Beam aboard the "Galaxy Class" Starship Enterprise for the classic feature-length premiere episode of the acclaimed TV series, Star Trek: The Next Generation.

While on a peace keeping mission to the Farpoint station, the Enterprise is overtaken by a godlike adversary, Q, who places the crew on trial for crimes perpetrated by mankind.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) has just 24 hours to convince Q that humans are not a "grievously savage race." If Picard fails, he and his crew must face Q's sentence: death.
