The Next Generation


On September 26, 1987, the first episode of “Star Trek – The Next Generation” aired in the U.S. That was when most people were introduced to Jonathan Frakes, the actor who played Will Riker, the first officer of the Enterprise D. Frakes will be coming to Pensacola this month as part of Pensacon 2019.

29 years ago, when Star Trek: The Next Generation debuted, one of the most popular characters was Lt Worf, the first Klingon Officer to serve in Star Fleet. He was played by actor Michael Dorn, who went on to reprise the character on the series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and in several movies.
