Sorry to beat a dead horse here, but looking again at another "Timescape" VFX screencap I have to wonder: Are we looking at an incredibly small Romulan warbird or has the size of the Runabout shuttle increased because of some strange "exotic" phenomenon?

Looks like some guess work on the resizing of elements to perspective / scale.

Wow, what's wrong with the saucer section in that screencap? Is that just a bad capture with motion blur?

It's the damage that it suffers in the episode, I think.

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

So I get that the ship is supposed to be scorched on the saucer, yet in the very next establishing shot after the Warbird vanishes, the green burn marks are gone. That confused me as a kid. It's not like the shooting never happened, because one of the bridge consoles in the background stayed scorched after everything was 'restored'.

So the green burn marks are gone entirely in the remaster. It's for the best I guess, because it removes a continuity error which has bugged me for decades.

^^ 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.

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).
Was also in Syriana opposite George Clooney a few years back.
Oh was he? Got that in a (large) to watch pile, might have to move it up a bit.

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

The Chain of Command commentary was an excellent listen. You get to know Jonathan West, you get to know Ronny Cox, and the Okudas are always there to share relevant information, keep the topic lively and informative, and generally know every aspect of the production. It was also really cool to dive into the mind of Natalia Nogulich, and see where Nechayev came from. Definitely worth the price of admission.

I noticed that the S6 blu-ray set is apparently no longer available. Amazon.com says it would take 1-4 weeks for it to be delivered. Why is it in such short supply? Was there not enough demand to make more?

It's also $117. Who would want to buy that?

My local Best Buy and Target have a few copies still. They are $69.99 in the store.
Wal*Mart is selling them for $116.99 and they will not Price Match without a Flyer in hand.

All the "Niners" were too eager to get season 6, also in order to show the potential of DS9-BDs. I guess season 6 will be (at least) the second best sold season of TNG.

That'd be nice. If sales spike because of the DS9 angle, then hopefully CBS notices.

Our Best Buy doesn't have it. But at least it's still available on Amazon.ca.

Really not a fan of the soft focus photography they seemed to be in favour of for any of scene not set aboard the Enterprise. It's seemingly add a whole lot of noise which is considerably more noticeable in HD.

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Just watched deleted scenes for Rightful Heir. There are a bunch, and many moments are actually pretty good as far as story and performance.

I usually treat deleted scenes as a curiosity to be slogged through once or twice and then forgotten. I do like how TNG HD has the scenes bookended by the moments from the show preceding and following the scene, but it occurred to me the lost opportunity to simply include the scenes as a branching option on the blu-ray within the ep itself, resulting in something similar to the extended Measure of a Man

I feel this option would more fully utilize the capabilities of the blu-ray medium, and make it more likely that I'd watch the scenes more than once. Technically, I wouldn't expect them to do anything more with the scenes than they already have as far as visual and audio is concerned, but as it stands, I really don't see myself bothering to watch the isolated scenes again.

I'm sure some enterprising fan(s) will eventually do the edits themselves, but for the somewhat pricey cost of admission for these sets, it's too bad the scenes could not be optionally integrated into the episode at large.

Meanwhile... Birthright, Part I...

NEED DEEP SPACE NINE ON BLU-RAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I'm so looking forward to getting this the day after tomorrow when it will be released here in Germany

Meanwhile, someone over at cinefacts.de claimed that the deleted scene for Relics is provided in SD only, can anyone please disprove this?
