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 fourth season got to a tremendous start with many action-packed and essential episodes:
1) "THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS, PART II. Like the first part, that episode has great music, action, acting, plot, and suspense. Although the first part os just a tad bit better, the second part has all you expect from a borg episode: Spaceship fights, good special effects, stuff exploding, phaser fights, etc.
2) "REUNION." (The second episode out of four in the Worf saga) After Sins of the Father, what I consider to be the first part in the rough quadrilogy involving Worf, came "REUNION," which is even better than the first part. Worf's girlfriend comes back (along with his unexpected son) and so do many characters from the "SINS OF THE FATHER" as Worf must confront old enemies and try to gain back his honor. Directed by Jonathan Frakes, this episode has great special effects, good acting, and a great fight at the end. Bring on the third part!
3) "REMEMBER ME." A great episode which emphasizes on Dr. Crusher. Although this episode is not really known for its action, it does have cool concepts and great suspense.
After those ground-breaking episdoes, there were more character-based and humorous episodes.
1) "DATA'S DAY." I can't say enough about how great this episode is. All of the characters have funny lines, Chief O'Brien gets married, and of course anything with DATA in the title has to be good.
2) "BROTHERS.Read more ›
As expected, this Blu-ray is another winner. The A/V quality is again top notch, with all of the live action footage again being rescanned, cut and remastered by CBS Digital. The clarity on display here is simply astounding, as you probably already know if you've seen earlier seasons of TNG on Blu-ray. New CGI and effects shots were handled by Modern VideoFilm, who have done a very good job in ensuring that the quality is nearly as good as Seasons 1 and 3. Though a few shots stand out for the wrong reasons, it's still a quality effort considering the deadlines involved. I'd imagine that most fans, again, will be enormously pleased with the results. The audio is also fantastic, and it's available in 7.1 and the original 2.0 stereo.
As far as extras go, there are some good ones here, but overall it's a small step down from the ones we got with Season 3. These include a two-part documentary, a chat with the TNG art department, several deleted scenes, a gag reel, old Archive Mission Logs, the original episode promos and more. Though yes, these TNG seasons are priced very high, they're definitely worth the extra cash. A lot of love went into this release and it shows.
