個人的に好きなのはデータ少佐。性能のいいアンドロイドだが船ではナンバー3。正確無比でありながら人間になりたいと望み、人間について様々に学んでいくその姿が好きだ。そしてピカード艦長。内に激しさを秘めながらも、いついかなる時も冷静であろうとするその姿。尊敬と信頼に値する艦長だ。それからターシャ。この第1シーズンの途中で降板（色々な事情があったらしいが）となるのだが、そのラストのエピソード（Skin of Evil）が何度見ても泣ける。
あのブリッジが造られていく工事過程も映像にはあった。かつて、ラスベガスヒルトンにあったアトラクション（Star Trek：The Experience）に行ったことがあるが、あのブリッジが再現されていて感激した記憶がよみがえる。
We can indeed, when the remastering is as good as Season One's. Just as they did with The Original Series, CBS have retrieved the show's original celluloid from their vault - well, all except two seconds' worth - and made it look as good as new. Motion is now rock solid, detail amazing, colour pure and true. The only fly in the ointment is that sometimes it's just about possible to make out a bit of grain, but only people with perception as keen as Geordi's visor's would notice it, unless they were positively looking for it.
Unlike TOS, TNG comes without the option of modern CGI, but the remastered visual effects have been polished up so beautifully that this doesn't feel anything to regret. As for audio, the discs follow TOS's in giving us 7.1 channel DTS HD MA: the lossless encoding reproduces dialogue immaculately, but is merciless in exposing the occasional tinniness of the score, especially any fleeting electronica and the chromium-plated title music. (The first release of this collection notoriously shipped with several audio defects, but my copy, bought directly from amazon.co.uk in October 2012, was flawless.)
Extras supplement the featurettes from the DVD edition with a documentary about the conversion of the show for Blu, ninety minutes or so of newly taped interviews and a funnier than usual gag reel, which comes with a picture quality the like of which I haven't seen since the Post Office inflicted VHS commercials on its queues back in the 1980s. Mentioning VHS reminds me that the discs come in a case as slim as a movie's, so that an entire season of HD Star Trek now takes up only half the shelf space of an old-fashioned two-episode cassette.
So, to buy or not to buy? TNG's first season was probably its weakest, with writers like Michael Piller and Ronald Moore yet to beam on board. Nevertheless, there are many episodes that are thoroughly entertaining: as well as the powerful pilot, there's a second story with the marvellous Q, and it has been fun revisiting Lore, Dixon Hill and sundry Klingons and Romulans. Season One is also memorable for an episode reminiscent of Alien, which has the distinction of being the only Star Trek ep ever banned by the BBC! And even the season's harshest critic would have to concede that long before its end, its magnificent cast were well on the way to discovering their characters' potential. But what ultimately makes this Blu-box an essential purchase for any Trekkie lucky enough to be able to afford it is, I think, the sheer glory of CBS's remastering. The new discs' audio-visual quality transcends DVD's by such a wide margin that if you buy this box, you'll almost feel as though as you're seeing TNG for the first time.
But you know what? That's exactly what they've done. And not only that, you know that 13 seconds of camera negative that was missing from Sins of the Father? They found that too, so when the Season 3 box set comes out, that episode, along with every single one of the other 177, will be complete and in full HD.
Many, many people have bashed Paramount over the last 15 years for their less-than-stellar DVD releases, me being one of them. Well, with this one box set (so far), they're forgiven. It's really quite hard to explain how much better the show looks. And it's not just the VFX, which do look great, it's the live footage too. When you see it, you'll honestly wonder how the hell this wonderful show got such a terrible presentation for the last 25 years. Of course, not every shot it great; in Encounter at Farpoint there is a shot of Patrick Stewart standing up in court before Q where there is a darkened area at the top of the screen and this is still present, clearly it was a photographic shortfall and any that are present throughout the series were simple shot that way. But that is honestly the only niggle I can think of. The actors look more real than ever, so you'll see the highs (and lows) of their performances more clearly than ever. The model work done originally is, for the most part, astoundingly good. Some missing or damaged effects elements have either been recreated digitally or replaced, but everything works. You'll most likely love the restoration featurette; I recommend watching it first to fully appreciate the effort that has been put in. It answers that question of why the show isn't presented in 16:9, which basically is impossible because almost every shot was framed to be matted out at 4:3, all model work was composited in a 4:3 frame so there is no further information to present outside of this, etc. I expect most fans of the show who saw it first time around understand all this and don't care.
I for one was never a huge fan of Season 1 (or Season 7) but I've watched half of this set and I'm just loving it. So I can't imagine how much I'm going to enjoy the next set. Any questions, just post a comment and I'll try to reply ASAP.
The special effects have been lovingly recreated and re-composited. Don't worry, there are no George Lucas style reworkings going on here, an effort has been made to preserve the original style of the effects shots.
