The forthcoming release of Star Trek: The Next Generation on Blu-Ray really gets our nerd juices flowing, and some übernerds (we say that with respect and a little bit of jealousy) have gone through scene by scene and taken note of a bunch of the cool new stuff that you can see in the remastered episodes that you couldn't see before. For example, did you know that there's a little shout-out to Star Wars hidden in one of the props in Encounter at Far Point? Yeah, neither did anyone else, but thanks to the magic of high-res Blu-Ray, we can see it now.
