Worf: Deanna, how do you know so much about this period in Earth’s history?
Deanna: My father used to read me stories from the Ancient West when I was a little girl. I must admit, I always wanted to play the part of the Mysterious Stranger.

1987, Star Trek TNG hair/make up/wardrobe tests before filming the pilot. Good job they changed LaForge and Troi’s hair!

“'The Offspring' was a great spec script, except it was, at first, barely about our people. It was really about a very brand-new, exciting female android that Data created out of his own image, and it was all about her. And I said, 'That's great. But it can't be about the guest star. It's got to be about one of our people. It's got to be about Data. It's not about Data's child as much as it is about how Data deals with being a parent. Everybody will be able to relate to that and empathize with the problems he has as a parent of a new child. Especially when that child is threatened by all sorts of outside forces.'”
—Michael Piller on The Offspring.
