So... Is that it for hopes of remastered TNG?

Could we say that this article

http://www.trektoday.com/news/121008_01.shtml

tells us (second to the last paragraph) it's likely to never happen? Or at least won't any time in the near future?

We knew it was unlikely anyway. I think a different and more capable company could probably do it in less time, but we're still looking at a project over 5 years, and I just don't see it happening.

It's for the better, TNG is fine just the way it is. We don't need them replacing all the tricorders with walkie talkies.

But the Next Generation tricorders were walkie talkies.

You mean they won't replace Geordi's VISOR with Blu Blockers?

I really could not get excited over redoing TNG effects. There are some dodgy things in the first season, but that's it. Waste of time.

If they want to air it in HD, it does.

(Any time you see it on a HD channel now, it's not actually airing *in* HD.)

TNG looks fine, to hell with HD.

Re: So... Is that it for hopes of remastered TNG?

I hated the four-foot filming miniature of the Enterprise-D. Every shot featuring that bulked-up, over-textured model screams, "Toy!"

I think it would be fun to see the ship shots renovated to use something that more closely resembled the six-footer.

It is fine alright.

I hope they will keep their hands off 'my' TNG. If not, I'll turn into a . *lol*

I mean TNG is fine the way it is. No need for unnecessary re-mastering. *shakes fist* Leave it alone, I say!

i hope it doesn't happen soon. >_< i still want my current tng dvd set to be the epitomy of the dvd collection. maybe some 10 years down the line or 5 when i've gotten full use of the regular dvds. sure i know the dvds have been out for a long time, but i hate it when they come out with something better soon after the "regular" ones are out.

I'd like to see it done at some point in the future, but it's not exactly a high priority for me right now.
