Re: Was TNG more Arc-Based Than We Thought?

UK genre magazine 'SFX' made the point once that TNG doesn't do story arcs per se, but what they do have is something which is more like the reset button not being pressed. It's got a fluid continuity where the events of an episode are self-contained, but are not simply forgotten. Often times characters or themes would be revisited in later episodes. It's more like 'character arc' television rather than 'story arc' television.
