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

The temporal anomaly was read as being an intersection of tachyon beams from the 3 different time line Enterprises. In the future time line, it was the USS Pasteur that initiated the tachyon beam, not the Enterprise. This is often considered a plot hole, but technically, Data is the one who found the discovery in the present time. His exact words were "The two other pulses have the exact same amplitude modulation as our own pulse. It is as if all three originated from the Enterprise." It is logical to presume Data, having been the one in all three time periods to help make the pulse, made the beams the same and in this present time made the assumption all three were from the Enterprise.

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.

There is only two logical places to comment on TNG series and this is one of them. I've been watching the DVD Year sets of TNG and its great to see the show again, without commercials! I remember when I watched this last episode. Seeing it again recently, I thought then and now that it was one show that could've gone on much longer. Except for some of the Enterprise episodes, Star Trek hasn't been as good since, and its really too bad that this crew will not likely make another movie after the underrated Nemesis.
TNG had some really good performances, both by the regular cast and guests. Some actors worked for scale wages just to be a little part of the Star Trek experience. Although all of the cast were great, the standouts have to be Patrick Stewart and Brent Spiner. It is amazing that neither one garnered awards or even nominations for their work on this show. Their acting elevated the some of the scripts to another level.
True fans won't be able to resist having this show at their fingertips and this last show "All Good Things..." is reason enough to get Season 7. I'm on Season 4 and enjoying all the episodes again on my way to it...
