    The Good:

    "[CBS] 'had discussions' to bring Star Trek The Next Generation onto high definition."

    The Bad and the Ugly:

    "One concern is the visual effects (...) were done in video and therefore more difficult to translate to HD." (TOS was shot on film)

    Whatever happens with this HD project, this tells me the new "complete series" set will not look any better than the original DVD sets.

    I have the entire series, but a true HD transfer of TNG would be quite something, and I would not mind spending more cash on it. The cost would sting, sure, but I would do it.

    VHS video quality on DVD? No, thanks.
