1966ÂThe first Star Trek pilot, ÂThe Cage, is aired.

1977ÂStar Trek II, a new television show featuring the original cast, is proposedÂand never made.

1979ÂStar Trek: The Motion Picture, the first in what would become a long line of feature films, is released.

1987ÂA totally new Star Trek television show premieresÂa show that would become one of the most popular syndicated series of all time, spawn two more Trek-inspired shows, and start another series of successful feature films. Star Trek: The Next Generation is bornÂand science fiction television is changed forever.

The TrekkerÂs Guide to the Next Generation reveals what went intoÂand was left out ofÂthe seven television seasons and two feature films about the crew of the second Enterprise. Hal Schuster, a long-time, prominent chronicler of the Star Trek phenomenon, details just how the show was created, and how it changed following the death of Star Trek originator Gene Roddenberry. He traces the history of The Next Generation from the cancellation of a popular program to the beginnings of a box-office serial smash.

Using information culled from interviews, the showÂs own bible, and other sources, The TrekkerÂs Guide to The Next Generation takes you inside the popular phenomenon. Read character profiles and biographies of the actors who brought them to life. Get plot summaries for each of the 177 television episodes, plus guest stars, innovations, and bloopers. Learn what happened between James T. KirkÂs command and the debut of the new Enterprise with Captain Jean-Luc Picard at the helm. Review Star Trek science, comparing factual physics and the writers flights of fancy.

Totally unauthorized and uncensored The TrekkerÂs Guide to The Next Generation tells you what the producers at Paramount Pictures donÂt want you to know!
