Then my friend Brent Spiner, who was in the series, had a sign made that he had somebody stick on the front door of my trailer which said: ‘Beware. Unknown British Shakespearean actor.’ ”. More than 20 million people tuned in to the two-hour pilot of “Next Generation” when the series premiered on Sept. 28, 1987. And faster than warp speed, Stewart became a sensation at the age of 47.
