It is the main setting of the original Star Trek television series (1966–69), and it is depicted in films, other television series, spin-off fiction, products, and fan-created media. Under the command of Captain James T. Kirk, the Enterprise carries its crew on a mission "to explore strange, new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before." The 2022 series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds depicts the Enterprise under the command of Kirk's predecessor, Captain Christopher Pike. Matt Jefferies designed the Enterprise for television, and its core components – a saucer-shaped primary hull, two offset engine nacelles, and a cylindrical secondary hull – persisted across several television and film redesigns. The vessel influenced the design of subsequent franchise spacecraft, and the model filmed for the original Star Trek TV series has been on display for decades at the National Air and Space Museum. Initially a vision of the potential for human spaceflight, the Enterprise became a popular culture icon. The Enterprise has repeatedly been identified as one of the best-designed and most influential science fiction spacecraft. Development and production Concept and initial design Series creator Gene Roddenberry reviewed hundreds of science fiction magazines going back to 1931 to gather ideas about what he wanted Star Trek's main vessel to look like. Despite the research, he was more confident in what he did not want than what he did want.[4] He set several parameters: We're [...] out in deep space, on the equivalent of a cruiser-size spaceship. We don't know what the mode of power is, but I don't want to see any trails of fire. No streaks of smoke, no jet intakes, rocket exhaust, or anything like that [...]. It will be like a deep space exploration vehicle, operating throughout our galaxy.[5] An overhead and side elevation of the starship Enterprise. The first color rendering of the Enterprise design; soon after, Jefferies would realize the design into a small wooden model.[6] Note the prototypical elements used in Enterprise redesigns, other franchise vessels named Enterprise, and numerous other Star Trek spacecraft: a disc-like primary hull, a pair of offset engine nacelles, and a cylindrical secondary hull. Roddenberry further specified that the ship would have a crew of 100–150 and be incredibly fast.[7] Art director Pato Guzman's assistant, Matt Jefferies, was responsible for designing the ship and several of its sets.[4] Jefferies and Roddenberry did not want the vessel to look like any of the rocket ships already used by the aerospace industry or in popular culture;[8][9] many designs were rejected for being "too conventional".[10] To meet Roddenberry's requirement that the ship look believable, Jefferies tried "to visualize what the fourth, fifth or tenth generation of present-day equipment would be like".[11] Jefferies' experience with aviation let him imbue his designs with what he called "aircraft logic".[12] He imagined the ship's engines would be too powerful to be near the crew, requiring them to be set apart from the hull.[10] While Jefferies initially rejected a disk-shaped component, worried about the similarities to flying saucers, a spherical module eventually flattened into a disk.[10][13] During a visit to Jefferies, Roddenberry and NBC staff were drawn to a sketch of the ship resembling its final configuration.[14] Jefferies had created a small model of this design that, when held from a string, hung upside-down – an appearance he had to "unsell".[14] He kept the hull smooth, with a sense that the ship's components were serviced from inside.[15] He designed the Klingon starship seen in the third season by rearranging and changing the shape of Enterprise's basic modules: a main body, two engine pods, and a neck with a head on it.[16] Some of Jefferies' rejected design concepts – such as spherical hull sections and warp engines that encircle a ship – inspired future Star Trek vessel designs.[17] The Enterprise was originally going to be named Yorktown, but Roddenberry was fascinated by the aircraft carrier Enterprise and had "always been proud of that ship and wanted to use the name."[18][19] The NCC-1701 registry stems from NC being one of the international aircraft registration codes assigned to the United States. The second C was added because Soviet aircraft used Cs, and Jefferies believed a venture into space would be a joint operation by the United States and Russia.[20][21] Jefferies rejected 3, 6, 8, and 9 as "too easily confused" on screen;[21] he eventually reasoned the Enterprise was the first vessel of Starfleet's 17th starship design, hence 1701.[22] The Making of Star Trek explains that USS means "United Space Ship" and that "Enterprise is a member of the Starship Class".[23] Licensed texts, on-screen graphics, and dialogue later describe the ship as a Constitution-class vessel. Filming models Leonard Nimoy poses as Spock with the 33-inch (0.8 m) first filming model The first miniature built from Jefferies' drawings was a 4-inch (100 mm) scale model.[8] Desilu Studios, which produced Star Trek, hired Richard C. Datin to make a pre-production model.[24] Datin used a subcontractor with a large lathe for major subcomponents and otherwise worked on the model for about 110 hours in November 1964.[24] The 33-inch (0.84 m) model was made mostly of pine, with Plexiglass and brass details.[24][25] Datin made minor changes after Roddenberry's review, and he submitted the completed model – which cost about $600 – to Desilu in December 1964.[24] The 11-foot (3.4 m) filming model, which Paramount Pictures donated to the Smithsonian Institution in 1974[26] Desilu then ordered a larger filming model, which Datin contracted to Volmer Jensen and Production Model Shop in Burbank.[25] Datin supervised the work and did detailing on the model,[27] which was constructed from plaster, sheet metal, and wood.[28] When completed, it was 135 inches (3.43 m) long, weighed 125 kilograms (276 lb), and cost $6,000.[29][27][28] The model was delivered too late to be used much for the initial pilot, "The Cage".[30] When Roddenberry was approved to film the second pilot, "Where No Man Has Gone Before" (1966), various details of the 11-foot model were altered, and the starboard windows and running lights were internally illuminated.[30] When the series went into production, the model was altered yet again,[30] and it was regularly modified throughout its active filming.[31] Most of the fine details on the large model were not visible to television viewers.[32] Wiring for the interior lighting ran into the model on its left side, so the model could only be filmed from the right; for shots requiring the other side of the Enterprise, the footage was either flipped or filmed using the 33-inch model.[33] Because of this, some of the fine details added to the model were added only to its right side.[33] The 11-foot model was initially filmed by Howard Anderson.[25] Anderson's team struggled to film the model in a way that suggested it was moving at tremendous speeds, as the producers wanted to avoid the cliched look of a spacecraft drifting through space.[34] Additionally, the model was so large there was little room in the filming space for the camera to move around it.[35] Anderson could not keep up with the filming and special effects needs for regular production, so producers hired several other studios to contribute effects and additional footage.[36] Motion control equipment was too expensive, so the ship was filmed with stop motion.[37] Filming was often delayed by the heat generated by the studio and model's lights.[38] Most third-season footage of the Enterprise was reused first- or second-season footage.[30] Special effects were produced as cheaply as possible.[25] Animators for Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973–75) rotoscoped Enterprise footage to recreate the ship's movements, contributing to the impression of the animated series being a fourth season of the original.[39] The animated show's limited color palette could not accommodate all of the ship's various colors, so the Enterprise was depicted as a consistent gray.[40] Sets, sounds, and fixtures The Enterprise was meant to serve as a familiar, recurring setting, similar to Dodge City in Gunsmoke and Blair General Hospital in Dr. Kildare.[41] Reusing sets also helped address Desilu's budget concerns.[41] The bridge was monochromatic for "The Cage", but it was redecorated for "Where No Man Has Gone Before" because of the increasing popularity of color televisions.[42] The initial pilot episode's bridge set was rigid, making it difficult for cameras to move in.[43] For the series production, the bridge set was rebuilt to be modular, allowing large sections to be removed to allow easier camera movement.[43] As production continued, standing sets like the engine room and bridge became increasingly detailed.[44] The complicated electronics that provided bridge set readouts and lights required expensive air conditioning to avoid overheating.[45] The engine room, whose sense of scale was enhanced by the use of forced perspective,[46] was redressed as the shuttlebay.[45] Others sets that were redressed to save costs included the briefing room (which also served as the recreation room and cargo deck) and Kirk's cabin (which was also Spock's).[45] A portable maintenance tunnel set was used repeatedly, and Jefferies added new details to it each time it was used.[45] The production staff called the set the "Jefferies tube" as an inside joke, and the term is used in dialogue to describe similar crawl spaces in spinoffs.[47] Roddenberry described the ship's hallways as "Des Moines Holiday Inn Style".[48] To keep the ship from looking too sterile, Mike Minor created paintings that hung in Kirk's quarters, the recreation area, and the upper rim of the bridge.[49] Jefferies and associate producer Bob Justman walked through the production lots looking for "serendipitous items" that could be modified into set details to enhance the interiors.[50] The ship's chairs were manufactured by Burke of Dallas and were similar to the tulip chair designed by Eero Saarinen.[51][52] Sound effects designer Doug Grindstaff created sounds for different parts of the vessel: console sound effects were often created with a Hammond electric organ or other musical instrument, and engine sounds were created in part with a noisy air conditioner.[53] Although there is no sound in space, producers thought that dramatic license required the ship to make noise during exterior shots.[54] The sound of the ship "whoosh"ing past in the main title sequence was recorded by composer Alexander Courage.[55] Going into the show's second season, NBC executives pressed the production to have fewer episodes based on the ship, and more that occur on alien worlds. In April 1968, Roddenberry pushed back, comparing the Enterprise to the home and ranch on Bonanza, the location of some of that show's best episodes. He also said they would create new Enterprise sets to "help counteract any 'sameness' about the ship".[56] When production ended after the third season, major elements of the bridge set were donated to the UCLA Theater Arts Department, and the set was trashed.[57] Although the interior in The Animated Series was largely recreated from the live action series, a second turbolift was added to the bridge in response to Roddenberry being asked, "What do they do if the [one turbolift's] doors get stuck?"[58] Franz Joseph designed full Enterprise interior deck plans in 1974 with approval from Roddenberry.[59] 1970s redesigns for television and film Black-on-white drawings of the USS Enterprise Andrew Probert submitted this art to the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a "toy spaceship" in the likeness of the redesigned Enterprise in 1979. Probert was granted the patent in 1981.[60] Shortly after the animated Star Trek went off the air, pre-production began on Star Trek: Planet of the Titans.[61] Ken Adam and Ralph McQuarrie designed a new Enterprise with a triangular hull that later inspired the appearance of the eponymous ship in Star Trek: Discovery.[61][62] Planet of the Titans was dropped in favor of a return to television with Star Trek: Phase II, for which Jefferies designed a new Enterprise.[63] He began with the original design and identified components, such as the engines, that would have been upgraded.[64] Some components, like the sensor dish, would move inside the ship to be more easily serviced.[64] Abandoning Phase II in favor of producing Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) necessitated additional Enterprise redesigns because the film medium would resolve more detail than television,[63] and one of the most difficult challenges facing the producers was recreating the Enterprise.[28] Roddenberry told Cinefantastique that the changes to the Enterprise would be explained within the story as the outcome of a major refit.[65] When Jefferies left the project, art director Richard Taylor wanted to start over with designing the Enterprise.[66] However, Roddenberry convinced him to continue working with Jefferies' design.[66] Taylor brought on Andrew Probert to work with him on refining the ship's details.[66] Probert added items such as phaser banks, control thrusters, and hatches for saucer section landing gear; Taylor redesigned the edge of the saucer and elements of the warp nacelles.[67] Art director Joe Jennings and conceptual illustrator Mike Minor added additional details.[66] David Kimble created diagrams and deck plans for the updated Enterprise that were provided to model makers, toy companies, and other licensed product manufacturers.[68] The Enterprise (right) and Reliant approach each other in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982). Though the Enterprise was heavily redesigned for film, it retains the same basic components from its television appearance. In designing the Reliant, Joe Jennings and Mike Minor rearranged those components to establish its connection to the Star Trek universe while distinguishing it from the Enterprise.[69] Jim Dow was in charge of building the model.[70] Paramount Pictures subsidiary Magicam spent 14 months and $150,000 building the 8-foot (2.4 m), 39-kilogram (86 lb) model.[28] An arc-welded aluminum skeleton ensured parts of the ship would not sag, bend, or shake when moved.[71] While the original Enterprise model was seen in only 17 poses, the new model had five articulation points and could be shot from any angle.[28] Paul Olsen painted the "Aztec" hull pattern to provide an additional level of detail and to suggest the presence of interlocking panels providing strength.[72][73] The effect was made possible by small particles of mica in the paint, which altered its apparent color.[74] However, the paint created light flare that made it hard to discern the edge of the ship against a dark background, and bluescreen light reflected by the pearlescent paint also complicated filming.[28][75] Effects supervisor Douglas Trumbull relit the ship as if it were an ocean liner, "a grand lady of the seas at night", because there would be no external light source in deep space.[76] A 20-inch (51 cm) model was used for long shots.[71] Production designer Harold Michelson was responsible for the ship's interior design.[77] The Enterprise interiors were designed to be distinct from the film's Klingon ship, and certain support structure designs were used throughout the Enterprise sets to convey a shared motif. A new bridge had been designed and partially built for Phase II, and Michelson largely retained the design and its consoles. Chekov's console was rotated 90 degrees to break the monotony of stations facing the wall. Designer Lee Cole brought logic and function to the console designs, though Michelson wanted to remain focused on "drama, spectacle and beauty" over accuracy and logic. Rear projection films for bridge displays came initially from Stowmar Enterprises. When production exhausted the films faster than Stowmar could supply them, production designers manufactured their own from oscilloscopes, medical imagery, and an experimental computer lab.[78] Set designer Lewis Splittgerber described the engine room set as the most difficult to realize. Through forced perspective and small actors, the 40-foot (12 m) set was depicted as a 100-foot (30 m) engineering space.[79] Corridors were initially a straight-wall design similar to the television series, and Michelson changed them to an angular design with light radiating upward. Director Robert Wise wanted the corridors to be narrower than on the television series, and mirrors gave the impression that they were longer than they actually were.[80] Wise was also responsible for the ship's drab interior color scheme: the muted colors were meant to be comfortable across a five-year journey.[81][78] Sequel film adjustments, destruction, and return The Motion Picture's model was slightly refurbished for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), with its exterior shine dulled and extra detail added to the frame.[82] Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) staff found the Enterprise difficult to work with: it took eight people to mount the model and a forklift to move it.[82] Illustrator Mike Minor described the ship as a "sculpture" with an "aerodynamic shape," requiring careful filming so that its movements did not appear "silly".[83] ILM developed techniques to depict damage to the Enterprise without actually harming the model.[84] The budget required the reuse of existing sets, but they presented challenges in realizing director Nicholas Meyer's desire for a "livelier" tone.[83] The Enterprise was given a ship's bell, boatswain's call,[84] and more blinking lights and signage to match the nautical atmosphere Meyer wanted to convey.[85][86] Rear-projection systems for bridge displays were replaced with monitors looping taped material created by graphic designer Lee Cole at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.[83] The bridge set was "unbuttoned" so segments could be removed to better accommodate filming more dynamic action,[83] though filming on the 360-degree set was still challenging.[87] Further complicating the set was that it served three roles: the Enterprise bridge, the Reliant bridge, and the Starfleet bridge simulator.[87] The production crew made several "plugs" to cover consoles and alcoves, and pyrotechnics could destroy the plugs during combat sequences without damaging the underlying set.[87] The torpedo bay set is a redress of the Klingon bridge from The Motion Picture.[83] Kirk's quarters were redressed with more personal items and a more naval appearance, and the same set depicted Spock's more monastic quarters.[83] David Kimble's deck plans from The Motion Picture influenced how previously unseen interior arrangements like the torpedo bay were depicted in The Wrath of Khan.[68] Producer Harve Bennett decided to destroy the Enterprise in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) because the story was otherwise predictable. Recognizing the plot of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) was otherwise predictable, producer Harve Bennett decided to have the Enterprise destroyed.[88] Though he meant for the event to be kept secret, news leaked.[88][89] Visual effects supervisor Ken Ralston hated the Enterprise model and reveled in its destruction.[8] Rather than damage the large and expensive original model, several less expensive miniatures and modules were created and destroyed.[8] One of the destroyed models had been created by Brick Price Movie Miniatures for Star Trek Phase II.[90] Ralston had hoped the Enterprise's destruction in The Search for Spock would lead to a new Enterprise design for sequels, but the producers of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) decided to have the crew assigned to a duplicate of their previous ship.[91] It took ILM more than six weeks to restore and repaint the model to appear as the new USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-A.[91] After visiting ILM, Majel Barrett described the model as "gorgeous," and she said some of its details – such as the windows into the arboretum – were not done justice by photographs.[92] Although its original pearlescent paint job had been covered and the ship redressed as the Enterprise-A, the eight-foot film franchise model was used as a referent for the CGI Enterprise created for the 2001 director's cut of The Motion Picture.[75] The director's cut replaced several bridge computer voices with human voices to "warm up" the film.[75] The bridge and several other Enterprise film sets were redressed for use in Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987–1994).[93] Spinoff appearances and remaster CGI model The original television Enterprise bridge was partially recreated for the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Relics" (1992). The original set had long been torn down, and producers initially planned to use the film-era set. Ultimately, recreations of the captain's chair, navigation console, and engineering console were rented from fans, and the rest was filled in with archival footage and greenscreen technology.[94][95] The bridge was again partially recreated, with other parts added digitally, for the Deep Space Nine episode "Trials and Tribble-ations" (1996).[96] Mike Okuda used a computer to recreate the graphics seen on the Enterprise sets, and others were drawn by artist Doug Drexler.