Re: DS9 on blu ray?

Well the TNG S6 Blus look fantastic, and it was awesome to see how well the DS9 station and sets hold up in HD.

Add my voice to the choir wanting DS9 get the same treatment for Blu-ray.

So now we have TOS, TNG and ENT, as well as the movies on Blu-ray.

DS9 and VOY deserve a similar treatment, and perhaps a combined project consisting of both DS9 and VOY alternating their season releases, being produced simultaneously, would work.

This is already a groundbreaking restoration, and Star Trek deserves and warrants this.

Any more news yet?

They must be well into working on TNG S7 now, so they will either have to start DS9 soon for an early 2015 release, or say they aren't doing it...?
There are no plans to remaster Deep Space Nine at present.

TNG is in the process of wrapping right now. Another week or so left to finalize stuff with "All Good Things"
No plans as in a definitive "no plans" from someone on the inside, or just literally no-one has said anything?

Re: DS9 on blu ray?

No DS9 on Blu = job incomplete.

CBS, please give your CBS-D people more work. They did a fantastic job so far, and getting this team onto a DS9 restoration would be very profitable for CBS.

And rightfully so. TNG on Blu has been worth every cent, and probably lengthened the life of the show for HD syndication, streaming and media sales.

Imagine that for DS9 and Voyager. All with fiercely loyal and vocal fans that would evangelize the property for years, perhaps decades to come.

It worked for TOS, it's working for TNG, and it will work for DS9, TAS and Voyager.

How about the animated series?

One and done. Shot and edited on film. Would be inexpensive enough to afford and would fill the gap in Trek on Blu-ray between TOS and the movies.

If they did it---Trek would be complete on Blu-ray from 1966-1992.

Only DS9 and Voyager would be left.

TAS should get a blu-ray release should be sooner than later. There's already an HD version of it available through streaming. I assume like for ENT, they'll want to create a featurette for it, maybe new commentaries too.

Did they clean it up or was it full of dirt, specs and scratches?

Re: DS9 on blu ray?

I can't wait for Deep Space Nine to come to Blu-ray! I was waiting forever until the show came on Netflix. Now that it's on there, and after watching all the episodes, I am looking forward to CBS releasing the Blu-ray. I know it will take a while though.

Re: DS9 on blu ray?

DS9 in HD will happen at some point, but clearly not as soon I'd like. My main concern is basically whether Blu ray will still be going when that happens. I'd prefer them to strike while the iron is hot. While they've got the access and the right team at CBS Digital. Well, because I'd like to have the whole Star Trek back catalogue in 1080p and on physical media. It's like 60-70% done with all the films, TOS, TNG & ENT. Just DS9 and VOY to go. I can maybe accept the collapse of Blu ray and cope with upscaled DVDs of Voyager. Just not DS9, based on the quality of model shots.

Re: DS9 on blu ray?

DS9 is probably the show that would benefit the most from HD. Much of the show looks murky and undefined in SD. I bet it would really pop and come alive in HD, much more than TNG.

Can't recall, I only watched a few on Netflix awhile ago. Should still be available.
