    Yup, now we get to feel that three-week delay. Not as bad as our UK friends though.

    1. The Chase-A no-brainer really. Fantastic in every respect. Seminal even.

    2. Tapestry-More than I thought we'd ever see about Picard's backstory. Nicely executed.

    3. Birthright PtI- One of the most ethereal episodes, with a great discovery for Data.

    4. Relics- One of the better reintroductions of a Trek actor from another series. Plus..Dyson sphere. It has to be good.

    5. Schisms- One of the few really suspenseful STNG stories.

    Lots of good ones though. Timescape is right up there. Frame of Mind. Chain of Command. Even Time's Arrow is one of the better second parts of STNG two-parters.

    My top five list (in no particular order):
    Chain of command
    Relics
    Chase
    Timescape
    Descent

    Honorable mentions:
    Suspicions
    Birthright part 1

    ahh so hard to select just 5. I think S6 is really a good season.

    Deep Space Nine looks absolutely beautiful in HD. I think the long wait in between seasons has helped me gain a deeper appreciation for this project because my anticipation just went back up to season 1 levels. Can't wait until I get this and Chain of Command.

    The wait has definitely made me anxious to revisit this season in HD. That screencap comparison with Scotty on the original Enterprise is another great example of how vibrant the show can look when taken out of the realm of SD video.

    Any chance there's a trailer for the seventh season on the set or will we wait later like for S6's?

    Nope, the S7 trailer hasn't been done yet. CBS-D are just wrapping up S7 now.

    Thanks for the review. I'd say I can't wait but since I've barely started S2 that wouldn't really be true. Not for lack of wanting to though. There just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything I want done!

    Did you mean "...wrapping up S6 now."?

    I'd sure hope not, since S6 is supposed to hit the streets in 2 weeks. S6 should have been wrapped up months ago, pressed to disc, packaged, and is likely now in the process of being shipped to retailers.

    S7 would need to be wrapped relatively soon, for the same to happen and be released by the end of the year.

    Correct. S6 was finished ages ago. S7 will be done in a matter of weeks.

    ...and many good people at CBS-D will lose their jobs if the remastering of DS9 is not commissioned by then, I guess. That sucks!

    The time is perfect for CBS to move now. If they waste this golden opportunity to plug DS9-HD when interest is at an all-time high, they'll miss that window.

    Why bother showing off the Birthright footage at all if nothing is being planned? I think we'll be hearing something very soon.

    Who's to say it hasn't already been worked out, and will be underway shortly but they're keeping quiet?

    Sorry jimbotron, I feel obliged to set you straight. There are NO plans to start DS9 any time soon.

    Thanks for clarifying. You wrote your answer to explain why the S7 trailer isn't ready. If S7 is nearly finished, I would think they could produce a trailer now, but I guess I'm wrong.

    I'm guessing it's a matter of they didn't rather than they couldn't.
