Strap in for some new-old voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Another 22 episodes will be in your orbit when the second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation reenters the stratosphere on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday. And, hey, it's only been 22 years since the season's finale and 15 years since it was released on VHS! That's like nothing in light years, right?



Someone should go ask Data (Brent Spiner). Let's just call this set his showpiece. The most exciting entry (of many) in this set's special features is an extended version of the episode "The Measure of Man," in which Data must prove to a Starfleet court (with the help of Patrick Stewart's loyal, fatherly Captain Picard as his "lawyer") that he's a sentient being in order to prevent some corporate-paid mad-as-heck scientist from cracking open his head in order to study his positronic brain. This isn't just a longer episode - some scenes are shot entirely differently than in the broadcast version. Some you've never seen before. (You purists also get the original version and a hybrid copy with more extra material.)



Also included: One of LaVar Burton's famous PBS Reading Rainbow spots, a reunion of the cast regulars (Stewart, Burton, Spiner, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, Michael Dorn, Gates McFadden and Wil Wheaton), a two-part making of documentary, and a new gag reel. It's made from recently recovered 35mm prints that reveal that Dorn (who played heavy browed, to say the least, Lieutenant Rorf) was the king of corpsing. Check out this exclusive preview
