Every week in 2018, the plan is that my friend Rod is going to ask me some geeky question that will answer in a post. This week is Week #37, and this week, Rod’s question is very topical from a Geeky perspective:
What’s my suggestion for a new Star Trek project featuring Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard?
It’s taken me a while to get to it, but here at last is the summary of the seventh and final season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It’s a season that manages to leave a good taste in the mouth mostly because the finale, All Good Things, is so outstandingly enjoyable that it almost manages to wipe away the memory of all the sub-par episodes of the year. But then you’re like, “Oh yeah, Masks, and Sub Rosa, and that one with the train on the holodeck…. And so it goes. Continue reading Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season Seven Summary
Riker’s former commanding officer arrives on board the Enterprise, using his rank as an admiral to usurp Picard’s authority on a secret mission to recover their ship, the Pegasus, which has long been thought lost in an incident in which a young Riker protected his Captain from other mutinying officers.

Season Six of Next Generation is beginning to show a few signs of growing thin, but overall still makes for enjoyable viewing. The thin-ness is really the same as for Season Five – there are no big story-arcs winding up. Indeed, there aren’t really any big story-arcs winding down either. Those all finished a couple of years prior, and the new ones are really being saved for Deep Space Nine. We also see the roles of various regular fixtures on board the ship sort of peter out, such as Guinan, Alexander, Ro, and the O’Briens. Though some will show up one more time next year, basically their presence as regular parts of the Next Generation landscape end on a whimper this year.
What we do get is a bunch of stand-alone episodes, including some great of ones. Continue reading Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season Six Summary
