Just wanted to extend my congratulations to Paramount on their release of Star Trek: The Next Generation season 1 on DVD (at last!). We asked for it and we got it: Complete season set Video quality better than I've ever seen it on TV 5.1 remix + original soundtrack A few nice featurettes Terrific Lcars DVD menus Additionally, I was surprised that 1) the R1 packaging is really smart (much better than the photos made it look). I have no big regrets over missing out on the R2 dust magnet boxes. 2) I really enjoyed Encounter at Farpoint. I'd only seen this ep once (about 14 yrs ago ), and didn't like it at the time. Maybe it was the 5.1. Maybe it was the hilariously OTT acting by Sirtis & Crosby. Whatever, it bodes well for the rest of the season. But let's not say there's no room for improvement. I would personally love to see 1) Commentaries on selected episodes by cast & crew (maybe too late for TNG, but how about DS9) 2) Original episode trailers (in Easter Eggs if need be) 3) Some gag reels 4) DS9 in 2003. Please don't release Voyager before DS9. 5) Not so important, but how about a fabric strip in the box, similar to the one in The Sopranos sets. Getting the inner box out can be a bit tricky. 6) How about a text commentary of episode "nitpicks" and factoids. Anyone else?
