If you like a good sci fi, as I do, you'll definitely like this ride on the refurbished Enterprise.
Verified purchase
I have to admit that I've always been a dyed in the wool Original Series Star Trek (TOS) fan. Because of that I was reluctant to embrace the Next Generation series. And for many years after its release, I didn't watch it. I had to get over the fact that it was a marketing ploy to milk the cash cow that Star Trek had become over the years after it's cancellation. That being said, I finally watched the entire series. I liked it. Not in the same way as the original (childhood memories were more dear), but as a separate extension of the Star Trek universe. The effects are good and although it took this first season for the actors and actresses to "find their characters", and feel comfortable playing those roles, it was worth hanging in until the entire series was complete. If you look at the first few episodes of the original Star Trek series, you'll find Leonard Nimoy shouting his lines in the pilot (1st pilot) and even smiling. Any actor has to become comfortable in the shoes he or she is wearing in order to define their emerging character. The writing on Next Gen is good in comparison to other television programs of this same era, and if you like a good sci fi, as I do, you'll definitely like this ride on the refurbished Enterprise.

Product was delivered on date promised. Received box in unbroken shrinkwrap. Continer is in like new condition undamaged. Disc play correctly. Only problem i am having is with the captions i have not found a way to view without two sets of captions i have and am trying different methods of turning of one or the other but not able to so far. Love the series and the acting as well as the visuals and sets. I love the look of the sets they could make you almost believe that the ship is real. And when they have trouble the actors/actresses act like the ship is hit very good. Forget the media reviewers trust the owners and trek lovers review. I do prefer the fold type box for the disc. I have had the ones like this with the spindle break apart and end up putting the disc in a jewel case for each disc. Yeah the fold out wears over time but at least it stays intact. Love the show.

Star Trek TNG Season 1 on Blu Ray...Make It So!
Verified purchase
I want to start by saying I was one of the lucky few that went and saw Star Trek TNG in the theater when they screen 2 episodes for the release of this new box set on Blu Ray. Not only did they look and sound great on screen, but we also got to see some AMAZING behind the scenes stuff on the restoration of this fantastic show. It was these features that made me go out and buy this set. Normally, I am an Original Series fan first, but with goodies like these, I had to get it. That said, they should have raffled off a copy at the screening, but what are you gonna do. I learned they will be doing these screenings for each additional season's release, so go out and treat yourself if you get the chance.

First thing is first. Paramount blew it by releasing this set with not just one, but three defective discs. I believe they are discs 1, 3 & 6. How do you let this happen? At least they quickly got a hotline out there to have them replaced, so be aware of this if you get a set that is not an updated corrected release. This over-site is why the set gets 4 stars and not 5. They deserve a little hit for being that careless.

I'm not going into a huge spec discussion as I do not currently have the home theater to comment like that. I just moved and bought an HD TV, so my review will be based on seeing this as bare bones as possible. But it's coming from a fan and I know what you like. So, you'll have to dig around to find a more spec heavy review.

THE PICTURE: The picture looks amazing. The colors and contrast are fantastic. They went back to the original negatives and re-edited the ENTIRE season, so we will never see this show look better. I want to answer the big question everyone has. I often hear, "If they are going back to the original negative and it was shot on film and they are recreating all the FX from scratch, then why aren't we getting a widescreen release of this show?" Well, after seeing the BTS featurettes, I learned this...they can't. I thought to myself, that's BS. You shot it on film, that means you can go widescreen. Well, yes and no. What happened was, back int the day of "square TV" they were framing each shot to fit that environment, so when you go into the "widescreen" portion of the film, you see all kinds of stuff like light stands and crew members. Since you were never supposed to see the full frame of the film, they knew those elements would be cropped out, so sadly, we can't have a true widescreen release of this series.

That aside, the FX, unlike the Original Series complete redo, retains all the model shots done by ILM...just the atmospheres (planets, stars, etc) have been recreated. The Enterprise looks insanely good and their uniforms are vibrant. It's interesting to see that lighting from the first season. It has very heavy shadows, which they would eventually trade in for even lighting.

AUDIO: I can only say it sounds great on a quality HDTV with no extra speakers. The theater mix sounded good, if that helps.

EXTRAS: Totally worth it alone. Not only do you get great featurettes on the BTS of the restoration, but Paramount actually did it right an carried over all the "Mission Files" from the DVD release, or it at least looks like it's all there. So rejoice that we haven't been totally screwed on having to buy these again.

