Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Continuing to go where no one had gone before, TNG used its fifth-season episodes to pioneer new story concepts while acknowledging its past and revisiting old characters who remained popular with the show's fan base. This all-encompassing strategy resulted in some of the series' very best episodes, among them the unforgettable "Inner Light," in which Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart), rendered unconscious as a result of a mysterious injury, awakens on a faraway planet and experiences new emotions while living another man's life. Original Star Trek cast member Leonard Nimoy reprised his Spock characterization in "Unification," a tense drama set on the war-torn planet Romulus. Erstwhile TNG regular Denise Crosby guest-starred in "Redemption, Part II," playing the daughter of first-season character Tasha Yar. "The Game" had Wil Wheaton returning as cadet Wesley Crusher, who reboards the Enterprise and finds his old friends brainwashed -- the unfortunate side effect of an alien game. And Whoopi Goldberg made one of her increasingly infrequent guest appearances as Guinan in "I, Borg," a particularly well-written episode involving a Borg who begins to assert her individuality after leaving the Collective. Season Five's 26 episodes, nearly all of them first-rate, are collected on seven discs in this sturdy box set. Extra features include "Mission Overview," a brief summary of the season; "Departmental Briefing," a featurette covering production and special-effects techniques; "Memorable Missions," in which cast and crew members reminisce about their favorite shows of the season; and "A Tribute to Gene Roddenberry," which celebrates the accomplishments of the Star Trek creator who died during TNG's fifth season.
