Set in the 24th century and decades after the adventures of the original crew of the starship Enterprise, this new series is the long-awaited successor to the original Star Trek (1966). Under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, the all new Enterprise NCC 1701-D travels out to distant planets to seek out new life and to boldly go where no one has gone before. Written by

During the first season, Gene Roddenberry
clashed virtually nonstop with the writing team and Paramount executives. Roddenberry and Paramount fought back and forth over the length of the show, and later, the length of the pilot. He was also known for rewriting scripts of other writers (and letting his lawyer do so as well, violating WGA rules), or praising them one day, then firing the writer the next. Unbeknownst to the rest of the creative team at the time, Roddenberry had suffered a series of ministrokes which greatly affected his mood and memory. He was also known for drinking heavily through the lunch hour and most of the afternoon against doctor's orders, which caused him broad mood swings and confusion. See more
Very often star streaks are seen backward. Ignoring tunneling (something that would have been hard to do in the late 80's) when moving faster than light speed stars would look streaked as depicted, but they would be blue as you approach the star and red after you pass. Sometimes this is depicted correctly but others it is seen the other way around. See more
