Hot on the heels of the newly-released Blu-ray trailer for Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season 7, CBS Home Entertainment has also given us a first look at the upcoming single-disc Blu-ray release of “All Good Things…”, the TNG series finale.
“All Good Things…” is cinematic in scope, and the trailer does a wonderful job at whetting our appetite for the remastered version. The three-nacelled, alternate-future Enterprise looks breathtaking here — just check out that decloaking scene!
We’ll have a full analysis of the trailer shot-by-shot further down the road — including full, uncompressed 1080p stills and video — but here’s a look at one particularly noticeable image: the contrast between CBS Digital’s presentation of McKinley Station (seen in this trailer through a shuttlecraft window) and the station’s Season 4 appearance in “Family” (remastered by the external team at Modern Video) — a definite improvement!

While the finale is already presented in its original, ninety-two-minute uncut form on the Season 7 set, this single disc release will sport a crop of exclusive bonus content, including an audio commentary with writers Ronald D. Moore and Brannon Braga, a new behind-the-scenes documentary and almost seven minutes of deleted scenes.
Speaking of deleted scenes, this trailer provides an early glimpse at the first Star Trek appearance of actress Martha Hackett — better known as Voyager villain Seska — who guested in “All Good Things…” as Androna, a Terrellian pilot who leads a fleet of ships to the Devron system to experience the anti-time anomaly’s healing effects.
The only other image of Androna ever released was in a 1997 issue of the UK’s Star Trek Magazine as part of an article covering cut footage and other deleted scenes (though her costume was auctioned off in a 2007 That’s A Wrap auction).
We’re expecting “All Good Things…” to hit shelves on December 2 in the US along with the full Season 7 release, and we’ll be sure to update you about international releases as further information becomes available.
Be on the lookout for host of articles featuring commentary, analysis, HD screencaps, and video downloads from “All Good Things…” in the coming weeks, along with our ongoing TNG Season 7 preview coverage.
Finally, here’s a look at the “All Good Things…” Blu-ray packaging artwork, featuring John de Lancie’s Q, ready to pass judgement on humanity:
