Star Trek: The Next Generation

Lonely Among Us - S1-E7

New this month Trivia: As Riker, Crusher, Geordi and Troi talk about Picard, there is a model of the Original series Shuttle craft behind Troi, with the markings 'NCC-1701/7' (otherwise known as the Galileo 7) It was the model most used for TOS shuttle sequences.

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

New this month Trivia: While Data researches Dixon Hill, the computer displays the titles and proclaims that the series is written by Tracy Torme. Tracy Torme is the writer of a number of Next Generation Episodes.

Movie Nut

New this month Trivia: The design of the visor that Geordi wears was based on an 89 cent banana hair clip.

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

New this month Trivia: Admiral McCoy is supposed to be 137 years old in his cameo. Since this is set 73 years after Kirk and Spock, McCoy would have been 64 at the time of Camp Khitomer in Star Trek VI, The Undiscovered Country.

Movie Nut

Trivia: Another joke from the set designers: whenever someone is in the Jeffries Tubes, you will see several pipes on the walls labeled "GNDN" this stands for "Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing."

Trivia: The cast really are very good friends. At LeVar Burton's wedding in 1992, the best man was Brent Spiner and the ushers were Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes and Michael Dorn. And when Brent Spiner recorded an album (Ol' Yellow Eyes is Back), the backing groups listed as The Sunspots are again the male members of the bridge crew.

The Measure of a Man - S2-E9

Trivia: When Riker views Data's file on his computer, Data is listed as "NFN NMI Data." This stands for "no first name" and "no middle initial."

Remember Me - S4-E5

Trivia: Gates McFadden (Commander Beverly Crusher, M.D) did all of her own stunts in this episode, while she was early on in her pregnancy.

The Defector - S3-E10

Trivia: Data's performance of Henry V was based, in part, on the 1989 film by Kenneth Branagh. In 1980, Patrick Stewart appeared in the TV movie Hamlet, Prince of Denmark with Derek Jacobi, who in turn appeared with Branagh in Henry V.

Trivia: The ceiling of the transporter chamber is actually the floor of the transporter chamber from the original series.

The First Duty - S5-E19

Trivia: The Federation flag has the Roman numeral MMCLXI, which is 2161, the year that the United Federation of Planets was founded. It's motto, "Ex astra, scientia" is latin for "from the stars, knowledge."

Trivia: Further to the Trivia entry, a control in Engineering is labelled 'Infinite Improbability Drive' as a nod to Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Also, one of the indicators above a diagnostic bed in Sickbay reads 'Medical Insurance Remaining.'

Relics - S6-E4

Trivia: Scotty visits the bridge from "his" Enterprise (from the original 1966 Star Trek series) on the Holodeck. As the original set had long since been destroyed, the captain's chair and center console used in the episode was donated by a fan who had recreated a life size version of the bridge. The turbolift alcove and one of the stations was built on-set (and re-used in the DS9 episode "Trials and Tribbleations"). Everything else was made up of footage from the original series that was looped.

Symbiosis - S1-E22

Trivia: Near the end of the episode, Picard and Crusher walk out of the cargo bay. As the doors close behind them, you can see Tasha Yar waving to the camera from inside the bay. Her character is killed in the next episode, but this one was filmed second. The actress was waving goodbye to all of her fans.

The Game - S5-E6

Trivia: During a scene in Ten Forward with Wesley and Robin, in the background you can see a crew member in a blue uniform playing the game. This is actor Brent Spiner, minus his Data makeup.

Trivia: The transporter was first created by Gene Roddenberry in 1966 for the original Star Trek, as an easier (and cheaper) alternative to get members of the Enterprise crew onto a planet's surface, instead of having the ship land on the planet each time. The same holds true here. Even the original version was based on a similar effect in the movie Forbidden Planet.

Hollow Pursuits - S3-E21

Trivia: The test objects that O' Brien uses on the malfunctioning transporter are U.S. Navy sonar buoy transport cases.

Unification (2) - S5-E8

Trivia: Because of guest star Leonard Nimoy's schedule, this episode was filmed before part one.

Half a Life - S4-E22

Trivia: One of the computer readouts that Dr. Timicin studies in Engineering has the numeric code "4077". This is a reference to David Ogden Stiers' earlier role on the series M*A*S*H.

Cubs Fan

Trivia: The transporter system in the Star Trek universe uses a Heisenberg compensator. This is to counter Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, which pretty much eliminated the potential for transporters, given Heisenberg's assertion that it would be impossible to re-assemble all the components of an item transported.
