Any infringement of these lists on Paramount's legitimate copyright and trademarks is purely unintentional, and will be corrected upon proper notification.

This is the Star Trek TNG List of Lists. It contains a listing of all the episodes for "Star Trek: The Next Generation" TV series, plus some added notes. (Due to length considerations, there is a separate TOS/TAS, Movies, and DSN List of Lists.) Regretibly, this is the final edition.
If you are wondering why I compile these lists, it is strictly out of the enjoyment of "Star Trek", and the wealth of information posted by other fellow Star Trek fans who post on the electronic networks. After being irritated by the ever-constant requests for episode lists on Usenet, I decided in the middle of 1990 to post a list of episodes on a regular basis. It soon grew from that, and, with the contributions of other people, these lists grew to what you see today. (And they're still growing). The only payment I ask is thanks and contributions, I am not making a dime off these compilations.
Did you know: In PDP-11 assembly language, there was a set of instructions that were specifically implemented for making linked lists. A linked list is a list that points to either another list or a piece of data. In the instruction manuals I read, these were referred to as "lists of lists" (unless, of course, the linked list pointed only to data). (Thanks to Paul Hoffman)

StardatesAfter the random stardates in the original "Star Trek", the powers that be decided on a more logical way to determine a stardate. Thus, the following came about.
EXAMPLE: "Captain's Log: Stardate 45076.3"
The "4" represents that the series takes place in the 24th century, according to an original writer's guide, although Deep Space Nine may change that. It also has been noted that 1000 stardates pass with every year. The "5" represents the season number of TNG without exception. The "076" represents the portion of a season that advances during TNG. The ".3" represents a portion of a day thereof.
During the pre-recorded sub-space messages and recorded logs of away teams, both the current stardate and the current time (in 24-hour military format, down to the second) are shown on the bottom of the screen. ("The Defector", "Identity Crisis")
- "Love Beyond Time And Space" -> "Haven"
- "Where None Have Gone Before" -> "Where No One Has Gone Before"
- "Unconditional Return" -> "11001001"
- "The Shroud" -> "Skin Of Evil"
- "Time To The Second" -> "Time Squared"
- "Send In The Clones" -> "Up The Long Ladder"
- "Beyond Tomorrow" -> "Legacy"
- "When Honor is Lost" -> "Reunion"
- "It Can't Happen Here" -> "The Drumhead"
- "Paradise" -> "The Host"
- "Civil Wars" -> "Half a Life"
- "To The Nth Degree" -> "The Nth Degree"
- "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" -> "In Theory"
- "Barriers" -> "New Ground"
- "Terror In Ten-Forward" -> "Power Play"
- "Q and I" -> "Q-Me" -> "True Q"
- "The Good Fight" -> "Preemptive Strike"
What is canon?According to various sources, this is what is considered acceptable, or canon, for potential TNG episodes:
The following is not acceptable:
- * Almost all of the original series (except for obvious conflicts)
- * All of Star Trek: The Motion Picture
- * Most of Star Trek II, III, IV, and VI
- * All of the TNG episodes
- * "TNG Technical Manual" by Mike Okuda and Rick Sternbach
- * Star Trek (The Animated Series)
- * Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
- * All Star Trek Novels (yes, even the ones Gene Roddenberry wrote)
- * All fanzines and fan written material
- * Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise
- * Worlds Of The Federation
- * All FASA Material
Ranks and InsigniaOn the next generation, the following uniform colors represent which division a person is in:
Medical Corps and Sciences - Navy Blue (?) Security and Engineering - Mustard Yellow Command and Navigation - Wine Red
Vice Admiral - Gold rectangle with three circle in it. (Redemption II and Chain of Command I). (UV) Apparently, the number of circles corresponds to the number of "stars" the admiral has.
Captain - Four solid gold circles
Commander - three solid gold circles
Lieutenant Commander - two solid gold circles and one empty gold circle
Lieutenant - two solid gold circles
Lieutenant (Junior Grade) - One solid gold circle and one empty
Ensign - One solid gold circle
- Two silver rectangles (worn by Kosinski in "Where No One Has Gone Before")
Cadet - Various black stripes depending on group assignment. (First Duty)
NOTE: During seasons one or two, some of the pips were in silver.
