Don't want to see your beloved holy grail tampered with? Great. Keep watching your DVDs or VHS tapes.

Whether you like it or not, it's going to happen. The original show is already getting remastered and TNG will be next.

Re: Which of the series/movies need to be remastered?

TNG. I would say that the original series needs remastering except that they're already doing that. The problem as I see it with TNG is that for someone like me who was introduced to TNG starting with the 4th or 5th season, the contrast between the quality of the effects in the 5th season and that in the 1st season are somewhat jarring.
It wouldn't have been that bad if the show had had a unified look in terms of effects but the dramatic improvements of the later seasons should be applied to the earlier seasons. The later seasons are good, although they could use a few tweaks here and there.

I think it would be cool if they scanned the model of the enterprise-d and created a digital ship for the shots. That way they could show us some views of the enterprise that we never saw when it originally aired on tv.

Re: Which of the series/movies need to be remastered?

all of them need remastering to put in new alien ships and not 'the batris-painted a new colour, turned upside down and a few greeblies added' type model re-uses.

FFS, a Romulan scout ship appeared in VGR painted YELLOW!

also, more new footage in WYLB and less stock.

and more varied ships in TNG and not Excelsior-of-the-week...

Yeah, I didn't realize just how much they reused ship. I know they had a limited budget, but you'd think they could've spread it out for more new models. Even if they were less complicated, at least they would have been different.

Yes, let them be. The digital tweaking just muddles the whole thing. I wish they had left TOS alone. :-(

I don't understand why so many of you want TNG to be remastered! Or DS9! Would that improve the stories? Am I the only one who watches Trek because of the drama? Or because of now-cheesy looking effects.

I voted for none as well. Each was a product of its time and deserves to be viewed as such.

Re: Which of the series/movies need to be remastered?

TNG has aged the worst and would benefit the most.

I find all of this "product of it's time" stuff to be rather silly, and I feel the same way about the Star Wars special editions. As long as the actors performances and the stories being told (the only things that are truly important and relevant) are unaffected, then I say go to town on the effects, as they are the least important and mosty irrelevant aspect of any good Trek anyway.

(And no, Greedo shooting first did less than nothing to either the story or Han Solo's character. How anyone can say that Han Solo loses any "edge" he might have had is beyond me, and I really think that such people who believe this need to watch it again. Han shoots a being in a public place and in front of dozens of witnesses. He then stares down the room, casually tosses the barkeep some coin, apologizes for the mess and strolls on out. And somehow he loses his edginess...? )

Remaster Enterprise's 2004 level effects to 2007 level - now that would be worthwhile.

Re: Which of the series/movies need to be remastered?

To add to what I said yesterday-- Because of the re-mastered TOS, I'm actually watching TOS on broadcast TV again. A show that I had recorded completely on tape 15 years ago, and bought the DVD's as soon as I could afford them (used), and I'm watching it on TV. Sometimes (actually, mostly) I'm happy with what they do, and sometimes I'm not, but I'm interested again. The story is the same for me with TNG. I have it all on DVD, but I would watch it again with re-mastered effects, as long as the actual relevant story content is unaffected. If re-mastering old eps can attract new viewers and bring back old ones, how can they not consider doing it? And how can it not be anything other than good for the franchise as whole?

What needs remastering?

Anything where the SFX were done either on NTSC video, or with strings.

If you want them to be airable in HD, you have no choice. They *must* be remastered for that to happen.

Why do they have no choice? Is just because they look better or is there more to it?
