Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

We don't have a firm release date yet (it's assumed to be arriving in late 2013), but we do have a trailer and new cover art via TrekCore:

Unexpectedly early, but it looks great! I like the colour of the box, too.

I look forward to the inevitable SD-HD comparison article.

Can't believe we're already seeing promotion for Season 5. The trailer looked nice, and it will be great to finally get Inner Light in HD.

We've had that in HD since January 2012

Well, some people didn't get the Next Level set because they knew the real thing would eventually come.

It looks fantastic.

The CGI replacement bits of the E-D in particular are better than I could have ever imagined. There is a half-second shot in there of the Enterprise manoeuvring into the debris field from Unification. It is a fantastic shot, whoever did that needs an Emmy ASAP. Its CGI! and an improvement over the original model shot.

Looks good. So it appears that the flyby shot in BOBW II was indeed an alternate take as I originally thought... even though the window light pattern looks strangely different (though it was hard to tell with all that motion blur).

I guess the two primary changes to the CG model were adding detail to the phaser strips and to the hull to bring it more in line with the 4-footer. But no change to the deflector -- not even making the inner blue ring smaller. I wonder if this added detail was done with displacement maps or is it all real geometry that was added? A displacement map would have been far easier, of course.

The scenes in the caves from Unification still look grainy... Might be a work in progress though, the rest looks amazing...

The CGI Enterprise D is a really nice blend of the best features from both the 4 and the 6. Really nice work on matching the shot CBS-D.

I'm afraid that's just what 500 ASA speed film looked like under those lighting conditions back then. Not much CBS-D can do other than crush the blacks (losing detail in the shadows), digitally noise reduce it (losing detail all over the image) or leave it alone. If you look closely at the trailer (even with YouTube compression) you'll notice a fairly consistent amount of grain in the dark areas of every shot -- it's just that the cave scene is intentionally under lit with a lot of shadows, so it's more apparent.

That is an awesome shot! I wonder if we'll still see that guys face in the vase when Picard, Spock, and Data leave Sela's office.

Can't wait for this season!

I see. Thanks for the answer! In any case, commendable work!

Hmmm...I kinda hope, that like the Season 3 trailer, that some of the live action shots are completed. Some of the colour correction appears way off with overblown brightness and contrast...
