Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Jeffrey Combs auditioned for the role of William T. Riker, and later went on to play roles in [Star Trek: Deep Space Nine], [Star Trek: Voyager] and [Enterprise].
  • The character of Geordi LaForge was originally conceived as Jamaican. When LeVar Burton was cast in the role, this was dropped, although a Jamaican actress (Madge Sinclair) later appeared as LaForge's mother.
  • Data's cat "Spot" is a male throughout the history of the show, but is suddenly female in the episode {Force of Nature}, and in the episode {Genesis} gives birth to kittens.
  • In the episode {Sub Rosa}, names on the tombstones include "Vader" and "McFly".
  • The number 47 pops up an inordinate amount of times on computer screens, serial numbers, dates and so on. This tradition was started by writer/coproducer Joe Menosky and was soon picked up by the rest of the production team. Menosky said that he choose that particular number because when he was a graduate student at Pomona College, Professor of Mathematics [?] Donald Bentley proved as a joke that all numbers are equal to 47.
  • Lieutenant Reginald Barclay, an Enterprise engineer, has the full name of Reginald Endicott Barclay III, according to the scripts of his episodes. This is a homage to the TV series [Benson] which had a character named Clayton Endicott III (played by Rene Auberjonois, who would later play Constable Odo in [Star Trek: Deep Space Nine]).
  • Lt. Worf is the longest-running character in the history of [Star Trek]. He appeared in all seven seasons of [Star Trek: The Next Generation], four seasons (starting with the fourth), of [Star Trek: Deep Space Nine], and all four Next Generation films. In addition, Michael Dorn played Col. Worf, the attorney defending Kirk and McCoy, in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
  • When the cast decided to lobby for a salary increase, actor Wil Wheaton's first offer from the producers was to instead have his character's rank raised to Lieutenant. His response was, "So what should I tell my landlord when I can't pay my rent? 'Don't worry, I just made Lieutenant'?"
  • Running for seven seasons, the show briefly held the record for longest-running American live-action science fiction TV series (though several fantasy series ran longer). It was soon tied by its spin-offs [Star Trek: Deep Space Nine] and [Star Trek: Voyager]. In 2002, the record was taken by [The X Files] which ended after nine seasons.
