Mine was Brent taking a header into the console/desk after Burton's crummy line reading.

I like Dorn breaking into a string of curses when he flubs a line.

The Season 1 gag reel is actually since years on YT. It's an old videotape that was leaked years ago.
I wish they'd taken the time to go through the footage and make an HD gag reel, like they did with season 2. Ah well. Bring on season 3!

My favorite bit was Jonathan Frakes trying to get out of his chair in Ten Forward. The way he falls looks like the whole ground just gave way underneath him. I've fallen off of many chairs in my life, but none were as awesome as his fall.
Seems like he got his leg caught in the stool, the way he went down.

"Engage! No wait, don't engage....what is it?"

*all cast members present*

"ENERGISE!!! "

That's classic. This is what we've missed all these years, up yours Berman, what's wrong with showing the cast having fun and having a damn good laugh along the way!

(Though you can tell it must've been hard work for the editors, the directors at the time didn't seem too keen on keeping the cameras rolling if something funny (but unrelated) was happening....

That's pretty common. Film is expensive.

Blooper reels were traditionally made for the exclusive entertainment of a show's cast and crew, at annual Christmas and season wrap parties.

Shows like "TV Bloopers & Practical Jokes" pay huge royalties for permission to use blooper footage, but the TOS bloopers were taken to SF conventions in the early 70s and were illegally copied, escaping into the public domain. When the first season TNG bloopers did likewise, twenty years later, the cast of TNG pulled rank and vetoed blooper screenings at conventions unless appropriate royalties were to be paid.

There was no budget for the legal work required to get blooper releases done properly. Not Rick Berman's fault at all, IIRC.

Actually, I think what Dick is referring to is the long-held belief that Berman was the one who nixed future gag reels due to personal preference. No idea if that is true or not, but I have heard it 'round the traps.

Of course, that doesn't explain the gag reels that we've seen for DS9, VOY, and ENT. Brief as the former two are, they do exist. And the ENT ones are on the official DVDs, so clearly they didn't have a problem with releasing them by that point.

I really liked the end of it with Gene, Stewart and Dorn singing together. It was just cool seeing Gene like that.
That part kind of shocked me. It was like seeing a side of Gene for one time only and we won't ever see it again.

Gag reels are always problematic. While the audience loves them, some actors, directors and producers hate them, as it has nothing to do with the finished product and shows the actors and crew outside their roles, often times in pretty embarrassing moments.
