  • Notes

    • The USS Stargazer was initially supposed to be a Constitution-class starship, allowing the crew to use the movie version of the original Enterprise in the series. This is why a model of a Constitution-class starship can be seen in Picard's ready room in early episodes. However, it was later decided to create a new model for the Stargazer, but by the time they did, a scene on the Stargazer's bridge had already been filmed with Geordi referring to the ship as "Constitution-class." Hence, the term "Constellation-class" was developed, which was similar enough to "Constitution-class" that they could re-dub the scene without reshooting. Also, Picard's Constitution-class model was replaced in later episodes with a model of the Constellation-class Stargazer.
