Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Ultimately, the Blu-ray releases of these "Star Trek: The Next Generation" seasons will be defined by their video presentations. Lossless sound aside and any additional content merely added bonuses, the meat of these releases, and the highlighted element, will be the picture quality. Paramount teased audiences with the dazzling sampler disc referenced above, and the good news is that the stunning picture quality carries over to every season one episode. All warts are minor and all of the goodness magnified. This is a resplendent presentation, and with an entire season's worth of content to gaze upon rather than a select trio of episodes to critique, it's clear that Paramount's all-in with these titles, that the sampler disc was no fluke (not that anyone expected it to be), that TNG fans are in for a real treat, that the step up from the DVD releases is ridiculously high. Suddenly, even the worst episodes are worth watching all over again. All of the little details are clear (and in some cases a little too clear and well-defined), and all of the special effects dazzle in high definition. Indeed, as to the latter, this model of the Enterprise has never looked so good. It always appeared darker both inside and outside in Generations, leaving behind the ultra-bright episode stylings for a more toned-down, shadowy look that reinforced mood and hid some of the imperfections that are all-too-evident in some shots on this Blu-ray. The detail is so fine that audiences will catch bad and good alike: seams in carpet, wear and tear on the floor below the view screen, creases in the leather chairs around the bridge, the smooth texture and lines of the wraparound wooden tactical console station, and all sorts of fine little visual nuances around the ship's interior. On the outside, the level of detail on the Enterprise just might take fans' collective breaths away. Never has the ship been so clear, so well defined, so smooth, so even. The deflector array, before an identifiable shape and color but always a bit unstable and wavy around the edges, is now remarkably crisp and smooth, perfectly detailed and precisely colored.

The fun doesn't stop there. Whereas several of the Next Generation movies fared somewhat poorly on Blu-ray, offering smoothed over photography and uninspiring details on characters and uniforms, the first season features just the opposite. Audiences will appreciate the natural complexity of Data's makeup, the perfection of Worf's headpiece, the surprisingly cheap-looking (in HD) LaForge visor, and the facial makeup on the ladies. Natural lines offer a nice texture to faces, and the Starfleet uniforms appear complex and lifelike, so much so that little imperfections, frays, uneven lines, and all sorts of little touches are evident. Colors are fabulous as well. The mustard uniforms in particular appear much more balanced here, the bright red command uniforms are stable, and Wesley's wild clothes -- an orange sweater and the infamous light gray top with the rainbow shoulders -- hold up nicely. The natural, easy-on-the-eyes hues around the bridge look great, and the LCARS readouts offer stable and evenly-colored text and, of course, effortless sharpness. The detail does reveal the relative phoniness of props; close-ups of various consoles and devices disappoint a bit, but likely because they were really only intended to hold up on small low-def TVs, not the scrutiny of Blu-ray. Some planet side shots don't fare quite as well, though the usual collection of matte paintings and fake rocks are easy enough to spot. Grain is less pronounced on away missions as well; "Justice" appears smoother in that regard, but never is fine detailing betrayed. In fact, that world's grasses and structural details impress as much as anything aboard the Enterprise. Every episode is presented in a 1.33:1 aspect ratio, preserving the show's original broadcast integrity. The series looks at home in this format, with the film textures and revamped special effects both dazzling even with the black bars appearing on either side of HD displays. On the down side, there are a few lightly soft shots here and there, a touch of banding (evident, for example, along the background in the scene Data first unearths Lore), and a handful of white speckles, an example of the latter coming across LaForge's station on the bridge at the 3:37 mark of "The Last Outpost." Yet those are real nitpicks. Season One looks absolutely fantastic; every fan owes it himself or herself to see just how remarkable this looks. (Note: The episode "We'll Always Have Paris" contains two seconds of SD video unconverted to HD).


Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Fans dazzled by the wonderful video presentation might briefly overlook the audio presentation in the very early goings, but it doesn't take long to recognize the excellence of Paramount's wonderful DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack. This is a very full, even track, one that absolutely places the listener aboard the Enterprise, whether on her bridge, in the engineering section, or elsewhere. The track enjoys the steady, low engine rumble that blends into the environment like a white noise, but it's a crucial detail that truly defines the listening experience. Various bleeps and bloops are expertly placed around the bustling bridge, while the heavier pulsating rhythm of the warp engines in engineering float into the stage with good power and tight bass. Down on planets, light ambience -- whether the sound of vast emptiness on barren worlds or the bustle of a thriving alien city -- nicely penetrates the listening area and does well to place the listening audience into whatever environment each episode may have in store. Music plays with vigor and clarity, a combination that earns the presentation high marks. The opening title theme music is nothing short of a revelation; it's full, absolutely clear and clean, and totally immersive. The back channels carry a good bit of the load; there's no real distinguishing between the front and back, but the total sense of encirclement, combined with the swooshing of the Enterprise zipping from one corner of the stage to the next, proves an exhilarating combination. General music through the episodes enjoys pinpoint accuracy and smoothness. The track plays all of the major sound effects with wonderful precision and clarity. Phaser fire, torpedo launches, the jump to warp speed, and all sorts of episode-specific sound effects -- such as the Enterprise hurtling through space at before unachieved speeds in "Where No One Has Gone Before" -- are precisely placed in the stage and presented with the utmost definition. Hand phasers cut through the stage with regularity. Even the sounds of the holodeck, whether idyllic nature patterns or the bustling recreation of 1940s San Francisco in "The Big Goodbye," enjoy wonderful precision. Needless to say, dialogue is accurate, center-focused, and always intelligible. Don't overlook this soundtrack in favor of the video. This is everything the series' audio presentation should be, and then some.
