The series set in the 24th century, from the year 2364 to 2370, are about the adventures of a new space-faring crew on board the new Starship USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D), the fifth Federation vessel to bear the name. The story takes place about 70 years after the final missions of the original Enterprise crew under the command of James T. Kirk (approximately 85 years after The Original Series itself).

The Klingon Empire and the United Federation of Planets have become galactic allies, while more sinister enemies like the Romulans and the Borg are the priority to fight. The Enterprise is commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), and the crew includes: first officer Commander William Riker (Jonathan Frakes), the android Lieutenant Commander Data (Brent Spiner), security chief Lieutenant Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby), Klingon tactical officer Lieutenant Worf (Michael Dorn), Doctor Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) and conn officer Lieutenant Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton).

The death of Lieutenant Yar in the show's first season generated an internal shift of personnel, making Worf official chief of security while Geordi La Forge was promoted to chief engineer at the beginning of season 2.

The series aired from September 28, 1987 to May 23, 1994; for 7 seasons and featuring 178 episodes; and it is the first and only, syndicated television show to be nominated for the Emmy for Best Dramatic Series.
