Below is a capture from TOS-R season 3 episode "The Enterprise Incident", along with the same cap from the cropped 16x9 version shown on CBS Action in the UK an hour ago.
Does anybody really want this for TNG-R - really?!!!
It's just a straight crop. Doesn't look like there was any creativity involved.
It was a crop that squeezed in every head? What else do you expect them to do? I'm sorry but selective stretching is even worse. Maybe you can bluff it for a screen shot, but try doing a scene where characters/cameras move and you end up with stretch/contractions changing and it looks terrible.
If you want to see this in action set your tv to the progressive stretch where the edges are stretched more than the center.
