Star Trek
Star Trek
is an American media franchise based on the science fiction television series created by Gene Roddenberry. The first television series, simply called Star Trek
Star Trek
and now referred to as "The Original Series", debuted in 1966 and aired for three seasons on the television network NBC. It followed the interstellar adventures of Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and his crew aboard the starship USS Enterprise, a space exploration vessel, built by the United Federation of Planets in the twenty-third century. The Star Trek
Star Trek
canon of the franchise includes The Original Series, an animated series, five spin-off television series, the film franchise, and further adaptations in several media. In creating Star Trek, Roddenberry was inspired by the Horatio Hornblower novels, the satirical book Gulliver's Travels, and by works of western genre such as the television series Wagon Train. These adventures continued in the 22-episode Star Trek: The Animated Series and six feature films. Four spin-off television series were eventually produced: Star Trek: The Next Generation followed the crew of a new starship Enterprise set a century after the original series; Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager set contemporaneously with The Next Generation; and Star Trek: Enterprise set before the original series in the early days of human interstellar travel. The most recent Star Trek
Star Trek
TV series, entitled Star Trek: Discovery, premiered on CBS
CBS
and later made available exclusively on the digital platform CBS
CBS
All Access. The adventures of The Next Generation crew continued in four additional feature films. In 2009, the film franchise underwent a "reboot" set in an alternate timeline, or "Kelvin Timeline," entitled simply Star Trek. This film featured a new cast portraying younger versions of the crew from the original show; their adventures were continued in the sequel film, Star Trek
Star Trek
Into Darkness (2013). The thirteenth film feature and sequel, Star Trek Beyond (2016), was released to coincide with the franchise's 50th anniversary. Star Trek
Star Trek
has been a cult phenomenon for decades.[1] Fans of the franchise are called Trekkies or Trekkers. The franchise spans a wide range of spin-offs including games, figurines, novels, toys, and comics. Star Trek
Star Trek
had a themed attraction in Las Vegas that opened in 1998 and closed in September 2008. At least two museum exhibits of props travel the world. The series has its own full-fledged constructed language, Klingon. Several parodies have been made of Star Trek. In addition, viewers have produced several fan productions. As of July 2016, the franchise had generated $10 billion in revenue,[2] making Star Trek
Star Trek
one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time. Star Trek
Star Trek
is noted for its cultural influence beyond works of science fiction.[3] The franchise is also noted for its progressive civil rights stances.[4] The Original Series included one of television's first multiracial casts. Star Trek

references may be found throughout popular culture from movies such as the submarine thriller Crimson Tide to the animated series South Park.

Background Conception and setting

emblem as seen in the franchise.

As early as 1964, Gene Roddenberry
Gene Roddenberry
drafted a proposal for the science-fiction series that would become Star Trek. Although he publicly marketed it as a Western in outer space—a so-called "Wagon Train to the Stars"[5]—he privately told friends that he was modeling it on Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, intending each episode to act on two levels: as a suspenseful adventure story and as a morality tale.[6] Most Star Trek
Star Trek
stories depict the adventures of humans[Note 1] and aliens who serve in Starfleet, the space-borne humanitarian and peacekeeping armada of the United Federation of Planets. The protagonists have altruistic values, and must apply these ideals to difficult dilemmas. Many of the conflicts and political dimensions of Star Trek
Star Trek
represent allegories of contemporary cultural realities. Star Trek: The Original Series addressed issues of the 1960s,[7] just as later spin-offs have reflected issues of their respective decades. Issues depicted in the various series include war and peace, the value of personal loyalty, authoritarianism, imperialism, class warfare, economics, racism, religion, human rights, sexism, feminism, and the role of technology.[8] Roddenberry stated: "[By creating] a new world with new rules, I could make statements about sex, religion, Vietnam, politics, and intercontinental missiles. Indeed, we did make them on Star Trek: we were sending messages and fortunately they all got by the network."[9] "If you talked about purple people on a far off planet, they (the TV network) never really caught on. They were more concerned about cleavage. They actually would send a censor down to the set to measure a woman's cleavage to make sure too much of her breast wasn't showing"[10] Roddenberry intended the show to have a progressive political agenda reflective of the emerging counter-culture of the youth movement, though he was not fully forthcoming to the networks about this. He wanted Star Trek
Star Trek
to show humanity what it might develop into, if it would learn from the lessons of the past, most specifically by ending violence. An extreme example is the alien species, the Vulcans, who had a violent past but learned to control their emotions. Roddenberry also gave Star Trek
Star Trek
an anti-war message and depicted the United Federation of Planets as an ideal, optimistic version of the United Nations.[11] His efforts were opposed by the network because of concerns over marketability, e.g., they opposed Roddenberry's insistence that Enterprise have a racially diverse crew.[12] Mythology The central trio of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy from Star Trek: The Original Series was modeled on classical mythological storytelling.[13] William Shatner
William Shatner
said: "There is a mythological component [to pop culture], especially with science fiction. It's people looking for answers – and science fiction offers to explain the inexplicable, the same as religion tends to do... If we accept the premise that it has a mythological element, then all the stuff about going out into space and meeting new life – trying to explain it and put a human element to it – it's a hopeful vision. All these things offer hope and imaginative solutions for the future."[14] Richard Lutz wrote: "The enduring popularity of Star Trek
Star Trek
is due to the underlying mythology which binds fans together by virtue of their shared love of stories involving exploration, discovery, adventure and friendship that promote an egalitarian and peace loving society where technology and diversity are valued rather than feared and citizens work together for the greater good. Thus Star Trek
Star Trek
offers a hopeful vision of the future and a template for our lives and our society that we can aspire to."[15] History and production

