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.
It's listed under the episode "The Most Toys" below the options to "Play episode" and "Play episode with episodic promo"
Ah thank you. Was rushed yesterday and didn't get a chance for a proper look.

Interference is very unlikely, but the Blu-ray player may have been overheating. Was the DVD player on at the time underneath it?
plugged in but not on. Its working now, maybe it was overheating somehow.

One of my Blu-ray players (a Panasonic DMP-BD75) was overheating and acting weird a while ago, sometimes spontaneously turning off in the middle of a movie. I drilled 25 small 1/16 inch holes in the top case right above the AVC decoder chip and heat sink. The problem went away.

I'm not saying you should do this, but if the problem reoccurs, it might be something you may want to consider as long as you're careful and take the cover off before you do anything, of course!

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Watching the Defector, I love the after the opening credits chase of the scout ship and the Romulan cruiser. The ships in HD look great. The close up of the scout drifting over the Enterprise is really nice. I really wish they followed up on this episode in later seasons maybe when they had Spock on Romulus. The shots at the end with the Enterprise turning into the Romulan ships, is excellent. What Enterprise model was used for the shots in this episode, the details on it really stand out in HD. This is one of my favorite season 3 episodes.

This was the debut of the 4-foot miniature.

In the Hunted, they show the wrong deck number on the turbolift, shows deck 12 not 36 when they are chasing the fugitive.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Now onto the High Ground....what an ignorant view of terrorism. Deep Space 9 did a much better job. TNG steeped in moral equivalence liberal political correct BS which just dates the hell out of TNG. Picard was good at looking down his nose at people and making speeches. Can't call out your enemy because it wouldn't be politically correct and it OMG offend someone. DS9 and nuBSG took a more realistic view into such matters.

The episode looks great however.

Sure, DS9 did a better job, there's no doubt -- after all, one of its main characters was a former terrorist! I have yet to watch this episode on Blu, but I seem to recall Picard not only calling out his enemy (and chastising Beverly for arguing Finn's cause) but full-on decking Finn moments after he appeared on his bridge!

I would argue that the episode's view of terrorism is more simplistic than ignorant. Basically, what the episode has to say about terrorism is that it's bad.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

So a couple of observations....I found that the PQ has got worse as the season progressed. It may just be my sight though. Haha. Furthermore, whilst watching the multi part "Resistance is Futile" featurette I've noticed that the PQ of the selected clips shown appears to be a considerably better than that shown in the final individual episodes. Bizarre. The episodes look....cleaner somehow.

I just noticed how a turbo lift conveniently appears out of a crewmens quarters in Deja Q. Engineering always had either a turbo or jeffries access behind the pool table; I never really understood how that worked either.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I was watching the BOBW special edition last night, and noticed something slightly odd with the music mix.

When Riker is on the Battle Bridge, and says "We're about to intervene" the music ('Intervention' by Ron Jones) starts before he speaks. On the original SD version of Pt II the music starts after he says that line. There is therefore a couple of seconds of the intro to the track which is looped, as it then syncs up as the Saucer separates.

I'm curious to know if this is how it was on the VHS version of the combined episodes. If so, I'm assuming when the S4 bluray is released the music will go back to starting after Riker speaks.

I know it's only minor, but having listened to the music of BOBW a lot it really stood out for me.

q

edit: Just saw this mentioned in the Season 4 thread. At least it's not just me ;-)

I agree it's a fairly simplistic view, but looking back it still feels pretty bold and edgy to see the show tackling the subject at all-- especially a show as normally squeaky-clean as this one (hell, you got references in this ep to kids blowing up buses-- on TNG).

And you also have to consider that these aren't terrorists who are being driven by a corrupt and fanatical religious worldview, like the ones we face today. So there's probably a bit more allowance to show them being a bit more... reasonable and human (although I agree making the terrorist leader an artist-poet was a bit much).
