lower resolution formats can hide flaws in the original source material.
If HD resolutions show those flaws, then let them. Help inspire future film and TV show makers to not HAVE those flaws.

There's somebody either around here or another forum I frequent with a sig that says something to the effect of "It's not that you're still seeing the wires holding them up, it's that after so many years, you're still looking for them."

I also didn't like the changes already made to TAS for the DVD release (a few colours were changed).
Why didn't you like those changes? They were done just to fix mistakes, weren't they? (AFAIK, Hal Sutherland was colorblind, so that may be the source of some of them, like the pink Klingon uniforms)

I just don't think it's worth HDing a cartoon.
Perhaps. I have the opposite view. I advocate HDing everything possible. I mean, it can't look any worse, can it?
I get fixing mistakes (although with the ..erm.. 'dated' animation, imo the mikstakes add to the charm) but stuff like changing the Delta Triangle from it's misty red to solid black is utterly pointless and wasn't even done properly (once or twice triangle space is still red)!

I never did get this move. What the hell was the point? It made no sense to change the Delta triangle space from red and cloudy to black.

Re: Should There Be A Blu Ray Of The Animaited Series?

I may have to modify my stance a tad. While trying to do a bit of research on registry numbers, I found the resolution to be a bit lacking.

Not that I can view anything HD yet anyway, but at least I could rest assured that, sooner or later, trekcore.com would get around to some high def screen caps.