In early 1964, Roddenberry presented a brief treatment for a proposed Star Trek
Star Trek
TV series to Desilu Productions
Desilu Productions
comparing it to Wagon Train, "a Wagon Train

to the stars."[16] Desilu
Desilu
worked with Roddenberry to develop the treatment into a script, which was then pitched to NBC.[17] NBC
NBC
paid to make a pilot, "The Cage", starring Jeffrey Hunter
Jeffrey Hunter
as Enterprise Captain Christopher Pike. NBC
NBC
rejected The Cage, but the executives were still impressed with the concept, and made the unusual decision to commission a second pilot: "Where No Man Has Gone Before".[17] The first regular episode ("The Man Trap") of Star Trek: The Original Series aired on Thursday, September 8, 1966 in the US.[18][Note 2] While the show initially enjoyed high ratings, the average rating of the show at the end of its first season dropped to 52nd out of 94 programs. Unhappy with the show's ratings, NBC
NBC
threatened to cancel the show during its second season.[19] The show's fan base, led by Bjo Trimble, conducted an unprecedented letter-writing campaign, petitioning the network to keep the show on the air.[19][20] NBC renewed the show, but moved it from primetime to the "Friday night death slot", and substantially reduced its budget.[21] In protest Roddenberry resigned as producer and reduced his direct involvement in Star Trek, which led to Fred Freiberger becoming producer for the show's third and final season.[Note 3] Despite another letter-writing campaign, NBC
NBC
cancelled the series after three seasons and 79 episodes.[17] Rebirth After the original series was cancelled, Paramount Studios, which had bought the series from Desilu, licensed the broadcast syndication rights to help recoup the production losses. Reruns began in the fall of 1969 and by the late 1970s the series aired in over 150 domestic and 60 international markets. This helped Star Trek
Star Trek
develop a cult following greater than its popularity during its original run.[22] One sign of the series' growing popularity was the first Star Trek convention which occurred on January 21–23, 1972 in New York City. Although the original estimate of attendees was only a few hundred, several thousand fans turned up. Star Trek
Star Trek
fans continue to attend similar conventions worldwide.[23] The series' newfound success led to the idea of reviving the franchise.[24] Filmation

