One other thing: Anyone else think to themselves what "could have been" when they interspersed certain bloopers throughout the documentaries in widescreen? Some were pretty extended scenes (one in Picard's ready room comes to mind) and widescreen would have really given the series a more modern feel if it was feasible to do for the restoration. Don't get me wrong, I understand all the reasons why they couldn't do it, but it was sort of neat to see some of the blooper footage of the ship and crew fill up all 55 inches of my tv for brief snippets of time.
I wouldn't be surprised if when it airs on tv it's cropped to 16:9, the Australian Sci Fi channel is doing that with the TOS remastered episodes and I quite like it. I'm currently watching DS9 on dvd cropped to that aspect ratio and it looks pretty good despite the drop in resolution. Hopefully there's more option for widescreen when/if they remaster DS9...
