Product Description

Entire first series of the popular TV show. In 'Encounter at Farpoint', a double length story, the Enterprise encounters a planet that is being threatened by an alien creature - and to make matters worse, Picard is called before the super-being Q to answer questions on behalf of humanity. 'The Naked Now' has the cew infected by a deadly virus which manifests itself in such symptoms as intoxication and promiscuity. 'Code of Honour' sees Tasha kidnapped by an alien who wants her as his mate. 'The Last Outpost' finds the Enterprise coming face-to-face with the Ferengi for the first time. In 'Where No One Has Gone Before', a warp experiment goes wrong and flings the Enterprise into a strange galaxy billions of light-years from its starting point. 'Lonely Among Us' has Picard's body becomes the host for an alien entity. 'Justice' sees the unfortunate Wes Crusher sentenced to death for violating a local custom on an alien world. 'The Battle' finds Picard taking on DaiMan Bok, who wants revenge for the death of his son. 'Hide and Q' has the crew of the Enterprise D plagued once more by the cosmic trickster Q. 'Haven' sees Riker's heart set to break when Deanna is forced into an arranged marriage. In 'The Big Goodbye', Picard indulges his love of film noir detective stories on the holodeck, only to end up trapped when the system malfunctions. 'Datalore' has the crew of the Enterprise discover the component parts of Lore, Data's twin brother, on a devastated planet. 'Angel One' sees Riker caught up in the politics of a planet ruled entirely by women. '11001001' finds the Enterprise hijacked by an alien race called the Bynars, who upgrade the ship's computer to their own ends. 'Too Short a Season' has the Enterprise accompany the ageing Admiral Mark Jameson to Mordan IV, where his mission is to secure the release of Federation hostages. 'When the Bough Breaks' sees Wesley and various other children from the Enterprise kidnapped by the technologically advanced but sterile civilisation on the planet Aldea. In 'Home Soil', it transpires that the Enterprise is under attack from Microbain, a microscopic life-form, after Data is attacked by a laser drill. 'Coming of Age' finds Wesley preparing to sit an Academy exam, while Picard is investigated by the unpopular Lt Commander Dexter. 'Heart of Glory' has the Enterprise play host to two Klingons who claim to have been attacked by Ferengi. 'The Arsenal of Freedom' sees Picard lead a team to the lifeless planet Minos to search for the USS Drake. 'Symbiosis' finds Picard caught in the middle of a war between the narcotics-addicted Ornarans and their enemies the Brekkans, who possess a possible cure. In 'Skin of Evil', an Enterprise shuttlecraft crash lands on Vagra II and is captured by the evil Armus. 'We'll Always Have Paris' sees the man married to Picard's first love create a hole in the universe. 'Conspiracy' has Picard's best friend suffer from an acute paranoia which leads to the destruction of his starship being destroyed. Finally, in 'The Neutral Zone', the crew encounter an enemy stronger than any they have come across before.

From Amazon.co.uk

Warping into syndication in 1987, Star Trek: The Next Generation successfully launched its seven-season "continuing mission" of the starship Enterprise, and this classy DVD boxed set gathers the show's inaugural season in crisp picture clarity and dazzling 5.1-channel sound. A ratings leader with a sharp ensemble cast, this revamped Trek honoured series creator Gene Roddenberry's original Trek concept, nurtured by returning veterans like producer Robert H. Justman and writers D.C. Fontana and David Gerrold. Several first-season episodes have original-series counterparts, and while the season was awkwardly inconsistent for all involved (including Roddenberry's heir apparent, producer Rick Berman), in retrospect the series began on remarkably solid footing.

Patrick Stewart was perfect as Enterprise Captain Jean-Luc Picard, while Marina Sirtis struggled with a wretched hair bun and an ill-defined character, eventually blessing Counselor Troi with delicate nuance. Denise Crosby made a strong but underutilized impression as Security Chief Tasha Yar, and left the series before season's end, allowing writers to develop Klingon Lieutenant Worf (Michael Dorn) into a fan favourite. Brent Spiner transcended Spock comparisons with his triumphant portrayal of the android Lieutenant Commander Data; and while Jonathan Frakes was accepted as First Officer Will Riker, fans ultimately rejected Wil Wheaton as ensign Wesley Crusher, the teenaged son of the ship's doctor (Gates McFadden). Still, these 25 episodes laid a firm foundation for subsequent seasons, and highlights include the Raymond Chandleresque "holo- novel" of "The Big Goodbye," Data's backstory in "Datalore," the Klingon rituals of "Heart of Glory," and a Romulan encounter in "The Neutral Zone." The DVD supplements (all on the seventh disc) are good enough to make anyone wish for more: four featurettes recall myriad first-season challenges, filled with insider perspective and enough NextGen trivia to satiate all but the most obsessive Trekkers back on Earth. Looking back, it's easy to see why NextGen lived long and prospered. --Jeff Shannon

It's a shame that Amazon have included the DVD reviews under the blu ray product because although the stories are the same the product is completely different. I just received the blu ray box set of season 1 today.

