Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

This Blu-ray sampler of Star Trek: The Next Generation offers three episodes that nicely display the sort of quality fans can expect from future, full season releases. The opening double bill episode "Encounter at Farpoint" is certainly the weakest of the bunch, as great as it may look. Blacks tend to be a bit murky and yield rather poor shadow detail. Generally, however, colors are stable and handsome; the three-color spectrum of uniforms -- red, light blue, and mustard -- enjoy more balance and authenticity than has ever been seen before in "TNG" home video or broadcast presentations. The neutral, light colors around the ship, including the leather seats on the bridge, also take on a very natural, welcoming shade. Fine detail is strong, but not quite extraordinary. The Worf makeup holds up very well under the scrutiny of high definition; there are no evident seams or signs that Michael Dorn is actually human, not Klingon. Facial detail is only fair, but creases in the leather seats, seams in the bridge's carpeting, and the texture of the uniforms are all nicely presented. The added clarity of the 1080p resolution allows for some sharper information that reveals small details even dedicated viewers might have missed before. For example, the drug dispensers on the 21st century soldiers who appear in the courtroom sequence (the same uniform worn briefly by Q on the Enterprise bridge) in "Farpoint" actually say "Army." Likewise, the restored Enterprise, seen in various exterior shots, sports some obviously green panels. "Farpoint" does retain a light grain structure, in addition to infrequent but obvious white speckles and a few instances of blocking, usually as seen on solid surfaces appearing in shadow.

Shot several years later and when the series had settled into its routine, "Sins of the Father" sees a slight, but noticeable, improvement over "Farpoint." The image is generally more stable and film-like. Grain remains, as do light speckles, but fine detail is a touch more crisp, colors are hair more natural, and clarity far more impressive. Whether in the bright Enterprise sets or the lower-light halls of Qo'noS, the improvements are often clear. It's simply a case of the episode reflecting all the visual goodness of "Farpoint" but with a little more in the way of the sort of results that fans were hoping for, subconsciously, maybe, engendering a renewal of the raw excitement that "Farpoint" had rightly or wrongly diminished, albeit only slightly diminished. This episode also features approximately thirteen seconds of "missing" footage that's presented here from upconverted video. The segment appears at roughly the 30:40 mark -- a scene on the bridge between Riker and Crusher -- and it's almost a good thing it was left in, if only as a brief comparison for just how amazing these episodes now look in high definition. The upconverted material is soft, undefined, and shockingly lacking in detail. Hopefully future season releases will offer more in-depth side-by-side comparisons as supplements, because this is a real eye opener (see screenshot #39 in this review for a look at this scene). Lastly. "The Inner Light" offers much of the same, even through its rather unique stylizations that see it take on an almost dreamlike appearance in its many Kataan-based sequences. Grain is perhaps a hair sharp throughout the episode while speckles are all but absent. This transfer does handles both uniform and set pieces nicely aboard the Enterprise while also revealing Kataan's unique clothes, structures, and natural elements with crisp, high definition ease. In short, these aren't the sort of transfers that make the show look like it was made yesterday -- because it wasn't -- but its handful of nitpicky faults aside, this is nothing short of an amazing revelation.


Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The good news is that all three episodes sound great. The "bad" news is that these DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack won't blow anyone away. Still, fans will appreciate the vast boost in clarity, spacing, and general immersion Paramount's DTS track provides. The title theme offers up superb clarity that allows listeners to pinpoint some of the finer little details within. It's a borderline revelation, featuring superb crispness and definition, even in the highest of notes. It also heavily engages the surrounds, almost to a fault, but there's no question that this is very much an immersive presentation of the show's hallmark theme music. Likewise, Picard's voiceover narration -- "to boldly go" and such -- is absolutely natural and focused in the center. The show itself comes alive like never before. The heavy, sometimes deep hum of the engines naturally surrounds the listener in most every scene aboard the Enterprise. The bleeps and blips scattered about the bridge enjoy good clarity and precise placement, ditto sliding turbo lift doors, the sum total effect practically transporting the listener to the set. Additional, episode-specific effects range from strong to weak. The chaotic courtroom scene in "Farpoint" features superb ambience and immersion, from a heavily clanking gong to the general din of the nearly violent crowd. Later in "Farpoint," explosions come across as rather shallow and lacking in power. External shots of the ship swooping around the galaxy, however, are quite involved and enjoyable. Dialogue is steady, perhaps a touch shallow in a handful of spots but generally accurate and crisp. Much like the video, things tighten up a bit beyond "Farpoint," though not by leaps and bounds. "The Inner Light," for instance, features wonderful planet ambience that takes full advantage of the 7.1 presentation, surrounding the listener in pleasing daytime and nighttime sound effects. This is certainly not a reference-quality presentation, but it is quite the marked improvement over the DVD soundtracks.
