There is no news on Voyager on Blu-ray. Voyager (as well as The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine) were edited entirely in standard definition, so creating a high definition version for Blu-ray would require going back to the original film elements, re-editing the episodes together, and re-doing all special effects. While possible, it is not likely to happen anytime soon, especially for Voyager which is by far the least popular of the 3 Star Trek series this would need to be done for. Next Generation is more likely, but even that is not something that will definitely happen - only time will tell.

The next Star Trek series to see release on Blu-ray would most likely be Enterprise considering that is mostly HD-ready.

As much as I love some good Star Trek, Voyager just doesnt impress me as much as the other series. I would much rather see Deep Space Nine before Voyager.

I always liked Quark.

All ST will go Blu. It is only a matter of time. As mentioned, Enterprise should be next and it could come next year. As for the other 3, they are likely going to be released by production. Voyager could be 8-10 years off.

I wouldn't count on Enterprise being anytime soon either

The DVD sales were....worse than Voyager (Voyager sold decently in the EU because it was the first Trek many of them saw first run on a major station)

Some first week sales on Voyager domestically were in 4 digits, so do your own math there.

Amazon creates placeholders for popular searches, notice "signup to be notified when available"

I'm not surprised at those numbers considering Voyager wasn't all too popular here, and the sets were an unbelievable $120+ until just last year maybe. Like actually $120 even on Amazon, not just MSRP $120.

All i want is TNG, although the last 4 season of DS9 would be cool to own

I never much liked it in the first 3 seasons, I always equate the show getting better when sisko shaved his head (not the reason, but he shaved it right around the time the show found it's footing)

If an Amazon listing says "Sign up to be notified when this item becomes available" then that means it's just an Amazon placeholder - a page they've put up because a lot of people have searched for the item, but they don't actually have any real info on it. The Amazon placeholders don't mean anything, there is zero correlation between them and actual announced products - the product could easily never be announced.

If a distributor has actually told Amazon that the product is planned, then there will be an active preorder for it.

Paramount had no set SRP on the Trek sets. The wholesale price was the same as $149.99 though.

They used to charge $14.95 PER EPISODE on VHS, so it's a bargain

As mentioned earlier in this post, there have been long threads on this topic before. The work and cost involved in restoring even a single episode is simply not feasible at this point in time. Physically possible? Yes. Realistic no.

The cost involved would be tremendous. Give it a few years for more practical solutions to become available.

You're both forgetting that the animated series from the seventies are Blu ready too. It was shot on film and the Tribble episode is on the 2nd season Blu set. Granted, so is the uprezzed DS9 Tribble episode, but the animated show is HD ready. Enterprise maybe the more likely candidate, but don't count the animated series out yet. Heck, it's the only one other than the original series to have a Blu release (again, as a special feature and with the uprezzed DS9 episode, but you know what I mean).

If the old DVD had sold for the price of other TV shows, the sales would've been much higher. When Trek first started coming out on DVD, it was going for $150 per season up here. Only now, once DVD prices start declining thanks to BD do they drop to the $65 level. I'm glad I didn't buy any of them, though, as owning them on BD will be a heck of a lot better. Luckily my local library system had all the TNG and TOS season sets on DVD, so I was able to watch them that way. And I chose to rent Enterprise for $6 per season from a place near me.

Since TOS is already out, Enterprise and TNG are the ones I'm most looking forward to now. While a lot of people like to bash ENT, I found it to be much better than I remembered in a second viewing. Might pick up DS9 (although not my favourite), but VOY was the worst. Won't be buying that.
