From Amazon.co.uk

The seventh and final season of Star Trek: The Next Generation will always remain a curiosity in TV sci-fi history. Despite the end being definite, despite Deep Space Nine taking over, despite knowing there'd be a movie six months after the series' end, and despite Babylon 5 starting that year with its predetermined story arc, there is nothing here to suggest things were coming to a close. Wesley finally gets dispatched ("Journey's End"), but everyone was waiting for that anyway. Some continuity was attempted: there's a sequel to season 1's "The Battle" ("Bloodlines"), Alexander follows the Klingon soap saga through ("Firstborn"), the Maquis and the Cardassians are mentioned several times, and there are final installments for Lwaxana Troi, Barclay, Lore, Guinan, and Ro Laren. None of this brings any form of resolution, however.

The one-off story lines seem to throw out ideas that beg for development. "Force of Nature" suggests frequent high-warp travel is damaging the very fabric of space/time. "Parallels" has Worf experiencing multiple realities, including one in which the Borg won at Wolf 359. "Lower Decks" finally introduces some secondary crew from the more than a thousand supposedly supporting Picard and company. There are even hints at some romance at long last between Dr. Crusher and Picard as well as Worf and Troi. In the long run, even after terrific guest spots from Trek alumni Armin Shimerman and Robin Curtis, and from Paul Sorvino and Kirsten Dunst, there's one thing for which the final year is remembered: "All Good Things..." is a near-perfect denouement for the show. With terrific production values and FX, not to mention standout performances from all concerned, it was an amazing surprise to have Q suggest there'd been a story arc right from the get-go. If only this final script had been fully conceived earlier on, The Next Generation might not have been overshadowed by the glut of TV sci-fi that followed in its wake. --Paul Tonks

Product Description

The complete final season of the 'Star Trek' spin-off. In 'Descent: Part 2', the concluding part to the season six cliffhanger, Picard and the senior crew are stranded on a planet infested with the new Borg. The crew find help in the unlikely source of Hugh, who explains that they are the ones responsible for the changes to the Borg. 'Liaisons' finds Picard stranded on a planet with a beautiful woman. 'Interface' has Geordie encounter his mother when his VISOR is attached to an interface that allows him to have direct mental communication with a remote mechanical probe. 'Gambit' sees Riker captured by aliens who he thinks have killed Picard, but soon finds Picard masquerading as a mercernary. In 'Gambit: Part 2' Riker poses as a rogue Starfleet officer alongside Picard's mercenary. 'Phantasm' finds Data disturbed by bad dreams, and his search for the causes turning into a real-life nightmare for the rest of the crew. 'Dark Page' has Troi probe her mother's memory and uncover a family tragedy hidden in the past. 'Attached' sees Picard and Dr Crusher linked telepathically by an alien race, and suddenly realising that they have been hiding their true feelings for each other. In 'Force of Nature' a brother and sister team prove that the Warp Drive used in all ships is tearing the fabric of the Universe apart. In 'Inheritance' Data meets a woman who was once married to his creator and is therefore his mother. The rest of the crew urge Data to get to know her and, as he does, he begins to realise that she is hiding something from him. 'Parallels' finds Worf shifting into multiple parallel universes. 'The Pegasus' has the Enterprise joined by one of Riker's old commanding officers, Admiral Pressman, who urges Picard to embark on a hunt for a missing Star Fleet vessel before it falls into Romulan hands. 'Homeward' sees Worf clash with his half-brother when the latter wants to violate the Prime Directive. 'Sub Rosa' finds Doctor Crusher falling in love with a stranger she meets at her grandmother's funeral. 'Lower Decks' looks at the lives of some of the junior crew of the Enterprise, who soon find themselves on a top-secret mission. 'Thine Own Self' has Data stranded on a planet with no memory and a horde of angry locals blaming him for bringing the Plague to their town. 'Masks' sees the Enterprise transformed into an ancient society and Data taken over by a string of personalities. In 'Eye of the Beholder' Troi and Worf become romantically involved. In 'Genesis' Picard and Data return to the Enterprise to find that the crew have de-evolved into pre-historic creatures. 'Journey's End' finds Picard forced to relocate a group of American Indians from a planet that now falls in Cardassian space. 'Firstborn' has Alexander reluctant to take part in the Klingon ritual of The First Rite of Ascension. 'Bloodlines' sees Picard discover that he has a son. 'Emergence' finds the crew endangered when the Enterprise develops its own intelligence. 'Pre-Emptive Strike' has Ro ordered to infiltrate the rebel Maquis organisation, where she finds that she is sympathetic to many of their causes. Finally, in the two-part story 'All Good Things', Picard finds himself travelling backwards and forwards in time. Q returns to reveal that Mankind is still on trial by the Consortium, and that Picard's people face destruction from an unlikely source.

5.0 out of 5 stars All good things... 28 April 2008
By Tim.T
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best of all STTNG seasons 23 Mar 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Parallels" is a very disconcerting episode and you have to be very observant initially to see that things aren't quite as they seem - fractures in space-time cause Worf to experience parallel realities by jumping him from one to another very subtly at first, and then more pronouncedly. "Sub Rosa" is more of a modern ghost story, but with the Star Trek treatment - it is so well engineered an episode, that it haunts you well afterwards. Dr Beverly Krusher falls for a spirit form that behaves more like a succubus. "Thine Own Self" seems, from its description, to be another attempt at setting another episode back in Western (cowboys and injuns!) times, but it completely transcends that, and is one of the best episodes in this season. Data cannot remember anything when he awakens to find himself in a frontiers town, carrying radioactive material. He cannot even remember that radioactivity is harmful to humans, and he causes many in the town to become sick. Brent Spiner's acting ability is unquestionable in this episode - I've never seen him play Data better. Many other great episodes here, and I would say that this is slightly superior to Season 6, but only marginally.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong end to the evolution 2 Jun 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome final series 3 May 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a brilliant final season to a fantastic show. Definately worth buying if you need to complete the set or just want a stand alone box set. This was the first one I bought and it inspired me to get the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine swansong season 12 Dec 2011
By LXIX TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
1993/1994's Series 7 of Star Trek TNG was the swansong for this hugely successful TV series. Each episode is around 42 minutes long (except the final episode which is double the usual length) and the standard is high once again; however some episodes are rather derivative of earlier tales from previous seasons. Perhaps everything has a shelf life and all good things must come to an end as they eventually run out of steam. Series 7 has a notable family theme in many episodes: Worf's brother and son, Geordi's mother, Troi's mother, Crusher's grandmother, Data's step-mother and even Picard's offspring. A few well known faces also return, including Tasha Yar, Wesley Crusher, Ro Laren, The Traveller, Q and Lor.

Extra features on the 7th dvd include Mission Overview (14 mins), A Captain's Tribute (16 mins), Production (15 mins), Starfleet Moments and Memories (30 minutes), The Making of 'All Good Things...' (17 mins), Special Profiles (15 mins), Dressing the Future (10 mins) and Deep Space Nine Preview (5 mins).

The following is a synopsis of each individual episode, ranked by how I personally rated them (from best to worst):

*Episode 25: All Good Things ... (This is a double length feature. Picard is caught between 3 time zones: the past - at the point 7 years previous when he first took command of the Enterprise, the present, and 25 years in the future. All timelines lead to a spatial anomaly in the Devron system of the Neutral Zone.
