In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the beginning of the first broadcast, Paramount owner CBS started to restore the episodes for an HD release on Blu-ray but also for future broadcasts and the online distribution. A simple conversion of the final cuts was impossible because they only were available on video in SD. Consequently, the original negatives were scanned in HD. In order to do so, more than 25,000 reels had to be dug up from the Paramount archieves and cleaned. Also because the original visual effects had been made for an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, the aspect ratio of the new HD versions remains unchanged. Some visual effects such as phaser shots and beaming processes have been re-created instead of converted. Furthermore, perspective goofs in space and misguided shadows have been corrected and so have some paintings.

This is a comparison between the Original Version and the Remastered Version.

In order to keep it simple, repeated effects will be illustrated only once.

Reginald „Reg“ Barclay works as an engineer on the Enterprise. Among his colleagues he is not too popular and some even ask for him to be shifted. The introverted and shy Barclay rather spends his time on the Holodeck where he can live in his own phantasy world. There he can be a great hero. Suddenly, the Enterprise cannot be controlled anymore and there are disturbances. Ship and crew are in great danger. Even Geordi is unable to find the reason for the malfunction. Suddenly, „Reg“ Barclay has an idea, yet the time is running out…
