Anyone else see the tear rolling down Fajo's face while talking to Data before he throws the liquid on him? I didn't think Fajo was getting emotional when talking to him.

I haven't watched it in HD yet but I seem to recall seeing that in the SD version as well.

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've noticed that the clips in all the features usually have a lower bit-rate that doesn't preserve the film gain as well. I suspect this is what you mean by things having a cleaner look, it may look cleaner but it's actually less detailed.

Did they change the color of the bridge carpet in Matter of Perspective? It's not that bright color blue/white that it was earlier in the season it is now a darker grey.

Yeah that may be it. That being said, episodes like "Transfigurations" didnt seem to fair all that well in terms of HD transfer. Many scenes seemed soft with overblown contrast. Its possibly just my TV though. haha.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Deja Q seems to be missing a bit of audio from Worf during the opening teaser, at 1:58, when Riker asks him to "contact all ships in the sector to rendezvous and join us in relief efforts" - he appears to say "Aye, sir" but there's no speech. Not quite sure it's recall-worthy though - but it is obvious!

Since I already watched The Best of Both Worlds on the dedicated disc, I only have Transfigurations left on season three.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I have to say that overall I'm disappointed with the audio on this set. Lots of muffled dialogue mainly coming out of the act breaks.

My wife was reading the other day while I was watching and finally she looked up and asked if the sound was suppose to be that way. I've tried changing audio settings on the discs, on the TV and have even went to a different TV/player in the house and had the same issue.

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.


-Chris
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.

I guess ignorant and simplistic would be a better choice of words.

I'm loving season 3 in HD I'm just watching a season 4 episode and I have to say watching it in SD is terrible now !!! So glad HD is the future !!!
I agree, the SD versions especially on DVD are unwatchable. Glad I sold my DVD set. For whatever reason the SD version of TNG always looked bad, it seems for the most part DS9 and VOY on DVD always looked better for the most part.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I enjoyed the commentary for Yesterday's Enterprise with Moore/Behr/Okudas.

They made a good point that I hadn't realized. The way they bring attention to Yar's meaningless death was a pretty bold statement about the earlier writing staff. I'm surprised they got away with that.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I honestly had no issues with the way Tasha died. It was realistic. She died in the line of duty on a routine mission. It happens. I much prefer my Trek that way instead of over the top bravado. Our lives aren't always punctuated by a triumphant gesture at our death. My wife's uncle died in his sleep...her father passed away in the passenger seat of a car from a heart attack while her Mom rushed him to the hospital. They weren't saving a bus load of helpless people, or freeing a society from slavery, they just lived until they didn't.
