During the 3-part documentary, director James L. Conway mentions having to keep his options open, because there was some hesitancy in going over to 16:9. As a result during the pilot, sometimes shots look like a cropped frame with close-ups that are closer than generally composed, as the series went on. This is noticable throughout the cornfield chase, and first scenes involving discussion of returning Klaang home.

That would explain the grainier image, if it had to be zoomed in.
Which one are you saying is grainier? The 16:9 one uses a wider part of the film frame, so it's "zoomed out" effectively. And I wouldn't use the 4:3 version as any sort of image quality test, since it's a conversion from the NTSC version...
