Storyline

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 Ian Murray Hamilton <ac743@ccn.cs.dal.ca>

Trivia

Picard, Worf and Data are the only crew members who participate in all three time periods (although Riker briefly appears on screen during 2364). See more »

Goofs

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.

Quotes

[first lines]
Counselor Deanna Troi: [exiting the holodeck] That was an incredible program!
Lieutenant Worf: 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"?
Lieutenant Worf: It was... *very* stimulating.

Alternate Versions

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 »

This episode has it all
13 February 2006 | by gong-rSee all my reviews

You can watch every episode within this series, and I don't think you'll find one that runs on all cylinders like this one. I'll admit, as many have already noted, that there are technical flaws in the storyline, but that doesn't take away from the best finale I've ever seen.

Character development has evolved so much within the series, it is fantastic that the finale revolves around Picard, his crew and foes unique to STNG. I, for one, enjoyed seeing how the writers projected these characters beyond anything they had presented in any of the previous episodes.

So, if you enjoy the series, and are looking for an all encapsulating episode that contains action, thought, character relationships and a little Trek history, this is definitely the episode for you. Without spoiling this story, I felt the final scene was the best way to send this show into it's TV conclusion.
