I'm curious; if they did release it on Blu-Ray, would there be any quality improvements to the original material? IIRC, one of the reasons they were able to do TOS on HD-DVD and get quality improvement was that they originally shot the material on film, instead of video tape which is what is normally used for tv shows.
All Star Trek shows, and every dramatic show you can think of, was filmed on film. Videotape traditionally was only used for things like soap operas and sitcoms (although modern American sitcoms use film now).
