Editorial Reviews

Set in the 24th century and decades after the adventures of the original crew of the starship Enterprise, this new series is the long-awaited successor to the original Star Trek (1966). Under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, the all new Enterprise NCC 1701-D travels out to distant planets to seek out new life and to boldly go where no one has gone before.

"STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION", the series which is noted for its popularity and winning 18 Emmy Awards and the first syndicated television show to be nominated for an Emmy for Best Dramatic Series. Back in the late 80's and early 90's, I practically became a Trekker because of this series. The well-written storylines, awesome acting and most of all, hoping that this series can generate interest in encouraging further development of technology and possibly more research and development in the space program.

The series was shot entirely in 35mm film, among the first shows to be recorded in Dolby Surround and would feature four feature films with the characters from the series and also help pave the way for three more "STAR TREK" related series. The TV series was released on VHS and all episodes released on DVD and in 2006, "Fan Collective" DVD box sets containing ten episodes that were voted by fans revolving around the theme of the "Borg", "Time Travel", "Q" and "Klingon".

With the release of the latest "Star Trek" film, Paramount has released the Blu-ray edition of the "Star Trek: The Original Series - First Season" and the first six films. On DVD, Paramount has released "THE BEST OF STAR TREK" for "The Original Series" and "The Next Generation".

"THE BEST OF STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION" features a total of four episodes: THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS (PART I), THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS (PART II), YESTERDAY'S ENTERPRISE and THE MEASURE OF A MAN.

The following four "STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION" episodes are featured in standard definition (4:3).

3.0 out of 5 stars "Best of" is a bit generous. June 13, 2009
The Best of Star Trek: The Next Generation

Less than a week after the new motion picture hit the big screen, Paramount rushed two single disk "Best of" DVD releases to the store shelves with no bonus material, and a mere four episodes per disk. One might accept four episodes chosen out of the 79 episodes from the original series, but, one could reasonably expect more episodes to be included in "The Best of Star Trek: The Next Generation" considering the complete series consists of more than twice as many episodes as its predecessor. One might also expect better episodes than the four included. These four aren't terrible, but all represent writing that rush the all to convenient endings almost as much as the releases were rushed into production.

The four episodes include a two part outing featuring the relentless Borg, a story revolving around the rights of Data to control his "life", and a story with time travel at it's center, which has become a tired theme in the Star Trek franchise.

The first offering in the collection is "The Best of Both Worlds" (Part 1) which aired on June 18th, 1990 and served as the cliffhanger conclusion to season three of this iconic series. In this episode, which was written by Michael Piller and directed by Cliff Bole, we find the Federation unprepared for the inevitable encounter with the hostile Borg with whom we became familiar in episode sixteen "Q Who" of season two. In part one of "Best of Both Worlds" Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) is captured by the Borg and assimilated. Riker (Jonathan Frakes), who is dealing with an aggressive up and coming officer who is after his job, and concerns about his career choices, must give the order to blow up the Borg vessel with Picard (Now called Locutus of Borg) aboard.

3.0 out of 5 stars For the casual fan only! May 12, 2009
I have bought the other compilation sets (Time Travel, Klingon etc.) as they are a great compromise between not owning them or buying the entire series. Unfortunately all these episodes are already released in the other compilations. I see this as an impulse buy by the people that just saw the New Movie and want a bit more. I still gave it 3 stars as these episodes are really indeed some of the best.

Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD used to expose my children (6, 7, 9, and 11) to Star Trek: The Next Generation, a series I watched avidly before they were born. We watched the four episodes in four days, and have since started watching the entire series, starting with season one. The four episodes on this DVD are truly some of the best-made. The Best of Both Worlds is my favorite TNG episode.

So, I am giving this four stars, but if you have Netflix, you can save your money, as all of the Next Generation seasons have recently been made available for streaming.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Set for the Casual Fan March 15, 2009
By Derek
Verified Purchase
If you are not a diehard trekkie and don't own all the seasons of the series or the fan collectives then this along with the 2nd volume are an inexpensive way to get some of the top episodes of the show. Of the four episodes included in volume 1 "Best of Both Worlds I & II" not only introduces the Borg but is undoubtably the most action packed two-parter that ST:TNG ever had and this movie length episode is better then any of the theatrical ST: TNG films, " Yesterday's Enterprise" is a fan favorite episode that brings back a beloved character and deals with time travel and alternate timelines, and "The Measure of A Man" features Data, one of ST:TNG's most popular characters, in a courtroom drama that debates the sentiency of an android.
While the 2nd volume has some outstanding episodes also, I felt that it was too Picard and/or time anomaly centered and would have liked to have seen other characters from the series, especially Worf, get a spotlight episode. Of the four episodes in volume 2 "Inner Light" and "Tapestry" both show Picard living very different lives, "Cause and Effect" has the Enterprise caught in a time loop where events keep repeating themselves, and "Relics" features a guest appearance by a member of ST:TOS cast and deals with aging. My personal favorites of volume 2 are "Tapestry" and "Relics".
Hopefully, a volume 3 will be released, making "the best of" an even dozen. If so, I would hope that they would include "Sins of the Father" ( a great Worf episode), "First Duty" ( an excellent episode spotlighting Wesley Crusher) and the two-part series ending episode "All Good Things".
