Re: Season ONE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Well, I finally watched the one TNG episode I have never seen, Skin of Evil. Not bad, but not great. One thing that struck me while watching the episode is the potential friendship that could have developed between Worf and Yar had she stayed. They had a nice scene together on the Bridge.

Ironically, Denise Crosby is quoted saying that if there had been more scenes like that Worf/Yar bit, she might have stayed!

I feel the same way about Enterprise's 4th season. If there had been more of those stories early on (birth of the Federation, augments, mirror universe), the show probably would not have lost the fanbase.

Re: Season ONE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I've only been a Trek fan for a few weeks. So far I've seen the first 10 episodes of TOS and the two Abrams movies. TOS has superior and more thought provoking storylines than the movies, but even on blu-ray it feels extremely dated. I want to continue watching the series, but will now be watching TNG at the same time. S1 is on the way and should arrive tomorrow. Hopefully the set will have fixed audio.

Yeah I can appreciate TOS but it's always been dated to me especially as I got into Trek with the movies in the 80's. TNG doesn't really get good until season 3 but there's still some enjoyable episodes in the first 2 seasons. The blu-ray remastering of season 1 is excellent though and almost makes it look like a new show again, sadly the effects of season 2 didn't get the same care and attention.

The corrected version has the Starfleet symbol on spine.

If you are ordering new from Amazon, they definitely have the fixed versions at this point.

Here's a quick comparison shot of the faulty and corrected sets so you can check.

The UK blu-ray seems to have a black and white barcode on both versions.
Ah, so he is UK? I guess I'll delete that part of the post.

^^ The UK sets do have the starfleet insignia on the spine if they've been fixed though.

Ooof. Those UK discs are pretty hideous with all the rating information on it. And here I thought having the bilingual version of Season 1 from Canada was bad.

I just learned from you that such bilingual version for Canada exists. I thought that basically all worldwide editions were the same (in audio tracks and subtitles). It has only an English and a French audio track, right? Is the French one Quebec or France French? Where could I see/hear a sample?

When exactly are you gonna stop and admire the discs? They're either in the case or in your player. As long as they're round, I don't care what they look like.

I admire the nice blue discs every time I take them out. I don't really care that much either, but given the choice I would take the blue ones over the ones from the UK.

So, it looks like in Australia, S1 has been recalled and has a new release date of September 5th:

Looks like this will hopefully be resolved in a few weeks.
Oh thank god!

I just bought season one here in Australia yesterday. I had heard much about the apparent audio problems and was scared. So far, I haven't seen any issues. Watched several episodes already. I guess JB Hi Fi now have the corrected sets in stock.
