    Trekmovie.com is running a two part interview with the Okudas about the Blu-Rays.

    So, straight from the horse's mouth:

    If the painting already existed and was ready, maybe not?

    Part 2 of the Trekmovie.com interview with the Okudas.

    This should settle the debate about 16:9 vs. 4:3.

    In my Netflix watching I saw quite a few boom mics in the shots that would never have been seen in an overscan television world. I expect they will clean up those issues for the BR release.

    Those weren't boom mikes. Those were positronic neutrino relays.

    I thought that they were self sealing stem bolts.

    My copy was waiting when I got home. Popped it in right away. Only watched a few minutes, but boy does this look good!

    You can actually see a person walking around in the conference room from the exterior Enterprise shot at the end of the opening credits. :D

    I heard on a podcast that was actually Patrick Stewart filmed and inserted into the conference room windows.

    That's always been there.
    It's just that now, you can see it better.

    This. I won't have time until this weekend to do any extended, dedicated viewing. Running "Farpoint" while I do some other things, so I get to look every now and then. Very nice.

    Man, this is so tempting. Ideally, what they should do is include a $10-20 coupon for the eventual season 1 box set. If they did that, I'd probably bite.

    I like that idea, but they could just as easily offer a rebate that requires sending in the proof of purchase from this new "teaser" and achieve the same thing without having to do any extra printing now.

    "The Inner Light" is running now. This one is a major improvement. While the episode is excellent, I always thought the "outdoor" shots looked terrible. Much better now.

    Very impressed. The grain kind of bugs me a little but its so vastly superior to SD it blows your mind! I'm curious to see when in 2012 the 1st full season comes out and how much it costs.
