‘Star Trek: The Next Generation' Season Four

The fourth season of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” has been visually upgraded for a Blu-ray release. This 26-episode HD release features visual effects rebuilt either from the original source materials or upgraded with new CGI.

In the series, Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) is the captain of the starship Enterprise, a Galaxy-class starship on which crew members and their families explore the universe. The show is set about 100 years after the original “Star Trek” series, the groundbreaking 1960s science fiction program.

In season four, which originally aired in 1990-91, the continuity of the series to date plays a greater role. The season begins with the conclusion of “Best of Both Worlds,” which saw Captain Picard assimilated by the Borg; his recovery is explored in the season's second episode, “Family.”

In “Brothers,” the android Data meets his creator, Dr. Noonien Soong, and has a confrontation with a flawed earlier android, Lore.

In “Reunion,” Worf's lover K'Ehleyr returns, and reveals a secret that changes Worf's life. The ongoing Klingon power struggle continues until the season finale, “Redemption, Part I.” (Both parts of “Redemption” have been released separately on Blu-ray.)
