While I do think that TNG could benefit from some better CGI in a few instances... I don't think there are too many where it would make a difference.

So, who cares if the planet they orbit this week looks like the one from 2 years ago? Personally, I don't

^^^^ The Star Wars Prequels failed (storywise at least) because exactly that, the story was utter crap.

The FX had nothing to do with it, and in fact, had the story been on par with the originals, people would praise them royally.

I like them just fine the way they are now.
And that's why your name is Nerdius Maximus lol

I think he was referring to the remastered OT.

It'd be cool to see new versions of the reused matt-paintings. Angel One, Darwin Research Institute... Also different locations on Qo'noS, Cardassia...Earth!

Damn right I would. And I don't consider the Star Wars SE's to be backwards. I *prefer* them.

People once thought colorizing b&w movies was a great idea. So don't worry, time will prove us purists right.

I was once a purist about colorizing, until I saw the BD of 20 Million Miles to Earth. I actually preferred the new colorized version. The software has come a long way.

However, I'd probably be more anal about "A" pictures like Citizen Kane, Rebecca, etc.

It would need a bit of work from the CGI Enterprise D in "These Are the Voyages..." If they do a lot of work on it and make it look the equivalent of the new 1701 from TOS-R, then I'd go for it. It looked a bit off in TATV.

The show's first few seasons are badly in needed of a clean up, even TOS looks better. However the later seasons look fine as they are.

Re: If STNG were remastered...

I've said it many times, PLEASE get rid of those damn 80's green computer screens in the earlier episodes. I think they've made color screens in 400 years!!!

What about those screens in the first four movies - clearly made on an old BBC Micro.

Do you happen to have a screenshot? I can't seem to remember how they looked, but they had to have been better than 80's green screens..
