"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 civilisations, to boldly go where no one has gone before."
In this highly successful spin-off to the original Star Trek, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Galaxy-Class starship, the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D, set out to explore the final frontier. Along the way, they make first contact with myriad different species and solve reconflicts among those societies with whom they were already familiar, most notably the Klingon Empire.
Star Trek: The Next Generation is known as the series which set the Star Trek franchise in motion, with seven magnificent seasons all of which enjoyed high ratings. In 1994, the series received an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Drama Series. To date, no other syndicated series has accomplished this feat. The cast went on to appear in four films, produced between 1994 and 2002: Star Trek Generations, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Insurrection and Star Trek Nemesis.
Capt. Picard finds he is awakening in different time periods; traveling back and forth through his past and his yet unknown future. Q appears to be involved, but only in a observer kind of role. There is something Picard must do during these time slips, and if he fails, all of humanity will cease to ever have ever existed.