That's it. Hope you like them. Engage!

How Many Times Can I Say "Wow!"?
Verified purchase
The truth is that there is very little, if anything at all, that can be written about STTNG that has not already been repeatedly covered by reviewers and fans. I can't pretend to offer any greater insights than those already offered, but wish only to pitch in a few comments that arise from my own experience of watching all seven seasons of the show in Blu-Ray format.

Let's cut to the chase on technical quality. This is, like the earlier release of the original Star Trek series on Blu-Ray a few years earlier, simply a spectacular example of meticulous and painstaking recreations of the original video masters. Both shows "sparkle" with a crispness, clarity, and depth of color that seemed impossible to imagine. In the case of the original series, it is like watching the show for the first time all over again, with a level of detail and clarity that could have never before seemed possible. In the case of STTNG, I can remember watching the show on TV when it was first released, and thinking how impressive the effects and the set designs were (of course, ILM was doing the effects, and so they were up to the highest possible quality levels), but the show always seemed to have a subtle shade of what I might call "80's beige" that seemed to settle over the episodes. No more. This re-scan and re-edit of the original studio masters bring this show up to levels that make it appear as it was filmed just yesterday in native high definition format. Detail is crisp to point of astonishing levels. Clarity is superb. Noise levels are almost non-existent (with the exception of one episode, "Time Squared," which, although was a favorite episode of mine, must have had the original masters lost somehow). The show just looks beautiful and lush, with gorgeous color set against a high definition screen. Honestly, its amazing what they did with this remastering effort.

Beyond this, it is pointless for me to further tangle with all the Star Trek questions: Kirk or Picard? NCC-1701, or NCC-1701D? Spock or Data? Overacting or underacting? Drama or thoughtfulness? Pushing the envelope or playing it safe? It's not really too important to me, those questions, because, in truth, these are two very different shows. They share the same heritage, but that's about where it ends. Many people cringed when Kirk and Picard had to share the same screen in "Generations," but that's probably just an example of how different these shows are. They have different approaches, different characterizations, and, in some ways, differing goals. They are both hugely entertaining and thought provoking in their own right (I grew up as a child watching the originals, and then as a young man with TNG came on), and although it is surprising to think that now TNG is a quarter of a century old (ST-TOS is now more than half a century old), that distance can help us see both shows in the historical context in which they were made, and we can enjoy each for what they are.

But in returning to the remastering process that was undertaken for each show, these must surely rank as some of the most impressive works done in TV history. These shows now sparkle in ways they never could before, and as I said in my review of TOS, it's like an entirely new experience that even those who MADE the show themselves could not experience due to the limitations of the reproduction technology of the day. Thankfully, these shows were filmed on 35mm and made use of some of TV's great video technicians, and this is what has allowed the rescans to pull out such incredible levels of detail that were never before visible.

I may write a few more reviews on some of the separate seasons of STTNG, but for Season One, the one thing that sticks out in my mind is how much they "got it right" so soon. Imagine coming onboard this project with the legendary status of the original show. What a risk to take, both for the actors and for the production staff. And yet, with very few missteps, STTNG got off to a flying start, and, dare I say it (I'm contradicting what I said earlier about not getting tangled up in disagreements about the shows) introduced the greatest "villain" (if that is what he is) in the show's history, something I could have never believed possible after seeing Ricardo Montalban in "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan," whom I always felt was Star Trek's greatest villain. The character "Q" brought so much to the table so quickly that it allowed the cast to establish themselves and set the tone for a new "Star Trek" that would see it carried for seven seasons, and it could have been more, if the cast had not been so completely worn out from the whole thing.

So, what can I say other than, now that the entire STTNG show (all seven seasons) is now available in the remastered Blu-Ray format, run don't walk, to pick them up, and see the show completely anew. And if you haven't seen the Blu-Ray of the original series, I would say exactly the same thing, because it is an amazing adventure to see it in this format. Seven stars. No, eight.

Worth it!

At first, I was hesitant about purchasing the Blu-Ray release of TNG, due to the fact that I worked hard to collect the entire DVD collection over a period of several years. While the video quality of the DVD's was subpar, they weren't any better when they aired on TV, so I was satisfied with that. Fast forward to this year, when I learned about the re-release. I decided to give the first season a chance, at the pre-order discount price. If I liked it enough, I would consider buying the seasons again and dumping the DVD's. Boy, am I glad I did. The quality of the video is amazing, and it makes the original tv broadcasts look absolutely terrible by comparison. Since it's restored from the original film, it looks like a true Blu-Ray. The visual effects that couldn't be restored were recreated in a very subtle fashion so that it looked original. The first season was not my favorite by any means, but I am enjoying these episodes immensely, merely because of the quality. The seasons aren't packaged as nicely as the DVD's, but the more I thought about it, those individual seasons took up a lot of space on my shelf and removing a disc was a annoying task. The new packaging is much smaller and more effective.

