Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Warping into syndication in 1987, Star Trek: The Next Generation successfully launched its seven-season "continuing mission" of the starship Enterprise, and this classy DVD boxed set gathers the show's inaugural season in crisp picture clarity and dazzling 5.1-channel sound. A ratings leader with a sharp ensemble cast, this revamped Trek honored series creator Gene Roddenberry's original Trek concept, nurtured by returning veterans like producer Robert H. Justman and writers D.C. Fontana and David Gerrold. Several first-season episodes have original-series counterparts, and while the season was awkwardly inconsistent for all involved (including Roddenberry's heir apparent, producer Rick Berman), in retrospect the series began on remarkably solid footing.

Patrick Stewart was perfect as Enterprise Captain Jean-Luc Picard, while Marina Sirtis struggled with a wretched hair bun and an ill-defined character, eventually blessing Counselor Troi with delicate nuance. Denise Crosby made a strong but underutilized impression as Security Chief Tasha Yar, and left the series before season's end, allowing writers to develop Klingon Lieutenant Worf (Michael Dorn) into a fan favorite. Brent Spiner transcended Spock comparisons with his triumphant portrayal of the android Lieutenant Commander Data; and while Jonathan Frakes was accepted as First Officer Will Riker, fans ultimately rejected Wil Wheaton as ensign Wesley Crusher, the teenaged son of the ship's doctor (Gates McFadden). Still, these 25 episodes laid a firm foundation for subsequent seasons, and highlights include the Raymond Chandleresque "holo- novel" of "The Big Goodbye," Data's backstory in "Datalore," the Klingon rituals of "Heart of Glory," and a Romulan encounter in "The Neutral Zone." The DVD supplements (all on the seventh disc) are good enough to make anyone wish for more: four featurettes recall myriad first-season challenges, filled with insider perspective and enough NextGen trivia to satiate all but the most obsessive Trekkers back on Earth. Looking back, it's easy to see why NextGen lived long and prospered. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 1 March 4 2003
Format:DVD
Content:
Although some people feel that season 1 was the worst season for TNG, I thought that it had some great stories. Some of my favorite TNG episodes are from season 1. Althought the cast is not yet at their best, it is still good acting and some of what is actually future character development I think is mistaken as a bad portrayal of the character. Season 1 has a lot of good stories and some truely great stories as well. As for the DVD representation, I was not disappointed at all. The menu system looks good and is easy to operate. The picture quality was good. I have read some reviews that say the picture was too dark, but I would have to disagree with these reviews. And I personally like the fact that it was not done in widescreen since it was originally broadcast for television, not widescreen. I was most impressed with the sound quality which is excellent.
Packaging:
Season 1 is packaged in a box with a brushed metal look to it which I think is quite sharp. When you open the box you will find that the inside front cover lists all the discs and what episodes they contain. This outside box contains a fold out book of sorts which holds all the discs plus a booklet introducing the main characters as well as listing the season 1 episodes. Although the disc container book seems a bit awkward, it does look nice and it all has the added advantage of looking impressive sitting on the bookshelf. Especially if you have all seven seasons!
Conclusion:
In conclusion, I have found this set to be most impressive and would recommend it to any star trek fan, or even those who consider themselves casual viewers. Except for 3 or 4 of the episodes, the stories are good to great, and the acting is good.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good start to a great series... Feb. 6 2003
Format:DVD
This first season of TNG has many ups and downs, but has some classic episodes and delivers for the Trek fan. It begins with the two-hour "Encounter at Farpoint," where the crew of the new Enterprise-D meet Q, an omnipotent being with powers like no one has ever seen. Q puts the human race on trial, and Captain Picard challenges Q to a test. Needless to say, Picard passes with flying colors, and the crew moves on.
While the first ten or so episodes are a bit lukewarm and strongly lacking in special effects, they are different from the rest of the season. Sometimes ("Haven") it's better, but mostly ("The Battle," "The Naked Now," "Justice") it's just not that good. Everything picks up, though, with episodes like "The Big Goodbye," "Datalore," "Coming of Age," "Symbiosis," "Hide and Q," "Conspiracy," and "The Neutral Zone."
The season does not feel consistent through most episodes, but the cast feels comfortable in their parts. What lied ahead for this crew would turn out to be the best "Star Trek" series yet, and a few good movies, too!

Format:DVD
This box set is the best set of movies I own on vhs/dvd period. I have absolutely gotten my moneys worth out of it already and i have only watched it once!! 26 episodes that's awesome. I'm not even a really huge trek fan but something always drew me to stng. It must be the characters. I think Paramount did a wonderful job in packaging this set. The sound and picture quality are good. The menu's are simple and easy to navigate. My only complaint on the menu's is that after each movie you have to kick back out to the main menu, then select the next episode, then push play. While that option is fine I just wish there was a play all episodes option on each dvd. Near perfection will have to do!
The character development is execeptional. Specifically in Capt. Picard, the first couple episodes he is very, very hard and unpersonable especially on poor wesley crusher but by the end of the season you really respect him, for he has proven to be the strongest character on the show. You can also see the evolution of Data in this first season. Data to me is the comic relief of this show even though he can't comprehend humor! As for the other characters you don't see a lot of change to them in this first season.
Now as far as specific episodes go i feel it's unjust to rate. Some are better than others....to me. But you might think otherwise. If you are this far into my review you've most likely seen the episodes already and have your fav's. You are probaly deabting on if you should buy it or not. It is a bunch of money, but it's worth every penny that much I can guarantee you!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Making the best of what they were given. April 8 2002
Format:DVD
Season One was a great season when compared to the preceeding shows of the genre. It's stories were imaginative and straddled the line from the original series to the "next generation". It was akin to introducing a new food to a child; People knew what Star Trek was based on Kirk and company only, and to thrust such a radically different universe on them as Season 3 (or higher) was would have turned them off to this new "flavor". The video defects mentioned are NOT due to it's translation onto home media. Rather, they were quite present during the original run; ST:TNG was one of the first shows to be filmed on digital tape, and was sensitive to the equipment used in editing. It's most noticable in the first episode during Picard's close-ups. It doesn't last long, and doesn't detract from the Farpoint storyline. This is a must-own DVD collection that has been too long waiting in the wings. Bravo Paramount!
