Synopsis


The second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation brings changes in both cast and appearance. Denise Crosby's Tasha Yar had been killed in the first season episode Skin of Evil, giving Worf (Michael Dorn) a promotion to the new head of security. Meanwhile, Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) has departed for Starfleet Medical, bringing the prickly Dr. Katherine Pulaski (L.A. Law's Diana Muldaur) to the Enterprise. Whoopi Goldberg also begins frequent guest appearances as Guinan, the warm and mysterious host at Ten-Forward. Eagle-eyed viewers will also notice new uniforms for the Enterprise crew, plus Jonathan Frakes's Commander Riker sporting a welcome beard that will stay for the rest of the series. The show's sophomore year introduces Data's interest in Sherlock Holmes (Elementary, Dear Data), as well as Worf's former love K'Ehleyr (The Emmisary). But the 1988-89 season is most notable for the addition of the Borg, a chilling race whose sole aim is to acquire new technology through takeover. Introduced in Q Who?, these half-mechanical, half-organic beings go on to drive the series' best episodes as well as it strongest big-screen offering, Star Trek: First Contact. Time travel (Time Squared) and holodeck adventures (Manhunt) abound, but this season also addresses serious issues, particularly in The Measure of a Man. This Data-centric episode finds the android (Brent Spiner) in danger of being disassembled by a Starfleet scientist, with Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) as his champion while Riker was forced to be the prosecutor. The second season also boasts guest appearances from Seymour Cassel, Teri Hatcher, Joe Piscopo, and Bill Campbell, who was the runner-up for the role of Riker. ~ Kimber Myers

    Star Trek: TNG - Season 2 is vastly improved from the show's first season run. Personally, I always felt the first season was a bit "disjointed;" however, Season 2 smooths out those imperfections and hits the viewer with some quality story-telling. The fan-favorite "Q-Who?" introduces fans to the most notorious Star Trek villain (possibly next to the Klingons) in the Borg. It's one of the few episodes/stories that TNG crew seem out of their element and unsure of how to handle adversity. Definite classic of all TNG episodes.

    A can't miss season, very excellent quality on bluray. Granted the PQ is off from the other seasons, it's still the best this season has ever looked. Despite the questionable casting decisions this season, we get some excellent story telling and development of our favorite characters.

    This is a good release however not as good as Season 1's video quality. This is due to CBS' decision to alternate restoration work between two companies instead of keeping it all with one. Season 2 is a bit better and grows more from Season 1 in terms of story and development.

    The silhouette on the cover is really cool looking and a definite plus, but the case is very poor quality and have had issues with broken teeth that hold the disks in place

    Paramount continues releasing Star Trek: The Next Generation on Blu ray with fantastic results. The second season is shorter than the rest (22 episodes) due to a writers strike.

    After viewing the first two seasons on Blu-Ray I can appreciate the work that was put into the sets and costumes for the show. The original broadcast never did it justice.
