I don't see them doing a Fan Collective. Re-mastering TNG would be a serious project, and an important part of the revenues from it would be television rebroadcasts. That can't be done with only a handful of episodes.
But TNG has seven seasons. That's hundreds of episodes. Way more work, and time, than TOS-R. It may not be worth the effort.
It probably isn't.

Blu Ray is still very much a niche format and the DVDs have hit rock-bottom price now. A remastering project is very unlikely, and as others have pointed out, they would need to know they will get some significant revenue from HD re-runs.

There is a heck of a lot more work involved than with the remastered TOS, both per episode and in the number of episodes, for potentially far less gain (no new movie to make the characters popular again).
