What a great show
I have been hooked on this show ever since I rented a couple of episodes on video over 10 years ago. The series was shown on Norwegian Television, but they stopped it at the end of the forth season. I then bought the whole series, one season after another on DVD. I watched all the episodes, and I realized how great this show is. Over the course of the series, the characters deepen and it gets to be more and more interesting. There is the mishap of the second season, but although it was the worst season, it did have some very good episodes, like 'The Measure of a Man' and 'Q Who?'. I have seen this show now five times from start to finish (and I think that will be seeing much more), but I have found that the episodes which are much action oriented, like the double episode 'Chain of Command', was quite boring. I love episodes like 'Darmok', 'The Inner Light', 'Disaster', 'The Nth Degree', 'First Contact' and 'Who Watches The Watchers?' where the crew meet new races or find themselves in a situation that they are not used to.

This is a series that can be appealing to people who like to see action in their science fiction and people who like to see, meet and know new races in their science fiction. This was a fantastic show.

Trivia

When Gates McFadden originally signed on for this show, it was on the understanding that her character would ultimately become a romantic foil for Captain Jean-Luc Picard. This did not materialize, and she was becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of character development for Dr. Crusher. Clashes with the producers led to her being released from her contract, hence Dr. Crusher's absence from season two, and replacement by Dr. Kate Pulaski (Diana Muldaur). Ironically, Muldaur later decided that serial television was not for her, so producer Rick Berman personally phoned McFadden to try to convince her to return for season three. A call from her dear friend Patrick Stewart clinched the deal for McFadden.


Quotes

Lieutenant Worf: Nepo!
Capt. Picard: This is mutiny!


Goofs

Whenever the video signal is being lost, instead of pixelating, as a digital signal would, the picture shows analog "snow," which would be unheard of by the era.


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.
