Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

For clarification, there should be snippets of the Ronny Cox interview included in the main S6 doc, but obviously not as much or as specific as you will find in the CoC doc

Any word if the incorrect shuttle exteriors are being corrected?
What was wrong with the shuttle exteriors?

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

They used stock footage of the shuttle model created for the first couple seasons of TNG, but shot on the sets created from the recycled shuttle from STV:TFF that was introduced in "Darmok" in season 5. This happens again at the end of "Ship in a Bottle." It may be worse in the latter instance since they show the exteriors of two different shuttles in the shuttle bay that are intended to be the same one.

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Thanks, guys. This is something I'm sure I noticed as a kid, but now all these years later I can't keep track of these details.

I get the reasoning, I just don't care for that excuse. I would have preferred to have it all in my season set, I shouldn't have to buy the same episodes just for the extras.
It's not really an "excuse," it's a fact of economics. The extras wouldn't be produced if it weren't for the separate release. They have neither the funds to produce the extra material nor the space in the set for another 30 minute feature.

So you wouldn't have the option of having both the complete season and the episode-specific features. If you'd rather them just cut out the separate release all together then you simply wouldn't have the extras that would come with it either.

You don't "have to buy the same episodes just for the extras." You're the consumer. You make the choice of what you buy or not. If you don't want to buy both, then don't buy both. It's as simple as that.
You're right, to rephrase it, I think it's unfortunate that one's only option to have both the features is to purchase the two sets. Whatever the reasoning behind it, I still think it's rather crummy that you can't get them in just one set. That's all I've been expressing.

The extra features either exist on a separate release, or they don't exist at all. There is no third option like you want.

That didn't seem to be the case with Season 1 or Season 2. It's not a special feature issue. It's a how much can CBS suck the money out of the consumer because this is an expensive project issue. Special features are just the carrot dangling in front of said consumer hoping he/she will bite.

Yes, it was the case, it fell into the "or they don't exist at all" category.

It's an issue of budget. CBS is not going to greenlight additional spend on interviews/documentaries above and beyond the norm if it's just going to be part of the season set. It raises the cost for them while resulting in no additional sales. That would be a dumb business decision.

This is the same reason certain episodes were split into two - for budgetary reasons. They get more money for a two-parter than a solo episode, and have the ability to put out a bigger and better product.

At least "Ship in a Bottle" could be explained by a holodeck malfunction.

^ 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.
Can't wait!

Just like there was with Elizabeth Dennehy for BOBW... her commentary on the stand-alone disc was worth the price of purchase on its own.

Of course by that logic had he been in a single part story they wouldn't have had the excuse for a bonus interview with him.

When you consider the cost spent on interviews, we rarely see a fraction of what is recorded, rather than edit it would be cheaper to just include uncut interviews, but they lack the professional result.

Was David Warner interviewed too?

It's more than that. The uncut interviews would be much longer so they would require more disc space, which wouldn't be economical either.
