Re: DS9 should get Remastered

That is what was accomplished with the TOS-R Blu-ray [the shots without ANY visual effects].
Let me just say that I understand the argument that TNG, DS9, and VOY were edited into complete form on videotape, ergo those are the original versions. I understand that argument. With TOS, of course, the original completed, edited episodes existed in film form, so they could do HD transfers of the original versions. To preserve the original TNG and DS9 film, they'll have to essentially make new versions of the episodes. I get that that makes some people uncomfortable. My view is that we should preserve the film regardless, make those new edits, and as long as both original SD version and remastered HD version are available, everyone will be happy. But again, I understand the other side's argument that the SD edits on video are the original versions.

But the argument that too much detail is bad? W... T... F?
