STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION- ALL GOOD THINGS

Blu-ray review by David Blackwell

 

DETAILS:  90 minutes, audio commentary, episode promos, deleted scenes, making-of documentary

VIDEO:  1.33:1 1080p High Definition

AUDIO:  English 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, English Stereo Surround, German Stereo

Subtitles: English SDH, German

 

STUDIO: Paramount/ CBS

RELEASE DATE: 12-2-2014

The series finale of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION visited the past and future (a possible future) along with the present in a story that brought back Q and Tasha Yar.   Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) must find out what is causing him to time jump and the mystery of a temporal rupture that exists in more than one time period.

 

ALL GOOD THINGS is one of the most satisfying series finales of any STAR TREK series despite the fact that the writers of the finale were also writing the movie STAR TREK: GENERATIONS at the same time.  All other series finales seem to fail in some way as they don’t bring a good conclusion to what came before.   It is interesting to see future versions of the Enterprise D crew along with the way the show navigates three different time periods without being confusing.  Picard is the navigator for our journey with the TNG TV show for one last time.  John DeLancie is perfect as Q in this final love letter to THE NEXT GENERATION TV show.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

Audio commentary by Ronal D. Moore and Brannon Braga with moderator Robert Lay (who produced the special features for the TNG blu-rays)

 

THE UNKNOWN POSSIBILITIES OF EXISTENCE: MAKING “ALL GOOD THINGS…”-  a retrospective documentary on the making of the series finale with Brannon Braga admitting sometimes he and Ron would get confused on what script they were writing (the series finale or the movie)

 

Episodic promos for Part 1 and 2 of the series finale

 

Over seven minutes of deleted scenes (only included on this release and not on the season 7 blu-ray) including a subplot they cut out of the finale

 

FINAL ANALYSIS: The disc features the best of the STAR TREK TV series finales with many extras exclusive to this release- recommended for all NEXT GENERATION fans.