NOTE: There have been inaccuracies with the pips and ranks, especially with the rank of O'Brien.
According to Gene Roddenberry, there are no enlisted ranks in Starfleet. However, in "Family", Sergei Rozhenko (Worf's foster father) mentions something about meeting another Chief Petty Officer. Later on, in the same episode, Sergei mentions that he, an enlisted man, managed to raise an officer. Also, in "The Drumhead", the part-Romulan, part-Human medical technician said that he was so anxious to get into space, he decided to forgo the Academy and, instead, become enlisted. This will indeed contradict what Gene has said.
In "Future Imperfect", some of the ranks in effect 15 years from season 4 are:
Admiral - Four Gold Bars
Captain - Four Silver Bars
The other ranks are based upon the "normal" TNG ranks. They are formed by substituting a bar for a solid circle and a narrow bar for an empty circle. The rank is part of the insignia/communicator.
"Encounter at Farpoint" - Picard says "Transmit the following in all languages and in all frequencies: 'We surrender'."
"The Last Outpost" - The crew assumes that the Ferengi have them immobilized, and attempt to surrender, but the Ferengi surrender first, believing that the Enterprise have them immobilized.
"The Outrageous Okona" - Picard drops shields "In case we decide to surrender to them."
"A Matter Of Honor" - Picard surrenders to Riker on the Pagh.
"Peak Performance" - Riker asks Picard "Would you care to surrender now?" even before the war games begin. Later, the Ferengi drop by, and demand the surrender of the Hathaway.
"The Defector" - The Romulans ask Picard to surrender, but he doesn't.
"Yesterday's Enterprise" - Alternate-Picard refuses to surrender to the Klingons.
Picard violates the Prime DirectiveIn "The Drumhead", it is recorded that Picard violated the Prime Directive nine times while in command of the Enterprise. While it was not directly specified what the nine violations were, these are believed to be the episodes containing these violations:
"Justice" - In order to save Wesley from the death penalty for (accidentally) violating one of the Edo laws.
"Angel One" - The crew barely managed to save the survivors of a Federation ship from death for trying to change the society of Angel One.
"Pen Pals" - Data communicates with a girl whose planet was slowly self-destructing.
"Up The Long Ladder" - Picard essentially forced the clone race to live and breed with the Bringloidi, despite the strong resistance of the clone race and the fact that this would completely destroy the non-sexual nature of the clone race.
"The Ensigns of Command" - The Enterprise manages to delay a Sheliak vessel from destroying a Federation colony on Tau Cygna Five, even though the planet is part of the Sheliak Corporate.
"Who Watches The Watchers" - The Enterprise treats a Mintakan person for serious injuries as a result of a Federation observation post's cloaking device's failure, ending with that race believing Picard was a god.
"The High Ground" - The Enterprise engages in a commando raid in order to rescue Captain Picard and Beverly Crusher on a warring world.
"Legacy" - The commando raid might have radically changed the balance of power on the planet.
"First Contact" - The Enterprise contacts a planet in order to rescue Commander Riker.
Command Offered to Commander Riker
Riker actually commands a ship, albeit temporarily, in the following episodes:
- "The Arsenal of Freedom" - USS Drake (mentioned--offered before Enterprise)
- "The Icarus Factor" - USS Aries
- "Best of Both Worlds" - USS Melbourne
Wesley Saves The Day...."The Naked Now" - Wesley modifies a tractor beam into a repulser beam to push the Enterprise away in order to give Data the extra time needed to reinsert the chips.
"Where No One Has Gone Before" - Wesley is the only one to notice that the traveler is phasing.
"The Battle" - Wesley discovers the Ferengi transmissions which are affecting Picard.
"The Big Goodbye" - Wesley fixes the holodeck because his mother is in there.
