Back in September, we found out Star Trek The Next Generation was being refreshed for a Blu Ray release. More than refreshed, it is being completely recut from the original negative since the masters were all done on video tape.

This video shows a side by side comparison of the show as it was originally presented (and already released on DVD) and the new version.

The sampler disc containing “Encounter At Farpoint,” “Sins Of The Father,” and “The Inner Light” will be released on January 31. The remainder of the series will be coming, but will take years.
