Season six is many things, it's the first season where we will see two Star Trek series on air at the same time! In January 1993 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine started off and we will see the Enterprise docking at the space station in the episode "Birthright". Unfortunately it has been confirmed at the moment the CBS digital team will not continue with the HD transfer for DS9! So all you DS9 fans, don't count on it in the near future to see DS9 get a HD transfer.

 

Getting back to season 6 of The Next Generation, it has some great stories but also some weaker ones. Last season we spoke of visits from the TOS cast, this season we will see another TOS cast member, Scotty (James Doohan) in the episode "Relics". "Relics" is of course a fan favourite, but also the fantastic "Chain of Command" two-parter, the first part of the "Birthright" episode where we meet doctor Bashir from Deep Space Nine. Part two (of "Birthright") is considerably weaker. Other great season 6 stories are: "Face of the Enemy", "Tapestry", "Starship Mine", "Frame of Mind", "Second Chances", "Time's Arrow",  a First Full of Data's" and many more.

 

The blu-ray itself is perhaps the best one yet! I can't think of anything negative about it, it simply looks astonishing. It's pity CBS Digital does not move forward with DS9 and Voyager so we could enjoy the Trek Universe totally in HD! The sound quality is also near perfect and as we've come used to, the set is again loaded with special features. The most interesting ones are: Beyond the Five Year Mission - The Evolution of Star Trek: The Next Generation Part One: The Lithosphere (HD, 24:52) Beyond the Five Year Mission - The Evolution of Star Trek: The Next Generation Part Two: The Biosphere (HD, 29:32) Beyond the Five Year Mission - The Evolution of Star Trek: The Next Generation Part Three: The Noosphere (HD, 29:59). Below you can see what's the content of those features.

 

All in all a fine set, one of the best yet I think. Now we can look forward to one more (old) Trek blu-ray release, season 7, but after that it's done, the way it is now there will be not be any blu-ray releases for DS9 and/or Voyager. Perhaps this will change somewhere in the future but not at this time, apparently the CBS was counting on a bigger sale on the TNG sets and like me they know TNG was the most popular Trek series so from their point of view you actually can understand it. That also means I will take out my DVD set of Deep Space Nine and Voyager very soon to re-watch them both. I'm not gonna wait and hope for a miracle.

This is the third season which has been released this year on blu-ray, with only two more seasons to go next year we are of course hoping Star Trek: Deep Space Nine will be next! Back to season five however, season three was the high point of the series for me personally and although I still enjoyed the rest of the seasons, for me, they were not as good as it's third. That said, there still are many wonderful stories told in the following seasons, like season five, which is probably my second favourite TNG season.

 

Redemption Part 2 is a very satisfying conclusion to a two-part story. Darmok, the second episode is also very intriguing. Of course the introduction of Ensign Ro in the episode which is also titled Ensign Ro is very strong. Other great season five stories are: Unification parts 1&2; A Matter of Time; Cause and Effect; Ethics; The First Duty; I, Borg; The Inner Light and the season 5 finale Time's Arrow. So many great episodes, from action to emotionally charged character stories, from drama to suspense stories.

 

As said above, Ensign Ro was introduced in season five and she turned out to be a popular character, played by a great actress Michelle Forbes. Also the presence of the original character Spock is of course a high point of this season. We already seen McCoy in the pilot episode, Spocks' father Sarek and now we get to see Spock in two great episodes "Unification", the season where everything began to fall into place.

 

Till now season three and Season one were, PQ wise, the best seasons, almost everything looked amazing on those two sets. But season five is at least equally good, if not better! It's like watching a new movie or a new tv series on blu-ray. Unfortunately 2 minutes and 20 seconds of the original camera negative could not be found. "The First Duty" required 37 seconds to be upscaled (at the start of the episode) while "Power Play" has 1 minute 41 seconds of Ten-Forward scenes ported over from the SD. But even those scenes look quite decent.

 

Like with the other seasons, there is plenty to watch out for in the special features department. You can find all the extra's that where also on the original DVD release but there's also a lot new material, shot in HD, to be found on this set, like "In Conversation", the music of Star Trek: The Next Generation. A sit down with the composers. A two-part special feature both about 30 minutes, some deleted scenes in HD and also audio commentary on "The Inner Light" and also a Gag reel.

 

What I said earlier, my favourite season is probably the third, but season five is also one of it's finest and it's like watching to a new Star Trek show, the PQ is so fantastic, it's a must to rewatch Star Trek: The Next Generation on blu-ray!

Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 4

For a full review + screenshots: Star Trek: TNG - Season 4

 

Release date [US/Canada] July 30, 2013

Release date [UK] July 29, 2013

 

Season 3 ended on a huge cliff-hanger with The Best of Both Worlds. It was never been done, it was amazing. Part two of The Best of Both Worlds wasn't as engaging as the the first part but still very entertaining. The season (fourth) starts out strong with episodes like "The Best of Both Worlds part two", "Family", where Picard returns to Earth to his brother and "Brothers", where Data returns to his "father" and meets his brother Lore again. Season 4, perhaps not so strong has the third, is still very engaging, season Four saw a gentle shift in tone as executive producer Michael Piller started to steer TNG towards featuring more emotional and often serialized storytelling. Plotlines such as Worf’s discommendation - left hanging in Season 3 - were suddenly picked up and developed into a recurring story arc throughout the fourth year with the burgeoning Duras/Romulan plot hanging over the Federation.

 

A lot of changes in the writers room and also season 4 means the departure of ensign Wesley Crusher with the episode "Final Mission". I never really liked Wesley Crusher in the past but when rewatching TNG on Blu-Ray I was surprised to find out I do not "not like" Wesley so much anymore. Maybe it's because I've seen him as a grown up person in Eureka and The Big Bang Theory, in any case, pity he left the show this season. There are quite a few gems in season 4 which stand out, some we already named earlier, The Best of Both Worlds; Family; Brothers. Also episodes like Q-pid; Data's Day; The Wounded & The Drumhead are worth mentioning.

 

The transfer to HD was done outside of the CBS studio, like season 2. It was done by another company (than season 2), Modern VideoFilm, and although it really does look better than season 2, it is not as good as seasons 1 & 3 which were done by CBS Digital. All in the name of time this huge project is not entirely being done by CBS Digital. I think fans rather would wait a while longer and have the best possible quality than be disappointed like the way season 2 turned out to be. As I said, season 4 looks way better but it could have been better, like the third season.

 

It should be noted that both parts of "The Best of Both Worlds" and "Redemption" were done wholly by CBS Digital to ensure consistency across those two-parters. Modern Video took care of the 24 episodes sandwiched in between. 

 

Still I can only recommend season 4 to any Trek fan, it still looks stunning, it unbelievable that this is 23 year old material, it looks like it was made yesterday. My only regret remains that the show was broadcast 4:3, I don't like the bars on each side, especially after you've seen the menu, space taking up your whole tv screen, it looks fantastic.

Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 3

For a full review + screenshots: Star Trek: TNG - Season 3

 

Release date [Worldwide] April/May 2013

 

With the third season everything seemed to fell in place, is widely regarded by critics and fans alike as the show's finest year and a definitive turning point when TNG became the "well-oiled machine" it would be for the remainder of its time on air. This season was definately a turning point for The Next Generation, there are perhaps only a few episodes which are average but most of them are very good to even excellent. Episodes like "The Enemy", "The Defector", "Yesterday's Enterprise", "The Offspring", "Sarek" & The Best Of Both Worlds and that's only handful but the list goes on.

 

What's also a big plus is the return of Doctor Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) who returns after being replaced by Doctor Pulaski (Diana Muldaur) in the second season. I think in the end of the second season I got used to Doctor Pulaski but I still prefer Dr Crusher. Head writer Maurice Hurley's departures which allows the appointment of Michael Piller to the writing room, an event which triggers the introduction of a variety of familiar Trek alumni including writers Ronald D. Moore, Ira Steven Behr and René Echevarria. For me and probably for many others season 3 could well be the best of what TNG has to offer. The quality remains over the next seasons but it's third may well be it's finest.

 

Looking at the finished product, it is clear that CBS Digital's diligence has thoroughly paid off. After the somewhat uneven remastering of Season Two by the external company HTV-Illuminate, it's a joy to see TNG Remastered back in the hands of CBS Digital and sparkling as if it were filmed yesterday. What we, as fans, sometimes forget is what an enormous task it is to transfer these seasons onto

blu-ray with the best possible quality, we really should be thankful to CBS they are willing to do this and hopefully will convince other company's to do the same with TV series from the 90's. Season 3 looks fantastic indeed, the same picture quality as seen with the first season, perhaps a tiny bit better!

 

Again, like the first two seasons, season 3 is loaded with special features, you will be busy for hours watching it all. The one I most look out for is the writers staff who reunite in the same way the cast did for season 2, “Inside the Writers' Room” with writers Brannon Braga, Ronald D. Moore, Naren Shankar and René Echevarria are joined by Seth MacFarlane to delve into some of the creative choices responsible for the best and worst of Star Trek. This is a set you definately need to purchase!

Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Best of Both Worlds

For a full review + screenshots: Star Trek: TNG - The Best of Both Words

 

Release date [Worldwide] April/May 2013

 

After 2 seasons of TNG HD CBS decided to release "The Best of Both Worlds" as a single disc release on top of the season boxsets! "The Best of Both Worlds" was a watershed moment in Star Trek history, offering up the franchise's first true cliffhanger and thus CBS probably thought to delight the Star Trek fan to release this fabulous feature lenght episode seperately from the season sets as well as on the season sets. Some say they did just to earn some extra cash, perhaps that also is valid but why not, CBS is spending lots of money transfering TNG to HD so I really don't mind they did that, in fact, I love it! It's a nice collectable for a Star Trek fan and it's a joy to watch that one as a feature length episode without breaks.

