Wait so to hear the Ronny Cox interview you have to buy the seperate Chain of Command Disc? That's disappointing.
Think of it this way. Were it not for the separate release, there would be no Ronny Cox interview.
But it would have been just part of the Season 6 set. I actually might get Chain of Command (Didn't get Unification) just because of the Ronny Cox interview now even though I hate paying extra for two episodes that are already included in the set.

Nope. CBS got a budget to do a separate release of Chain of Command, and that budget goes to the bonus features, which would include an interview with Ronny Cox. Without the separate release, the interview would not exist.

The interviews done included in the season sets are more broad, as they don't focus on individual episodes. Interviews for one-off actors would not fit into the narrative.

Redemption and Unification never got UK releases. Still as we has all the TVM in a DVD set, I suppose its possible they might box them together too.

If season six is Juneish does anyone have a guesstimate for season 7? Will it be before the end of the year?

Very likely yes.
Late November would be best guess.

^ Indeed, we'll have the final season before the end of the year !

And folks, the CoC disc is WELL worth picking up... Ronny Cox has some great tales about playing Jellico. Plus, if all works out, there's a bucket of deleted scenes from the two-parter.

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Ahaha, no extra Stewart-Ass to be seen this time around!

The difference in color is pretty shocking though, the command uniforms seem almost PURPLE in SD (for eps like CoC), seeing those restored to the true color is a joy.

The "true" color actually was a deep burgundy, almost purple. The brighter red that we see on-screen is due to the way the studio lights reflected off the fabric. I have a production-made uniform to verify this.

(This is similar to why the TOS command uniform appears gold, but is actually more of an avocado green)

I'm sure they took studio lighting into account when the designed the uniforms, much in the same way the E-D was painted with lots of blues so it would look correct under studio lighting.

I am actually considering picking up the COC disc. I didn't for Unification because I didn't really need it. I haven't even heard any of the commentaries on any of the episodes so that wasn't a selling point and the features seemed a little less than what we got with Redemption. COC looks to have upped the features with the Cox interview and it should be interesting to hear him talk about his role, and maybe even the aftermath of the role.

Oh, I completely agree with you. And I'm fairly confident that CBS would agree with you as well, given they actually encourage their licensees to "correct" the colors to depict what was seen on-screen, not what the actual costume looked like. (An example of this is the Red TNG Uniform Hoodie available from ThinkGeek). CBS-D has also fixed the inconsistent colors in previous episodes, as pointed out in the EAS observations for "Remember Me."

The intent of my post was to point out that CBS did not color-correct CoC to show "true color" of the uniforms as FrontierTrek stated, but they are showing a more consistant color as what's seen throughout the rest of the series.
