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' second season.

This show really started to improve in season 2, although it wasn't quite there yet. A few classics (Q who, Measure of a Man) are mixed in with an awful series finale. The actors seem more comfortable here in their roles, having been given a year to retune their performances.
Season two is great!!7/30/2002
About ten million times better than season one!! There is not a bad episode anywhere in this season (although "Shades of Gray" is a little predictable). "The Child" starts everything off on a high note, and it just gets better from there. Some of the best are "Where Silence Has Lease," "A Matter of Honor," "The Royale," and "Time Squared." This season also contains one of the best TNG eposides ever: "The Measure of a Man." What a treat! This entire season really shows why TNG is the best television series ever made!
