Although the second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1988-9) was curtailed by a writers’ strike, its 22 episodes nevertheless saw some refreshing new developments. Tasha Yar was gone, giving Worf more room to flex his muscles as Chief Security Officer; Geordi was promoted to Head of Engineering; Whoopi Goldberg’s mysterious Guinan presided benevolently over the crew’s rest area, Ten Forward; Dr. Crusher was replaced by the far more acerbic McCoy-like Dr. Pulaski; and mischievous super-entity Q returned to introduce Picard and the Enterprise crew to their greatest nemesis, The Borg. By the end of a transitional season the show had settled down enough to be acknowledged by all as a worthy successor to the 1960s original.

On the DVD: Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 2 comes packaged exactly like Season 1 in a solid metallic-style plastic outer case with a fold-out cardboard inner, although because of the fewer episodes this time there are only six discs not seven. Sound throughout is vivid Dolby Digital 5.1, with a full frame (1.33:1) picture that occasionally shows its age. Once again the menus neatly imitate the Enterprise’s own computer interfaces. Disc 6 contains the extra features: the "Mission Overview--Year 2" introduces the new characters and has producer Rick Berman revealing "We were all filled with piss and vinegar" at the success of the show; the "Selected Crew Analysis" continues the same thread interviewing Patrick Stewart, Levar Burton, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis and Diana Muldaur; the "Departmental Briefing" gives some background on special effects, writing, costumes, props and music; "Memorable Missions" highlights specific episodes and guest stars; finally, and best of all, is "Inside Starfleet Archives", a guided tour with Penny Juday around Paramount’s warehouses stuffed full of Star Trek props and memorabilia.--Mark Walker

Season 2 of Star Trek: The Next Generation improves on the first series by introducing occasionally stronger character based shows and situations. While Tasha Yar is missed, and to a lesser extent Doctor Crusher, we're introduced to 2 new characters. Dr. Pulaski and Guinan. Personally I always enjoyed Pulaski shows, she was one of the only characters that brought a bit of conflict into the programme. There was never enough coming and going of new blood into the Star Trek series (either in front or behind the camera). Guinan (and the new location for her "Ten Forward" - a great setting for comedy/social moments) added more life and mystery into the show. It was a shame she wasn't able to appear in more episodes in the later parts of the series (she does have a cameo role in Star Trek Nemesis).
The episodes themselves were extremely varied. Due to the writer's strike, the season was cut short to 22 episodes rather than the full 26 ending with the appalling "bottle show", 'Shades of Grey' (Plot summary: Riker in a coma and Deanna "looking worried" while Pulaski puts copious L.E.Ds on his forehead). "The Royale" was also truly terrible. There were some storming episodes though, the best being "Q Who." This episode had everything: Q, the introduction of the Borg, Guinan, great special effects and a superb score by Ron Jones. Other great episodes were "Contagion" and "Time Squared"
This box set has everything you could wish for (that's why I'm giving it 5 stars): remastered picture and Dolby Digital sound, one hour of new interviews and documentaries, and some really awesome DVD menus.

By R. Flux
Two decades after the orginal series, the 'The Next Generation' was introduced back to the picture box once again. But for where the 1st series of 'TNG' had clung tight to the peramiters of the orginal show. Now the 2nd series of 'TNG' began to stand on it so own feet to give its self a new identity.
Gone (thank godd!)was the over use of make-up on male actors. Plus slight alterations of 'Costumes'(Worfs shash etc..), 'Music', 'Writing', 'Special effects' and 'Cast'(Whoopi Goldberg joined the crew as A qurky bartender and Dr.Crusher is repaced by Dr.Palaski) all added up to give 'TNG' a deeper vision in the Star Trek universe.

The stories, More Imortantly Exel !!!!
With 'A MATTER OF HONOR', Riker joins a Kligon Bird of Prey as its 1st officer.
'THE MEASURE OF A MAN', Data's rights as a person are questioned.
'Q WHO' Enters the 1st appearance of science-fictions most popular creations, The BORG !.
'PEAK PERFORMANCE' Is also my personal series favorite. Riker is given the opportunity to Captain an aging Star ship against the Enterprise in a training exercise. Unfortunately the Feringi turn up to put a spanner in the works.
There are 22 episodes instsead of the normal 26 because of a writers strike and the last episode called 'SHADES OF GREY'is more of a re-cap of the last two series.
The DVD set is well produced, with the series on 6 discs. Containing a host of extra features on the 6th disc.
The plastic sliver case looks very striking & is more impressive than the American version box sets.
Booklet that comes with the 2nd series it self is rather bleak. It could of easliy had more information about behind the scenes, cast and crew.Plus the photos look as if riped from the internet.
In short this is a impressive set of stories, which are mixed with hummor, action, drama and a little room for thinking too!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have 28 July 2006
I know there are knockers with The Next Generation but if you are a trekkie, then it is just one of the things you have to have.

Not every episode is great, but it is still a must have and a bargain too at the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Growing Pains! 4 Aug 2008
Star Trek: The Next Generation Season Two definatly showed a more comfortable pace than first year, with some great episodes such as "Q-Who?" and "The Measer of a Man" but was let down by episodes like "Loud as a Whisper" and the un-watchable junk that was "Shades of Grey" which were horrible additions and arguably some of the worst episodes of the series. If you are a fan of the show you can't go without getting the second installment in your collection, but it won't be the best you'll get!

Here are the episodes from Season 2:

The Child (***)
Where Silence Has Lease (****)
Elementary, Dear Data (***)
The Outrageous Okona (**)
Loud as a Whisper (*)
The Schizoid Man (**)
Un-natural Selection (**)
A Matter of Honour (****)
The Measure of a Man (*****)
The Dauphin (**)
Contagion (**)
The Royale (**)
Time Squared (***)
The Icarus Factor (**)
Pen Pals (**)
Q Who? (*****)
Samaritan Snare (**)
Up the Long Ladder (*)
Manhunt (**)
The Emissary (***)
Peak Performance (****)
Shades of Grey (*)

A Mixed Bag but overall some good episodes; be warned the season climax that was "Shades of Grey" is exceptionally bad and don't let that turn you off the show as the third season is so much better.
