You'd be hard pressed to find a better collection of top-notch Star Trek episodes anywhere. Picard is one of the best Star Trek captains ever and Patrick Stewart the best actor to appear in the series. So right there you've got a winning combo. Add to that some of TNG's most interesting, thought provoking, and emotionally compelling episodes and you just can't loose.
Included on this DVD are the episodes:
The Big Goodbye
The Drumhead
The Inner Light
Combined they not only provide a well rounded study of Picard but show off the heights to which TNG sailed. Anyone who is a fan of the show who didn't get the complete series on DVD or would like to be introduced to TNG should pick up this DVD collection.

I cannot understand the attitude of collectors that call this set "double-dipping". After all,you don't have to buy it,do you? No-one is twisting any collectors arm.
If you are a non-collector that just wants a "best of" series then sets like this are fine.
For example,there maybe fans that don't want to buy the largely mediocre first season of Star Trek:The Next Generation,but do want the Peabody Award winning episode "The Big Goodbye" from that season which is on this set. If that is the case,then this set is ideal for them.
In fact,one of the things that has been neglected by studios is that "best of" sets would be a good idea for fans of TV shows that don't want all of the episodes. I think that would be a very good thing.
"Best of" sets do have their place for fans that don't want to waste money on bad Trek episodes like "The Way To Eden,Angel One,Q-Less,Bride Of Chaotica" and other stinkers from the various Star Trek shows. I could make a bigger list of the bad episodes,but this review would take up too many pages.
Wouldn't it be nice if fans could buy the best episodes on any television series on one DVD set? I think that would be a great idea that would be embraced by some buyers.
This set also has a non-Trek documentary narrated by Patrick Stewart called "From Here To Infinity" which makes a nice extra.

The Next Generation was a great series; and Patrick Stewart was the central person that brought such a quality to it. If he wasn't there for the first attempt at an offshoot series from the original series from the 60s .. who knows if Deep Space or Voyager would have ever been made; let alone the long run of The Next Generation. Also the quality of stories was superior and one wonders if having access to Stewart allowed the writers the confidence to put quality material out there.
In any case; there are a number of great episodes packaged together at a REASONABLE price. One hopes this will be the tip of the iceberg for these collections. My FAVORITE Episode is The Drumhead; very timely given the time of its release around the "Whitewater" investigations. The final 5 minutes of the episode is absolutely outstanding with a moral so strongly and convincingly explained. I only have to look to my office or church to see this same danger is always "waiting" for the "right atomosphere to florish". That episode alone is worth the price of the disc.
I watch the other episodes and they are also terrific. The episode where the Captain feels his past was nothing to be proud of ... and he get to see the effects of not taking risks and playing it safe would have had on his life. Really hard to watch episode, perhaps because it hits home to close. Like so many, life has beaten me into not drawing attention.
Star Trek fans a wonder value, and great choice of episodes (they did not mix in any bad ones along side the good ones).

Sigh... once again Paramount tries to pull off the ol' dreaded DVD double-dip ploy (read my SYLT guide on this annoying phenomenon at on the Trekkie crowd by releasing NextGen DVD sets based on a theme (like this "Best of Captain Picard" dealie) after having put them out in full-season sets over a year back (as of this writing)! Come on, now-- everybody knows that you're supposed to put the theme-based stuff out BEFORE the full-season sets if ya wanna squeeze the maximum amount of 'double-dip' buckage outta the fans! Take the distributors of the 'South Park' DVDs for example: they put out a couple single-disc volumes-- many of which had some kinda theme to 'em-- and THEN they put out the full-season sets. They did it this way because they knew they wouldn't make nearly as much of a killing the other way around! So remember: if you're gonna hose me and my fellow Trekkie DVDphiles, you may as well do it in a way that gets you as much of that filthy lucre as possible! Remember: the inferior product first, and THEN the 'new-and-improved' product! Just a little lesson in marketing for all of ya's out there!
As for the bonus 'From Here to Infinity' documentary show (narrated by ol' chrome-dome himself) that's to be included with this set: I've seen it, and found it a bit of a bore. Stewart narrates without any of the emotion or character he put into his most famous pop-culture icon. And it didn't help that the script he was reciting contained few cosmological factoids that I found even remotely interesting. Oh well-- there's always the Discovery and Learning Channels if I wanna see some truly interesting space docs...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good collection marred, somewhat, by a less-than-stellar documentary June 21 2009
By Reginald D. Garrard - Published on

It would be hard-pressed for anyone to pick just six episodes from a series that ran seven years and 176 installments, especially if those six episodes were centered around the lead character. Thus, "Star Trek: The Jean-Luc Picard Collection" has a tough job on its hands and whatever episodes the producers decided upon would be met with praise by those that agreed with the selection or condemnation by those that felt their favorite(s) had been omitted.

Whichever side one finds himself on is - in the words of the Borg - "futile." The selection here is well-balanced, featuring exemplary acting by all concerned and the chance to know the mind and the personality of one Jean-Luc Picard, well-played by Patrick Stewart.

Fan favorites "The Inner Light," "Sarek," and "Darmok" are included, along with the superbly acted/told "Family" and "The Drumhead."

Only does "Tapestry" fall a little short, as a stand alone installment or even one featuring recurring character "Q" (John de Lancie).

The extra, a rather lackluster documentary ("From Here to Infinity: The Ultimate Voyage")with Stewart as host could have been jettisoned in favor of another episode centered around the captain of the Enterprise NCC 1701-D.

I was pleasantly suprised to see a product such as this offered by Paramount. I love all of the Star Trek series, unfortunatley all the seasons hold the record as the most expensive series ever released onto DVD. This collection of Picard episodes was perfect for me to get seven great episodes and have them to watch over and over.

Despite what the name suggest, these episodes don't entirely focus on Picard. There are some great Worf, Wesley, and Data moments to be had as well!

I really, really, hope that Paramount decides to release more DVD sets like this to the public. I would love to see a Data, Quark, Doctor (VGR), or even Phlox DVDs released. Please hear my request Paramount!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Jean Luc Picard Collection Aug. 10 2006

Its really great, but I would have chosen Attached over Drumhead as one of the episodes along with Darmok and Inner Lightwhich are fantastic. I think it would have assured a 5 star rating to the collection. Nevertheless, it's well worth the buy.

This collection of episodes from Star Trek: TNG that focus on the 2nd best Captain in Starfleet history ( Kirk casts a long shadow not even Picard can escape) is nice a nice collection that showcases the best of Jean Luc Picard. Every Trek fan should have it in thier collection.
