TNG Blu-ray Release


Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation will soon be able to see the series on Blu-ray beginning next year.

The Blu-ray release will begin in January of 2012 with a sampler including the pilot and several popular episodes.

After that, the first season will be released on Blu-ray later in 2012 and subsequent seasons will follow thereafter.

“Fans have been clamoring for a high-definition release of Star Trek: The Next Generation,” said Ken Ross, Executive Vice President and General Manager of CBS Entertainment. “Transferring the series to high-definition presented difficult technical challenges, but our team has come up with a process to create true 1080p HD masters with true HD visual effects. We can’t wait to show fans how pristine the series looks and sounds with our upcoming Blu-ray releases.”

The TNG sampler (Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Next Level) will be released on January 31, 2012. The single disc will include: Encounter at Farpoint, Sins of the Father and The Inner Light. The sampler will sell for $21.99.

    what does recomposied effects mean? does that we still get the crappy looking q link ball in Farpoint or will they update it ? 🙂 Mean questions

    I severely doubt they’ll convert it from 4:3 to 16:9, since they didn’t for TOS.

    Recompositioned means that the original effects were all edited together on VHS-quality tape. Therefore all of the special effects need to be completely redone either from scratch or the original 35mm film of the models. Denise and Michael Okuda supervised the process for TOS and are once again in charge for TNG.

    I hope the season sets arent priced at some insane amount.

  • They thought they were worth $100 per season BEFORE they paid people to augment them… don’t hold your breath.

    I certainly hope that the episodes are actually listed in order, unlike on the remastered Star Trek: The Original Series set released a couple of years (I believe) back.
