I watched the EXTENDED CUT of NexGen's "Measure of a Man".

While I have had NexGen on Blu ray for a couple of years now, I have barely watched any of the bonus material, so this was a wonderful experience.

The extended cut is about 13 minutes longer than the original aired version, featuring some nice character beats.  It has of course been all remaster HD and looks gorgeous.

The additional material only enhances and empowers this brilliant episode to greater heights.  I can easily say this is for me the BEST single episode of the entire Next Generation run and a perfect encapsulation of what Star Trek is, can and should be.

I've been trying to decide if I want to drop the money on a Blu-ray set of TNG when I already have the whole series on DVD but an extended edition of my favorite episode is almost worth the price alone.

The picture quality upgrade is also massive. They intensively remastered the series from the original film elements, even digitally recompositing shots that had originally been shot on film but composited on videotape.

Yeah, it's gorgeous. It's too bad DS9 and VOY won't be getting the same treatment. I'm looking forward to seeing a little bit of upgraded effects in the upcoming What We Left Behind documentary.

STAR TREK DEEP SPACE NINE:  WHAT WE LEFT BEHIND DOCUMENTARY



Watched last night.

Now I have watched many, many, many Star Trek docs over the decades, and this is easily one of the most enjoyable ones I have had the pleasure to view.  The makers take a fresh approach, so it is not simply 'talking heads' the entire time.... but I will not divulge anything except that from the very opening  sequence is unexpected, quirky, sweet, hilarious and completely and uniquely DS9.   I pretty much smiled through the whole doc.

The interviews are interesting and insightful.  The Writer's Room, where they break down the first episode for Season Eight, is very enjoyable -- I now totally want to see that episode!!!   And the HD remastering of the original DS9 footage, lives up to high standard set by previous remastering of TOS and TNG, and is orgasmically gorgeous!  Come on CBS/Paramount!!!  Remaster this epic already!!!  lol

My only nitpick is the documentary could have been and should have longer.  Much longer.  So much did not even get discussed or mentioned.  Though my understanding is lots was cut for running time and may be included on the Blu Ray as Bonus Material.

Fantastically fun and fresh.   Highly recommended.

The Orville wrapped up season two last week... I found it to be a very fun ride.

It is sort like a warm, comfy, safe blanket.... It is 90's style Star Trek.... suddenly I am in my twenties again...lol



While I don't know if I would buy the series, I would seriously consider purchasing the series music soundtrack as it is brilliant.  So many amazing epic riffs of Trek, Star Wars and other sci-fi classics.  In fact, it would probably make an excellent resource for fan editing.

Loved the season finale! That ice moon chase was incredible for a TV show. I've only seen the last two episodes of this but I'm praying to the space show gods that they make more.

A little tease from the Writer's Room segment of the DS9 doc...
