Season five in so many ways, is just an absolutely incredible season that is packed with stunning, thought provoking episodes. As one watched these shows aired for the first time or is working their way through the DVD's, the quality of the writing and the actors comfort with their characters just becomes better and better by the episode. The shows popularity is at an all time high during this season. This is evidenced by the high quality of the scripts and shows that deal with so many issues brilliantly. The one true oddity about the season is the lack of a "Q" episode due to the lack of a good script for the character. Of key interest is the fact that more and more of Hollywood's big names were inquiring about and or getting spots on the show. In my opinion, many of the series best episodes of its seven year run came from this season.
The following is a list with a synopsis of episodes that stand out among all of the great episodes of the season:
Redemption part II - The outstanding conclusion to season fours season ending cliffhanger. Introducing the return of Denise Crosby in the role of Commander Sela, Tasha Yar's daughter; this brings us back to the events of "Yesterdays Enterprise." Here we are treated to some of the best Klingon scenes of the entire series.
Darmok - Paul Winfield, better known in the Star Trek universe from Star Trek II, makes a guest appearance. This episode is quite intriguing in how Captain Picard and crew have to come up with a way to communicate with the Children of Tama, whose language is indecipherable, hopefully before Captain Picard gets killed.
Ensign Ro - The introduction of Michelle Forbes in the role of Ensign Ro Laren and the Bajoran people which will become quite prominent in Star Trek Deep Space Nine.

27 of 27 people found the following review helpful By Randall F. Miller III on November 14, 2013
Format: Blu-ray
Since Amazon condenses the reviews of multiple formats into one pile, I hope this one stands out. It covers CBS/Paramount's new Blu-ray release of "Star Trek: The Next Generation"'s fifth season, NOT the earlier DVD release. I was able to get an advance copy from the studio and also used it to write a separate full-length review of this title, listed below.

Once again, CBS Video has produced a top tier Blu-ray release that "Star Trek: The Next Generation" fans will enjoy. Each and every episode has been re-scanned from the original camera negative, with the end result being much crisper and more detailed than the older DVD and broadcast versions which were shot on film but edited on videotape. The visual effects in many cases have been cleaned up or tastefully redone, and I'd be hard-pressed to complain about any of them. They're so good that casual fans of "TNG" might not even notice!

As for the episodes themselves, Season Five is home to some of "TNG"'s best moments, from the fan favorite episode "Inner Light" to the two-part "Unification" that guest stars Leonard Nimoy as Spock (and this two-parter is available as a separate Blu-ray release, too). Other notable episodes include "Power Play", "Darmok", "Cause and Effect" and many more, with only a handful of less impressive outings along the way. As with past Blu-ray releases, the top-notch restoration WILL amplify your enjoyment of the series: a lot of time, money and effort went into this show week after week during its original run and, in some cases, you'll see details you've never noticed before. Simply put, if you're a fan of "TNG" you'll want to check this out immediately.

As for the bonus features, they're mostly as good as the ones we've seen on past Blu-ray collections.
