While it was rumored for some time, yesterday, CBS made it official. They will be remastering (in HD) all 178 episodes of the iconic "Star Trek: The Next Generation" television series. Each episode will be re-scanned from the original film elements and visual effects elements will be re-composited for mastering into Blue-ray, syndicated release on television, as well as digital distribution via Netflix and other online rental services.
The project is being released just in time for the 25th anniversary of the series in 2012. A sampler featuring four of the episodes will be released on January 31, 2012, with all seven seasons to follow. If you're interested, here are the details on the TNG Remastered project
