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.

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.

Items in the holodeck cannot exist off the holodeck. However in the first episode Wesley falls in the river where Riker and Data met, and was still wet going down the halls of the Enterprise. Also in "The Big Goodbye" which is the first time we see Picard playing Dixon Hill, he had gotten a kiss, and when he left the holodeck to change into a suit, he was walking down the hall of the Enterprise with lipstick on his face.

What am I still doing here? Deanna, I pushed myself hard to get this far. I... I sacrificed a lot. I always said I wanted my own command and yet... something's holding me back. Is it wrong for me to want to stay?
