Sins of the Father – Cut 4

Sins of the FatherThese tapes are part of my private collection and I’m happy to share them here. They were won in an auction dedicated to Star Trek.

This is the seventeenth Star Trek TNG episode from Season 3. It is called Sins of the Father and was first aired in 1990. What makes this video special is that it is a non-public, preliminary cuts (cut 4) of the episode. It lacks music and special effects, the voice-over is not done properly, you can sometimes hear the crew in the background, etc…

The tape is labeled “#165 – Cut 6 – 2.5.90” and was more than 20 years old when it was digitized. I got the best VCR I could find on eBay and recorded the video as the highest bitrate possible. I then remastered the audio & video to improve the overall quality without damaging/modifying the original content. Of course, the source material is still an old VHS, which has half the resolution of a DVD at its best, so don’t expect anything close to the new hi-res BD releases. In fact, expect just the opposite. So, if you’re a trekkie and want to see special versions of a TNG episode you’ve never seen before.
