Re: Rumor: TNG-HD is a-coming

^ Remastering TNG in HD is crazy expensive as it is. Doing two versions - 4:3 and 16:9 - is going to be even more expensive. Therefore, I highly doubt that CBS is going to do that, and I assume that we're only getting one version. I'd just like that version to be the proper one. If CBS decides to give us a choice, I'd happily be proven wrong!
Since they did Star Trek Remastered in 4:3 and 16:9, it may be that broadcasters are more inclined to buy widescreen programming in Europe and Asia. Which would make a widescreen version a forgone conclusion.
