Sometime in the next couple of centuries that usage becomes standard. Like every soft drink is a Coke and every tissue is a Kleenex, every star system is a Solar System.

It's actually somewhat plausible as a shortening of extrasolar system.

I would've thought that the opposite would be true. After all, there are so many Federation worlds, and "extrasolar" only makes sense to one of them. It would be like calling every other lifeform "extraterrestrial".

#StarTrekTNG season two Blu-ray will
include the intended extended version of
Measure of a Man. "It is unprecedented."
#STLV

I'm guessing this means in full HD (meaning they located the film), otherwise it would be neither intended nor unprecedented.

This is great but I hope the original version is there as well.

You can probably take that to the bank. It's really just what form the extended version will be in that's still somewhat unclear. I wish the tweet above was more definitive -- they'll certainly have enough room even if S2 is a 5-disc set.

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

I think it makes sense that "solar" system could be a "generic-ized" term no longer applying to just the system around the star called "Sol." I mean they still call the main star(s) a "sun" (an Earth-specific term/name for our star) and bodies orbiting planets a "moon" (the English word/term for Luna.) In fact there's plenty of time a lunar orbit is referred to and the soil on a planet is called "earth."

It's probably best to think of the bodies in our solar system to be the "base names" for objects. Main star(s)= a sun. The entire system = solar system. Objects orbiting planetary bodies = "moons."

Our planet and solar system is just the generic point language is based from. At least from a Human/English point of view.

At the Las Vegas convention, there was a panel with the Okudas and they mentioned the extended episode would be in HD as they found all the film elements.

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

While I realy am enjoying the Season 1 box set, I really think they need to up the ante on bonus features. The three part documentary is fantastic but I would have like to have maybe had a few select episodes with running commentary, or something similar to the Okuda pop-up trivia they used in the TOS set.

Hopefully with future sets they will invest a little more in bonus features, but I'm sure that largely depends on overall sales. Speaking of which, does anyone have any sales figures for week two of the release?

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

^ I agree, and from the sounds of it they will be doing more in terms of special features this time around. They've confirmed a longer cut of "Measure of a Man" for season two, plus commentaries with Ira Steven Bahr (probably for season 3, most likely for "Yesterday's Enterprise"), in addition to continuing the "Stardate Revisited" series of documentaries. It's probably safe to assume we'll get another blooper reel for season 2, but none after that, since I believe they were only made for the first 2 seasons by Bob Justman.

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

Sounds good! I do wish they would port over some of the extras from the old TNG sets, there were some good interviews and behind the scenes stuff. But overall I'm extremely happy with the set.

They are indeed. All the old extras are contained on disc 6.