"Datalore" - Wesley realizes that Lore is impersonating Data
"Peak Performance" - Wesley's experiment is beamed onto Riker's ship, giving the ship the necessary power to "save the day".
"The High Ground" - Wesley comes up with a way to track the dimensional shift of the terrorists.
"Ménage à Troi" - Wesley identifies a signal as resembling a Betazoid gong, helping to save Lwaxana Troi, Deanna Troi, and Riker from the Ferengi ship.
"Final Mission" - Wesley is able to get past the guardian of the well and get water for Captain Picard.
"The Game" - Wesley realizes the true purpose of the game and repairs Data in time to awaken everyone from hypnosis.
....and Screws Up"Justice" - Wesley trips over a barrier, and nearly loses his life.
"Evolution" - Wesley, while pulling an all-nighter, leaves a container open, causing some nanites to escape and wreck havoc on the ship.
"Remember Me" - Wesley's experiment causes his mother to be trapped in a warp bubble.
"The First Duty" - Wesley's flight team performs an extremely dangerous maneuver which results in a serious accident and causes the death of a fellow team member. The resulting coverup causes Wesley to repeat a year at the academy.
The Walking DeadSeveral times during the series, a major character has died, only to be saved at the last minute. Some of these episodes include:
"Hide And Q" - Worf and Wesley get impaled by soldiers.
"Time Squared" - The Enterprise is seen being destroyed.
"The Most Toys" - Data is believed to be dead by the crew.
"Transfigurations" - Worf falls down in the shuttle bay, only to be saved by John Doe.
"Ethics" - After a barrel crashes on Worf back, Worf dies during an experimental surgery. However, his "redundant" body organs kicked in at the last minute.
"Cause And Effect" - A collision with a starship causes the Enterprise to explode, killing everyone on board, and causing a time loop in which the Enterprise encounters a collision with another starship, killing everyone on board, causing a time loop...
"Man Of The People" - Deanna is killed in order to stop an ambassador from passing his evil emotions to another empathic person.
"Gambit" - Captain Picard is believed to be dead.
Who's Smoking?"Encounter at Farpoint" - Q appears in 20th century military uniform with an unlit cigarette in his right hand.
"Lonely Among Us" - Data smokes a pipe (much to the dismay of the rest of the crew, especially Lt. Yar) as the first part of adopting his Sherlock Holmes character.
"The Big Goodbye" - Picard is offered a holographic cigarette in the police station. His coughing displays his displeasure.
"Manhunt" - Picard as Dixon Hill lights up again in full view, without coughing.
"Deja Q" - After Q gets his powers back, he brings the Mexican band to the bridge, and gives Riker and Picard a cigar, and after he leaves, he becomes the smoke from Picard's cigar.
"Clues" - Guinan has a lit cigarette in a holder in D Hill's outer office, doesn't take a puff. (Watch how the cigarette always changes to a different length at each camera cut. A common problem in any movie where smoking is portrayed).
"Time's Arrow" - Samuel Clemens chomps on a huge cigar. Suffers from tobacco addiction withdrawal in the second part.
"A Fistful of Datas" - Troi, playing the mysterious stranger, is seen smoking in the sheriff's office.
Saucer SeparationThe TNG Enterprise, being a starship carrying families, has the ability to separate into saucer and warp drive sections in case of an emergency situation. When separated, the saucer section is capable of only impulse speed, while the warp drive section turns into a formidable battle machine.
"Encounter at Farpoint" - While Worf takes the saucer section to Farpoint Station, Picard takes the warp drive section to meet up with the Q entity.
"Arsenal of Freedom" - Geordi takes the Warp Drive section in order to destroy the defense device on Minos, while Chief Engineer Logan takes the saucer section to safety.
"Best of Both Worlds - Part II" - In order to retrieve Locutus/Picard, the Enterprise separates into two sections, with Riker in charge of the Warp Drive section, and Cmdr. Shelby in command of the saucer section. While the Borg attack the warp drive section, the rescue shuttle with Worf and Data launches from the saucer section.
