I too am suprised by the mention of a "hybrid extended version" of "The Measure of a Man." It does seem as if certain extended scenes weren't located on film and they decided to do a (probably seamlessly branched) version with upconverted SD.
The only value I can see in providing two versions is if, as you say, not all footage was located and they had to create two extended versions, one in full HD with what scenes they cover recover the negatives for, and a second, longer one with some upconverted scenes, making a total of 3 versions on this set.
Providing two versions of the same extended episode makes little sense as far as I can determine, but perhaps I'm not thinking laterally enough. Hopefully the full press release will clarify this.
Incidentally, I'm looking forward to Trekcore's interview with CBS Digital. How's that coming along, FrontierTrek?
