Re: Season SIX OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

In broadcast order:

Realm of Fear - another solid Barclay episode
Schisms - One of the few Braga episodes that doesn't annoy me
Ship in a Bottle - Nice to see Moriarty back, plus double the Barclay this season
Tapestry - Oh good, a good Q episode this season after the boring True Q. Nice idea to flesh out Picard's character and the callback to his injury.
Starship Mine - Die Hard on the Enterprise, f$&k yeah! Though it makes NO sense for Picard to have a saddle without a specific horse.

Timescape I feel is overrated. Too many Braga-isms in it.

Chain of Command to me is basically one excellent episode padded into two above average ones.

What are your top 5 episodes of the 6th season?
"Time's Arrow II"
"A Fistful of Datas"
"Face of the Enemy"
"Starship Mine"

There are elements of "Chain of Command" that I like, but overall the episodes feel bloated.

"Relics" - Great return of Scotty combined with an interesting sci-fil plot involving the Dyson Sphere

"The Quality of Life" - A classic Trek question done well, with some additional tech jeopardy that was rare this late in TNG's run.

"Starship Mine" - A cracking action story done in "bottle show" style.

"Timescape" - Probably my favorite of the season overall, a very unique spin on time travel. Fun scene to start, plus nice to see the runabout in TNG.

"Descent, Part I" - A bit slow at times, but good to see the Borg return and in a unique way. Interesting cliffhanger ending too...

Honorable mention go to two episodes I think are underrated - "Man of the People" & "Aquiel"

Yup, now we get to feel that three-week delay. Not as bad as our UK friends though.

My memory's a little rusty, since I've been avoiding watching this season for a while, but I'm going to give it a go.

1. Chain of Command I & II
An epic two parter that worked on multiple levels. One of Patrick's Stewart's finest performances. And we also have two great guest stars in this one—Ronny Cox's "Jellico" and David Warner's truly creepy "Gul Madred." Trek at its best. Will buy the movie version too if I can get it at a decent price.

2. Frame of Mind
Wow. Like Star Trek crossed with Philip K. Dick. It's that good. This is the finest performance by Jonathan Frakes, imho, in the whole show. He's good in other episodes, but after seeing this I wished they'd stretched him more often. "You BET I'm agitated!"

3. Timescape
Picard drawing a happy face in a nearly frozen warp-core explosion. And then he laughs madly. Enough said. Great episode.

4. A Fistful of Datas
Star Trek's second homage to a classic Western (TOS had Spectre of the Gun), nicely directed by Patrick Stewart. Classic Data and Worf episode.

5. Relics.
A fond farewell to Commander Scott....
1. The Chase-A no-brainer really. Fantastic in every respect. Seminal even.

2. Tapestry-More than I thought we'd ever see about Picard's backstory. Nicely executed.

3. Birthright PtI- One of the most ethereal episodes, with a great discovery for Data.

4. Relics- One of the better reintroductions of a Trek actor from another series. Plus..Dyson sphere. It has to be good.

5. Schisms- One of the few really suspenseful STNG stories.

Lots of good ones though. Timescape is right up there. Frame of Mind. Chain of Command. Even Time's Arrow is one of the better second parts of STNG two-parters.

My top five list (in no particular order):
Chain of command
Relics
Chase
Timescape
Descent

Honorable mentions:
Suspicions
Birthright part 1

ahh so hard to select just 5. I think S6 is really a good season.

Deep Space Nine looks absolutely beautiful in HD. I think the long wait in between seasons has helped me gain a deeper appreciation for this project because my anticipation just went back up to season 1 levels. Can't wait until I get this and Chain of Command.

The wait has definitely made me anxious to revisit this season in HD. That screencap comparison with Scotty on the original Enterprise is another great example of how vibrant the show can look when taken out of the realm of SD video.

Any chance there's a trailer for the seventh season on the set or will we wait later like for S6's?
