I'm curious as to what these 13 seconds are - I wonder if it would be possible to let the viewer choose between the upconverted video and the video from another take (or even just another angle hiding the speaker, if any).
I'd be cool with an alternate take if it was just 13 seconds. It would probably still look better than an upconverted scene.

They should just refilm it! It'd be totally seamless!

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

Maybe someone somewhere walked off with the original film containing those 13 seconds - maybe the original film is out there in some TNG crew member or fan's hands.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

In a document sent to retailers today, CBS/Paramount included the following notice about 13 seconds
from
http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Sta...xt-Level/16190

It does sound like it is legitimate info in a package to retailers but of course CBS DVD and Paramount Home Entertainment know it will get picked up by Trek blogs and forums like this as any news about the upcoming January Blu-ray release.
I still think either the week after December 25 or at CES in early January we will get the next video trailer.

Wow, they are taking this very seriously. They surely could have reedited that with other footage, couldn't they?

That's not a big problem I guess - where did you get the info from, gaghyogi?

I got the info from here:

http://forum.blu-ray.com/blu-ray-mov...lu-ray-71.html

If you follow Rik1138's posts (like on this page) you can see that he has some insider knowledge. The scene depicted is exactly 13 seconds long.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

Really, is anyone going to notice? Seriously. I know there are folks out there who are really techno geeks who can tell you if the sound momentarily switches from Dolby XYZ to Dolby ABC for 3.4 seconds, or who'll lambaste a Blu-ray release if a bit of grit appears on one frame and wasn't caught in the remastering. But unless this really causes havoc with viewing (like, say, the sound glitches on the Season 2 DVD release of Bionic Woman that caused Universal to issue free replacement discs) or someone is so thunderstruck that they're being denied 13 seconds of Gate McFadden in proper HD, I don't see the problem. It's not even an SFX shot by the looks of things.

I'll be noticeable - everything'll go a bit out of focus for that scene (ever seen a 60-80s UK show, like Monty Python or Doctor Who, where they switch from video to badly-telecined film? Bit like that.) Not drastic, though, just annoying (might even be more annoying for being brief in some ways).

As has been said, the bigger worry isn't about 13 seconds of one episode - it's if something like a whole act ended up missing from another ep. Hopefully, it WILL just be the odd clip here & there, at most.

Hm. You'd think that they would've checked that before they announced it would be in the teaser pack.

It also begs the question: If they've already found that original film was missing from one of the first three episodes to get the treatment, how much more is missing?

It doesn't bode well, you know.

In this instance, its no biggie - but you have to wonder what might happen further down the line.

Maybe they knew and chose the episode because of it. See how the fans react to the 13 seconds and then use that as a gauge to determine how to proceed the next time the issue comes up.
