Star Trek: The Next Generation Coming to Blu-ray

TrekMovie is reporting that Star Trek: The Next Generation TV series is going to get the HD treatment in 2012 with "test" sometime this year. Star Trek: The Original Series was previously released on Blu-ray. No idea if the grand plan is to make all of the Star Trek series available on Blu-ray but at the pace they are going it seems streaming or another format might come up before they finish. It does seem an appropriate release date though with 2012 being the 25th anniversary of TNG (sheesh hard to believe it has been that long).
Multiple sources I spoke with at Comic-Con have also confirmed our report from earlier this year that CBS is hard at work on Star Trek: The Next Generation – Remastered for Blu-ray release starting sometime in 2012. The latest word is that 4 test episodes are currently being worked on for release as a sampler/demo BD disc of the project, and that sampler disc will somehow be available to fans by the end of this year.