[97] Set designer Laura Richarz's biggest challenge was finding Burke chairs to populate the ship: she found just one, which the production team used to make molds to create more.[98] "Trials and Tribble-ations" also required exterior shots of the Enterprise. To film these, Greg Jein created an Enterprise model exactly half the size of the 11-foot original, and it was the first production model of the starship to be built in more than 30 years.[97][99] A CGI Enterprise makes a cameo appearance at the end of the Star Trek: Enterprise series finale, "These Are the Voyages..." (2005). Artists creating another CGI Enterprise for the remastered original series had to ensure the model was not so detailed that it was incongruous with the overall 1960s production.[100] 2009 film franchise reboot The re-conceptualized "alternate universe" USS Enterprise from the 2009 Star Trek film has the same core design as Matt Jefferies' original. It also includes elements from previous films, such as the "Aztec" paint scheme. The enlarged engine nacelles emphasize director J. J. Abrams's desire for the Enterprise to feel like a "hot rod". The Enterprise was redesigned for the 2009 Star Trek film. Previsualization lead David Dozoretz credits the designers for overcoming the challenge of doing "a 2009 version of the '60s".[101] Director J. J. Abrams wanted Enterprise to have a "hot rod" look while retaining the traditional shape, and he otherwise gave designers leeway to create the ship. The designers wanted the Enterprise to appear as carefully crafted as a luxury car.[102] Concept artist Ryan Church retained much of the original Enterprise design and focused on the functionality behind the familiar components.[101] His initial designs were modeled and refined by set designer Joseph Hiura. This design was then given to ILM for further refinement and developed into photo-realistic models by Alex Jaeger's team.[103] ILM's Roger Guyett, recalling the original Enterprise as being "very static", added moving parts.[74] ILM retained subtle geometric forms and patterns to allude to the original Enterprise, and the model's digital paint recreated the "Aztec" hull pattern from the first films.[74] The large engine nacelles had a sleeker finish and shape compared to the original ship's otherwise simple nacelles.[74] Sean Hargreaves' redesign of the successor NCC-1701-A "beef[ed] up" the vessel's support pylons, which are depicted as vulnerabilities in Star Trek Beyond (2016).[104] According to Abrams, recreating the original bridge would have been ridiculous and too small.[105] His enthusiasm for a new iPhone influenced Church's redesign for the bridge.[106] Sophisticated technology became a motif on the new set, with multiple displays and computer graphics.[107] The main viewscreen from the television series was kept, and giving different characters their own computer displays suggested the idea of a team working together.[107] Because the original series transporter room seemed flat to Abrams, he used swirling light and a moving camera to make the redesigned set and effects more dynamic.[108] The budget prevented the creation of a huge, functional engineering room set, and producers instead filmed in portions of a Budweiser plant.[109] Ben Burtt consulted with original series sound designed Douglas Grindstaff on sound design for the new Enterprise.[53] Redesign for streaming series Discovery The Enterprise appears briefly at the end of the Star Trek: Discovery's first-season finale (2018), and occasionally in the show's second season (2019). John Eaves, Scott Schneider, and William Budge redesigned the Enterprise for Discovery, which occurs about a decade before the original Star Trek.[110] The designers had an unusually long time to work on the ship: April to October 2017, whereas they usually had only a few weeks to design a vessel.[111] Other than a few small notes, they were given no explicit direction about the ship's appearance; Schneider called the redesign project the trio's "golden hour".[112] They briefly considered but quickly rejected a design significantly different from Jefferies' original.[112] Eaves created 10 relatively similar sketches that streamlined the original Enterprise to appear more consistent with Discovery's sleek aesthetic, and the team selected one to refine.[113] They developed the vessel with the assumption that components like the warp nacelles and impulse engines would be replaced over time; the modules for the Enterprise's appearance in Discovery are meant to appear more primitive than what is depicted in Star Trek.[113] The designers tried to incorporate elements from other ships that precede and succeed the Enterprise, such as the 21st-century Phoenix in Star Trek: First Contact (1996), the 22nd-century Enterprise in Star Trek: Enterprise (2001–2005), and the USS Enterprise-B in Star Trek Generations (1994).[114] They also included elements from the Enterprise refit for The Motion Picture.[115] One distinct challenge was the hull: Jefferies' design featured a smooth hull, but the lack of features would appear too simple on modern high-definition displays.[116] The designers added details, such as phaser banks and control thrusters, that "must have been there" on the original Enterprise but were not depicted on the Star Trek models.[117] The ship's scale also fluctuated, which meant the designers had to adjust the window sizes and patterns.[118] Budge kept the designers in check with ensuring details and features added to the Enterprise were consistent with other Discovery ships.[115] One such feature was whether the bridge would have a window: most Discovery ship bridges have a front-facing window, but the Enterprise had never been depicted like that.[119] The solution was to depict the Enterprise bridge as having a large piece of transparent aluminum at its front that can become either transparent or opaque.[120] Eaves sent the design team's model to the visual effects team, which made further design changes.[121] Discovery producer Gretchen J. Berg said she hoped fans see the Enterprise's appearance in Discovery as a blending of old and new Star Trek.[122] Another Discovery producer, Aaron Harberts, wasn't worried whether fans were satisfied with the ship's redesign: while many of the staff who developed the new appearance were Star Trek fans, Harberts said fans rarely agree on anything.[122] The Enterprise bridge appears in the second season's finale. Production designer Tamara Deverell and her team wanted to honor the original bridge but needed to create the set using modern techniques and to meet modern audience expectations. The production's widescreen format, as opposed to the original series' 4:3 aspect ratio, required the set design to be more "stretched out" horizontally; designers referenced Star Trek film bridges – also recorded in widescreen – to assist with designing for the different ratio. The bridge was a fully constructed set, save for greenscreen for the main viewer. The set maintained the original's layout and included references and details from Star Trek, such as Sulu's and Spock's console scanners, red bridge railings, and turbolift handles. They also created new elements, such as a corridor running behind the bridge. According to Deverell, the hardest part of designing the bridge was choosing the color palette. The bridge chairs were nearly identical to those used in Star Trek, and the captain's chair was heavily influenced by Captain Kirk's original.[123] A fan-created replica of the original bridge – later opened as museum – sent the production team hundreds of buttons for the set's consoles.[124] Strange New Worlds Enterprise is the main setting of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (2022), which depicts the ship led by Captain Christopher Pike. Anson Mount, who plays Pike, said Strange New Worlds has a "big idea of the week" like the original Star Trek, and as such the Enterprise is "the star of the show".[125] Rebecca Romjin, who plays first officer Una Chin-Riley, called the Enterprise "sexy, and groovy, and fun."[126] Producer Akiva Goldsman said the designers for Strange New Worlds "tried to evoke the experience of watching [The Original Series], but with the grammar available to us today." He said the ship is meant to be aspirational and to pull audiences into an imagined future.[127] The Enterprise in Strange New Worlds differs slightly from its appearance in Discovery.[128] The bridge set for Strange New Worlds was more compact than the one built for Discovery to bring it closer to the size of the original series set. The sets were designed to function like a practical starship, with moving components and pre-programmed monitor graphics that reacted to the actors.[125] While the viewscreen was a visual effect in Discovery, it was physically built into the Strange New Worlds set.[129] Sickbay was an entirely new design, meant to convey a large scale and capable of accommodating many camera movements.[129] Designers relied on a massive augmented reality LED volume to depict the scale of main engineering.[129][130] Due to COVID-19, some sets were not complete when filming began; Goldsman said they were "building the Enterprise around shooting on the Enterprise."[127] Production designers also changed the color scheme, "warming" it from its Discovery palette.[129] A specific shade of red is used as a secondary color throughout the ship, complementing warm and cold off-whites.[131] Depiction Starfleet commissioned the Enterprise in 2245. Robert April is the Enterprise's first captain, succeeded by Christopher Pike. Pike leads the Enterprise for about a decade, and he is the commanding officer in the original pilot, the second season of Star Trek: Discovery, and in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Throughout the first live action and animated Star Trek television series, Captain James T. Kirk commands the ship and its 430-person crew on an exploration mission from 2264 to 2269. Star Trek: The Motion Picture takes place in the 2270's as the Enterprise is completing an 18-month refit overseen by its new captain, Willard Decker. Decker describes the refit vessel as "an almost totally new Enterprise" when Admiral Kirk takes command to address a threat to Earth. Star Trek novels and other media depict a second five-year mission under Kirk's command between the events of the first and second films.[1] Captain Spock commands the Enterprise, serving as a training ship, at the beginning of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan in 2285.[1] Kirk assumes command to investigate problems at space station Regula 1. The USS Reliant, hijacked by Khan Noonien Singh, seriously damages the Enterprise; Spock sacrifices his life to save the ship. Starfleet decides to decommission the Enterprise at the beginning of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and Kirk and his senior officers steal the ship as part of their plan to restore Spock's life. During their mission, a Klingon attack disables the ship. Kirk lures most of the Klingons onto the crippled Enterprise, which he and his officers set to self-destruct before abandoning ship. When Kirk and his officers return to Earth, Kirk is demoted to captain and given command of a new USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-A. Reboot film series The 2009 reboot film Star Trek and its sequels occur in a different timeline than the original Star Trek. The Enterprise first appears while under construction in Riverside, Iowa, in 2255. Captain Christopher Pike commands Enterprise on its 2258 maiden voyage to respond to a Vulcan distress call. At the film's conclusion, James Kirk is promoted to captain and receives command of the Enterprise. The vessel is destroyed in Star Trek Beyond and a new Enterprise, NCC-1701-A, is commissioned under Kirk's command. Critical reaction Original appearance Like other Star Trek ships with the same name, the original Enterprise is "a character in its own right,"[15] and the ship "was just as important ... as Kirk, Spock, and McCoy".[132] According to film critic Scott Jordan Harris, the Enterprise was the franchise's most important character, pointing out: Crucially, the famous words that begin each episode of the TV show, and that recur in the films, are not "These are the voyages of Captain Kirk..." or "These are the voyages of Starfleet..." They are "These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise..."[133] Writing in the Journal of Popular Film & Television, National Air and Space Museum curator Margaret Weitekamp identifies two distinct celebrity Enterprises: the fictional starship Enterprise as a character or popular culture icon, and the actual physical objects (for example, the filming models) as an iconic design.[134] According to Weitekamp, "The two Enterprises overlap, and are clearly related, but they do not map completely onto each other," and unpacking distinctions between them contributes to scholarly analysis of popular and material culture and of "this significant television artifact".[134] The Enterprise's design, which influenced future starships in the franchise, is iconic.[135][136] The design came at the end of a trend for science-fiction spaceships to resemble rockets, and just as real spacecraft began to influence sci-fi designs.[137] When it first appeared on television, the Enterprise was called an "elegant and weird looking behemoth".[15] Design expert Jonathan Glancey described the "convincing and exciting" Enterprise as having the same aesthetic appeal as the Concorde jet, B-17 bomber, and Queen Elizabeth 2 ocean liner.[138] The interiors are also exemplars of 1960s design.[52] Popular Mechanics said the original Enterprise has the best design of the franchise's various ships named Enterprise.[139] io9 ranked the original design as the best version of the Enterprise, characterizing the original as superior to ten later versions of its namesake.[135] Film redesign and "death" Harris included the Enterprise as one of the 50 most significant objects to appear in film, alongside the ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz, the Maschinenmensch in Metropolis, and the Batmobile in Batman Begins.[133] Time called the ship's redesign for The Motion Picture "bold" and "handsome".[140] Conversely, Harlan Ellison called the Enterprise a "jalopy" in The Motion Picture, and The Washington Post said the Enterprise looked "like a toy boat in a lava lamp" in The Wrath of Khan.[141][142] Entertainment Weekly wrote that, after being depicted as a complicated vessel requiring detailed care in The Wrath of Khan, it seemed "a bit loony" for the Enterprise to be operable by just a handful of officers in The Search for Spock.[143] Jill Sherwin suggested that the aging Enterprise in The Search for Spock served as a metaphor for the aging Star Trek franchise.[144] io9 ranked the film appearance as the second-best design design of an Enterprise.[135] The ship's destruction has been described as "truly iconic" and "a good way to go",[145][146] though David Gerrold wrote that it "casts a pall" over The Search for Spock that even Spock's resurrection does not displace.[147] In her biography of DeForest Kelley, Terry Lee Rioux calls the Enterprise a "mother goddess" who, consistent with "one of the oldest and highest myths" in humanity, sacrifices herself so her children, the crew, can live on.[148] David C. Fein, who produced the director's cut of The Motion Picture, described the Enterprise as Kirk's lover, and said destroying the ship meant Kirk "killed the woman that he loves more than any existing being in the world."[75] Popular Mechanics ranked the ship's destruction the 32nd greatest scene in science fiction.[149] Spin-off television appearances The New York Times called it "a joy" to see the original Enterprise as redesigned for Discovery's second-season premiere.[150] Engadget called the Enterprise in Strange New Worlds "gorgeous inside and out."[151] Writing for Tor.com, Keith DeCandido praised Strange New Worlds' producers for balancing the Enterprise's original 1960s look with what audiences expect from modern productions.[152] TrekCore said Strange New Worlds' set dressing and use show the Enterprise "as both a character unto herself and as a mirror reflecting the people who inhabit her."[153] Impact Within the franchise The original Enterprise and 1979 film designs have affected subsequent Star Trek productions. The USS Excelsior in Star Trek III is meant to make the Enterprise "look old and out of date".[154] Model maker Bill George tried to imagine what the Enterprise would look like if it were designed by the Japanese, and he used that impression as the basis for his refinement of the Excelsior model.[154] Andrew Probert returned to Star Trek to design a new USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-D, for Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987–1994), which takes place 100 years after the original Star Trek. The Enterprise-D retains the hallmarks of Matt Jefferies' design for the original Enterprise: a saucer section, engineering section, and a pair of engine nacelles.[155] Probert did this in part to assuage skeptical fans who were concerned about the original Enterprise being "replaced".[156] Much of Probert's design is based on a "what if?" painting he made after finalized the 1979 film Enterprise design.[155] The USS Titan in Star Trek: Picard's third season draws inspiration from the film redesign, which producer Terry Matalas called "the best starship design ever made.[157] Broader culture Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry (third from right, in dark brown), the Star Trek cast (with the exception of William Shatner), and NASA administrators attended the Space Shuttle Enterprise's rollout ceremony on September 17, 1976. A letter-writing campaign convinced NASA to name the shuttle Enterprise in honor of the television vessel. The starship Enterprise has had considerable cultural impact,[158] and the original ship's model is "a living cultural object".[29] Bjo Trimble said the original Star Trek received more fan letters about the Enterprise than any of the actors.[147] According to film critic Scott Jordan Harris, although the contemporaneous Apollo program prompted intellectual awareness of the possibilities of space travel, it was the Enterprise of the 1960s that sparked space travel fantasies.[133] A 1976 write-in campaign led to the first Space Shuttle being named Enterprise rather than Constitution.[159] In 2009, Virgin Galactic named its first commercial spaceship VSS Enterprise to honor the Star Trek vessel.[160] The United States Navy evaluated the efficiency of the Enterprise bridge's style and layout,[161] and the USS Independence's bridge and USS Zumwalt's Ship's Mission Center have been compared to the Enterprise bridge.[162][163] An Enterprise bridge replica created for a Star Trek fan series was later opened as a public exhibit.[164] The distinct beeps emitted by R2-D2 in Star Wars are "an offspring" of the melodic sounds created for the Enterprise's bridge console.[53] Vulcan, Alberta, created a 31-foot (9.4 m) model starship inspired by the Enterprise.[165] A roadside replica starship atop a stone base The visitor's center in Vulcan, Alberta, has a replica starship designed like the Enterprise. The Enterprise design has been licensed for use in variety of games, models, and toys. AMT's 1966 Enterprise model is one of the company's highest-selling kits:[166] one million kits sold during the show's first year of production; the previous best-seller, a car from The Musters, took two years to reach one million sales.[167] Ballantine Books released a set of Enterprise blueprints in April 1975, and by December 1976 they were in their seventh printing.[168] The first run of a cutaway drawing of the Enterprise for The Motion Picture sold over one million prints.[68] In 2010, Simon & Schuster's Gallery Books published a Haynes Manual for "owners" of the USS Enterprise. The United States Postal Service has released several USS Enterprise stamps.[169] Pulitzer Prize–winning editorial cartoonist Mike Luckovich has used the Enterprise as the setting for two of his illustrations for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.[170][171] Production models and props Paramount Pictures donated the original series filming model to the Smithsonian Institution in 1974, disassembled across three crates and dirty.[27][30][29] In shipping the model, Paramount estimated the value of the model at $5,000.[172] Starting in 1976, it hung at an exhibit gallery entrance at the National Air and Space Museum before being moved to the gift shop, where it stayed for 14 years.[134] In the first of its initial restorations, the model was altered to look more like the starship Enterprise and less like a studio filming model.[173] The model underwent restorations in 1974, 1984, 1992, and 2016.[174] For much of its time on display, fans have been surprised at the differences between the model and their expectations about how the "real" spacecraft should appear.[31] A substantial, multi-year restoration culminated in 2016 with the unveiling of a new display in the Milestones of Flight Hall.[27][175] This restoration highlighted the duality of the Enterprise as both a filming model and inspirational starship.[176] The original captain's chair prop sold at auction for $304,750.[177] In 2006, Paul Allen bought the Enterprise model created for the original Star Trek films for $240,000, and it is on display at the Museum of Pop Culture.[28] Another model of the film version is on display at aerospace company Blue Origin.[178] References Citations "Enterprise, U.S.S." startrek.com.

