I have been a long time Star Trek: The Next Generation fan so when it was announced that CBS was going to redo the entire TNG series on Bluray I was very excited. For years, I had to put up with lackluster video quality on my TNG DVDs, especially in the earlier seasons. The later seasons on DVD looked a lot better than say Season 1 but still I always just made the excuse that the show was made in 1987 and that was that.

Well oh my goodness this release on Bluray goes beyond my expectations.

Video Quality
If you own the TNG DVDs or have watched them on cable you will immediately realize that the jump up in video quality is SUBSTANTIAL! It is literally a night and day difference. The colors no longer look washed out or faded. Skin tones are natural. The level of detail in some shots is so impressive it almost looks like it was shot recently. Amazingly enough, some of the details that were unable to be seen in the DVDs can now be seen quite easily, such as computer readouts or text on doors, hallways, etc. The special effects were also re-composited and in some cases CG was used if they were unable to find the original film. For example, the Chrystalline entity was completely redone with CG and it looks VERY GOOD!! All episodes from Season 1 have been updated in HD except for 2 secs of "We'll always have Paris," because they couldn't find the original film. The 2 secs in upcoverted SD is noticeable if you're looking for it. The menu for the episode actually notifies you of this missing footage (a nice touch). Overall, the video upgrade is so good that it makes worth upgrading your TNG DVDs on that point alone!

Also, the show is in 4:3 not 16:9.

The quality is simply amazing. Sure, it's in 4:3 - even on HD widescreen tv's. But they had no choice because the original filming won't allow for widescreen. I owned the whole series on DVD and plan on replacing them with each season on blu-ray. If you're a Star Trek fan, you have to get it...and the better it sells, the more likely that they will come out with Deep Space Nine next!

I'm not going to give an exhaustive guide featuring a synopsis of every episode in this set. Instead, I'll be focusing on the audio and visual presentation, and the overall quality of this first season.

For those of you who might not know, Star Trek Next Generation (STNG) ran for seven seasons, spawning 176 (mainly) 45-minute episodes, and five movies featuring the crew. This first season made its debut with a 92-minute episode, Encounter at Far Point, which introduced the new crew, and gave audiences a glimpse of a new entity named Q (John de Lancie).

Before I talk about the merits of the show, there's an important piece of information that you need to be aware of if you are considering a purchase. The initial pressings contained several audio issues on three of the discs. Paramount offers free replacements without the need to send in the defective copies. In order to avoid having to do that, look carefully at the set before you buy it. Corrected copies have a yellow bar code on the back and the red Star Trek symbol on the spine.

Let's talk about the show.

I believe STNG to be the strongest of the five live action series set in the Star Trek universe, and it's not close. The original Star Trek has a certain nostalgic value and it was the first of it's kind. Voyager is enjoyable, and ranks second in my list. Enterprise is watchable, but without the same level of interest. Deep Space Nine is a show that I could never get into, despite multiple efforts.

STNG holds the top spot in my rankings because it has the best acting, the most convincing relationships, the strongest characterization, and a large number of well-written stories. However, my memory of the show proved to be imperfect.

Paramount's Blu-Ray reissues of this fine show have been going on for quite a while, and I'm late to the party, but that doesn't mean I can't chime in. When I was 8 years old, my parents sat me down for the premier episode of a show they had watched when they themselves were young. I had no idea what to expect, but there I was, wide-eyed and in awe at the spectacle before me. According to my parents, Star Trek, a very popular sci-fi TV show, had returned in a completely new form, called 'The Next Generation.' At the time, I had no familiarity with Kirk, Spock, McCoy, the Enterprise, phasers, tribbles, or vulcan neck pinches, so I truly was entering my own personal final frontier. This gave me a fresh 'in the moment' perspective that carried me through the wondrous combination of attractive visual and special effects, soaring music, and a truly uplifting story. I immediately fell into my own time vortex, going back into the past to uncover the original series, while reading up on the lore of the Star Trek universe. I never became a full-fledged "Trekker," as the diehard fans demand to be called, but I did rank ST:TNG in my top 3 favourite sci-fi shows of all time.

After circling the big green DVD collector's box set of the show for years without pulling the trigger, Paramount caught my attention with the announcement of the Blu-Ray releases. What could have been a shamelessly opportunistic attempt at a cash-in soon turned into one of the most painstaking works of love I've ever seen. ST:TNG has landed on Blu-Ray, becoming the best and most definitive way to watch this classic series. The first thing you'll notice is the jaw-dropping remaster of every single episode.
