TNG cast reunion

The "Reunification" cast reunion

Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season Two is a Blu-ray Disc release, featuring the complete second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1080p high-definition. The set was released in North America on 4 December 2012, [1] and released in the United Kingdom on 10 December 2012. [2] The Season Two remastering work was completed by HTV Illuminate, supervised by Dan Curry, Denise Okuda, and Michael Okuda. [3]

The set features a sixty-minute roundtable interview with the entire Next Generation principal cast (save Denise Crosby), as well as a new interview with Diana Muldaur (Katherine Pulaski), the first post-TNG interview with the actress to appear on a home media release. [4]

The archived interview with Muldaur on the TNG Season 2 DVD was from September 1988.

While the Region B releases were issued in identical packaging as the Region A release (save for the language and rating imprints where applicable), a limited "SteelBook®" edition was a week later released in Germany as well as an exclusive. That edition came with a collectible Star Trek related insignia pin included as pictured on the lower right in the infobox.

Theatrical showing[]

On 29 November 2012, the week before the set was scheduled for release in the North America, movie theaters across the United States held special showings of "Q Who" and the extended edition of "The Measure of a Man", along with cut-down portions of the Blu-ray disc documentaries.

Restoration of cut footage[]

A significant amount of original footage was cut from "The Measure Of A Man" during editing, but was restored for the Blu-ray release. The "extended edition" features an 57-minute version of the episode, containing approximately thirteen minutes of restored scenes and visual effects. [5] [6] The set also contains deleted scenes from two other episodes ("The Icarus Factor" and "Up The Long Ladder"). [7]
