Star Trek TNG

Series Summary


 

Series Premise

    It is now the 24th century, about 80 years after the time of Captain James Kirk. The fifth starship Enterprise, the largest and most sophisticated vessel in Starfleet, is about to begin her mission of exploration. Because the mission is planned to last at least ten years, she carries, not only her crew of Starfleet officers, but their families as well, for a total of more than 1,000 persons. As expected, the Enterprise sports many technological advances over the original starship Enterprise. However, like her predecessor, this Enterprise is not only a ship of exploration, but is capable of defending herself and the interests of the United Federation of Planets should the need arise.

    During the 80 years since the mission of the original starship Enterprise, the Federation has grown significantly, now including many new member nations. One major political change is that peace now exists between the Federation and Klingon Empire. Although the Klingons are not members of the Federation, they are good allies. However, threats to Federation security still exist in the form of the Romulans, Cardassians, and Ferengi. A major new threat also soon presents itself in the form of the Borg, human/machine creatures whose only goal is to "assimilate" all civilizations which they encounter.
