Well… we'd better start saving our pennies…

I am not paying one penny for this tiny difference:



In the case of TOS it made sense to remake the old effects and clear up the interference on the film. For TNG it does not as the costs are higher and the benefits are smaller.

After spending around £250 for the TNG DVDs I doubt I'll be getting them, be cool to see if it was much different, but I don't think I could ever justify it.

One thing I cannot stand in some of the old series is the grainy look. This is evident in the original releases of the Star Trek movies. When they rereleased the remastered versions I bought them all again simply because they looked much better and were easier on the eye, especially on the big screen TV…

The Next Level? Three episodes only? Even the Fan Collectives had more than that. I can't say I'm looking forward to this release.

Encounter at Farpoint? Really?

It wasn't that great the first time I saw it, 24 years ago.

Inner Light and Sins of the Father are good choices. Best of Both Worlds would have been a better choice than Farpoint.

I'm all for this. The BD season boxsets, at least.

I'd probably get the first two seasons at 'preorder' price just to try to make this worth CBS's while. Then seasons 3-4, which are the real deal for me, I'll probably hold back until they're on sale for half-off (what I've done with every TNG/DS9/TOS set I've bought in the past). I won't weep if seasons 5-7 never get finished because not enough people bought 3-4.

Two things excite me about this project:

First, they're doing it with BluRay at the forefront of their plans, and 'streaming' as an afterthought. That's the way it should be, and it's (frankly) a promising sign the longer it stays that way. Call me petty, but I really dislike all the doomsayer "Your BluRays are already obsolete, sucka" talk, and so soon after the BD/HD-DVD format wars at that. I don't want the 'streamers' to win just yet. Fight the future for as long as possible.

Second (and perhaps more important), they're recompositing the special effects instead of redoing them. This for me is a major plus, and it's refreshing to finally know that the way the show was filmed/edited still leaves this as an option. I expect new CG will still be necessary for optical effects (weapons fire, etc). But any 'full' CG shots would look as cheap here as they did for TOS-R, so I'd glad they don't have to go that route.

I've always disliked the sort of dull, soft-focus look of the TNG-verse series, and rather hoped that much of it was due to post-production processes of the time. I'm hopeful that rescanning the film to HD will sharpen those images somewhat, particularly the actors' faces. Whatever the results, should be interesting to see.

I might get it. I'm all for seeing the cheesiness of season 1 in HD!

At first I said, I wouldn't buy this set unless they do like TOS and include new special effects along with the old ones. Though seeing the comparison shoots now I am intrigued and may reconsider. Maybe it's my 20/20 vision but the difference in clarity is pretty big.
