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.
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!
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.Read more ›
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!!!
My favorite episodes:
Encounter at Farpoint, The Naked Now, Where No One Has Gone Before, The Battle, Hide and Q, The Big Goodbye, Datalore, 11001001, Coming of Age, Arsenal of Freedom, Skin of Evil, Conspiracy, and The Neutral Zone.

Outer box and discs are all in good shape. Minimal scratches on the discs. We haven't played the discs to confirm it's all working, but I don't expect to have problem. Read morePublished on Jan. 4 2014 by Nancy
