Editorial Reviews

Tensions rise as a possible Cardassian attack looms, and Picard, Dr. Crusher and Worf are sent on a secret mission to find and destroy suspected biological weapons. The headstrong replacement captain, Edward Jellico, is cold and demanding - to the dismay of the remaining crew. But when Picard is captured by the Cardassians and tortured for information, dismay turns to anger and resistance as Jellico's plans exclude a rescue mission. With his options running out, Picard must fight to save his sanity and ultimately, his life.

As usual, the Amazon Community is showing its idiotic side with its users reviewing products that they don't even own or, in this case, particularly understand. Because of that, I'm forced to write yet another review just to negate the reviews of people complaining about such nonsense as 'double dipping," which has zero bearing on the quality of the product.

Since A. Hutch decided to pull his head out of his Dynasty DVDs and 3-ring binders that he mysoginistically reviewed and share his opinion of a Blu-ray title that he hasn't seen, doesn't own and has no intention of owning while lacing his review with clever expressions from the late 80s/early 90s (which in retrospect is kind of appropriate from a nostalgic perspective when doing a review of a TNG product), I thought it only fair that I respond to him personally and then write my own rebuttal review to straighten out any misconceptions surrounding these double-episode TNG Blu-ray releases.

First, I'll address the misconceptions (by basically copying and pasting what I said to Mr. Hutch, and trimming it a bit).

Although Mr. Hutch would argue otherwise, this isn't being released for the audio commentary track (I can't really comment as to whether or not the season six set has the same audio commentaries or not... as, like this title, it's not out yet and that information isn't available) or to take more money out of the pockets of Star Trek fans for no reason. It's being released for two reasons: 1.) Because it's a fan/critical favorite and it's a great teaser for fans sitting on the fence on whether to commit to TNG on BD or not. 2.) It's not the same presentation that's in the season six set.

For the record, I have a pre-release copy of this title (obtained from the studio) that I also reviewed for DVD Talk.

Those following "Star Trek: The Next Generation"'s release on Blu-ray should be familiar with CBS/Paramount's strategy of stand-alone releases alongside the excellent season collections. "The Best of Both Worlds" was the first such stand-alone release, offering a seamless edit of the popular episode and a few exclusive extras. "Redemption" followed suit: it wasn't as good of an episode, but the exclusive extras made it worth a look. "Unification" was actually a two-part episode from Season Five (not a season finale/opener), which meant that anyone who bought the full season set would only be getting this for the extras (and the slightly new cut, of course).

"Chain of Command" (a two-parter from Season Six) is one of TNG's very best episodes, hands down. In just a matter of minutes, it shakes things up nicely and eventually shows us Picard in a much more vulnerable light. His scenes with the ruthless Gul Lemec (Daivd Warner, who acted with Partick Stewart in the Royal Shakespeare Company) are second to none, and the Enterprise crew's relationship with acting Captain Jellico (Ronny Cox) are terrific too. CBS has once again stepped up to the plate with a flawless A/V presentation, which involved assembling the newly-scanned original film footage to replace the material that was previously edited on videotape. It's outstanding work that will impress new fans and give old ones yet another reason to appreciate this series.

I've come to terms with these TNG stand-alone releases, since the "exclusive" extras are created for them and not deliberately held back from the Season Six collection.

'Chain of Command' is my favorite two-parter so I was excited this episode was chosen as the standalone to accompany Season Six. I know a lot of fans feel like CBS-D is double-dipping and gouging fans, but you have to remember:

The budgets for the full-season sets are fixed. It's easy to say "these extra features could have been added to the full season set," but in reality that is not true. I don't really purchase the standalone discs for the episodes, I purchase them for the documentaries and the deleted scenes and whatever commentary is provided. Producing a standalone disc gives the team at CBS-D that produces the new bonus material an extra, albeit smaller, budget to work with.

If you're a TNG fan who simply cares about the HD restoration - and you really don't care for the documentaries, deleted scenes, and commentary - I would say this release is not for you. You can still enjoy "Chain of Command" in two parts on the Season Six set. If you like all the added extras this is for you.

This single disc Special Edition Mini Blu-Ray T.V movie from Star Trek The Next Generation Season Six, arrived on time and intact, with no damage to either the disc or the case and outer slipcover, which the disc came in. Picture, sound and features playback is superb. A very well written and very well acted episode from the Next Generation series, which looks deeply in to all aspects of human confinement and torture, with its various dark twists and turns with both Patrick Steward (Captain Picard) and David Warner (Cardassian Jailer/Protaganist), putting in first class performances, throughout this complete two part episode feature. I would highly recommend this complete two part story episode, season six episode from Star Trek The Next Generation on Blu-Ray, to anyone who purchases it online from amazon.com.

Idiots reviewing an UN-RELEASED Blu-Ray
BD has nothing to do with aspect ratio. You don't consider the BD of The Maltese Falcon to be a true BD? B/c it is, regardless of what you think. No one complains about older films being upgraded to BD when they have a different aspect ratio.
