Product Description

Product Description

The entire second series of the first 'Star Trek' spin-off. In 'The Child' Troi is impregnated by an unseen alien while sleeping and soon gives birth to a rapidly-ageing child. 'Where Silence Has Lease' sees the Enterprise trapped in a hole in space by an alien entity wishing to conduct experiments on it. 'Elementary, Dear Data' has Data and Geordi play at Holmes and Watson on the holodeck, but their holographic Moriarty assumes its own identity and threatens to take over the ship. 'The Outrageous Okona' finds the Enterprise playing host to the larger-than-life Captain Okona. 'Loud as a Whisper' sees Troi helping deaf mute mediator Riva to end an age-old galactic conflict when his three assistants, without whom he is unable to communicate, are killed. In 'The Schizoid Man' Data takes on characteristics of brilliant cyberneticist Dr Ira Graves after witnessing his death on an away mission. 'Unnatural Selection' has the Enterprise attempt to warn a genetic research station of the outbreak of a rapid ageing disease. 'A Matter of Honour' finds Riker forced to serve as first officer on a Klingon vessel as part of an exchange scheme. In 'The Measure of a Man' Riker is forced to prosecute Data in a court of law when the latter attempts to resign from Starfleet. 'The Dauphin' sees Wes Crusher get into trouble after falling in love with Salia, a young alien woman who is soon to become Dauphin and thus end civil war on her home planet. 'Contagion' has the Enterprise cross the Romulan Neutral Zone in order to aid the USS Yamato, whose computer systems have failed mysteriously. 'The Royale' finds Riker, Data and Worf exploring an apparently barren planet and discovering a casino. In 'Time Squared' Picard doubts the safety of the Enterprise when they pick up a Federation shuttle containing... Picard, sent back in time from six hours in the future to warn of a catastrophe that has yet to occur. 'The Icarus Factor' sees Riker shaken by a reunion with his father, whom he has not seen for fifteen years. 'Pen Pals' has Data reveal that he has broken the Prime Directive after befriending an alien girl. 'Q-Who?' finds the Enterprise transported to a far-flung Universe, where they encounter the relentless part-human cybernetic beings known as the Borg. 'Samaritan Snare' sees both Picard and Wesley travelling to starbase Scylla 515 - the former for cardiac surgery, the latter to sit his Starfleet exams. In 'Up the Long Ladder' the Enterprise crew are forced to mediate in a conflict between the Bringloidis, whose planet is on the verge of destruction, and the Marisposans, a clone race who wish to copy Riker and Pulaski's DNA. 'Manhunt' has Troi's mother Lwaxana arrive on the Enterprise and sets her sights on Picard, who seeks refuge in his holodeck Dixon Hill programme. 'The Emissary' finds Worf reunited with former lover K'Ehleyr when she arrives as ambassador to a shipful of Klingons who are not aware that the war with the Federation is over. In 'Peak Performance' Riker takes charge of an old Starfleet vessel, the Hathaway, in a war game against Picard and the Enterprise. Finally, in 'Shades of Gray', Riker has to fight for his life when his nervous system comes under attack from an alien organism.


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

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.

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.

This second season of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' is a great improvement over the first and while it still has a number of issues, the season is still greatly entertaining. Season two sees a number of changes to the show with Jordi becoming Chief Engineer, Doctor Crusher being replaced by Doctor Katherine Pulaski, Milles O'Brian becoming Transporter Chief, the introduction of 10-Forward and Guinan (played brilliantly by Whoopi Goldberg) and Riker grows a beard. While some of these changes don't quite work (I have always found Dr Pulaski to be a very unlikable character) most are well done and suit the series very well.

Unfortunately one of the main weaknesses of this second season is that the first few episodes of the series are probably the worst with the very first episode, 'The Child' where Troi is impregnated by an energy being, probably the worst episode of the season. The series doesn't pick up until the very entertaining episode eight, 'A Matter of Honor', where Riker briefly serves on a Klingon cruiser as part of an exchange program. From here the quality of the episodes improves as the series continues with highlights being episode sixteen 'Q Who?' (which introduces the Borg for the first time), episode twenty 'The Emissary' (where a woman from Worf's past comes to the Enterprise on an important mission) and episode twenty-one 'Peak Performance' (where the crew of the Enterprise partake in a war game). The funniest episode of the season is easily episode nineteen, 'Manhunt', where Troi's mother comes to the enterprise as an ambassador and has her eyes set on Captain Picard.

The special effects on the remastered editions are very good and the acting is reasonable with all the main and recurring characters seeming far more comfortable with their roles.

While still not the best season of 'The Next Generation', this second season is still very entertaining and is well worth around four and a half stars.

This is a review of the original-edition slimline set of season two, a season where Geordi becomes Chief Engineer; Diana Muldaur as Dr Pulaski is a refreshing change from Dr Crusher; Whoopi Goldberg makes her first appearances as Guinan (as does 10-Forward as her `bar'); Riker has a beard that suits him well; Worf now wears yellow; Colm Meaney has a regular role as Transporter Chief; and Data demonstrates his interest in Sherlock Holmes.

The crew are now settling down into their roles and appear more comfortable as a result. Stories are better too. As Rick Berman says in the accompanying extra, `Mission Overview', "the show started to click". Unfortunately there was a writers' strike in Hollywood during this second season, and I understand this is why there are only twenty-two episodes. Indeed, the last episode is more or less a rifling-through of Riker's memories from previous episodes.

The best thing about TNG, for me, is Q. And here he returns to introduce the crew for the first time to their future adversary, the Borg. However, I had to wince when at the height of his first battle with the Borg, Picard decides to ... have a conference. What a difference from Kirk! Episode twelve for me replicates the final circumstances of Bowman towards the end of the film `2001: A Space Odyssey', caught in an alien power's concept of `Casino Royale'.

A wide variety of contemporary matters are addressed, from issues relating to abortion and an immaculate conception in episode one through to a definition of what constitutes life in episode three and the perils of genetic engineering in episode seven. But present-day scientific knowledge has already made the world of genetics depicted in episode eighteen obsolete.
