TNG had some great subplots to be sure. But I still would've preferred to have an over all direction to the series beyond we're flying around space seeing what we find. That wouldn't have undermined the subplots at all.
My favorite was the Cmdr. Remmick arc.
Too bad that never went anywhere until the DS9 authors remembered that twenty years later.
Huh? By twenty years later (2008), both TNG and DS9 had been over for a decade.
