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 (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.

The Q Continuum were originally going to be numerous identical individuals, all played by John de Lancie
. This portrayal is rather apparent in the series opener, "Encounter at Farpoint", with each change of costume usually resulting in a change in attitude and demeanor. However, by Q's next appearance, season one, episode ten, "Hide and Q", this particular idea seems to have been dropped, with Q acting as a single individual, and later episodes introduced other members of the Q Continuum played by very different-looking actors, a gimmick which continued in a few episodes of Star Trek: Voyager
(1995). 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
