Gosh how I wish they'd managed to do a Season 8, and extended the life of the Enterprise-D timeline-wise. Her destruction in Generations I did not handle well at all, and in fact drove me away from Trek for several, several years.

yeah I was watching TNG a while back and it was kinda getting on my goat how folks are always going on about completing the original series five year mission, but the TNG films never really distinguished themselves as TNG films. :(

:thumbsup:

I wonder what new plot lines they have in store. ;)

Loads of cool exploration, mysterious stuff...with the secrets of time and space being unraveled and tied up into knots. Along with corresponding to some of DS9's Dominion War. :)

Now hold your nimbus III horses, wouldn't season 8 have the exact same begining as season 1-7? also, should we start some kind of season 8 image challenge?

Well they did change the opening sequence between seasons 2 and 3...I just thought it might be cool to do some images based on a possible updated sequence. :)

But what kind of episode would have followed "all good things"?

Something fun and light-hearted, probably keeping Worf's promotion, but losing the rubbish where Picard loses his family and Data plugs in his emotion chip.

Yeah, I was never happy with the treatment of the Family Picard in "Generations". Though the emotion chip, even though it went in the face of the show.. I was kind of okay with.

I didn't mind the emotion chip, just that with subsequent films it wasn't explored but just used as a gimmick and in a lot of cases didn't affect Data's persona at all. :(

Actually the reason why the Emotion chip didn't have any plotline appearences after First contact is because by 2374 Data was finally able to safely remove the chip, so to quote a scene from Insurrection.

Precisely, they gave this character practically the one thing he'd sought-after through the whole 7 years of the series and they never used it to really further the character. I kinda feels cheated. :(