Nichelle Nichols in Star Trek Nichelle Nichols in Star Trek George Takei in Star Trek George Takei in Star Trek Star Trek was created by American writer and producer Gene Roddenberry and chronicles the exploits of the crew of the starship USS Enterprise, whose five-year mission is to explore space and, as stated in the title sequence, “to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.” The series takes place in the 23rd century, after a benign and advanced alien people, the Vulcans, has introduced their technologies to Earth, allowing humankind to embark on intergalactic travel at speeds faster than light. Commanded by the blustering Capt. James T. Kirk (played by William Shatner), the Enterprise engages in an altruistic research mission intended to document and observe the far reaches of space. Its crew encounters various alien life forms, not all of them as friendly as the Vulcans, most notably the Klingons, bellicose adversaries who frequently cross paths with the Enterprise. Kirk’s principal confidante is Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy), a half-human, half-Vulcan whose actions are ruled by logic almost entirely unsullied by emotion. The pointedly multicultural crew also includes “Bones” McCoy (DeForest Kelley), the ship’s irascible doctor; Lieut. Uhura (Nichelle Nichols); Mr. Sulu (George Takei); Ensign Chekov (Walter Koenig); and Mr. Scott (James Doohan), the engineer who controls the Enterprise’s transporter (not to be confused with the transponder, a homing device), dematerializing and rematerializing his shipmates so that they can travel instantly through space.

