* Maybe this one isn't exactly a ''highlight'' of season 7, but the CharacterDevelopment Troi got in this episode - i.e. becoming a bridge officer - was ''long'' overdue.

* In "Skin of Evil", the ''Enterprise'' crew encounters Armus, an alien being who murders Tasha Yar, and attacks Riker, then [[EvilGloating sadistically gloats about it]] to Counselor Troi, trapped in a downed shuttlecraft. Throughout the episode, the ''Enterprise'' crew tries to reason with Armus, but Picard decides to have one last word with him:

Throughout the episode, the ''Enterprise'' crew tries to reason with Armus, but Picard decides to have one last word with him:Picard, in his climactic speech, goes the other way: he looks a ruthless, all-powerful, disgusting blob of pure evil right in the face, and [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu tells him to]] ''[[BreakingSpeech go fuck himself.]]''



-->'''Picard''': But you will still be here! In this place! Forever! Alone! Immortal! [''Armus begins growling''] That's your real fear, never to die. Never again to be united with those who left you here. [''Armus is screaming now''] I'm not taking you anywhere.

* Picard breaks a time loop by straight-up ''killing his future self.'' Then flies the ''Enterprise'' directly into a huge energy vortex. And they survived. Picard earned all four pips that day.

** His opponent, Commander Maddox, defines sentience as "intelligence, self-awareness and consciousness." Data easily passes the first two with flying colors, of course, and in one of the most intense Picard moments ever, he then really sticks it to Maddox:
-->'''Picard:''' A single Data, and forgive me, Commander, is a curiosity. A wonder, even. But thousands of Datas. [[ArmorPiercingQuestion Isn't that becoming... a race??]] And won't we be judged by how we treat that race? Now tell me, Commander. What is Data?
-->'''Maddox (flustered):''' I... don't understand?
-->'''Picard:''' '''What is he?!'''
-->'''Maddox:''' A ''machine!''
-->'''Picard:''' Is he? Are you sure?!
-->'''Maddox:''' ''Yes!!!''
-->'''Picard:''' You see, he's met two of your three criteria for sentience, so what if he meets the third?! ''Consciousness!'' In even the ''smallest degree!'' What is he then? I don't know! Do you?! ''[to Riker]'' Do you?? ''[to the Judge]'' Do you? Do you?! Well that's the question you have to answer.
** One line in his speech stands out as one of the all-time great Picard lines in general:



-->''Flips Data's off switch''
-->'''Riker:''' Pinocchio is broken. Its strings have been cut.

to:

-->''Flips -->''[Flips Data's off switch''
-->'''Riker:'''
switch]''
-->'''Riker (after Data slumps over, lifeless):'''
Pinocchio is broken. Its strings have been cut.

* The saucer separation, showing off VisualEffectsOfAwesome never seen before in the history of Trek television, signifying many awesome moments yet to come

to:

* While they're treated as silly crony-capitalists from that point onwards, one has to give the Ferengi away team credit for putting up as good a fight as they did against Riker's team.
** Tasha's BigDamnHeroes moment when she appears to rescue Riker and the others.
** And when the Ferengi try to get fresh.
--> '''Tasha''': Paws off Ferengi!
--> '''Mordoc''': No female, Ferengi or human can order Mordoc around!
--> '''Tasha''': Just try it shorty!




to:

* The original "Picard Maneuver", using an illusion to trick the opposing ship into firing on the wrong ship is actually pretty awesome.

* The BigDamnHeroes moment by Admiral Riker and the refitted ''Enterprise'' in "All Good Things". Beverly ''Picard's'' medical ship, the ''Pasteur'', is under attack by two Klingon Birds of Prey, their shields are completely gone, and one more hit would spell doom for our heroes. Then the sensors pick up a Federation ship decloaking. The next thirty seconds are possibly some of the best CG in the entire series, and the coolest aversion of TwoDSpace ''ever.''

**Minor Awesome for Picard at the end, when he shows how impressed he is by Geordi's performance that he leaves him in command until Geordi returns the ship in the condition he received it (i.e., until it rejoined with the saucer section).

Added DiffLines:

* Geordi, while injured and stuck down in a pit, abandoned on the surface of a hostile planet, uses some nuggets of metal he finds, plus a phaser for heat and clay/mud for structure, to forge a pair of improvised climbing pitons.

* The scene where the Admiral tries to make people on the ''Enterprise'' obey his orders and outrank Picard and all of them stand against him. Worf's defiant BadassArmFold in particular is great.
