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 (1987).Written by

Data begins a long and tedious rant about the meanings of "burn the midnight oil..." at one point in the past. This is reminiscent of earlier seasons where Data would go on at length about something and have to be stopped. See more »
In the past timeline, after Counselor Troi talks with Captain Picard in his ready room about crew discomfort and her romance with Commander Riker, she exits to the bridge at the end of the scene. Just as the ready room door slides shut, the door to the battle bridge can be seen in the background. The striping on the battle bridge door matches the styling of the Enterprise-D bridge of the future timeline, not the past. See more »
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 are two versions available on video (UK). One on the series tapes with both parts appearing as separate episodes, the other as a re-edited feature length 'movie'. The latter has additional footage including an additional appearance by Q in the old Picard's bedroom just before he goes to 10 forward with new theories regarding the anomaly. This version makes more sense as you see where Picard gets his theory from. See more »
The best episode and better than most of the movies!
I've seen almost every episode of STNG and all of the STAR TREK movies. This series finale is the best two hours of STAR TREK, ever. The third, fourth, sixth, and eighth movies come close. Here, finally, is the crew bonding as a family in a great story that is well executed. "Star Trekking" at its finest. Bravo!