Britannica Quiz Character Profile starship Enterprise starship Enterprise Vulcan hand salute Vulcan hand salute Although the series gained some critical notice, it was canceled after three seasons because of low ratings. However, Star Trek retained a core following of devoted fans (Trekkies) that multiplied as wildly as tribbles, the furry creatures at the centre of one of the series’ most beloved episodes, as reruns continued to air. Eventually, the series snowballed into a phenomenon and became one of the most recognizable science-fiction brands in history. The show spawned a number of spin-off series, including Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987–94), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993–99), Star Trek: Voyager (1995–2001), Star Trek: Enterprise (2001–05), and Star Trek: Picard (2020– ). The franchise also yielded numerous feature films, among them Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), which was followed by five further movies featuring the cast of the television show; Star Trek Generations (1994), which was the first of four movies set in the world established by the Next Generation television series; and a series of films centred on reimaginings of the original characters, including Star Trek (2009), Star Trek into Darkness (2013), and Star Trek Beyond (2016).

The franchise is primarily set in the future, ranging from the mid-22nd century (Star Trek: Enterprise) to the early 25th century (Star Trek: Picard). However the franchise has also outlined a fictional future history of Earth prior to this, and, primarily through time travel plots, explored both past and further-future settings, including the third season onwards of Star Trek: Discovery being set in the 32nd century. The chronology is complicated by the presence of divergent timelines within the franchise's narrative, as well as internal contradictions and retcons. The original series generally avoided assigning real-world dates to its futuristic setting, instead using the stardate system. Series from Star Trek: The Next Generation onwards defined their temporal settings in conventional form. Series, books, and film settings This table shows each TV series and movie, its year of release or broadcast, the year it was set in according to the prevailing Okuda chronology (see below), and the stardate range for that year.

These reefs become home to thousands of different marine species.[clarification needed] 2053 World War III ends and Earth is left devastated, mostly because of nuclear warfare. Most of the major cities are left in ruins with few remaining governments and the death total reaching 600 million. Scientific advancement continues, however.[20] (In TOS, WWIII took place in the 1990s and is established as an alternate name for the Eugenics Wars[13] while DS9's "Doctor Bashir, I Presume?" had the Eugenics Wars in the 22nd century. SNW's "Strange New World" retcons the Eugenics Wars to the 21st century, but prior to the outbreak of WWIII.) 2062 Oldtown San Francisco is struck by an enormous earthquake, the Greater Quake, and it takes 20 years for the city to be restored. 2063 The past events of Star Trek: First Contact. Zefram Cochrane makes the first human warp flight with the Phoenix as civilization rebuilds following WWIII. This attracts the Vulcans and they make first contact with humans. (TOS "Metamorphosis" stated that Zefram Cochrane disappeared 150 years ago at the age of 87, which fits with the current timeline.) c. 2065 The SS Valiant is launched.[1][21] 2067 The uncrewed interstellar warp probe Friendship 1 is launched.[22] 2069 The colony ship SS Conestoga is launched. It would found the Terra Nova colony.[23] 2079 Earth begins to recover from its nuclear war.[24] The recovery is aided and partially organized by a newly established political entity called the European Hegemony.[1] 2088 T'Pol is born. 22nd century 2103 Earth colonizes Mars. 2112 Jonathan Archer is born in upstate New York on Earth.[25] 2119 Zefram Cochrane, who now is residing on Alpha Centauri, sets off for parts unknown and disappears.

The Terran Empire learns of the ship's existence and subsequently captures it for their own use. 2156–2160 The Earth–Romulan War is fought between United Earth and its allies, and the Romulan Star Empire. The war ends with the Battle of Cheron, which results in Earth inflicting a humiliating defeat on the Romulans, to such a degree that the Empire still considers the battle an embarrassment over 200 years later. The Romulan Neutral Zone is established.[1] 2161 The United Federation of Planets is founded by Earth, Tellar, Andoria, and Vulcan.[28][29] 2165 Sarek, Federation diplomat and father of Spock, is born on Vulcan.[30] 2184 Johnathan Archer is elected as the first United Federation of Planets President. 2192 Johnathan Archer steps down as UFP President after eight years. 2195 Robert April is born. 2160s to 2196 The Daedalus class starship is active.[31] 23rd century 2222 Montgomery Scott is born in Scotland.[32] 2226 Michael Burnham is born on Earth.[33] 2227 Leonard McCoy is born in Georgia, North America on Earth.[34] 2230 Spock, the son of Sarek and the human Amanda Grayson, is born on Vulcan.[35] 2232 The events of Star Trek: Short Treks episode "The Girl Who Made the Stars" take place. 2233 James T.

Kirk's father, George Kirk, is killed. 2238 The events of Star Trek: Short Treks episode "The Brightest Star" take place. 2241 (alternate timeline) Pavel Chekov born in Russia on Earth 2245–2250 The USS Enterprise, a Constitution class vessel is launched under the command of Robert April, on a five-year mission of exploration.[1] In the alternate time line created by Nero's attack on the USS Kelvin, the Enterprise is still under construction in 2255 and is not launched on its maiden voyage until 2258. 2245 Pavel Chekov is born to Russian parents.[37] In the alternate timeline created by Nero's attack on the USS Kelvin, Chekov is only eight years younger than James T. Kirk, implying a birthdate of 2241.[38] 2250 After a refit, the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) is launched on a second five-year mission. Command of the ship is assigned to Captain Christopher Pike.[1] 2254 The events of Star Trek: Short Treks episode "Q&A" take place. The events of "The Cage".[39] 2256-2257 The events of Star Trek: Discovery season 1 take place, The Klingon Federation War. 2257-2258 The events of Star Trek: Discovery season 2 take place. The USS Discovery and USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) engage in a pitched battle to neutralise the rogue AI Control. The battle is a success, but the Enterprise falsely reports that the Discovery was lost, with all hands to conceal the fact that it traveled 930 years into the future in order to prevent Control from reasserting itself. The Enterprise subsequently undergoes repairs and departs for Edrin II 4 months later. 2258 (alternate timeline) The events of Star Trek (2009 Movie) take place. Nero destroys the planet Vulcan – killing billions, including Spock's mother – as well as 9 Federation starships. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) is built in the state of Iowa and is launched on its maiden voyage under Captain Christopher Pike. James T. Kirk becomes the ship's new captain shortly afterward.

