In September, CBS officially announced Star Trek: The Next Generation would be remastered and re-released in high-definition on Blu-Ray. The first of the remastered offerings, a four-episode sampler disc entitled Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level, is scheduled to be released on January 31, 2012.
Complete seasons of TNG in HD will be released later in the year.
As we announced previously, the episodes on that sampler disc will include the two-part episode “Encounter at Farpoint” along with “Sins of the Father”, and “The Inner Light”.
However, there seems to be a small problem. On Monday, CBS sent a notice to retailers addressing a 13-second issue with “Sins of the Father”.
“Sins of the Father” – 13 seconds of the original film elements for this episode have not been located and thus have been upconverted from Standard Definition videotape.
Will 13 seconds have any bearing on whether you purchase Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level? Let us know in the comments.
