Star Trek: TOS in syndication is already partially in HD. They have been 
converting the eps one by one over time to HD, with new transfers, and also 
redone special effects - mostly the space scenes and some establishing shots on 
planets and stuff. Not all local stations showing this are setup to show it in 
HD, but even if they aren't you can watch the new effects and stuff in standard-def.

Not sure if what CBS is showing online is related to this, or if they are 
showing the original original.
