Klingon Encounter

A thread in Trek Gaming made me think of this, how cool would it be for one of the future TNG Blu-ray releases to have the Klingon Encounter footage as a bonus? (Not just the space footage, but the on-screen material starring Frakes and Burton.) There's no money to be lost now that it is gone, so why not preserve it?

I never went to ST: The Experience, so I have to ask...who here got to go, and in your opinion would that stuff be worth preserving like this?

Maybe throw the old Klingon VHS board game footage on there too.

Re: Klingon Encounter

Totally agree. I think they are getting there with ideas like this (re: 'Reading Rainbow'), and I hope they continue with it. I can't see how the cost to include such footage would be very high, and there are fans who would really enjoy seeing it, whether they played the game or not. I played it growing up, so it would be a laugh now to see it again.

Here's the Riker/La Forge footage for anyone who hasn't seen it (I hadn't till today!):

Strange to see LeVar Burton with shaved hair and the VISOR. Also interesting that Vaughn Armstrong is playing a Klingon named Korath, who he also later played in Voyager's "Endgame".

The Klingon Encounter was a blast! I liked it so much I went twice on my visit to the Experience. I much preferred it over the Borg ride.

Re: Klingon Encounter

Thanks for posting that, Stew. I hadn't seen it either. And that same channel has the Borg 4D footage too.

Re: Klingon Encounter

I would love a re-release of the game footage as an extra on the blue ray, since I still have the game bord but no VHS player :-(