 

Of course this can also be a good introduction for fans to TNG on Blu-Ray who not yet have purchased the season sets for whatever reason, it's very affordable and may yet result in a purchase of the season box sets which is also what CBS probably hopes for! And to be frank, so am I because I really want DS9 to be the next series to receive the HD transfer.

 

The picture quality is simply stunning, as it's been for the first 2 seasons...and also the third. Season 2 is probably the weakest of them all picture quality wise, but still holds up well for the most part. There are also a few special features on this singe disc release of "The Best of Both Worlds", of course not as much as you are used to on a season 2 but more than enough for a single disc release if you ask me.

Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 2

For a full review + screenshots: Star Trek: TNG - Season 2

 

Release date [Worldwide] December 2012

 

After a very successful first season release on Blu-Ray we finally see the second season coming to Blu-Ray. Two new cast members beam on board. The first one is Dr. Pulaski (Diana Muldaur) who replaces Dr. Beverly Crusher and secondly Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg), who is the bartender in TenForward, which is also new on board the Enterprise. The season starts with a fairly bland episode "The Child" but it gets better from there. Still not the best season but season 2 has a few gems which elevate the overall season. To name a few: "Elementary, Dear Data", "The Measure of a Man", "Time Squared" & "Q Who?. Early on, when the first trailers came online, the fans immediately expressed their huge disappointment in the PQ quality of the second season, which was far less impressive then season 1.

 

Mainly because of the fact that it's very time consuming transferring TNG from SD to HD, CBS decided to get help from outside, for season 2 that meant HTV-Illuminate. Apparrently they did not do as a good job as the people from CBS. Although it perhaps is true that season 2 looks not as astonishing as the first season but still it looks amazing, granted the SFX is less impressive but still 20x better than the DVD's. As a result HTV-Illuminate won't participate any further on the rest of the seasons. As I said, it still looks amazing, I'm glad I've purchased season 2, it's still really worth it. Like the first season it's loaded with special features. One of the jewels in the crown of these bonus features has to be the must-see cast reunion which brings together the entire principal cast for an emotional roundtable chat moderated by Robert Meyer Burnett and coinciding with the show’s 25th Anniversary. An other one is a new interview with Diana Muldaur (Dr. Pulaski) and of course the extended version of "The Measure of a Man".

Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 1

Star Trek: TNG Blu-Ray

For a full review + screenshots: Star trek: TNG - Season 1

 

Release date [Worldwide] July, 2012

 

After the debut of Star Trek TOS on Blu-Ray, we were all hoping that also other Star Trek would see the light of Blu-Ray day! When TNG was announced last year and with the release of The Next Level, we had a taste of how it was going to look! It was awesome!

 

Star Trek: The Next Generation never looked better, it's not just a minor upgrade, it's a very, very impressive enhancement. The episodes never looked better, the special effects look terrific. The Enterprise D never looked so beautiful! It is presented in 1.33:1 aspect ratio. Okay, season 1 may not be the strongest, but there are a bunch of good episodes in it. Episodes like : Encounter at Farpoint, Datalore, Hide and Q, We'll always have Paris and more.

 

Season 1 is mainly character building, so certainly, some episodes are mediocre at best but seeing them again on Blu-Ray really makes it worth it. Another plus is the packaging, a standard Blu-Ray case with a slip, nothing fancy, simple packaging, perfect if all Trek series get a Blu-Ray release because we collecters haven't got the room for bulky releases! Regarding the special features, a lot to sink your teeth in, see below.

Once the show was green-lit, challenges arose. Inception examines the raw process of developing the series and ideas for it, including Enterprise and prop design, character development, placing a Klingon on the bridge of a Federation starship, and casting Patrick Stewart over Stephen Macht for the role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

Star Trek: The Next Generation - Sample Disc

For a full review + screenshots : Blu-Ray.com/Star Trek TNG - The Next Level

 

Release date [Worldwide] January 31, 2012

 

We already got Star Trek TOS on Blu-Ray which is stunning but now we also welcome Star Trek TNG on Blu-Ray. Who would have thought this to be happening, originally recorded on video just like all the other shows from the 90's like The X-Files and Babylon 5. It already was announced in May of last year, a possible release of TNG on Blu. It will be a huge task to re-master all 7 seasons to HD.

 

To make the wait bearable, Paramount released a sample disc with 3 episodes on it, the doublelength pilot Encounter at Farpoint, The Inner Light & Sins of a Father. The Picture quality is amazing, details which were, till now, not visible to the naked eye but this Blu-Ray will change that, the details are really remarkable! The picture quality and sound quality are superb in comparison to the DVD release. Pity there aren't many special features, probably are saving it for the full season releases. The first season is expected to be releases somewhere in the summer. Although it's only a sample, it's recommended to any SF fan.
