SEATTLE -- It's been 50 years since the Starship Enterprise began its five-year mission to boldly go where no man had gone before, and Seattle's EMP Museum is marking the anniversary with an exhibition honouring "Star Trek" and its influence on pop culture and society....

So, according to this schmuck on facebook any Star Trek TV show that stars anyone who is already established in the nerdverse would not be a Star Trek show.


This is seriously the most stupidest comment i have seen all day on any social media site

That doesn't even make sense. Like declaring 'i only liked that movie as it had good looking actors in it.' stupid. Not worth a rebuttal

Over the past several days, a certain Star Trek: The Next Generation prose piece has ensnared the popular imagination the world over. It's a story that's been recycled since time immemorial, due to its sheer cross-cultural thematic resonance.

The Next Generation TNG  - 
 
 
On this day:
At 23rd May of 1994, "Star Trek: The Next Generation" concludes its seven-year run with the series finale, 'All Good Things...' The two-hour finale was broadcast at 6 p.m. on most affiliates, rather than as part of the prime time lineup.

'Star Trek: The Next Generation' (often abbreviated as TNG) is an American science fiction television series created by Gene Roddenberry twenty-one years after the original Star Trek series debuted in 1966. Roddenberry, Maurice Hurley, Rick Berman and Michael Piller served as executive producers at different times throughout the production. The series (1987–94) was broadcast in first-run syndication with dates and times varying among individual television stations.

With the commercial success of the original Star Trek movies, and its continued rise as a pop culture phenomenon, along with the increased popularity of science fiction overall, the idea of resurrecting a Star trek TV series was a logical step to take. The concept of the Next generation was met with much skepticism though.

The original Trek was a hard act to follow. Fortunately, with the Next Generation we did not get a re-hash of the original series, but a logical continuation of the original. This series would survive a rocky first season, and began to come into its own near the end of the second. What comes after is some of the best science fiction ever made, television or otherwise, and to many it eclipses the original series.

The strength of the show are the characters, from Cpt. Picard to Commander Warf to Data to Chief O'Brien. We get more than just Kirk, Spock, Bones and Scotty, we get serious attention paid to 8 major characters and a bevy of minor ones throughout the series run.

These characters drive the series and their backstories are often the basis for many of the stories. We have grand villains like the Borg and Q which have taken their own place in Star Trek lore. We often get to enter the world of the Klingons and Romulans, no more merely villains but intelligent and complex to the point we can identify with them in many ways.

We have secondary characters with much depth such as Guinan and Chief Obrien, Warfs son Alexander, Lt. Ro, and even the families of the main characters come into play on many occasions. These characters all come to life, and was perhaps the biggest reason for the show mainstream success. Even among the guest stars we get treats, from Leonard Nimoy as Spock to a young, 'before she was famous' Ashley Judd playing a crew memeber with a romantic interest in Wesley Crusher.

Even a 'written out' character Tasha Yar comes back to life in one of the best episodes 'Yesterdays Enterprise', as well as a story dealing with her sister. Though the character is gone, throughout the series she is remembered by the main characters and even goes on to play a key role in the Klingon Civil War story arc. Needless to say, the commitment of the writers to the characters was vast.

Patrick Stewart as Captain Picard is stunning and eloquent. Every thing he says you feel he means. While Kirk in the old series was quick to kill, Picard is more laid back and reserves blood shed for only the more extreme cases (like the Borg). This difference is mainly from the times of which the series were created.

Kirk's show had the stigma of the Cold War and Communism to fuel it's story line and reflect on the time it was created which was the time of much great fear and revolution in the world especially even in the U.S with racial tensions which that show dealt with in a good manner. Now flash forward to the late 1980's when America and Russia are quickly coming out of the Cold War. This was a time ripe Captain Picard and his resiliency for humanity. Picard remains calm and collected in his shows and always beats the enemy with wit, not might, like Kirk.

Star Trek was never meant to be a realistic depiction of what the future will be like; rather, it's an optimistic argument for what the future could be like. Our heroes on the new Starship Enterprise are noble and rational and the writing is more concerned with ethics than with punch-ups. Fans of Captain Kirk's red-blooded man of action might be disappointed, but then this is a more mature version of Star Trek.

As we mature, we realize there are better ways to solve our problems than with violence. Patrick Stewart's Shakespearean captain is a renaissance man, capable of using the right words and unexpected actions to overcome obstacles, and he needs neither a hairpiece nor a fight scene to prove his character.

There are no space wars in The Next Generation, and for a good reason: creator Gene Roddenberry hoped that by the 24th century war would be a thing of the past. The interpersonal conflicts and domestic dramas of other shows are here replaced by adventure and exploration.

Human nature doesn't have to be absolute: people can change, and humanity can grow and evolve. 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' is seven seasons of optimistic, outward-looking space adventure for people who believe that the human race doesn't need to be defined by the villains it faces, but by its own innate spirit.

TNG premiered the week of September 28, 1987, to 27 million viewers, with the two-hour pilot "Encounter at Farpoint". In total, 178 episodes were made, ending with the two-hour finale "All Good Things..." the week of May 23, 1994. The final episode, "All Good Things..." comprises the 25th and 26th episodes of the seventh season. It is the 177th and 178th episodes of the series overall. The title is derived from the expression "All good things must come to an end", a phrase used by the character "Q" during the episode itself. The finale was written as a "valentine" to the show's fans, and is now generally regarded as one of the series' best episodes.

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.

'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. 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).

'Star Trek The: Next Generation' will have a lasting appeal to future generations of fans. There is something for everyone here, and you won't find much higher quality than 'Star Trek: The Next Generation.'

Star Trek The Complete Unauthorized History written by Robert Greenberger

This is a loving and candid review of the fifty-year franchise, a story as full of plot twists as it's hundreds of episodes and films. Greenberger author of a dozen Star Trek novels and short stories, tells this fascinating take as only an expert and long time fan could ever experienced. He examines the behind-the-scenes saga -- from the struggles of Trekkies enthusiastic creator, Gene Roddenberry to realize his vision on the small screen to the franchise's latest cinematic reinventions -- as well as the devoted fans who support its continuing growth.
