star trek the next generation
This week saw the 45th anniversary of the debut of Star Trek, the science fiction franchise that reflected the optimism of the space race and made science fiction mainstream years before George Lucas would manage to get Darth Vader to pant heavily. As a television show, it changed everything and taught the world many valuable lessons... like the ones we're about to share with you.
Netflix has acquired streaming rights for all the Star Trek television series, and plans to roll them out toward the end of the year. Good news for fans, definitely, but what if you've never seen any of the five shows and your time is limited? Don't worry: We'll tell you the 20 episodes you should make room in your schedule to see.
Number One and Data no more, the stars of Star Trek: The Next Generation turned their Emerald City Comicon panel into a joke-fest for thousands of happy fans.
Star Trek: The Next Generation was my first real Star Trek series. I was born too late for the original show (and the animated follow-up, for that matter), and as a kid, the re-runs just didn't do it for me. But ST:TNG debuted when I was thirteen, and I was completely sold on everything from Picard's calmness to Troi's plunging necklines. I avidly devoured every new episode, and couldn't wait for more... which should've been a sign that I shouldn't have rewatched the show recently, really.
