Star Trek is easily my favorite show, and this sixth season of Next Generation contains two excellent 2-part episodes (Chain of Command and Birthright). It also begins and ends with two other 2-part episodes (Time's Arrow and Descent), since TNG heavily relied on cliff-hangers to torture its audience during its summer hiatus. The double episodes also seemed to tell grander tales and had bigger budgets, so they were actually more like movies.
This blu-ray rendition makes the DVD version pale by comparison, and my VHS collection is now a joke. Blu-ray is the only-way I'll ever watch Star Trek again!
So far there hasn't been a single episode in this package I haven't enjoyed watching, and I am still watching the fifth disc out of six Blu-ray discs.
The picture quality on the Blu-ray discs continue to be excellent, a better picture quality than I had seen on my standard television set back when the series was still being filmed.
The only thing I'm still disappointed with, and I have been disappointed with this shortcoming ever since I bought the Third Season Blu-rays, was the episodes had not been filmed in the "HDTV" widescreen dimensions.
The HD presentation has been excellent in the past season Bluray editions and this season continues to show the colors and clarity well. You have to appreciate the era the series was originally created to air in since a lot of the alien make up and set design was built to show on a lower resolution screen to look past that detail shows more of the imperfections with the improved picture quality. All the DVD extras are include, and the new features help to reflect on some of the background stories going on during the production. Watching the stories you get a sense that this was a golden peice of TV history.
As a lifelong Star Trek fan and as a devotee of the Next Generation series in particular, I can wholeheartedly recommend the 6th season of TNG (as they call it among fans). All the cast members give outstanding performances and we gett some special guesats as well, including James Doohan and the return of John De Lancie as the mischievous "Q"
A must have for any Trekkie. As Jean Luc Picard would say "Make it So".....
In its sixth season, TNG continued its strong storytelling with a number of popular and classic episodes from start to cliffhanger finish. This set continues to great job Paramount has done with remastered effects versions as well as original archive episodes. The previous special features carry over, along with new material.
Star Trek The Next Generation is an AWESOME television series and this particular season is no exception!! I enjoy watching this over and over again. Also, the price was absolutely great......Never thought I could get a full season for such a great price!! Thank You Best Buy!
