Season 4 of Star Trek: The Next Generation seemed like the year of family. After quickly resolving the breathtaking cliffhanger of "The Best of Both Worlds," the show took pains to show some of what the Federation was fighting for. We meet Picard's brother, Data's father, Tasha's sister, and Worf's adoptive human parents, plus an old flame with a surprise son in tow. The Klingon heritage subplot that begins here and builds to the cliffhanger finale ("Redemption") would continue to the show's end and through into Worf's reappearance in Deep Space Nine.
The year also explored the implications of Data, Lwaxana Troi, Geordi, and Dr. Crusher being in love, while Miles O'Brien (given a first name at last) married Keiko. There were old friends revisited: the ubiquitous Q in a hilarious Robin Hood romp ("Qpid"), perennial screwup Reg Barclay ("Nth Degree"), and even the mysterious Traveler from season 1's "Where No One Has Gone Before" (played by Eric Menyuk, who was nearly cast as Data). There were new races introduced who would have an important bearing on Trek's destiny: the Cardassians and the Trill. Most of all, though, there were the one-off stories that impressed: "Clues," with its memory-loss mystery; "Night Terrors," with some genuine frights; and "Identity Crisis," with possibly the only time Trek technology really helped Geordi solve a puzzle. Then right at the end, reinforcing the year's familial theme, Denise Crosby returned as her own half-Romulan daughter! --Paul Tonks

The beauty of old series being shot on film is that they can be scanned at a higher resolution even 4k or beyond and that old detail can be brought up to today's standards.
The producers of this series did not stop there. After scanning in the film, the digital effects were updated. It's a spectacular upgrade to an old favorite. I was blown away and am happy with the purchase to say the least.
The show is still formatted 4:3, but I think it's a good thing.
First off, the transfer is fantastic! The colors and sounds are sharp and crystal clear. It's just amazing on how awesome this looks and sounds. The stories are fantastic. Even if you've seen them, as I have, when you see the blu ray, it's like you're watching them for the first time.
Second, the stories are just fantastic. They'll keep the trekkie in all of of hooked to the screen.
If you know a trekkie in your life, or if you're one yourself, then get it. I know you or your trekkie won't be sorry. I know I wasn't. I look forward to when I can sit down and enjoy an episode.
Episodes were hit and miss, although most episodes were quite good.The characters I couldn't stand were recurring-Q ,Deanna's mother and the Ferengui
