I watched my 'sampler' over the weekend and was overall, VERY impressed. It really looked better than I have ever seen this show look (obviously). When TNG was on originally, it was my favorite show and to this day is still in the top five. But, it's been SO long since I've watched any as the quality really reveals itself on modern viewing gear.

The sampler really fired me to re-watch the entire series. It's going to be hard to justify the costs of each season's Blu Ray, but I'm seriously considering making the investment. I was just as excited watching these three episodes as I was the first time I saw them. They looked gorgeous and the ole Enterprise 1701-D has NEVER looked better.

Two quick thoughts:

1) When we finally get season 7 released, will we even be using BR anymore or will we be on to the next format?

2) To those who wished this was in 16x9.....you can always zoom your tv if you really want to (though I stand on my OAR pulpit).

I just watched it over the weekend and forgot to watch for the SD footage. It passed by without me even noticing it! I'll have to go back and watch it again to see if I can spot it.

Overall I was very impressed. Especially with the special effects. With them being redone, they hold up very well. I was stunned when thinking about how those core components were shot in the 80's. I'll probably buy a season set or two after they've been out for awhile and have a price drop. I never considered the DVDs when they initially came out at that price, but these Blu-rays will be very tempting!

From my understanding, the effects (notable the "jellyfish") weren't redone. Given how different it looks, I wonder how good the original SD video transfer was. It's not just low-res, it's muddy and low contrast. Either the original scan, or the post-production processing, seems to have really fouled up the image compared to the original 35mm images.

Interesting thread bump. Good timing--the next episode for us to watch is Sins of the Father, which I believe is on the DVD Sampler. I'm going to try to pick it up this weekend.

The first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation on Blu-ray is due this summer. One of the elements that has been recreated using CGI is the Crystalline Entity...

Also in a Facebook conversation, Meyer mentioned that those missing thirteen seconds from "Sins of the Father" which had to be upscaled for the Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level release in January have been found, so the season three release (in 2013) will included the remastered element.

Not too much new information there, but there is a clip from "Where No One Has Gone Before" that looks really good. The best thing about the article is the comments section.

I think I'll pass. Yeah, they look and sound incredible, but $80/season just isn't worth it to me. Felt the same about the DVD sets when they came out at $100/season.

At just about $3/episode it's totally worth it to me.

Considering the amount of work that went into creating these HD conversions, I think the price is justified. I always considered the $100/season DVD set pricing unreasonable and I never bought them. If I have the mone, I'll probably buy these.

On 7/23, there's going to be an in-theater event where they will show the HD versions of "Where No One Has Gone Before" and "Measure of a Man", along with some behind-the-scenes material. It's $12.50.

It's similar to what they did for "The Cage" as part of the TOS remastering project.

As it turns out, it's not Patrick Stewart.

Startrek.com has the details of that shot straight from the Okudas.

Nearest theater participating is in Kenosha... too far to go to.

I'm not sure why Marcus Theatres (who owns 99% of theaters in SE Wisconsin) isn't participating.

I've been thinking about it all day! I'm considering wearing my Starfleet uniform for the occasion. Someone said they might not let me in.

No one here in uniform, but there is a pretty good turnout. Looks like most of these people were born after TNG aired, though.

That's pretty wild that there is that much of a following from the younger generation.

I realize I should already know this, but I surrender any hope at geek/nerd cred and ask those that I am sure can quickly answer: when was the last Trek film (Next Gen) released? and how long has it been since Enterprise (the last TV series) was on the air?

Mostly a curiousity question, but the comments above ('bout "the next generation") have me thinking it can't be far off since it has been such a long (that one I do know) time since TNG was originally aired.

TNG ended on television in 1994. It immediately went to movies, and "Generations" was released in November 1994. First Contact was released in 1996, Insurrection was released in 1998, and Nemesis in 2002.

In other words, if you are younger than 15 or so, you probably would not recall ever seeing a first run TNG story.

Enterprise ran from 2001 to 2005, so yeah, that wasn't that long ago, but you'd still have to be at least 9-10 to really remember seeing any of it first run.
