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

From the beginning of the series until the end of Season 4, the wall opposite the windows of the Enterprise-D's observation lounge featured an "alto-relievo"-style display of scale sculptures of six of the Earth vessels previously commissioned as the USS Enterprise. At the beginning of Season 5 and up until the end of the series, the Enterprises sculptures were replaced with a standard wall, with no explanation ever provided about their removal. The previous Enterprises display would not return again until Star Trek: First Contact
(1996), where the Enterprise-E's observation lounge has a glass-covered display with seven golden models of the previous Enterprises. The only exception is in the final episode during the past timeline, where we briefly see the Enterprise sculptures one more time. 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
