Well, careful with those wishes....according to practically every TV show or movie there is always a catch, especially how you word it. It's all in the details.

Many fans see this campaign as big hint at CBS to remaster the show in HD.
So please participate and vote for DS9 in HD and spread this campaign across the www.
I think it is silly for anyone to imply this would lead to an HD remaster by CBS.

I hope someone contacts RMB regarding a potential Kickstarter campaign and what would be needed from the fan side and from CBS's side. I'm sure it's doable. It's only money, after all. Maybe some rich Trek fan will throw in a few hundred Gs here and there, who knows...

I don't think you can cancel a thing that was never began... but that said, I feel like these will happen someday. Perhaps not as home released Blu-rays... but at some point they will realize it will be worth the investment to future-proof them and charge more for them to streaming services and syndication.

Consider that Voyager is now airing on BBC America... I haven't seen Voyage on TV in years before this recent deal... that's like free money to CBS because this show paid for itself long ago. All they need to do is realize they can make their upgrading money back through syndication worldwide and streaming deals... and then there will be value in it.

Might not see a home release, though, if by that time people have just stopped buying things.

But the whole point is that they're already getting money for nothing with these streaming deals etc, if they're going to spend a minimum of 8 figures on remastering then they want to see a return on that specific investment.

Yeah, they could charge more for their services when the streaming deals are up for renewal but, as RMB pointed out, the HD versions of TNG didn't make a splash on streaming because people - and I think we could regard most habitual streamers, if not the general public at large, as not being super-concerned about PQ and tech stuff - were utterly blasé about what it took to remaster them in the first place.

Yep. When multiple insiders say the same thing it's time to believe it, and they all say broadcasters and streamers care very little about old shows being in HD. The only real way I see streaming being an influence is if CBS' service gets exclusive Star Trek streaming eventually and wants to make that more enticing for Trekkers. The new show will probably take care of that though, especially if it never comes to disc (which I fear will be the case).

The DS9-Documentary that is currently on raising funds for the documentary on indiegogo.com has announced, that they are trying to get the original negatives from CBS to include the clips from the series in rescanned HD. They apparently also have reached out to some of the people that created the CGI back then like Doug Drexler, so some of the CGI-Sequences can be redone in HD. They are not sure if it's going to happen, but they have provided Trekmovie.com with a Video of what it could look like:

The moment I heard they planned to scan the original film negative I supported this campaign.

Sooner or later we will get DS9 in HD!
