Product Description

ST NG DVD BOXSET Season 6 (Disc 1)-

From Amazon.co.uk

As the sixth season of Star Trek: The Next Generation went into production, everyone knew that attentions would soon be permanently divided by the debut of Deep Space Nine. Sure enough that meant crossovers ("Birthright"), guest stars and references back and forth. The sense of baton-passing drew the TNG family closer, however. Directorial debuts begun in Season 5 allowed for repeat group-huddle ownership of several shows. Jonathan Frakes bettered "The Quality of Life" by "The Chase", which finally offered an explanation why most races in the Trek universe are humanoid with knobbly foreheads. Patrick Stewart crowbarred a Western into the franchise in "A Fistful of Datas". LeVar Burton introduced the far more exciting Riker clone Thomas in "Second Chances". But here we still find that inability to follow through a good idea, since it was intended for Tom to replace Will. Barclay outstayed his welcome with a lacklustre "Ship in a Bottle" (despite a hammy cameo from Stephanie Beacham) after he'd injected creepiness into "Realm of Fear". The same happened with Q and the painfully weak "True Q" contrasted by the philosophically challenging "Tapestry", where Picard faced the decisions of his youth.

Yet ultimately the year provided more memorable moments than either year 5 did or year 7 would. There was the fun of a pint-sized Starfleet in "Rascals", the shocking comment on political torture in "Chain of Command", the endless Matrix-like guessing game of reality in "Frame of Mind", and even a jokey genre nod often called "Die Hard Picard" instead of "Starship Mine". The two biggest attention-drawing moments came via stellar cameos. There was the bittersweet sight of James Doohan revisiting the original Enterprise Bridge on "Relics", then a quick contribution by Stephen Hawking in the cliff-hanger "Descent". Both were attempts at keeping TNG the connoisseur's Trek incarnation of choice. --Paul Tonks

Format: DVD
Although it wasn't the strongest season for Trek, the sixth season did feature a number of outstanding episodes and performances worth noting. The most notable episode is the two part The Chain of Command. Picard, Worf and Crusher are sent on an covert operation to discover if the Cardassians are creating biological weapons. The Enterprise is given a new commander (no, not Riker)which creates quite a bit of tension in the ranks. Picard is captured and tortured by a Cardassian interrogater (played with relish by the marvelous David Warner). It's a great example of what Trek:TNG did best--deal with complex issues and areas of gray morality.
Ship in a Bottle returns the AI endowed Moriarty from season two. He returns when a glitch in the holodeck Holmes program is being repaired by Barclay. It's a marvelous episode that, again, does what Trek always did best. The idea (unlike some of the sixth season episodes)is well developed and directed well. The performances are all outstanding. The conclusion may be a bit pat but it's quite imaginative and concludes a brief but interesting story telling arc.
The transfers are beautiful although the image is occasionally soft on a couple of episodes. There aren't any noticable analog artifacts nor are there some of the compression problems apparent on some of the earlier sets. The early CGI imagery is more apparent due to the high quality DVD transfer (and particularly on a big screen television). It's not a problem but it does date the series a bit. Nevertheless, the effects work is, on the whole, outstanding.
The remixed 5.1 dolby digital sound is terrific. There's considerable improvement over the previous stereo surround version that appeared on the video cassettes. The extras are quite nice as well.

Format: DVD
The Sixth Season of TNG starts out (like seasons 4 and 5 before it) by wrapping up the cliffhangar from the previous season. In "Time's Arrow, Part II" the crew are stranded in 19th Century San Fransisco, trying to stop a group of aliens from "harvesting" energy from humans. The season continues with 2 appearances from Mr Barclay (and the return of Moriarty), 2 visits from Q, Counselor Troi disguised as a Romulan, a Wild west adventure for Worf, Four crewmembers turning into children and trying to re-take the ship from the Ferengi, a duplicate Riker, the reappearance of a Klingon God, the Enterprise and a Romulan Warbird being frozen in time, a crossover episode with DS9 (featuring Dr Bashir), and the return of Data's brother Lore (and his Rogue Borg Soldiers) in the Season finale, "Descent". But the two best things about season six are: 1) "Relics" - the fantastic episode which featured the return of Scotty and 2) This is the only season WITHOUT Wesley Crusher. Enjoy.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I suppose there are two aspects to any review of a Blu Ray that you will no doubt be looking for: technical and content.

Techincal: I cannot fault this Blu Ray in any way technically. True, I am no videophile (is that even a word? Well, it should be) or audiophile but have been totally impressed by the quality of both the video and the audio in this set. I have been boring everyone I meet with how this Blu Ray compares to the DVD release like day compares to night. But it really is that profound. The colours on the uniforms pop. The alien make up really comes alive (I am thinking specifically of the make up for Jo'Bril in Suspicions, but it applies equally to all of the episodes). Playing the audio through my soundbar, you have a real sense of being there. I have never been so appreciative of starship background hum before.

Content: I cannot extol the virtues of the storytelling in this season. Season 6, for me, is the epitome of what TNG is all about. All of the main characters get a good crack of the whip. Even Troi (I must admit not my favourite crew member) has relatively a weak episode (Man of the People) which is then far than outweighed by the excellently executed 'Face of the Enemy'. Picard gets a love interest (Lessons), no doubt helping him overcome the trauma of having been tortured by the Cardassians (Chain of Command) and having been killed and resurrected (Tapestry). Dr. Crusher almost gets a court-martial (Suspicions). Riker find his transporter-doppelgänger (Second Chances) and goes ever so slightly insane (Frame of Mind). Geordie is unlucky in love again (Aquiel). Worf and Data get some good character development in 'Birthright', which features a crossover of Dr. Bashir from DS9.

Overall, an excellent season of Star Trek, by anyone's standards. Yes, it is expensive, but did you ever buy Star Trek on video at £12.99 for two episodes? And how does the quality compare?

Format: DVD
Kicking off with the second part of the enjoyable 2-parter TIMES ARROW, The Next Generation's sixth season is in my opinion one of the series best (if not the best). It strikes the right balance between light-hearted whimsy (A FISTFUL OF DATAS), psychological thriller (FRAME OF MIND - boasting an acting tour de force from Frakes), solid science fiction (Timescape), action (STARSHIP MINE) and finally possibly TNG's darkest work CHAIN OF COMMAND 1 & 2 (which is a wonderful 2 parter because largely of Stewarts stunning performance and also because of the interesting effect of the Enterprise captain being replaced by Jellico - a man just a little short on charm).
