People actually cared about that?

Re: The Trek Series Fans Want To See On Blu-ray Next Is...

How was Voyager produced anyway? Was it done on film like TNG? I think VOY made extensive use of CGI..all of that would have to be recreated...or maybe not...I read rumors somewhere that Voyagers CGI was actually produced in a res higher than full HD...not sure what it acutally true.

Well..I would prefer DS9 first anway, because thats the series besides ENT that I haven´t seen more then 90%.

Well considering all the CG in Enterprise was only rendered at 720p I'd be very surprised if Voyager was done at a higher res.

Everything from TNG season 1 until I think about season 3 of Enterprise -- well, the live action stuff, anyway -- was done on film. So all of DS9 and Voyager's live action footage is sitting in a vault in all its high resolution film glory.

The visual effects are trickier, of course. TNG's visual effects were edited and composited on video, but the original motion control model elements were all shot on film first and then transferred to video. So when they are doing the HD versions, they can actually go back to the original film elements and recomposite them in most cases. With only a handful of exceptions -- such as the soliton wave -- there was no CGI used in TNG.

But DS9 and Voyager both make extensive use of CGI. And unless they were originally rendered at HD resolution, which I doubt considering Enterprise's were only done at 720p, then those all have to be re-rendered (if the original files are still available) or re-created from scratch (if they're not). So, ironically, it may be more difficult to get DS9 and Voyager into HD, even though they're newer series.

It's ironic how the show that got the least votes in the poll is already scheduled for a BD release, since ENT was filmed in HD and requires minimal effort to release.

As for DS9 and VOY I'm sure they'll get a HD release though I'm not so sure they'll go the extra mile like they did for S1 TNG, but I could see them doing a good job for the live action portions of the series and a halfway decent upscale of the FX shots.

You also have to factor in the fact that the tapes that DS9 and VOY are on aren't getting any younger and will eventually degrade to the point where they'll be as bad as TNG was before the remaster. There is also the cost of starting up a remastering project that was shut down (which also costs money) versus just continuing the restoration process that was already started.

I'm pretty confident that DS9 and VOY will get the HD treatment at some point even if tptb don't bother with a BD, streaming and digital downloads is where things seem to be headed.
