Star Trek Novels Update!

As I have not posted anything on Star Trek novels lately like I used to I will give a brief summary of what has happened on this front. ***UPDATED*** Here is the cover of Starfleet Academy The Assassination Game. ***UPDATED*** ‘Starfleet Academy The Assassination Game’. First of all is the prospective release of the Young adult novel ‘Starfleet Academy The Assassination Game’ by Alan Gratz late June next month, I say prospective because even though it is highly expected by fans there...

TNG Blu-ray season 1 arriving July 23rd!

After the spectacular sample disc in January we have all been waiting for the news on when the first season of TNG would be released. Finally we have gotten the date, it’s the 23rd of July. Which is still some time away unfortunately but at least it’s coming. Expect the second season to be released during the 4th quarter. Alas there is one big problem, and that is the price tag. The retail price in the Uk is 50.99 which roughly translates...

Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray sampler disk Review!

Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray sampler disk Review!

Finally I have managed to get round writing a review on the Blu-ray sampler disk of the High-def transfer of Star Trek The Next Generation. This disk contains three episodes including the double episode Encounter at Farpoint, Sins of the Father and The Inner Light. The review of this disk is based on Encounter at Farpoint (the other two episodes will be reviewed during the coming week) and I must state that not only is the detail gorgeous but it puts the DVD transfer to...

The Next Generation Blu-ray season 1 trailer

Tomorrow the sampler disk of TNG will be released on Blu-ray, expect a review the day after. For now we will have to do with the first trailer of Season 1 which is to be released sometime this year (I expect in the spring), and I must say that the moving images look even better than the stills that have been released so far. The crispness is just awesome. From this trailer we can also deduce that CBS is making new bonus material to go with the...

TNG Season 1 box art + Sampler disk screencaps!

TNG Season 1 box art + Sampler disk screencaps!

Little more than a week stands in the way of seeing what TNG looks like on Blu-ray disk, some early reviews have come out and are certainly positive. Now, to keep the ball rolling Paramount has released the box art for the first season which as of yet has no release date. The classic retro look of the box art is certainly to my taste. As bonus I have included three more screen caps from the sampler disk, one of...

The Next Level - TNG HD transfer

Star Trek TNG HD transfer ‘The Next Level’ set for January 31st!

Trekmovie.com has managed to get two screenshots of the TNG HD transfer, the screens include side boxes because the series was shot in 4:3 ratio. I must say the colors are a vast improvement from the rather washed out colors of the DVD transfer. The increase in detailing is harder to see but is more noticeable in the trailer released a few weeks back. Still no firm release date for season 1 but this HD promo disk will arrive on...

New TNG sample disc comparison trailer

New TNG sample disc comparison trailer

Later this month the Star Trek The Next Generation sampler disk will be available for sale. As you know from earlier articles the original footage from TNG has been used to re-edit all episodes and has then been converted to Blu-ray playback, and a good thing too as the above picture is an example of just how fuzzy the DVD footage could be. The release of TNG season 1 is still slated for later in 2012. As for the trailer…

Star Trek The Next Generation high-res 1080p Press Release.

As already became clear last september Star Trek The Next Generation will finally be released on a high-resolution format. After the dreadful DVD release this is a godsend. The series will be digitized from the 25000 original reels and although the special effects won’t be redone ala TOS they will also be digitized from the original source. The previously announced sampler disc has episodes such ‘Encounter at Farpoint’ and ‘Inner Light’ will be released on Blu-ray on January 31st 2012. The real release of...

Why was Enterprise Canceled?

Why was Enterprise Canceled?

A few days ago Blastr.com hosted an interview with John Billingsley, who for years amused us with his character Dr Phlox on the last Star Trek show Enterprise. The show was sadly canceled after 4 seasons. In the interview the actor states that the bean counters killed of the show because they insisted on ever grander plots and action settings. He links this with viewers tuning out. Personally I agree with him on that issue, it was a problem that...
