This news came out last week:
You’ve heard the rumors, and now StarTrek.com can officially confirm it: Star Trek: The Next Generation will be released in high-definition Blu-ray, starting in January with a sampler of several popular episodes, followed by a season-one set to be released later on in 2012, and subsequent seasons beaming down after that. Each of the 178 episodes spanning The Next Generation‘s seven seasons will be transferred to true high-definition 1080p for release in the Blu-ray format.

This means I’m halting my TNG screencapping right now. There’s no point in continuing capping from DVD now, only to have to recap from Bluray next year. Because I know I’ll be capping the TNG blurays as soon as humanly possible.
I’m not entirely sure what to do right now. While waiting for the TNG blurays. I had a vague plan that first TNG, then DS9, and then selected episodes from VOY and then ENT at some point. But surely DS9 will follow TOS and TNG to Bluray at some point? But will it happen in 2-3 years, or a decade from now? Is there a point in starting to cap DS9 from DVD now?
Ugh. Hard question. Opinions?
