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.
Picard rose to his rank of Captain when his Commanding Officer aboard the U.S.S. Stargazer was killed in battle. A model of the Stargazer can be seen displayed by the back wall in Picard's ready room. The ship was shown in season one, episode nine, "The Battle".
Kill me? But why?
Capt. Picard: They're not convinced that you are fully Q, and they are also responsible for your parents' death.
Amanda Rogers: My parents?
Amanda Rogers: But what right do they have?
Amanda Rogers: Q, answer me! Are you afraid to face me?
Q: She's such a plucky little thing now, isn't she?
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.
The model of the Enterprise used in the opening credits is so detailed, a tiny figure can be seen walking past a window just before the vessel jumps to warp speed.
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.
