Holly shit! Anyone notice how much more you can see going on in the Observation Lounge at the end of the opening credits?! It used to be vague shadows moving around in there but now it's like looking into the actual room!

It's interesting the things you can now see with the higher resolution. Watch as Data sits down at OPS on the battle bridge when Riker begins the manual redocking. You can see a hand print on the station obviously a transfer of the oil/makeup from Spiner during a previous take.

Wow, you guys are really burning through these. I'm only planning on watching one episode per night myself.

It's only four episodes, about three hours of material.

I don't think I could contain myself watching "one a night." Hell, it's going to be agony waiting for the first season and then getting to then even better seasons after that.

I love how you can all of a sudden see the tiny details. The fruit basket Zorn offers to Riker, for example. On DVD, I could only clearly make out the bananas. Now you can see tomatoes, grapes and an orange as well.

Or the data file about Kahlest in "Sins of the father". Here's what we got to see on DVD:



and here on Blu-ray:



(This is not a screencap, I photographed my TV for that shot...)

We, at Memory Alpha, will have lots of work, once the Blu-rays are released... :-)

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG Next Level Bluray watch and review thread

OK got home and mine isn't delivered yet. Amazon can suck it I told my doorman to ring me if there are any late deliveries. Do I get it for free if it doesn't come on the day-of-release and I paid for that?!

I just watched The Inner Light, and that opening shot did not look nice to me. Sure, its vaguely close, but the flight path is wrong (well, wrong is relative, its more to the right than it was) and it looks really CG at the end of it. They've also done away with the the Katan glow when the sun is slowly going nova. Overall the rest of the episode looks great, and in comparison to Sins of the Father the stuff on the bridge looks really vibrant and has deep blacks. SOTF seemed a tad washed out I felt.
I'm not sure you are correct. The ship always kept fairly to the right in that shot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPD4J3Mhy3Y
I dunno, I can't go back and rewatch them at the moment, but I feel like it was even further than that. At least, I don't believe the saucer filled 3/4 of the shot when it passed overhead.

You can always try complaining. I got a refund on postage after I complained about late delivery, though it arrived 2 days after it was supposed to.

Ah, LCARS' Google, you will present us with much joy.

Well I remember there were always a few different versions of that shot. Some where the Enterprise came a lot closer to the camera than others, or they used a different model...

You haven't decided whether or not to buy TNG on Blu-ray, yet? Maby this will convince you:
Check out this DVD (DVD, not Blu-ray!) screenshot. Not only is the text about Kahlest legible now (red box) but also the text in the LCARS "buttons" (green boxes). Talk about quality upgrade! :-)

Hell, just seeing the details on the Enterprise model is awesome enough!

Anyone notice the digital "remaster" to up-scaled video switch in "Sins"? I can't say I noticed it?

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG Next Level Bluray watch and review thread

^I did, but thats only because I knew where it was. The only thing that really puts it down is a muted look and Beverly's hair is fuzzier than in the next shot. Apart from that its OK and doesn't really ruin the show.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG Next Level Bluray watch and review thread

Well I am screwed today, good thing i didn't invite my industry friends over. Amazon used Smart Post to deliver it, which means it was delivered to my POST OFFICE today, but not to ME today. Very frustrating. They have refunded my money so at least I get if for free, but I would rather be watching TNG-R right now!
