I've been holding out on the individual sets as I'm hoping there'll be a boxset put together once they've all been released. Hopefully with 7 coming out we'll get some sort of announcement.

If they do I doubt it will be less than 250, I have found it much more wallet friendly spreading out my purchases over the last 3 years.

Was hoping for this year, good stuff.

CBS have said there aren't any plans to do DS9 or VOY straight after TNG. From what I understand TNG hasn't been as successful as was hoped and that on Blu-ray sale alone they'll just about break even once Season 7 is released.

Perhaps once TNG has made more of its money back in syndication then we'll see DS9 and VOY.

I wouldn't hold my breath since they never released a complete box for either TOS or Enterprise in the US. They eventually releasd a TOS boxset in the UK, but I doubt they'll do one for TNG since the price of seven remastered seasons in one box would probably drive most customers away.

A bit to soon to say it's been unsuccessful, wait until they have released the seasons 1 to 7 boxset/multipack. While they might make the UK wait a year or so for the boxset, the US/Canada will more than likely get a multipack on the same day as the Season 7 release.

Also, wasn't TNG HD part of the recent 2 year deal in the US between CBS and Netflix?

Price is a total joke they'd have to at least half that for it to be reasonable.

Weren't BD sales always a nice little bonus? The long term profits are going to be in the streaming deals that they secure around these. Now that the series is future-proofed, those deals should rake in the $$$s for years to come.

I really hope that they give the remaining series the full remaster treatment, but it wouldn't overly surprise me if they went down the route of Firefly and The X-Files, ie. remaster the non-FX footage and then upscale the rest. Gutted if they do do that though.

I have to say I was wowed by the HD picture quality of the first much-hyped series, but settling down to start on Season 5 last weekend I thought the PQ was totally underwhelming - soft and muddy. Honestly watching it on a 65 inch TV it looked like SD upscaled. Can't help feeling they've dropped the ball on the quality front.

Was S5 one of those where CBS out sourced the HD restoration. I know a couple of seasons are worse than the others hence CBS slowed the release pace so all the work could be done in house. However is does now mean a few seasons will always be worse than the others.

Think Season 4 was the last one to be outsourced wasn't it?

CBS-D were going to do all of the odd-numbered seasons with the even-numbered being farmed out, but they ended up doing 5-7 (along with 1 and 3) if memory serves.

No, Seasons 2 and 4 were out sourced to other companies, CBS did all the others.

I've yet to reach Season 5, but if it is a softer image then it's possible a different film stock was used. The Child from Season 2 quite clearly used many different kinds of film stock, resulting in some shots looking softer or grainier than others.

I'd remastered DS9 and Voyager myself, for free, if I had the necessary skills, lol.

I might be able to do some compositing work, but some of the later CG stuff is beyond my skill.

It's just a placeholder dude, it'll go cheaper than that.

Probably end up somewhere between 45-50 I'd imagine.

Its just a place holder price, come release it will be 40-50 just like the past 6 seasons.

Season 5 has the most SD upscaled footage, sure you weren't watching one of those

I think we have become so used to how good it looks on BD that its easy to forget how down right horrible it looks in SD, the quality drop in the episodes with SD upscaled footage is quite jarring.
