Just to point out, this is a review of the whole series as bought in these slimline editions, and not just Season Seven.

Yes, I'm a Trekker and ain't ashamed to admit it. I can still remember the days when I used to record ST:TNG episodes every week on BBC2 onto VHS tapes (remember those?) and just I've been meaning to get the entire series on DVD for some time. I bought the series in these slimline editions because it turned out to be cheaper than getting the actual complete box set. The only regret I have is for the poor postman who dumped SEVEN packages through my letterbox, all on one delivery!

I still can't decide which season I liked most, though I think I prefer the earlier seasons when writing was fresh and new. One of my all time favourite episodes which isn't in Season 7 but an earlier season, was 'The Offspring'. As Brent Spiner (Lt. Commander Data) himself said, that was ST:TNG at its finest and sci-fi writing at is best. Indeed.

I adore ST:TNG, and everything about it. I wanted to be sure I got the best DVD deal and these slimline editions really are. So a bit of advice: avoid the established boxsets; they are awkward to display and aren't always up to it. Instead, get the entire series in these slimline editions. They fit on the shelf nicely, and are easily accessible. Each DVD contains 4 episodes (with additional 'end-of-season' cast interviews and other interesting stuff), and there are 1 or 2 DVDs per set; and 4 sets per season. My only gripe about them (or DVDs in general) is that I object to being lectured on copyright theft before every title begins. Especially as I've just forked out over 100 for the lot! Also, once each episode ends, it goes back to the title screen; there's no 'Play all' menu option to play them conseqetively.

Format: DVD
With Star Trek traditionally being about 'boldly going where no-one has gone before', the final season rarely travels to 'strange new worlds', and instead the exploration turns inwards, searching the characters themselves. Comparing the final instalment, to the first season, the evolution of the show is obvious, the show started with a group of random people on a big ship, searching the galaxy, and ended with a group of friends, who have been through a lot together, exorcised some of their demons, and learnt a lot about themselves.
The happy endings, which were all the rage earlier in the show, are replaced by some darker episodes, ending with sometimes unresolved or only partially resolved conflicts.
Rather than tie-up the loose ends before the season finale, the show leaves us with even more questions; will Picard and Dr. Crusher ever get together, what happens to Wesley (though not everyone may want to know!!) and what happens to Ro Laren after she joins the Marquis... (admittedly, one or two of these questions are answered later in films and other series)
The final episode brings it all together, the last episode can sometimes be an anti-climax, but this one was a brilliant final legacy to the show, and gave some sense of completeness.
Recommended episodes:
Most have their merits, but watch out for: 'Descent', 'The Gambit', 'Parallels', 'The Pegasus', 'Lower Decks' and 'All Good Things...'
The DVD is well packed as usual, though after seven seasons worth of extras, some of the documentaries and interviews can get a little tedious. Still, it's nice to see that Paramount continued the effort to include loads of extras right to the end.

THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE 2006 SLIMLINE DVD EDITION. NOT OF THE BLU RAY OR ANY OF THE OTHERS. THAT HAS TO BE MENTIONED AS THE AMAZON SYSTEM WILL DOUBTLESS LUMP THEM ALL TOGETHER.

Seven discs. Inside four slim plastic cases. Inside one cardboard slipcase. Containing all twenty six [technically twenty six because the last story is a two parter edited into one long episode, but it's still counted as two] episodes of the last season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

All of which run for forty two minutes [approx.]. Save for the aforementioned double length final story.

Languages and subtitles are as follows:

Languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian.

Subtitles: English, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish.

The show was originally scheduled for a six year run. But it's success gave it the chance for more year. So would this be a successful send off?

Episodes are as follows:

Descent: part two. The conclusion to the Borg story that began at the end of year six. Never quite hitting the heights of Best of Both Worlds, it is nonetheless a good mix of action and drama.
Liaisons. Visiting alien ambassadors behave oddly. An odd little episode that feels like one they've had in reserve. It's a slight story but well made and entertaining.
Interface. A Geordi show in which an upgrade to his visor allows him to see his own mother. Aboard a lost starship. A capable episode that's pretty watchable.
Gambit part one. Picard goes undercover amongst mercenaries. Excellent action story.
Gambit part two. Conclusion to the story is just as good as part one.
Phantasms. Data has very strange visions.
