The Next Generation has now been confirmed for remastering to HD. There will be a test disk released before Christmas with Encounter at Farpoint, the Inner Light and Sins of the Father showcasing the Blu Rays. They have gone back to the film negatives, and built the show back up. All of the effects are being upgraded. This is a huge job, but Paramount will likely see the long term benefits of this in terms of being able to sell the show for years to come.

Here is a trailer

And here is a comparison shot of the new effects vs the old ones. It looks wonderful. Just wish they would release Best of Both Worlds. But alas, who can blame them for not.

Shiny.

I've been watching Series Two of TNG it's far more hit and miss than I recall, though admittedly I haven't watched it in more than a decade. Still I know in my heart and head it get's better in later Series.

It sounds like they are going to try and do a mix of cleaned up model shots (those filmed in film) and CGI enhancement where needed (Matte paintings for example)

Will be curious to see how this does.

Oooo, I'm rather looking forward to this. So excited in fact, that I shall celebrate with the adding of Fez to Vulcan.

By the by Shatners Star Trek Memories, and Star Trek Movie Memories are a blast to read. Really interesting because he brings together not only his own feelings, but others contribute to it as well.

Seth MacFarlane wants to produce a new Trek series and you know what? I think he'd be awesome as it's clear he's a massive Trek fan.

Remember the episode Conspiracy? Whatever happened to those parasites, seeing as at the end of the ep its hinted that they sent a beacon to their home planet. It was kindof a build to nothing.

There are plenty of Trek fans with no talent out there and I don't think anyone would think their fantasy Trek shows would be awesome. What makes him so special?

They got into trouble with that episode, due to the effects. They left it alone, and re-built the concept into the Borg plotline.

Yeah I don't really pay attention to the novels tbh. As far as I'm concerned if it ain't on the small or big screen then its not cannon, the novels and comics are superfluous to me.

They were going to do a sequel to it but the spisode caused to much contreversy with the effects and the dark nature of the story. Shame its a good ep and I would have loved to have seen a sequel.

the recent ds9 novels have been excellent.
they have taken the characters on some interesting arcs, almost like having another season of the show to enjoy post s7 finale.

Just realised that the ep "Starship Mine" is basically Die Hard with Jean-Luc as McLane.

And X episode of the TOS is a riff on film Y, or whatever costumes and sets they could find on the backlot that week.

We know, we were just playing.

Besides I love that bit in Die Hard where McClane finds his beloved saddle.

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® TO BE AVAILABLE IN HIGH-DEFINITION FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER FOR ITS 25TH ANNIVERSARY

Star Trek: The Next Generation® – The Next Level Blu-ray Disc™ Will Be Released On January 31, 2012

Complete First Season Blu-ray Available Later in 2012

LOS ANGELES – The beloved series STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® will be transferred to high definition for the first time ever and released on Blu-ray™, it was announced today by Ken Ross, Executive Vice President and General Manager of CBS Home Entertainment.

All 178 episodes from seven seasons will be transferred to true high-definition 1080p for release on Blu-ray and eventual runs on television and digital platforms both domestically and internationally.

“Fans have been clamoring for a high-definition release of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® for years,” said Ross. “Transferring the series to high-definition presented difficult technical challenges, but our team has come up with a process to create true 1080p HD masters with true HD visual effects. We can’t wait to show fans how pristine the series looks and sounds with our upcoming Blu-ray releases.”

Transferring STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® to high-definition presented numerous challenges – The series was originally shot on film and then transferred to videotape, which was used to edit episodes together. In order to create true HD masters, CBS is going back to the original uncut film negative – all 25,000 plus film reels of it – and cutting the episodes together exactly the way they originally aired. The visual effects were all shot on film and will be painstakingly recompositioned, not upconverted from videotape. The newly cut film will then be transferred to true high-definition with 7.1 DTS Master Audio. Denise and Mike Okuda are consulting on the project.

While the first full season won’t be available until later in 2012, CBS Home Entertainment is releasing STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® – THE NEXT LEVEL, a single Blu-ray disc to give fans a taste of the series in HD, on January 31, 2012. The disc will include the feature-length pilot – “Encounter at Farpoint” – as well as two more “fan favorite” episodes, “The Inner Light” (Season 5) and “Sins of the Father” (Season 3). The single disc will be available for a suggested retail price of $21.99.

One of the most popular series in the STAR TREK franchise, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2012. It premiered in first-run syndication during the week of September 28, 1987 and ran through 1994.

Set in the 24th century on the Starship Enterprise, about 100 years after the original STAR TREK series took place, the series starred Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Jonathan Frakes as Commander William T. Riker, LeVar Burton as Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge, Marina Sirtis as Counselor Deanna Troi, Brent Spiner as Lt. Commander Data, Michael Dorn as Lieutenant Worf, Gates McFadden as Dr. Beverly Crusher and Wil Wheaton as her son Wesley Crusher.

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION® won numerous accolades, including 18 Emmy® awards, and was the first – and only – syndicated television show to be nominated for the Emmy® for Outstanding Drama Series for its seventh season. It was also ranked #46 on TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time list in 2002.

Anyone know how they reacted in NI to Data's "the Irish reunification in 20-somethingorother" line? Wonder if the line got taken out as to not cause any shit.
