I've been enjoying TNG recently on my newly acquired big (to me) tv and worrying about the actual original source for this stuff.
I knew the effects were video-based, but it was shot on 35mm film, yes?
Crossing my fingers for an eventual release. I agree all the effects will have to be redone. But what a masterpiece. TV shows rarely get better than TNG.
I was thinking there is kind of a "lost zone" for TV shows between the decline of film to videotape (or video just used for cheap shows) to the current usage of HD for everything... those shows in between, mostly from the 1980s. They might be doomed to look like crap on Blu-Ray.