Part of the reason that we don't see more saucer seperations is due to budget constraints.
ShuttlecraftThe following shuttlecraft, associated with the Enterprise, have appeared in TNG:
Other shuttlecraft from other ships....
- NCC-1701D-1 - "Sakarov" ("Unnatural Selection")
- NCC-1701D-2 - "Goddard" (loaned to Scotty in "Relics")
- NCC-1701D-5 - "El-Baz" ("Time Squared", "Descent, Part I")

In "Unnatural Selection", Data states explicitly that he is fully trained to pilot all current Federation vessels, including auxiliaries (namely Shuttlecraft). We've also seen Ro, Riker, Picard, Wesley, Geordi, and Worf fly shuttles, but Data seems to be the crew's "driver."
- NCC-2544-10 - (shuttle from USS Repulse, "The Child")
- NCC-45167 - "Cousteau" (from the Aries, "Identity Crisis")
In the episode "Power Play", Chief O'Brien mentions that some of the shuttlecraft are equipped with transporters, as demonstrated earlier with "The Best of Both Worlds - Part II".

"Time's Arrow" - Upon discovery of Data's head on Earth, the crew of the Enterprise travel to a planet. In order to see the aliens/shapeshifters, Data constructs a phase inverter, and, in the process, manages to travel to 1893. At the end of part one, Picard, Riker, Troi, Dr. Crusher, and Geordi walk into the time vortex, and end up in the 19th century, although they did manage to get back into the 24th century, and accidentally sending Samuel Clemens to the 24th century before returning him to the 19th century.
"Tapestry" - An alien creature on a Romulan ship causes time to stand still in order to save it's young.

"Where No One Has Gone Before" - In a warp field experiment with the Traveler, Wesley's distraction causes the Traveler to phase in and out, and causes the Enterprise to travel 2.7 million light years in a few seconds.
"When The Bough Breaks" - When Captain Picard insists that the Aldean people return the children kidnapped from the Enterprise, the Enterprise is hit with a bolt of energy that causes it to travel such a distance that it would take three days to travel back to Aldea at Warp 9.
"Q Who" - Q, with the snap of his fingers, send the Enterprise 7,000 light years away for their first encounter with the Borg. Also, when the Enterprise is being chased by the Borg, LaForge reads the speed off as Warp 9.65.

TOS/TMS Crossovers In TNGWhile TNG is supposed to take place 78 years after the original series, there have been occasions in which various characters and actors, who appeared in either the original series or the movies, reappeared on TNG. Among these are....
"Encounter at Farpoint" - DeForest Kelley makes an appearance as an unnamed admiral who hates transporters and notices that Data, with all that knowledge, doesn't have pointed ears.
"The Naked Now" - The records from the original Enterprise ("The Naked Time") were used to combat a microbe that causes drunk-like effects.
"Symbiosis" - Merritt Butrick was T'Jon in "Symbiosis", and, of course, appeared as Kirk's son David Marcus in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek III: The Search For Spock. (After his appearance in TNG, Merritt Butrick died due to complications of AIDS)
"Sarek" - Mark Lenard makes an appearance as Sarek.
"Unification" - Leonard Nimoy makes an appearance as Spock and Mark Lenard as Sarek. Malachi Throne, who plays Romulan Senator Pardek in "Unification", was involved in TOS's "The Managerie" as Commodore Jose Mendez.
"Relics" - Scotty modified the transporter so that the transporter buffer is recycled and the rematerialization subroutine is disabled so that the two survivors of the Jenolin could survive while waiting for a rescue. 75 years later, the Enterprise reactivates the transporter, and Scotty is the lone survivor, without aging.
Kirk has been mentioned in "The Naked Now", "Unification II", and "Relics".
Diana Muldaur, a guest star on TOS episodes "Return To Tomorrow" as Dr. Ann Mulhall and "Is There In Truth No Beauty" as Dr. Miranda Jones, appeared on a regular basis as Dr. Pulaski during the second season of TNG.
