Good article, Gus.

Clarifies a lot of what I assumed were the problems in remastering DS9 (and VGR) to blu ray (cost vs. return being the biggest reason).

I've already resolved that, if I win Powerball, I'm going to front CBS the $20M to do a DS9 remaster in return for executive producer credit on the jackets.

Nothing really new there but it's great to have this reference from now on whenever someone asks why DS9 and VOY aren't on Blu Ray "but ENT is and that show was the least popular". I do hope that, one day, they will decide to do DS9 and VOY as well (yes there ARE fans of VOY and they do deserve it on Blu Ray just as the Niners deserve their show). Small hope, I know, but still. It's also heartbreaking that they did so much work and put so much effort into restoring TNG and thanks to streaming services people now just take it all for granted. I've encountered younger fans who had no idea that TNG went through this process, they simply assumed it had always been this way.

Thanks.

It answers a lot of questions.

I pretty much new most of the info, but it is a good detailed explanation of events as they currently are.  I know at this point it is a pipe dream, but I really do hope that DS9 gets remastered someday.  Voyager would be good for fans of that show, but I think DS9 holds up so well in terms of storytelling, and I think cleaned up and rerendered in HD, it could still be a big hit on something like All Access. But, alas, it may not be meant to be.

I think Ds9, and Voyager still hold up visually. It's Babylon 5 that badly needs a remaster/ new effects.Hard to believe Ds9 and B5 had the same cgi effects company. Ds9 holds up so much better.

Just all about the budget. B5 really didn't have much of one.
