The Star Trek remastering project is financially totally dependent on Blu-ray sales at this point, with a bit of iTunes (etc.) money in there.
It has to be a bit more than just that since they're selling syndication rights to seasons one and two in England.
Since DS9 shouldn't be too far down the road if they keep with the Next Gen release schedule, shouldn't Mike Okuda be able to tell us if it is "on track" as far as sales go (they have to have a magic number if the promise has been made)? In order to make the statement that it is totally dependent on TNG sales, someone should've already crunched the numbers on what DS9 season one will cost to remaster. Right?
I'm not trying to be a dick and I like Mike Okuda, but I'm pretty sure the decision to greenlight DS9-R is made far above his pay-grade. I buy TNG-R because I like TNG, not because it implies some promise to upgrade the other series and, honestly, I think it's wrong to present it that way.
