Why?  Why would anyone want this in HD?

There's only one good episode, a few more that are OK, but the rest are just terrible.  Watching them as a 10 year old I thought they weren't that good, now they are just awful.

Yeah I have to agree..
These in blu-ray are a waste of time and I have no plans to get them :-\

DS9 needs to be in blu-ray!

I too am puzzled about the Animated series. My feelings about it echo those of both of you. And DS9... yeah, it should definitely be on Blu ray, so... make it so.

I wonder if a crowd-funding/KickStarter would get CBS's attention to do this.. :-\
Not sure if I could pitch in a lot with what my wife is going through but still could be an option..

I wonder what the budget would have to be?  Rumor has it CBS wasn't thrilled with the sales numbers for the TNG sets, and doing DS9 would require a lot more expensive CGI recreations, especially in the later seasons when they started using it more.

Yeah that's what I heard as well.. Maybe as technology advances, it won't be so expensive to do :-\

For now I guess one can always stream the episodes. Of course, that's not HD, as far as I know.

Oh I have them all backed up on several hard drives (including one I have here in Acapulco) so I don't have to fight with my local ISP about running over my data package limit  ;D

I don't think it's ever going to happen. At best they might give a half assed version where the cgi is just uprezzed rather than rendered at the higher resolution. Despite the vocal fan community most people didn't really care about Ds9. Hell, I'm a Trek fan and I wouldn't buy it.

Yeah this is probably true. I would buy them if they ever did but not the Voyager series.. :-\

I've been watching DS9 on Netflix. It's a nice little stroll down memory lane. I still think it's the best Trek series overall.

I was on a DS9 marathon back in July and August and only finished to Season 6 before having to rush to Mexico to help my wife during her cancer treatment..
Took my external hard drive with both TNG & DS9 on it but never got the time to finish season 7 while there so this past week I watched a few episodes each night and will watch the last 6 episodes this evening 8)
Yeah I agree that it's the best series overall
