Last month CBS officially announced Star Trek: The Next Generation – Remastered, revealing that all 178 episodes would be re-scanned from the original film elements and re-composited for a 1080p Blu-ray mastering. We now have a new trailer for the project, which you can watch after the jump.
As previously reported here on TrekMovie, CBS will release a sampler disc featuring three episodes from the series: the two-part pilot "Encounter at Farpoint", the season three episode "Sins of the Father" and the season five episode "The Inner Light". While the reveal trailer — which you can watch at this link if you haven’t already seen it — only featured a brief look at the restoration, CBS has released an updated version of the trailer which contains new footage from the episodes featured on the sampler disc.

TrekMovie will continue to track this project as further news is announced.
