    For those interested, the complete first season is coming to Blu-Ray on July 24. The 13 seconds of missing film from “Sins of the Father” have since been located in a mislabeled box, and the standard definition video will be replaced for the version of the episode in the full season set.

    Amazon has it for pre-order now. At $90, that might just be too steep for me. I may be swayed if the reviews are positive.

    I was blown away by how good Encounter at Farpoint looked and sounded on the sampler that I am willing to put up with Season 1's lousy episodes. There are still mostly good ones in the bunch.

    Just a heads up that Amazon has this for $59.99 today.

    Thank god their pre-order guarantees to match lowest price! That, and $60 is dead on perfect price for this.

    I will still be getting mine from Best Buy Tuesday morning. I can get it for $54.99 with a traded in DVD. Amazon is just copying Best Buys price and they are charging tax now for those of us in Texas so no savings anymore.

    I just got back from the Fathom Event for this and it looked excellent. I'll be getting by Blu from Best Buy tomorrow.

    I also came back from the Fathom event. I was disappointed in the video quality (quite a bit of noise), but I think the fault lies with the transmission to the theater.
    Incidentally, the promo they ran for Season 2 looked better than the two episodes shown.:huh:

    I agree that the season 2 footage looked incredible. It is possible that they only used the shots that looked the best of the season however.

    GET A $10 CREDIT ON YOUR PURCHASE OF ST:TNG BLU-RAY AT BEST BUY
    Order at BestBuy.com and select in-store pickup. This will get you a $10 savings code (instead of the $5 you'd get for a traded dvd). Unless, of course, you don't plan to buy anything from Best Buy before the end of August (code expires).

    It had to be the transmission, Neal. I didn't find any problem in the presentation outside of what was in the show originally (cheap-ish looking sets).

    Now I wanna see some DS9 in high def on the theater screen...

    Apparently the ST:TNG blus have 3 defective discs, but there is a replacement program being set up.

    To get the replacement discs you just have to give them the codes that are printed on the 3 discs.
