I don't know if it's interest so much as excitement that is waning. At first we were all blown away that we were even getting TNG in HD, but now that the excitement has worn off and we are just patiently waiting for the sets to be released. At least that's how I feel.

Interest isn't waning. When everything is A-OK, what is there really to talk about? We are all used to the amazing upgrade, so now it's a matter of expectation rather than being surprised by the sampler and season 1.

Look at the five threads. Which has the most activity? It's season 2, because it was a trainwreck. I would consider it a bad sign if there was extra forum attention to the remaining seasons.

Isn't that pretty much life in general. If it sucks, we complain. If it's great, no big deal. It's amazing how things like that work out.

I'll be glad once season five is out, then my spending on TNG discs will be over.

Were it not for a great deal, I'd be in the same boat. I bought them in 2002 for $110 per season. Years later, some guy offered me $500 for the whole show ($200 more than my asking price), since I had all the Best Buy bonus discs, which he desperately wanted for some reason.

Now today, I'm buying back the show for less than what I sold the DVDs for.

I'm looking forward to Season 5 too. But I'm just curious, what makes Season 5 that much better than Season 6? I'm not trying to come across as defensive or argumentative, I'm genuinely curious. I've seen that a lot of people feel TNG fell off a cliff in Seasons 6 and 7, but I've always loved Season 6 and thought it was as good as Seasons 3 and 4 and a step up from Season 5 (which I think was a slight dip in quality from S3 and S4). Tapestry and Frame of Mind are both in my Top 5 TNG episodes and there are only a couple of episodes I'd consider 'weak'. Also, Chain of Command is awesome

There were one or two DVD-style bonus features on each disc - and that trend followed for DS9, Voyager, and Enterprise as well. Those 'exclusive' features were usually included in the main European versions of the season sets; they've also been included in the TNG and ENT Blu-ray sets so far.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I started collecting the bonus disks. I ended up getting most of the TNG ones (except the first few, which were re-issues of the interactive technical manual, and some other software), DS9 and the first few from VOY. They're pretty interesting, and pretty cool if you like the special features. I'm hoping for the BD release they'll incorporate them into the archived special features they're including. Do we know yet if it's happening or not?

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I think the biggest question of the series 5 Blu-Ray, if not the entire remastering project overall, is:

Where are the Phasers going to emerge from when the Enterprise fires on the Alien ship in Darmok?

CBS-D changed the mistake from pilot where the beam was shooting from the Enteprise Captain's Yacht, to the right place.

They should fix the mistake in Darmok.

God I actually hope not. To the best of my knowledge that ship shot (the close up when they fire) is the only time that ship shot is ever used. And actually visually, even though its absolutely wrong, its a beautiful shot.

I have no real objection to shows replacing stock footage, but I don't want to lose any original model shots.

Can someone confirm that the model shot is used in an other episode?

I think exactly the same as you do and can confirm that this beautiful shot of the Enterprise-D only appears in this one episode in this one shot. It would be a shame if it were to be replaced.

They could keep the shot but move the beam.
