Did You Know?


There are some similarities to Q's last appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Tapestry (1993) in so far as Picard is sent into the past and back to the present. The circumstances as well as the conclusion, however, are rather different. See more »

Counselor Deanna Troi: [exiting the holodeck] That was an incredible program!
Lieutenant Worf: 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"?
Lieutenant Worf: It was... *very* stimulating.

This episode has it all
13 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
