10 Awesome Things That Happened at the Star Trek: The Next Generation 25th Anniversary Reunion



[View All on One Page]

In 1987, Star Trek re-launched the franchise with a whole new series, Star Trek: The Next Generation. Not only did TNG show us the next generation of characters in the Star Trek saga, it brought in the next generation of Star Trek fans who would grow up with the series. I was just a little kid sitting on the couch between my original-Trekker parents when the show premiered. I never imagined that, twenty-five years later, I would be in the room with the entire cast as they reminisced about their TNG experiences at Grand Slam XVIII. Here are some of the best moments from the reunion.

AshleyRose Sullivan is a writer and artist. She’s watching all of Star Trek in a year and chronicling the adventure on her blog, My Year Of Star Trek.

    1) One bad thing about the reunion: I wasn’t there *sob*.
    2) Is that a FruitF***er shirt that Wil is wearing?

    I remember the first time Star Trek had a 25 year anniversary… now I feel old.

    Excuse me while I go cry somewhere. Such an important show and time in my life when it aired.

    Excuse me for a few moments. My inner Gargoyles fan has to spend a while laughing maniacally at a Marina Sirtis-Macbeth connection.

    I really got teary eyed just by reading short sentences by random Star Trek pictures. Man, i have feelings for TNG.

    Why didn’t they ask CBS to do a new show? They actually own the brand.

    indeed and knowing Wil, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was his own personal shirt.

    Right now, I think the only person they’d consider for a new Star Trek series is JJ Abrams himself. Hopefully someday, that’ll happen!

    I cried a bit at the last slide/picture. “All Good Things…” is one of the best series finales ever written, if only that it’s message was spot on for what the series ending would mean for the audience while still staying true to the characters and setting. It’s strange to me how a quarter-century old TV show older than I am can tug heartstrings that may remain dormant around even family. Must be that I’ve been watching the show since I was able to lift my head.

    I had to make my roommate pause the show we’re watching so I could tell her about the reboot idea of Wil Wheaton as Will Riker. I love this show so much.
