First off, as you can see… I have put up a new theme! It was made by Tathy of Night & Day Designs, and I hope you like it as much as I do 😀
Second, the photos pages have moved into the series galleries – so TOS photos are now in the TOS gallery, TNG photos in the TNG gallery and DS9 photos in the DS9 gallery.
Third, I’m really getting excited about that TNG Bluray sampler disc Star Trek: The Next Generation — The Next Level. The comparisons I’ve been looking at TrekCore, even though not HD, show just how big an improvement it will be in image quality. The last time I rewatched season 1, I was really disgusted how awful the DVD image looked 🙁 January 31st can’t get here fast enough! The sampler will hold the pilot “The Encounter At Farpoint”, and 2 other episodes: “Sins of the Father” and “The Inner Light”, with season release following later. I’m not clear on though – are they going to release season by season, or one big seven 7 box? I thought first I heard only big seven season box, but I might be remembering wrong.
The reboot gallery is closed for a few hours while I convert it to Coppermine. It’s open again!
And I just realized that the link to the 2009 reboot is and has been missing from the navigation for who knows how long! *head desk* Sorry!
This news came out last week:
You’ve heard the rumors, and now StarTrek.com can officially confirm it: Star Trek: The Next Generation will be released in high-definition Blu-ray, starting in January with a sampler of several popular episodes, followed by a season-one set to be released later on in 2012, and subsequent seasons beaming down after that. Each of the 178 episodes spanning The Next Generation‘s seven seasons will be transferred to true high-definition 1080p for release in the Blu-ray format.

This means I’m halting my TNG screencapping right now. There’s no point in continuing capping from DVD now, only to have to recap from Bluray next year. Because I know I’ll be capping the TNG blurays as soon as humanly possible.
I’m not entirely sure what to do right now. While waiting for the TNG blurays. I had a vague plan that first TNG, then DS9, and then selected episodes from VOY and then ENT at some point. But surely DS9 will follow TOS and TNG to Bluray at some point? But will it happen in 2-3 years, or a decade from now? Is there a point in starting to cap DS9 from DVD now?
Ugh. Hard question. Opinions?
