For the first time ever, you can experience some of the show’s most important and beloved episodes in glorious 1080p high definition, with true high definition visual effects and digitally re-mastered 7.1 sound--or with the original audio. You’ll witness new picture detail and depth you haven’t seen before, and enjoy spectacular visual effects that have been painstakingly re-created from the original film elements--definitely not up-converted from videotape. This “taste of tng” is a glimpse of what the upcoming complete season Blu-ray releases of The Next Generation will be like, and it will transport you to the next level.

Having just finished watching these sampler episodes I have to concur with the other reviews. Simply astonishing. You are simply not prepared for the quality of picture and sound or viewing experience. They are like having Motion pictures at 45 minutes. Thankfully they are in the proper 4/3 academy ratio in which they were shot. Why would you want them in widescreen. You would have to loose serious information to do that. The dire "World at War" anyone?
The effects upgrades are amazing and where the effects have been changed they enhance the experience. It's to be expected as a lot of effects simply couldn't be upgraded to HD as they were done on videotape.
I didn't even notice the 13 seconds of SD footage in "Sins of the Father" such was the very high standard of conversion on that missing piece of footage.
The freshness of the episodes is amazing. They look as they were shot today not 25 years ago. As one reviewer has already said, the preorder for all the seasons is a day one purchase.

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. This sample gives you a taste of what the brilliant Okudas, and everyone else at CBS/Paramount, are capable of doing. 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.

THE EPISODES:

First, a quick word on the episodes. 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. Finally, there's Inner Light, which tends to be one of the most lauded TNG stories. 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 VIDEO:

Wow, there just aren't enough words to describe the video quality of the episodes... amazing, phenomenal, incredible and mind-blowing would be just a few possibilities.

This is in reply to all the "It's not fair, it doesn't fill my TV... why do I have these black borders at the sides?" people:

The ratio on the Blu-ray discs is the same as it ever was for Star Trek: The Next Generation. Same as it was shot in, same as it was broadcast in, same as it was presented on VHS and the same as it was presented on DVD. Why on earth some people expect Blu-ray to magically alter this situation is beyond me, but you only have to note the two and one star reviews to see they are. The series was filmed in 4:3, a quarter of a century ago, long before anyone envisaged that we'd all have 16:9 widescreen TV's in our homes in the future. "But I could make my Star Trek TNG DVD's play in widescreen", I hear you cry. No, actually you couldn't. What you were doing was stretching or zooming the image to fill your widescreen TV. This is fake widescreen, and something purists never do, but was quite easy to achieve with a standard definition DVD, on a standard definition DVD player, over a standard definition connection. This is HD though, and stretching or faking widescreen is not really an option. "Why?", I hear you cry. Well, HDTV resolutions are either 720p or 1080i/p... 1280x720 or 1920x1080. These are 16:9 'widescreen' resolutions by default. This means that your Blu-ray player HAS to display everything as a 16:9 image. In the case of films and TV shows shot and framed for cinema or 16:9 broadcast, it will fill your widescreen TV. Sometimes with small black borders at the top and bottom if they have chosen to present the original cinematic ratio. Now, when they are presenting a 4:3 image on HD Blu-ray... this same rule applies. It HAS to be displayed as part of a 16:9 frame.

This Blu Ray gives a great glimpse into what the rest of the 7 series will be like when they are all fully restored over the next few years. Granted, The Inner Light and Sins of the Father don't have too many special effects to show off but they still look crystal clear and sound brilliantly (except for 13 seconds of Sins of the Father which were up-converted from video because at the time CBS had not found the original negatives, they have now and it will all be corrected in time for Season 3 release)

Both episodes of Encounter at Farpoint are on here, in this episode you see the biggest and best increase in quality. The first series suffered from a horrible red tint all over the place, well that has gone and all the colours are back the way they should be, very vibrant and not bleeding into each other, it looks like it was filmed just recently it looks that good.

The Next Generation was filmed in a 4:3 ratio, not 16:9 widescreen ratio, it has always been 4:3 and will always be 4:3, even the blu ray versions, there is no point in releasing these discs in 16:9 ratio because there simply is no picture to fill the gap as it was never filmed, so don't expect any of this to be in widescreen, however, it does not take away from the experience or disappoint.

Seeing the new intro for the first time is absolutely amazing, I was in awe, and still am in awe, at seeing how gorgeous the Enterprise looks in high definition, it's so clear you think you can reach out and touch it! The TNG theme is much better too, it is crystal clear and you can hear sounds and instruments that you could not hear before in the original, it's an amazing job.

The only downside to this Blu Ray is that now because it is so crystal clear on a large screen I can spot the stunt doubles haha. See if you can spot them in Encounter at Far Point
