Like many, I thought The Next Generation had been filmed using video cameras in the late '80s and early '90s and that the inherent qualities of that recording medium resulted in the bland, low-contrast, soft focus episodes that we all watched on TV at that time. So I never expected to see TNG getting remastered for high-definition TV in the way that TOS got a couple of years ago.

But it turns out that TNG was shot on film (and transferred to tape for broadcast), so that meant it could get some remastering. The real issue was with the special effects which were all model shots filmed on video in standard resolution. If TNG was to be released in high definition, then all the effects shots would have to be redone from scratch. And that's exactly what was done!

Next Generation: The Next Level is a sampler Blu-Ray with episodes from different series showcasing just what a phenomenal job has been done in remastering TNG for a 21st Century audience. There's a more in-depth review over on my Home Cinema Addict site.