Majel Barrett, who played Number One ("The Cage") and Doctor/Nurse Chapel, is used as the TNG computer voice, and has appeared as Deanna Troi's mother, Lwaxana Troi.
Security CodesEmergency Evacuation in "11001001":
This is the emergency evacuation procedule while the Enterprise is docked at a space station.
"Decks 2 through 4 to cargo transporters. Decks 5 through 10 proceed to transporters 1, 2, 3, and 4. Decks 6 through 16 proceed to transporters 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Decks 17 through 28 proceed to transporters 11, 12, 13, and 14. Decks 29 through 42 proceed to transporters 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20. This is not a drill. This is not a drill."
Auto-Destruct Sequence in "11001001": (V)
Picard and Riker place their hands on the computer terminals for finger scan. Computer: "Recognized - Picard, Jean-Luc, Captain. Recognized - Riker, William T., Commander."
Picard: "Set auto-destruct sequence."
Computer: "Does the first officer concur?"
Riker: "Yes, set auto-destruct sequence...now."
Computer: "Auto-destruct will detonate in four minutes and fifty-nine seconds."
Picard: (lays hand on bridge computer console) "Cancel auto-destruct."
Computer: "Does the first officer agree?"
Riker: (laying hand on computer) "Affirmative"
Computer: "Auto-destruct cancelled."
(NOTE: While the auto-destruct can be activated in Engineering, it can only be deactivated on the bridge.)
Secured Message Code in "Conspiracy" (UV):
Capain Picard received a message that is labeled Code 47. Code 47 is a Starfleet emergency frequency, and is for the Captain's eyes only. Verification is as follows:
The screen shows the Starfleet logo with the words "United Federation Of Planets"/"Starfleet Command".
Computer: "This is an emergency communique. It is not to be discussed with fellow officers unless deemed absolutely necessary. There will be no computer record of said transmission."
Computer: "Proceed with voiceprint identification."
Picard: "Picard, Jean-Luc, Captain, USS Enterprise."
Computer: "Voiceprint verified."
Later in that episode, another verification procedure takes place in order to verify that Picard has not been taken over:
Captain Picard beams onto Ditalics Three. He enters a mine, and is met with Captain Rixx, whose phaser is pointed at Picard. Captain Scott and Captain Keel join the group, with Scott pulling out her phaser and pointing it at Picard.
Keel: "Thanks for coming."
Picard: "This is some greeting, old friend."
Keel: "Tell me, Jean-Luc... where did we first meet?"
Rixx: "Answer the question."
Picard: "Calsetie three. It was a bar, and quite an exotic one as I remember. What do I win?"
Keel: "Do you recall the night you introduced Jack Crusher to Beverly?"
Picard: "You know full well that I hadn't met Beverly then, you introduced them."
Keel: "My brother introduced them."
Picard: "You don't have a brother. Two sisters, Anna and Melissa. What the hell is all this about?"
Keel nods to Rixx and Scott, who put away their phasers.
Rixx: "Apologies, Captain. We had to make sure you were really you."
Picard Secured Message Code in "The Defector": (V)
(Picard and Data are viewing information on Nelvana system)
Computer: "Captain Picard, priority one message from Starfleet coming in on secured channel."
Picard: "In my ready room. Computer, delay time."
Computer: "Two hours twenty-two minute delay from time of transmission at Starfleet Command on Lion Three."
Picard: (having entered his ready room) "Computer, key access Four One Two Mark Eight Zero Picard, Jean-Luc Starfleet Priority Code Gamma. Decode. Begin Message."
Ferengi Captain's Security Code in "Ménage à Troi" (V):
Lwaxana Troi: "Oh, I'll need your access code."
Daimon Tog: "Yes, my beloved. Computer, access code kei yuri dactei..."
Dr. Farek: (Interrupting) "TOG! Be silent! I knew you were not to be trusted."
