This was a behind the scenes special that aired around the time The Next Generation ended it's run all those years ago. The special takes a look at the series' seven year run and more. Features include interviews with the cast and crew, a look at the characters and the sets. It also takes a look at the two hour finale, 'All Good Things...' It was a pretty good one hour special. It's also interesting to watch. Catch a viewing of it, if possible.
It has always been said that Data was more or less very mechanical and
became more human over the next 7 years.
But if Data had been in Starfleet for 15 years before this, why didn't he show more growth before?
Of course there is also no reasonable answer to the question as to why a rest was the only barrier to promotion for Troi, since Data could easily pass any test (and while she had to reach the rank of Commander to be a "bridge officer" while Data was already a bridge officer as a Lt. Commander.
Further, it is also never explained why Data wasn't the Science Officer, or a Command officer, etc.
This 45 minutes long documentary film is very interesting. You get to know a lot of information who this film was produced. The actors are interviewed and tell of their experiences during shooting the film. The documentary film is hosted by Jonathan Frakes who also shows how the bridge of the Enterprise looks in reality. You can see that there is nor real screen where usually space can be seen. Not only the actors are interviewed, there are also interviews with Gene Roddenberry, Michael Piller and Rick Berman. So there will be no Star Trek fan who will be bored during the 45 minutes long documentary film. Very worth watching!

This documentary looks back at the seven wonderful years of Star Trek:
The Next Generation, showing snippets of episodes of the very best of
the series. We also see, through Jonathan Frakes (aka, Riker) as host,
what made the show very special, showing various cast and crew members
that made the series what it was.
It's especially nice to see the various sets that we have come to love, from the POV of the crew. That means we get to see the cameras and equipment behind the scenes. This includes what the stars in space we see out the Enterprise windows, where exactly the ceiling of the Enterprise transporter room came from, among many other trivia tidbits!
We also get explanations about "technobabble" where certain areas of a script is left blank so that certain crew that are tech-savvy can input the appropriate scientific terms.
We also finally get to see exactly where the bathroom is!
Trivia note: we also get to see a preview of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Generations, as well as a mention of Star Trek: Voyager.
