Regular price is $99.99. According to Cheap Charts, this is the cheapest it has been. But it is available for streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime, so I will probably still pass since I have the physical disks and both of these streaming options. Maybe if it was at least 50% off I would bite
This is not quite true. They actually went back to the original film for every effect shot (where possible) and composited them digitally. Any effects that were shot on film were reused and are now in HD. So, the shots of the Enterprise are the original effects. Anything that was originally done on tape has been recreated with CGI. There are a few shots of the Enterprise that are purely CG because the original film was missing. DS9 and Voyager relied on CGI much more, which was all created in SD. To remake either of them you'd have to either completely recreate all of the CGI, or re-render the original CG effects. Someone has actually done this with a few DS9 scenes and it looks surprisingly good!
I think you're confusing resolution and aspect ratio. TNG is in 4:3 format but still HD resolution.

Older shows like Seinfeld that are now presented in widescreen are actually cropped and zoomed in to fill the screen. You are actually losing part of the picture when they do this. The Netflix stream is still HD resolution, but in the original 4:3 aspect ratio, which in my opinion is correct. When they remastered TNG they did not zoom in or crop it. They did investigate if they could get more information in the film negatives to make it widescreen, however it could not be done, so it remains 4:3.

Picard Episode 1 & 8 was great just skip 2,3,4,5,6,7 (too much drama , not enough adventure or action which 1 & 8 had (action)

ST:TNG was shot on film but edited and mastered on standard def video originally. Were the original film shots reedited with HD special effects and remastered, or is this just a bump-up from SD to HD?

I started watching older ST:TNG episodes recently and its sad how much they ruined Picard with Star Trek: Picard compared to how interesting and smart he was in TNG. $59.99 is a steal. I'm just waiting for a deal someday on DS9 to complete my ST collection.

For the blu-ray release of ST:TNG, they went through and redid massive amounts of effects shots. For example, every single practical-effect pan of ships in space was redone in HD CGI (looks fantastic!) It was a long and very expensive process, but well worth it. Unfortunately, it didn't sell that well, which is why remastered DS9 and Voyager never followed. I don't know whether Vudu or Apple licensed the remastered version or not -- I'll leave that to those with experience with the show on these services -- but the remastered edition does exist.

It's the remastered version in HD 1080p.

Great series, but still too expensive at $60.

Yes, especially since it can be streamed on multiple platforms. I guess if you don't have any streaming subscriptions, then buying it makes sense?
