‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ Battle Scenes In HD


A talented Star Trek fan has recreated some of the epic battle scenes from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in full HD.

Outside of whatever HD scenes the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary What We Left Behind restores and makes HD, we probably aren’t going to get real HD Star Trek: Dee Space Nine. The issue is, as always, money.

CBS has given us HD Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and even Star Trek: The Animated Series, because the effects in these shows were practical and animated. This means that the effects can easily be made HD. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager however used computer effects and were made for a non HD world. In order to make those shows  fully HD you’d have to remake all of the effects. The cost of remaking all those effects means that it wouldn’t be financially worth it to release the shows in HD.

One brave YouTube channel however has gone against the grain and is creating some incredible, if short, battle scenes from DS9. You don’t realize how spectacular some of the DS9 battles were until you see them in full HD.

This is the first scene the IRML YouTube channel put out several years ago.

That scene was followed by this one.

And now just recently we have a third DS9 HD battle scene, this time with sound!

These are so amazing, I really wish we could see the entirety of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in HD, but that’s probably the kind foolish dream that Quark would chide Rom about.
