    The only weirdness I've seen so far is the saucer separation sequence in Farpoint. The lighting looks flickery and the back of the saucer looks pixellated. I wonder if that's upconverted SD material composited with other HD material, because the engineering section looks fine.

    I'm going to guess an MSRP in the $150 range, and a street price around $100.

    That's pretty much exactly my guess.

    And me with a kid starting college (meaning money's really tight)...

    :(

    176 episodes at $100 would be $.56 per episode for a Blu-Ray version. Seems very fair to me. I'll be getting it if that's the price.

    I assume the in 2012 means probably not until towards the end of 2012?

    If these are priced similarly to the DVDs, then they will be $100/season or around $4/episode.

    Yeah, I meant season box set, not series box set. Sorry.

    Ah, well that changes things entirely, doesn't it.

    No way will I be getting it at $100 per season.

    Well after mild criticism by me about the grain I remembered that my PS3 was set to gaming mode which uses standard color settings. After switching to my calibrated scheme you really can't notice the grain and it looks amazing!

    Well, I'd say YOU owe ST:TNG an apology!

    I've got a friend who is already complaining that the disc is in 4:3.

    OAR for the win.

    If it had been done 16:9 to begin with, then it should be that, but it wasn't and we'll have to live with it as it was.

    I'm guessing they'll do the same thing they did with the T.O.S. set and make good use of the space around the sides for trivia and other nice bonuses.
