Making It So: Continuing Star Trek – The Next Generation is an 84-minute documentary offering an in-depth exploration of Star Trek: The Next Generation's second season, including the effects of the 1988 writer's strike on the show, cast changes, and the challenges of creating groundbreaking visual effects on a television budget. For ease of access, the documentary – produced for inclusion on the 2012 TNG Season 2 Blu-ray release – is split into two roughly equal-length parts,

  • Part 1: "Strange New Worlds"
  • Part 2: "New Life and New Civilizations"

The documentary includes unique behind-the-scenes footage, outtakes, and interviews with the key creative personnel from the show, as well as the entire regular cast, including Diana Muldaur, who joined the cast during the series' second year.
