The huge flaw in "All Good Things"

You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.

Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)

ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.

If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

The huge flaw in "All Good Things"

Post by JM1776 » Sat Mar 24, 2018 4:30 pm

The convergence of Enterprise's inverse tachyon pulses in all three continuities initially form the anomaly that threatens humanity. It's composed of "anti-time".

But when the future Enterprise-D, having already done the deed, returned a few hours later to scan for the anomaly (as the "aged" Picard convinces them to do) it helped create, the crew should have found nothing. Since it was formed hours ago and grows stronger in the past, there would be nothing to detect when they returned, because in the present and the future, it's not there yet ... er, I mean anymore.

The entire plot collapses.

Whoops.

I agree that's a huge flaw in the story.

You would have thought someone on the writing staff would have caught that.

there is obviously a flaw, just like the mirror episodes drive me insane when their counterparts all amazingly in especially the ds9 episodes just happens to be stationed on the same station in the mirror universe.
Remember sisko did not want the position originally on ds9, so why is sisko around the station for example in the mirror universe and likewise other characters, but I try to over look that much like the all good things episodes and just take them for what they are.

I think I was vaguely aware of it when watching the first time through, but squelched my misgivings because it was TNG's finale, and I didn't want to be aware of such a fuck-up.

I just watched it again two days ago.

This time, I went, "Hey..."
