sorry if this has been brought up before... i was finishing my blu ray watch thru of TNG last night with "all good things." and i saw something i had never noticed before. there is scene when picard is back in the farpoint mission time period, and he walks into the conference room to meet with the senior staff. the inboard wall has been restored to appear like it did in the earlier seasons, with the large golden foam casts of the various enterprise ships. picard's entrance is shot from the rear door, or the "less used" entrance to the room, meaning that he's walking alongside the ships. actors often exit a conference room scene from this door, but less frequently enter from it. and picard rarely if ever enters from this door. in the shot, patrick stewart does a very drawn out and measured approach to the enterprise B model. the shot lasts for like, literally eleven whole seconds. he almost cautiously approaches the ship, and comes to stare right at it. then he is interrupted by staff entering the room from the opposite, more commonly used door. the staging of this shot seems entirely deliberate in order to showcase the wall of ships and picard's pensive interest in the enterprise B. now the productions of generations and "all good things" overlapped. the cast said they wrapped the series on a friday or whatever, and then on monday started working on the movie. so the cast would have had the movie script in hand while shooting the series finale. although we as audience members did not learn of kirk's (cheated) fate aboard the enterprise B until we saw the film, his canonical "death" would have been known to all characters during the run of TNG—especially to picard—who was close to sarek and knew and worked with spock. so this scene in "all good things" is surely picard pausing to reflect on kirk's death aboard that ship. now my question is, who's idea do you think this was to insert this little easter egg into "all good things" ? my thinking is this is totally a patrick stewart move. it seems like an actor's decision. i can imagine stewart having a brief conversation with director winrich kolbe when they were setting up the conference room scene and, having read the generations script and prepared to shoot that film, he suggested this setup from this vantage to kolbe so that picard can have his little moment with the enterprise B. thoughts?
