THIS is a fascinating summary of everything we learn on Enterprise's season 2 bluray extras. I'm happy with my DVDs, so this is the first I've heard of a lot of this.
A not-Braga producer (Berman?) upset Bakula during the pilot shoot when he told Bakula that Star Trek captains can’t bleed.
Say what? I'm remembering some fine bloody stripes on Kirk.

Maybe this is why Archer had to make up for such malarkey by getting beat up a lot?
Remember this is TNG-era Gene Roddenberry, not TOS Gene. TNG Gene's outlook changed quite a lot. Berman was always trying to stop and think about WWGD (What Would Gene Do) in the way he ran the franchise. He says so on one of the TNG Blu-ray documentaries and on Rod Rodenberry's doc TrekNation.

He had a bust of Gene in his office and he'd blindfold it as a symbol when he would give in and approve something he didn't think Gene would like.

I bet that blindfold was on a lot for Ira Steven Behr's meetings

Oh wow, did not know that. Thanks for that hilarious pic, NEEDS CAPTION! LOL.

So did Picard never bleed?

Yes he did. And apparently it hurt so good:

^Ah, but he was technically a mere cadet back then. Cadets bleed real good - just ask Peter Preston.

Re: a box of rotting garbage, "standalone episode sh*t" and more trivi

I cannot wrap my head around some of Roddenberry's edicts. No bleeding for Captains? OH they can DIE if their ship blows up, but blood only for the lowly ones? Who aren't totally unprotected by these ideas since they can also die when stuff blows up but they cannot lose both legs. Okay maybe the leg deal is about gore but what the heck is the bleeding captain deal about?

Braga says his favorite episode is 1.13, “Dear Doctor.” He also liked 1.16, “Shuttlepod One,” and 2.14, the AIDS allegory “Stigma.”
This explains everything.

Black says it was frustrating to the writing staff “that we never got to kill anybody.” He says people got killed in “The Right Stuff” and that’s how the sense of danger was conveyed.
I actually think that the lack of red-shirt deaths in the first 2 seasons was one of the best things ENT did, It made season 3 so much better and actually brought a sense of real loss to Star Trek which never really existed before due to how casual death was treated in the other shows.

Not sure if purchasing the Blu-ray version of Enterprise is worth it just to get the extras.

For those of you that have them, is the picture quality a marked improvement?
Anyone?

The reviews I've read have all noted that the picture quality is an improvement over the DVDs -- but not a massive improvement, especially when it comes to the visual effects.

The extras sound interesting, but they're certainly not worth the current price. I'll wait for them to go on massive sale in a few years.

I think I'm in the same boat. Especially since seasons 3 & 4 were filmed in HD.

Thanks.

Since this is early days for earth I bet a bunch of red shirt deaths would have jeopardized the program. They are supposed to be explorers and every death would be a shocking failure.

How many Enterprise personnel die during TOS?

That's inaccurate. If you mean shot with HD digital cameras, then it's only Season 4.

All other seasons were shot with 35mm film (which can have far more detail than HD) and scanned into 1080p, so they're also HD.

There's no way I'm buying all of Trek on blu-ray having just finished buying it all on dvd's 5 years ago.
