Star Trek itself is 50 years old, and the second TV series The Next Generation is 30. The show was supposed to capitalize on Star Trek mania years after the original series, but improve the stories with a real budget for special effects and decent acting. And it was a real improvement, up to a point. However, looking back from the present, we can tell that TNG had its own faults multiplied by the many years it ran.
In their latest Honest Trailer, Screen Junkies explores the many tropes, catch phrases, and repetitive scenes the show relied on as it entered yet another year of feeding our Star Trek addiction. There's plenty to work with here. Just like the original series, TNG was fun while it lasted, and is pretty funny to look back on now.
