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.

The Enterprise's crew tries to save planet Bre’el IV from being destroyed. Suddenly, Q appears on the bridge and claims that all his supernatural abilities are gone. He reports that he was abandoned by his continuum and now is just a regular human being. Captain Picard does not believe him. After a bit of research Dr. Cursher discovers  that Q by now actually is a human being and thus lost all of his powers. Picard asks him for help in order to save Bre’el IV. A race against time unfolds. To top it all, the enterpirse is attacked by a being that wants to take revenge on Q.
