The epic two-part story seamlessly unified into one feature length presentation! Leonard Nimoy reprises his iconic role as Spock and joins the crew of the Enterprise(R) in this fan-favorite double episode! When the Federation calls for help in locating an ambassador suspected of defecting, Picard is troubled to learn that Spock is the one who has vanished. Seeking information from Spock's ailing father, Sarek, and unlikely help from the Klingons, Picard and his crew find the ambassador pursuing a personal mission on Romulus: a Vulcan/Romulan reunification. But though the Romulans claim to support the same goal, their motives are not what they seem.

The episodes themselves look great in HD and I constantly find myself noticing the little details on the costumes, props and the work done with the lighting. I think it's great that the folks who worked so hard behind-the-scenes for this show can finally receive more recognition for their work! Standard definition doesn't do this show justice!
The included documentary has a few nice moments spread throughout and features several of the cast and crew.
I particularly enjoyed the audio commentary which features Jeri Taylor alongside Michael and Denise Okuda. The Okudas bring their encyclopedic knowledge of Trek while Taylor tells us her history in Hollywood, how she came to Star Trek, and of course some of her memories writing Unification.
The packaging for this Blu-ray is distinctive (you can see the neat cover design with Spock and Picard) as well as a surprise outer case that opens out into a large spread featuring the characters from the episode as well as that gorgeous new shot of the Enterprise from the Zakdorn Surplus Depot (see my customer image for a look!)
Some folks are irritated by CBS putting out these separate releases with unique content but I don't mind. At least CBS makes these releases WORTHWHILE with the bonus content (back in the dark times of Paramount shoveling out cheap garbage, this release would've cost the same and probably included nothing but the episodes and SD previews). Besides, it's a good way for Trek fans to enjoy some of the big moments in Trek without having to invest the money for the complete collection. These little releases also have good potential as stocking stuffers to introduce people to TNG!
I wouldn't recommend buying at full list price but there are numerous opportunities for getting the Blu-ray at a discount. Keep your eyes out!
The blu ray treatment adds to the episode by giving the viewer top notch picture and sound. The merging of both parts into one presentation makes this event easy to obtain for everyone from casual fans to the die hards.
