Star Trek: The Next Generation Remastered And Finally Arriving Jan. 2012

Star Trek: The Next Generation will finally be released on Blu-Ray beginning in January with a $21.99 sampler of “Encounter at Farpoint,” “Inner Light,” and “Sins of the Father” called “Star Trek: The Next Generation–The Next Level.” The full first season will be released later in 2012, followed by each of the subsequent seasons. For the show’s 25th anniversary next year, the present is ours.

The project has been underway for some time, as CBS went back to the original film negatives, re-editing each episode and not upconverting but actually recompositioning all of the effects. The result–178 episodes in 1080p and DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1.

Watch the trailer:

By day, Ruth works to make open source software communities better. The rest of the time, she makes things, which means her husband and kids know to watch out for stray sewing pins and to ask before eating anything made of fondant.
