Running from 1987 to 1994, Star Trek: The Next Generation followed in the original Star Trek’s footsteps with the mission of exploring new worlds and seeking out new civilisations, while importantly going where no man has gone before. Based 70 years after the original show, Star Trek: The Next Generation introduced many characters that soon became as well-loved as those of the original cast.
