Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Unfortunately, as this trailer shows, from a visual standpoint, the seasons are getting less and less interesting. The sets are overlit, the photography is unadventurous and the vivid colours from seasons 3 and 4 are slowly disappearing. To me, as of this point, the remastering of TNG has lost some of its interest and the wait for DS9 has begun.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Yeah, I kind of know what you mean. The Taylorisation begins in earnest, and it feels a little too cosy and comfortable. DS9 really did shake up Star Trek, because it was such a change from those bright, clean sets, and characters who won every week.

When did this become a DS9 thread? Last I checked it suppose to be about TNG.

I wonder if the lack of vivid colours in the trailer are because the color correction hasn't been fully finalised??

The trailer for season three was way too bright compared to what we actually got. Just look at the S3 trailer and compare it to the trailer for BOBW.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

It does seem like the interest in waning on these sets, but I'm still looking forward to them for two reasons. 1, it's TNG in HD on Blu Ray. That's awesome in itself, and 2, I still think these special features have been amazing. I'm learning so much about this series that I didn't know before and the time and detail that's been put into these features have been worth the price of the discs by themselves. I'm looking forward to hearing them talk about Gene's death, or Wesley leaving, or if they are going to get a round table discussion on the music of the series. Also, I like most of what Taylor did, and I hope she makes an appearance on these special features. Hell, even if there was just one on Chain of Command with her and Patrick Stewart, that would be great by itself because of how realistic the torture in in that episode and how that type of Torture is sorely lacking in TV these days.

I doubt it. Colour correction can only correct colours that are there, and the latter seasons of TNG had a dull colour palette compared to the earlier seasons. Sets were a lot brighter and yellows dominated. There are only a couple of episodes left that I'm curious to see in HD, for example Chain of Command.

Yeah thats true I suppose. I guess as mentioned earlier, the trailers for season 3 and 4 to a certain extent show colours that appear overly bright with poor contrast and no depth, possible that it may be the same for season 5. Guess time will tell.

Regarding colors. The trailer contains some footage which hasn't been color corrected. Trailers are often given their own special "look" by the designer, too. Don't put too much stock in the colors there - wait for official preview images.

Out of interest, who makes these trailers? Are they done in-house at CBS-D?
