Star Trek: The Next Generation On Blu-ray & Remastered?
The rumor-mill seems to think so. We've been waiting for this since we first got wind of The Original Series being remastered and released in high-def. Since Next Gen was originally shot on film and post production's output for the final episodes were on video, the special effects throughout the series would need to be remastered before the show could ever make it to blu-ray. According to The Digital Bits secret stash of comic-con sources, CBS is indeed working on a remastered version of the series, with a 4 episode demo disc that might be available to fans soon.
Multiple sources The Digital Bits spoke with at Comic-Con have also confirmed their report from earlier this year that CBS is hard at work on Star Trek: The Next Generation - Remastered for Blu-ray release starting sometime in 2012. The latest word is that 4 test episodes are currently being worked on for release as a sampler/demo BD disc of the project, and that sampler disc will somehow be available to fans by the end of this year.

You can put us down for a copy... I mean, who wouldn't want to see "Yesterdays Enterprise" or "Cause & Effect" with updated visual effects? BTW, if CBS wants to skip "Shades of Gray" and "Code of Honor", we would completely understand. If you're a fan of either of those episodes, leave us a comment below. Maybe you can persuade us with your compelling arguments...
