Posted by David Lambert
Yesterday we reported on CBS/Paramount's announcement for a November 17th DVD release of Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Best Of, Volume 2. Now we've got new details about this $14.99 SRP release...namely, the list of episodes included on this disc! We also have an early look at the cover art, but please be aware that it could be subject to change. It looks very sharp as-is, though:
"Relics" - The U.S.S. Enterprise crew is surprised to encounter the U.S.S. Jenolen, which crashed 75 years ago, on the surface of a tremendous gravitational force known as a Dyson Sphere. However, they are even more surprised to discover a survivor hidden in the ship's transporter: the legendary Captain Montgomery Scott has survived for three quarters of a century by keeping himself suspended in molecular limbo. (Season 6)
"The Inner Light" - An unsophisticated alien probe assumes a relative position, holding steady with the U.S.S. Enterprise, and releases a nucleonic particle stream that penetrates the ship's shields. Focusing solely on Picard, the beam knocks him unconscious. When he wakes up, Picard finds himself in unfamiliar surroundings, being cared for by an attractive woman. The woman, Eline, tells him his name is "Kamin," and he is her husband of three years. She also tells him that he has been sick and must be experiencing a memory loss. Picard soon learns that he lives on the planet Kataan, where he works as a simple iron weaver. His confusion is compounded when he notices that Eline wears an exact replica of the alien probe as jewelry. (Season 5)
"Cause and Effect" - The Enterprise-D is charting the Typhon Expanse, a previously unexplored region of space, until a distortion field suddenly fluctuates, the main propulsion systems collapse, and the Enterprise is thrown into red alert on a collision course with an older starship. Kelsey Grammer guest-stars. (Season 5)
"Tapestry" - Gravely injured in a Lenarian attack, Picard slips into a white, seamless limbo while Beverly struggles to save his life. There, he encounters Q, who informs Picard that he is dead, and this is the afterlife...and that Q himself is God! Picard refuses to believe that he is dead, let alone that Q is the supreme being. But Q is determined to prove otherwise. He produces the artificial heart that failed Picard and caused his death, which triggers Picard's sense of regret. With Q's urging, he admits that, given the opportunity to live life over, he would do things differently. Picard's wish is Q's command... (Season 6)
