Interesting that a different effects house is handling season 2.

That review does let itself down somewhat with the dumb remark "I did notice a little grain and Iím surprised they didnít opt to remove it but itís not a big issue" but it's not a big issue.
That and the "Farpoint" screenshot isn't from the episode.
I thought I didn't recall that shot.

Very disappointed, I just picked up the UK edition and the DTS HD Master Audio 7.1 mix on EAF is wrong. The dialogue has been mixed into the centre and front right channels simultaneously throughout - extremely noticeable and distracting. The mix just sounds horrible. I have the sampler disc, and the mix is perfect on that. Just quickly checked The Naked Now, and the mix is correct on that episode also.

Could anyone with the US discs and a surround sound system corroborate this error also exists on their set? If not, I'll be returning mine and ordering from the States. I'd really appreciate a quick reply if anyone's willing.

I can check once I get off work. Should be home pretty close to 7 and will check it out as soon as I get in. I didn't notice anything wrong with my copy of the sampler though. Did you get it and can hear the same thing with it?

That's a bit concerning. Hopefully the quality won't fluctuate too much like it did with TOS-R.

Although I'm sure Okuda and Curry will do their best to keep things as consistent as possible.

Many thanks, Glassneedles - I'd really appreciate that, just let me know if you can clearly hear the dialogue from both the centre and front right channels. As Sho highlighted, I do have the sampler, and it's perfect. Unfortunately, I suspect the front right channel has been replaced with a duplicate of the centre (haven't had time to listen properly) - although how they could muck this up bearing in the mind the sampler is correct is beyond me.

I had the same thought, and just by watching the season 2 trailer there are noticeable differences between the 2 effects houses.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

Well, looking at the shots of the Enterprise in the trailer the original colour scheme is less pronouced than the first season shots. Its more of a greyscale as opposed to blue/green.

Small details like the main impulse engine is now red when it was changed it to orange, the deflector is a bronze in the before/after shot when it was changed to burgundy in season one.

Small changes, but by no means a complaint. The new fx of the drone interfacing with the console in Q Who is excellent for example.

Damn, thanks for checking though. This is just an unforgivable cock-up, doubly infuriating bearing in mind there are no errors on the antecedent release. If any fan with the US set could let me know if the same exists on that release I would again be most appreciative.
