USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D in the Star Trek canon
Also known as Enterprise-D, the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D is a starship under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart). It is the main setting of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987–1994) and the film Star Trek Generations (1994). The starship has also appeared in the pilots of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) and Star Trek: Picard (2020), and in the finale of Star Trek: Enterprise (2005). Aside from TV series and movies, it has also been depicted in books and licensed products.
Star Trek: The Next Generation occurs in the 24th century, 78 years after the adventures of Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and the starship Enterprise in Star Trek: The Original Series (1966-1969). While Captain Kirk led a five-year mission, Captain Picard and his crew went for a mission of at least 10 years, so in order to sustain such a journey, Andrew Probert’s Enterprise-D updates Matt Jefferies’ iconic 1960s Enterprise design, creating a new starship that is twice as long, eight times the volume, and include the crew’s families.
Enterprise-D also has brighter, less militaristic, and more refined interfaces than the original Enterprise, as Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry wanted Enterprise-D to depict a harmony between science and quality of life.
