Tomorrow is the day. Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season Six and the acclaimed TNG two-parter, "Chain of Command" will be available tomorrow on Blu-ray via CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.
The Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season Six Blu-ray set includes all 26 episodes, with each having received the full HD treatment. Rendered in 1080p high-definition Blu-ray and digitally remastered 7.1 audio, every scene in each episode benefits from new visual depth and enhanced special effects. Among the most memorable episodes are "A Fistful of Datas," with Worf (Michael Dorn) in Western garb; "Relics," with La Forge (LeVar Burton) rescuing Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott (guest star James Doohan) from 75 years of transporter limbo; and "Chain of Command, Part I and II," in which Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) suffers at the hands of a Cardassian torturer (David Warner). Also included are "Face of the Enemy," "Tapestry" and the "Birthright" two-parter. And then there are the value added materials, such as documentaries, commentaries (with Jonathan West, Ronald D. Moore, Mike & Denise Okuda, and James L. Conway), deleted scenes, a gag reel and more.
Next, The Star Trek: The Next Generation - Chain Of Command Blu-ray transforms the landmark two-part episode into a seamlessly edited feature-length, high-definition presentation. A synposis for the newbies: tensions rise as a possible Cardassian attack looms, and Picard, Dr. Crusher and Worf are sent on a secret mission to find and destroy suspected biological weapons. The headstrong replacement captain, Edward Jellico (Ronny Cox), is cold and demanding – to the dismay of the remaining crew. However, when Picard is captured by the Cardassians and tortured for information by Gul Madred (David Warner), dismay turns to anger and resistance as Jellico’s plans preclude a rescue mission. Picard, his options running out, must fight to save his sanity and ultimately his life. The Chain of Command Blu-ray includes a documentary (The Privilege of Rank: Making "Chain of Command"), deleted scenes and audio commentary from Ronny Cox, Jonathan West and Mike & Denise Okuda.
