Season 4 of Star Trek: The Next Generation seemed like the year of the family. After quickly resolving the breathtaking cliffhanger of "The Best of Both Worlds", the show took pains to show some of what the Federation was fighting for. We meet Picard's brother, Data's father, Tasha's sister and Worf's adoptive human parents, plus an old flame with a surprise son in tow. The Klingon heritage sub-plot that begins here and builds to the cliffhanger finale ("Redemption") would continue to the show's end and through into Worf' reappearance in Deep Space Nine.

The year also explored the implications of Data, Lwaxana Troi, Geordi and Dr Crusher being in love, while Miles O'Brien (given a first name at last) married Keiko. There were old friends revisited: the ubiquitous Q in a hilarious Robin Hood romp ("Qpid"), perennial screw-up Reg Barclay ("Nth Degree") and even the mysterious Traveller from Season One's "Where No One Has Gone Before" (played by the actor who was nearly cast as Data). There were new races introduced who would have an important bearing on Trek's destiny: the Cardassians and the Trill. Most of all, though, there were the one-off stories that impressed: "Clues", with its memory-loss mystery; "Night Terrors", with some genuine frights; and "Identity Crisis", with possibly the only time Trek technology really helped Geordi solve a puzzle. Then right at the end, reinforcing the year's familial theme, Denise Crosby returned as her own half-Romulan daughter. --Paul Tonks


Picking up decades after Gene Roddenberry's legendary original Star Trek, The Next Generation follows the intergalactic adventures of Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his crew aboard an all-new USS Enterprise. This phenomenally successful follow-up, also created by Roddenberry, began airing in 1987 and ran until 1994. Episodes include: 'Family', 'Suddenly Human', 'Future Imperfect', 'Data's Day', 'Devil's Due', 'First Contact', 'Identity Crisis', 'In Theory', and many more.

Season 4 of TNG is my favourite season of the series. Frequently, its a lot less bouncy & action orientated than season 3, but instead we have strong guest actors putting in powerful performances - for example, David Ogden Stiers as Dr Timicin in 'Half a Life' - a desperately moving episode. They also have a bit of fun with the show for the first time, with episodes like 'Future Imperfect', 'The Nth Degree' and 'Clues'. Then of course there are the powerhouses like Best of Both Worlds part II, 'Redemption part 1', 'The Wounded' and 'The Drumhead'. Most of all though I think I enjoy the reflective episodes, like 'Family', 'In Theory' and 'Data's Day'. Paramount are releasing these boxsets at a phenomenal rate, so I'm forced to pick which seasons to buy. Season 4 was always at the top of my list.

By now, you would either have seen Star Trek: The Next Generation and liked it or not, so the fourth season of a show is probably not the best point to start but in other ways it is. Starting with the conclusion of Best Of Both Worlds, which wrapped up the Borg Invasion story a bit to quickly for my liking, this was still a great story. There were some great stories in this series along with some not so great tales. My stand out episodes in season four include Family, a touching story where Picard has to deal with the Borg equivalent of rape and how his life will continue after, Final Mission, the last listed series of Wesley Crusher and Wounded, a story about a military veteran unable to see past the conflict.
One episode which stands out the most is The Drumhead, concentrating on the trial and persecution of a crew member because of his race. Despite being nearly 12 years old now, this series as a whole produced episodes that are still relivent today. There are some exceptional episodes in this series that have nothing to do with flying spaceships and funny looking aliens but do what Star Trek does best, produces episodes on the human nature. This is a good place to start your star trek experience even if you don't understand at first what is going on.

Format: DVD
Like the year before, season 4 was blessed with several superbly written episodes. There's a good mix of moral, meaning, action and fun, some really clever episodes (Parallels, Remember Me), and plenty of quality charachter development. There is some action (the conclusion to 'Best of Both Worlds, the season finale and 'The Wounded' being obvious examples), but most of the time, the show deals with issues, often very successfully.
Whereas other seasons of The Next Generation had some outstanding, some mediocre, and some absolutely awful episodes, season 4 rarely ventures above or below the 'very very good' mark. This is The Next Generation at it's peak, the seasons before built up to it, the seasons after could never quite emulate this level of success.
Watch out for: 'Reunion', 'Clues', 'Night Terrors', 'The Drumhead', 'Half A Life'
The DVD is packed with the usual features, some already seen interviews, and some new material recorded for the DVD. Quite pricey at the RRP, but at the lower price, it's worth it.

This Season is has a strong theme of Romulan vs. Klingons and The Federation in almost every 2-3 episodes. It's a subtle but effective build-up to the Redemption at the end of the Season. My favourite episodes are "Data's Day", "In Theory", "The Loss", "First Contact" and "Reunion". Most of the episodes in Season Four touches on family, friendship and romantic relationships and we get to see Data really trying to understand and imitate human emotions, behaviours and relationships - it makes me realise how complicated it is to be a human and also at the same time just how special we are to have all the capabilities we do have. In this Season we also see Troi becoming just 'human' for a while which is a bit different to other episodes. Worf suffers personal tragedy but at the same time meeting his son for the first time. Geordi has his scary moments and Reiker gets chased around in hospital after the citizens on a developing planet sees him as a dangerous alien! Picard gets dragged into ancient Klingon rituals and has tormented again buy Q and Vash - the usual fun ensues, and accentuates with appearances by Guinan, Lwaxana, The Traveller, Wesley, Keiko & O'Brien (they get married in the Season).

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 July 2014
Format: DVD

Seven discs. Inside four plastic slimline cases. Inside one bigger cardboard box. Containing all twenty six forty three minute long [approx] episodes of the fourth year of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Language and subtitle options are as follows:

Languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish.

Subtitles: English, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish.

The show had clicked and gotten up to warp speed in it's third year. Would this season be just as good?

Episodes are as follows:

The Best of Both Worlds part two. Action all the way in the continuation to the story begun at the end of last year. Gripping tv that doesn't let up for a second.

Family. Back to Earth as Picard reunites with his family and Worf with his foster parents. An episode with no action, but one that makes sure the events of the previous story aren't forgotten. A great bit of drama.

Brothers. Data meets his creator. But then it becomes a full family reunion. A great showcase for Brent Spiner's acting in an excellent data episode.

Suddenly human. A human boy who has been raised by aliens is rescued. But can he become human again after living the alien way for so long? Not as spectacularly memorable as the last few episodes, it is though nonetheless a decent and thought provoking drama.

Remember Me. Crew members vanish. Only Dr. Crusher remembers them. A capable showcase for her in a decent puzzle episode.

Legacy. Tasha Yar's homeworld. Her sister.
