This new "feature-length edit", like the one created for the Blu-ray release of "The Best of Both Worlds", is a little weak. Both halves are simply mushed together with no real transition...and though some time has passed between the events of Parts I and II, you wouldn't know it by the way the two scenes are suddenly cut together. I'll definitely watch it "the traditional way" in the future; like "BOBW", some things just can't be improved by further editing. I don't mind getting up to switch discs, honest.
The Blu-ray tech specs, on the other hand, are fantastic. As expected, the A/V presentation is top notch, with brilliant picture quality and two different audio mixes (7.1 and the original 2.0 stereo). Two terrific extras are also included, a 30-minute behind-the-scenes documentary with members of the cast and crew, as well as a full-length audio commentary with writer Ronald Moore and Michael & Denise Okuda. Overall, it's a decent buy for TNG collectors, but only if you have money left over after buying the fourth season. Like the "BOBW" Blu-ray, this is just an interesting curiosity.

The quality is no better than the original.
If you already have a Prime membership, stick with that. This offering is just a gimmick for Amazon to make an extra buck.
"Redemption" was not favorite two-part episode from 'The Next Generation,' however it's still a great story and offers a more fascinating look inside Klingon culture and politics. The extras on the set include interviews with Michael Dorn (Worf), Robert O'Reilly (Gowron), Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar/Sela), and Gwyneth Walsh (B'Etor). In the interests of consistency, since CBS Digital is handling the remaster of the upcoming release of Season Five, CBS-D handled the first part of "Redemption" which also appears on the final disc of Season Four. I compared the quality of "Redemption, Part I" on the Season Four set to many of the other episodes on the Season Four set and I cannot really discern a difference. Perhaps others can; my guess is if you're not working in the field you're not going to tell the difference. The quality of the remaster is stunning!
