It would be nice if they included some audio commentaries, since I've heard that the original TNG sets don't have any. Honestly how hard would it be to get the TNG actors to do a few commentaries? In the Arrested Development Season 3 DVD they did the commentaries over the phone, so they really should have a few commentaries on these. You could even pay the actors for their time.
Of course, if they do decide to do commentaries, they should limit it 2-4 people per commentary, and do a bunch of them instead of having the entire cast do a few commentaries.

with the money they charged when they first released it (over 100 bucks!!) you would think we would get commentaries on key or popular episodes. damn paramount. It was not until Enterprise when we finally got commentaries.

Wil Wheaton has posted a bit of new information about the set. He sounds very excited about the documentaries for the set.

By the way, Amazon's has the set for pre-order for $306.99.

also what would attract people into a rebuying the sets would be not only for remastered episodes/new effects but to allow those (like me) who spent 700+ dollars a trade in program/ UPC cut out program and give us credit towards the purchase of the new sets :)

Remastered episodes would be hot.

The DVDs out now are okay, but there is noticable artifacting.

$300 is better, but I can't pull the trigger. Not when I don't have an HDTV yet, and absolutely don't have an HD/BR player.

I think I'll work on getting the TV first.

Achievement and trophy hunters? GTFO.

not everyone has an HDTV yet... HDTV cable, HD/BR players are still to expensive and HD TV's not in every home. With the exception of the flat panel monitors for the computers we have no LCD tv's in the house.

Until that changes, I cannot afford it at this time.

At least I can borrow TNG seasons 1, 2, and 4 from my sister. She just had a baby yesterday so she isn't going to have time for them. Heh.

I hear that. Our 27" SDTV works just fine, except our other TV may be going out. So, I thought I'd take the plunge and buy a HDTV as a present to myself. $800 is a lot of bones when you don't have a job, though.

My 27" SDTV is more than fine. 360 looks great, DVDs look good; I don't see the necessity in having an HDTV right now. $800 is a lot of scratch (to me) even with a job and a nice savings account.

Today is Tim Russ' birthday!

IMO, the Tuvok character is one of the two best in Voyager, with the EMH being the other. Tim Russ has played characters in TNG, DS9, Generations and Voyager. The Tuvok character has a prominent role in my favorite Star Trek game, Star Trek: Elite Force. All in all, his character has grown on me and is now one of my favorites in all of Trekdom.

Well, there are black Bajorans too. I can't recall if there are many more though. I think the fact that they are humanoids means that certain characteristics like hair, skin tone, number of fingers, or whatever may exist in other humanoids species. Remember the episode of TNG where a changeling looking creature told Picard, the Cadassian, Romulan, and Klingon that they all originate from the same thing.

Most races in Trek seem to have few if any variations (Ferengi for example), but there is some "human-like" diversity in others. I think it is more a limiation of trying to create diverse groups for so many aliens more than anything. The fact that all Ferengi are businessmen, all Klingons are warriors, and all Vulcan are pacifists is great for TV, but not realistic most of the time.

lol.......

Bashir or Zimmerman were perfect for Leeta.. but no, she had to go with a nasty looking ferengi. yuck. but then again...... she becomes the wife of the new grand nagus! that's like marrying someone who just inherited a empire... so i guess it works out.

Later on when we see Zimmerman at Jupiter Station, he seems more grumpy then ever.... good job Leeta!! its all your fault!!

I've seen a few remastered episodes since my local Fox shows them at Midnight or 1 Am on the weekends, and they really look great, even in SD. The new special effects are just perfect for the show.

Yeah, they are modern without being overstated.

because My20 (use to be UPN) likes to move it around on the weekends, I never get to see it. When I think it will be on Sunday at 2pm, bam..its not there.. but it ended up being shown on the Saturday before. Sometimes it won't show up at all over the weekend. :(

Might as well wait for the remastered dvds to come out then buy them.

maybe TNG will get the remastered treatment? but does it really need it? ...hmmm maybe.

Since the whole point of the updated special effects was so the effects look good in HD, I'm guessing that the remastered version of TOS will come out on HD DVD and/or Blu Ray, no SD DVD.
As for TNG, they have 4 more seasons, which would be way more work. I doubt that updating the special effects would be worth it, it would just cost way too much money.
Personally I would love to see some of the DS9 space battles redone with modern CGI (and if they remade the effects they could give the ships shields ;)).

Watched Live Free or Die Hard last night and was very surprised to see Tim Russ have a minor role! Interestingly enough, he was pretty much just Tuvok without the ears and even spouted out some technobabble!

I've been thinking about seeing the new Die Hard but I read that they will release an R rated DVD, so I'll just wait for that.
