Will Voyager ever make it to Blu-Ray or HD?

hey guys, i just saw a trailer for TNG on 1080p Blu-Ray and it looks amazing.

does anyone know if Voyager will make it to HD of some kind? i've heard the Voyager CGI looks really terrible when it's given the HD treatment. is this true?

Re: Will Voyager ever make it to Blu-Ray or HD?

I haven't heard any direct information about Voyager going to Blu-Ray, but I think it is something people would like to see. Although considering that they're just putting TNG into HD now I would think that they would first put DS9 into Blu-Ray and then Voyager.

As for CGI, I really have no idea about that.My only guess there would be that it depends on whatever technology was used to create said CGI in the first place. It could be a compatability problem or something else.

I'd like to CGI Kathy's bun into a muppet.

Give it some lines.

Re: Will Voyager ever make it to Blu-Ray or HD?

I think it eventually will make it to HD, simply because it makes sense in the long term. But it's probably not going to happen for a good, long while. Both ENT and DS9 will likely get the Blu-ray/HD treatment before VOY will; ENT because it's already in HD, and DS9 because it wouldn't require as much work as VOY would.

Re: Will Voyager ever make it to Blu-Ray or HD?

I think one of the issues with the CGI in VOY/DSN is that it was rendered for SD and not HD. With TNG and eary season of DSN they used model work which would have been shot on film and as such have HD resoution already there.

Why can't they just bring the actors back in and reshoot everything?

Re: Will Voyager ever make it to Blu-Ray or HD?

They'd have to redo all the CG, which would be expensive. But, if Next Gen HD makes enough money, I'm sure they'll want more HD Trek to make money off of.

Although, Enterprise was shot in HD (with CG and makeup quality to match), and all it needs is a release on Bluray. Which they haven't done...

Re: Will Voyager ever make it to Blu-Ray or HD?

I'm sure they'll do HD Voyager at some point, but I doubt it'll make it to Blu-ray as the format's very likely already passed the half way point in its life cycle.

Re: Will Voyager ever make it to Blu-Ray or HD?

Voyager will probably get a cheap and nasty conversion to Bluray as an afterthought when the other shows have all been done.

It'll be OK but not worth redoing the CGI - it's the least popular of the shows shot in standard def.

Re: Will Voyager ever make it to Blu-Ray or HD?

It took me years to replace my video collection of VOY with the dvd set so I'm not falling over myself to have a new set to buy.

It took me one week to download all TNG, ENT, VOY, DS9, TOS and Animated.

About 60 disks,
