Originally, Data was going to be the Chief Science Officer on the Enterprise (like Spock was on the original Star Trek
(1966)) and wear a blue uniform. However, the color blue clashed with the android make-up and the idea was changed. Data was reassigned as the Chief Operations Officer and sported a gold uniform for all seven seasons (except for two episodes, which were; the episode Star Trek: The Next Generation: Future Imperfect
(1990) in which we see him on the bridge as the First officer in the possible future scenario, and the two-part episode "Chain of Command" in which he's promoted to first officer and wears a red tunic). See more

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
