From The Beginning…
STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION
STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION (TNG) focuses on the 24th century adventures of Captain Jean-Luc Picard aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-D). This incarnation of the famous starship is much larger than the one captained by James T. Kirk a century earlier carrying a much larger crew complement: 1,012 men, women and surprisingly, children. This era’s Starfleet Command believes that men and women are more likely to sign up for long-term exploratory missions if they think of their ship as home. Thus, Picard’s crew enjoys many of the comforts they’d have otherwise left behind, including a wide variety of recreational opportunities, “replicated” food dishes to suit every palate and quarters large enough to share with spouses and offspring. There are schools for the children and a bar (stocked with synthetic alcohol, or synthehol) where the adults can unwind. However, the ongoing mission – no longer limited to a mere five years – remains virtually the same as it was during Kirk’s time: to seek out new life and new civilizations and to boldly go where no one has gone before.
Starring: Patrick Stewart (X-Men franchise, American Dad), Jonathan Frakes (Beyond Belief: Fact Or Fiction), Levar Burton (Perception, Captain Planet & The Planeteers), Brent Spiner (Independence Day, Warehouse 13), Wil Wheaton (Eureka, The Big Bang Theory), Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost, Sister Act)