So, the only iffy things here are the episodes themselves. Season 1 of The Next Gen is not a great bunch of episodes, especially in comparison to what would come. It can be forgiven much of the time, it was a new show trying to find it's way and it was restricted by the budget and styling of the late 1980s. But still, there is some very dodgy acting and dialogue and the stories sometimes feel like they are taken from The Original Series back in the 60s. Characters haven't quite found their place yet - LaForge is strangely hyperactive a lot of the time, Worf is slightly more awkward, Wesley is... well, he was always like that really, wasn't he?
However, I will say that watching season 1 on blu-ray has made it a more enjoyable experience. I can honestly say that I never expected I would watch season 1 again, but I'm actually having quite a lot of fun with it. Although there are a lot of quite silly episodes which almost make you embarrassed to be watching (Justice, When the Bough Breaks, Hide and Q, Angel One) that's not to say there isn't some good stuff on here (Conspiracy, Coming of Age, Datalore).
It's a weak season of a great show (if you're wondering, season 3 is where the show really began to become classic Star Trek). It's a show I've been away from for a long time and I'm glad to be watching it again. It's worth a purchase because it looks absolutely incredible. Watch the previews before each episode, which show clips from the show in their unremastered format, and compare that to the episode which follows. It's stunning.
In addition, the special features are fantastic as well. The centrepiece is an excellent new 90 minute documentary focusing on the first season. We are also given all bonus features from the DVD release. If buying all of TNG on blu-ray means that the superb Deep Space Nine will get the remastered treatment then I'm in all the way! In the meantime, I'm going to really enjoy these releases.
Dear Star Trek Fans,
We have discovered an anomaly in the English 7.1 DTS Master Audio track in our Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 1 Blu-ray Box set. There are some episodes that inadvertently had their front channel designations incorrectly mapped, resulting in an undesired playback experience when listening to them in a 7.1 or 5.1 Surround Sound environment.
We are quickly working to remedy the situation. Replacement discs (Disc 1, 3 and 4) will be made available free of charge. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details regarding the replacement program or call 001 877 335 8936.
We strive to provide our fans the best Blu-ray experience possible and sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
Now I have a multi region blu ray player, so if they send me region A discs im okay with that.
they couldnt confirm whether the discs would be region A or B. But paramount releases tend to be region free, and seeing as this release is a 25 year old show I doubt it will be region coded.
good to know anyway for those who have already bought the sets and if there is no word from CBS/Paramount Uk/Europe about a disc replacement program, at least there is the american avenue to go down.
ive already called, I had to give them a code that is on the inner ring of the reverse side of the disc and they said they will begin posting replacement discs out mid august!
Overall this release is outstanding. The picture quality is everything you would expect from a blu ray really.
There are audio issues with the following episodes: Encounter at Farpoint, Encountr at Farpoint, Hide and Q, The Big Goodbye, Datalore, 11001001 and Too Short a Season.
to be honest, i didnt even notice the audio issue on E @ Farpoint until I read about it and went to check.
the problem is that the spoken parts of the audio tracks on these episodes are distributed unevenly across the speakers for anyone using a digital surround sound system.
which causes problems for anyone who have their speakers spread out throughout the room, as the speech will sound as if its only coming from one corner.
Im deaf in one ear, so i have problems discerning where sounds come from anyways, so i have always had all my speakers in one area.... which is probably why i never noticed the problem initially.
despite this setback, the episodes are still very watchable. it hasnt dented my enjoyment of them at all. for those who cant cope with the unbalanced sound, you can always revert back to the 2.0 track originally broadcast by going to the main menu which sorts out the problem.
The one episode that is VERY noticeable in relation to unbalanced sound is 'Haven'. for the first 2 mins 27 seconds the sound is very echoy and tinny. then all of a sudden it goes back to proper 7.1 dts.... the jump is very noticeable and jarring.
In addition to this, in Haven from about 28 minutes on (starts in the scene in the holodeck with Riker, Troi and her fiancee) there is a noticable echo effect on all the audio and remains until the end of the episode.
again, to avoid this annoyance you can revert to the 2.0 track which doesnt have the same problem.
some users are reporting lip syncing problems on the 3rd installment of special features on the 6th disc. some are not. that problem at least would seem to be an issue with settings on individual players, rather than the discs themselves.
i checked my 3rd part of the special features and no problem whatsoever with me.
no word yet from CBS/Paramount what they are going to do about this, but its been said that they are already investigating.....
the problem is noticeable, but it only really stands out in Haven. and to a much lesser degree in the other episodes listed.
im still really enjoying the series! but i do sincerely hope some sort of disc replacment program is rolled out......
it would damage sales of future seasons if they didnt.
I give the video quality and special effects a full five stars. the audio problems, given the price this set cost is very dissapointing which is why ive rated the product overall as three stars.
I sincerely hope CBS/Paramount issue replacment discs for consumers.
If the problem is left as it is, I would not be buying future seasons!
