    Quotation marks changed slightly. In Season 1 they used the curly quote marks: http://tng.trekcore.com/hd/albums/1x05/thelastoutpost_hd_057.jpg

    In Season 2 they used the straight quote marks: http://tng.trekcore.com/hd/albums/2x05/loudasawhisper_hd_049.jpg [but tapered and italicized unlike the sampler disc variant]

    They have stuck with the S2 quote marks for S3 onwards.

    Glanced into Syfy now, they're showing The Ensigns of Command, which looks... quite good. I haven't seen an HD episode of TNG so I can't tell, are they finally showing it in 'proper' HD?

    I noticed the picture isn't stretched, like it usually is when they're showing the old transfers.

    Yes, it's real HD. Comparing the pin-sharp HD remasters to the muddy old versions of the episode, it's like night and day.

    BTW, watching SyFy, the picture quality in season 3 episode is visibly better than season 2. Is that the same on the Blu-rays, to anyone who owns the discs?

    Yes, S2 was remastered quite poorly by a 3rd party. There was quite the outrage when it was released in December 2012. Are you really not reading the reviews of the Blu-ray sets? I dunno how you can't be at least curious how they turn out even if you aren't buying them.

    While not up to the quality of the work CBS-Digital did, the season two Blu-ray is miles ahead of the quality of the DVD set.

    I wasn't aware of that at the time, as I'd been out of the Trek loop for ages, since 2010, possibly earlier. I wasn't even aware that there was an HD remastering of TNG until a few months ago when I was browsing the channels on Sky looking for Trek episodes to watch! Having just seen Into Darkness in the cinema, I needed a Trek fix ASAP, or some kind of reminding that the sci-fi franchise I used to love wasn't as bad as the film I'd just paid to see.

    (There's no chance of a DS9 remastering into HD, is there?)

    It sounds like it's dependant on how well TNG performs. DS9 used a lot of CGI in the last couple of season which would all have to be recreated in HD so that complicates matters.
