Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season Two travels warp speed into the next realm of adventure. Under the leadership of Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), the Enterprise faces a season of new changes and big challenges. With Dr. Crusher on sabbatical, Chief Medical Officer Katherine Pulaski (Diana Muldaur) fills in. And Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg) arrives as 10 Forward’s wise El-Aurian bartender. This voyage explores watershed moments, including Riker (Jonathan Frakes) experiencing the Klingon culture, Data (Brent Spiner) defending his humanity and the introduction of the Borg, a species of terrifying cybernetic conquerors threatening the fate of intelligent life. Presented for the first time on Blu-ray in 1080p high definition and digitally remastered 7.1 sound, this mission is not to be missed.

On to the product itself... I could not be happier. I watched the 25th Anniversary Reunion first, called Reunification (fitting!). It was interesting to watch the entire main cast (minus Denise Crosby) interact with one another in a casual setting. The fifth disc also includes two additional high-def special features that make up "Make It So, Continuing Star Trek: The Next Generation." It's essentially a continuation of the mini-docs on the Season One set. There's plenty of stock footage of old interviews, newer interviews from recent years, and even brand new interview footage of Diana Muldaur, which was was a real treat. Gates McFadden talks candidly about why she was fired and why she came back. John deLancie is interviewed.
I have not watched extended version of "The Measure of a Man" yet, but I can't wait. The fact that we got an extended episode - fifteen or so entire extra minutes - added back into the episode in full HD where it was originally shot is amazing. My only hope is there'll be more extended episodes on future sets. I would love to see an extended "Yesterday's Enterprise" or "The Offspring" or "The Best of Both Worlds" on Season Three. As with the first season set, the second set includes all the original episodic promos plus the original DVD extras.
As for the quality of the second season, my opinion of it has elevated over the years. At first I was turned off because I did not like the character of Dr. Pulaski. Diana Muldaur is a great actress, loved her on L.A. Law but I didn't feel she gelled well in the TNG cast. I do feel if she had stuck around for the third season this would have improved, however I was happy that Gates returned to the series. Dr. Crusher fit better. We also get the addition of Ten Forward and Guinan, played by Whoopi Goldberg of course. The quality of the writing clearly improved during Season Two. Yes there are some downright silly episodes and special effects, but overall the episodes are good. "The Measure of a Man" is of course, astounding. Also good are "Pen Pals," "Elementary, Dear Data," "The Emissary," "Q Who?" "Peak Performance." I was very disappointed in "Shades of Grey" as a season-closer. I suspect this was due to the writers's strike and the fact that the season missed four episodes.
I do hope since the even-numbered seasons are being farmed out that we get future releases more quickly. I did read on TrekCore.com that a first quarter 2013 release is likely.
Do yourself a favor and skip the last episode ("Shades of Grey"). It is almost entirely a flash back episode and does nothing to drive the plot or the characters' development forward. the writing is also terrible and the solution to the main problem of the episode is scientifically stupid and I am amazed that the actress playing Dr. Pulaski (a replacement for Dr. Crusher) can keep a straight face. However, I would not judge the season by that episode as it is generally considered one of the worst ever for Next Generation and was caused by the writers strike at the time.
