Re: Michael Okuda: Buy TNG Blu-ray sets to get DS9 on Blu-ray!

I'll keep buying the TNG: Blu sets if the quality stays up at Season 1 levels. Season 2 dropped considerably with the shoddy work by HTV:Illuminate. Season 3 looks good, I'll buying it as soon as it comes out, but Season 2 will be a bargain bin purchase...or used from someone. I refuse to reward poor quality like that.

I got 1 and 2 w/o hesitation because I did not have those on DVD. The rest of the series I have and it will be catch as catch can in terms of pricing. I already shelled out too much money since TNG DVDs were crazily overpriced in the first place.

Why didn't Michael Okuda say "Buy TNG Blu-ray sets to get DS9 AND VOY on Blu-ray!"?

I don't think Okuda was as involved with Voyager as he was with DS9.

They have gone through and re-dited the episodes from scratch, replaced and effects that weren't possible in HD, and gave it a remastering that normally only companies like Criterion do, not to mention the special features like the cast reunion. That blows anything special they can do with the packaging like steelbooks out of the water, this isn't an upconvert or a DVD rip we're talking about.
If you note the first thing I said. I'm waiting for the complete set to come out. The complete set has a good chance of being chepaer overall than buying the individual sets. As I said doing something speical with the individual sets like steelbooks would no doubt have enticed me to buy the what is likely to be dearer overall individual sets. So they might have lost money.

Remember for the DVD releases they came in hard plastic shells.

Anyone else find it ironic as all heck that they market a show that preaches the evils of capitalism and how primitive money is... to make a lot of money?

I really, really hope this happens, but I still can't help but think it's a long shot. Yeah I know, nobody expected TNG in HD to ever happen either, but it was also a huge, mainstream hit and is still showing regularly in syndication and cable.

DS9, as awesome as it is, has been pretty much forgotten by all but the most diehard fans, and it doesn't show on TV hardly anywhere. And I can't imagine CBS would want to put in all that money just for blu-ray sales alone...
The money isn't in physical media like BD anymore the real money to be made is online streaming like Netflix and downloads off of itunes and the like. I think that CBS will go ahead and remaster DS9 and VOY just to say they have the whole catalog in HD if nothing else, remember the broadcast tapes that DS9 and VOY are on aren't getting any younger. Yeah it will cost a lot to remaster DS9 and VOY but it will also coast a lot to shut down and restart a restoration project vs. just continuing.

The important eps like 'Q Who' and 'Measure of a Man' were all done correctly the sloppy work in season 2 was bad and I'm glad HTV got booted from the rest of the seasons so this won't happen again. I still think S2 is worth a purchase but at a discount.

You must be talking about the R2 DVD release, I see they re-released the different series on DVD in thin paks I wish R1 would get those instead of the cheap cardboard fold out cases that fall apart after you open them once.

It would be amazing if a Sovereign or two were snuck into the DS9 fleets, and maybe Ambassadors and a few other classes too.

Re: Michael Okuda: Buy TNG Blu-ray sets to get DS9 on Blu-ray!

Considering the fairly lackluster first season of DS9, I think a smart move might be to release another "sampler" set first with some of the stronger episodes on it.

Just to create a bit more buzz and remind people of how good the show actually was.

^ I think the general consensus is that is was better than TNG's first two seasons.

I would agree. Plus Emissary is a very strong premiere. Way better than EaF, Caretaker or Broken Bow, IMO. And while DS9 had Move Along Home, TNG had Angel One.

The "Circle" trilogy to start off season 2 was really good too. Better than 90% of TNG season 2.

If they were to do a sampler, I think Emissary, The Visitor and Way of the Warrior would be a great way to kick-start interest.

DS9's first season is also only 19 episodes compared to TNG's 25, making it easier and cheaper to remaster DS9's first season.

I've also noticed the second half of DS9's first season is a lot stronger than the first half.
