Not touching the movies on Blu until they get a full restoration in the manner of Bond.

Yeah, I must confess I'm dubious about how these films are going to turn out on Blu-ray. The supposed "remastered" Special Edition DVDs were a mediocre effort at best - lots of print damage, colour bleeding, over-saturation, etc. I'll hold judgement until the Blu-rays reach the shelves and we get some screenshots, but I'm not overly hopeful.

Might be waiting a long time. I would have throught we would have heard something by now as it takes a very long time to do it. I bet they will just release them when see fit.

I am sticking with the DVD's. I already bought each film twice.

Looks good - from the picture of the Season 1 boxset it looks like we will see a departure from the awful packaging used on the HD DVD set.

I have the HD broadcasts and the SE DVD of ST2 so they'll do for now.
Given the franchise value the reluctance or lack of impetus to start the restoration process at least to me screams out how Para/CBS view the fans as nothing more than cattle who will lap up anything.

Yes they may be waiting for the market to grow or restoration technology to develop bringing down costs etc but it's such a shame they haven't even committed to such an endeavor.

When they bring out First Contact that might persuade me to get at least one of the films in HD (it would be my fourth version). However, once I start I like to get the whole collection.

Well, if the remastered TOS set includes the original broadcast versions (as rumoured at the Digital Bits) then I'm definitely selling my HD DVD set and getting the Blu.

As for the movies, I'm definitely gonna pick up the US boxset. I love these flicks dearly and the lure of seeing/hearing them in HD will be too much to resist.

I hope Paramount have done some recent restoration on the Trek films because the Sky HD broadcasts are pretty crap compared to modern restored stuff
