscretion?

I don't think there will be a sampler though. For TNG it was a much-needed proof of concept, and filled the long gap between the announcement of the project, and the release of season one.

With DS9, we have an idea how good it will look thanks to TNG, and of course Birthright. I guess they'll just go straight in to season one.

For the sampler, how about Emissary, Duet, Little Green Men, and Way of the Warrior?

A mix of different styles and tones. A pilot, a tense dramatic episode, a comedy, and an action/VFX episode?
