What would you remove from BOBW so you could get it into an hour? You can't just add 5-10 minutes of kewl explosions to a show and get it in the time restraints.

Not why I watch Trek, friend.

Besides the Enterprise didn't arrive to party until it was too late.

Re: So what would you want to see in a TNG-R?

I just rewatched 'Relics.' A lot of the Dyson Sphere stuff still looks great, but they reuse some standard angle shots of the Enterprise flying toward it/around it [i.e. they just cut and pasted one of the stock Enterprise shots onto the background]. They also reuse a shot of the Enterprise flying out of the Dyson Sphere.

They could also correct an oversight - they transport Geordi and Scotty off of the transport ship with its shields still up. This would be easy to correct, as they could show the shields being shut off prior to their being transported.

There's a horrible looking blue/green-screen effect when Scotty first walks into the Holodeck [and when he leaves] - again, very fixable now.

I think Phil Farrand mentioned this last one in his 'Nitpickers' book - given the size of the Sphere, I'm not sure you'd be able to see the actual curvature of the structure in one of the early shots.

I like it.

I always thought it would be cool to cut away to the Battle of Wolf 359 right after Data calls Riker to the bridge and show the battle as it unfolds, then cut back to Riker arriving on the bridge and speaking with Admiral Hanson.

"The battle does not go well Enterprise"

Indeed.

Re: So what would you want to see in a TNG-R?

What I'd like…

• Widescreen (impossible, I know)
• High definition (obviously)
• More/new model shots
• More "damage" to the models
• New effects shots (would have to be re-done, anyway)
• Season 1 & 2 having a full orchestra for the incidental music (to be in keeping with the other seasons)
• FOR GOODNESS SAKE, DON'T ADD ANYTHING ELSE!

My point about the music would be so easy to do. You just take any of the musical cues from later seasons and dub them over. They are all fairly interchangable (no disrespect to the composer intended). Hey presto: episodes that are far more exciting and dramatic!

As for widescreen, maybe it could be made semi-widescreen (14:9 ratio)? If they took the original full 35mm frame it was filmed in (1:1.37 aspect ratio), and sliced 5% off the top and 5% off the bottom, you would end up with 14:9.

I'm confused. You want the sonic wallpaper from the later seasons to replace the original music from the earlier seasons?

I'm with you. The electronic cues from the first two seasons were much more distinctive. Of course, there were many fine scores from season 3 before the composers were locked down to that lackluster stuff later on. However, why bland down the first two seasons with the later stuff?
