With Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s second season Blu-Ray release less than 2 months away, we take a look at the epic trailer that CBS have released for Season 2.

The trailer was first seen as a special bonus feature on the 1st Season Blu-Ray release and showcases scenes from several Season 2 episodes including ‘The Child‘, ‘Where Silence Has Lease‘, ‘The Measure of a Man‘, ‘Contagion‘, ‘Time Squared‘, as well as the epic fan favorite which introduces us to the Borg, ‘Q Who‘. The trailer also features a sneak preview of some of the bonus features which will be included on the Season 2 set, namely a roundtable discussion featuring the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation!

Watch the trailer below in full 1080p high definition!

CBS has – without a doubt – managed to produce one of the most epic trailers for a Star Trek DVD/Blu-Ray release yet. Even though many fans will have seen these episodes dozens of times before, they manage to come across as fresh, exciting and new again after 25 years.

We’ve got a selection of HD-screencaps from the trailer available below:

    This remastering is great! It really adds to the gravitas of each episode. Hope we can get text trivia and background info on future releases.

    • trekcore

      The Okudas’ text commentaries were awesome on the DVDs, sadly they are so time consuming… I spoke to them about that in an interview earlier this year: http://tng.trekcore.com/bluray/okuda1.html

      • Mike C.

        Please install the texts and other features that
        play during key episodes. Those make re-watching so much better. At
        least pilots, cliffhangers and finale! Thanks!!

    Who do we write/call/tweet/fax to for DS9 on Blu-ray? I know that buying TNG sets are the ultimate indicator, but what else can we do?

    • trekcore

      Leave comments here or any other popular Star Trek forums… CBS are reading them 🙂

    • Just relax, it’ll happen in due time.

  • Ashley Williams

    aww I was hoping for something new/additional this is the exact same trailer on the S1 disks.

    PS: DS9, VGR, and ENT on blu-ray would be awesome!

    • trekcore

      There is another trailer, but that’s only being shown at conventions! We’ll be reporting from Star Trek: London in a couple of weeks, so if we see it there we’ll let you all know!!

    • Ashley Williams

      and if anyone that owns these is listening/reading: I would also like buffy, charmed, alias and xena on blu-ray. (its worth a shot)

  • Ivan Ofitserov

    Can’t help but notice that some shots are over DNR-ed, and some are too grainy. I wonder if this is only temp footage mostly?

    • Chris Jay

      DNR-ed?

      • Ivan Ofitserov

        Heavy grain reduction. Like this shot http://tng.trekcore.com/bluray/s2trailer/S2Trailer04.jpg

        • Oh geez I hope the final product doesn’t look like that.

          I bet that was a really grainy shot with all the layers due to effects but the DNR makes everything look plastic.

        • archer923

          Don’t worry. It’s a heavy effects shot. It happens sometimes.

        • Data

          What’s the problem with this shot??? It looks just amazing!!!!

    • archer923

      Lighting can cause different levels of grain.

  • Eric

    CBS are reading the comments here?! So than read this: I JUST LOVE WHAT YOU ARE DOING WITH MY FAVORITE SHOW TNG, AND BESIDE THE BIRTH OF MY SON AND THE LOVE FOR MY WHOLE FAMILY, THIS REALLY IS THE GREATEST AND MOST BELOVED THING OF MY WHOLE LIFE!!! INFINITELY THANKS FOR THAT FROM ERIC FROM GERMANY!!!!!!!!!

  • Xavier_Storma

    Look at that beautiful Enterprise-D model… and consider how ugly that 4 foot Enterprise looked like. Spoiled the feminine, organic look of this epic, timeless ship.
    CBS… you did it on the sampler BD once. REPLACE THE 4 FOOTER with CGI! And to please the hardcore (don’t change that) fans: Give us the option to choose between new CGIed Enterprise (keeping all the angles and perspectives and illumination, just changing the model to the corrected, original form) and the old IMHO damn ugly, continuity-devastating old 4 foot model shots.
    It’s not even that much work, and if you want… I can set up the scenes for you, if you send me the CGI model of the ship. I will do it for free, and I know many other people who would do that, too!

    Thank you for the beautiful BD sets, and please… at least consider this option!

    • Chris Jay

      The only reason the original is replaced by CG, is if the original negatives can’t be found

      • Xavier_Storma

        So… if someone broke into that archive and destroyed the 4 footer footage… 😉 😛 😀

        Just kidding… I think that they at least should consider it. And it is not as much work as many think. In the composing process they would just have to replace the Enterprise frames, and leave everything else like it was. Just like they do now with the planets!

        • archer923

          So what if I said I hate the 6 foot model. Should that be changed now too? That’s how you’re overreacting to the 4 foot mode.

          • Xavier_Storma

            Dear archer9234
            How can you hate the original design? The canon design, since it appeared again in GENERATIONS.

            The latest TITANIC BD release removed errors from several frames. I would see replacing the 4 foot model as error correction.

