The fifth stuck Bluray thread. Wow!
I was wondering if we were going to sticky these threads there might be some options to not have these hog the page:

1) A TNG Blu Ray subforum with just seven threads in it. Heck, all the blu-ray stuff can go there

2) Combining some of the already stickied threads, like Seasons 1 and 2, and then 3 and 4. Then instead of 5 we only have 3 threads on this, and also considering 1 and 2 have been out the longest, it might be worth combining them anyway.

Anyway, just some suggestions or we can leave it as is. I will say though the top of the forum is getting a little cluttered.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Haha, these trailers continue to get more and more tongue-in-cheek.

"....And even Wesley is back" *Beat* "Let's begin this with a show of good faith."

The 4-footer sure looks awesome when shot from above. The overhead shots from Unification and Conundrum, wooooow.

Interesting, there wasn't time for the season 4 trailer for the last Blu-ray set, and this time, the season 5 trailer is out a MONTH before the Blu-ray set.

Season 5 already, man it's almost over...

Any word yet if there are any missing film elements?

I guess since we haven't heard anything about BOBW2, that the missing footage is still missing.

They aren't hogging the page. There are only five topics right now about the blurays, the biggest news ever for TNG right now or in the future. They are certainly important enough to be sticked. Merging them turns the bluray threads into one confusing mess for those following just a single season.

Also this forum really doesn't have much activity at all, the first page has posts from as far back a week ago. It's not like it's pushing off any super interesting TNG topics or anything.

Sticking each season Bluray thread is fine, I say.

Why? Are we running perilously low on room to post another "X: Line by Line" thread or the lastest news on the series?

Also, if you combine all the threads, a good chunck of them won't make sense. A season 2 post will be between two season 1 posts and then a season 3 post will come in out of nowhere followed by a tweet from TNG Season 8. CHAOS.

I'm surprised they didn't do more to tweak the "Cause & Effect" explosion. It always stood out as a really cheap model effect.

Um, fine, forget what I said. If this forum doesn't have super interesting topics, why are we sticking the blu ray threads again. Personally, I've been favoriting them, and they've really helped bring this forum back to awesome status. I'm sure DS9 will be the same way if they ever see blu rays.

According to FrontierTrek season five is still in the works so they still might consider replacing or at least improving the shot. Wouldn't be the first time that material we saw in the trailer was changed.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Season Five is one of the weakest seasons of the show for me, really only a few a handful of episodes I really love. So, I'll be waiting for a discounted price instead of pre-ordering on this one.

That said...the video quality does look quite great in this trailer. There are some great shots, like that Unification one that someone posted in the thread. And, again, overall the quality looks so much greater in every shot. I watched a later-season DVD episode a few weeks ago, and I swear, it looked like the old VHS/DVD difference to me, especially the SFX shots.

Season five's certainly not a favourite season, but it does have a few of my favourite episodes, notably Darmok and Ensign Ro. I'll be getting it on release day for sure.

I actually thought about combining older threads but as another poster said below, it would become a confusing mess. A sub-forum kind of hides the topics from plain sight. My conclusion was that we all have scroll devices (wheel, slider, etc.) and can easily navigate the forum so let's just keep on stickin'. No harm done.

Yeah, it's definitely weaker than three, four and six. There are still some great episodes, but on the whole it felt like a step down. And Worf's hair was absolutely atrocious throughout.

I'll probably still pre-order it, because I'm a sucker.
