The Stars of TNG: Then And Now [PHOTOS]

“Star Trek: The Next Generation” hit the syndicated television airwaves back in September of 1987 with the series premiere “Encounter at Farpoint”. Nearly 30 years after the show’s debut, most of the cast remain close friends with a love for each other that is evident during on-stage convention appearances around the world.

The show, which ran for seven seasons, would receive 18 Emmy Awards, two Hugo Awards, five Saturn Awards and a Peabody Award.

In the gallery below, see the crew of the Enterprise-D: Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, Denise Crosby, Michael Dorn, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner, John de Lancie and Wil Wheaton as they appeared during TNG’s first season and as they do today.

As a reminder, all seven seasons of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” are now available in high-definition on Blu-ray and streaming on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and iTunes.

    Patrick Stewart still looks great. And he’s working.

    Remember: Wigs, prosthetics and heavy TV makeup are all missing from the “now” photos.

      Yes, but most of the human characters didn’t age well.

  • Conrad Stonebanks

    I remember I was a bit shocked when I saw the TOS gang in TMP. And it was only 10 years in their case. For most mortals, after the makeup (or photoshop) comes off, that’s what time does to us.

    And since we are swimming in those kinds of water, it would be nice to see staff pictures of today and 30 years ago, just to see if they have aged better than the TNG bunch :p

    Michael Dorn still looks confused.
