Set in the 24th century and decades after the adventures of the original crew of the starship Enterprise, this new series is the long-awaited successor to the original 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. Written by

Sir Patrick Stewart and Brent Spiner hated their characters' pets (the fish Livingston, and cat Spot). Stewart objected to the idea of keeping any life form in captivity, since the series argued for the freedom of every species. In fact, Ronny Cox agreed with him, and to "throw a bone" to Stewart, his character orders Livingston gone, when he takes command of the ship. Alternatively, Spiner just doesn't like cats. See more
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
