If they are that probably doesnt bode well for DS9-R. Unless they are planning for a longer gap between the release of TNG-R season 7 and season 1 of DS9-R?
Maybe CBS got fed up with all the complaints.

The important thing is that CBS-D will be doing "All Good Things".

Just saw the Redemption stills and video...incredible. I always thought it was an epic Shakespearean saga, but now it looks like a movie!

Maybe the reason CBS isn't promoting season 4 is that they feel all the promotion and advertising for the previous seasons was enough to make people aware that season 4 will be out soon. Or they have found advertising isn't increasing their sales sufficiently beyond what they would expect from the hardcore fans?
There really isn't any big standout episodes from that S4, really ("Family" is the closest one I could think of). With S3, CBS promoted the heck out of BOBW.

Season 4 is my favorite season, I think the problem is there are too MANY standouts, and they can use Redemption as their 2 hr movie screening if they wanted. From what I can tell, the BoBW event did very well, they'd be crazy to not keep it going.

That was my thinking as well. That holds true for the rest of the series until you get to "All Good Things" of course.

All the other 2-parters are either pretty so/so or require you to be a pretty involved fan to watch. BOBW is so widely known and so well liked it was sure thing for CBS and Fathom.

As much as I want DS9 on BD NOW, I would be happy to have a slower release schedule just for CBSD to do all of DS9 themselves.

Remember the powers-that-be at CBS wanted all seven seasons out in three years (2012, 2013, 2014). So that meant CBS-D needed a little help with at least a couple of seasons. CBS-D is about to prove that they can do two seasons a year (S3 and S5 will be done by them for release in 2013). It's that request for three seasons in 2013 that really seemed to make a need for some extra help.

So when you figure the remastering work on Season 4 is all but done now thanks to Modern Video's help, CBS-D has surely already moved on to Season 5, and then when that's done they have the luxury of doing only two more seasons throughout the entire year of 2014. So for example if the higher-ups allowed it, Season 6 could be mid-2014 (instead of early 2014) and Season 7 could be end of 2014 to give them lots of time.

They really need to cool it with the hyperbole in these trailers.

Redemption II is a pretty good episode, but it's not "earth-shattering".

Yes. Thankfully CBS Digital are now streamlined enough that they feel they can manage the final three seasons.

DS9 has not been green lit, so we really shouldn't make any assumptions.

Season 4 is already finished, it should be being pressed to disc any time now.

CBSD are indeed working through Season 5 now and it's looking damned incredible.

Release dates (and deadlines) are already set, so while CBSD would love to have until late 2014 for S7, that just isn't the reality!

This is really interesting. So have they simply become more efficient and streamlined as the project has progressed or have they upscaled the teams working on TNG-R? At any rate it's great news that CBSD will be able to do all of the remaining seasons!

Both. They've certainly become far more streamlined. The work is second nature to them now (although there are still massive challenges).

And for those asking - there will be no theatrical event for Season Four. Sorry, folks.
Do you know / are you able to tell us why?
I'll take that as a "no".

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Disappointed they left in the ugly Movie-era warp out of the sun in Redemption but overall the FX look amazing so I'll let them off
(They even tried to jazz up the boring, re-used explosion from Yesterday's Enterprise with a bit of weapon discharge too, helps it )

I'm about the only person in the world that loves the 4-foot model more than the 6ft (I came into TNG when 4FT was being used exclusively and to me the 6FT looks ungainly and far too bright) so this era is now prime time for great angles of the ship