Kirk is assigned command of the Enterprise on a historic five-year mission.[1] (In the originally canonical Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology this was 2207 to 2212; Star Trek: Strange New Worlds contradicts this somewhat by dating Pike's accident to approximately 2268 or 2269 (per dialogue in the episode "Strange New World" stating the accident occurs 10 years in the future), but the TOS episode "The Menagerie" takes place during the first season, approximately a year into Kirk's mission rather than close to its end.) 2265 The events of "Where No Man Has Gone Before" (TOS) 2266–2269 The events of Star Trek: The Original Series take place. 2269-2270 The events of Star Trek: The Animated Series take place.

Kirk and enters major refit while Kirk is promoted to Admiral at Starfleet Command. Capt. Will Decker is assigned command of the vessel. 2273 The events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. 2273-2278 The upgraded USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) embarks on a five-year mission under the command of Admiral James T.

Kirk takes over command of the Enterprise from Captain Spock, who subsequently dies. The events of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The original USS Enterprise (NCC-1701), having been decommissioned by Starfleet, is destroyed to prevent it from falling into Klingon hands. Spock is revived. 2286 The events of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A) and is launched on its maiden voyage under the command of the newly demoted Capt. James Kirk. 2287 The events of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. 2293 The events of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A) is decommissioned shortly afterwards. The opening events of Star Trek Generations. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-B) is launched under the command of John Harriman. While responding to a distress call, the Enterprise is struck by a discharge from the Nexus which breaches the hull and James T. Kirk is presumed killed in the blast. (The exact timing is uncertain and the events of Generations could take place in a later year.) 24th century 2305 Jean-Luc Picard is born in LaBarre, France on Earth.[40] 2311 The Tomed Incident.[1][41] 2319 Gary Seven is born. 2324 Beverly Howard (Crusher) is born in Copernicus City, Luna.[40] 2327 Jean-Luc Picard graduates from Starfleet Academy on Earth (2323-2327).[citation needed] 2329 Chakotay is born on a Federation colony near Cardassian space in the demilitarized zone 2332 Benjamin L. Sisko is born in New Orleans, Louisiana on Earth.[1] 2333 Jean-Luc Picard becomes captain of the USS Stargazer.[1] 2335 Geordi La Forge is born in Mogadishu, Somalia on Earth.[40] William T. Riker is born in Valdez, Alaska on Earth.[1] 2336 Deanna Troi is born on Betazed.[40] Kathryn Janeway is born in Bloomington, Indiana on Earth.[42] 2337 Tasha Yar is born in a failed Federation colony on Turkana IV.[1] 2340 Worf, son of Mogh, is born on the Klingon homeworld, Qo'noS.[1][43] 2341 Julian Bashir is born.[44] 2343 The Galaxy class development project is officially given the greenlight by Starfleet Command.[45] 2344 The Enterprise-C, under the command of Captain Rachel Garrett, is destroyed defending a Klingon settlement on Narendra III under attack from Romulans.[1][46] Due to the Enterprise-C's sacrifice, a new era of more open communication begins between the Federation and the Klingon Empire, leading to a formalized alliance. 2345 Sela (half-romulan/half-human), daughter of Natasha Yar (alternate reality from "Yesterday's Enterprise"), is born. 2346 Worf's parents are killed by Romulans in the Khitomer massacre. Worf (age 6) is adopted by human parents.[1][47] 2349 Annika Hansen is born in Tendara Colony, to Magnus and Erin Hansen. 2355 Magnus, Erin, and Annika Hansen are assimilated by the Borg while on a research mission in the Delta quadrant. The USS Stargazer is attacked by an unknown vessel (later discovered to be Ferengi in origin) in the Maxia Zeta system. Jean-Luc Picard wins the confrontation by devising a tactic which becomes known as the Picard Manoeuvre. However, due to damage suffered during the battle, the crew are forced to abandon ship. The Stargazer is later recovered in 2364. 2357 Worf is the first Klingon to enter Starfleet Academy.[1] USS Galaxy (NX-70637), the prototype Galaxy class is launched.[45] 2363 USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D), the third Galaxy-class starship (following the Galaxy and Yamato) is launched from the Utopia Planitia shipyards in Mars orbit (under the command of Jean-Luc Picard), and becomes the Federation's new flagship. 2364–2370 The events of Star Trek: The Next Generation. 2367 The Borg assimilate Captain Jean-Luc Picard; the Battle of Wolf 359 is fought 7.7 light years from Earth in Sector 001. The battle results in the loss of 39 Starfleet vessels and over 11,000 lives. Benjamin Sisko aboard the USS Saratoga is a participant in the battle and is one of the few survivors alongside his son Jake Sisko. With the task force lost, the Borg continue to Earth. Picard is rescued and the Borg cube is destroyed via the actions of the crew of the Enterprise-D. 2369–2375 The events of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. 2369 Terok Nor, a Cardassian space station orbiting Bajor, is taken over by Starfleet following the end of hostilities between Bajor and Cardassia. It is redesignated Deep Space Nine and placed under the command of Commander (later Captain) Benjamin Sisko. Soon after, the discovery of a stable wormhole between the Alpha and Gamma quadrants leads to DS9 being relocated near the wormhole's location in order to facilitate trade, exploration and defense. 2370 The events of Star Trek: Enterprise episode "These Are the Voyages..." take place. (this is due to the story being depicted as a holodeck recreation concurrent with the events of the TNG episode The Pegasus). The USS Defiant (NX-74205), a mothballed prototype originally designed to fight the Borg, is commissioned into active service and is assigned to Benjamin Sisko to help protect DS9. Due to the Defiant being over-powered and over-gunned for its size, several flaws in the ship's design require attention before it reaches a fully operational status. The Defiant is officially classed as an escort vessel; however, unofficially it is considered a warship built purely for combat. 2371 The "present-day" events of Star Trek Generations. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D)'s stardrive section is destroyed by a warp core breach; the saucer section containing the crew makes a forced landing on Veridian III. The ship is subsequently declared a total loss. James T. Kirk reappears from the temporal continuum in which he had been since his disappearance in 2293. Kirk is killed on Veridian III. 2371–2378 The events of Star Trek: Voyager. "Caretaker": the USS Voyager, under the command of Capt. Kathryn Janeway is stranded deep in the Delta Quadrant and faces a 75-year-long voyage back to Federation space. Janeway merges her crew with survivors of a vessel staffed by members of an organization called the Maquis that at this time are de facto enemies of the Federation. 2372 Sovereign-class USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E) is launched under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard (with most of his command crew from the 1701-D intact). 2373 The events of Star Trek: First Contact. The Battle of Sector 001 occurs with a Starfleet Task Force engaging in a running battle with a Borg cube en route to Earth. The USS Defiant (NX-74205) from DS9 is severely damaged but not destroyed, with the crew evacuating to the Enterprise. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E) follows a Borg sphere through a temporal rift and events shift at that point to 2063. Still unaware that the USS Voyager is stuck in the Delta Quadrant, Starfleet officially declares the ship lost with all hands. 2373–2375 Tensions between the Alpha and Gamma quadrants erupt into open warfare, igniting the Dominion War fully, with DS9 at its epicenter. 2374 Using an abandoned sensor array network, the USS Voyager detects a Federation vessel, the USS Prometheus, on the edge of the Alpha Quadrant and transmits The Doctor to the ship. After freeing the ship from the Romulans with help from the Prometheus EMH, Voyager officially re-establishes contact with Starfleet. 2375 The USS Defiant (NX-74205) is destroyed. Several weeks later, DS9 receives a replacement Defiant Class vessel, the USS Sáo Paulo. Captain Sisko is granted special permission by Starfleet to rename the vessel Defiant. After devastating losses on both sides, the Federation, alongside the Romulan and Klingon Empire, make a final push against the Dominion, resulting in the Battle of Cardassia. The Dominion subsequently surrenders to the Federation. The events of Star Trek: Insurrection.[48] Dialogue in this film and in the DS9 finale "What You Leave Behind" place the chronology of this film as during that episode, after the final battle of the war but before the treaty signing ceremony. Most notable in the film is Worf's ability to leave the station to join the Enterprise, as well as a line about Federation diplomats being involved in Dominion negotiations, and the Federation's willingness to work with the Son'a, who are established as a Dominion ally during the war. 2378 With the help of Admiral Janeway from an alternate timeline in which the ship's return is delayed many years with tragic results, the USS Voyager returns to the Alpha Quadrant. ("Endgame"). Tom Paris' and B'Elanna Torres's daughter is born. At some point after returning home (and prior to the events of Star Trek: Nemesis, Janeway is promoted to admiral in the main timeline. 2379 The events of Star Trek: Nemesis, resulting in the death of Lieutenant Commander Data.[49] Discovery of previously unknown Android named "B-4", a prototype android similar in design to Lt. Commander Data but with a notably less advanced Positronic Network. 2380 The events of Star Trek: Resurgence (2023 video game) take place. 2380-2381 The events of Star Trek: Lower Decks. [50] 2383 The events of Star Trek: Prodigy. 2385, First Contact Day The events of Star Trek: Short Treks episode "Children of Mars" take place. The Utopia Planitia Fleetyards on Mars are sabotaged and subsequently destroyed by rogue synthetics in a surprise attack. The battle results in the loss of 92,143 lives, the planet itself being considered destroyed, its stratosphere ignited, and the destruction of the rescue armada to evacuate Romulus. In the aftermath of the attack, the Federation, unable to determine how or why the synths went rogue, bans the creation of synthetic lifeforms. 2386 Lieutenant Icheb is captured and stripped for his Borg parts by Bjayzl, and subsequently euthanized by Seven of Nine. 2387 A star in the Romulan Empire goes Supernova. Ambassador Spock attempts to counter the resulting shockwave using Red Matter, but is unable to save the planet Romulus from destruction. Spock and the Romulan mining ship Narada, commanded by Nero, are dragged into a black hole created by the Red Matter detonation and arrive in the past. Nero's arrival in 2233 and subsequent attack on the USS Kelvin creates the Kelvin Timeline. 2394 Voyager returns to the Alpha Quadrant in the beginning of Star Trek: Voyager series finale ("Endgame"). This sets in motion events in which Kathryn Janeway becomes dissatisfied and begins laying plans to eventually change the timeline and send Voyager home sooner. 2395 The "Future" in the Star Trek: The Next Generation series finale ("All Good Things..."). 2399 The events of Star Trek: Picard season 1.[51] 25th century 2401 The events of Star Trek: Picard season 2 begin. The events of Star Trek: Picard season 3 begin. 2402 The events of Star Trek: Picard season 3 begin. 2404 The original timeline split in the Star Trek: Voyager series finale (Endgame), where Admiral Janeway goes back 26 years to the Delta Quadrant and secures Voyager's earlier return to the Alpha Quadrant. This begins a new timeline (as yet unnamed). 26th century c. 2540–2550 The Starship Enterprise-J (presumably NCC 1701-J) is commissioned and takes part in the Battle of Procyon V against the Spherebuilders as shown in Enterprise episode "Azati Prime". 27th century Temporal Cold War (with agents from the 31st century); first established in the pilot episode of Star Trek: Enterprise and recurring until the series' fourth season premiere, it is a struggle between those who would alter history to suit their own ends and those who would preserve the integrity of the original timeline. With the distance between them having expanded over the centuries and making travel increasingly difficult, the last crossing between the Prime and Mirror Universes occurs at some point during this century. 29th century The Aeon-type timeship is in active service during this century ("Future's End"), as is the Wells-class timeship Relativity ("Relativity"). 30th century Around the year 2958, supplies of Dilithium in the Milky Way started to dry up, marking the beginning of an energy crisis. The United Federation of Planets began development and trials of alternatives to warp drive, though none proved to be reliable. The Federation spends much of this century engaged in a temporal war with the objective of upholding the Temporal Accords to ensure the timeline remains unaltered. 31st century 3069 A cataclysmic galaxy-wide event referred to as "The Burn" occurs. Nearly all dilithium in the galaxy suddenly went inert, causing a massive loss of life and the destruction of every ship and facility with an active warp core. In the aftermath, the remaining dilithium became an ever more scarce resource. With few ships and warp travel severely impeded, no explanation for what happened and the uncertainty if it will happen again, the United Federation of Planets effectively collapses. 3074 The main plot of the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Living Witness" takes place, and the final scene takes place "many years" after that. 3089 The Federation & Starfleet Command depart Earth for a new headquarters location. Around the same time, the United Earth government withdraws Earth from the Federation, becoming fully self-sufficient and isolating itself from the rest of the galaxy. Episodes with time traveler Daniels from Enterprise "Cold Front", "Shockwave", "Azati Prime" 32nd century 3186 This is the year Gabrielle Burnham arrived in after using the Red Angel suit to escape a Klingon attack on her home. (Discovery S2 E10) 3188-3190 The events of Star Trek: Discovery seasons 3 to 4. 34th Century 3374 According to Obrist, if the Krenim weapon ship continued to alter time to this point, full restoration of the Krenim Imperium would not have been achieved. (Star Trek: Voyager, "Year of Hell") Far future The events of Star Trek: Short Treks episode "Calypso" take place. History of the chronology (historiography) Several efforts have been made to develop a chronology[52] for the events depicted by the Star Trek television series and its spin-offs. This matter has been complicated by the continued additions to the Star Trek canon, the existence of time travel and multiple concurrent timelines, and the scarcity of Gregorian calendar dates given in the show (stardates instead being used). Original series Not many references set the original series in an exact time frame, and those that exist are largely contradictory. In the episode "Tomorrow Is Yesterday", a 1960s military officer says that he's going to lock Captain Kirk up "for two hundred years", to which Kirk replies, with wry amusem*nt: "That ought to be just about right." Likewise, in the episode "Space Seed", it is said that the 1996 warlord Khan Noonian Singh is from "two centuries" ago. Both these references place the show in the 22nd century. However, in the episode "Miri", it is said that 1960 was around 300 years ago, pushing the show into the 23rd century. Finally, the episode "The Squire of Gothos" implied that the light cone of 19th century Earth has expanded to 900 light years of radius, which seems to set the show in the 28th century, since light would take nine centuries to traverse that distance. According to notes in The Making of Star Trek, the show is set in the 23rd century, and the Enterprise was supposed to be around 40 years old. Roddenberry says in this book that the stardate system was invented to avoid pinning down the show precisely in time frame.[53] Roddenberry's original pitch for the series dated it "'somewhere in the future. It could be 1995, or maybe even 2995".[54] Early chronologies The Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology and FASA, a publisher of the first licensed Star Trek role-playing game, chose to take the "Space Seed figure", adding a few years to make sure the events of the Original Series were in the 23rd century. This dating system is followed by other spin-off works in the 1980s, including Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise. This timeline system gives the following dates[55][56] The sub-warp ship the UNSS Icarus makes first contact with Alpha Centauri in 2048, and there meets Zefrem Cochran [sic], who has invented warp drive.[55] The first Earth warp ship, the Bonaventure makes its first voyage, to Tau Ceti, in 2059.[55] The first contact with Vulcans is in 2065, when a damaged Vulcan spaceship is rescued by UNSS Amity.[55] The Federation is formed in 2087.[55] The Earth–Romulan War occurs in the 2100s.[55] First contact with the Klingon Empire in 2151, who demand the return of a group of refugees from the USS Sentry.[55] The first Constitution-class starship is launched in 2188.[55] The USS Enterprise's five-year mission under Captain Kirk lasts from 2207 to 2212.[56] The events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture occur in 2217.[56] The events of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan occur around 2222 (dialogue in the film says it is set "fifteen years" after the Season One episode "Space Seed"). The events of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home occur on September 21, 2222.[56] The Star Fleet Battles game was published in 1979, with a license only covering the original series. It has since diverged into an entirely separate fictional universe, new additions to which continue to be published. It does not tie into the Gregorian calendar, instead using a "Year 1" of the invention of Warp on Earth. Its version of the original series backstory is: Y1 – Warp drive is developed on Earth. Y4 – Federation is formed by Earth, Vulcan, Andoria, Alpha Centauri. Y40-Y46 – Earth–Romulan War. Y71 – Starfleet is formed. Y126 – The Constitution-class is launched (an upgrade from the Republic-class). Y154–159 – The events of the Original Series. See Star Fleet Universe timeline. TNG era and Okuda Press materials for The Next Generation suggested it was set in the 24th century, seventy-eight years after the existing Star Trek, although the exact time frame had not yet been set in stone. The pilot had dialogue stating Data was part of the Starfleet "class of '78".[57] The pilot episode, "Encounter at Farpoint", also has a cameo appearance by Leonard "Bones" McCoy, who is said to be 137. In the last episode of the first season, the year is firmly established by Data as 2364.[57] This marked the first time an explicit future calendar date had been attached to a Star Trek storyline, and allowed fans and writers to extrapolate further dates. For example, the established date implies McCoy was born around 2227, ruling out the Spaceflight Chronology-derived dating of the original series to the early 23rd century (though the dating had already been effectively overruled by Star Trek IV, which primarily takes place in 1986, where Kirk tells Gillian Taylor that he is from the late 23rd Century, though he does not give an exact date). A Star Trek Chronology was published in 1993, written by production staff members Denise Okuda and Michael Okuda.[58] A second edition was issued in 1996.[1] Okuda originally drew up a timeline for internal use by writers, based on his own research and assumptions provided by Richard Arnold. The dates in the Chronology are consistent with the earlier Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual.[45] It gives the following dates: Zephram Cochrane invents warp drive around 2061 (so that the SS Valiant can be constructed and go missing two hundred years before "Where No Man Has Gone Before", dated to 2265; the first edition gives 2061; the second edition moves this to 2063 per Star Trek: First Contact). The Romulan War takes place in the 2150s (about a hundred years before "Balance of Terror"). The Federation is formed in 2161, after the Romulan War, on the basis that "Balance of Terror" says that it was an Earth-Romulan war, not a Federation-Romulan War. The first Constitution-class starship is launched in 2244, followed by the Enterprise in 2245. Kirk's five-year mission lasts from 2264 to 2269, based on the assumption that the original series is set exactly 300 years after its original broadcast. Aired live-action Star Trek episodes are dated from 2266 to 2269. The chronology does not include the events of Star Trek: The Animated Series. This is in keeping also with Gene Roddenberry's concept (discussed in The Making of Star Trek by Roddenberry and Stephen Whitfield) that Star Trek's first season takes place after the mission has been under way for some time. An episode of Voyager, "Q2", aired after the Chronology was published, established that Kirk's five-year mission actually ended in 2270. The events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture take place in 2271 (Kirk has been Chief of Starfleet Operations for two and a half years, according to dialog from Kirk and Decker). The "Q2" dating for Kirk's five-year mission, moves the first film to c. 2273. Numerous sources, including the Chronology, postulate a second five-year mission under now-Admiral Kirk's command, begun soon after the events of the first movie; in part this is to take into account the unproduced revival series Star Trek: Phase II. The events of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock take place in 2285. The Wrath of Khan is a sequel to the episode "Space Seed", which Okuda dates to 2267. In Okuda's timeline there is a gap of eighteen years rather than the fifteen years established in dialog. The film was released in 1982, fifteen years after the episode's broadcast in 1967. The film begins on Kirk's birthday, which is semi-canonically established as March 22, the same as William Shatner's. The events of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home take place in 2286. This places Star Trek III in late 2285, as Kirk states in his log that the Enterprise crew has been on Vulcan for "three months" since bringing Spock home. The events of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier apparently take place soon after the events of the fourth film, as evidenced by Scotty's complaints about repairing the ship after its shakedown cruise, which was depicted at the end of Star Trek IV. Star Trek V would then take place in early 2287. The events of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country take place in 2293, based on McCoy's statement that he had served on the Enterprise for 27 years, and his absence in "Where No Man Has Gone Before". The Kirk-era part of Star Trek Generations is set 78 years before 2371 (established by way of an on-screen caption), thus is set in 2293 and soon after Star Trek VI. The gap between the 1986 film Star Trek IV: the Voyage Home (2286) and the 1987 first season of The Next Generation (2364) is 78 years by this timeline, matching early press materials. A gap of 10 years passed between the broadcast of the last episode of Star Trek: The Original Series and the release of The Motion Picture. The film skirted around the fact the actors had aged, supposing that only two and a half years had passed since the end of Kirk's five-year mission, thus roughly placing it between two and four years after the events of the TV show. For Star Trek II, it was decided to acknowledge the reality of the aging actors, both by setting the film some 15 years after "Space Seed", and by having Kirk worry about getting old.[59] Within The Next Generation era, episodes and films are easier to date. Stardates correspond exactly with seasons, with the first two digits of the stardate representing the season number. Okuda assumes the start of a season is January 1 and the end of the season is December 31.[1] The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager television series, as well as the movies, have roughly followed "real time", and are set around 377 years after their release. Since the Chronology was published, it has been generally adhered-to by the producers of the show. The film Star Trek: First Contact and prequel series Star Trek: Enterprise both revisit the early era. In First Contact, Zephram Cochrane is confirmed as having invented warp drive on Earth, but the date is moved forward slightly to 2063, and it is revealed that Earth's official first contact with an alien species, the Vulcans, took place immediately afterwards as a result of this. The dating of the final season of Star Trek: Voyager has presented controversy. The standard assumption about stardates, as well as the regular correspondence between seasons and in-universe years, would place the entire season in the year 2377; the season begins with stardate 54014.4 and ends with 54973.4. However, the episode "Homestead" features a celebration of the 315th anniversary of Zefram Cochrane's first contact with the Vulcans, which would set the episode on April 5, 2378. The fansite Memory Alpha thus places the final eight episodes of the season ("Human Error" through "Endgame") in 2378, with other sources following suit. Enterprise is set in the 2150s, and ties into the Cochrane backstory. The show uses the Gregorian calendar instead of Stardates, making tracking the dating easier. Its pilot, "Broken Bow", depicts first contact with the Klingons occurring much earlier than the Okuda chronology anticipated (it suggested a date of 2218, based on a line in "Day of the Dove", noting that dialog in "First Contact" makes this problematic – though the actual line in the episode referred to hostilities between the two, and in Enterprise, Human-Klingon relations, while by no means friendly, clearly do not rise to the de facto state of war shown in TOS). It shows the opening of the Romulan war and the start of a coalition between Earth, Vulcan, Andor, and Tellar in the 2150s. The date of the founding year of the Federation, 2161, was revealed in the fifth-season TNG episode "The Outcast," based on an early draft of the Okuda timeline. The final episode of Enterprise, "These Are the Voyages...", is consistent with the establishment of 2161 as the founding year for the Federation. No version of the Chronology or the Encyclopedia has been published since 1999. A 2006 book by Jeff Ayers contains a timeline which attempts to date all of the many Star Trek novels.[60] This timeline has The Motion Picture in 2273, to account for the two-and-a-half-year gap between the end-date of 2270 established in "Q2" and the events of the movie. The official website, StarTrek.com, still gives the date of that movie as 2271.[61] Eugenics Wars and World War III When the original series of Star Trek was produced, the 1990s were several decades away, and so various elements of the backstory to Star Trek are set in that era, particularly the Eugenics Wars. The references to the Eugenics Wars and to a nuclear war in the 21st century are somewhat contradictory. The episode "Space Seed" establishes the Eugenics Wars, and has them lasting from 1992 to 1996. The Eugenics Wars are described as a global conflict in which the progeny of a human genetic engineering project, most notably Khan Noonien Singh, established themselves as supermen and attempted world domination. Spock calls them "the last of your so-called World Wars", and McCoy identifies this with the Eugenics Wars. In the episode "Bread and Circuses", Spock gives a death toll for World War III of 37 million. The episode "The Savage Curtain" features a Colonel Phillip Green, who led a genocidal war in the 21st century. The TNG episode "Encounter at Farpoint" further establishes a "post-atomic horror" on Earth in 2079. However, the movie Star Trek: First Contact put the contact between Vulcans and humans at April 5, 2063. The Star Trek Concordance identifies the "Bread and Circuses" figure as the death toll for a nuclear World War III, in the mid-21st century. Star Trek: First Contact firmly establishes World War III ended, after a nuclear exchange, in 2053, but with a body count of 600 million. The figure of Colonel Green is elaborated on in Star Trek: Enterprise. First Contact also deliberately describes the warring parties in World War III as "factions", not nations per se. The Voyager episode "Future's End" saw the Voyager crew time-travel to Los Angeles in 1996, which, as the Encyclopedia notes, seems entirely unaffected by the Eugenics Wars, which ended that year. The episode acknowledges the issue only by featuring a model of Khan's DY-100-class ship on a 1996 desk.[62] Khan's spaceship is another anomaly for the timeline, which has a variety of long-lost spaceships being launched between 1980 and 2100, with inconsistent levels of technology (caused by the increasing real lifetime and also decreased optimism about the pace of space exploration). A reference in the Deep Space Nine episode "Doctor Bashir, I Presume?" suggests that the Eugenic Wars instead took place in the 22nd century. According to writer Ronald D. Moore, this was not an attempt at a retcon, but a mistake – when writing the episode, he recalled the already questionable "two centuries ago" line from "Space Seed" and forgot that DS9 takes place over 100 years later.[63] Season 4 of Star Trek: Enterprise involves a trilogy of episodes ("Borderland" "Cold Station 12", and "The Augments") related to scientist Doctor Arik Soong, ancestor of Doctor Noonien Soong, and his genetic augmentations of Humans. Numerous historical details of the devastating Eugenics Wars are discussed: the death of 35–37 million people; how Earth's governments could not decide on the fate of the 1,800 genetically enhanced embryos; and how Soong had infiltrated the complex and stolen and raised 19 embryos himself. Soong maintained that he himself and humanity in general had learned the lessons of the Eugenics Wars and should not continue to hide behind those events when there was progress to be made now that the technology had matured and was much more practicable. (The actions of his "children" convince him otherwise, and at the end of "The Augments" Soong declares his interest in cybernetics, beginning the work which would one day bring about Data.) Greg Cox's two-book series The Eugenics Wars: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh develops the idea of the Eugenics Wars in the context of real-life history by representing it as a secret history, and that the truth behind the various civil wars and conflicts in the 1990s was not generally known; Los Angeles, whose appearance in "Future's End" helped bring the war's existence into question, is portrayed as an EW "battlefront", the Rodney King riots being one such calamity. The series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, which first aired in spring 2022, complicates the time line further by retconning certain dating aspects by explicitly dating the Eugenics Wars to the first half of the 21st century, following a second American Civil War and leading up to the full-scale World War III nuclear conflict described in earlier films and episodes. This differs from "Space Seed" asserting that not only did the Eugenics Wars take place in the mid-1990s but dialogue indicates that they were either concurrent with or simply were World War III. Cochrane In the episode "Metamorphosis", it is stated that Zefram Cochrane of Alpha Centauri, the discoverer of the space warp, disappeared 150 years ago, at the age of 87. Based on the 2207 to 2212[56] originally given this would have put Cochrane's disappearance between 2057 and 2062 and his birth between 1970 and 1975. However, Okuda's date of 2267 for that episode, puts Cochrane's disappearance in 2117 and birth in 2030. 1980s spin-off material such as the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology posit that Cochrane was from Alpha Centauri originally, and that a sub-warp ship the UNSS Icarus arrived at Alpha Centauri in 2048 to find he had discovered the theory behind warp drive. The Icarus then relayed its findings back to Earth. The first prototype warp ship was launched in 2055. The Star Trek Chronology does not hold with this theory, and asserts that Cochrane was an Earth native, who moved to Alpha Centauri later in life. (Even in "Metamorphosis", before Cochrane identifies himself to the landing party, Dr. McCoy had taken a tricorder scan and determined him to be human.) The first edition Chronology notes that Cochrane's invention of warp drive must have been at least 200 years before "Where No Man Has Gone Before", and suggests a date of 2061, noting that Cochrane would be 31 that year. The film Star Trek: First Contact prominently features Cochrane's first successful warp flight. The film is set in 2063, two years after the Chronology suggestions, and therefore by the timeline Cochrane is 33. The actor who played Cochrane in that movie, James Cromwell, was 56 at the time of the film's release. The Encyclopedia notes the age issue, and claims that the Cromwell Cochrane had suffered from radiation poisoning, causing his aged appearance. Enterprise pins down Cochrane's disappearance to 2119, making Cochrane instead 31 at the time of First Contact.

