Trekkies and other nerds use TNG to refer to "Star Trek: The Next Generation." Airing from 1987 to 1994, TNG spearheaded a Star Trek revival that has yet to completely fade away.
Expanding upon the original Star Trek series (known as TOS), TNG told the story of Captain Picard and the crew of a new starship Enterprise. Their continuing mission was to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no one had gone before. Picard and crew pursued their mission of exploration throughout seven seasons and several related spin-offs, before passing the torch to the next next generation.
