The series attracted numerous actors, actresses, and other celebrities and public figures to play guest starring or cameo roles at their own request, since they were fans of Star Trek
(1966). Most notably of these was Whoopi Goldberg
's frequently recurring role as Guinan. However, the producers were unable to fulfill every request they received, the most notable being one by Robin Williams
. Due to Williams' schedule filming Hook
(1991), he had to forfeit his role in Star Trek: The Next Generation: A Matter of Time
(1991), and Matt Frewer
took his place. 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
