HD experts, help an idiot!

So I have a technical question concerning HDTV (or HD-DVD or Bluray or whatever).... Am I correct in assuming that the reason TOS can be remastered and rereleased in HD is because it was filmed on actual 35mm film stock which is just sort of "scanned" in a higher definition than what was done for DVD?

And if so, does that mean that TNG will never be released in HD because all of the source material was transferred to video first for post-production? Because I'd just love to see a HD version of TNG as I'm sure many people would. Can we hold our breaths for that?
