TrekCore: "Important News about DS9 in HD Coming May 10"



So it's not a green-light announcement for the series, but it still sounds like some sort of positive news...

Keeping my fingers crossed!

Maybe if it hasn't been officially greenlit yet, CBS is at least starting to have serious discussions and drawing up a game plan for it....

They could do a whole Special release on the Circle Arc, the Occupation arc, the final chapter...

BIG NEWS FOR DS9/VOYAGER REMASTERS - FULL STORY HERE!

  • Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Voyager are far more challenging to remaster in HD due to their use of CG. Until now, the original assets used to create these CG shots were presumed lost.
  • Through talking to original artists such as Robert Bonchune, I discovered that a large number of the assets still exist for these shows.
  • The scene files can be accessed using current technology relatively easily.
  • A large amount of the work produced originally was over-built and should hold up well when re-rendered in high definition.

Fantastic news. Seasons 1 through 5 could be rebuilt like they did TNG and the visuals for seasons 6 and 7 could be rerendered in this way. By the prophets, I hope we will get to see DS9 in HD in the near future.

If they can re-render the FX for DS9 and voyager, they better redo the CGI for the ST:TMP director's cut, finally.

Well the example HD re-render looks very good.

Wow, I'm blown away by these news! The example they provided looks great. Just applay the usual sweetening by CBS-D and this will look brilliant!

Oh man, DS9 on HD really has to happen!

Well, I doubt very much we'll see it until they get through TNG's season 7. But this is good news. Looks like we might be next on the list!

Wow, I'm totally blown away by the quality of that CG shot! It looks far better even than the work in TOS-R from many years later, in fact.

I know it's still early, but I HAVE to think this would make a huge difference in CBS's decision to remaster the series, since recreating the CG effects was probably the biggest obstacle...

Considering how fake the new CGI on TOS looked, that doesn't exactly mean anything.
