Did You Know?
While there were negotiations to sell Star Trek: The Next Generation
(1987) to one of the major television networks, it was ultimately decided to air the series in syndication, as that was how the original Star Trek
(1966) ultimately found success. In addition, Gene Roddenberry
maintained resentment over network interference with the original series, as well as other attempted series, and wanted to work independently from the networks. See more
Very often star streaks are seen backward. Ignoring tunneling (something that would have been hard to do in the late 80's) when moving faster than light speed stars would look streaked as depicted, but they would be blue as you approach the star and red after you pass. Sometimes this is depicted correctly but others it is seen the other way around. See more
