Re: Which of the series/movies need to be remastered?

Because all the editing for TNG, DS9 and Voyager was done on videotape. Since the native resolution of videotape is so low, it - by definition - cannot be aired in HD. The resolution just isn't there.

Film, OTOH, has a much higher resolution even than HD. But if videotape is involved anywhere in the equation, that kills HD airing right there.

Enterprise is the only ST series that was made from the ground up to be airable in HD. (Well, I suppose TOS could have been, as well, since it was done all on film, but some of its effects were so badly degraded that there would have been no point.)

Re: Which of the series/movies need to be remastered?

I would love to see both TNG and DS9 remastered. It would just look cooler seeing more ships and battles you can see and not just reactions from the bridge.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the shows. In fact I firmly believe that both TNG and DS9 can be pulled off on a stage in front of an audience because they are great stories, human stories, fact is though, you can't deny a cool space battle.

Nothing looks that outdated.. yet. And TOS is already in progress of being remastered.

Its pointless to remaster STV, but I WOULD like to see remastered STNG! Its a great show that would benefit from HD!

^Hear hear! TNG: Remastered FTW!

Oh, and in regards to the topic title...copy-and-paste one of Christpoher's rants about the misuse of the term "Remastered" here.

And then copy-and-paste one of Kegek's arguments about the lexical mutability of words.

Isn't "The Lexical Mutability of Words" a song by The Art Of Noise or something?

Oh, wait, no, that's "The Holy Egoism of Genius". My bad.

I think that all of the Original Series films could stand to have some restorative work done on them - and I mean that in the sense of cleaning up any imperfections in the sound or picture. The dreary flutering Paramount logo over the intro of the films alone deserves to be replaced.

TNG should be completely redone. Take the existing 35mm negs, transfer them directly to high def, and then re-do the FX note-for-note on CGI. Screw the transferred-to-video crap that we have had for the show since its inception. I can only imagine the likely startling look that the live-action footage alone would have. I remember the '97 remasters for TOS, and hoping that the same would be done for TNG somewhere down the line.
