The notes have it that the episode starts in 4x3 then widen to 16x9 (approximate) in scene 33, which I find fairly unlikely.
That's the part that really made me laugh. Those boards were obviously concocted to play right into to the modern "controversy" about TNG in widescreen on Blu-ray. A TV show broadcasting letterbox widescreen in 1990 is definitely unlikely. It's about 7 years too early. It wasn't until widescreen TVs and DVDs were introduced that letterboxed broadcasts started to appear.

In fact, the short-lived CBS TV series "Feds" was the first show to be broadcast in letterbox 16:9:

Even though it smells, a book which consisted of entirely lost episodes from the TNG era would be a godsend. It would be amazing to see what got pushed into production and how far on that show... especially after watching and re-watching the same 178 episodes about a trillion times!

And... a trillion times more to come on Blu ray!

Well..there is a book that with treatments to lost episodes and movies. It´s mostly TOS...but there is also some TNG stuff in it. I don´t know if its still in print though. I don´t know the english title because I bought the german translation.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds all of this more than just a little fishy. As someone else said upthread, these sketches look nothing like the art we know from the real people working on the show. This seems to be a massive practical joke. I'm not laughing, though.

Yes, I own that book, too. The presentation is rather dull, but the stories themselves are great. And, this seems to be the original english version.
