Once Picard is captured, Riker finds himself in command and forced to make key decisions for the future of the Enterprise, and possibly the human race. He's also forced to work with Shelby, acting as first officer in this crisis circumstance.

These episodes look and sound outstanding. Fans that are planning on buying the individual seasons on Blu-ray might not see the need for this episode separately. But as considered as a stand-alone or a sampler for those new to Trek, “Best of Both Worlds” succeeds on every level.

The high-stakes action of this two-parter makes for a thrilling experience that's on par, or better, with the theatrical films. Extras on this disc include audio commentary and a featurette, “Regeneration: Engaging the Borg.”
