All the CGI in that Best Buy feature are based on the Enterprise-refit in Star Trek III. There was no Enterprise-D design even established at the point the digital effects in the feature were produced.

Thanks to the wonders of HD I just noticed that Jonathan Frakes has a bandage around his right index finger in "Sarek" and "Ménage à Troi".

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I have no idea how that CG looks in motion, but it doesn't look that bad at all. Sure, it's nothing on the models that we finally got, but that shot there really isn't offensive for a mid 80s product.

Yup, definitely glad they decided to go with models. TNG already had enough going against it in that first season. The last thing it needed was a cheesy CG Enterprise flying around.

I'll take good ship models over CGI anyday. Sure you can do way more with CGI in terms of movement, but it always looks so fake to me.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

The gray square pattern used on Q's 21st century soldier uniform pops up a lot in later episodes, and HD really makes it obvious:

It's everywhere. It's in the badges on Worf's sash, part of Finn and Devos' clothing in The High Ground, and on the pressure suit bag in The Hunted.

Forgot how good The Hunted and The High Ground were. Probably the two best "message" episodes TNG produced.

They both do a very good job of mixing talk and action.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

One thing I learned from the Best Buy VFX documentary was that the 6ft model had some sort of strobing or pulsating lights effect in the Bussard collectors. I don't think I ever saw it on screen but it was discussed and visible in the documentary.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I found a minor glitch in my DVDs which I bought cheap. On the first disc when I try to scroll to episodes it freezes up. That it shuts down my player. It did this twice but the first time it did not. But pressing play all, there is no problem.

I didn't notice any issues with disc one of my set.

I could be a fluke or I just need to clean it. Like I said it did not happen the first time.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

My set arrived, and it looks absolutely great, no glitches or anything.

I forgot just how good some of these episodes really are, and have just finished The Defector.

What a great score for that one, and I loved the action beats in the opening act.

A real good pace, and it really plays the tension beautifully.

Is there an error on the contents? I went to watch the Tribute to David Rappaport and it wasn't where the insert said it should be.
