Re: The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season 1 Discussion Thread

A question for anyone who has emailed their info to the folks handling the disc replacement. After you emailed your info, did you receive a confirmation that your info had been received? Just curious if I should expect one.

No, I haven't gotten a confirmation yet either.

Don't see this mentioned. Per Homemediamagazine, Season one is the 4th best selling Blu - Ray of its release week.

They don't provide sales figures just percentage versus the top Selling release.

Thenumbers also reports this, 4th place.

The say 95,435 units sold for 5.725 million in sales.
Can we assume the figures are worldwide sales? The website doesn't specify. Based upon the number of units, I'd guess so. Also, I'm guessing the 5.725 million is USD. Where did you find this figure?

He got it from here:

And the figures are domestic, not worldwide.

Pretty solid sales figures... considering S1 is one of the least liked. I'd say they're well on their way to recouping that $9 million they put into it, even subtracting the cost of the disc replacement program (if every single consumer participated, it would cost them about $2 per disc, so about $572,610). But I doubt everyone is even aware of the problem.

Here's hoping they recognize that pricing the sets below $60 will make them more money in the long run.
You mentioned the $9 million they put into it and I remember that this number has been mentioned before but what I don't remember is, if this is the money they put into just the first season or into the whole project. Do you remember? Thanks!

Re: The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season 1 Discussion Thread

Just watched Arsenal of Freedom, and somehow I remember it being a lot cooler when I was a kid (what with the crew being hunted by killer drones and Geordi taking command of the Enterprise). But the episode doesn't really do a whole lot with the cool premise, and the fake-looking jungle set makes it awfully hard to buy anything that's going on.

I do still really like that creepy scene with Riker's friend Captain Rice though.

And jeez, just how many different Chief Engineers did the show go through in the first season anyway? I completely forgot about that snarky asshole Logan.

True, but I think it's safe to assume that the subsequent seasons will be a little cheaper do to some of the start-up costs, such as shipping the film, initially compositing of stock shots, creation of cg elements, etc.

No confirmation of receipt, just a followup later asking for specific information.

I sent that in, included a line asking for confirmation that my submission was complete, but got nothing back.

I think I'll call the number too. I don't want to make any assumptions.

Five or six CEs in the First Season of the top of my head, again, I assume the Enterprise was serving as a "training ship" for the new technologies and other Galaxy-class ships before LaForge took over as CE as was intended when recruited by Picard. (Which is why we often see Geordi involved in some engineering stuff.)

And Logan has nothing on Lieutenant Commander Leland T. Lynch.

Thanks. That's much higher for just the USA than I would have guessed.
