The sixth season collection includes classic episodes such as Brent Spiner’s dual performance as Data and his father Dr. Noonien Soong in “Birthright,” the critically acclaimed two-part episode “Chain of Command,” Riker (Jonathan Frakes) coping with a bizarre identity crisis that pits him quite literally against himself in “Second Chances,” and James Doohan reprising his Original Series role as Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott in “Relics.”

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION – CHAIN OF COMMAND BLU-RAY is a feature-length presentation of the two-part sixth season episode. As a possible Cardassian attack looms, Captain Picard, Dr. Crusher and Worf embark on a secret mission to find and destroy suspected biological weapons, leaving the Enterprise under the leadership of the cold and demanding Captain Edward Jellico (Ronny Cox). Soon after, Picard is captured by the Cardassians and is brutally tortured for information. The crew’s dismay quickly turns to anger as Jellico’s plans exclude a rescue mission. With his options running out, Picard must fight to save his sanity and ultimately his life.
Ranked by Entertainment Weekly as one of the best episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, “Chain of Command” is also lauded for its “eerily prescient” (Slate) depictions of torture. Along with exclusive audio commentary with Ronny Cox, Jonathan West and Mike and Denise Okuda, the Blu-ray also features the newly-produced documentary “The Privilege of Rank: Making ‘Chain of Command.’”
