Nah, that was out of the (I think) rear tractor emitter.

The Italian release of season 6 will be apparently in September.

Looks like you are right. Here we see the stern tractor emitter in "The Battle".

In "The Next Phase" the energy transfer beam appears to emmanate from the same location.

The obvious conclusion: the tractor beam emitter can also emit energy transfer beams.

The forward "tractor beam emitter" is located in the vicinity of the main navigational deflector as seen in "Déja Q".

It stands to reason that it can also emit energy transfer beams. That's what the dialogue in "Timescape" states (remarkable continuity here, IMHO), but the VFX show a completely different location, unfortunately.

I think that the original VFX team screwed up the first shot of the scene, but rather than to "fix" it in the later scene they decided to leave it as it is, hoping that nobody would care too much.

I also believe that this screencap makes it blatantly obvious, that any emitter on the dorsal's port side couldn't possibly generate a straight beam to connect to the Romulan warbird.

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Man I love Birthright part II. Has to be my favorite Worf episode even with all the yoga. That spear through the hoop game looks really easy.

The only thing I don't like about part I is the doctor guy from DS9 who was irrelevant since I haven't seen that show and have no idea who he is.

^^ Dr. Bashir, I presume. Well, I'd think it's fair to mention that unlike several other Star Trek actors he made quite a respectable career in Hollywood after DS9, starring in several major films.

Just finished Aquiel and Face of the Enemy. Some nice FX in these episodes. Always liked Face of the Enemy.

In Aquiel, I noticed some of the scenes where the Enterprise and the comm station where in view together, the Enterprise seemed blurry or distorted. Was that a CGI ship?

At the end of Ship in a Bottle, I noticed the shuttle that Moriarty and his lady walk into doesn't match the shuttle we see leaving the bay. Then, once they're in space, it goes back to the shuttle they had walked into.

If I can get it for around £25, I can certainly wait a few months.

Bit cynical on the part of Paramount though, given how cheap the Italian sets are compared to everywhere else. Why flood the world with half price legit copies when you can sell the English packaging at double the price for 3 months?

Yeah, it's always been like that. They used stock footage from season 1 or 2. I have always hated that ugly shuttle.

I always preferred the shuttle from the first four seasons. The modified TFF shuttle never looked like it belonged with the Enterprise-D.

Yeah he was in "Kingdom of Heaven" as well heheheh... still he was good in that.

Also he showed up in 24, and an episode of Spooks (MI5 for you colonials).

I also liked him in "Vertical Limit", but I think he did really great in "Kingdom of Heaven"

Oh no! There were some requests already back then to fix this awful flat moving wall claiming to be Probert's Type 7 shuttlecraft for TNG-R's "Unnatural Selection" (Season Two) and now this shot was just recycled?

Or is it another artistic accomplishment, suggesting a new shuttlecraft never illustrated, sketched or put together before in treknological literature? (as a hybrid of the Type 6 and Type 7 shuttlecraft - Type 6.5? - it should make an interesting candidate in the fan art section)

I don't understand getting bitter and worked up about a shuttlecraft.

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Regarding the big error in "Ship in a Bottle", I think it's just a simple matter of calling it a holodeck malfunction.

Male fans will definitely enjoy Man of the People. Almost nothing is left to the imagination.
I've been waiting till I actually see this episode again to comment, so now that I have, can you explain the whole Male fan part? I don't find Marina Sirtis that attractive, and like I said, this was the episode that started the bad hair season for Troi. The only time I thought Sirtis was attractive was in First Contact (A Drunk Troi is a great Troi ) and Voyager.
