I think this page is named wrong — should be Star Trek/The Next Generation to match all the other Trek pages? That's also what ST:TNG redirects to.

That's wrong, though. The official name of the series is Star Trek: The Next Generation. The other Trek franchises didn't repeat the "Star Trek" appellation in their names, which is why I didn't include it. DrGaellon (talk | contribs) 19:21, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Hmm, what's your source on that (that the other series didn't include "Star Trek" in the names)? Paramount's official site and IMDB both list them all (except for the Original Series) as Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, etc. The only exception I know of is Star Trek: Enterprise, which started out just Enterprise and then changed after season 3. I think we should probably be using the full version of the series names.--Penknife 14:30, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, Enterprise was the first series not to use Star Trek in the title. But in terms of aesthetics, I think Star Trek/The Next Generation, etc., would look better. In any case, as it stands now, TNG is the only subpage with the prefix Star Trek:, which is inaccurate--Æthel 22:44, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

I haven't read either of the crossover stories mentioned, but Fanlore calling them perhaps the best and amazing seems a bit... can we link to specific recs or awards or so forth? -- Kdcat 21:23, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I was never a participant, but as someone who stumbled over the archive, there seemed to be a fair amount of Picard/Q and a smaller amount of Picard/Westley going on. Anyone who was associated with that who can confirm or deny? --Betty 04:53, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

seminal Data

The Questor Tapes by Gene Roddenberry as the seed of Data? "The original version of Data appeared thirteen years earlier in "The Questor Tapes." The 1974 made-for-TV movie was a 95 minute pilot for a television series, staring Robert Foxworth in the title role. "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry and "Star Trek" writer Gene L. Coon wrote the story. Questor was a robot created by a super-species which cared for humanity. His job was to help humanity make the correct decisions through subtle interactions."
