You heard right, the epic saga Star Trek The Next Generation is now being converted to HD for release on Blu-Ray. Levar Burton even confirmed that the conversion process was going really well and the new footage from TNG looks great.
Supposedly the original transfer of the episodes to DVD did not go well and the pilot episode “Encounter at Farpoint” had washed out colors and looked horrible. The process that CBS Paramount is using should display a massive upgrade from the DVD version and be well worth the wait. I hope that they also release the HD versions to replace the current episodes that are available on Netflix.
CBS Paramount will release the first four episodes in HD in a Blu-Ray sampler set to be released later this year.
