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

A successful intent of the show's producers was the establishment and maintenance of an ensemble cast format by having a number of episodes focus around Geordi LaForge, Deanna Troi, or Wesley Crusher. This was among the efforts to improve upon the original Star Trek
(1966) which largely focused on Kirk, Spock and McCoy in every single episode at the expense of the show's supporting characters Scott, Uhura, Sulu, and Chekov. The ensemble format would also subsequently be implemented with success into Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
(1993), Star Trek: Voyager
(1995) and Star Trek: Enterprise
(2001). See more

) who performs the voice of the computer taking breaths between lines. Obviously a human actress would have to do this, but a computer with an electronically generated voice would not, as it wouldn't breathe. See more
The pilot episode "Encounter at Farpoint" has the end credits in a "scroll up" format. All subsequent episodes display the end credits in a "slideshow" format. See more
