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

5.0 out of 5 stars Datasfan 21 May 2006
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Picard's Enterprise: year four 4 July 2014

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping season 2 Jan 2007
I recieved this season for christmas. I have not been disappointed with it. The storylines are incredible and complicated. Sometimes, you wonder how things can return to normal.

It is compulsive viewing. The picture quality is higher on this series than in any of the previous ones. This is the first series when computer animation is heavily used and it has been sucsessful.

This series really makes you want to buy the next series so watch it or you'll end up with all 7 series. Compulsive viewing and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars STNG 7 Jun 2009
I've enjoyed the Star Trek Next Generation franchise since it first came out. The character development during the series continues to be what draws me to this series as my favourite Star Trek. It's great that it's been so affordable to purchase in region 2 format (I live in Canada, but have an all region player). Thanks, Amazon UK for ongoing GREAT service

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Buy - If you're a Sci-Fi Fan!. 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase
The makers of The Next Generation really started to push the boat out here. Diverse socio-comment driven character stories in the grand tradition of The Original Series. The whole cast are fleshed out and get to shine. It really started to improve during the third season and fell away a little in the last season, but that's true of so many series! So sit back shut the curtains or wait for night to arrive and enjoy! Loved it! Remastered Original Series is still a must though!

4.0 out of 5 stars A More Personal Enterprise 23 Mar 2014
By Nicholas Casley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Season four starts with the second of the two-episode ‘The Best of Both Worlds’ (where Picard became part of the Borg collective) and ends with the first of the two-episode ‘Redemption’ (where Denise Crosby plays a Romulan at the heart of a conspiracy to start a war between the Klingons and the Federation). Inbetween we have twenty-six episodes, many of which build up the characters of the main players, showing aspects of their private lives and interrelating with their families. As explained by writer Ronald Moore in the extras, this was intended from the start.

Episodes in season four include the use of the saucer section; Brent Spiner playing Data, Lore AND Dr Soong; the introduction of Tasha Yar’s sister; we meet Data’s cat; we learn Chief O’Brien’s first name; the return of the socially-challenged Lieutenant Barclay; and apparently the only episode that did not feature the bridge of the ‘Enterprise’ (‘Family’). Wesley Crusher left the series almost half-way through, ostensibly to attend Starfleet Academy – we are told in episode nine that he has been studying the effects of outpost judiciary decisions on federation law. (Yeah, right.) But in the extras he explains he left to pursue his career in film and on the stage.

My favourite is probably the fifth, where Eric Menyuk reprises his role as ‘the traveller’. An equally good episode is the eight in which Riker’s memory is infected by the Romulans. Both stories are based on firm ideas but which are ruined (as usual) at the end by cop outs that rely on some ‘deus ex machina’. Another good case is ‘Night Terrors’, where we have an intriguing opening of inexplicable tiredness and irritability among the crew that is ultimately explained by a plot that is both too fanciful and riddled with holes.
