Seems cheap given the amount of new CGI vfx required.
We don't know how much new CGI vfx will be required, if any. Trekcore reported that some of the former employees who worked on DS9 kept the CGI project files...and the models were overbuilt with HD in mind. It's quite possible that very little would actually need to be recreated from scratch.
Yeah I know that.

But even if the scene files exist, all the models and textures still exist in their original form etc, it will still be pricey to re-render all those shots in HD. No point pretending otherwise.

Still cheaper than recreating every scene from scratch though and if the former employee is correct then the models and textures may very well stand up to the HD update with perhaps only some minor tweaking...relatively speaking.

You've likely seen this already, but if this is the result of re-rendering and compositing the original elements in HD, then I think it would look great.

Same scene, but someone synced it with audio from the original episode.

Re: DS9 on blu ray?

While re-rendering space battles and complete effects shots will take a fair bit of money, it is relatively simple to do. The real expense will be in the composite shots where live action marries with digital/modelwork. That's an order of magnitude harder and more expensive. I can't imagine how much all the Odo effects will cost.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to hold out some hope that DS9-HD will happen, it is just looking incredibly unlikely.
