Mine was in a security device, but thankfully there wasn't damage. My local target had 2 copies of S4 and 3 copies of Redemption. I came in about 5 minutes after they opened.
Same at my Target.

I came in 30 minutes after open.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I went to our local Target in Central Florida at 8 AM opening and was told they got zero copies of S4. They had 3 Redemption discs. After some back and forth, I agreed to drive to another store in another town that had a couple of copies. But I got them, and they're home safe and sound.

We watched "Family" today and it looked magnificent.

Target was already sold out at 9:30. I drove over to Best Buy, and they had one copy of each.

Season 4 rang up as 69.99, but they matched it to Amazon's price.

I really should just go Amazon from now on. Retailers just don't care unless it's an A++ title.... like GI Joe Retaliation.
I remember running into the same lack of availability problem when I got season 2 at Best Buy. (Managed to get S3 and 4 at Target with the promo deals)

Is this not the big deal we think it is? A major restoration and enhancement of a significant, popular work, on bluray for the first time - the lack of stores having it available to buy makes it seem like it isn't. I of course would beg to differ.

Buying physical media just ain't easy anymore.

I've noticed that some of the enterprise flybys at warp at little blurred ?? Anyone else noticed this ???
I watched BOBW2, Family and Brothers and the 4 foot flypast is blurry in both BOBW2 and Brothers. In fact the shot looks identical in both episodes. I'd wager that shot will look this way in all subsequent episodes as it is frequently used and was apparently problematic to remaster.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I went to Target 2 hours after it opened and they had 4 copies of season and 3 of Redemption. I was relieved. I was afraid they'd be out by then.

Here's that blurry 4 footer as seen in BOWB2, Brothers and a number of other season 4 episode. Thanks to Matt_Cardiff_UK for making this.

CBSD might've found a way to fix in time for season 5. This is however the same shot that they recreated in CGI at the start of The Inner Light on the sampler disc.

Apparently aligning all those passes can be tricky. Look at this shot from "The Wounded"

Did this happen to CBS in other seasons? They said they had a way of tracking all this stuff so it lined up.

It was CG in the other releases by CBS-D

I can't see anything wrong with these screencaps. I see motion blur, but beyond that nothing that bothers me.

The CGI version of this shot is used in Season 4 when the Enterprise is towing the garbage scow in Final Mission and when dropping out of warp in Data's Day.

Not at all, the version CBS D use in Seasons 1 & 3 is flawless. The bussard and deflector glows are spot on, also the deflector glow mutes the deflector dish colour, that really is such a great alteration.

Having marathon watched Season 4 its safe to say that some of the MV composite shots of the 6 foot model look noticeably weaker than CBS D's. Begs the question once more, why are they throwing time and resources into re assembling already completed stock shots? couldn't CBS just include them when they do the conform for each episode and save MV a job?
