Side-by-side pics show why Star Trek TNG: Blu-Ray is worth it

The forthcoming release of Star Trek: The Next Generation on Blu-Ray really gets our nerd juices flowing, and some übernerds (we say that with respect and a little bit of jealousy) have gone through scene by scene and taken note of a bunch of the cool new stuff that you can see in the remastered episodes that you couldn't see before.

For example, did you know that there's a little shout-out to Star Wars hidden in one of the props in Encounter at Far Point? Yeah, neither did anyone else, but thanks to the magic of high-res Blu-Ray, we can see it now.

In the gallery below, check out some of the ways that TNG: Remastered will make your life infinitely better, from sleekier starships to prettier planets to aliener aliens. Yeah, some of these examples are only going to appeal to seriously hardcore Star Trek fans, but that describes more or less everyone who's ever been interested in anything cool, right?

The images and captions are provided by Jörg Hillebrand and Bernd Schneider of TrekCore and Ex Astris Scientia, and you can hit up the link below to see even more examples.

So, what do you think: improvement, or defilement?
