Product Description

All 26 episodes from the fourth season of the first 'Star Trek' spin-off. In 'The Best of Both Worlds 2' Picard has been assimilated by the seemingly unstoppable Borg, and Riker risks destroying his friend and captain when he launches an attack on the enemy cube. 'Family' sees Picard recuperating from his ordeal back on Earth with his resentful older brother, while Worf receives a visit from his adoptive human parents and Wesley views a message from his late father. In 'Brothers' Data takes control of the Enterprise when he is summoned by his 'father', Dr Noonian Soong, in order to be fitted with an emotion chip. 'Suddenly Human' finds Picard attempting to decide what to do with a teenage human boy who has been raised by a group of Talarians. 'Remember Me' sees Beverly convinced that people are going missing from the Enterprise as a result of her son Wesley's warp field experiments. 'Legacy' finds the crew embroiled in civil war when they visit the home world of Ishara, the sister of their deceased colleague Tasha Yar. In 'Reunion' Worf is reunited with his former mate, K'Ehleyr, and son Alexander when Picard is asked to intercede in the Klingon accession. 'Future Imperfect' sees Riker recovering consciousness after succumbing to a strange gas, only to discover that he is apparently fifteen years into the future and now an admiral, about to arrive on a Romulan warbird. In 'Final Mission' Wes Crusher is accepted to Starfleet Academy and takes Picard on one last away mission. 'The Loss' has ship's counsellor Deanna Troy lose her empathetic powers just as the Enterprise approaches a race of two-dimensional lifeforms. 'Data's Day' sees the android first officer recounting his typical day, describing his attempts to understand a variety of human emotions as he helps Chief Miles O'Brien prepare for his impending wedding. 'The Wounded' finds Picard forced to intervene when a renegade captain launches an attack on the Federation's former enemies, the Cardassians. In 'Devil's Due' the population of Ventax II turn to Picard for help when the 'god' Arda arrives to enslave them - according to the terms of a contract they made with him for one thousand years of peace. 'Clues' sees the entire Enterprise crew (except Data) lose one whole day of memory after passing through a wormhole. In 'First Contact' Riker is stranded on a planet whose inhabitants are fearful of and even hostile towards alien life forms. 'Galaxy's Child' has Geordi disappointed when his alterations to the Enterprise do not meet with ship designer Leah Brahms' approval. 'Night Terrors' sees the crew plagued by hallucinations when they become trapped in a space rift. 'Identity Crisis' finds Geordi compelled to return to a planet he once visited as part of a survey team when all the other members of the team vanish. In 'The Nth Degree' Barclay's intelligence is rapidly enhanced, and it continues to grow by the minute, causing him to try and bring the Enterprise to the centre of the galaxy. 'Q-Pid' has both Q and Vash return, this time in a recreation of the Robin Hood legend, where Picard is Robin, Vash is Marion, Q is the Sheriff, and Worf, despite his protestations, is one of the merry men. In 'The Drumhead' a Klingon working on board the Enterprise is found to be in league with the Romulans; this leads the respected-but-bigoted Admiral Satie to start a witch-hunt for other conspirators. 'Half A Life' sees the Enterprise crew encounter a race who decree that ritual suicide should be undertaken by all those reaching the age of 60. 'The Host' finds Dr. Crusher falling under the spell of a Federation ambassador, but when he is injured and needs her medical attention, she makes a discovery which causes her feelings to change pretty quickly. 'The Mind's Eye' has Geordie kidnapped by the Romulans and brainwashed into the assassination of a Klingon governor. 'In Theory' sees Data encounter more illogical human emotions when an Enterprise cadet falls in love with him. Finally, in 'Redemption', the Klingon Empire is teetering on the brink of civil war and the Romulans are taking more than a passing interest in the power struggle.


Season 4 of Star Trek: The Next Generation seemed like the year of family. After quickly resolving the breathtaking cliffhanger of "The Best of Both Worlds," the show took pains to show some of what the Federation was fighting for. We meet Picard's brother, Data's father, Tasha's sister, and Worf's adoptive human parents, plus an old flame with a surprise son in tow. The Klingon heritage subplot that begins here and builds to the cliffhanger finale ("Redemption") would continue to the show's end and through into Worf's reappearance in Deep Space Nine.

