Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) is an American science fiction television series created by Gene Roddenberry. It originally aired from September 28, 1987 to May 23, 1994 in syndication, spanning 178 episodes over seven seasons. The third series in the Star Trek franchise, it is the second sequel to Star Trek: The Original Series. Set in the 24th century, when Earth is part of the United Federation of Planets, it follows the adventures of a Starfleet starship, the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D), in its exploration of the Milky Way galaxy.

The Next Generation was shot on 35mm film, and the budget for each episode was $1.3 million, among the highest for a one-hour television drama. While the staff enjoyed the creative freedom gained by independence from a broadcast network’s Standards and Practices department, the first season was marked by a “revolving door” of writers, with Gerrold, Fontana, and others quitting after disputes with Roddenberry. Roddenberry “virtually rewrote” the first 15 episodes because of his “dogmatic” intention to depict human interaction “without drawing on the baser motives of greed, lust, and power”. Writers found the show’s “bible” constricting and ridiculous and could not deal with Roddenberry’s ego and treatment of them. It stated, for example, that “regular characters all share a feeling of being part of a band of brothers and sisters. As in the original Star Trek, we invite the audience to share the same feeling of affection for our characters”. David Gerrold claimed that at one point, Roddenberry’s lawyer came aboard and started taking apart six months of work, including the removal of a gay couple that Roddenberry had promised would be included in the series, which made Gerrold decide to leave the show.
