In 1987, some 20 years after the original series had ended, Star Trek: The Next Generation was launched into a decade renowned for its materialistic greed, but also for its hesitant steps towards a more unified world order. Creator Gene Roddenberry revised his vision of humanity's future accordingly, shifting the Trek timeline 80 years on and reinventing the new Starship Enterprise as an Ark-like exploration vessel full of families, schools, soothing recreational facilities and a maternally pacifying computer voice (Roddenberry's wife, Majel Barrett). The Next Generation crew were not soldiers, but scientists and diplomats. Unlike the fiercely individualistic Captain Kirk, Patrick Stewart's patrician Captain Jean-Luc Picard was a model team leader: no matter how desperate the crisis, he ensured that everyone got to sit round the Conference Room table and talk it over. And in a true late-1980s touch, a key member of the Bridge crew was psychoanalyst Counsellor Troi, always on hand to discuss everyone's feelings.
Season Two saw the welcome introduction of the cybernetic horror that was the Borg. Originally a powerful symbol of technological misuse in an otherwise technologically utopian universe, ultimately their hive-like existence served to reinforce the message that everyone would be much happier as a team player. Even renegade super-entity Q (John De Lancie) relied on Picard as much as his fellow god-like playmates; Data followed Pinocchio and Spock in a quest to discard what made him an individual; and there was even an episode that rationalised why all aliens basically looked alike (we're all one big family). Even the slogan change to "Where no one has gone before" acknowledges that there's no "one" in a team. But for all its earnest political correctness and an over-reliance on "technobabble", good stories played by an appealing ensemble cast were at the heart of the show's success. After seven successful seasons, "All Good Things" finally came to an end. Until Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise, that is. --Paul Tonks --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I find that the improvements are rarely intrusive, though occasionally they seem a bit labored. In Yesterday's Enterprise, for example, Yar appears to be wearing a crass rouge makeup, which isn't in character. Nonetheless, they did an excellent job overall. I believe this is far better than the souped-up version of the original series, which added many effects simply because they could, such as the increase in the size of the backgound mountains in the arena. There are very good comparison sites on youtube for the curious.
Though NG didn't sell well, I believe the time to buy it is now, while they are selling out the leftovers (I got if for about $US75, whereas the dvd version cost $500 when we got it.) Recommended with the greatest enthusiasm.
Otherwise the blue ray is brilliant and a major step up from what I had (which were Digital VHS from BBC broadcasts, and therefore about as good as standard def recordings get).
A fabulous addition to the original series blu ray's.
(Don't expect a wide screen version the type of film used when TNG was made does not lend itself to be remastered into wide screen. This in my opinion is a Small price to pay for an otherwise excellent Blu-ray experience)

Amazing to have the whole TNG for this price and in a single package, is such a shame that just because Netflix is successful, Paramount seems to believe we will not buy a remaster... Read morePublished 4 days ago by Jose Valero
