Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Complete Series is a DVD box-set of all 7 seasons of TNG, released in 2007 to coincide with the series' 20th Anniversary. It contains all the original discs from the previous TNG individual season box-set releases, plus a brand new bonus disc. It was released on Regions 1, 2 and 4.
This was the third time the entire series was packaged together in one DVD box-set. The first was the Region 2 exclusive Borg Mega Cube in 2003. The second was the Seasons 1-7 boxset, which was released on Region 1 and 2 in 2004.
The episodes on the discs, and their arrangement among them, are identical to the TNG season box-sets (including the Best Buy exclusive discs). There is also an additional disc for more special features.
Please refer to the following pages for the first 48 discs' episode arrangement.
- TNG Season 1 DVD
- TNG Season 2 DVD
- TNG Season 3 DVD
- TNG Season 4 DVD

- The Region 1, 2 and 4 releases feature identical packaging and contents.
- The 49 DVDs are spread across three sets of double-sided green disc trays stacked together, and joined by an adhesive strip down one edge of each stack. This differs from the other versions of TNG's complete series box-sets in that it does not group each season together separately. The three sets of DVD stacks are encased in a cardboard tray and plastic slip cover. A small folded information sheet is included with trivia and season information. A full episode breakdown is not included, but the episode titles are printed on the discs. Booklets from previous releases of the individual seasons are not included.
- Despite reassurances at the start of the project by CBS Consumer Products to the contrary that none of the available extra material would be left out, none of the special features especially produced for this DVD release on the extra disc are included on any of the Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray releases of the 2012-2014 remastering project. 
- The DVD Boxset has made an interaction with a Star Trek parody and pop culture production. In television sitcom The Big Bang Theory (Season 6 Episode 7: "The Habitation Configuration"), a set was seen given by the empathetically challenged principal character Sheldon Cooper to his girlfriend (who despises Star Trek) as a peace offering. Like Star Trek, CBS Television Studios is also the producer and owner the of The Big Bang Theory.
