Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I guess the whole problem could've been avoided by using a CGI replica.

What model did they use for Generations? That looked awesome IIRC, especially the warp sequence which looked more seamless than the one used in the show (e.g. the intro).

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Whether it's inches or feet people, it seems the age old question has now indeed been answered... SIZE does matter!!!

ILM refurbished and used the 6 foot model for the physical shots of the Enterprise D, the 4 footer was even used at one point. John Knoll built a CG model that I believe was only used for when the ship went to warp.

Yes, I think the CG Enterprise was used for the two warp entry shots, but I didn't know the 4-footer was used. Do you know what shot?

I'm watching final mission, it figures "Alan Carter" guests on TNG, and his ship crashes..lol

The shot of the Enterprise and the freighter in orbit were pretty cool.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I wonder what the deal is with the "blurry" Enterprise shot. In the CBS-D episodes (BOBW and Redemption), they use that blurry shot. But in the Modern Video episodes, they use the CGI model.

Of the two, the CGI model looks better. The lighting is much better than its appearance in The Inner Light. I hope they go with that for seasons 5-7, because the blurry model shot doesn't look good.

Thanks! It looks good in that shot, dark and far enough away that all the "detail" is lost! It seems strange to use it for that one shot, surely ILM had a stage big enough to film the 6-footer for that. I wonder if they used it to justify the expense of refurbishing it.

Total of 3. A 6 footer, 4 footer, and 2 footer. Seasons 1 and 2 used the 6 and 2. Then the 4 footer was built and was used for the remaining seasons, with the exception of the 6 in BOBW.

Makes me wonder if they were just being cheap and reusing another shot from the show.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

1st: Epic fail on behalf on CBS, releasing the Blurays in Germany in the midst of September, when you can easily import it from GB via Amazon or eBay. WTF!?

2nd: I am just watching the Art Department Conversation extra, and they can pretty much put the same extra onto the DS9 Blurays, if they come one day, because they dont talk about TNG at all. They only talk all the time about DS9 and designing the station. WTF!?
