One of the few TV shows I'll actually watch
I was originally a loyal and dedicated fan of the original series...when I'd seen all the episodes and all the movies, and needed something more to watch, I went and rented Generations...since it did still have some of the original cast. I was dissapointed by how little. I completely rejected the idea of a new cast...no one could ever replace the classics...but I went ahead and watched the rest of the movies...and then decided to watch a few episodes of TNG. Now about a year later I have seen almost every TNG episode, own seasons 6 & 7 o DVD, and own all the TNG movies with the exception of Nemesis. In my opinion, the people who said you couldn't redo Star Trek were quite mistaken. I love the way the characters interact, everyone on the show seems to have such a bond...on and off the screen. The show also deals with a great amount of philosophical ideas and moral issues. The character of Data is a perfect example of that. is he self aware? Or is he just an emotionless machine? I've always leaned towards the former...Brent Spiner does a wonderful job of giving a slight little hint of emotion that really makes you feel for the character and makes you doubt that he's nothing more than just a machine, and makes you question, just what is sentience? These are the kind of wonderful themes this show deals with. I'm not a big fan of TV in general...and there's very little on that will actually grasp my attention. But every night at 8:00 I sit down to watch TNG reruns. It's most definitely my favorite TV show out there.

Trivia

As the show progressed, writers had hoped to depict a shipboard wedding involving one of the show's characters. Producers at one point considered having Picard being permanently married, but ultimately decided to have lead recurring character O'Brien married instead (season four, episode eleven, "Data's Day"). At one point, O'Brien's wife was to be a female crew member, who replaced Wesley as the ship's Conn Officer.


Quotes

Lieutenant Worf: Mrs. Troi... I must protest your unauthorized presence on the bridge!
Lwaxana Troi: What does that little one do Mr. Woof?
Lieutenant Worf: Please Madame! That's is a torpedo launch initiator and it's - it is Worf madame, not Woof.


Goofs

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.


Crazy Credits

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."


Alternate Versions

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.
