Star Trek: The Next Generation is an American science fiction television series which aired in syndication from September 1987 through May 1994. It is the second live action series of the Star Trek franchise, and comprises a total of 178 episodes over seven seasons. The series picks up about 75 years after the original series is said to have taken place.

The main cast consisted of Patrick Stewart as captain Jean-Luc Picard, Jonathan Frakes as his second-in-command William Riker, Brent Spiner as chief of operations Data, LeVar Burton as chief engineer Geordi LaForge, Marina Sirtis as counselor Deanna Troi, Michael Dorn as chief of security Worf, and Gates McFadden as Dr. Beverly Crusher. McFadden left the show after the first season and was replaced for the second season with Diana Muldaur as Dr. Katherine Pulaski, but returned for the third season and remained with the cast thereafter. Wil Wheaton starred as Wesley Crusher in seasons 1–4, returning for guest appearances in seasons 5 and 7. Denise Crosby played chief security officer Tasha Yar in the first season but her character was killed in the episode "Skin of Evil". Crosby would return for several guest appearances in later seasons.

The Next Generation cast also appears in four feature films: Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, and Nemesis.

The television episodes are listed here in chronological order by original air date, which match the episode order in each season's DVD set. This list also includes the stardate on which the events of each episode took place within the fictional Star Trek universe.

Both the series' premiere ("Encounter at Farpoint") and finale ("All Good Things...") originally aired as single two-hour presentations, but have since aired as two one-hour episodes. Also, some shows especially the season cliffhanger and its bridge aired separately, but have been editing together into a single feature in certain cases.

Two-part episodes summary[edit]

The two-part episodes are sometimes edited into one showing and released as a single feature. Typically the short summary of Part I at the start of Part II, as well as second showing of the opening credits is cut.

In addition, there are a number episodes that are essentially sequels to the story arc of some episodes. One of the most blatant of these is "Family" which directly addresses many of the implications of The Best of Both Worlds, and "Q Who" a prequel.

Two famous episodes "The Inner Light" (Hugo award winner) and "The Measure of a Man" were not two-part episodes, although an extended cut of the latter was released in 2012.

Certain episodes of the series have also been released on eight "best of" collections.[9]

The four Next Generation movies were released together on a Blu-ray set in 2009.[19][20] They have subsequently been re-released individually.

Three episodes were released on region-free Blu-ray Disc in January 2012.[9] The complete series was digitally remastered in 1080p high definition and will be available for Blu-ray releases, syndication on television, and distribution digitally.[21]

The digital distribution of the remastered series has been through services such as iTunes and Amazon Video. Seasons 1 and 2 were released on the US, Canadian and UK iTunes stores in early 2013, in both high and standard definition. Seasons 3 and 4 were released on the US and Canadian iTunes stores in the second half of 2013, and on the UK store in March 2014 - again in both high and standard definition. In early 2014, the first four seasons were added to the Australian iTunes Store in both high and standard definition. Both high and standard definition versions of Season 5 were released digitally in the US via Amazon Video and iTunes in early May 2014, and later in the UK, Canadian and Australian iTunes stores. In December 2014, Season 6 was added in both high and standard definition to the US iTunes Store.

The complete series was added to the Netflix streaming service in the US in 2011. In 2015, the series was updated to the high-definition remastered version of the show.

There were also five fan collective DVD collections, that released a set of episodes across the Star Trek franchise but included episodes from TNG.[22] The five sets are Borg, Klingon, Q, Time Travel, and Captain's Log.[22]
