^ What he said.
My point was that the original versions need to be preserved on Blu-ray and whatever medium they later decide to re-release Trek on. Saying "they're available now" is insufficient. They're available on VHS too. But how long will it be before no one has a VHS player in their homes anymore? And how long has it been since Paramount actually manufactured new VHS copies of the episodes?
Having had the originals available at one time in an obsolete format is insufficient. They need to be available in a format that is currently being sold and that most people are able to utilize.
