    So I am completely new to the star Trek universe and know very little about it. Iw ant to start watching the Next Generation version of Star Trek, but I don't know if I should just jump into season 1 of next generation, or if I should start with one of the movies so that I know what is going on. Help please!

    I would start with season 1 and watch all of The Next Generation (seasons 1-7) before going on to the movies. The movies (Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, and Nemesis) take up after TNG when off the air. I think that you will enjoy Next Generation. Have Fun watching.

    Id agree with Skeeter, now that the show has ended youd be best served starting at the beginning and watching them in order. Ive done this three times... yep Im a trekkie... Im currently on my fourth viewing. If you are in the UK youd just have missed Virgin TV starting from episode 1 about 2-3 mths ago, which Ive been following religiously. Excellent show, though the first two seasons/series arent that great productionwise, but there are a few gems in there!

    I originally started watching TNG during its fifth year and picked up the first 4 years when BBC2 repeated them. A similar thing happened with DS9 when i started to watch it when Worf joined.

    I would watch it from the start though, forget some of the duds in the first couple of years, your patience will be well deserved!
