    Never happen. That would put people out of the theater at 10 pm, local time. Plus, as much as I love BoBW and Trek, sitting through a 90-ish minute double episode was hard at the end. I'd prefer to have Emissary on its own...but I hold out no hope of DS9 getting a theater release.

    For this to happen, the start time would need to be earlier in the evening and that would be very difficult for some people coming from work.

    Set's been out since Tuesday. Been able to watch a couple of episodes.

    Two minor things I've noticed so far...

    First off, this is the first season with the "normal" TNG look as far as lighting and sets go. The horrible spandex uniforms are mostly gone, replaced by the classic look uniforms used for the rest of the series.

    And about the uniforms... first off, I'd never really noticed the seams running down the front of the tunics before. Also, the new uniforms are definitely a deeper, richer color in HD.

    And one more minor thing... was Counselor Troi's lipstick always so bright? It's like someone painted her lips with neon.

    I think the early S3 uniforms-the ones with the very visible lines-get phased out over the season. By BoBW, the "standard" uniform is in place for all regulars. I noticed the lines in the blooper reel last week during the BoBW event.

    While the BRs look great, I think the lighting was meant to compensate for the low resolution of tape, particularly on the bridge.

    Good summation. I remember people who were not even fans discussing the cliffhanger ending of season 3. I'd compare it to the 'Who Shot J.R.?' craze from the original DALLAS (I never watched DALLAS, but everybody talked about that cliffhanger.)I've never seen BOBW as an edited feature, and don't think I'd want to. The cliffhanger made it a classic. And I never thought the second half was as gripping as the first half.

    I don't think that's quite right. Some mainstream publication-TVGuide, probably-would have mentioned that in either a feature article or in their "spotlight" pieces devoted to different shows. I can confirm later this summer when I get my newspaper clippings from my parents. I should have something stashed in the old scrapbook.

    Just finished "The Ensigns of Command"(Melinda Snodgrass I Love You...BRAVO!) what a great episode.

    Jaw droppingly beautiful, and perfect in every regard! Yes, season 3 is my absolute favorite. Seeing it in HD is like watching it again for the first time. To Trekkies that have not jumped into the world of Blu-Ray, please do so. It is only logical :)
    Some days it is great to be a Star Trek fanatic.

    Bryan,Wasn't that the episode where the actor who plays Gosheven doesn't actually say anything in the episode due to a contract (or other) dispute of sorts? I never researched that, but I recall hearing about it years ago.

    ^ That would be it. The actor was unhappy with his performance and requested his lines be dubbed by someone else.

    Hmm. I never heard that bit of Trek trivia, but Jason knew the answer. Interesting, I didn't even noticed that the actor was dubbed.
    Tonight I will watch another of my favorites "The Survivors".

    Jason,Thanks. :)Bryan,I must admit, I have watched (more than once) for the dubbed lines spoken by the actor and still couldn't tell.
