Most of the Seven stuff, although well-played and on average mediocrely-written, felt lukewarm and tedious to me, perhaps because it wasn't new territory:
Picard's scenes in 'Family' and 'First Contact' are much more powerful (and shorter) than all the Seven episodes ... and Hugh's story of becoming an invidual was much more to the point.
