From Amazon.co.uk

Although the second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1988-9) was curtailed by a writers’ strike, its 22 episodes nevertheless saw some refreshing new developments. Tasha Yar was gone, giving Worf more room to flex his muscles as Chief Security Officer; Geordi was promoted to Head of Engineering; Whoopi Goldberg’s mysterious Guinan presided benevolently over the crew’s rest area, Ten Forward; Dr. Crusher was replaced by the far more acerbic McCoy-like Dr. Pulaski; and mischievous super-entity Q returned to introduce Picard and the Enterprise crew to their greatest nemesis, The Borg. By the end of a transitional season the show had settled down enough to be acknowledged by all as a worthy successor to the 1960s original.

On the DVD: Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 2 comes packaged exactly like Season 1 in a solid metallic-style plastic outer case with a fold-out cardboard inner, although because of the fewer episodes this time there are only six discs not seven. Sound throughout is vivid Dolby Digital 5.1, with a full frame (1.33:1) picture that occasionally shows its age. Once again the menus neatly imitate the Enterprise’s own computer interfaces. Disc 6 contains the extra features: the "Mission Overview--Year 2" introduces the new characters and has producer Rick Berman revealing "We were all filled with piss and vinegar" at the success of the show; the "Selected Crew Analysis" continues the same thread interviewing Patrick Stewart, Levar Burton, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis and Diana Muldaur; the "Departmental Briefing" gives some background on special effects, writing, costumes, props and music; "Memorable Missions" highlights specific episodes and guest stars; finally, and best of all, is "Inside Starfleet Archives", a guided tour with Penny Juday around Paramount’s warehouses stuffed full of Star Trek props and memorabilia.--Mark Walker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Season 2 of Star Trek: The Next Generation improves on the first series by introducing occasionally stronger character based shows and situations. While Tasha Yar is missed, and to a lesser extent Doctor Crusher, we're introduced to 2 new characters. Dr. Pulaski and Guinan. Personally I always enjoyed Pulaski shows, she was one of the only characters that brought a bit of conflict into the programme. There was never enough coming and going of new blood into the Star Trek series (either in front or behind the camera). Guinan (and the new location for her "Ten Forward" - a great setting for comedy/social moments) added more life and mystery into the show. It was a shame she wasn't able to appear in more episodes in the later parts of the series (she does have a cameo role in Star Trek Nemesis).
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.

In some ways season 2 is an easy target and you often hear more lazy reviewers revelling in criticising it. Having to contend with a The Writers Guild strike, the introduction of the less likeable Doctor Kate Polaski and containing Shades of Gray which is undeniably the worst episode of The Next Generation bar none it is unfortunately encumbered. However whilst watching season 2 you start to encounter episodes that show the writers are starting to hit their stride and are getting much better at writing tight stories and developing the characters, which becomes a more consistent hallmark of the following seasons. Episodes like Where Silence Has Lease, The Measure of a Man, Q Who and others really are excellent (admittedly mixed in with a few duffers).

As mentioned in other reviews the picture quality is more variable in this season 2 release compared with season 1, it should still be stressed however that even when the picture quality is at its worst it is still miles better than the DVD releases. The first episode The Child as well as not being a particularly strong story also has the misfortunate of being one of the worst offenders, the picture can go from heavy grain, to perfect 1080p picture quality to overtly smooth within a few moments from cut to cut, on one of the extras it is mentioned that they experimented more with different types of film stock when filming season 2 and I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but sometimes especially in The Child the sudden shift in picture quality can be jarring. I should point out that this is more the exception than the rule, but you need to be aware that it exists.

When I read the earliest reviews of this set, I was disappointed beyond words. I'd been looking forward to it ever so much, but it was obviously catastrophically awful. After putting the final disc back in the box, though, I have to say that I enjoyed these BDs even more than Season 1's.

It's true that the picture quality is sometimes a notch down on the earlier collection's. But the only conspicuous difference is that grain appears a bit more often, and that when it does show up, it's a bit heavier. But there are only a few minutes in the entire season when it's prominent enough to be noticeable. I don't think anyone could deny that the discs are hugely better than the TNG DVDs.

On the plus side, the average standard of the stories is, of course, much, much better than in the first box. The Borg; Guinan; Moriarty; Riker seconded to the Klingons; I'm sure you remember how many gems this season sparkled with. And what seals the deal is the excellence of the extras. Two extended versions of The Measure of a Man, commentaries, deleted scenes, a non-VHS-quality gag reel and about two and a half hours of new HD interviews. The cast and other interviewees are far more open and relaxed than in the old DVD featurettes - also included here - and their anecdotes and revelations are as entertaining as the episodes themselves. Their long sofa chat is one of the most enjoyable special features that I've ever seen.

The pasting that this collection took from its fiercest critics was so severe that I almost decided not to try it at all. I'm very glad that I changed my mind. I'd imagine that most fans of the show would get an enormous amount of fun out of it.