Data's Lock on command functions in "Brothers" (V):
Spoken: One Seven Three Four Six Seven [Three] Two One Four Seven Six Charlie Three Two Seven Eight Nine Seven Seven Seven Six [Four] Three Tango Seven Three Two Victor Seven Three One One Seven Eight Eight Eight Seven Three Two Four Seven Six Seven Eight Nine Seven Six Four Three Seven Six LOCK
Display: One Seven Three Four Six Seven Two One Four Seven Six Charlie Three Two Seven Eight Nine Seven Seven Seven Six Three Tango Seven Three Two Victor Seven Three One One Seven [One] Eight Eight Eight Seven Three Two Four Seven Six Seven Eight Nine Seven Six Four Three Seven Six LOCK
Numbers in [Brackets] are unique to the series they appear in (i.e. missing from the other).
Computer Recognition Command Levels in "Brothers": (UV)
Riker: Omega-3 (In "Power Play")
Klingon File Security Access Codes in "Reunion": (UV)
K'Ehleyr's Access Level: "Padoch-Cha"
Required Access Level: "Duco-Cha"
T'Pel's (Romulan Spy Selak) clearance code to Data for information in "Data's Day": (UV)
LaForge's Access Code in "The Minds Eye":
LaForge: "Computer, reroute the power flow in Cargo Bay 4 transporter through the auxiliary replicator system."
Computer: "Please verify command with necessary protocol."
LaForge: "Initiate protocol 364-B."
Computer: "Verify priority clearance."
LaForge: "Recognized LaForge Theta 2 997."
Computer: "Acknowledged. Power has been rerouted through auxiliary power distribution system code number 44762."
(Note, this code was also used in "Hollow Pursuits")
Riker Command Override in "Power Play":
When the bridge was taken over: "Computer, transfer command to Engineering, full security alert." This effectively shut down all control panels, including Con and Ops.
After Troi, O'Brien, and Data leave the bridge: "Computer, re-enable bridge control, security protocol authorization Riker Omega Three."
Convention HintsIf you are writing a letter to a cast member or a guest star, please send a SASE to:[Name of cast member or guest star] c/o Paramount Pictures Corporation 5555 Melrose Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90038DO NOT USE THEIR HOME ADDRESSES. First of all, these actors and actresses deserve their privacy, and secondly, they will return all mail sent to their home addresses unopened.
Patrick Stewart - May or may not allow taping of convention appearance. He considers convention appearances to be a personal experience to be shared with those in the audience.
Brent Spiner - He is very protective of his privacy, and rarely makes convention appearances, partially due to a bad experience with a fan at a convention in New York. He does not allow the video taping or the photographing of convention appearances.
Gates McFadden - Do not videotape convention appearance.
Wil Wheaton - He doesn't allow videotaping. The explanation was that someone had taped him before and sold these tapes without his consent or paying him.
Michael Dorn - "I don't LIKE prune juice, Worf likes prune juice, I don't."
Marina Sirtis - Marina objects to being videotaped now. No flash photography when Q&A starts. Also, she has no idea about how the pips work, nothing about Engineering, why Worf changed uniform color, and similar topics. Also, please seperate the character names from the actor names.
Please remember, these actors are taking their personal time in order to appear at conventions. Some of these actors do not give out autographs, others do. The "no videotaping" rule is due to the fact that some unscrupulous people tape the convention appearances and then resell the tapes without royalties going to the actors.
How Many Episodes?In order to be counted as appearing on an episode, the character must appear or be heard in the episode. Holograms and flashbacks don't count.

Money In The FutureIt should be noted that people are always offering to buy each other coffee, etc. in Ten Forward, but this may just be a gesture, since we never see anyone pay for anything. Also, they must be playing poker for *some* stakes, just playing for chips would be meaningless.
"Encounter at Farpoint" - Beverly Crusher buys a roll of cloth, and has her account on the Enterprise billed.
"The Last Outpost" - The Ferengi called the comm badges a shamefull use of a precious metal, yet they said they have their own "matter-energy device".
"Skin Of Evil" - [Unconfirmed] Worf mentioned that Tasha was favored in the ship's pool in the upcoming martial arts tournament.
