Star Trek was a sci-fi game changer, but The Next Generation was the series that proved the franchise could have a life beyond Captain Kirk. As our Matt Zoller Seitz says of Next Generation in TV: The Book, which he co-authored with Alan Sepinwall: “The series continued the original’s legacy while deepening its multicultural vision and fleshing out every character with a novelistic attention to detail. The result was a milestone in televised science-fiction.” Seven seasons, 133 hours.
