A prequel series, set 100 years before the original Star Trek series, which focuses on the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the formation of the Federation and the Earth-Romulan Wars. The series is set aboard the Earth ship Enterprise NX-01, captained by Jonathan Archer.
The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father's legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful, time-traveling Romulan creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protects a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony of Earth.
Edward James Olmos,
After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.
Past, present and future collide for Captain Picard as he finds himself bouncing around through three different time periods -- the Farpoint mission, the present, and the future in which many changes have affected the Enterprise-D crew. Meanwhile, the mischievous Q is back for his last time trying to help Picard figure out the meaning of a spatial anomaly... or is he only making things worse? You be the judge on this two-hour TV movie which concludes Star Trek: The Next Generation. Written by

Counselor Deanna Troi:
[exiting the holodeck]
That was an incredible program!
I am glad you approve. I have always found the Black Sea at night to be a most stimulating experience.
Counselor Deanna Troi:
Worf - we were walking barefoot on the beach, with balalaika music in the air, ocean breeze washing over us, stars in the sky, a full moon rising - and the most you can say is "stimulating"?
It was... *very* stimulating.

You can watch every episode within this series, and I don't think you'll find one that runs on all cylinders like this one. I'll admit, as many have already noted, that there are technical flaws in the storyline, but that doesn't take away from the best finale I've ever seen.
Character development has evolved so much within the series, it is fantastic that the finale revolves around Picard, his crew and foes unique to STNG. I, for one, enjoyed seeing how the writers projected these characters beyond anything they had presented in any of the previous episodes.
So, if you enjoy the series, and are looking for an all encapsulating episode that contains action, thought, character relationships and a little Trek history, this is definitely the episode for you. Without spoiling this story, I felt the final scene was the best way to send this show into it's TV conclusion.
