^ But while spreading this rumor they also give credence to this long-standing misconception:

For a while, we heard that Paramount wasn’t planning to upgrade the modern Treks due to the high price tag involved (the series were filmed on video as opposed to film for TOS)
Too bad so few seem to understand the rather simple distinction between being mastered on videotape versus 'filmed' on tape.
Hehe, they're wrong twice there. Not only was TNG not filmed on video, it isn't even possible to "film" a show on video.