It originally aired from September 28, 1987, to May 23, 1994, in syndication, spanning 178 episodes over seven seasons. The third series in the Star Trek franchise, it was inspired by Star Trek: The Original Series. Set in the latter third of the 24th century, when Earth is part of the United Federation of Planets, it follows the adventures of a Starfleet starship, the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D), in its exploration of the Alpha quadrant in the Milky Way galaxy. In the 1980s, Roddenberry—who was responsible for the original Star Trek, Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973–1974), and the first of a series of films—was tasked by Paramount Pictures with creating a new series in the franchise. He decided to set it a century after the events of his original series. The Next Generation featured a new crew: Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Jonathan Frakes as William Riker, Brent Spiner as Data, Michael Dorn as Worf, LeVar Burton as Geordi La Forge, Marina Sirtis as Deanna Troi, Gates McFadden as Dr. Beverly Crusher, Denise Crosby as Tasha Yar, Wil Wheaton as Wesley Crusher, and a new Enterprise. Roddenberry, Maurice Hurley, Rick Berman, Michael Piller, and Jeri Taylor served as executive producers at various times throughout its production. The series was broadcast in first-run syndication with dates and times varying among individual television stations. Stewart's voice-over introduction during each episode's opening credits stated the starship's purpose: Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before. The show was very popular, reaching almost 12 million viewers in its 5th season, with the series finale in 1994 watched by over 30 million viewers.[3][4] Due to its success, Paramount commissioned Rick Berman and Michael Piller to create a fourth series in the franchise, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, which launched in 1993. The characters from The Next Generation returned in four films: Star Trek Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), Star Trek: Insurrection (1998), and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002), and in the television series Star Trek: Picard (2020–2023). The series is also the setting of numerous novels, comic books, and video games. It received many accolades, including 19 Emmy Awards, two Hugo Awards, five Saturn Awards, and a Peabody Award. In 2013, the Writers Guild of America ranked Star Trek: The Next Generation #79 – along with Upstairs, Downstairs, Monty Python's Flying Circus and Alfred Hitchco*ck Presents – on their list of the 101 Best Written TV Series.[5] Production The Star Trek franchise originated in the 1960s, with the Star Trek television show which ran from 1966 to 1969. Star Trek: The Next Generation would mark the return of Star Trek to live-action broadcast television. Background Re-creation of the TNG starship bridge for Star Trek: The Exhibition Due to the original series' popularity in syndication, Paramount Pictures began to consider making a Star Trek film as early as 1972. However, with 1977's release of Star Wars, Paramount decided not to compete in the science fiction movie category and shifted their efforts to a new Star Trek television series. The Original Series actors were approached to reprise their roles; sketches, models, sets and props were created for Star Trek: Phase II until Paramount changed its mind again and decided to create feature films starring the Original Series cast.[6][7] By 1986, 20 years after the original Star Trek's debut on NBC, the franchise's longevity amazed Paramount Pictures executives. Chairman Frank Mancuso Sr. observed that "The shelf life in this business is usually three days. To flourish for 20 years..." He and others described Trek as the studio's "crown jewel", a "priceless asset" that "must not be squandered". The series was the most popular syndicated television program 17 years after cancellation,[8] and the Harve Bennett-produced, Original Series-era Star Trek films did well at the box office.[9] William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy's salary demands for the film Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) caused the studio to plan for a new Star Trek television series. Paramount executives worried that a new series could hurt the demand for the films, but decided that it would increase their appeal on videocassette and cable,[8] and that a series with unknown actors would be more profitable than paying the films' actors' large salaries.[10] Roddenberry initially declined to be involved, but came on board as creator after being unhappy with early conceptual work. Star Trek: The Next Generation was announced on October 10, 1986,[11] and its cast in May 1987.[12] Bridge stations within the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D), as seen at Star Trek: The Experience Paramount executive Rick Berman was assigned to the series at Roddenberry's request. Roddenberry hired a number of Star Trek veterans, including Bob Justman, D. C. Fontana, Eddie Milkis and David Gerrold.[13] Early proposals for the series included one in which some of the original series cast might appear as "elder statesmen",[8] and Roddenberry speculated as late as October 1986 that the new series might not even use a spaceship, as "people might travel by some [other] means" 100 years after the USS Enterprise.[14] A more lasting change was his new belief that workplace interpersonal conflict would no longer exist in the future; thus, the new series did not have parallels to the frequent "crusty banter" between Kirk, Spock, and Leonard McCoy.[10] According to series actor Patrick Stewart, Berman was more receptive than Roddenberry to the series addressing political issues.[15] The series' music theme combined the fanfare from the original series theme by Alexander Courage with Jerry Goldsmith's theme for Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). Some early episodes' plots derived from outlines created for Star Trek: Phase II.[11] Additionally, some sets used in the Original Series-era films were redressed for The Next Generation, and in turn used for subsequent Original Series films.[16] Part of the transporter room set in TNG was used in the original Star Trek's transporter set.[16] Syndication and profitability Despite Star Trek's proven success, NBC and ABC only offered to consider pilot scripts for the new series, and CBS offered to air a miniseries that could become a series if it did well. Paramount executives were offended that the Big Three television networks treated their most appealing and valuable property like any other series. Fox wanted the show to help launch the new network, but wanted it by March 1987, and would only commit to 13 episodes instead of a full season. The unsuccessful negotiations convinced the studio that it could only protect Star Trek with full control.[8][14] Paramount increased and accelerated the show's profitability by choosing to instead broadcast it in first-run syndication[17][10][18]: 123–124 on independent stations (whose numbers had more than tripled since 1980) and Big Three network affiliates.[8] The studio offered the show to local stations for free as barter syndication. The stations sold five minutes of commercial time to local advertisers and Paramount sold the remaining seven minutes to national advertisers. Stations had to commit to purchasing reruns in the future,[17] and only those that aired the new show could purchase the popular reruns of the Original Series.[19]: 222 [20] The studio's strategy succeeded. Most of the 150 stations airing reruns of the original Star Trek wanted to prevent a competitor from airing the new show; ultimately, 210 stations covering 90% of the United States became part of Paramount's informal nationwide network for TNG.[17][21] In early October 1987, more than 50 network affiliates pre-empted their own shows for the series pilot, "Encounter at Farpoint". One station predicted that "Star Trek promises to be one of the most successful programs of the season, network or syndicated".[21] Special effects were by Industrial Light and Magic, a Division of Lucasfilm.[22] The new show indeed performed well; the pilot's ratings were higher than those of many network programs,[21] and ratings remained comparable to network shows by the end of the first season, despite the handicap of each station airing the show on a different day and time, often outside prime time. By the end of the first season, Paramount reportedly received $1 million for advertising per episode, more than the roughly $800,000 fee that networks typically paid for a one-hour show;[17] by 1992, when the budget for each episode had risen to almost $2 million,[23] the studio earned $90 million from advertising annually from first-run episodes, with each 30-second commercial selling for $115,000 to $150,000.[24][25] The show had a 40% return on investment for Paramount, with $30 to $60 million in annual upfront net profit for first-run episodes and another $70 million for stripping rights for each of the about 100 episodes then available, so they did not need overseas sales to be successful.[24] Seasons Star Trek: The Next Generation ran for 178 episodes, over seven seasons, from the fall of 1987 annually to the spring of 1994. At the end of that season, the cast switched over to production of the Star Trek film Generations which was released before the end of 1994.

