    Watching "Time's Arrow" Part I. Great how clear all the San Francisco scenes are crystal clear now. They were always so fuzzy on TV showings and VHS. Maybe DVD too. One of my favourite time travel shows, because it's reminiscent of TOS and a shame they couldn't have picked it for a TV Movie edit. I'd have imported it, as I will eventually have to do with "Chain of Command".

    There again, I suppose I'd have quite liked that uninterrupted option for all the two-parters which weren't feature-length to begin with.

    That reminds me that the Cardassian transporter FX were used for that episode. That's something of a taste of DS9 in addition to the station and runabout we'll get with the TNG season six set.

    On the subject of glimpses of DS9 in HD, has everyone seen this yet ?

    That is probably the best thing I have ever seen in my life with my eyes.

    More on this, please?

    +1 for quality before speed.

    This is being done for posterity, and I believe it should be done right. This is not about short term gains, but the long term viability of TNG.

    To CB: Get it right guys, take the time you need. Then we can all enjoy the show we all collectively love with no regrets that it was rushed. :)

    Oh, and thanks, CBS. :)

    Any news on a US release date?

    The Chase is one of my favorites of the entire series, as well. I had been kind of nonchalant about Season 6, but reminding me that it includes The Chase has increased my interest a bit. Thanks.

    ^ Where did you see that? Amazon (the US version) has no entry for S6 yet.

    I'm inferring the date. Both the Blu-ray.com UK and Amazon UK pages for S6 currently list June 16th as the release date, so that means we will most likely get it a day later in the U.S. :)

    Seeing the missing registry number on the Galaxy-class ship makes me groan... the omission would be that much worse in HD!

    Trailer is apparently imminent, according to TrekCore:

    "Time to reinforce the servers in preparation for the debut of the #TNGS6 Blu-ray trailer... #Birthright #GoNiners"

    IIRC, during the Dominion war, there were many Galaxy-class ships that were literally rushed into battle at the last minute, possibly not even structurally complete. So it may not be a stretch to see that some of them don't even have registry numbers or names.

    Let me guess - they only upgraded the planets, and there are absolutely no new shots of the Enterprise, only recomposites of existing shots, including the through-the-neck-odd-star-angle shots. All of TNG BR is a wasted opportunity. Great to have upgraded color, and better sound, no doubt, but give the option for either original-recomposited effects and new effects with new angles and ships.

    This project is over 2 years old, and CBS-D's approach to the remaster is news to you? There would be a run on CBS if they did that. Plus creating two different versions of the show is throwing money away.

    You must love the Star Wars special editions.

    Have you seen the blu-rays? I'd take the original, physical model shots and special effects in TNG-HD over the (comparatively) video-game quality CG in TOS-R any day.

    Most of the original effects materials still exist so why waste time and money rendering out new CG? The artists at CBS-D make the model elements look better than anything they could produce in CG without a blockbuster budget.
