Season 7 holds a special place for me because it was when I began watching TNG. I watched it first run and then started from the begining in syndication. In hindsight, I think S6 is definitely the peak. There are some real duds in S7. I don't hate Genesis as much as most do, but Masks, Thine Own Self, Sub Rosa, horrible. Sub Rosa is one of the worst eps of the series, if I were Gates McFadden I would have refused to film it.
