The Blu-ray edition of Star Trek: The Next Generation season two contains an interesting easter egg that no Trek fan can do without: A blooper reel showing how seriously the actors of the long-running and successful television show regard their craft. Wait, did I say seriously? No, the actors on Star Trek: The Next Generation were bigger goofballs than their on-screen characters, with Patrick Stewart and Michael Dorn being the biggest offenders (ironic since they play the two most stony-faced characters).
Also interesting is Jonathan Frakes, who played Commander Riker, who took turns cursing the heavens over forgotten dialogue and comforting Patrick Stewart for his own languished lines.
But you don’t have to buy Star Trek: The Next Generation on Blu-ray to see the blooper reel. You can watch it below. Enjoy!
