Wow, between those last ones, I felt like I was watching TBS circa 1990.

Anyone else ever get hooked on the brothahs?

I wouldn't show that to Severino anytime soon. Also, RIP Capt. Lou.

So many of my childhood fantasies revolved around this show.

Is it weird that I most remember watching these shows as a kid?

Really, I don't remember watching much else besides PBS shows when I was really young.

Damn, the Blu-ray TNG opening looks so pretty. They still never fixed the stars in Saturn's rings though.

It's crazy that Brent Spiner was credited so low.

Edit: just realized it's alphabetical after Frakes. Forgive me.

The whole series looks remarkable in blu-ray. It also sounds fantastic. Because of the way TNG was edited (using video), they basically had to go back and reassemble most of the show. All the digital effects that were done in video had to be completely re-done because they just couldn't get them to look good enough using the usual digital conversion techniques. You read about some of it here: http://trekmovie.com/2012/07/23/review-star-trek-the-next-generation-season-1-blu-ray-new-preview-images/

Here's a better explanation of what they did in the re-master. The reason you notice they didn't fix the stars showing up in the rings is because they weren't trying to do that in the first place - no changes were made to the VFX unless they had to (if the effects were done in video, or if they couldn't find the original prints).

Quote:
Are the visual effects being redone in the same way as TOS-R?

No, they are not complete replacements like TOS-R was. Video-created effects will be redone. These include effects such as phasers, photon torpedoes, and most of the orbital planetscapes.

For starships in most cases the footage of the original studio models (which were made with all kinds of details that were not able to be seen in standard definition) will be used and it looks better than ever. However, the occasional physical model footage may have been lost or is considered otherwise unusable for high definition and so it may be substituted with a CG version.

What is the aspect ratio of TNG Remastered?

TNG was shot on 35mm film using standard spherical lenses and produced for standard definition television (4:3 ratio). As such, TNG-R will be released in 4:3 with pillar-boxes on the sides to keep the proper aspect ratio, just like the Blu-ray releases of TOS-R. The versions being prepared for broadcast syndication and digital distribution may be different.

Will they correct inconsistency x, y, or, z?

Probably not. This is mostly a film transfer operation, re-scanning the original film into high definition. CG is used for things that cannot be transferred (video effects like the phaser fire). That’s about it. Expect pretty much everything to be the same. There may be the occasional tweak fixing small oversights such as the location of the energy beam in “Encounter and Farpoint” and inserting the correct TOS Enterprise diagram on Data’s research station screen in “The Naked Now.” Changing anything live-action such as the infamous black cardboard on the Season 1/2 bridge set, or tweaking dialog or sound effects, isn’t what this is about. The episodes have been made, and were made, years ago. This is them again, but with the sharper detail and more vibrant color that high-definition offers.