"Conspiracy" - The planet where the Starship Captains meet is Ditalics B, and is said to be owned by Ditalics Mining Corporation, which may imply something of the Federation's economic structure.
"The Neutral Zone" - Picard mentions that they no longer use money.
"Manhunt" - Picard, while on the holodeck running the Dixon Hill program, goes to the bar to buy a drink. He, of course, forgot to bring money, and the lady had to pay for the drinks.
"The Price" - There is a bidding war going on for the use of a wormhole, and Picard mentions how much toll the Ferengi might charge if they get the rights to use that wormhole.
"Peak Performance" - Riker is playing strategema against Kolrami. Worf whispers to Riker that he has bet a "sizeable amount" on Riker in the ship's pool.
"A Matter of Perspective" - Dr. Apgar's reason for developing the Krieger wave generator was to sell it to the highest bidder.
"Unification II" - When Riker enters the bar, he is asked to toss a couple of coins into the jar for a song. Riker responds that he doesn't have any money.
"Gambit" - The pursuit of an ancient Romulan artifact is accompanied by a promise of gold pressed latnium.
Religion In The Future"Who Watches The Watchers" - Picard is thought to be a god by the populace.
"Data's Day" - In Data's log, a Hindu festival of lights is mentioned.
Differences in "Encounter at Farpoint"Currently, "Encounter at Farpoint" is being distributed in both a two-part form and a two-hour movie form. The two-hour movie was shown as the first episode of TNG, the repeat was shown as a two-part episode. Currently, the stations that are showing TNG as a daily syndicated program have "Encounter At Farpoint" as a two-part episode.
Unfortunately, the two-part episode is heavily butchered. Among the changes from the two-hour movie version:
To add additional confusion, Paramount has officially retired the two-hour movie, and has made available for the videotape and laserdisc series an unbutchered two-part episode of "Encounter At Farpoint."
- The movie version starts out with the credits, the two-parter starts out with a teaser instead.
- In the movie version, Riker sees what happens in two sections. In the two-parter, the second section is cut out.
- The two-parter had the rejoining of the saucer section with the warp drive section being severely edited.
- A section where Picard is talking to Dr. Crusher about Wesley is cut.
- A scene where Geordi talks to Dr. Crusher about his VISOR was moved to part two. It appeared in the first half of the movie version.
- Some of the audio was changed, and somewhat "sweetened" (Mike Brown term), in the two-part version.
Data Using ContractionsIn "Datalore", Lore says that there are differences between him and Data, among them, the ability of Lore being able to use contractions, while Data couldn't. Yet, in "The Offspring", Data says that he "hadn't quite mastered" contractions. It appears that Data can use contractions, as the following shows indicate . . . . .
1. "Encounter at Farpoint" - At the beginning of the "post Atomic-horror" courtroom, when Q enters, Data says, "At least we're acquainted with the judge, Captain." Also, when Data is asked by a very familiar "Admiral" if he is a Vulcan, Data replies, "No sir, I'm an android." (Entire Episode-V)
3. "The Naked Now" - In the teaser, Data says, "Captain, what we've just heard is...impossible." Then, during act one, while on the science vessel, Data says: "Correction, sir.. that's blown out." instead of "that is". Then, after being examined by Dr. Crusher, Data says "I'm already listed in several bio-mechanical texts." Later, after Picard orders Yar to the sick bay, Yar asks "Did he say when?", to which Data replies "I'm sure he meant now." In this same scene, "Chronological age, no. I'm afaid I am not...." (Entire Episode-V)
4. "Code of Honor" - After telling the joke about kiddlelies (?), which contains two contractions, Data says, "I've told 662 jokes." On the planet, where Data and Geordi have beamed down to examine the weapons to be used in the fight, Picard speculates as to the use of a number of metal lengths in the yard. Data answers at some length as to their possible uses, and is cut off by Picard - Picard: "Thank you, Data". Data: "You're welcome, sir." Back on board the Enterprise, Data is briefing Riker as to Picard's plan. Data: "I'm here to brief you on what he wants."
