Star Trek: The Next Generation—Season One
Blu-ray ($129.99)

Set phasers to stun: This six-disc collection marks the first time the fan-favorite TV series, which debuted in 1987 and ran until 1994, has been made available in hi-def, with all 25 original episodes carefully re-mastered from original film and audio. Set decades after Capt. Kirk and this original “Star Trek” crew crossed the cosmos, this “Generation” featured Patrick Stewart, Levar Burton, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, Wil Wheaton and a host of guest stars, and impressed Trekkie fans and critics alike with its serious, thought-provoking storylines, groundbreaking special effects and complex, multi-dimensional characters. Bonus features include more than 90 minutes of new documentaries, including cast and crew interviews and several featurettes.
