^I can scan my own personal 16mm film copies of TOS (I own a dozen eps) at 3K -- and the effects sequences LOOK amazing after the dirt and grime has been removed with PF Clean --- so much better than anything on the Blu-Ray. Clearly the restoration team for TOS didn't have a clue -- probably why the company that did the transfers went out of business after the writer's strike. Given a 35mm interpositive or internegative, you could do wonders -- but with old film it is essential to do an emulsion level scan properly. I suggest using the Northlight 2 film scanner instead of a typical Spirit 2K telecine. The difference is night/day.
