Damn, gold-pressed latinum value in Star Trek is more volatile than in real life apparently.


FTFY there.

No, I mean gold. In one of those videos it goes from being a precious metal to, as Quarck put it, useless.

Classy CBS! Doing the right thing regardless of cost. And you know seasons 2-6 won't have this issue.

Saw that on Blu-Ray.com.

I'll have to check my set and get that taken care of as soon as I can.

Hopefully this is a fluke and that's it going forward. They're not the only one with audio issues in releases, though I think it's been a while since I've seen a replacement program for a release.

I gave the number (1-866-335-8936) and the process was smooth. Read off the SL number on the disc, gave them on my info, and I was on my way. Looks like the replacement discs are shipping Mid-August. Really, really fast response on their part.

Also, someone in the comments of the article ITDEFX posted said, "Do we dare tell them of the missing Phaser blast?" and posted this set of pictures. http://imgur.com/a/tjr4t#0 Hillarious. I suppose a frame-by-frame project of this magnitude won't be perfect.

There is no guaranty that this won't happen again. I am wondering how many upconverted from SD frames/seconds will start popping up each season? They talked about how they found every single piece of film because the original team(s) kept detail records of everything. But I am glad they were quick to respond to it.

Fuck...I am actually going out of the county for my honeymoon when it comes out...so I am going to have to wait til I get back.

Well, no, not an iron clad promise it won't happen again. But disc replacement is expensive. You know their QA routines will be a lot more strict.

Or it won't and they'll be dumbasses again. We'll see.

Is it me or Michael Okuda wife just sits in frame and doesn't say a word in most of these interviews? I know she's done video editing for some of the star trek series. You know what I have also noticed? The credits at the end of each episodes are the same. They didn't do like the star wars special edition where they had a SPECIAL EDITION section for those people who enhanced the film. Hmm.... You know they should put that in.

S2 of TNG on BD has a release date, December 4th.

http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B0095XPZBC/

Currently $90.99 on Amazon, so I think it might come down a little bit before release. Probably be the same $59.99 or so we had for S1.

I saw that too... I am hoping that the 59.99 price point for first week will be a trend for the other seasons as well.

I am surprised there is so much emphasis on Measure of a man instead of Q who? for the box set. It's too bad they aren't going to do much with the Cube model as you can tell it's a bash kit in HD.

Hey has anyone gotten their season 1 disc replacements yet? web sites are reporting either people have gotten them or it's delayed til this month...

I did call for my disc replacements but the lady on the other line didn't even ask me for the numbers on disc one for verification so I had to remind her. I'm going to call tomorrow to make sure I am on the list.

I heard they got delayed. They're fixing the missing phaser blast. Should be sent in "early September"

Here's to hoping. I got the silent treatment over email after I asked. I sent 4 replies saying "Did I provide you with the information you requested?" Finally I had to email the main address, and they finally answered me and assured me I was on the list for a replacement.

Not just the phaser blast but the whole warped stars needs to be fixed for Naked now.....now that bothers me when Picard says in his log that they are traveling at warp and the stars aren't at warp...

I really hope they come out soon because the audio mix is pretty good in 5.1/7.1.

There's some clickable items as well, so it's worth taking a look.

I don't know if I care for it, but if Paramount thinks that the secret to a billion box office take is to put "Dark" in the titles, then Godspeed and best of luck to them.

Finishing up Season 6 of Deep Space Nine today. I truly am glad to have actually taken a chance on the show. It was because of all of the glowing reviews here. At first it had several things that disinterested me (Cardassians who were very one dimensional on TNG, one main location, O'Brien, etc.) but it's been pretty exciting. I'll need to go back and re-start the discussion once I'm finished with the show.

Bashir and O'Brien's relationship I think is one of the better parts of the show. Miles seems to truly hate Bashir sometimes, but he's really the only buddy he has.

I just started DS9 and I'm about 6 or 7 episodes in. This is the first time I've watched since the original airings almost 20 years ago. It's funny, I know the characters very well but I don't remember anything that happened to them. Should be fun.

You're lucky. I hope one day I get to that so I can enjoy the perfection that is DS9 with wide eyed glee.
