    Scrapping the original series' limited "five-year mission" for a more ambitious ongoing one, Star Trek: The Next Generation aims high from its first episode. The Enterprise D is captained by Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), a leader more reserved and thought-driven than the beloved Captain Kirk. Other notable crew members include Klingon lieutenant Worf (Michael Dorn), security chief Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby), android Data (Brent Spiner), empathic ship's counselor Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), first officer Will Riker (Jonathan Frakes) VISOR-wearing lieutenant Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton), Chief Medical Officer Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden), and her genius son Wesley (Wil Wheaton). Though the season features plenty of callbacks to its predecessor - an appearance from DeForest Kelley as "Bones" McCoy, a return of Romulans in the season finale, and an episode-long homage to the original series episode The Naked Time - Star Trek: The Next Generation also offers a number of its own inventions. The two-part premiere, "Encounter at Far Point, introduces audiences to the popular character of Q (John DeLancie), who returns in Hide and Q and other episodes throughout the series. The season also introduces audiences to family members of the crew, including Data's brother Lore (also played by Spiner) and Deanna Troi's mother Lwaxana (Majel Barrett, the wife of series creator Gene Roddenberry and the voice of the ship's computer). An attempt to turn the aurally gifted Ferengi into the Federation's new nemesis might have failed in The Last Outpost and The Battle, but an innovative danger was presented in the addition of the holodeck in The Big Goodbye. The first season featured guest appearances from the Mamas and the Papas singer Michelle Phillips, genre favorite Michael Berryman, and future Deep Space Nine star Armin Shimmerman. ~ Kimber Myers

      First taste of TNG in HD

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      So happy that TNG is coming to HD, when I started watching it, I was shocked.... I forgot how important the 1st episode is. With all the cast so young and getting to know each other, and cameo by: ADMIRAL - Leonard McCoy - (“Bones”)- DeForest Kelley... The HD is better the some of the Movies, due in part that they are from the original film strips... why they did not do this for the movies I do not know.... At the opening credits right before the Enterprise D goes to warp... You can see people walking around the bridge/conference room very cool... Bottom line every Star Trek Fan need to pick this up.....

      Great teaser of BluRay update

      • My Best Buy Premier Silver MemberElite Plus Member

      After watching the episodes on this disc, I can't wait for the full BluRay seasons to come out. Everything was so crisp and clear! A friend of mine had lent me TNG Season 1 on DVD just before I purchased this. I could definitely tell the difference between the DVD version of Farpoint and the BluRay version. Only downsides? That the BluRay versions aren't out yet, and that they'll be more expensive than the DVD versions.

      I originally bought this for the sound since I had just upgraded to a 7.1 receiver. What really blew me away was the amazing picture quality! Everything looks so much more lifelike. I've seen all these episodes numerous times, but it was like watching it for the first time all over again. I even noticed they put some new scenes in that aren't in the TV episodes. And yes, the sound quality is also amazing. I hope they do the entire series.