McFadden then returned for Season 3 as a regular and remained as such for the rest of the series, while Crosby appeared sporadically. The Next Generation was shot on 35 mm film and the budget for each episode was $1.3 million, among the highest for a one-hour television drama.[26][17] While the staff enjoyed the creative freedom gained by independence from a broadcast network's Standards and Practices department, the first season was marked by a "revolving door" of writers, with Gerrold, Fontana and others quitting after disputes with Roddenberry.[19]: 222 [27] Roddenberry "virtually rewrote" the first 15 episodes because of his "dogmatic" intention to depict human interaction "without drawing on the baser motives of greed, lust, and power". Writers found the show's "bible" constricting and ridiculous and could not deal with Roddenberry's ego and treatment of them. It stated, for example, that "regular characters all share a feeling of being part of a band of brothers and sisters. As in the original Star Trek, we invite the audience to share the same feeling of affection for our characters."[10] David Gerrold claimed that at one point, Roddenberry's lawyer came aboard and started taking apart six months of work, including the removal of a gay couple that Roddenberry had promised would be included in the series, which made Gerrold decide to leave the show.[28] Mark Bourne of The DVD Journal wrote of season one: "A typical episode relied on trite plot points, clumsy allegories, dry and stilted dialogue, or characterization that was taking too long to feel relaxed and natural."[29] Other targets of criticism included poor special effects and plots being resolved by the deus ex machina of Wesley Crusher saving the ship.[30][31] Patrick Stewart's acting won praise, and critics noted that characters were given greater potential for development than those of the original series.[29][30] Actors and producers were unsure whether Trekkies loyal to the original show would accept the new one but one critic stated as early as October 1987 that The Next Generation, not the movies or the original show, "is the real Star Trek now".[32][33][34] While the events of most episodes of season one were self-contained, many developments important to the show occurred during the season. The recurring nemesis Q was introduced in the pilot, the alien Ferengi had their sentinel showing in "The Last Outpost", the holodeck was introduced and the romantic backstory between William Riker and Deanna Troi was investigated. "The Naked Now", one of the few episodes that depicted Roddenberry's fascination (as seen in the show's bible) with sex in the future, became a cast favorite.[10] Later episodes in the season set the stage for serial plots. The episode "Datalore" introduced Data's evil twin brother Lore, who made several more appearances. "Coming of Age" deals with Wesley Crusher's efforts to get into Starfleet Academy while also hinting at the threat to Starfleet later faced in "Conspiracy". "Heart of Glory" explored Worf's character, Klingon culture and the uneasy truce between the Federation and the Klingon Empire, three themes that played major roles in later episodes. Tasha Yar left the show in "Skin of Evil", becoming the first regular Star Trek character to die permanently (although the character was seen again in two later episodes) in either series or film. The season finale, "The Neutral Zone", established the presence of two of TNG's most enduring villains: the Romulans, making their first appearance since the Original Series, and through foreshadowing, the Borg. The premiere became the first television episode to be nominated for a Hugo Award since 1972. Six of the season's episodes were each nominated for an Emmy Award. "11001001" won for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series, "The Big Goodbye" won for Outstanding Costume Design for a Series, and "Conspiracy" won for Outstanding Achievement in Makeup for a Series.[11] "The Big Goodbye" also won a Peabody Award, the first syndicated program[17] and only Star Trek episode to do so. The top two episodes for Nielsen ratings were "Encounter at Farpoint" with 15.7, and "Justice" with 12.7.[35] The season ran from 1987 to 1988. Season 2 (1988–1989) Main article: Star Trek: The Next Generation (season 2) LeVar Burton starred as Geordi La Forge in all seven seasons airing between 1987 and 1994, and four TNG movies premiering between 1994 and 2002. In the second season, the character became Chief Engineer aboard the Enterprise D, remaining so for the rest of the series. The series underwent significant changes during its second season. Beverly Crusher was replaced as Chief Medical Officer by Katherine Pulaski, played by Diana Muldaur, who had been a guest star in "Return to Tomorrow" and "Is There in Truth No Beauty?", two episodes from the original Star Trek series. The ship's recreational area, Ten-Forward, and its mysterious bartender/advisor, Guinan, played by Whoopi Goldberg, appeared for the first time. Owing to the 1988 Writers Guild of America strike, the number of episodes produced was cut from 26 to 22, and the start of the season was delayed. Because of the strike, the opening episode, "The Child", was based on a script originally written for Star Trek: Phase II, while the season finale, "Shades of Gray", was a clip show. Nevertheless, season two as a whole was widely regarded as significantly better than season one.[36] Benefiting from Paramount's commitment to a multiyear run and free from network interference due to syndication, Roddenberry found writers who could work within his guidelines and create drama from the cast's interaction with the rest of the universe.[10] The plots became more sophisticated and began to mix drama with comic relief. Its focus on character development received special praise.[36] Co-executive producer Maurice Hurley has stated that his primary goal for the season was to plan and execute season-long story arcs and character arcs.[37] Hurley wrote the acclaimed episode "Q Who", which featured the first on-screen appearance of the Borg. Season two focused on developing the character Data, and two episodes from the season, "Elementary, Dear Data" and "The Measure of a Man", featured him prominently.[38] Miles O'Brien also became a more prominent character during the second season, while Geordi La Forge took the position of Chief Engineer. Klingon issues continued to be explored in episodes such as "A Matter of Honor" and "The Emissary", which introduced Worf's former lover K'Ehleyr.[39] Five second-season episodes were nominated for six Emmy Awards, and "Q Who" won for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Drama Series.[11] The season ran from 1988 to 1989. Season 2 marked the addition of the "Ten Forward" set at Paramount, located at Stage 8 at the studios.[40] The set was designed by Herman Zimmerman, and in the show was a place for the crew to relax, hang out together, and eat or have drinks.[40] Inside, it featured a bar looking out on large windows, and outside it featured a star field, or with use of green-screen special effects, other scenes.[40] Season 3 (1989–1990) Main article: Star Trek: The Next Generation (season 3) Before the production of the third season in the summer of 1989, some personnel changes were made. Head writer Maurice Hurley was let go and Michael Piller took over for the rest of the series. Creator and executive producer Gene Roddenberry took less of an active role due to his declining health. Roddenberry gave Piller and Berman the executive producer jobs, and they remained in that position for the rest of the series' run, with Berman overseeing the production as a whole and Piller being in charge of the creative direction of the show and the writing room. McFadden returned to the cast as Doctor Crusher, replacing Muldaur, who had remained a guest star throughout the second season. An additional change was the inclusion of the fanfare that was added to the opening credits of the second season, to the end of the closing credits. Ronald D. Moore joined the show after submitting a spec script that became "The Bonding". He became the franchise's "Klingon guru",[11] meaning that he wrote most TNG episodes dealing with the Klingon Empire (though he wrote some Romulan stories, as well, such as "The Defector"). Writer/producer Ira Steven Behr also joined the show in its third season. Though his tenure with TNG lasted only one year, he later went on to be a writer and showrunner of spin-off series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.[41] Six third-season episodes were nominated for eight Emmys. "Yesterday's Enterprise" won for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series and "Sins of the Father" won for Best Art Direction for a Series.[11] After a chiropractor warned that the cast members risked permanent skeletal injury, new two-piece wool uniforms replaced the first two seasons' extremely tight spandex uniforms.[42] The season finale, the critically acclaimed episode "The Best of Both Worlds", was the first season-ending cliffhanger, a tradition that continued throughout the remainder of the series. The season ran from 1989 to 1990. The Season 3 finale and bridge to Season 4, "The Best of Both Worlds" went on to be one of the most acclaimed Star Trek episodes noted by TV Guide's "100 Most Memorable Moments in TV History", ranking 70th out of 100 in March 2001.[43] It has routinely been ranked among the top of all Star Trek franchise episodes.[44][45] Season 4 (1990–1991) Main article: Star Trek: The Next Generation (season 4) Wil Wheaton plays Wesley Crusher, Beverly Crusher's son, a regular character in the first four seasons, appearing sporadically in the last three. Brannon Braga and Jeri Taylor joined the show in its fourth season. The fourth season surpassed the Original Series in series length with the production of TNG's 80th episode, "Legacy". A new alien race, the Cardassians, made their first appearance in "The Wounded". They later were heavily featured in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The season finale, "Redemption", was the 100th episode, and the cast and crew (including creator Gene Roddenberry) celebrated the historic milestone on the bridge set. Footage of this was seen in the Star Trek 25th-anniversary special hosted by William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, which aired later in the year. Seven fourth-season episodes were nominated for eight Emmys. "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II" won for both Outstanding Sound Editing in a Series and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Series.[11] Character Wesley Crusher leaves the series in season four to go to Starfleet Academy. "Family" is the only TNG episode where Data does not appear on-screen. The season ran from 1990 to 1991. Season 5 (1991–1992) Main article: Star Trek: The Next Generation (season 5) The fifth season's seventh episode, "Unification", opened with a dedication to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry (though the prior episode, "The Game", aired four days after his death). Roddenberry, though he had recently died, continued to be credited as executive producer for the rest of the season. The cast and crew learned of his death during the production of "Hero Worship", a later season-five episode. Seven fifth-season episodes were nominated for eight Emmys. "Cost of Living" won for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Costume Design for a Series and Outstanding Individual Achievement in Makeup for a Series, and "A Matter of Time" and "Conundrum" tied for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Special Visual Effects. In addition, "The Inner Light" became the first television episode since the 1968 original series Star Trek episode "The City on the Edge of Forever" to win a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation.[11] Season five had the introduction of a jacket for Picard, worn periodically throughout the rest of the show's run. The observation lounge set was altered with the removal of the gold model starships across the interior wall and the addition of lighting beneath the windows. Recurring character Ensign Ro Laren was introduced in the fifth season. The season ran from 1991 to 1992. Season 6 (1992–1993) Main article: Star Trek: The Next Generation (season 6) Jemison Hawking NASA astronaut Mae Jemison (left) plays an Enterprise officer in the sixth-season episode "Second Chances"; and world renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking plays a holographic simulated version of himself in the sixth-season finale cliffhanger "Descent (Part I)". With the creation of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Rick Berman and Michael Piller's time were split between The Next Generation and the new show. Three sixth-season episodes were nominated for Emmys. "Time's Arrow, Part II" won for both Outstanding Individual Achievement in Costume Design for a Series and Outstanding Individual Achievement in Hairstyling for a Series, and "A Fistful of Datas" won for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Sound Mixing for a Drama Series.[11] The highest Nielsen-rated episode of Season 6 was "Relics", with a rating of 13.9.[46] The episode featured Original Series character Scotty played by James Doohan. Additionally, NASA astronaut Mae Jemison played Lt. Palmer in "Second Chances".[47][48] The season 6 finale cliffhanger includes a cameo by Stephen Hawking (Part I of "Descent"). The season ran from 1992 to 1993. Season 7 (1993–1994) Main article: Star Trek: The Next Generation (season 7) The seventh season was The Next Generation's last, running from 1993 to 1994. The penultimate episode, "Preemptive Strike", concluded the plot line for the recurring character Ensign Ro Laren and introduced themes that continued in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager. The Next Generation series finale, "All Good Things...", was a double-length episode (separated into two parts for reruns) that aired the week of May 19, 1994, revisiting the events of the pilot and providing a bookend to the series. Toronto's SkyDome played host to a massive event for the series finale. Thousands of people packed the stadium to watch the final episode on the stadium's JumboTron. Five seventh-season episodes were nominated for nine Emmys, and the series as a whole was the first syndicated television series nominated for Outstanding Drama Series. To this day, The Next Generation is the only syndicated drama to be nominated in this category. "All Good Things..." won for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Special Visual Effects, and "Genesis" won for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Sound Mixing for a Drama Series. "All Good Things..." also won the second of the series' two Hugo Awards.[11] "All Good Things..." also achieved the highest Nielsen rating for all of Season 7, with a rating of 17.4.[49] Legacy Although the cast members were contracted for eight seasons,[50] Paramount ended The Next Generation after seven, which disappointed and puzzled some of the actors, and was an unusual decision for a successful television show. Paramount then made films using the cast, which it believed would be less successful if the show were still on television.[51] An eighth season also would likely have reduced the show's profitability due to higher cast salaries and a lower price per episode when sold as strip programming.[50] The show's strong ratings continued to the end; the 1994 series finale was ranked number two among all shows that week, between hits Home Improvement and Seinfeld,[50] and was watched by over 30 million viewers.[3] TNG was the most-watched Star Trek show, with a peak audience of 11.5 million during its fifth season prior to the launch of DS9. Between 1988 and 1992 it picked up half a million to a million additional viewers per year.[4] Adjusted Nielsen ratings for Star Trek TV shows:[4] Fall 1987 – Spring 1988: 8.55 Million TNG S1 Fall 1988 – Spring 1989: 9.14 Million TNG S2 Fall 1989 – Spring 1990: 9.77 Million TNG S3 Fall 1990 – Spring 1991: 10.58 Million TNG S4 Fall 1991 – Spring 1992: 11.50 Million TNG S5 Fall 1992 – Spring 1993: 10.83 Million TNG S6 (DS9 S1 Debuted in Spring 1993) Fall 1993 – Spring 1994: 9.78 Million TNG S7 + DS9 S2 Fall 1994 – Spring 1995: 7.05 Million DS9 S3 + VOY S1 Fall 1995 – Spring 1996: 6.42 Million DS9 S4 + VOY S2 Fall 1996 – Spring 1997: 5.03 Million DS9 S5 + VOY S3 Fall 1997 – Spring 1998: 4.53 Million DS9 S6 + VOY S4 Fall 1998 – Spring 1999: 4.00 Million DS9 S7 + VOY S5 (Voyager ended after two more seasons) Science fiction authors noted how Star Trek: The Next Generation influenced their careers.[52] Episodes Main article: List of Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes Star Trek: The Next Generation aired for seven seasons beginning on September 28, 1987 and ending on May 23, 1994. The series begins with the crew of the Enterprise-D put on trial by an omnipotent being known as Q, who became a recurring character. The god-like entity threatens the extinction of humanity for being a race of savages, forcing them to solve a mystery at nearby Farpoint Station to prove their worthiness to be spared. After successfully solving the mystery and avoiding disaster, the crew departs on its mission to explore strange new worlds. Subsequent stories focus on the discovery of new life and sociological and political relationships with alien cultures, as well as exploring the human condition. Several new species are introduced as recurring antagonists, including the Ferengi, the Cardassians, and the Borg. Throughout their adventures, Picard and his crew are often forced to face and live with the consequences of difficult choices. The series ended in its seventh season with a two-part episode "All Good Things...", which brought the events of the series full circle to the original confrontation with Q. An interstellar anomaly that threatens all life in the universe forces Picard to leap from his present, past, and future to combat the threat. Picard was successfully able to show to Q that humanity could think outside of the confines of perception and theorize on new possibilities while still being prepared to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the greater good. The series ended with the crew of the Enterprise portrayed as feeling more like a family and paved the way for four consecutive motion pictures that continued the theme and mission of the series.

(Two-part episode) Cast Main article: List of Star Trek: The Next Generation cast members Patrick Stewart plays Captain Picard throughout the series, as well as in all four films and as the central character in Star Trek: Picard. Brent Spiner stars as the android Data on the show and in all four movies, and also plays Data's "father" (i.e. manufacturer) and "brother". Main Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard is the commanding officer of the USS Enterprise-D. Stewart also played the character in the pilot episode of Deep Space Nine, all four TNG theater films, and in the eponymously titled latest series Star Trek: Picard Jonathan Frakes as Commander William T. Riker is the ship's first officer. The Riker character was influenced by concepts for first officer Willard Decker in the Star Trek: Phase II television series.[11] Decker's romantic history with helmsman Ilia was mirrored in The Next Generation in the relationship between Riker and Deanna Troi.[11] Riker also appears in an episode each of Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise, and later reprised the role in Star Trek: Picard and in the animated Star Trek: Lower Decks. In addition to William Riker, Frakes played William's transporter-created double, Thomas, in one episode each of The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine LeVar Burton as Lieutenant (JG)/Lieutenant/Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge was initially the ship's helmsman, but the character became chief engineer beginning in the second season. Burton also played the character in an episode of Voyager and the third season of Star Trek: Picard Denise Crosby as Lieutenant Tasha Yar (season 1; guest: seasons 3 & 7) is the chief of security and tactical officer. Crosby left the series near the end of the first season, and the Yar character was killed. Yar returns in alternate timelines in the award-winning episode "Yesterday's Enterprise" and the series finale, "All Good Things...". Crosby also played Commander Sela, Yar's half-Romulan daughter Michael Dorn as Lieutenant (JG)/Lieutenant Worf is a Klingon. Worf initially appears as a junior officer fulfilling several roles on the bridge. When Denise Crosby left near the end of the first season, the Worf character succeeded Lieutenant Yar as the ship's chief of security and tactical officer. Dorn reprised the role as a regular in seasons four through seven of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and the third season of Star Trek: Picard. He also played another Klingon, Worf's grandfather and namesake, in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. With 284 on-screen appearances,[53] Dorn has the most appearances of any actor in the Star Trek franchise[54] Gates McFadden as Doctor Beverly Crusher (Seasons 1 & 3–7) is the Enterprise's chief medical officer. As a fully certified bridge officer, Dr. Crusher had the ability to command the Enterprise if circ*mstances required her to do so. She also, on occasion, commanded night-watch shifts on the ship's main bridge to stay on top of starship operations. McFadden was fired after the first season, but was rehired for the third season[55] and remained for the remainder of the series. Her absence in the second season was explained by her transfer to Starfleet Medical. She returned to the role for the third season of Star Trek: Picard Marina Sirtis as Lieutenant Commander/Commander Deanna Troi is the half-human, half-Betazoid ship's counselor. Starting in the season seven episode "Thine Own Self", Counselor Troi, having taken and completed the bridge-officer's test, is later promoted to the rank of commander, which allowed her to take command of the ship, and also perform bridge duties other than those of a ship's counselor. The character's relationship with first officer Riker was a carry-over from character ideas developed for Phase II.[11] Troi also appeared in later episodes of Voyager, in the finale of Enterprise, and in the first and third seasons of Star Trek: Picard Brent Spiner as Lieutenant Commander Data; an android who serves as second officer and operations officer. Data's "outsider's" perspective on humanity served a similar narrative purpose as Spock's in the original Star Trek.[11] Spiner also played his "brother", Lore, and his creator, Noonien Soong. In Enterprise, Spiner played Noonien's ancestor, Arik, and contributed a brief voiceover (heard over the Enterprise-D's intercom) in the Enterprise finale.

He becomes an acting ensign, and later receives a field commission to ensign, before attending Starfleet Academy.

