Has the main shuttlebay ever been done in any form of concept designs or any form of graphic at all, apart from what we see on both sets of the Ent-D blueprints.
There was that partial miniature we saw at the end of "Cause and Effect," otherwise no.

Given the amount of natural light pouring into the room when Data and Troi are searching for Spot at the end of Generations, I wonder if they were trying to substitute that set for the main shuttlebay? (even though the establishing shot of the 12' saucer shows the door closed)

I guess it is possible, they may have also been in a cargobay, but there's no cargobay hatches... anywhere on the ship. So...



Maybe they just opened the door to the shuttlebay between the establishing shot and the shot inside. The door opens really fast!

The inside of Shuttlebay One is seen briefly in "The Best of Both Worlds Part 2", though it looks a lot like Shuttlebays 2 and 3.

Re: So what would you want to see in a TNG-R?

It's inevitable and sure to happen.

I am not sure about that but it's possible.

So what would you like to see?
The CGI Ent-D as seen in "These are the Voyages", better sound and video quality, the battle at Wolf 359.

I'd like to see all those scenes of the ENT-D flying alongside a generic Excelsior replaced with various other Starfleet vessels more consistent with the TNG era.
As nice as it'd be to see an Ambassador or a better version of some of those horrible kitbashes, I doubt they'd change the "established" classes of some of those ships of the week (assuming they treat TNG with the same care that they did with TOS.)
At least have more flybys with the "Generations" Excelsior types.

Re: So what would you want to see in a TNG-R?

I could probably write a lot on this, but for now, I'll go with the following:

- planet shots from orbit (the early seasons especially). They really could do a lot with this in making each planet unique (moons, size, etc.) They also could match it up properly (i.e. where the Enterprise revisited a planet and the planet actually looking the same [not only within TNG, but also to TOS - for example, Vulcan]).

- reused shots [as several others have already pointed out]: primarily, the simple shots of the Enterprise flying through space during a captain's log, etc. Use different angles and put more and varied space "stuff" in there [like the title sequence of Voyager]. Also, it would be cool to see the different classes of ships, so unless it's actually spelled out somewhere in an episode, make some of the ships different (kind of got boring seeing the Excelsior again and again).

- space battles. 'Yesterday's Enterprise' is kinda slow-looking now, I think. They really could jazz it up (and all the others) big time. Also, some of the torpodeo shots look quite bad now (again, especially in early episodes). Also, again, angles are important - they reused the same shots for the ship firing, so they could sort that.

- those effects shots were actors get zapped or shot with something. Some of that looks quite bad now.

- in terms of a specific episode, 'Aquiel' comes to mind. The 'shape-shifter' looks really dated - I'd love to see an upgrade on that.

I'm tempted to start rewatching a few episodes now so I can suggest some more upgrades!

Can't look worse than the shape-shifter in "The Dauphin."



As for the space-battles I disagree there. TNG was never about space battles, that was more DS9's MO. The Enteprise is an emmense ship and shouldn't be potrayed as a fast-movinb barrel-rolling fighter a lumbering capital ship is precisely what it should be.

The colony creature in Aquiel looks fine....!

But the Dauphin shapeshifter..ugh...horrible.

I also think the BEST use of CGI in all of ST might be to re-do the Evil creature from Skin of Evil....that would be so much better!

Re: So what would you want to see in a TNG-R?

replace those horrible green computer screens in the early episodes with new screens. Just clean up a lot of the shots, like in where no one has gone before, make some of the shots look less 80's, more variety in the ships the E-D meets with like someone else has said. lots more, but I don't have time to post em all, cause I gotta get up early for work. Take care all

Re: So what would you want to see in a TNG-R?

Different shots of the Ent-D rather than the usual ones. A few more "beauty" shots as it were when they're cruising in space. It would also be nice in a few more shots to actually see what they are shooting at.

Upgrade the detail level on the Romulan Warbirds and Borg cubes. Clean up the computer interface closeups. Some of the battles, like in "Yesterday's Enterprise" need to be beefed up a bit too, including the Klingon ships.

Green screen? How do the shots in WNOHGB look specifically 80s???? You picked one of the more flawless episodes of STNG FX to nitpick.

No doubt the effects in WNHGB were nearly flawless.

TNG-R?? How about more tongue?

Seriously now, I probably wasn't the first person who thought you were talking about an "R" rated TNG.

Maybe some time in the future when 3-D effects can be added would be a good time to think about this.
