What do you want to see in DS9 Remastered?

I want to see more runabouts, more of the Defiant's shuttlebay, more Trills, Andorians, Tellarites, Trials and Tribblelations: exterior shots of the Enterprise and D7 entering warp; add shots from The Trouble with Tribbles Remastered and add new shots period.

Re: What do you want to see in DS9 Remastered?

At the bare minimum:
-Fix the godawful saturation and contrast that the VHS masters had
-TNG S1 level reworking of the model made VFX
-Some more ship variety in the DS9 fleet battle scenes (but keep the iconic shots, like that Miranda rolling into the camera in Sacrifice of Angels)
-Fix the Bellerophon's and second Defiant's registry numbers
-Less stock footage in the finale

I wouldn't expect CBS to make new footage or edit episodes.

^For the CGI elements they might have to because more than likely they were rendered for SD not HD.

Re: What do you want to see in DS9 Remastered?

I don't want any "new" stuff that isn't justified. (Things that were done in error the first time are fair game.) As with TNG, I mostly just want the show the way it was. Except I hope that when it comes time to recreate CG shots:

That the Defiant model is a better match for the physical one than it was originally.
That they do not copy/paste stocks shots as they were forced to do originally.

And I don't think a director's cut of "To The Death" is out of the question. As for other episodes, I'd just be happy to see some deleted scenes in the extras.

Re: What do you want to see in DS9 Remastered?

Is a DS9 remaster even nearly as marketable as TNG Remastered? DS9 already looks pretty okay, at least as far as special effects are concerned. TNG benefits way more from the special treatment, and of course it was the more popular series, so there's more of a profit for Paramount.

DS9 currently has the exact same lo-res video transfers that TNG had. It will benefit from a remastering every bit as much as TNG has.

Re: What do you want to see in DS9 Remastered?

Does anyone else see a purple tint occasionally on the DVD release? I am begging for them to release this on BluRay, but I do have my doubts that it would be profitable enough for them. Although saying that, the Trek community is a loyal one, maybe fan based sales would be enough to make it plausible?

Not really, although the last time I rewatched some DS9, I picked a season 7 episode. The purple tint sounds a lot like whatever happened to the TNG S1 masters.

Re: What do you want to see in DS9 Remastered?

There's bound to be a DS9 Bluray release. Most of it was filmed - even the FX for the first few years, so it's suitable, although the last few (2 ?) seasons will need new FX to replace the lo-res CGI. Or so I heard... Costly, but less so than Voyager which is apparently stuffed as it's all CG'd and would need a complete do-over.

Trek series have to keep being reissued to keep earning money - it's just that the less popular shows don't have the sales to make it worth it until costs drop. That's why Enterprise has leapfrogged the other shows - it's already pretty much ready for Bluray already so despite it's lack of popularity, it's cheapness makes it worthwhile releasing next.

Re: What do you want to see in DS9 Remastered?

in my opinion there was too much about the Dominion war. I'd like that edited to a shorter story arc and a few open ends led to a decent conclusion. For example, a few episodes about Kai Opaka in exile would have been interesting, particularly with Kai Winn as a counterpart. Or if/how the shapeshifters managed to survive their disease (and why didn't Odo get infected?). What happened to the prophets? They surely didn't appreciate a war right in front of their door. Did Lwaxana and Odo stay in contact?
Hmm.. just had an idea: imagine an epi with Lwaxana and Mooghie as a team! They could easily take on the whole quadrant and make a good profit (and a lot of fun)

There are a zillion other questions that never got answered.

Huh? What do you mean if/how the Founders got cured and why didn't Odo get infected? Odo was infected by Section 31, and passed it onto the rest of them. Then he was cured when Miles and Bashir entered Sloane's mind. In the Finale he cured The Female Founder and then went back to the link to cure the rest of them.

Re: What do you want to see in DS9 Remastered?

ah, must have missed that one. Thanks, Sindatur
But that leads us to another gap I'd like to be filled:

how did Section 31 discover/develop the desease in the first place? It would require at least one changeling for researching their physiology and they could easily have used that "guinea-pig" to infect the Great Link instead of infecting Odo at the off-chance that he might one day go back to his people and infect them.
And when Odo was cured, why didn't he cure the orther Founders immediately? They'd have owed him then and the whole Dominion War could have been ended then and there.

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, that really has nothing to do with this thread. (As in, there is zero chance of them changing the story content.)