          • archer923

            I was making a point. I don’t hate the 6 footer. But you hate the 4 footer. And ignore people who want things left alone. The 4 foot model is not an error. It was a time saving measure. Removing it just because it looks different from the 6 foot. Doesn’t make it right.

          • Xavier_Storma

            No I don’t… I would prefere to have both versions aboard! 🙂
            The original model footage, and the same scenes recreated with the corrected CGI model!

        • Justin Olson

          On the contrary, it’s a hell of a lot of work to make it look good! Sure, fans could do it (and have done it) but the results never look satisfactory in my humble opinion — indeed, I don’t even like the handful of replaced shots CBS Digital did! The crucial difference, of course, is that they did it out of necessity (though I think they should have replaced the shots they eventually located).

          I for one would not appreciate having the release dates pushed back just to cater to a minority of fans who can’t stand the 4-foot miniature. The differences are so insignificant, so literally miniscule to most of us that it would be a complete waste of resources. And this is coming from someone who also prefers the look of the 6-foot miniature.

          My advice is, if it truly bothers you that much, do the shots by yourself, for yourself (i.e. edit together your own CGI enhanced episodes like Chris Jay is doing). Replacing all the shots of the 4-foot miniature in seasons 3-7 is beyond the scope of this project.

          • Data

            That’s kind of what I think as well!! The differences are much to miniature to justify a entire replacement! I also prefer the 6 footer but I’m very much ok with the 4 footer too! In many shots from season 3-7 it even looks very great! If you need an explanation in our insight tng world for the differences, just blame the ever changing light in space 😉 that’s what I do too in my tng dream world 🙂 By the way MANY people don’t even think there has been different models anyway! For most people it’s subliminal just a different angle, or light, or view distance..! I also know of many people that think thats all cgi, not models, cause it actually don’t really looks like models but like high end cgi!! Even I thought years ago I would bee great cgi until I saw the making offs on DVD! 🙂

        • Esmeralda

          I agree.
          I hate 4 foot model.
          CGI 6 foot model looks great in scenes where it is used.
          It look much better than 4 foot model.

          CBS D at least give us an option to toggle between 4 foot model and 6 foot CGI model on Blu-Ray. 🙁

    • Data

      I took a look at your link and it looked really good! But it don’t look real and the difference between the 4 footer and cgi enterprise there in thermos of shape seems not big enough to justify a cgi replacement! The only replacement justified would be to shoot new scenes with the real 6 foot model! But I think the 4 foot will do very well after the remastering!!

    • Ashley Williams

      that CG isn’t that great. The one they are already using when called for looks WAY better. Personally I wouldn’t mind if they used it to reproduce everything to keep it consistent.

  • Xendawr

    Its so awesome what they are doing for this show! Love it. That cast reunion looks cool too.

    Its just too bad they can’t edit out Dr. Pulaski out of season two… :p

  • hypnotoad72

    New or not, it’s cool to watch. and the actual episodes will be much cooler; even season 1, bad as it often was, feels more lively thanks to these excellent remastering treatments accorded them.

    Any word if any footage from season 2 was lost, or has every piece of film been recovered? (I read all of season 3 was found, yay!, and if such moments are so few that really shows how much care was put into storing all of the original film elements after the episodes were first made… just think, what if they trashed the film elements instead of preserving them? )

    • Chris Jay

      I believe all of Season 2 was found too… I’ll ask the Okuda’s.

  • Data

    I just find that the stars in the opening shot of the HD “Inner Light” are looking to colorful and unrealistic!!!! I know they are colorful in the original too but in HD it jumps out! Being faithful to the original is great but in standard def it don’t jumps heavy out like that even if it’s actually similar colorful!! In HD on a big screen it looks like a cartoon with these heavy color stars!! So please CBS, get that right for the season releases and reduce the color of these stars or fix it anyhow, but JUST DO IT PLEASE!!!!!

    • Chris Jay

      Well, aside from the Enterprise which is CG, since I guess the original elements for that shot couldn’t be found at the time, but the “warp star” element is from the original negatives, to my knowledge…

      • Data

        Really? It looks like new CG!! But anyway, whatever it is, the stars looks like a cartoon and have to be fixed!!!!

        • Chris Jay

          They stand out more because they’ve been re-scanned, that’s how they would’ve looked then if they had the ability to get that information off the film.

        • Justin Olson

          It was accomplished using slit-scan photography — the same process used by Douglas Trumbull on the first motion picture:

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kj178APgdno&feature=share&list=PL772A4A0F83E6AB97

          In my opinion, there’s absolutely no good reason to change it!

        • archer923

          TNG’s stars have always been bright rainbow colors. The reason why you aren’t use to them was because DS9 and VGR changed the design to a more plain white streak. TNG’s tape masters are in far more worse shape than the other two shows are. So you couldn’t really see they where rainbows. Unless you looked really closely.

          It’s just like some people could see the moving people in the windows or not (opening title). I was able to see them since day one. Even on bad VHS tapes. But a lot of people never saw them, till the bluray set.

  • Mike C.

    Will this set go down in price like season 1? This season even has less episodes. Anyone know? Thanks.
