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 three live-action Star Trek series after Star Trek
(1966) each had a cameo appearance by a character from its predecessor series in its premiere episode. In this one, season one, episode one, "Encounter at Farpoint", has Admiral Leonard H. McCoy, M.D. (DeForest Kelley
) appear as an honored guest being escorted by the Enterprise-D. See more
Apparently the Enterprise's shuttle bays are left unattended; there are many instances in TNG (as well as other ST series like Voyager) in which we hear of an "unathorized shuttle launch." It's extremely likely a ship with a military command structure would have personnel stationed in the shuttle bays at all times. However, it would make it more difficult for the writers to have someone get around the guards somehow, so it's an understandable omission. See more
