(written from a Production point of view)
The special featured Marina Sirtis in the role of Counselor Deanna Troi who was seen on the bridge of the USS Enterprise-D studiously viewing clips from The Original Series, Star Trek VI, and earlier Star Trek films as though they were recordings from the computer's historical archive. These events were set at a time subsequent to "Unification II" as Troi's interest in the Kirk-era Enterprise crew had been piqued by the crew's recent encounter with Spock on Romulus.
It also featured interviews with actors from Star Trek VI and was written by Larry Young and Rick Austin. Shot on the Enterprise-D bridge set over one day and directed by Robert Legato, post-production took place over the 1991 Thanksgiving weekend. The biographies and graphics seen in the special were created by Guy Vardaman.
