It DOES have a bearing on the conversation at hand. And whether they burn them or not, doesn't matter. What matters is that they continue to be available. Whether or not they exist somewhere doesn't matter, whether they can be watched can. Imagine if they make CGI-enhanced version of the Mona Lisa, and the museum that owns it stuffs the real one down in the basement somewhere.
Really, that's the best argument you could make? Comparing digital files that can exist near infinitely to a one off painting in a basement?

Anyways, no one has a natural right to be able to buy a TV show-- or anything else for that matter. Hell, retailers put out "limited editions" all the time, DVDs or otherwise. It's hardly uncommon, certainly not to Star Trek.

Right, and economics is the only thing that matters anywhere.

Well, if that's the case, we should MAKE SURE there is an economic incentive, aka: if they're not on there, we won't buy them.
Yes, economics is the only thing that matters. That's how I know the originals won't be included, it's bad business. Unlike TOS-R, they'd be duplicating content currently available that they're already trying to sell you. They'd be going out of their way to provide material that doesn't meet the standards of the Bluray format (it wont sell the release). And they'd be doing it at an unreasonable expense to themselves and consumers, as it would take 2-3 extra discs per season to be able to include them.
