3.0 out of 5 stars Going out on top, 22 Dec 2002

This review is from: Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 7 [DVD] [1990] (DVD)
The best thing everyone involved with ST:TNG did was end the series while it was still riding high, just like the other Paramount hit Cheers did the year before, and then moved straight onto the first of the ST:TNG movies Generations which they had already started to film while still completing the series.
Perhaps it is this, combined with the fact that the producers were heavily involved with their new baby Deep Space Nine, that the seventh season always disappointed me slightly in the same way that season two did as they had to compete with the writers strike of 1988. Those at ST:TNG called it "the season of lost souls" and that is a pretty adequate description. There are some absolutely wonderful episodes such as 'Attatched' where Picard and Crusher are forced to confront their feelings towards each other, the mid season two-parter 'Gambit' which is space pirates at its best and my favourite two-parter, 'Parallels' sees Worf trapped in alternative universes which sees him as Riker's first officer and Troi's husband and 'The Pegasus' which has Riker drawn unwilling into a conspiracy of silence about the fate of his first ship he was posted to. However there were some rather woeful episodes, of which 'Genesis' stands out like a sore thumb involving the crew de-evolving. Wonderful make-up but that's the only nice thing I can say about it. And Michelle Forbes guest appearance as Ensign Ro in 'Pre-emptive Strike' which sees her join the Maquis did not live up to the hype about Ro's return.
And of course, I mustn't forget 'All Good Things...'. Q makes an appearance in the final episode, just as he did in the first, to tell Picard that the Q Continum have made their judgement and have decided to wipe out all humanity, to make it seem that humans simply never existed and it falls to Picard to save the human race. A good episode, not a great episode, I don't think anything will ever measure up to the greatest series final episode, MASH's 'Goodbye, Farewell and Amen' but it tidies things up nicely to give the crew a smooth transition into 'Generations'. Plus there are very good guest appearances by Denise Cosby as Tasha Yar and Colm Meaney as Chief O'Brien, back when he was still on the bridge of the Enterprise.
So, while I must confess that(so far!)that my favourite final season of all Star Trek series has been season seven of DS9 right down to their final episode, overall they did a more than satisfactory job of completing a wonderful series, in fact I give 3.5 stars.
