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.Read more ›
Darmok -- Picard is forced into a dangerous encounter with the captain of an alien starship. (Stars Paul Winfield from Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan, The Terminator, and Cliffhanger. Also stars Ashley Judd from Heat, and High Crimes)
Ensign Ro -- The Enterprise crew becomes an unwitting pawn in a deadly conspiracy masterminded by a Starfleet admiral.
Silicon Avatar -- The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise risks all in an attempt to communicate with a destructive force known as the Crystalline Entity before a visiting scientist can destroy it.
Disaster -- Troi holds the lives of the crew in her hands when she is forced to act as captain after the Enterprise is seriously damaged by a rare, natural phenomenon.
The Game -- The fate of the Federation is in Wesley Crusher's hands when he returns to the Enterprise to find the rest of the crew addicted to a dangerous new game. (Stars Ashley Judd from Heat, and High Crimes)
Unification, Part I -- Picard and Data travel to Romulus to investigate an unauthorized mission undertaken by the Federation's legendary Mr. Spock. (Stars Mark Lenard from Star Trek movies, and Planet of the Apes. Also stars Leonard Nimoy from Star Trek movies, voice in Transformers: The Movie and Atlantis: The Lost Empire)

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.Read more ›

|No paper sleeve?||
yes, i noticed it too. I have been catching up with the releases and have gotten 1-4. 2-4 have the sleeve but 1 did not. I have refrained from getting 5 because I noticed the picture without it. I know it seems like such a small thing, but it bugs me lol

|Cheaper places than Amazon?||
Amazon has dropped the price just prior to shipment before every other ST:TNG Blu-ray release. I always pre-order and wait for the price to drop.
