 The second season was badly mauled by a writer's strike, which is why so many of it's epsiodes feel like they're just filler. "The Child" was actually a revamped script from the unmade Star Trek II series, in which it was Ilia who becamne pregnant! I am always amazed that  after this slapped together kimish-kimosh of a season, following the awesomely PC first season, that the show manged to survive to reach the glory that is the third season. the third season was easily Next Gen's finest and arguably the best seaon of any Star Trek period.

Any news if they are bringing DS9 on bluray?

For me, ST-TNG was ok but never really followed them, I have all the seasons of DS9 and would love to see those in BR.

I really need to watch the entire series again. Damn you, Bob for tempting me.

Bob, Gates didn't leave the show because of a baby.  It was explained in the behind-the-scenes they showed at the theatrical screenings last week (that I assumed were also on this blu-ray) that she was in fact fired from TNG after the first season.  Patrick Stewart and I believe Rick Berman, talked about this in the special feature.

Gates was apparently very vocal backstage that she thought the writing was sexist and voiced her disapproval and her and Stewart demanded changes to certain scripts, which eventually lead to her firing.  

I was surprised to hear this as I had always thought/heard she got a bit of an ago during season one and thought she was too big for Trek and wanted to take on bigger, better roles, so she quit.

...and it was Patrick Stewart who convinced her to come back for the third season,as I understand it.

The greatest thing about this weeks releases is that we are that much closer to having Nolans Batman no longer in the news.

So tired of it always being in the news.... especially since it sucked
