For Star Trek: The Next Generation fans, Christmas is coming a bit early this year. After the stunning HD treatment the show’s first season received on Blu-ray earlier this year (check out our review here), Paramount Home Entertainment have wasted no time remastering the next season in gorgeous HD just in time for the holidays.
Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Complete Second Season is released on Blu-ray in the UK on 10th December 2012 and to celebrate, we have a copy of the set to give away to one lucky reader!
The journey to new frontiers continues in spectacular high definition as the legendary series STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION™ – THE SECOND SEASON arrives on Blu-ray Disc 10 December from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.
Adding to the exclusivity and collectability of the Blu-ray release is an HD, “Extended Cut” of “The Measure of a Man,” which includes deleted scenes and different angles from the broadcast version. The original version of the episode is included, as well as a “Hybrid Extended Cut,” combining the high-definition on-air version of “The Measure of a Man” with video of the extra material taken from an early VHS rough-cut of the episode that was in the writer’s (Melinda Snodgrass) archives.
The spectacular collection boasts a must-see reunion of the cast, who were brought together earlier this year in Calgary in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the series. Produced exclusively for the series’ Blu-ray, this never-before-seen reunion roundtable chat features all of the best known cast regulars, joining together for the first time in years to tape a discussion about the legacy of the series, including Patrick Stewart (Captain Jean-Luc Picard), Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T. Riker, LeVar Burton (Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge), Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi), Brent Spiner (Lt. Commander Data), Michael Dorn (Lieutenant Worf), Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher) and Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher).
STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION – THE SECOND SEASON also includes over 120 minutes of brand-new special features, including a two-part, in-depth documentary on the making of Season 2 entitled “Making It So: Continuing Star Trek: The Next Generation” – Strange New Worlds (Part 1), and New Life and New Civilizations (Part 2), and a gag reel that was created from newly recovered 35mm film elements and transferred for the very first time to high-definition.
The 5-disc collection features all 22 episodes of the second season of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, including the beginning of Whoopi Goldberg’s notable recurring role, and the introductions of Diana Muldaur as the new ship’s doctor and the deadly alien villains The Borg.
