Hi guys,

Anyone has information on the aspect ratio for the Star Trek Next Generation complete series collection discs?

I have read that the blu-ray is widescreen, and the dvd is full frame.  

I wanted to know if there is any distortion on the widescreen disc, being that they were filmed, as far as I know for a full frame format originally.

Any insight is appreciated.

That widescreen/full frame scam is what turned me off SCRUBS.

I have all of TNG on Blu-Ray, from the original season releases.  They are not widescreen.

The screencaps on TREKCore indicate that the Blu-Rays present the episodes in their original/proper 4:3 aspect ratio. 

I've seen the episodes cropped for widescreen TVs on BBC America and such, but a lot of TV channels tend to do that with older shows and movies, which is annoying.

Thanks, guys.

It's noted that the DVDs are full frame, so I guess I'll get that, unless the Blu-Ray, when I go into a store, specifically states what Steve said.  It could be that these versions are repackaged and tinkered with.

Thanks, again.
