Therefore, remastering TNG, DS9 and VOY is a sensible long term investement. They just need to organise it well, which I believe is exactly what they have been trying to do. Of course it will be costly. But if they master it on 35mm this time, they will get many subsequent releases out of this. Thus, as the decades go by they will reap the dividends. Star Trek has done this so many times over the course of its history. Surely, we haven't seen the end of it yet?
Agreed..doing it now can future proof the series so its taken care of once and for all. It'll take 4-5 years, perhaps 6...but it'll keep the revenue going for a long time too, look at it that way..
They have to allocate more time and more resources to the project than TOS-R, its obvious with the amount of work, so hopefully it will be budgeted sensibly and the results will show.
