TNG season 7 bluray details

CBS have released full details of what will be on the final set of TNG bluray releases. Season seven, and the stand-alone release of All Good Thing... are due out in December. Here's CBS's summary of the season seven box set:

Along with an unreleased gag reel and exclusive deleted scenes, the seventh season collection features some of the most acclaimed episodes of the series such as the conclusion to the two-part episode “Descent;” Worf’s (Michael Dorn) conflict with his human foster brother who violates the prime directive to save a doomed primitive race in “Homeward;” the two-part episode “Gambit;” Data meeting a woman who claims to be his mother in “Inheritance;” and the stunning, final confrontation between Picard and Q (John de Lancie) in the series finale “All Good Things…”.

Plus, the thrilling final season also features can’t-miss guest appearances from Kirsten Dunst, Terry O’Quinn, and former L.A. Laker James Worthy.
As well as the three-part documentary and round-table mentioned above, there is also Closed Set: A Tour of the Real Enterprise, a behind the scenes video shot by the Okudas on the TNG sets before they were altered for use in Generations.

Continue after the jump for all the details of the stand-alone All Good Thing... disc:

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION – ALL GOOD THINGS presents the epic feature-length series finale remastered into high-definition. The 1995 Hugo Award winner for “Best Dramatic Presentation,” the thrilling adventure was also hailed as a “picture-perfect” (USA Today) ending to the series.

A journey that takes fans to the end of the universe and beyond the boundaries of time itself, “All Good Things…” begins when Q tells Captain Picard that he is to be the cause of humanity’s ultimate annihilation. Thus begins an incredible journey through space and time that follows Picard’s first voyage on the Enterprise to 25 years into the future.

Fans can revisit the engrossing finale with the newly produced documentary “The Unknown Possibilities of Existence: Making ‘All Good Things…’” and never-before-released deleted scenes.
In addition to the featured described above, the All Good Things... release also feature a new audio commentary, by Ronald D. Moore and Brannon Braga.

You can find full disc-by-disc breakdowns of the extra features on both release, on TrekCore. Both of these are due out in December, and in Germany the season seven set is also available in steelbook packaging. In the UK meanwhile, December will also see the release of the complete TNG bluray box set, which repackages all the season box sets.
