If you enjoyed watching Star Trek: The Next Generation on television, get ready for the comics adventure you've been waiting for.
The stories took place throughout the television series, out of chronological order, telling unique tales which the writer was aiming to be seen as lost episodes, not working as prequels or sequels to existing episodes but each a stand alone story, and a character piece often centering on one or two characters. The apparently stand-alone stories were tied together with a story which began in the epilogue in the fifth issue and continued into the sixth issue.

Each issue of the series was available in at least three covers. The standard covers were either an art cover, produced by a variety of artists over the series, or a photomontage cover. Zach Howard produced covers for every issue which were used as more limited availability retail incentive covers for all but the third issue, which had a Howard cover produced, but was not released. Additionally each of the first three issues had a second retail incentive cover; a sketch cover, then an alternate art cover and for the third issue a different photo cover.
