Set almost 100 years after Captain Kirk's five-year mission, a new generation of Starfleet officers set off in the U.S.S. Enterprise-D on their own mission to go where no one has gone before.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
