The Borg is back. And the badass collective is looking better — and by that we mean worse — than ever before! On Tuesday, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media will release the classic "Best of Both Worlds" two-parter from Star Trek: The Next Generation, in which Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) is abducted by the Borg, as a seamless, high-definition feature on Blu-ray Disc. Look for loads of terrific extras, including a newly produced featurette "Regeneration: Engaging the Borg," that explores the creation of the popular villain race via interviews with production staff, effects experts, writers and cast.

Also getting an Blu-ray Disc release Tuesday is Star Trek: The Next Generation — The Third Season, a six-disc collection including all 26 episodes from the show's landmark third season, plus "Inside the Writers Room," a reunion of Next Gen writers moderated by Trek superfan Seth MacFarlane. Panelists include Ronald Moore, Brannon Braga, Naren Shankar and Rene Echevarria. Among other highlights is a moving tribute to the late Next Gen exec producer-writer Michael Piller and an all-new multi-part documentary called "Resistance is Futile — Assimilating Star Trek: The Next Generation." Here's an exclusive clip from "Resistance" with Brent Spiner (Data) and Patrick Stewart discussing Spiner's unique acting style. Was it over-the-top or was it genius? The Captain will decide!
