Product Description

Available for the first time on DVD is a collection featuring the bizarre and strange of episodes of Star Trek! See your favorite characters behaving contrary to type in familiar but odd circumstances in Star Trek: Alternate Realities, a 5-disc fan-collective that includes 20 episodes selected from all five Star Trek television series plus exclusive special features.

Amazon.com

Star Trek Collective: Alternate Realities is the sixth entry in the Star Trek: Fan Collective series (but not named as such, presumably because these episodes weren't selected by fan vote), and it's a good one. The categorization can be a bit random and anyone could argue about the selections, but it's a good all-around sampler collection from all five live-action series with some all-time-classic episodes (sorry, no Animated Series here, though "Yesteryear" or "The Counter-Clock Incident" would have fit). It starts with six episodes from the "Mirror Universe," in which crew members become their psychological opposites and Spock has a beard in "Mirror, Mirror," and in which Deep Space 9 ("Crossover," "Through the Looking Glass," "Shattered Mirror") then Enterprise ("In a Mirror Darkly, Parts 1 and 2," melding the Original Series' "Mirror, Mirror" and Tholian Web episodes) made memorable visits. The next category is "Parallel Dimensions," and in the Original Series episode "The Alternative Factor," Kirk meets two different versions of Lazarus. That's followed by the final-season Next Generation episode "Parallels," in which Worf bounces back and forth among various crew scenarios. The third category, "Twisted Realities," finds two contrasting-personality versions of Kirk in "The Enemy Within" and then his body is taken over by Janice Lester in the final episode of the Original Series, "Turnabout Intruder." That's followed by TNG's "Frame of Mind," in which Riker seems to jump between the ship and a mental hospital, and "Shattered," in which Chakotay experiences numerous stages of Voyager's past.

The final category, "Alternate Lives," has the most episodes (though, oddly, none from the Original Series). It starts with two TNG episodes, "Yesterday's Enterprise" (the highly regarded journey to a militarized Enterprise) and "The Inner Light" (Picard imagining himself leading a "normal" life) and "The Visitor" (also very highly regarded) from DS9 in which a grown-up version of Sisko's son, Jake, grew up without his father. In Voyager's "Before and After," Kes appears to be jumping backward through time, in "Timeless" Chakotay and Paris go back in history to try to repair a past mistake, and all the crew discovers they're duplicates in "Course: Oblivion." Enterprise closes the set with two episodes: "E2," in which Archer is confronted by descendants of the ship's crew, and "Twilight," in which Archer finds himself 12 years in the future with the human-Xindi conflict now over. Extra material includes a 5- to 15-minute featurette on each theme (two each for the "Mirror Universe" and "Alternate Realities") of new interviews with the producers and writers of the episodes plus some archival interviews (indicated by the footage appearing in a different frame) and one new commentary track per disc. --David Horiuchi

Customer Reviews

This box set contains some great episodes.
Peter White
I understand why the Enterprise episode that had the OST "Mirror, Mirror" theme was included, but I didn't care for it all the same.
JMattern
This is one of the best of the Star Trek Collectives; there are four episodes from each of the five series.

The latest in the "Collective" sets, Star Trek: Alternative Realities Collective brings fans 20 episodes, from all five series, with a few new special features at a great price- less than $30. The episodes are divided into four categories, which is a bit confusing given the way they're broken up and arranged.

Among five discs you'll find Mirror Universe (six episodes), Parallel Dimensions (two dimensions), Twisted Realities (four episodes), and Alternative Lives (eight episodes; and no, unfortunately these are not the "gay episodes"). Many of the included episodes fall into various top-ten lists among fan and critic favorites, although there are also a couple of episodes that fall flatly with a giant `clunk.'

Visually, this set falls in at about the same level as past Collective sets. The outer packaging is the same- sturdy paper with slimline cases- and each case has its own artwork both inside and out. Missing from this set is disk artwork- these simply include a listings of the disk's contents.

The navigation system is also similar to previous sets- basic and easy to use, but lacking any animation or music. There are no chapter/scene selection options for individual episodes. Episodes of The Original Series are all the remastered versions, which should make fans happy, as this is a first among the Collectives.

SPECIAL FEATURES

What the Special Features lack in quantity, they more than make up for in quality. Each of the four categories has its own set of special features, all of which include fantastic discussions of the episodes by Star Trek legends.

This set is divided along four themes: Mirror Universe, Twisted Realities, Parallel Dimensions, and Alternative Lives, showcasing some really outstanding stories from the five Trek incarnations.

The "mirror universe" episodes of "Star Trek" allow the respective casts to pursue not just their darker sides but their uninhibited personas, especially in regards to affairs of a sexual nature.

The original series got things started with "Mirror, Mirror," the classic episode with Kirk (William Shatner), Bones (DeForest Kelly), Scotty (James Doohan), and Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) trapped in a reality wherein they belong to a totalitarian society of treachery, deceit, and assassination to get ahead. Guest star Barbara Luna gets to emit one of the best lines in Trek history and Uhura gets to bare some skin and show a don't-mess-with-me attitude when approached by an amorous Sulu (George Takei).

"Deep Space Nine" decided to revisit the same universe in three great episodes ("Crossover," "Through the Looking Glass," and "Shattered Mirror" featured in this compilation and the results are just as titillating. Captain Sisko (Avery Brooks), Dax (Terry Farrell, Chief O'Brien (Colm Meany) and Dr. Bashir (Alexander Siddig)have alternates that are a lot less-restrained than their counterparts, allowing some wonderful interplay between them. Kira (Nana Vistor) gets to meet her alternate self, a woman that has "interests" in both the male and female of the species. Both Odo (Rene Auberjonois) and Worf (Michael Dorn) have evil twins that allow the actors portraying them a change of pace from their regular "goody-goody" roles.

Nobody has wrote an actual review of this product yet, so I guess I'll do it.

This is a pretty neat set, especially compared to the other ones,like the Borg, and Klingon sets that don't give you much more than what you already have if you have the complete season sets. I havn't seen the "Captains" set so I really can't compare it to that. I was skeptical at first when I picked it up because I have all the OST, TNG, and ENT episodes, but the extras were worth it.

The OST episodes are neat in the fact this was the first time I had seen the Remasters on a screen bigger than my ipod.(I downloaded a few for an international flight) And the shots you do see at the begining and end of "Turnabout Intruder" are really cool. There's commentary on quite a few of the episodes. The One for the "Enemy Within" is alot of fun; the Star Trek authors, Judith Reeves-Stevens and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, give alot of fun insight into the mistakes that nitpickers have been point out for years. "Alterantive Factor" is one of my favorites just because it so weird and doesn't really make any sense.

Brana Braga gives commentary on "Parallels", And David Carson gives commentary on "Yesturday's Enterprise". There's a few other commentary's aswell. Sussman on The Enterprise Episode "Twilight" and there's a couple others I think. Each disc has a little documentary on the episodes for that disc.

It's a fun set for fans, who want the Mirror episodes or the better episodes for a particular series but don't like it enough to by the complete sets, for me that would be DS9 and VGR.

And thank god they didn't reissue "All Good Things" again.

Worst of Trek DVD set
I'd have to add "The Lights of Zetar" from the original series' third season. This is the one where it was Scotty's turn to have a romantic fling, but it didn't help the show any. Interestingly enough, Shari Lewis--THAT Shari Lewis--wrote that episode.

For me personally, most episodes... Read More
