Trivia

When the show's cast was first announced, some print media reports described Patrick Stewart as an unknown British Shakespearian actor. Brent Spiner made up a poster for the door of Stewart's dressing room reading "Beware: Unknown British Shakespearian actor!" See more »

Goofs

In eight appearances as Q, John de Lancie repeatedly used -- and never correctly pronounced -- the French expression "mon capitaine" when addressing Picard. See more »

Crazy Credits

As with the original "Star Trek" (1966) series, each episode begins with the captain reciting the famous opening monologue, "Space, the final frontier...." In recognition of changes in language conventions and style, the conclusion of the monologue has been altered. Whereas the original series ended with "where no MAN has gone before," TNG uses "where no ONE has gone before." See more »

SIMILAR TO THE ORIGINAL SERIES BUT FRESH IN IT'S OWN WAY
2 May 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Star Trek:The Next Generation was a brilliant series. In a way it was similar to the original but it was also fresh as well.

Firstly, there were similarity's. Data was similar to Spock and Riker could be considered similar to Captain Kirk. But the similarity's ended there. Everything else was fresh and original.

Picard was fresh-he was very diplomatic and understanding and a good negotiator. He was a good captain but preferred to stay on the ship and send Away Team's down to dangerous planets.

Worf was a Klingon which made for interesting stories. Worf may have been a StarFleet officer but he never forgot his Klingon heritage.

Data was similar to Spock but Data wanted to be human and he provided several laughs throughout the entire series.

Dr. Crusher was the ships doctor and I don't think anyone could say she was similar to Bones from the original series.

The stories were great throughout the series. It would be hard to rate individual episodes but the pilot episode and the last two-parter episodes were just awesome.

The Next Generation was truly an awesome series which did well considering it had a tough act to follow in Star Trek The Original Series.
