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

In the series' many poker scenes, the characters (most notably Riker) typically do what's called string betting - putting forward chips to call a bet faced to them and then putting their raise out in a separate movement. String betting is uniformly illegal at real-life casinos unless the full raise amount is verbally declared first (the idea being that a player's intentions should be clear right away so as not to mislead other players).

Whereas the original series ended with "where no MAN has gone before," TNG uses "where no ONE has gone before." See more
