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
It is claimed that Data can't use contractions (Can't, Isn't, Don't, etc) yet there are several instances throughout the series where he does. One of the first such examples is heard in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Encounter at Farpoint
, where Data uses the word "Can't" while the Enterprise is being chased by Q's "ship". See more

The model of the Enterprise used in the opening credits is so detailed, a tiny figure can be seen walking past a window just before the vessel jumps to warp speed. See more
