Though he's gone on to co-starring roles in everything from Eureka to The Big Bang Theory, Wil Wheaton will always be known by his most famous role—Star Trek: The Next Generation's Wesley Crusher. But looking back at his time on Trek, Wheaton said there are a few things that missed the mark early on.

The biggest problem, according to Wheaton? The show's focus, which most fans would likely agree was somewhat scattershot in the early going. He told Ain't It Cool News he's still embarrassed for a few early low points, but is proud the series was able to survive long enough to find its footing later on:

We really struggled to figure out who we were and what we were about in the first year. I don't think anybody really knew. And the entire first, almost first two seasons have some incredible high points like "The Big Goodbye" and some really embarrassing low points like "Code of Honor." I'm really grateful that we were given the time to sort of find ourselves and figure out exactly what this show is about because by the time Next Generation gets to season 3, 4 or 5 I think its some of the best science fiction that's ever been on television.

What do you think of Wheaton's assessment? Agree, or disagree?
