Journey’s End: The Saga of Star Trek – The Next Generation (1994)


Journey’s End: The Saga of Star Trek: The Next Generation was a television documentary, first broadcast the week of 15 May 1994, before the Star Trek: The Next Generation Viewers Choice Marathon.


Your destination: the 24th century. Your mission: to voyage where few have gone before – behind the scenes of Star Trek: The Next Generation! Join Jonathan Frakes, Next Generation’s Commander William Riker, for this fascinating chronicle of Gene Roddenberry’s beloved, Emmy Award-winning series.

You will explore the Enterprise, meet the show’s stars (and some villainous guest stars), learn special-effects secrets and makeup magic, and finally get the answer to that nagging question, “Where is the bathroom on the Enterprise?” Other highlights include a visit to a Star Trek convention, and a stop at the scoring stage to watch Marina Sirtis (Lt. Commander Deanna Troi) lead the orchestra in a recording session.

This programme concludes with a special look at the series’ thrilling final episode (“All Good Things . . .”) and a sneak peak at the crew’s movie debut, Star Trek: Generations. So set a course for an adventure like no other.
