Default Best Finale

Which Star Trek Series had the best finale? Obviously TOS didn't really have one, but I've included it anyway in case you really liked that episode.

My favorite would have to be DS9's. It made me cry, and it had some great drama.

I would have to agree with that. The DS9 finale with Jake looking out the window while they did the long draw back still gets to me.

I would say that the Voyager series ending was my second favorite. When they emerged from the exploding Borg sphere and Janeway gave an amazed and humble "we did it" it felt like they earned it. But the fact that they ended it there still bothers me. Another episode showing their arrival and celebration would have been a better closure as they all tearfully parted for the final time!

I agree. But I never really felt like it was the end of anything other than regular broadcasts. We knew that in their time things went on just as we saw them last until the movie came out. They never were headed for a conclusion. DS9 left us with a sense of conclusion since things would never be the same. Same with Voyager. But the final two parter of TNG was one hell of an adventure and rates right up there with Yesterday's Enterprise as one of my all time favorites for it's well crafted story and performances!

Default It's so hard!

Although I went for Deep Space Nine in the best series thread I have to admit TNG had a great finale. A fitting end to a great show that made Trek live again. What You Leave Behind comes in a close second but All Good Things... had it all.

The poker scene where Picard joins the rest of the staff...beautiful...perfect ending.

"The sky's the limit..."

It so is....that really summed Trek up for me that line.

TNG

One of the best series finales I've seen on television.

LOL, I was devastated by All Good Things. Seriously. I cried like a baby as I watched it, I was depressed for days. Just the thought of TNG being over was horrible.

Yeah, I know, I know ............. pathetic.
