I'm unsure on the whole physical media future.
I know a few people who stream a bit of stuff, but a lot still like to buy their 'favourite' films and TV series still physically.
Anyway - re TNG, maybe they could pick a dozen or so 'Prime Candidate' episodes and work on them then do a test release to gauge the reaction and sales potential for then going into the full seasons.
Although, I'm not really sure that (hypothetically) adding scenes of Wolf 359 would necessarily make 'The Best of Both Worlds' any better as an episode. It would just add more bangs they couldn't do the first time around.