5. "The Last Outpost" - During the conversation with Sentry, Data clearly said "I'm afraid not." (UV)
6. "Where No Man Has Gone Before" - After they shot out of the galaxy and were looking at all the nice special effects outside, Data said something like, "It's beautiful". (UV)
13. "Datalore" - In the teaser, in response to Tasha's query about holding the memory of over 411 people, Data responds, "Actually, I'm quite efficient in some basic human information." Then, in act one, on the way to the place where he was found, in response to Tasha's query about the colonist's memories, Data replies, "I've always felt that it was done hurriedly, but I know little more." Next, in Act Two, in a conversation with Chief Argyle, Data says, "I've been most anxious to hear the Chief Engineer's opinion, Mr. Argyle." Then, in the final act, after the fight with Lore, Picard asks Data if he's ok, in which Data replies, "Yes Sir, I'm fine." This is quite surprising, since this is one episode which they should have been extra careful about using contractions. (V)
20. "Heart of Glory" - (UV)
29. "Elementary, Dear Data" - When Data and Geordi are just about to confront Moriarty for the first time, Data notices some scratches near Moriarty's secret entrance and he asks, "What's this?" (UV)
64. "The Offspring" - In the Captain's quarters, after Picard answers Data's question about Admiral Halftel having children, Data replies, "I'm forced to wonder how much experience he had as a parent when his first child was born." (V)
82. "Future Imperfect" - The future Data uses a contraction.
99. "In Theory" - When entering Jenna's quarters, Data recites several phrases with contractions, including "Honey, I'm Home" and "You don't tell me what to do! You're not my mother!" - a clear contradiction of the no-contraction rule. However, he was running a program in which he was simply reciting various phrases couples use, and he was saying them in a different tone of voice than usual. (V)
135. "The Quality of Life" - Data clearly states "The transporter controls are not malfunctioning. I've locked out the controls."
ST:TNG Technical ManualThe "Star Trek: The Next Generation" Technical Manual (Pocket Books, ISBN 0-671-70427-3) is the complete technical guide to the Treknology used in TNG. It is written by Rick Sternbach and Michael Okuda, who work in TNG's Art Department. Among their responsibilities include making sure that everything is consistent in the technical department from show to show. However, they have been known to clown around a little, and some of that clowning has shown up in the technical manual. Such as:
7 - The line drawing of the Enterprise is the mirror image of what it should be. Shuttlebay 3 (the wide bay) should be on the right hand side and Shuttlebay 2 (the narrow bay). The descriptions, however, point to the correct relative positions. This has been confirmed with the onscreen image of the Enterprise and the other drawings throughout the manual.
11 - In the saucer section, right above the Captain's Yacht, there is a duck. A half inch to the left and a little bit down, there is a mouse. Slightly to the right of the mouse, there is a "Slippery When Wet" sign. In the shuttle bay, there are three big shuttles, two small shuttles, and a Porsche. To the right of the duck, about one inch, there is a DC-3 cargo aircraft, and, in that same rectangle, there is a symbol of a woman and a child (the symbol for Canada's "Family" rating for movies). Also, right under the warp pylons, there is a registered trademark symbol. In addition, there is an image of NOMAD on it's side, center of the saucer section, forward.
Interestingly enough, if you look at the ship diagram in Engineering on the show, those exact items show up.
77 - One of the controls not seen is the "Infinite Improbability Generator", a reference from the "Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
120 - The tricorder display shows "TR580 TRICORDER VII", a reference to the old Radio Shack TRS-80's.
159 - One of the shuttle names is "Hawking"

Eugene Wesley "Gene" RoddenberryAugust 19, 1921 - October 24, 1991
He created a legend which continues on today, creating a show that has helped believe that there was a future worth living for. He showed us that space is not just for space battles, but for learning new ideas and ways of thinking, and, indirectly, has done more for civil rights and the space program than Martin Luther King, Jr. and John F. Kennedy. Gene will be missed, but will not be forgotten.
