Set in the twenty-fourth century and seven to eight decades after the adventures of the original crew of the starship Enterprise, this new series is the long-awaited successor to Star Trek: The Original Series (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.

Did You Know?
In the original series, most planet sets were re-configured in nearly every episode, bar the obvious generic planet surface studio set. However, on binge watching episodes in order of this show, it becomes apparent that Paramount Pictures spent big money on building large standing set structures that would be re-used for several episodes back to back, even with minor to major set re-dressing. In particular, the one set that seemed to last the bulk of the seasons, was a huge cave interior set, which seemed to be the stock generic studio interior set cave and rock face location. Recognizable for a series of steps from a door sized entrance, larger steps, during the crystaline entity terra-forming episode, Picard's archaeology adventure, Picard and Wesley's water scene, an episode with Tasha Yar's daughter, Ambassador Spock's scenes, amongst many others.

Captain's personal log... supplemental. I have just witnessed the total destruction of the USS Enterprise with a loss of all hands - save one... me.
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
The first and last episodes were originally broadcast as two-hour TV-movies, and were later re-edited into two one-hour episodes each. Both edits involved removing some scenes from each episode. See more
