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.Written by

Picard's captaincy of the Enterprise is approved by Admiral Nora Satie. Satie made an appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Drumhead (1991), where she and Picard were at odds with one another over her paranoid belief in a Starfleet conspiracy. See more »
Beverly thinks that because of the accumulation of acetylcholine in Picard's brain, he now has about two days worth of new memories. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter, which - aside from its functions in the activation of muscles - is rather associated with the short-term memory, which lasts no longer than several seconds to a minute.

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 »
A Good Way to Say Goodbye... to the TV show anyway
Wow, what great twists and turns through the storyline. Jumping from the first TNG episode to the future and of course Q is involved.
It was great to see how it can twist the time line into reverse and keep you guessing right along to the end, as in true Star Trek style. It finished neatly with the Captain joining into a card game, something he had never done in any other episode, and of course, the Enterprise D sails off into the 'sunset'.
In a way, you sort of wish that the final episode said goodbye to TNG as it appears Voyager has done. However, I do appricate the later films in their quality and they just pick up the life of the crew of the Enterprise.
May Star Trek live long and prosper.
