Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season Four Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Set in the 24th century, the exploits of the U.S.S. Enterprise continue as it explores the universe, seeking new life and new worlds.

Review: Star Trek has gotten a bad wrap over the years as being just for big geeks.  While there may have been a time when this was true, we live in a glorious new era where people are embracing their inner nerd.  Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered in 1987 and it changed things for me.  When I was little I didn't get Star Trek...but the Next Generation..that I got!  I watched the show religiously through the years as it got better and better.  This new release is the complete fourth season on the show in high-definition for the first time!  The show looks amazing.  The blu-ray really brings out detail that was lost in the original television airings and even the DVD releases!  The fourth season gave us so much more character development and personal stories..this one is not to be missed.  This is a must have!

  • Broadcast episodes of the entire fourth season (1990-91)
  • 26 episodes on 7 discs
  • Featurettes: Mission Overview: Year Four (reveals the challenges in resolving the cliffhanger episode "The Best of Both Worlds"; provides a whimsical look at the Robin Hood-themed "Q-Pid"; and celebrates the historic 100th episode with Gene Roddenberry); Selected Crew Analysis: Year Four (an in-depth look at the departure of Wesley Crusher; cast members discuss their experiences performing stunts; and a profile of Jennifer Hetrick as "Vash"); Departmental Briefing, Year Four: Production (a behind-the-scenes look at directors Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, and David Livingston; includes a special makeup section featuring Brent Spiner); New Life and New Civilizations (an inside look at creating alien landscapes and shooting on location; also explains the challenges of shooting the effects-packed episode "The Best of Both Worlds"); Chronicles from the Final Frontier (a discussion of Season Four's most extraordinary episodes and characters with preeminent writers Ronald D. Moore, Brannon Braga, and Jeri Taylor)
