The one-off story lines seem to throw out ideas that beg for development. "Force of Nature" suggests frequent high-warp travel is damaging the very fabric of space/time. "Parallels" has Worf experiencing multiple realities, including one in which the Borg won at Wolf 359. "Lower Decks" finally introduces some secondary crew from the more than a thousand supposedly supporting Picard and company. There are even hints at some romance at long last between Dr. Crusher and Picard as well as Worf and Troi. In the long run, even after terrific guest spots from Trek alumni Armin Shimerman and Robin Curtis, and from Paul Sorvino and Kirsten Dunst, there's one thing for which the final year is remembered: "All Good Things..." is a near-perfect denouement for the show. With terrific production values and FX, not to mention standout performances from all concerned, it was an amazing surprise to have Q suggest there'd been a story arc right from the get-go. If only this final script had been fully conceived earlier on, The Next Generation might not have been overshadowed by the glut of TV sci-fi that followed in its wake. --Paul Tonks

The seventh season of TNG was a mixed bag; the show's budget had been reduced and many on the writing staff moved over to the new hot property "DS9" (in fact The Storyteller episode of DS9 was originally written for TNG). Nevertheless, there were a number of stand out episodes during the seventh season. If you factor in increased salaries for all of the staff, "ST:TNG" had to create more from less luckily the producers were very resourceful.
The restoration for "Star Trek: The Next Generation" ran into a couple of stumbling blocks early on (Season two done by an outside company,for example had some visual effects mistakes and the new visuals weren't as strong as what came before and after, and the restoration wasn't quite as meticulously handled compared to what was done in house). It wasn't awful by any means just not quite up to the quality we saw with seasons one and three (and to be fair they were working on a very tight time frame to prep it for release).
The seventh season comes with a stellar transfer. The audio remixed and presented in lossless audio.
We get some terrific special features:
Commentary tracks for by Brannon Braga "Parallels", "Lower Decks"by René Echevarria and Mike & Denise Okuda (new), "Preemptive Strike" by René Echevarria, Naren Shankar, and Mike & Denise Okuda (new).

|Up 20 dollars in one day. Whats the Deal?||
Supply and demand. I've noticed the fluctuation increase since before Thanksgiving. It's Christmas so sellers are getting what they can for it. Before T-day, most of the series was about $27-35/season. Wait til mid Jan, it should go back down by then.
