Paramount provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post.
The opinions I share are my own.

Note: This set is a re-release of the previous Blu-rays (the discs are also identical). As such, I’m just going to break down what is included.


Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Best of Both Worlds (1990)

The Borg advances their plans to assimilate the human race by kidnapping Picard (PATRICK STEWART) and making him their spokesman. Riker (JONATHAN FRAKES) must make an agonizing choice between saving Picard or humanity when the Borg plan to use the abducted captain in their scheme to assimilate Earth.

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Chain of Command (1992)

Picard, Worf (MICHAEL DORN) and Dr. Crusher (GATES MCFADDEN) are reassigned to a top-secret mission; a new commanding officer assumes control of the Enterprise. Picard’s captors use extreme methods to uncover Federation strategy; Jellico plans to launch a first strike against the Cardassians.

Star Trek: Generations (1994)

In the 23rd century, the Starship Enterprise is dispatched to the scene of a giant energy field about to engulf two ships. Capt. Kirk (WILLIAM SHATNER) averts calamity, but is exposed to the field and presumed dead. Years later, the Enterprise’s new commander, Capt. Picard, learns that one of the disaster’s survivors, Dr. Soran (MALCOLM MCDOWELL), plans to enter the field by destroying a neighboring star. Picard now must collaborate with an unlikely ally in order to stop him.

Star Trek: First Contact (1996)

The Enterprise and its crew follow a Borg ship through a time warp to prevent the Borg from taking over the Earth in a past era. Stuck in the past, Geordi La Forge (LEVAR BURTON) helps a pioneer of space travel (JAMES CROMWELL) in his efforts to create the first warp drive while Capt. Picard Cmdr. Data (BRENT SPINER) battle the Borg Queen (ALICE KRIGE) as she tries to take over the Enterprise.

Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)

A Federation mission to the planet Ba’ku takes a dangerous turn when a malfunctioning android, Data, takes a cultural task force hostage. When Capt. Picard and his crew investigate, they uncover the truth about the Federation mission: It was actually a systematic ploy by the Son’a to displace the peaceful inhabitants of Ba’ku. Now Picard and his crew must thwart the plot even while experiencing strange side effects from exposure to the planet’s surface.

Star Trek: Nemesis (2002)

Capt. Jean-Luc Picard diverts the starship Enterprise from its scheduled trip to Cmdr. Riker Counselor Troi’s (MARINA SIRTIS) wedding to negotiate a peace treaty with the Romulans. Picard is shocked when Shinzon (TOM HARDY), the new Praetor of the Romulans, admits to being a clone of him. When the crew members discover a break-in on their computer, they are forced into a life-or-death battle to stop Shinzon’s Warbird before it can destroy the Earth.

The Star Trek: Picard – Movie & TV Collection is not a release for fans of the franchise but those who have a low or at best moderate interest in the series but never purchased the original TNG movie collection. These are the same discs as previously released and even are very likely the same discs.
