Star Trek: The Next Generation -- Season Four
Star Trek: The Next Generation -- Redemption
The fourth season of TNG opens by resolving the killer Year 3 cliffhanger, which found Patrick Stewart's Picard being assimilated by the Borg, forcing his No. 2, Riker (Jonathan Frakes), to fire on his boss. That's the thrilling beginning to one of the series' best seasons, which featured some notable additions (longtime Trek scribe Brannon Braga joined the franchise) and departures (walking punchline Wesley Crusher left the bridge once and for all), as well as such memorable episodes as "Family" (a change-of-pace hour that explores the familial relationships of several key crew members), "The Wounded" and the Worf-centric season finale, "Redemption, Part 1" which marked the show's 100th episode. And if you can't wait for the Season 5 box set to see the conclusion to that particular arc, you can pick up the standalone Redemption DVD, also out today, which puts both parts on a single disc.
Extras: TNG's Season 4 set includes audio commentaries on two episodes ("Brothers" and "Reunion"), deleted scenes, a gag reel, a video Q&A with the show's art department and a new retrospective documentary about all the familial bonding that went on aboard the Enterprise. Redemption comes with its own commentary track anchored by the episodes' writer Ronald D. Moore, vintage promos and a featurette.