Since I can stream the other episodes from Netflix in the meantime, I'm going to sell my DVD collection and wait with excitement for the remaining seasons!

Absolutely Exceptional!

Remarkable what the Studio was able to do with this Blu-Ray; the transfer of this series is phenomenal as well as comprehensive. They packed everything into this, special features on every disc, interviews, background stories, profound picture quality, not even comparable to the original transfers. This is a better re-mastering than even other shows that have been re-mastered, and for the value of this material and workmanship, they are definitely "underpriced", which is also remarkable. I paid twice as much for the original seasons, and at half price for these, they are about three times the content and quality. The "Okoudas" where involved in this project, and they stuck with the series "originality", painstaking, by their own confession, so I am guessing this was not only the studio's attempt to please the fans, but the "Okoudas" attempt to show the love of the series. Right now this has to be the most valued Star Trek product out there, labor, love, accuracy and beauty, all considered; just remarkable. I sincerely hope the STNG, and all around Star Trek community supports this project by purchasing these incredible results. I believe if this works for the studio, then they will release Deep Space Nine and Voyager on Blu-Ray as well...

I was really glad when they brought out The Next Generation TV series. It had been a long drought since Star Trek the Animated Series and of course the original Star Trek.
If you don't own the previous version of The Next Generation, then this is a more reasonably priced version for you to pick up. I don't have the earlier version, but I understand this is all the same content...for a lower price(at the time of this writing)
You get seven discs included in this package with almost 20 hours of content.

Here's a list of what is included on each disc:

Disc 1
Encounter at Farpoint (introduction of recurring character Q )
The Naked Now
Code of Honor

Disc 2
The Last Outpost
Where No One Has Gone Before
Lonely Among Us
Justice

Disc 3
The Battle
Hide and Q
Haven
The Big Goodbye

Disc 4
Datalore
Angel One
11001001
Too Short a Season

Disc 5
When the Bough Breaks
Home Soil
Coming of Age
Heart of Glory

Disc 6
The Arsenal of Freedom
Symbiosis
Skin of Evil
We'll Always Have Paris

Disc 7
Conspiracy
The Neutral Zone
Mission Logs (Special Features)
The Beginning
Selected Crew Analysis
The Making of a Legend
Memorable Missions

Again, I enjoy this series and recommend it, although I think the later seasons are better. And I definitely think this is a much more reasonable price point for the average person(again as of this writing), than the $50-$60 price of the earlier version of this series.

"These are the continuing voyages of the USS Enterprise" in blu ray.

Okay, we all know what Star Trek is about, so I'm not going to go over the plot. I will say that the stories are very interesting, well thought out, well written, and well acted. I really like how Star Trek touches on the 'Human Emotion and "Human Element".

I want to talk about the blu ray transfer, and it's outstanding. The image is crystal clear and sharp as a razor. I was honestly speechless watching it. I grew up with ST:TNG, and it was like I was watching it all over again. The colors are very sharp, and I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I'm always amazed on how colorful and vibrant the images are.

When I was reading other reviews, there were a lot of complaints on the sound. UPDATE: It seems that the further you go into the episodes, at times, the worse it gets. One of the episodes sounds like it was recored in a bathroom, a lot of echo and muffled. Even though it's not perfect, I'm still glad I have it.

***UPDATE 10/6: If you have the early set, you'll have problem with sound on some of the episodes. CBS/Paramount is having a disc exchange. Just send them an e-mail to: phe.stng@bydeluxe.com. They'll ask for the code on the back of the disc on the inner right. It may be hard to see, but it's there. It took them about a week to send me the replacements blu rays. ***

Usually, I don't care about extras when it comes to DVD, but this has a lot of them, and they're fantastic.

Now, for the price. Yes, it's very expensive, but man, it's worth it. I passed on buying the dvd and waited for the blu ray, and man, I'm glad I did. It was worth the wait.

If you know someone that's a Star Trek fan, this is a must have for them. They won't be sorry to get this, and neither was I when I bought it. I can't wait for the rest of the seasons to come to blu ray.
