January 23rd, 2012 by Marc Comments

With the announcement of Star Trejk: The Next Generation on blu-ray late last year, many got excited, especially after the superb work on the Original Series remasters and it seems the excitement was well earned.

More comparison photos have emerged for the upcoming Blu-ray ‘sampler’ release of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” via TrekCore has released more comparisons from the previous DVD releases and the new Blu-ray remasters and my-oh-my… it shows that they went back to the original film reels for scanning, re-editing and re-doing the visual effects as the detail is beautiful.

The cast and crew of the seriees who have spoken about the remastering have confirmed that while most of the shots are directly cleaned up originals, there are a few that just weren’t up to scratch and have been replaced with new all-cgi shots.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
