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.

Characters on the Enterprise frequently access hidden ship's mechanisms by removing "Mees Panels" from the walls. This is two-pronged inside joke: Jim Mees
was this show's set decorator, and "Mees Panels" are a reference to him and to the original series' "Jefferies Tubes", named for prop master Walter M. Jefferies

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

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
