Distance to Farpoint station Edit

The article claims that the distance between this city and Farpoint Station "was never revealed" - however, looking at screenshots from the new Blu-Ray release of TNG (direct link, link to news in case first one won't work), it seems as if the Old city is visible on the left border of the shot, right next to Farpoint Station. Does anyone plan to buy that release soon, so that this can be confirmed and added to the article? -- Cid Highwind 17:14, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I probably will be. It looks dead cheap, which I didn't expect. I'm still on the lookout for a suitable software package that will play Blu-rays, however. I've got a BD drive, so the lack of software is really holding me back from being able to take Blu-ray screen caps. --Defiant 17:32, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

Look left

The Old Bandi City has always been right next to the starbase, that was why there was a pan to the left in the show, which produced this collage. I don't see any reason to wait for the end of the month when we have shots confirming that the distance was "revealed". - Archduk3 17:43, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
I suspected that may be the case. Thanks for the confirmation, AD3. --Defiant 18:16, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

That murky brown chaos to the left looks like the murky brown chaos surrounding the Station itself (which turn out to be green trees in the HD shot), though. I'm not sure how anyone could make out a town from that... but, whatever, I'll just remove the "never revealed" bit. -- Cid Highwind 18:31, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

When watching this on a 12in black and white screen as a child, I was able to deduce that panning to the right from those things that look like buildings to Farpoint between location shots of Zorn's office and the station meant that the old city must be what we started at. Since the show then pans back from the station later in the episode for the same effect, I don't know how anyone could have gotten the impression that the "murky brown chaos" wasn't suppose to be the old city. - Archduk3 18:54, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
And the same camera moves are in the HD version, included on the Next Level disc! --Defiant 18:13, January 27, 2012 (UTC)
