This new "feature-length edit", like the one created for the Blu-ray release of "The Best of Both Worlds", is a little weak. Both halves are simply mushed together with no real transition...and though some time has passed between the events of Parts I and II, you wouldn't know it by the way the two scenes are suddenly cut together. I'll definitely watch it "the traditional way" in the future; like "BOBW", some things just can't be improved by further editing. I don't mind getting up to switch discs, honest.
The Blu-ray tech specs, on the other hand, are fantastic. As expected, the A/V presentation is top notch, with brilliant picture quality and two different audio mixes (7.1 and the original 2.0 stereo). Two terrific extras are also included, a 30-minute behind-the-scenes documentary with members of the cast and crew, as well as a full-length audio commentary with writer Ronald Moore and Michael & Denise Okuda. Overall, it's a decent buy for TNG collectors, but only if you have money left over after buying the fourth season. Like the "BOBW" Blu-ray, this is just an interesting curiosity.

"Redemption" was not favorite two-part episode from 'The Next Generation,' however it's still a great story and offers a more fascinating look inside Klingon culture and politics. The extras on the set include interviews with Michael Dorn (Worf), Robert O'Reilly (Gowron), Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar/Sela), and Gwyneth Walsh (B'Etor). In the interests of consistency, since CBS Digital is handling the remaster of the upcoming release of Season Five, CBS-D handled the first part of "Redemption" which also appears on the final disc of Season Four. I compared the quality of "Redemption, Part I" on the Season Four set to many of the other episodes on the Season Four set and I cannot really discern a difference. Perhaps others can; my guess is if you're not working in the field you're not going to tell the difference. The quality of the remaster is stunning!
You also have to love how fans like myself gladly just say "shut up and take my money." Well, although I've never been a big fan of the double-dipping when there is nothing added other than gimmicks and packaging, this release, like the release of the 'Best of Both Worlds' two-parter, is worth spending the $15 on.
What they've done, if you don't know is taken the season four cliffhanger, Redemption and seamlessly spliced it together with the season five premiere, Redemption, Part II, and made it into one big long, movie-like episode... the way it should be seen. Unlike some fans, I've never had that much of a nerd-boner over Redemption but I certainly can appreciate what they've done here and what they continue to do with the cliffhangers and the season premieres for the Blu-ray releases. I also appreciate the fact that these two-parters act as entry vehicles for fans who haven't been convinced to commit to TNG remastered on Blu-ray because they own $800 worth of DVDs they purchased just a decade ago.
That being said, if a butt-hurt fan who's mad at CBS for taking more of their money isn't convinced to go all Blu-ray for TNG after seeing this (or BoBW) then they never will be.
As with all of the TNG Blu-ray releases, the video and audio quality is absolutely stunning and the re-composited and re-masterd effects are breathtaking.

If they brought in extra footage and/or worked to make the "commercial breaks" flow better, it might be worth double dipping. I'd definitely want to hear reviews first, though.
