There wouldn't be any point to upscaling TNG, DS9 or VOY and releasing them on Blu-Ray now. You will get the same result by simply playing your standard definition DVDs on a HDTV.
Agreed. Butó

The whole point of a Blu-Ray release is to have it really be in HD.
Depends on perspective. To you and me and perhaps most fans, you're absolutely right. But from the perspective of a studio, the "whole point" might be to sell more units, either to new buyers who don't own a particularly series on DVD yet and were waiting for the blu-ray, or for current owners who will re-purchase even with no advantage, just to have the "latest and greatest" (even if we're not them, we know they're out there...)
