The reveal of a familiar-looking character midway through the two-parter indicates that the Klingons may not be alone in the upcoming conflict.
Overall, “Redemption” is a strong story that looks better than ever.
The second half of the show is slightly less strong than the first, but altogether, the two-parter is a strong sampling of “TNG.”
Bonus features include audio commentaries from writer-producer Ronald D. Moore and visual effects artists Mike and Denise Okuda.
A documentary called “Survive and Succeed: An Empire at War” explores the story behind the Klingons in “Star Trek,” and features interviews with Moore, Dorn (Worf), O'Reilly (Gowron) and Gwynyth Walsh (B'Etor). The documentary explains, in great detail, how the “Next Generation” creative team expanded and explored the world and culture of the Klingons.