Star Trek had a number of story arcs within the larger story, and oftentimes different episodes contributed to two or more different story or character arcs. Some are epitomized by the aliens the characters interact with, for example, TNG introduced the Borg and the Cardassians. The Klingons and Romulans had been introduced in The Original Series (1966–1969); however, the Klingons were somewhat rebooted with a "turtle-head" look, although a retcon was given to explain this in an Enterprise episode. Other story arcs focus on certain peripheral characters such as Q, Ro Laren or characters projected on the Holodeck. Certain episodes go deeper into the Klingon alien saga, which are famous for having an actual Klingon language made for them in the Star Trek universe. The Klingon stories usually involve Worf, but not all Worf-centric shows are focused on Klingons. The Duras sisters, a Klingon duo named Lursa and B'Etor, were introduced on TNG in the 1991 episode "Redemption". They later appeared in the film Generations. One of the science fiction technologies featured in Star Trek: The Next Generation was an artificial reality machine called the "Holodeck", and several award-winning episodes featured plots centering on the peculiarities of this device.[56] Some episodes focused on malfunctions in the holodeck, and in one case how a crew member became addicted to the environment created by the technology.[56] The dangers of technology that allows illusion is one of ongoing themes of Star Trek going back to the 1st pilot, "The Cage" where aliens' power of illusion to create an artificial reality is explored.[57] One of the plots is whether a character will confront a reality or retreat to a world of fantasy.[58] Several episodes in the show also deal with the concept of time, including narrative structures around time travel, temporal loops, parallel universes, alternate universes, and more. In some episodes, the character Q is responsible for the shifts in time. Reception See also: List of awards and nominations received by Star Trek: The Next Generation Patrick Stewart speaks at Destination Star Trek London with other actors of the franchise. (From L to R: Avery Brooks of DS9, Kate Mulgrew of Voyager, Stewart, and William Shatner of TOS) The Next Generation's average of 20 million viewers often exceeded both existing syndication successes such as Wheel of Fortune and network hits including Cheers and L.A. Law. Benefiting in part from many stations' decision to air each new episode twice in a week, it consistently ranked in the top ten among hour-long dramas, and networks could not prevent affiliates from preempting their shows with The Next Generation or other dramas that imitated its syndication strategy.[23][18]: 124 Star Trek: The Next Generation received 18 Emmy Awards and, in its seventh season, became the first and only syndicated television show to be nominated for the Emmy for Best Dramatic Series. It was nominated for three Hugo Awards and won two. The first-season episode "The Big Goodbye" also won the Peabody Award for excellence in television programming. In 1997, the episode "The Best of Both Worlds, Part I" was ranked No. 70 on TV Guide's 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time.[59] In 2002, Star Trek: The Next Generation was ranked #46 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time list,[60] and in 2008, was ranked No. 37 on Empire's list of the 50 greatest television shows.[61] On October 7, 2006, one of the three original filming models of the USS Enterprise-D used on the show sold at a Christie's auction for US$576,000, making it the highest-selling item at the event.[62] The buyer of the model was Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, owner of the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle. The model is on display within the Science Fiction Museum. In 2012, Entertainment Weekly listed the show at No. 7 in the "25 Best Cult TV Shows from the Past 25 Years", saying, "The original Star Trek was cult TV before cult TV was even a thing, but its younger, sleeker offspring brought, yes, a new generation into the Trekker fold, and reignited the promise of sci-fi on television."[63] Although TNG did develop a cult following, it was noted for its prime-time general audience viewership also.[4] The flute from "The Inner Light" was valued at a maximum of US$1,000 when it went to auction in late 2006, but was sold for over $40,000; in this case the auctioneers admitted they had underestimated the appeal of the prop.[64][65] In the days leading up to the auction, Denise Okuda, former Star Trek scenic artist and video supervisor, as well as co-writer of the auction catalog, said: "That's the item people say they really have to have, because it's so iconic to a much-beloved episode."[66] DS9's "The Emissary", which came out half-way through season 6 of TNG achieved a Nielsen rating of 18.8.[67] Star Trek's ratings went into a steady decline starting with Season 6 of TNG, and the second to last episode of DS9 achieved a Nielsen rating of 3.9.[68] In 2017, Vulture ranked Star Trek: The Next Generation the second best live-action Star Trek television show.[69] In 2019, Popular Mechanics ranked Star Trek: The Next Generation the third best science fiction television show ever.[70] In 2021, Empire magazine ranked it the 17th greatest television show ever.[71] They point out it was hard to follow in the reputation of the original series, but the series found its footing and paved the way for more spin-offs.[71] International broadcasts The Next Generation was first broadcast on UK terrestrial TV on BBC2 with the first episode shown on 26 September 1990.[72] The sequence remained the same as the US releases for the first four episodes,[73] but after this they were somewhat shuffled about.[74] Games Screenshot of the 1995 video game, Star Trek: The Next Generation – A Final Unity Video games based on The Next Generation TV series, movies, and characters include: Star Trek: The Next Generation (1993) (NES / Game Boy) Star Trek: The Next Generation: Future's Past (1993), for the SNES Star Trek: The Next Generation: Echoes from the Past (1993) a port of Future's Past for the Sega Genesis Star Trek Generations: Beyond the Nexus (1994), for Nintendo Game Boy or Sega Game Gear Star Trek: The Next Generation – A Final Unity (1995), for MS-DOS or Macintosh. A Final Unity sold 500,000 copies by 1996 [75] and was noted in the U.K. PC Gamer Magazine for how it "translates the atmosphere and 'feel' of The Next Generation almost perfectly"[76] Star Trek: Borg (1996), includes live action segments directed by James L.

For example, in Star Trek: Armada voice actors from The Next Generation returned to their characters in the game including Patrick Stewart reprising the roles of Jean-Luc Picard and Locutus, Michael Dorn voiced Worf, Denise Crosby reprised Sela, and J. G. Hertzler[78] voiced Chancellor Martok. Several other voice actors who had been previously unaffiliated with Star Trek also voiced characters in the game, among them was Richard Penn[79] Star Trek: Armada II was set in the Star Trek: The Next Generation era of the Star Trek universe[77] Star Trek: Hidden Evil (1999) included voice acting by Brent Spiner as Data and Patrick Stewart as Picard,[80] and was a follow-up to the ninth Star Trek film Star Trek: Insurrection[80] Board Games: Star Trek: The Next Generation Interactive VCR Board Game This game is played with television with VCR player, and also a game board[81] Star Trek: The Next Generation, a 1993 board game[82] Star Trek: Five-Year Mission (also included TOS) Pinball: Star Trek: The Next Generation (pinball) Further information: List of Star Trek games (includes other series) Films Main article: Star Trek (film series) Four films feature the characters of the series: Star Trek Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), Star Trek: Insurrection (1998), and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002). An ancestor of Worf, also played by Dorn, appeared in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.[83] I think it was kind of an honor they had my character be sort of the link between the two series. It was wonderful to be working with the other cast (from the original Star Trek series). It was kind of a fantasy because who would have thought when I was watching the original show that I'd be working in the movie? Beyond that, it's like professionalism takes over and you just kind of do the best you can and not make yourself look bad. — Dorn on his role in The Undiscovered Country[83] Film U.S. release date Director(s) Screenwriter(s) Story by Producer(s) Star Trek Generations November 18, 1994 David Carson Ronald D.

The entire series was gradually released on VHS over the next few years during the remainder of the show's run and after the show had ended. The VHS for TNG were available on mail-order, with usually two episodes per cassette. Beta Some episodes had releases on the tape videocassette format Betamax.[84] Releases of all Betamax publications including those of the Star Trek: The Next Generation was halted in the early 1990s.[85] LaserDisc Paramount published all episodes on the LaserDisc format from October 1991 using an extended release schedule that concluded in May 1999. Each disc featured two episodes with Closed Captions, Digital Audio, and CX encoding. Also published were four themed "collections", or boxed sets, of related episodes. These included The Borg Collective, The Q Continuum, Worf: Return to Grace, and The Captains Collection.[86] For example, the "Q Continuum" collection of LaserDisc featured 4 episodes.[87] The collection was released on July 30, 1997 and was published by Paramount Home Video; it retailed for US$99.98.[87] The set included the 2-part "Encounter at Farpoint", "Hide & Q", "Q Who?", and "Deja Q" on 12 inch optical discs in NTSC format with a total runtime of 230 minutes, with stereo sound.[87] The collection came in a Tri-Fold jacket that also included a letter from actor Jon De Lancie (Q).[87] There was a production error with episode 166, "Sub Rosa", where a faulty master tape was used that was missing 4½ minutes of footage. Though a new master copy of the episode was obtained, no corrected pressing of this disc was issued.[86] Star Trek: The Next Generation was also released on LaserDisc in the non-US markets Japan and Europe. In Japan, all episodes were released in a series of 14 boxed sets (two boxed sets per season), and as with the US releases were in the NTSC format and ordered by production code. The European laserdiscs were released in the PAL format and included the ten two-part telemovies as well as a disc featuring the episodes Yesterday's Enterprise and Cause And Effect. The pilot episode, Encounter At Farpoint, was also included in a boxed set called Star Trek: The Pilots featuring the pilot episodes from Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager. DVD The first season of the series was released on DVD in March 2002. Throughout the year the next six seasons were released at various times on DVD, with the seventh season being released in December 2002. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the series, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment released Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Complete Series on October 2, 2007. The DVD box set contains 49 discs. Between March 2006 and September 2008, "Fan Collective" editions were released containing select episodes of The Next Generation (and The Original Series, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager) based on various themes. The individual episodes were chosen by fans voting on StarTrek.com. In total, six "Fan Collectives" were produced, along with a boxed set containing the first five collectives. In April 2013 all seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation were re-released in new packaging featuring a silhouette of a different cast member on each box. However, the discs contained the identical content that was previously released in 2002. Another full DVD set was released in 2020 but it also contains the same content from the previous 2002 release. Blu-ray CBS announced on September 28, 2011, in celebration of the series' twenty-fifth anniversary, that Star Trek: The Next Generation would be completely remastered in 1080p high definition from the original 35mm film negatives. The original show was edited and post-processed in standard definition for broadcast, as were all the show's visual effects (e.g. all exterior shots of the Enterprise, phaser fire, or beaming fade-ins and -outs). For the remaster almost 25,000 reels of original film stock were rescanned and reedited, and all visual effects were digitally recomposed from original large-format negatives and newly created CGI shots. The release was accompanied by 7.1 DTS Master Audio. Michael Okuda believes this is the largest film restoration project ever attempted.[88] The process of making high-definition versions of the series was an extraordinarily labor-intensive ordeal that cost Paramount Pictures over $12 million. The project was a financial failure and resulted in Paramount deciding very firmly against giving Deep Space Nine and Voyager the same treatment.[89] An initial disc featuring the episodes "Encounter at Farpoint", "Sins of the Father", and "The Inner Light" was released on January 31, 2012 under the label "The Next Level". The six-disc first season set was released on July 24, 2012.[90] The remaining seasons were released periodically thereafter, culminating in the release of the seventh season on December 2, 2014. Season 1 sold 95,000 units in its launch week in 2012.[91] The Blu-ray sets include many special features and videos, such as a 1988 episode of Reading Rainbow where LeVar Burton (who plays Geordi on TNG) documents the making of a Star Trek: The Next Generation episode.[92] The entire re-mastered series is available on Blu-ray as individual seasons, and as a 41-disc box set titled The Full Journey. Eventually, all remastered episodes became available for television syndication and digital distribution.[93] Season Release date[94] Special features Season 1 July 24, 2012 Documentaries "Energized!"

Streaming and syndication Star Trek: The Next Generation is available on various streaming video services, including Amazon Prime Video, Apple iTunes, and Paramount+, under various qualities and terms. The Netflix version included some additional special effect improvements.[100] One service stated that by 2017 the most re-watched episodes of Star Trek:The Next Generation among the most re-watched Star Trek franchise shows in their offerings, were "The Best of Both Worlds, Part I", "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II", "Q Who", and "Clues".[101] Streaming offerings were noted for binge watching, including Star Trek: The Next Generation 178 episodes among the overall 726 episodes and 12 movies that had been released prior to Star Trek: Discovery in late 2017.[102] As of the late 2010s, Star Trek: The Next Generation is syndicated to air in the United States on the cable network BBC America and the broadcast channel network Heroes & Icons.[103] Star Trek : The Next Generation episodes have been featured in TV specials and marathons.[104] For example, for Saint Patrick's Day BBC America planned a marathon with the episodes including "The Best of Both Worlds", "Time's Arrow", "Chain of Command", "Tapestry", and the series finale, "All Good Things...".[104] On the launch of Paramount+ streaming service, on March 4, 2021, a free Star Trek marathon was presented, featuring the pilots of the various Star Trek television series, including TNG.[105] The marathon started at 7 am PT/10 am ET and streamed on the YouTube internet video platform and ran all day.[105] Spin-offs and the franchise Star Trek: The Next Generation spawned different media set in its universe, which was primarily the 2370s but set in the same universe as first Star Trek TV shows of the 1960s. This included the aforementioned films, computer games, board games, theme parks, etc. In the 2010s there were rumors of a Captain Worf spin-off, the Klingon bridge officer that debuted on TNG and was also featured in the TNG spin-off show Deep Space Nine.[106] A documentary called Journey's End: The Saga of Star Trek – The Next Generation was released in 1994.[107] Directed by Donald R. Beck, it featured the cast of the show and explored the last season and the then upcoming film Generations.[107] Novels Star Trek: The Next Generation-era novels (examples): Series Star Trek: The Q Continuum by Greg Cox Q-Space Q-Zone Q-Strike Star Trek: The Lost Era edited by Mario Palmieri The Sundered by Michael A.

(2005) Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis returned to their The Next Generation roles for the series finale of Enterprise, as Commander Riker and Counselor Troi respectively. In 2005, the last episode of Star Trek: Enterprise called "These Are the Voyages..." (S4E22) featured a holodeck simulation on the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) from Star Trek: The Next Generation during the events of the episode "The Pegasus" and the return of Commander William Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Counselor Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis).[108] It was written by Berman and Braga, who noted "... this was a very cool episode because it has a great concept driving it".[109] Star Trek: Enterprise was the TV show launched following the conclusion of Star Trek: Voyager and was set 100 years before TOS and 200 years before TNG, in addition to including some soft reboot elements with an all new cast. Some episodes connected to TNG directly including guest stars by Brent Spiner and connections to the events in TNG's fictional universe. The three-episode story arc consisting of "Borderland", "Cold Station 12", and "The Augments", with a Soong ancestor portrayed by The Next Generation regular Brent Spiner provides some backstory to Data's origins. Also, the Enterprise episode "Affliction" helps explain the smooth-headed Klingons that sometimes appeared, a retcon that helped explain this varying presentation between TOS, TNG, and the films. Star Trek would not return to television as a show for over 12 years, until the debut of Star Trek: Discovery initially on CBS but thereafter exclusively available on the Internet service CBS All Access (Netflix internationally) at that time. The film franchise was rebooted in 2009, essentially a grafted on fork off of the timeline known in Star Trek: The Next Generation. That movie contains an event from the TNG timeline, which is the destruction of Romulus and the flight of Spock's special ship to the time fork. In the Star Trek franchise, witnessing the events of time shenanigans is a common plot device. The return of Picard Main article: Star Trek: Picard On August 4, 2018, Patrick Stewart stated on social media that he would return to the role of Jean-Luc Picard in a project with CBS All Access.[110] Stewart wrote, "I will always be very proud to have been a part of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002, I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its natural course. It is, therefore, an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over. "During these past years, it has been humbling to hear stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many to follow in his footsteps, pursuing science, exploration and leadership. I feel I'm ready to return to him for the same reason – to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times. I look forward to working with our brilliant creative team as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life once more." In January 2019, the producer said that the Picard series will answer questions about what happened to Captain Picard in the 20 years after Star Trek: Nemesis.[111] Context This infographic shows the first-run production timeline of various Star Trek franchise shows and films, including Star Trek: The Next Generation.
