Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I never bought TNG on DVD, and I'm glad I didn't. I will be buying every season on bluray, no questions asked.

It's just a matter of being able to find this apparently "fringe interest" title in stores. (Not that I consider it fringe, but it seems the retailers who don't get adequate stock do.)

Is there going to be a standalone release like there was with 3 (BoBW) and 4 (Redemption)?

The shot of the Enterprise exploding still looks like a tiny little model instead of a starship exploding in space. Cause and Effect I'm guessing. I wish that were replaced with CG...and most of the ship shots so we can get some variety...
Those explosions were pretty lousy and cheap looking. And it's quite obvious that the model is being affected by gravity. Just screams for replacement/improvement.

Yes, but that would not be in the spirit of what this remastering project is all about.

The only update to TNG-R I'd find extremely cool to the show was if they reshot all the future scenes from All Good Things. That would be funny, and boldly going where no TV show has gone before.

I would think they'd go with "Unification."

At least they could save a lot of money for make up to make them look old.

Q would also appear old in the future scenes, to mock Picard's advanced age, of course.

Might be "fringe" but Best Buy and Target have displayed it prominently where I am. Walmart carries it late then buries it..

I'd like a new ship used for the Vulcan ships in Unification. I always hated that crappy "invasion" fleet.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I remember when "Unification" first aired in 1991, it was like a major Trek event. I saw it again for the first time in many years about three years ago on TV, and the one thought I had at the end of part two was... that was really a crappy episode. Evil Sela. The completely ridiculous Romulan "invasion plan." The padded first half with a musical number.

There were some good scenes. The scene with Picard and Sarek. The announcement of Sarek's death actually caught me off-guard. The scene with Spock and Data talking to each other. But other than that, it was pretty damn boring. Hardly the major earth-shattering event I'd thought it was back in the day.

It's only remembered as the TNG two parter which had Spock. I imagine that is the only reason most fans even like the episode, it certainly wasn't for the plot!

I still like the first half of the two-parter, but mostly because it's a bit of a romp...a chase episode...part two bogs down with some ill conceived plot contrivances.

It's another episode in the epic saga of "Worf tries to disable an underpowered enemy ship but ends up accidentally destroying it" though

Seems to be a Klingon tactical officer trait, actually; perhaps Kruge's unfortunate bridge victim from STIII was a distant relative...
