Star Trek: The Next Generation 30th Anniversary
From 1987 to 1994, Star Trek™: The Next Generation built upon the spirit of The Original Series by updating the themes to reflect its time. Even today, Trekkies remain as dedicated as ever to it, with a stellar cast of characters and gripping episodes such as "The Best of Both Worlds," which included one of the most memorable antagonists of all time: the Borg.

The formidable Borg pose one of the greatest threats to the Federation. They are uncompromising in their desire for "perfection," which drives their single-minded pursuit to assimilate new worlds, technologies and people - including, briefly, Captain Jean-Luc Picard himself!

The Enterprise is commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard and is staffed by first officer Commander William Riker, second officer/operations manager Data, security chief Tasha Yar, ship's counselor Deanna Troi, chief medical officer Dr. Beverly Crusher, conn officer Lieutenant Geordi La Forge, and junior officer Lieutenant Worf. The death of Lieutenant Yar in the series' first season prompts an internal shuffle of personnel, making Worf official chief of security. Geordi La Forge is promoted to chief engineer at the beginning of season 2.

We are the Borg. You will be assimilated.
Borg Captures Enterprise Silver Proof in BoxThe Borg made their debut in the 1989 episode "Q Who?", in which Q tests Picard by "arranging" a first contact in the uncharted Delta Quadrant. The U.S.S. Enterprise crew is quick to learn that these cybernetic beings are unlike anything they've ever encountered. For example, the Borg adapt almost instantly to any weaponry; their ominous cube ship repairs itself; and they are intent on absorbing new technology for the betterment of the Collective (and, they believe, the betterment of the assimilated beings).

This hive-mind collective represents the threat of conformity and underscores the importance of diversity and individuality, which is an underlying theme throughout the Star Trek™ mythos. And while a single cube vessel often spells instant doom, Picard survives his assimilation as Locutus of Borg - but with long-term consequences for his character and the Star Trek™ franchise.

Star Trek Borg Captures Enterprise $20 Silver ObverseNext Generation Fun Facts
 - In the seventh-season episode "Lower Decks," Ensign Sam Lavelle tries to ingratiate himself with Commander Riker but mistakenly believes Riker is Canadian (Riker states he's from Alaska).
 - The series introduced a number of memorable characters and species, including the Borg, the Ferengi, and the Cardassians.
 - The Borg made six appearances in Star Trek™: The Next Generation, including their debut in the second-season episode "Q Who?"
 - Once the Borg have assimilated Picard, he is designated as Locutus. It is a fitting name given his intended role as an intermediary, since "Locutus" comes from a Latin word for "spoken."
 - Although we know them as a collection of thousands of different species, the Borg's origins are never fully explained. In "Q Who?," Guinan mentions that they are comprised of "organic and artificial life" and have been steadily evolving for "thousands of centuries."

Many fans contend the Borg's most memorable appearance is in the award-winning third-season finale, "The Best of Both Worlds." One of the series' most popular episodes, the cliff-hanger ending includes the shocking image of Picard as an assimilated Borg drone.

Fun Facts About the Starship U.S.S. Enterprise!
    - Two models of Enterprise were used throughout the series' production: an 11-foot studio model and a smaller "3-footer" used mostly for promotional shots.
    - The studio model was significantly modified eight times since its creation in 1964. The last alteration came in 1967 during the production process for the famous episode The Trouble With Tribbles.
    - Within the Star Trek universe's fictional timeline, Enterprise served as a Starfleet vessel for 40 years and achieved her greatest fame under the five-year command of Captain James Tiberius Kirk (famously portrayed by Canadian actor William Shatner).
    - Throughout the franchise's history, several incarnations of the ship were also named U.S.S. Enterprise. The Enterprise from The Original Series bears the (fictional) registration number NCC-1701, while subsequent Enterprise ships are distinguished by a different letter (e.g. NCC-1701-B).
    - A replica of Enterprise was erected in 1995 in Vulcan, Alberta, where the annual "Spock Days" draws Star Trek fans from around the world!

Celebrating Fifty Years of Star Trek!
Star Trek
is an American science fiction entertainment franchise created by Gene Roddenberry and under the ownership of CBS and Paramount. Star Trek: The Original Series and its live action TV spin-off shows, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise as well as the Star Trek film series make up the main canon, while the canonicity of Star Trek: The Animated Series is debated. The expansive library of Star Trek novels and comics whilst still part of the franchise, are generally considered non-canon.

The first series, now referred to as "The Original Series" or TOS, debuted in 1966 and ran for three seasons on NBC. It followed the interstellar adventures of James T. Kirk and the crew of the starship Enterprise, an exploration warship of a 23rd-century interstellar "United Federation of Planets". In creating the first "Star Trek", Roddenberry was inspired by Westerns such as Wagon Train, along with the Horatio Hornblower novels and Gulliver's Travels. These adventures continued in the short-lived Star Trek: The Animated Series and six feature films. Four spin-off television series were eventually produced: Star Trek: The Next Generation, followed the crew of a new starship Enterprise set a century after the original series; Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, set contemporaneously with The Next Generation; and Star Trek: Enterprise, set before the original series, in the early days of human interstellar travel. Four additional The Next Generation feature films were produced. In 2009, the film franchise underwent a relaunch with a prequel to the original series set in an alternate timeline titled simply Star Trek. This film featured a new cast portraying younger versions of the crew from the original Enterprise. A sequel to this film, Star Trek Into Darkness, premiered on May 16, 2013. A thirteenth theatrical feature, the next sequel to Into Darkness, has been confirmed for release in July 2016, to coincide with the franchise's 50th anniversary.

Star Trek has been a cult phenomenon for decades. Fans of the franchise are called Trekkies or Trekkers. The franchise spans a wide range of spin-offs including games, figurines, novels, toys, and comics. Star Trek had a themed attraction in Las Vegas which opened in 1998 and closed in September 2008. At least two museum exhibits of props travel the world. The series has its own full-fledged constructed language, Klingon. Several parodies have been made of Star Trek. Its fans, despite the end of Star Trek episodes on TV, have produced several fan productions to fill that void.

Star Trek is noted for its influence on the world outside of science fiction. It has been cited as an inspiration for several technological inventions such as the cell phone. Moreover, the show is noted for its progressive civil rights stances. The original series included one of television's first multiracial casts. Star Trek references can be found throughout popular culture from movies such as the submarine thriller Crimson Tide to the cartoon series South Park.
