But somewhat surprisingly, there also are no BD-Live features either probably no great loss, as most BD-Live "content" seems to consist primarily of trailers, teasers and other ads anyway. The disc's navigation scheme resembles the beautiful "LCARS"-styled theme that was used on the original dvd-format release, along with pleasant background sound effects.
You can play all episodes on the disc sequentially or individually, select the sound output desired regular stereo or 7. The sound is incredibly crystal-clear, even in regular two-channel stereo, and the 7. Visually, the HD remastering is about as perfect as one can possibly hope for, especially given the level of difficulty and complexity involved in remastering the original source material which to put it simply was a mix of analog film and video to p.
Colors and their hues and saturation levels - including but not limited to flesh tones - have been thoroughly corrected and stabilized. Contrast has been dramatically improved throughout, but not so much that the depth of black levels would be ruined.
To their credit, CBS and Paramount state this on the disc's packaging. However, since this disc's release the "lost" footage HAS been found, restored, remastered in high definition, and will replace those 13 seconds of upconverted video in that episode when its season's boxed set is released. Finally, this disc plays perfectly smoothly without any skips, stalls, stutters or dropouts. When I first heard that Paramount and CBS decided to proceed with this remarkable HD restoration of STNG's first season, and heard of the amount of difficulty, complexity and cost that would be involved - and how much they would therefore ultimately have to charge for a season's set - I had my doubts as to whether or not it would be worth the cost to consumers, especially those who have already purchased one of the original dvd sets.
But if you're still "on the fence" about it, by all means buy this disc The truly astute observer will notice on this disc that CBS Television Distribution has decided to - during its final credit title "card" at the end of each episode - alternate between the original and very well known Paramount Television music track and CBS Television Distribution's original music track.
Next Generation fully restored episodes "Where No One Has Gone Before" and "Datalore" will be presented along with new documentary footage of cast, crew, and the high definition restoration process.

I was very excited when I found out that Star Trek: The Next Generation was being converted into blu-ray, and even more so when they revealed how meticulous the conversion will be. It includes three episodes - Encounter at Farpoint, Sins of the Father, and Inner Light - but it's worth noting that you're actually getting four since Farpoint is a two-parter. Encounter at Farpoint obviously isn't one of the strongest TNG episodes, but watching it again after quite a long time made me realise just how big a foundation this episode built for the characters and story direction we would all come to love over the following seven seasons.
Sure, the pacing is a bit scatter-brain and the premise is very TOS-esque, but otherwise it's a joy to watch just for the memories it invokes. Sins of the Father is, in my opinion, the strongest of the three. TNG did so well to turn the Klingon Empire from pantomime villains to a fully fleshed Alpha Quadrant species and this episode is just one example of it.
Picard and Worf always had their best moments in these episodes, and there a fair few tear-jerkers here. Personally, I did find it emotionally devastating the first time around, but it isn't one that I would choose to watch again and again. The clarity of the image, vibrancy of the colours and quality of the special effects are all top notch. Sure, there are a few problems now and then, such as a little over-saturation of colour, some graining and blurring particularly on Farpoint episode , but that doesn't prevent this release standing lightyears above the standard definition episodes we normally watch.
The video also allows you to spot intricate details that you won't be able to see normally, and some weaker elements which are less welcome for example, Data's very obvious stunt double on the holodeck in Farpoint.

He said that many young people who come into his shop want to experience records in a completely different way. Even with the popular interest in vinyl, Roberti wasn't sure the resurgence is here to stay. Still, "the notion that a big analog disc can exist in is kind of amazing to me. Perry of The Stereo Times believes vinyl is on an upward trend. It's really special in that regard," Perry said. Vinyl is more special to some than others, with some deep-pocketed fans shelling out thousands for vintage records.
