‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ Teaser Shows a Blu-ray Makeover

Alright my Trekkies, it’s time to rejoice. Star Trek: The Next Generation is confirmed for Blu-ray and will be released next year in January. The first set will include select samples of popular episodes. The Season 1 set will be released later in 2012.

They’re really taking special care on this release, as they will be using the original negatives, that’s like 25,000-plus reels of footage, and will be editing each episode as they were intended to be. Let’s hope they don’t pull a Lucas. The special effects will be recomposited. The sound will include 7.1 DTS Master Audio.

“Fans have been clamoring for a high-definition release of Star Trek: The Next Generation,” Ken Ross, Executive Vice President and General Manager of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. “Transferring the series to high-definition presented difficult technical challenges, but our team has come up with a process to create true 1080p HD masters with true HD visual effects. We can’t wait to show fans how pristine the series looks and sounds with our upcoming Blu-ray releases.”

The first Star Trek: TNG Blu-ray, which is called Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level, will be released on January 31, 2012. The episodes will include the feature-length version of the series pilot, “Encounter at Farpoint,” “Sins of the Father” and “The Inner Light.”. The pricing will be $21.99.