The year also explored the implications of Data, Lwaxana Troi, Geordi, and Dr. Crusher being in love, while Miles O'Brien (given a first name at last) married Keiko. There were old friends revisited: the ubiquitous Q in a hilarious Robin Hood romp ("Qpid"), perennial screwup Reg Barclay ("Nth Degree"), and even the mysterious Traveler from season 1's "Where No One Has Gone Before" (played by Eric Menyuk, who was nearly cast as Data). There were new races introduced who would have an important bearing on Trek's destiny: the Cardassians and the Trill. Most of all, though, there were the one-off stories that impressed: "Clues," with its memory-loss mystery; "Night Terrors," with some genuine frights; and "Identity Crisis," with possibly the only time Trek technology really helped Geordi solve a puzzle. Then right at the end, reinforcing the year's familial theme, Denise Crosby returned as her own half-Romulan daughter! --Paul Tonks

Season 4 of TNG is my favourite season of the series. Frequently, its a lot less bouncy & action orientated than season 3, but instead we have strong guest actors putting in powerful performances - for example, David Ogden Stiers as Dr Timicin in 'Half a Life' - a desperately moving episode. They also have a bit of fun with the show for the first time, with episodes like 'Future Imperfect', 'The Nth Degree' and 'Clues'. Then of course there are the powerhouses like Best of Both Worlds part II, 'Redemption part 1', 'The Wounded' and 'The Drumhead'. Most of all though I think I enjoy the reflective episodes, like 'Family', 'In Theory' and 'Data's Day'. Paramount are releasing these boxsets at a phenomenal rate, so I'm forced to pick which seasons to buy. Season 4 was always at the top of my list.

By now, you would either have seen Star Trek: The Next Generation and liked it or not, so the fourth season of a show is probably not the best point to start but in other ways it is. Starting with the conclusion of Best Of Both Worlds, which wrapped up the Borg Invasion story a bit to quickly for my liking, this was still a great story. There were some great stories in this series along with some not so great tales. My stand out episodes in season four include Family, a touching story where Picard has to deal with the Borg equivalent of rape and how his life will continue after, Final Mission, the last listed series of Wesley Crusher and Wounded, a story about a military veteran unable to see past the conflict.
One episode which stands out the most is The Drumhead, concentrating on the trial and persecution of a crew member because of his race. Despite being nearly 12 years old now, this series as a whole produced episodes that are still relivent today. There are some exceptional episodes in this series that have nothing to do with flying spaceships and funny looking aliens but do what Star Trek does best, produces episodes on the human nature. This is a good place to start your star trek experience even if you don't understand at first what is going on.

Like the year before, season 4 was blessed with several superbly written episodes. There's a good mix of moral, meaning, action and fun, some really clever episodes (Parallels, Remember Me), and plenty of quality charachter development. There is some action (the conclusion to 'Best of Both Worlds, the season finale and 'The Wounded' being obvious examples), but most of the time, the show deals with issues, often very successfully.
Whereas other seasons of The Next Generation had some outstanding, some mediocre, and some absolutely awful episodes, season 4 rarely ventures above or below the 'very very good' mark. This is The Next Generation at it's peak, the seasons before built up to it, the seasons after could never quite emulate this level of success.
Watch out for: 'Reunion', 'Clues', 'Night Terrors', 'The Drumhead', 'Half A Life'
The DVD is packed with the usual features, some already seen interviews, and some new material recorded for the DVD. Quite pricey at the RRP, but at the lower price, it's worth it.

This Season is has a strong theme of Romulan vs. Klingons and The Federation in almost every 2-3 episodes. It's a subtle but effective build-up to the Redemption at the end of the Season. My favourite episodes are "Data's Day", "In Theory", "The Loss", "First Contact" and "Reunion". Most of the episodes in Season Four touches on family, friendship and romantic relationships and we get to see Data really trying to understand and imitate human emotions, behaviours and relationships - it makes me realise how complicated it is to be a human and also at the same time just how special we are to have all the capabilities we do have. In this Season we also see Troi becoming just 'human' for a while which is a bit different to other episodes. Worf suffers personal tragedy but at the same time meeting his son for the first time. Geordi has his scary moments and Reiker gets chased around in hospital after the citizens on a developing planet sees him as a dangerous alien! Picard gets dragged into ancient Klingon rituals and has tormented again buy Q and Vash - the usual fun ensues, and accentuates with appearances by Guinan, Lwaxana, The Traveller, Wesley, Keiko & O'Brien (they get married in the Season).

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 July 2014
Format: DVD

Seven discs. Inside four plastic slimline cases. Inside one bigger cardboard box. Containing all twenty six forty three minute long [approx] episodes of the fourth year of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Language and subtitle options are as follows:

Languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish.

Subtitles: English, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish.

The show had clicked and gotten up to warp speed in it's third year. Would this season be just as good?

Episodes are as follows:

The Best of Both Worlds part two. Action all the way in the continuation to the story begun at the end of last year. Gripping tv that doesn't let up for a second.

Family. Back to Earth as Picard reunites with his family and Worf with his foster parents. An episode with no action, but one that makes sure the events of the previous story aren't forgotten. A great bit of drama.

Brothers. Data meets his creator. But then it becomes a full family reunion. A great showcase for Brent Spiner's acting in an excellent data episode.

Suddenly human. A human boy who has been raised by aliens is rescued. But can he become human again after living the alien way for so long? Not as spectacularly memorable as the last few episodes, it is though nonetheless a decent and thought provoking drama.

Remember Me. Crew members vanish. Only Dr. Crusher remembers them. A capable showcase for her in a decent puzzle episode.

Legacy. Tasha Yar's homeworld. Her sister.
