Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Star Trek: The Next Generation's third year was an important development in syndicated television. After two shaky years, Paramount nonetheless decided the franchise still had plenty to do. Their confidence was bolstered by two significant factors. First, cast uncertainties were finally settled: Gates McFadden (Dr. Crusher) was back for good; Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar) regretted her first-year departure, and so contrived a return in the Emmy Award-winning "Yesterday's Enterprise"; and Whoopi Goldberg happily continued her actor's-scale contributions.

Second, after the show had survived the previous year's writers' strike, new writing blood revitalised both characters and ideas: Data experienced fatherhood ("The Offspring"), Worf's Klingon heritage kick-started a huge story arc ("Sins of the Father"), and Picard got a saucy vacation ("Captain's Holiday"). There were memorable star cameos: John de Lancie played more mischief alongside Corbin Bernsen ("Déjà Q"); Dwight Schultz played truant in a gentle warning about addiction ("Hollow Pursuits"); and pleasing fans even more was Mark Lenard as Spock's dad ("Sarek"). The strongest evidence that TNG would continue for some time was the trend-setting cliffhanger finale. Fans and critics still agree that "The Best of Both Worlds" (properly introducing the Borg) was one of the greatest tricks ever pulled on TV to make audiences come back for more. --Paul Tonks

Product Description

The entire third season of the 'Star Trek' spin-off series. In 'Evolution' Wes Crusher's experiments result in the Enterprise's computer systems being overrun by intelligent micro-organisms. 'The Ensigns of Command' sees Data's ability to cope with stress put to the test when, on his first command mission, he has to deal with an alien race who demand the withdraw of human colonists from their planet. 'The Survivors' has the crew encounter an elderly couple who claim to be the only survivors of the 11,000-strong Earth colony recently attacked by aliens. 'Who Watches the Watchers' finds Counsellor Troi seized by the Mintakans, a primitive off-shoot of the Vulcan race, who wish to sacrifice her to their 'god' Picard. 'The Bonding' sees Worf playing surrogate father to the 12-year-old son of an archaeologist who was killed on a recent mission. In 'Booby Trap' Geordi is forced to revive a hologram of 'Enterprise' creator Leah Brahms when the ship becomes trapped in a lethal energy minefield. 'The Enemy' has the Enterprise rescue a suspected Romulan spy, while Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton) is stranded on a planet with a poisonous atmosphere. 'The Price' finds the Enterprise playing host to the many races who are all bidding for ownership of a stable wormhole, but the situation quickly threatens to turn dangerous. In 'The Vengeance Factor' Picard (Patrick Stewart) is forced to mediate between the warring clans of a distant planet, a task made more difficult after a clandestine murder. 'The Defector' sees Picard risk sparking off a war between the Federation and the Romulans when one of their enemies apparently defects with some secret battle plans. 'The Hunted' has the escape of a prisoner jeopardise the planet Angosia's efforts to be accepted into the Federation. 'The High Ground' finds Dr Crusher kidnapped by terrorists from the planet Rutia, who are attempting to overthrow what they claim is a corrupt government. In 'Deja Q' Q turns to Picard and the Enterprise for sanctuary when he is stripped of his powers. 'A Matter of Perspective' sees Riker suspected of murdering a scientist who accused the Starfleet officer of seducing his wife. 'Yesterday's Enterprise' has Picard experience an alternative reality in which Tasha Yar is still alive. 'The Offspring' finds android officer Data trying to protect his new, self-built robot daughter from those who want to take her away for research purposes. 'Sins of the Father' sees Worf forced to travel to his Klingon homeworld to defend his late father against charges of treason, only to discover his brother, Commander Kurn, unexpectedly alive and well. In 'Allegiance' Riker is abducted by aliens and replaced on the Enterprise by a carousing lookalike who attempts to seduce Dr Crusher. 'Captain's Holiday' has Picard become involved in a treasure hunt with the beautiful but scheming Vash and her Ferengi companion. 'Tin Man' finds the Enterprise crew ordered to accompany telepathically-sensitive Betazoid Tam Elbrun when he goes to meet a new, alien life form. In 'Hollow Pursuits' Reg Barclay, a painfully shy engineer, places the entire crew in jeopardy when one of his holodeck fantasies gets out of control. 'The Most Toys' sees Data kidnapped by fanatical collector Fajo, only to malfunction and place his captor's life in danger. 'Sarek' has the ailing Ambassador Sarek - father of original Enterprise crew member Spock - arrive to carry out his last mission. 'Menage a Troi' finds Troi and her mother Lwaxana (who is still infatuated with the captain of the Enterprise) kidnapped by Ferengi Damon Tog, forcing a reluctant Picard to sweep to the rescue. 'Transfigurations' sees Doctor Crusher save the life of a crashed, amnesiac alien by linking him to Geordi's nervous system. Finally, in 'The Best of Both Worlds, Part 1', the Borg return with a renewed determination to assimilate Picard and use him as their spokesman on Earth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling!!! 26 Nov 2006
This season of Star Trek sets it's standards high. Some of the episodes have your teeth clenched with fear and how can everything turn out right. Somehow, the Enterprise survives and lives on.

