    The suggested retail price might be $30, but I doubt it will sell at that price in any stores. I'm looking forward to this, although I won't buy it, since I'm content to wait for the season sets.

    Reunion may be the pinnacle along with Redemption I, but they probably wouldn't have worked as a single Klingon story. You could take Sins of the Father a single episode if you were a non-fan. Either way both episodes are light years better than Encounter.

    Most DVD-Blurays that have 4 episodes sell in the $20-30 range when they come out (currently the best of collections are $14.98 retail). No doubt there will be discounts, but this is not just a re-release, its an entire reworking...a totally new edit since there are no film masters. They'll prob treat it like a new show so expect to pay extra.

    Just one thing...Encounter was nominated, but did not win Best Dramatic Hugo...that honor went to The Princess Bride...beating Robocop and Predator as well.

    I thought there was a first season win of some kind. Turns out it was a Peabody for "The Big Good-Bye".

    Sins Of The Father won an Emmy for best art direction and deservedly so. Visually it's a very interesing episode and the remastered Blu Ray edition should really bring out the details of the set design. We'll probably see some great new digital matte paintings of Qo'Nos.

    ^ This.

    Plus, it'll be very interesting to see what the remastering does with all those dark and murky scenes on Qo'Nos - as opposed to the clean and bright Enterprise-D interiors.

    Yay!

    Thread title needs altering, its not a rumour anymore.

    I wonder if they re-scan ILM Encounter at Farpoint SFX like they did for Generations?
