I hope so too. The TOS Remastered season sets were cheaper then the TOS DVD season sets.

And I still cannot tell quite when they switched over.
Did some reading and apparently the Defiant was all CGI though the station was a model until the very last shoot of the series. I guess they would have to redo all the Defiant shoots then to bring up to true 1080p.

This is a CGI shoot of the Enterprise-D from "These Are the Voyages":

She looks pretty good to me.