There are some appearences from Tasha Yarr which is a twist to the tale because she died in series one. Q makes an appearence when he's lost all of his powers and the war with the Romulans starts to get tense.

My favourite episodes are Yesterdays Enterprise, Evolution, The survivors, Booby trap, Deja Q, Captains holiday, Menage a troi, Transfigurations and Best of both Worlds. Even though these are my favourites, there are none which I don't like.

Sometimes the picture quality isn't quite up to scratch. I feel as though if you had a big screen, it would look blurred at times. Also, the first part of best of both worlds is good, but you have to buy series 4 to descover the outcome. Apart from that, it's fantastic.

Just think, you're getting 25 episodes of Star Trek!. And you won't regret it if you buy one. Highly recommended and loads of fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars TNG hits its stride 5 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
With Season Three I'm in agreement with those reviewers who see this as the point where The Next Generation started to impress its audience. The quality of the writing, the cast performances and the look of the show all improved greatly. Whilst it still has some flaws, depending on what your favourite characters and episodes are, it has a consistency that was lacking for the previous two years. This season started out with strong ideas; from Wesley Crusher accidentally creating intelligent nanobots that threaten the ship and a scientist's life work (Evolution), Data's dilemma of how to convince a colony that they leave their homes where they are under threat of massacre (Ensigns of Command) to an unusual drama of two humans living unharmed on a world otherwise destroyed by an alien invasion, which leads to a devastating conclusion (The Survivors).

With episodes like "Who Watches the Watchers", "The Defector", "Deja-Q" (a personal favourite for some great lines and Guinan's behaviour to Q), "A Matter of Perspective", "Yesterday's Enterprise", "Hollow Pursuits" and the two-part cliffhanger "The Best of Both Worlds" it puts the show in a much better position. Although there are some misfires and less than dazzling episodes it does highlight that the proportion of good episodes increased and provided entertaining stories that went from Cold War-esque scenes with the Romulans to dealing with emotional subjects such as the effect of death on Enterprise families (The Bonding), mental health issues (Sarek) and the first in-depth look at the Klingon home world (Sins of the Father).

Definitely worth viewing to see how much this season improved the show's overall direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting Better all the time! 23 Aug 2012
Season 3 of Star Trek TNG builds upon the success of the first two seasons with improved storylines and a strong cast.

At this point in the series we're finally able to enjoy episodes featuring not just missions involving the whole crew but stories that centre around a central character such Data (The Offspring), Worf (Sins of the Father) and Captain Picard (Captains Holiday).

My favourite episodes in Season 3 is 'Yesterday's Enterprise' with an alternate present and the welcome albeit brief return of Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby). My second is 'Déjà Q' where the crew encounter Q once again with hilarious consequences, especially making Data experience laughter (Priceless!).

Episode List:

1.Evolution
2.The Ensigns of Command
3.The Survivors
4.Who Watches the Watchers
5.The Bonding
6.Booby Trap
7.The Enemy
8.The Price
9.The Vengeance Fatcor
10.The Defector
11.The Hunted
12.The High Ground
13.Déjà Q
14.A Matter of Perspective
15.Yesterdays Enterprise
16.The Offspring
17.Sins of the Father
18.Allegiance
19.Captains Holiday
20.Tin Man
21.Hollow Pursuits
22.The Most Toys
23.Sarek
24.Ménage à Troi
25.Transfigurations
26.The Best of Both Worlds Part 1

Star Trek TNG is in general one of the best Television Series ever and Season 3 doesn't disappoint, I highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars More galactic adventures 10 Mar 2010
By LXIX TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
1989/1990's double Emmy award winning 3rd series of Star Trek: The Next Generation contains 26 episodes, each of approximately 42/43 minutes in length. In terms of casting, the familiar faces are all here - with the notable change that Dr. Crusher returned to replace Dr. Pulaski. Other, more subtle, changes appear to include darker (more serious) lighting and slight uniform changes (to the crew's collars).

With 1129 minutes of run time, this pack of 7 DVDs is now very keenly priced.

Extras on disk 7 are "Mission Overview" (17 mins), "Selected Crew Analysis" (13 mins), "Production" (20 mins) and "Memorable Missions" (13 mins).

Here's my personal take on the individual episodes (from best to worse):

*Episode 26: The Best of Both Worlds Part 1 (The Borg infiltrate federation space for the first time by destroying a remote colony on Jouret IV and the Enterprise is sent to investigate. In a game of cat and mouse, it is clear that Borg technology is far ahead and that `resistance is futile'. Members of the Borg cube abduct Captain Picard from the bridge and assimilate him as `Locutus of Borg'. They then set course for an attack on sector 001 i.e. Planet Earth)

*Episode 10: The Defector (After a chase across the neutral zone, a high-ranking Romulan officer defects and brings news of a military build up and covert plan for war between the Romulan Empire and the Federation. The Enterprise crew remain unconvinced and think he could be a spy. The results of a sensory probe suggest some foul play may be at work.
