(written from a Production point of view)
Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion was a CD-ROM which included scripts and television trailers for every episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Each episode was also accompanied by a summary and behind-the-scenes information written by Larry Nemecek, originally included in the book of the same name. The text throughout the content of the database was programmed to search for the word clicked upon, and also housed a separate search field which included the entire contents of the disc. Majel Barrett provided the voice of the computer, which was designed in a standard LCARS display. The Companion was later included as part of the Star Trek: Federation Gift Pak.
