The episodes themselves were extremely varied. Due to the writer's strike, the season was cut short to 22 episodes rather than the full 26 ending with the appalling "bottle show", 'Shades of Grey' (Plot summary: Riker in a coma and Deanna "looking worried" while Pulaski puts copious L.E.Ds on his forehead). "The Royale" was also truly terrible. There were some storming episodes though, the best being "Q Who." This episode had everything: Q, the introduction of the Borg, Guinan, great special effects and a superb score by Ron Jones. Other great episodes were "Contagion" and "Time Squared"
This box set has everything you could wish for (that's why I'm giving it 5 stars): remastered picture and Dolby Digital sound, one hour of new interviews and documentaries, and some really awesome DVD menus. Although seasons 1 and 2 aren't the best you can't really miss these, they are great foundation episodes with the DVD box sets given the care and attention they deserve.

Shades of Gray
There are 22 episodes instsead of the normal 26 because of a writers strike and the last episode called 'SHADES OF GREY'is more of a re-cap of the last two series.
The DVD set is well produced, with the series on 6 discs. Containing a host of extra features on the 6th disc.
The plastic sliver case looks very striking & is more impressive than the American version box sets.
Booklet that comes with the 2nd series it self is rather bleak. It could of easliy had more information about behind the scenes, cast and crew.Plus the photos look as if riped from the internet.
In short this is a impressive set of stories, which are mixed with hummor, action, drama and a little room for thinking too!
