Undoubtedly one of the big highlights on the upcoming release of Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s second season on Blu-Ray is the unprecedented cast-reunion roundtable discussion chaired by Robert Meyer Burnett. The discussion is over one hour in length and brings together the entire principal cast of TNG: Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis and Wil Wheaton.

The official site today posted a brief 1-minute clip from the discussion where the actors discuss the remastering project and their reactions to seeing TNG on blu-ray.

In addition to the roundtable discussion, the Blu-Ray set features the continuation of Burnett and Roger Lay Jr.’s epic documentary chronicling the history of TNG with Making It So: Continuing The Next Generation. Also included are the much-talked about extended edition of “The Measure of a Man”, a whole range of new deleted scenes, gag-reels and other extras including LeVar Burton’s original TNG-based “Reading Rainbow” episode!

    I’m looking very much forward to the trailer of season 3, which I suppose will be on the second season set and maybe will find a way in the internet a few days before S2 will release…

    I’m really excited ! While the visual quality isn’t as good as with season 1, the bonus features are simply excellent !

      Especially the f/x being a mixed bag… the stills of the live action filming fare very well considering the stock they used at the time. “Contagion”, for example, had some very grainy scenes – especially in the Ikonian teleporter chamber. If the live-action stuff is restored and edited in right, I can handle a few iffy f/x scenes… from what I’ve seen, most of season 2’s f/x remastering is very passable. Apart from a couple defects, but I hope those get corrected…

    Wow, these blu rays are proving to be the definitive versions of TNG. I can’t wait to see season 2 and I think the stills look good now. Season 1 was so good and faithfully reconstructed from the origianl season 1 I don’t think I could go back to the DVDs. The SD picture of season 1 just doesn’t hold up on an HDTV but I can stop looking at the clips in HD. I recall how Picard’s uniform came across as purple in shots. Colour correction is so much better now. what are other doing with their DVDs, the ones I I am keeping are the signed ones

      The uniform colors still amaze me… check out this beautiful shot from WHERE SILENCE HAS LEASE to see all the uniform colors how they SHOULD be! http://tng.trekcore.com/bluray/images/wheresilence_trio_hd.jpg

        Much better than when Picard’s outfit had heliotrope affects due to the videotape mastering circa 1988! And the dull palette in general…

        DNR is definitely present on that still, but not excessively so. Enough grain is subdued but it doesn’t look blurry. Yay!
