When the world was a bigger place by thefirstfleet When the world was a bigger place by thefirstfleet
This is how it all began, with a man who dared to dream big. His name was Robert April, and all he wanted is a tall ship... and a star to steer her by. These are the first voyages of the Starship Enterprise...

No wonder, Matt Jeffries did tons of research to create the perfect shape.

His take on TNG was not too good. But with TOS, he was superb.

Sci-fi can be difficult, especially when you're breaking new ground.
The first two seasons were sort of a "shakedown cruise" but TNG really hit it's stride in season three.

The biggest problem with TNG was that it tried to be a family-friendly show. While TOS was almost hard-sci-fi by the day's standards, TNG often became a parody of itself, wich Picard ordering the children to safer decks, and so on. The arrival of the Borg changed things, and for the positive. What I missed in TNG was that they never continued the "Conspiracy" arc, with the alien parasites. That episode was freakin' scary!

That was Roddenberry trying to appeal to a broader audience without compromising his storytelling.
Hard sci-fi makes most people feel a little stupid (because they are) and so does not sell as well but, by the end of season two, they were flying straight and level.
