mperdue said:The original Star Trek was digitally remastered prior to its run on the SciFi channel in 1998. The new DVD's were made from these masters. It's not as good as HD, but it's lot better than some of the older transfers I've seen.
Not to Hi Jack this into a ST thing, Mario is correct digital (improved) masters were made but film was not shot in 16:9 so you get what you get. Paramount started "protecting" for 16:9 as well as regular 4:3 all important shows about 1998. Note later years of Jag were shot in letter box format.
