Chances are that uniform is a test version made by the costume department while coming up with the new uniforms, and it got reused for extra because hey, who's ever going to be able to see it in any detail? You'd need some kind of super high-definition TV and VHS tape to see that.
Yeah, from season four the old season 1-2 uniforms were adapted to look like the new ones, with collars added and the piping removed. This one must have been a half-way stage that was rushed on screen for an extra. You can always tell which redshirt is going to have plenty of lines, because they get a proper two-piece uniform!

Shelby looked like she wore the old one-piece with updated shoulders/collar.

Didn't the women always wear a one-piece even when they switched to the new material in season 3?

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Anyone else love Booby Trap? I've seen it a million times but it has wonderful character moments and the music is great, especially when they realize they're caught in the trap and it goes from a small power drain to being totally stuck.

One of the best comedic lines in the series that's often overlooked is the part where Picard talks about ships in bottles. Worf says he didn't play with toys. Data said he was never a boy. O'brien says he played with ships in bottles, and Riker gives him a look like he's sucking up to the captain. O'brien goes "I did. Ships in bottles....great fun"


Awesome sequence.

It's a CGI test done for the director's edition of ST:TMP.

The redone cgi enterprise that was under construction was pretty sweet, HOWEVER, HOW DID CBS-D NOT ADD THE MISSING PORT THRUSTER EFFECT!


Lots of awesome unique shots of the 6 footer in this one though.

Yes, I think women always wore one piece jumpsuits, even after they switched to the uniforms with the collars, and sans the band of rank colour around the shoulders.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I just watched Vengeance Factor and admittedly this isn't really an episode I go running back to watch on a regular basis. I think it's been at least 3 years since I've seen it, so maybe my memory is a big iffy on the DVD. When the episode started, I couldn't believe how green everything looked. When I say Green, I don't mean really blending in with the scene, but just outright Green. I think this goes with what I said about the Shiliak and how maybe Remastering can be done so well that it runs the risk of hurting the scene rather than enhancing the scene. Man that was a bright bright green.

The bit that always annoyed me in Vengeance Factor is where Riker incinerates her couldn't they just restrain her

Here's the DVD:

Looks about the same to me.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

^Maybe you're right. I just thought on the DVDs it was more toned down than on the Blu-Rays but I could be wrong. Still, interesting choice to have the first scene of the episode be very green.

Color correction on the TNG remastering is always done with respect to the original DP's intentions. There's a LOT of restoration work going on with color/contrast which isn't talked about!

My favorite part is the subtle look Picard gives when he stands up from the Conn station after guiding the Enterprise through the debris. All he needed was a microphone to drop.

The Captain is a bad ass because he only whips it out when he needs to. And he only whips out enough to win.
