'Star Trek Into Darkness' teaser: Benedict Cumberbatch is out for vengeance

The moment that is sure to spark the imaginations of Trekkies everywhere isn’t seen, it’s spoken — by the seeming villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch (i.e. Benny Batch). “You think your world is safe,” he intones darkly over shots that start out on Earth. “It is an illusion, a comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned. To have. My. Vengeance.”

What did that have to do with TNG or the blu-ray release?

More Star Trek is good for you.

FYI, Seasons 1-5 are available in HD on Amazon Instant Video. Free to Prime subscribers. I've watched a few and they look really good.

They do look great on Amazon. I'm in the process of showing them to my kids for the first time. We are almost done with the second season. It's been quite a while since I watched most these episodes. Many of them, I haven't seen since they first aired. I had forgotten just how bad a majority of the season 1 and season 2 episodes are. Wesley is even more annoying than I remember. IIRC, the show really starts to come into its own in season 3.

I actually started watching this show a year or two ago. I might have even finished season 2. Then they announced this HD thing and I stopped watching. Figured I wait to watch it in HD. So glad to see they are putting it on streaming. I wasn't about to pay the prices they were asking for the Blu-rays.

I thought they were supposed to be 16:9. "The Inner Light" is only 4:3.

The HD is nice, though.

No...none were shot in 16:9. They were all shot on video and then remastered for the blu ray release. Sadly, none will ever be in 16x9 unless they are cropped.

No, they were shot on film, but framed for a 4:3 picture. The effects were composited in video. That's why they have to redo the effects for this HD release. They had to digitize the film shots, create new effects shots, and re-composite and re-edit everything.

Would they look any better on Blu-rays disk? I don't think Amazon can stream Blu-rays.

I wonder if Netflix is going to get the HD episodes.

I'm watching "Best of Both Worlds, Part II" and it looks great.

I was watching TNG on BBC America HD this afternoon, and noticed that the episodes were the HD remastered versions. Apparently, beginning in June, BBC America HD started to show the remastered first season episodes:

I'm not sure if they have the rights yet to any other remastered seasons.

i appreciate the heads up - i finally caught a few of the se1 eps, and, wow!, cannot believe the detail - amazing hd quality for a 27yo show.

here's hoping bbca picks up other remastered seasons.

Interesting... did not know about this. Too bad that isn't much in season 1 worth watching.

I second the hope.

Sadly? Shouldn't we be happy that they have maintained the original aspect ratio?