The Next Generation was shot of film (both live action and special effects) however both were immediately transferred to standard definition tape, and they used this tape to edit the episode together and composite the special effects into the live action, and it is this tape copy that is the source for the old DVDs and what was and is broadcast on television. Paramount have gone back to the original film negatives and scanned them in high definition and have re-composited and re-edited and cleaned up every single episode shot for shot. Some people may be complaining and wondering why the blu ray release is apparently so expensive, well this is why, it's taken A LOT of manpower and resource to make these.

I have all TNG episodes on DVD so I watched the first episode "Encounter at Farpoint" on DVD to familiarize myself with it and then on blu ray.

For anyone who says that they are happy with the DVDs seriously needs their head examining. The picture quality on the blu ray release is totally and utterly stunning, I cannot overstate how spectacular it looks. The DVDs picture is blurry, fuzzy with incorrect colour timing and terrible picture smearing.

The blu ray picture on the other hand is pin sharp with correct colour balance.

Format: Blu-ray
In 1987 Paramount undertook one of the bravest gambits in their history. They revived their most famous franchise, Star Trek, as a new, ongoing television series. Unable to afford to bring back the original actors, they created a new ship and a new crew, boldly going where no-one had gone before roughly a century after the events of the original series. Everyone expected the new series to flop badly, but instead it was an instant smash hit. 27 million people watched the pilot and the show would go on to last for seven seasons and 178 episodes (a hundred episodes more than the original series). It spawned no less than three spin-offs (the superb Deep Space Nine and the somewhat-less-accomplished Voyager and Enterprise) and led to a resurrection in small-screen SF shows of all stripes.

It would be fair to say that the series did not start off at its most promising, however. The show spends most of its 25-episode first season finding its feet. Fierce behind-the-scenes battles between Gene Roddenberry and his writers resulted in some muddled scripts, whilst Roddenberry's own vision of an egalitarian, equal future are let down by some dubious sexism (it's not until quite late in the season that the female characters get some interesting storylines and cool moments) and racial stereotyping (the episode Code of Honour is particularly wince-inducing in this regard), severe enough to draw criticism from the show's own star.

What saves the first season from early disintegration is Patrick Stewart's thoughtful and intelligent performance as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Stewart hits the ground running and never gives anything less than 100% to the role and to the scripts, regardless of how hammy the dialogue or how embarrassing the storyline.

THIS REVIEW IS OF THE 2006 SLIMLINE EDITION OF THE SEASON ON DVD. NOT OF THE BLU RAY EDITION OR ANY OTHER ONE. THIS HAS TO BE MENTIONED BECAUSE THE AMAZON SYSTEM WILL DOUBTLESS LUMP IT IN WITH THOSE.

It hardly seems believable now in these days of plentiful top quality science fiction tv drama, that you can watch on cable channels or via the internet, download or purchase on shiny discs, but back in the 1980's, it wasn't an easy time to be a fan of such programming. Because there wasn't a lot of it about. And it was strictly a minority interest. Doctor Who was in a bit of a state, Blake's seven were long gone, and you would if lucky get repeats of the original Star Trek. But not much else.

So to suddenly hear there was a new version of Star Trek coming along was like a dream come true.

Even then the bbc took a while to get to it, as did sell through VHS, so we had to survive on edited together rental video of episodes from the first season.

But it was new Star Trek! An all new Enterprise, with an all new crew! Boldly going where nobody had gone before!

Then we saw the episodes.

Some shows start well up to speed, have great first years, and gradually fade away, unable to live up to wonderful early days.

Some shows take a while to get going, and don't quite click till a year or two in.

This dvd contains all twenty six forty three minute long [approx.] episodes of the entire first season, complete over seven discs. In four slim plastic boxes. Contained inside a cardboard one.

This New Enterprise and it's new crew have a season that we could see at the time was uneven, but which was held together by an effortlessly charismatic performance from Patrick Stewart as Capt. Jean Luc Picard.