Paramount Television
produced the first post original series show, Star Trek: The Animated Series. It ran on NBC
NBC
for 22 half-hour episodes over two seasons on Saturday mornings from 1973 to 1974.[25] Although short-lived, typical for animated productions in that time slot during that period, the series garnered the franchise's only "Best Series" Emmy Award
Emmy Award
as opposed to the franchise's later technical ones. Paramount Pictures
Paramount Pictures
and Roddenberry began developing a new series, Star Trek: Phase II, in May 1975 in response to the franchise's newfound popularity. Work on the series ended, however, when the proposed Paramount Television
Paramount Television
Service folded. Following the success of the science fiction movies Star Wars
Star Wars
and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Paramount adapted the planned pilot episode of Phase II into the feature film Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The film opened in North America on December 7, 1979, with mixed reviews from critics. The film earned $139 million worldwide, below expectations but enough for Paramount to create a sequel. The studio forced Roddenberry to relinquish creative control of future sequels. The success of the critically acclaimed sequel, Star Trek
Star Trek
II: The Wrath of Khan, reversed the fortunes of the franchise. While the sequel grossed less than the first movie, The Wrath of Khan's lower production costs made it net more profit. Paramount produced six Star Trek feature films between 1979 and 1991. In response to the popularity of Star Trek
Star Trek
feature films, the franchise returned to television with Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) in 1987. Paramount chose to distribute it as a first-run syndication show rather than a network show.[26] After Roddenberry Following Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Roddenberry's role was changed from producer to creative consultant with minimal input to the films while being heavily involved with the creation of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Roddenberry died on October 24, 1991, giving executive producer Rick Berman control of the franchise.[27][28] Star Trek had become known to those within Paramount as "the franchise", because of its great success and recurring role as a tent pole for the studio when other projects failed.[29] TNG had the highest ratings of any Star Trek
Star Trek
series and became the #1 syndicated show during the last years of its original seven-season run.[30] In response to TNG's success, Paramount released a spin-off series Deep Space Nine in 1993. While never as popular as TNG, the series had sufficient ratings for it to last seven seasons. In January 1995, a few months after TNG ended, Paramount released a fourth TV series, Voyager. Star Trek
Star Trek
saturation reached a peak in the mid-1990s with DS9 and Voyager airing concurrently and three of the four TNG-based feature films released in 1994, 1996, and 1998. By 1998, Star Trek
Star Trek
was Paramount's most important property; the enormous profits of "the franchise" funded much of the rest of the studio's operations.[31]:49–50,54 Voyager became the flagship show of the new United Paramount Network (UPN) and thus the first major network Star Trek series since the original.[32] After Voyager ended, UPN
UPN
produced Enterprise, a prequel TV series to the original show. Enterprise did not enjoy the high ratings of its predecessors and UPN
UPN
threatened to cancel it after the series' third season. Fans launched a campaign reminiscent of the one that saved the third season of the Original Series. Paramount renewed Enterprise for a fourth season,[33] but moved it to the Friday night death slot.[34] Like the Original Series, Enterprise ratings dropped during this time slot, and UPN
UPN
cancelled Enterprise at the end of its fourth season. Enterprise aired its final episode on May 13, 2005.[35] Fan groups, "Save Enterprise", attempted to save the series[36] and tried to raise $30 million to privately finance a fifth season of Enterprise.[36] Though the effort garnered considerable press, the fan drive failed to save the series. The cancellation of Enterprise ended an eighteen-year continuous production run of Star Trek
Star Trek
programming on television. The poor box office performance in 2002 of the film Nemesis, cast an uncertain light upon the future of the franchise. Paramount relieved Berman, the franchise producer, of control of Star Trek. Reboot Paramount turned down several proposals in the mid-2000s to restart the franchise. These included pitches from film director Bryan Singer,[37] Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski,[38] and Trek actors Jonathan Frakes
Jonathan Frakes
and William Shatner.[39] The studio also turned down an animated web series.[40] Instead, Paramount hired a new creative team to reinvigorate the franchise in 2007. Writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman
Alex Kurtzman
and Lost producer, J. J. Abrams, had the freedom to reinvent the feel of Trek. The team created the franchise's eleventh film, entitled simply Star Trek, releasing it in May 2009. The film featured a new cast portraying the crew of the original show. Star Trek
Star Trek
was a prequel of the original series set in an alternate timeline, known as the "Kelvin Timeline". This gave the film and future sequels to it freedom from the need to conform to the franchise's canonical timeline. The eleventh Star Trek
Star Trek
film's marketing campaign targeted non-fans, even stating in the film's advertisements that "this is not your father's Star Trek".[41] The film earned considerable critical and financial success, grossing (in inflation-adjusted dollars) more box office sales than any previous Star Trek
Star Trek
film.[42] The plaudits include the franchise's first Academy Award
Academy Award
(for makeup). The film's major cast members are contracted for two sequels.[43] Paramount's sequel to the 2009 film, Star Trek
Star Trek
Into Darkness, premiered in Sydney, Australia, on April 23, 2013, but the film did not release in the United States until May 17, 2013.[44] While the film was not as successful in the North American box office as its predecessor, internationally, in terms of box office receipts, Into Darkness was the most successful of the franchise.[45] A thirteenth film entitled Star Trek
Star Trek
Beyond was released on July 22, 2016.[46] The franchise returned to the small screen in the show Star Trek: Discovery.[47] CBS
CBS
announced a new premiere date of September 24, 2017, and that the season would be split into two chapters, with the first chapter consisting of eight episodes and being released through November 2017, and the second comprising the remaining seven episodes and beginning streaming in January 2018. This break gave more time to complete post-production on the second half of the season.[48] Television series Seven television series make up the bulk of the Star Trek

canceled the show after three seasons; the last original episode aired on June 3, 1969.[52][53] The petition near the end of the second season to save the show signed by many Caltech

students and its multiple Hugo nominations would, however, indicate that despite low Nielsen ratings, it was highly popular with science fiction fans and engineering students.[54] The series later became popular in reruns and found a cult following.[49]

The Animated Series (1973–74)

