Do they throw the fans a bone though. They only load up disc 1 with the trailers. Discs 2-6 (same with the other seasons) go straight to the menus.

Having to skip promos for Star Trek '09 and TOS Season 1 before every movie gets old really fast.

What I love about the TNG-BDs is that you can skip just EVERY trailer easily with the "next chapter"-button.
That even works with the main menu, one can skip even the animation of the planet flying by!
That's so outstanding and very user-friendly mastering, i love it!

There's also no BD-Java, meaning you can easily stop and resume episodes without having to start from the beginning.

Dagnabit, my local Best Buy was sold out of season 4 by the time I got there after work. Looks like I'll be Amazon-ing it. Oh well, at least I save $10 this way!
If your Best Buy had it in stock, you didn't have to pay $10 more.

Just show them the price on Amazon - bring it up on your phone, if you can. Or show them the price at Target, on their website or take an ad with you. They'll price match. It's that easy.

Although if "Best" Buy lived up to its name, one would not have to do that, as they wouldn't have been beaten so badly on this deal ($10 less for season 4, plus $10 off for buying the season and Redemption together at Target).

Look at the windows. The lights of the windows are misaligned.
Can't say this would bother me at all. Besides, you're looking at a ship at "warp," ya know.

Plus, it's not as though CBS-D were perfect either. There is an alignment issue in The Defector too. (Albeit less obvious than this one.)

Yeah, I'm sure travelling faster than the speed of light is bound to do some crazy things from the perspective of the observer...

CBS-D did the Conform, the live action footage, and the audio mix, I believe.

Modern VideoFilm did the remastering of the effects, under CBS-D supervision, including CGI elements and compositing.

Max Gabl from CBD-D did the planets (I think), so they should match Seasons 1 and 3 standards.

Seasons 5 thru 7 are being done entirely by CBS Digital.

I don't mind the trailers so much, that's what the "Skip" button is for, but I think they are kind of unnecessary.

Those who are getting these season sets likely already know about the other Blu-Ray releases, so they are basically preaching to the choir.

Is it me or does the transporter effect seem REALLY dull?

The CGI shot of the Enterprise coming out of warp originally seen in The Inner Light appears again in Data's Day.

It's much better lit (darker) though. It doesn't stand out as much as before.

I noticed its inconsistency also, sometimes the effect looks low res and lacks contrast while other times its pretty close to how CBS D do it.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I watched "Family" yesterday. And while the remastered FX on this project are what most people seem notice (and rightfully so), for me it's really location heavy episodes like this that show off how worthwhile this whole project is. The whole winyard scenery just looks beautiful now. On TV and DVD all of that looked always really murky and washed out. I'm really happy CBS took on this project and made it possible to see the often times impressive cinematography and great set design on this show come alive for the first time in 25 years! That in my book easily makes up for some messed up lighting passes and stuff like that.
