Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season 5, which includes all 26 episodes of the season, along with bonus features, is out for the first time on Blu-ray this week. As with previous season Blu-ray releases for the series, Paramount is also offering up an additional separately-sold Blu-ray spotlight from the season, this time for the two-part episode, “Unification.” Titled Star Trek: The Next Generation – Unification, this Blu-ray offering includes both parts of “Unification” edited together as one 90-minute episode, along with full-length audio commentary, an exclusive deleted scene, an exclusive documentary on the two-part episode, and TV promos housed in a cardboard slipcover that opens up to reveal the U.S.S. Enterprise and some of the characters from the episode.
“Unification” was a two-episode storyline that aired near the beginning of Season 5 of Star Trek: The Next Generation and it has the distinction of being the first TNG episode that aired after the 1991 death of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, who also created and served as executive producer for this spin-off. So, there was a lot of emotions behind this one at the time.
