From Amazon.co.uk

To the delight of Star Trek fans everywhere, the stellar second season of The Next Generation (1988-89) belonged to Lieutenant Commander Data. As the Enterprise-D's resident android, Data (in the Emmy-worthy hands of Brent Spiner) would gain legal sentience in the season highlight "The Measure of a Man," and his increasingly "human" personality would refine itself in such diverse episodes as "Elementary, Dear Data" (Data as Sherlock Holmes), "The Outrageous Okona" (a misfire, but worthy from the Data perspective), and "Pen Pals." While Gates McFadden (Dr. Crusher) took a sabbatical of then-unknown duration (gracefully replaced by original Trek guest star Diana Muldaur as Dr. Pulaski), the remaining bridge crew would match Data's vitality: Riker grew a handsome beard and proved his command potential; Worf became richly nuanced in "The Icarus Factor," and met his match (and mate) in guest Suzie Plakson's fiercely Klingon sexpot K'Ehleyr; Wesley matured admirably, despite continuing fan disapproval; Betazed culture emerged as Troi locked horns with her eccentric mother, Lwaxana (Majel Barrett, in a recurring role); and La Forge made good on his promotion to chief engineer while Chief O'Brien (Colm Meaney) flawlessly rode on Geordi's coattails.

In a crucial series development, Guinan (special guest Whoopi Goldberg) revealed a connection to Q in her helpful capacity as Ten-Forward's enigmatic host, while Q himself (John DeLancie) precipitated the Enterprise's first, fateful encounter with the Borg (in the suspenseful "Q Who?"). Through it all, Patrick Stewart brilliantly intensified all of Picard's renaissance qualities (especially in the dazzling "Time Squared"), exploring the captain's facets with equal measures of curiosity, fascination, amusement, courage, and philosophical insight. Despite its lame finale with the money-saving clip-show "Shades of Gray," season 2 charted a warp-nine course to the even better season 3. --Jeff Shannon

3.0 out of 5 stars A steady Warp 5 28 Jun 2006
Whilst this is a superior series to the first, you may still find yourself wincing through some of the cliches and ridiculous lines the actors deliver. TNG didn't really begin to fly until it's third series but here you can see flashes of brilliance with some stand out episodes such as 'Q-Who' which introduced the Borg. Unfortunately there are some real clangers here as well including the dreadful 'Up The Long Ladder' and the truly awful episode where the Counsellor falls for a deaf and mute mediator - the producers clearly trying to make a point about overcoming diversity. The premise of strange new worlds and finding common ground amongst all species is still an admirable one, but it is executed far better in TNG's later series. Worth a look, but don't expect your warp engines to be engaged.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting Better 28 Feb 2007
After Star Trek: The Next Generation's mixed debut season, things seemed bleak for this second season since the writers strike of the late 1980's was in full force.

While some stories may be bottom of the barrel, such as "The Outrageous Okona", "The Royale" and trek's first and only clip show "Shades of Grey", there was also a big turnaround with more ambitious stories such as "The Measure of a Man", which questions Data's existance as a sentient lifeform, and "Q Who?", which introduces us to one of trek's greatest enemies - the Borg.

Other changes to consider include the replacement of Dr Crusher with Dr Pulaski, who seems to be a female incarnation of Dr McCoy, and the introduction of Guinan, played by Whoopi Goldberg after she requested a role on the series. As a child, she was inspired by Nichelle Nichols who played Uhuru in the original series as a black person in a position of authority.

As many fans may know, The Next Generation came into it's own from the third season onwards. However, this second season shouldn't be dismissed out of hand, and these new and cheaper slimline sets are worth the price if only to see the series as it evolves into the popular show it would become.

4.0 out of 5 stars Picard's Enterprise: year two 26 May 2014
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
THIS REVIEW IS OF THE SIX DISC SLIMLINE PACKAGING EDITION OF THIS SEASON THAT WAS RELEASED ON DVD IN 2006. IT IS NOT OF THE BLU RAY OR ANY OF THE OTHERS. THAT HAS TO BE MENTIONED BECAUSE THE AMAZON SYSTEM WILL DOUBTLESS LUMP THEM ALL IN TOGETHER.

Here, spread over six discs in four plastic cases that are inside one bigger cardboard box, are all twenty two forty three minute long [approx.] episodes of the second season of Star Trek: the Next Generation.

This show doesn't really click till it's third season. But this one is an improvement on the first, as all those involved steadily get used to it and find what works and what doesn't.

Jonathan Frakes gains a beard, loosens up a lot, and suddenly Riker becomes a three dimensional character.

The show starts to let you see something that would become a great strength. Characters interacting when not on duty. This is helped by the introduction of ship's bar Ten-Forward, which is run - in occasional appearances - by Whoopi Goldberg as enigmatic alien lady Guinan.

Doctor Crusher is no longer on board, and the ship's Doctor is now Diana Muldaur - twice a guest star in original series episodes - as Dr. Katherine Pulaski. A more veteran and stern lady than Crusher. They were going for a female McCoy here, and she has the occasional clash with the captain. But the character rarely gets the chance to shine and too often has little to do. Her attitude to Data being good characterisation but not something that makes her sympathetic.

These episodes have, like season one, also dated a fair bit. But as a whole, it's a stronger season. And a show that's getting there.

The episodes are as follows:

The child: Troi gets pregnant immaculately.

5.0 out of 5 stars The voyages continue 22 Jan 2010
By LXIX TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
1988/1989's Emmy nominated Series 2 of Star Trek: The Next Generation contains 22 episodes. Each is around 42 minutes long. In general, they consolidate on the introductory series. To be honest, there's variable quality here in the storylines and much of it is standard fare from the scriptwriters. However, if you're a fan, then you'll still enjoy many hours of viewing from this box set of 6 DVDs (998 minutes to be precise) and there are some classic episodes including the first skirmish with the Borg and appearances by Klingons, Romulans, Ferengi and several new civilisations.

Other points to note are the introduction of the homely bar lounge area on the Enterprise (Ten-Forward), appearances by Hollywood star Whoopi Goldberg (who had been inspired by Lieutenant Uhura in the original series while growing up) and the reintroduction of Diana Muldaur (who featured twice in the original series and now plays the role of Dr. Katherine Pulaski).

There are 5 extras on the 6th DVD ('Mission Overview', 'Selected Crew Analysis', 'Production', 'Memorable Missions' and 'Starfleet Archives'). Each extra feature is around 15 minutes in length.

The series starts slowly and the first 4 episodes take place entirely on the Enterprise.

Here's my personal take on the individual episodes (from best to worst), although all make for good viewing:

*Episode 16: "Q Who?" (the Enterprise is boarded by the mischievous, flippant but deadly and powerful Q entity who transports them 7,000 light years in order that they can more than meet their match when they encounter the Borg for the very first time.
