Re: TNG moments that made you want to cry(or did)

Another good moment is when Data "as her son" dresses down the woman who killed the Crystalline Entity in her son's honor.

Re: TNG moments that made you want to cry(or did)

One I'd forgotten about:

In "All Good Things," Crusher, Data and LaForge all doubt that Picard is really changing time periods, but Crusher says, "He's Jean-Luc Picard, and if he wants to go on one more mission, that's what we're going to do."

Oh, no, I just finished my TNG rewatch! Now what am I going to do?!

When Lal said to Data. "Thank you for my life."
And when she says she feels love for him & he can't share in it with her, she says she'll feel it for both of them. Easily the most touching moment on the show for me

A classic moment for ST:TNG. The finale was every bit the adventure it was intended to be and the heartfelt moments were just super.

I'm surprised "ethics" would have that effect since the audience knows Worf isn't dead.
There was no such assurance for the audience during the first run. Starting with killing Tasha in late/mid Season 1, writing Crusher out for Season 2, writing Pulaski out and bringing Crusher back for Season 3, and then leaving JLP's future up in the air between the end of 3 and 4 over Stewart's contract, there was no feeling of certainty in regards to anyone's fate. When it first aired, I thought they really had killed him off. So Beverly breaking the news to Alexander, and the way Gates delivered it, was very moving.

Re: TNG moments that made you want to cry(or did)

have to admit, I don't really recall that much about Ethics. Except they paralysed Worf and that visting doctor risked a medical prodcedure to make him walk again.

I dont know how I felt about that. I was sad because data is by far my favorite character, but then all that crap with B4 kind of sullied the whole thing, i left the cinema is a very strange mood.

Admiral Jarok. The fact that Picard didn't deliver the letter when he had a chance on Romulus makes me feel even worse.
How do you know he didn't?

I recently re-watched that episode, and Jarok's speech about seeing his daughter and realizing that he felt he had to change the world for her usually evokes a reaction out of me.

An assumption, my good man. Based on the fact that it wasn't shown to us. We can't just assume that he delivered it. Conjecture should be taken negatively more often than not...when it comes to TV, in my opinion.
