A new director of photography was brought whose lighting technique allowed them to get rid of that "this is obviously filmed in a studio" look when creating planet side sequences. This season also has some of the best scores to accompany the series before it became a constant rehash of the same orchestral sequences later on in the programme. Ron Jones does a particularly excellent job, especially with "The Best of Both Worlds" and newcomer Jay Chattaway's score to "Tin Man" turned a mediocre episode into something more emotional.
This season shines with great episodes such as The Enemy (Romulans!), The Defector (real spy thriller stuff), The Hunted, The High Ground (terrorist episode). There are however 2 stunners: "Yesterday's Enterprise" and "The Best of Both Worlds." Alternative timelines and the Borg have always made some of the best episodes - Yesterday's Enterprise gives Tasha Yar a chance to return for an episode where the Federation is still at war with the Klingons. The Best of Both Worlds is the high point of the entire series - great story, great effects, great music, and that feeling of "they can't do that" when the "To be continued...." line appeared on the screen. Great stuff.

I got my set today and have watched three episodes so far. Even though I already own the first two seasons in Blu-Ray, I'm still totally blown away by the quality of the picture. It is just amazing to see such a clear image and vibrant colors and updated special efx.
Things I've noticed so far that I could not have noticed from the regular DVD's : In the first few episodes Wil Wheaton has some really bad acne problems going on and every tiny little mole and pimple show up amazingly clear (okay so that's NOT so awesome, but it's there), I've noticed a smudge of eyeliner under Dr. Crusher's eye for an entire scene, a dirt stain on the Captain's sleeve, but my favorite thing to do is to pause the playback when they show computer text on the LCARS screen. You could never read what the designers wrote until now, and let me tell you, they had a really warped sense of humor. I was actually laughing out loud at some of the things they wrote in "Ensigns of Command" for the Sheliac Treaty. I won't spoil it, you'll have to discover it yourself.
And finally, along with the hi-def bloopers, we finally get to see footage of David Rappaport as the original Kivas Fajo in "The Most Toys". Again, that alone is worth the price of admission, a very rare (albeit sad) treat for TNG fans.
I don't have a lot of money, I'm out of work on disability and have to make every penny count. But I can tell you I would have gladly paid more for this set of episodes, and I can't wait until the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th seasons to come out. I'll never get tired of watching TNG in this format, it's truly beautiful work they've done in putting all this together!Read more ›

I love these old Star Trek reruns. They offer a future that is much better than what we have at present. They are very entertaining, clean, and escapist!Published 1 day ago by Anthony Horn
