Okay, the effects of the trailer have started to wear off. I need something more to discuss at length. When do you guys think we'll get to see some screenshots, perhaps of enhanced visual effects or even better, some clips from the remastered episodes?
Probably before the end of the month/early November, since the sampler is coming out in December.

I'm not really expecting any more previews myself, but then what do I know.

Mid-January was the last I heard.

Yeah after the heady first few days of the announcement...you realize it's going to be 3-4 months before you can actually buy the darn thing.

Yes for you Flake it will be a significant upgrade to HD on Blu-ray. I'm only guessing you are not watching your VHS tapes on a HDTV at the moment?
I'm not saying VHS is obsolete as a recorded physical medium you can transport elsewhere but I am saying there is a huge difference going from VHS to 1080p HD Blu-ray. So much so you may be taken out of the story by the details seen in the resolution like this.

Can't wait for this. Hell, I'm even looking forward to the crappy episodes.

I just can't get over how ugly the deflector dish on the 4ft is.
It's not just the deflector, it's the entire ship. It's less curvy, less sexy than the 6 footer. Its only saving grace is that its the only model with accurate ten forward windows.

The 4-ft model is just very clunky looking with thick edges and just, oy. It reminds me of a larger Playmates toy or something.

I'll be surprised if it's that cheap, tbh
Amazon in Germany have listed it at €13.99, which is about £12. I expect that it will be identical to the UK version, but Amazon UK haven't listed it yet.

http://www.amazon.de/Star-Trek-Gener...7758234&sr=8-1

£12 or maybe even £13.99 would be okay.
No Chance. I remember paying £13.99 for Volume 65 (Man of the People, Relics) of TNG on VHS back in the early 90's (Funny what sticks in your brain...) from WHSmiths.

I think you'll be right with £21.99. Probably more in HMV too.
Why don't you order it from Amazon Germany then? I live in Germany, and I often order things from Amazon UK when they are cheaper or better there.

I think we'll have a "full" trailer before the release of the set.

The only news I've heard is that the crew are looking at the mostly final 3 episodes at this point.

Might they recreate the opening titles soundtrack with a full orchestra? It has always sounded thin to me, coming from years of admiring The Motion Picture version.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

^ Agreed. I don't know if they'd go that far, but hope springs eternal I guess.

At first I thought, why don't they just use the original movie theme? But assuming there's legal issues which would keep them from doing so (i.e. negotiations with Jerry Goldsmith's estate or whoever), I think there might be editing/timing issues. Meaning: the TMP version may be a bit shorter or longer than the TNG version and so it would no longer sync up with the credits.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

I imagine there was an issue, or TMP recording would have been used in TNG from the start. I doubt whatever issue there was 25 years ago will magically disappear today. But I'd love to hear a brand new recording assuming they have the budget for it.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

The problem I see in that is that simply using the TMP version leaves that TOS into out in the cold, when the whole point of the rearrangement was to bridge the two.

I suspect we're stuck with the music we got, although it'll almost certainly be remastered, so hopefully won't sound quite so cheesy.

I brought this up already, I like the idea...it was a 90-100 piece orchestra vs a 40 piece for the TV show. I doubt it will be changed though.

Eh..no one said it was cheesy.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

Another reason could be that they'd already hired Jerry Goldsmith to do a theme, and when they didn't like what he came up with (can't blame them, it's horrible), they got him to rework the TMP theme?
