Sorry, but I don't agree. Some older series and movies are simply upscaled to appear HD, which can sometimes result in pretty lousy quality. My br-player is set to play everything in Native settings, meaning a dvd is not upscaled. I've seen the effect of upscaling, and sometimes it's just horrible.
ENT was mastered in HD. It neither required a remaster nor upscaling. It was always already in full HD. So, yes, it's the same resolution as the TNG remaster.

On the other hand, upscaling does wonders in some cases ... that's my experience, for what it's worth.
Upscaling adds no new resolution, it just prevents the image from looking like total crap on an HD TV.
