Star Trek: The Next Generation was the long awaited sequel to The Original Series, it again featured the crew of the Enterprise, however this was the Enterprise-D, the fifth ship to bear the name, and the crew was from the 24th century, not the 23rd, therefore the technology was farther advanced. It would feature an android science officer and a Klingon security officer, like it's predecessor, it dealed with current events and it's plot foundations were filled with morals and it forced it's viewers to ask the tough questions about themselves and mankind. This series would last for 7 years and at the end of its 7th season it would still be one of the most popular shows of all time.
