The new Star Trek film may be a return to TOS, but the creative team behind the film are also fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation. TrekMovie.com asked the producer and the writers of the film to each share a quick thought on the show.
Damon Lindelof – producer
We aspire to do for Trek what Next Generation did twenty years ago — reinvigorate a timeless franchise for a brand new audience.
See below for what Orci and Kurtzman had to say about TNG.
Alex Kurtzman – co-writer, executive producer
TNG had the most sophisticated science fiction television, which was always seamlessly and miraculously interwoven with true character stories.
Roberto Orci – co-writers, executive producer
It’s still, to this day, my favorite show on television, ever. I discovered Trek through the Next Generation.
