Editor's NoteNearly two decades after the cancellation of the original STAR TREK television series, creator Gene Roddenberry launched the first of what was to be four phenomenally successful spinoffs with STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. Set in the 24th century (nearly 100 years after the stewardship of Captain Kirk), the series introduced an all-new cast of intergalactic travellers exploring the farthest reaches out of outer space on a mission to chart new planets and alien civilizations. Ship commander Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) anchored the crew of the Starship Enterprise-D with a sensitive reserve that marked a distinct contrast to his trigger-happy predecessor, whose role was assumed by the Kirk-like second-in-command, William Riker (Jonathan Frakes). Rounding out the cast were the Spock-like android, Data (Brent Spiner); blind officer, Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton); Klingon officer, Worf (Michael Dorn); ship doctor, Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden); her teenage son, Wesley (Wil Wheaton); and psychic psychiatrist, Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis). Considered one of the best STAR TREK spinoffs for its intelligent writing and superb sci-fi special effects, THE NEXT GENERATION lives on in cult fandom with this complete collection of episodes from the series' fourth season.

Customer Reviews of Star Trek Next Generation Fourth Season Gift Set
This is the best season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Beginning with "The Best of Both Worlds 2" and an underrated episode "Family", the season just cranks out great episode after great episode. The season finale doesn't match the greatness of BOBW, but it is still one of the best.
WOW!! What great fun!!11/30/2002
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. This season is a lot of fun (once you get past "The Best of Both Worlds" anyway. I mean, come on, that story is pretty borring, after all). According to the special features, the producers of the show approached this season really wanting to focus on making character-driven shows rather than alien-driven ones. Wise move. That focus resulted in one of the best seasons ever. They cranked out some really good eposides including "Brothers," "Remember Me," "Future Imperfect," "Night Terrors," and "Idenity Crisis." This season also produced four of the best TNG stories ever. I'm talking about "Family," "Reunion," "Qpid," and "Redemption, part 1." Speaking of "Redemption"--woah! What a suprise ending! What a great idea for a cliffhanger! The stories are realy good. The special features are a treat. You guys got to try this one!
