I so want this, the clips I've seen look stunning

Perfect for watching the episode where Deanna Troi opens her cabin door wearing just a see through night dress. So i heard.

Good price, I bought this a while ago but end up just watching it on Netflix.

I do wonder about those clips. The show was only ever filmed on VHS in the first place so they can't do that much with the image as it was never that sharp to begin with unlike the orginal Star Trek that was filmed using 35mm film stock. The half screen clips look a bit like they are taking the image from a HD TV on the one side and an old CRT TV on the other too. VHS does not have progressive scan lines the TV's do which is what the split screen clips show.

All I can remember is that they redid most of the special effects from scratch. N a few other things. Took a lot longer than it was supposed to as well. Sadly someone stated that due to this and the costs they won't be doing the others :(. One day I'll have the cash to grab this,

As far as I know TNG was filmed on film reel and was completely rescanned and remastered for this release, all the special effects were redone. That's why this looks so good.
But Voyager and Deep Space 9 were shot onto lower quality VHS or something like that, so it's not possible to scan again in any higher quality

The Next Generation was filmed on 35mm film* then copied to video for distribution, the American video conversions were terrible and so the BBC insisted on doing the conversions themselves so the BBC2 Next Generations looked far better than any other Next Generations, until it was finally shown in HD on the Syfy channel more recently.

*The special effects were created on video and so for the HD conversions they had to re-do all the animations/special effects from scratch as upscaling the old standard definition tapes would have looked poor.

The other shows wouldn't have been recorded onto VHS, but the quality of them certainly isn't great so I don't know what they did record them onto.
