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

The Ferengi were originally introduced with the intention of making them the main, recurring adversaries in the series (very much like the Klingons were in the original Star Trek
(1966)). However, audiences found the Ferengi too comical to take seriously as potential foes, and the race was gradually refined into the more blatantly comical characters later typified by Quark in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
(1993). The Borg eventually became infamous as ST:TNG's ultimate nemesis. See more
Throughout the series, the concept is that there is "no money" in the Federation. Yet the Federation obtains things from other outsiders meaning they have to resort to barter - a system older and less efficient than money.
More importantly, all resources are limited. If there is no money there would have to be limits on who could obtain what, a system far more oppressive than one using money. See more
