In the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the Enterprise is led by Captain Jean-Luc Picard on its maiden quest to "boldly go where no man has gone before." The crew travels to the far reaches of space and encounters lost travelers, mysteries galaxies and the entity only known as Q. Along the way, they must help one of their own who is taken prisoner by a force that survives of the suffering of others. Picard faces his competency as a captain while dealing with the loss of a crew member and must discover the intentions of the Federation as the Enterprise is sent to confront the Romulans in the Neutral Zone. Stand out episodes include "Datalore", which takes a look at Datas' home world. And "Skin of Evil", where the crew must save Troi from an alien planet after her shuttle crashes.
