Re: Star Trek season 2 on Blu-ray [release date Sept. 22]

what's the deal with the season one set on amazon? They say they aren't selling it themselves, but the reason is a little nebulous.

That is weird. I wonder if it's something to do w/ the idiots in the Amazon discussions. They're complaining about either:
1) the lossless audio is at a lower volume than other BDs/DVDs - so turn it up a bit! It's not enough of a difference to cause distortion.
2) audio dropouts at branching points - it's been well documented that some BD players (Samsung & LG come to mind, because I have both and have heard the "skips") have a hard time w/ branching discs.

new 7.1 sound on extra episodes remastered vs. 5.1 sound on DVD

for your comparison:
"Star Trek: The Animated Series" DVD in 2006:
Presented in Dolby 5.1 it sounds quite good considering this is from a 33 year old mono soundtrack
http://trekmovie.com/2006/11/18/star...vd-set-review/


from the November 21, 2006 "Star Trek: The Animated Series" DVD review:
the original mono mix and a new 5.1 Dolby mix. It came across very thin and hollow. Going to the original mono track afforded a richer, truer sound. And if you think the 5.1 will offer some semblance of surround sound, you would be incorrect.
http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/st...atedseries.php


from the December 20, 2006 "Star Trek: The Animated Series" DVD review:
the DVD producers chose wisely when reworking the original mono for a 5.1 mix, creating a modest but effective recreation of the original sound field for today's expanded home theater landscape: dialogue is clear and clean in the center channel, while sound effects and score reverberate in the satellite channels.
http://dvd.ign.com/articles/751/751836p1.html

and the DS9 season 5 on DVD review:
The 5.1 mix does not disappoint. The majority of the track is front heavy, but there is a great sense of channel separation and increased dynamic range. Sound effects and dialogue are crystal clear, and the surrounds are put to good use for atmosphere and the occasional battle sequence. Not as dynamic as I would like (especially in the surrounds and LFE), but a great remix. The original 2.0 tracks are also included, but stick with the 5.1.

^^^ I couldn't find season 2 for pre-order at Wal-mart's website.

Do you know if it is up for pre-order?

I saw the TNG movie blu-rays for pre-order.......

"More Trouble, More Tribbles" Animated Series Episode HD review
The Animated Series, a transfer struck from the original master, looks great but has dirt and grain issues associated with cheaply produced cell animation. Still, the rotating light pattern of the nacelles and the bridge scenes have a dynamic the SD versions of the cartoon just don't. The detail is impressive,

Re: Star Trek season 2 on Blu-ray [release date Sept. 22]

OK, I got sucked in, at least for Season One.

I'll wait on the price just a bit for Season 2. The pre-order at Amazon isn't much better than what Walmart.com sold me the 1st season for.

Season 2 is my favourite season of TOS. Can't wait!!!!

Also the extras seem really juicy this time around (although I only recently got TOS S1 BR and haven't had a chance to view all the extras yet either).

Best Buy seems to have one of the better prices...$59.99. It's not on their website, but it was in their print ad.

And Amazon just dropped their price to that as well.

So the TAS episode is also in HD? Could this mean we'll get TAS on Blu-Ray soon?

And I believe Trials and Tribbleations is NOT in HD, though. Is that right?

Surround usage isn’t extensive for active effects, but there is a fairly nice spread of music and ambient sound to the rear.
http://www.thecinemalaser.com/brd_20...tos-s2-brd.htm


I never imagined to hear a ‘60s TV show in Surround Sound, period — so listening to Trek in 7.1 is a bit of a mind-blower. The new mix can literally engulf viewers, and the various sounds of the bridge come through with such fervor (even the minor sounds), that one can almost imagine themselves on the Enterprise.

Easter eggs (hidden features)

There are two on each of the seven discs, making for a total of 14 additional bonus extras.

Re: Star Trek season 2 on Blu-ray Trekweb

three [BD-Live] bonus features on the development of the new visual effects for "The Doomsday Machine" and "Journey to Babel", and a feature on the fascination of the alternate universe portrayed in "Mirror Mirror", each running two minutes apiece.
There are also interviews with the Okudas, Gerrold, David Rossi, and Niel Wray, as well as Gerrold's interviews filmed at Creation Entertainment's Las Vegas convention earlier this year.
