    Please put it in the movie theater! I nominate either Emissary (as the movie) or Duet and In the Hands of the Prophets!

    Would I mind? No.

    Would this actually ever happen? Not in a million years.

    You know that's a hard one..... Emissary makes a perfect two parter... but it can't be season 1 without Duet.

    Now that's amazing. If an amateur can cobble that together in a few hours of free time then surely CBS-D can do it? All that talk about how CGI battles are far too expensive and far too complicated and far too time consuming is just total rubbish.

    I get the impression it's not just some amateur.

    It's Dave Clark, one of those SOTL guys.

    But did he actually re-render the original scene file or did he recreate it? Because he says that none of the assets belong to him, but I know he built an Enterprise-D model.

    I wasn't trying to be disrespecful to the artist who made that clip. My point is if someone can create something like that by themselves without commercial backing it can't be all that hard for a large company that specialises in that sort of thing. The story so far has always been that remastering a show like DS9 or VOY would be prohibitively difficult with regard to complex CGI such as space battles. If one guy can do it in his spare time without pay or help (beyond borrowing a few models) then surely CBS-D can do it too?

    Whoa ... that looks awesome! And very close to what was in the actual episode, if I remember correctly. I'd love to see more of this!

    That's very nice. I did a search for it and it doesn't look like it's out yet. Do you know when it's coming?

    What, DS9 on Blu-ray? No one knows yet, except some high-ups at CBS. :)

    Yeah. The point isn't how well that particular shot looks, the point is just that there is a lot more detail to the FX the producers of an HD DS9 have to work with than was known before. That's a good thing in and of itself.

    I dunno, the brighter lighting and what not just makes it seem kinda... cartoonish.. to me.

    What? While watching the clip I thought CBS might never put that much effort into their remastering.... and they probably won't.

    I agree. I would be surprised if we ended up with fx looking this good. Of course it still looks like CGI but that is inevitable. Even with a movie budget that slightly unreal effect is there.