The Animated Series logo

Main article: Star Trek: The Animated Series Star Trek: The Animated Series, produced by Filmation, ran for two seasons from 1973 to 1974. Most of the original cast performed the voices of their characters from The Original Series, and many of the writers who worked on The Original Series, D. C. Fontana, David Gerrold, and Paul Schneider, wrote for the series. While the animated format allowed the producers to create more exotic alien landscapes and life forms, animation errors and liberal reuse of shots and musical cues have tarnished the series' reputation.[55] Although it was originally sanctioned by Paramount, which owned the Star Trek franchise following its acquisition of Desilu
Desilu
in 1967, Gene Roddenberry often spoke of TAS as non-canon.[56] Star Trek
Star Trek
writers have used elements of the animated series in later live-action series and films, and as of June 2007[update], TAS has references in the library section of the official Startrek.com web site officially bringing the series into the franchise's main canon. The Animated Series won Star Trek's first Emmy Award
Emmy Award
on May 15, 1975.[57] Star Trek: TAS briefly returned to television in the mid-1980s on the children's cable network Nickelodeon. Nickelodeon's Evan McGuire greatly admired the show and used its various creative components as inspiration for his short series called Piggly Wiggly Hears a Sound which never aired. Nickelodeon parent Viacom
Viacom
would purchase Paramount in 1994. In the early 1990s, the Sci-Fi Channel also began rerunning TAS. The complete TAS was also released on Laserdisc
Laserdisc
format during the 1980s.[58] The complete series was first released in the U.S. on eleven volumes of VHS tapes in 1989. All 22 episodes were released on DVD in 2006.

Star Trek
series and became the #1 syndicated show during the last few years of its original run, allowing it to act as a springboard for ideas in other series. Many relationships and races introduced in TNG became the basis of episodes in Deep Space 9 and Voyager.[30] During its run it earned several Emmy
Emmy
awards and nominations—including a nomination for Best Dramatic Series during its final season—two Hugo Awards and a Peabody Award
Peabody Award
for Outstanding Television Programming for the episode "The Big Goodbye".[60]

Main article: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, also known as "DS9", takes place during the last years and the immediate post-years of The Next Generation (2369–2375) and aired for seven seasons, debuting the week of January 3, 1993.[61] Like Star Trek: The Next Generation, it aired in syndication in the United States and Canada. Unlike the other Star Trek series, DS9 takes place primarily on a space station rather than aboard a starship. The show begins after the brutal Cardassian
Cardassian
occupation of the planet Bajor. The liberated Bajoran
Bajoran
people ask the United Federation of Planets to help run a Cardassian
Cardassian
built space station, Deep Space Nine, near Bajor. After the Federation takes control of the station, the protagonists of the show discover a uniquely stable wormhole that provides immediate access to the distant Gamma Quadrant making Bajor and the station one of the most strategically important locations in the galaxy.[62] The show chronicles the events of the station's crew, led by Commander (later Captain) Benjamin Sisko, played by Avery Brooks, and Major (later Colonel) Kira Nerys, played by Nana Visitor. Recurring plot elements include the repercussions of the Cardassian occupation of Bajor, Sisko's spiritual role for the Bajorans as the Emissary of the Prophets, and in later seasons a war with the Dominion. Deep Space Nine stands apart from earlier Trek series for its lengthy serialized storytelling, conflict within the crew, and religious themes—all elements that critics and audiences praised but Roddenberry forbade in the original series and The Next Generation.[63] Nevertheless, he was informed before his death of DS9, making this the last Star Trek
Star Trek
series connected to Gene Roddenberry.[64]

Voyager (1995–2001)

series.

Main article: Star Trek: Voyager Star Trek: Voyager ran for seven seasons, airing from January 16, 1995, to May 23, 2001, launching a new Paramount-owned television network, UPN. It features Kate Mulgrew
Kate Mulgrew
as Captain Kathryn Janeway,[65] the first female commanding officer in a leading role of a Star Trek series, and Commander Chakotay, played by Robert Beltran. Voyager takes place at about the same time period as Deep Space Nine and the years following that show's end (2371–2378). The premiere episode has the USS Voyager and its crew pursue a Maquis (Federation rebels) ship. Both ships become stranded in the Delta Quadrant about 70,000 light-years from Earth.[66] Faced with a 75-year voyage to Earth, the crew must learn to work together to overcome challenges on their long and perilous journey home while also seeking ways to shorten the voyage. Like Deep Space Nine, early seasons of Voyager feature more conflict between its crewmembers than seen in later episodes. Such conflict often arises from friction between "by-the-book" Starfleet
Starfleet
crew and rebellious Maquis fugitives forced by circumstance to work together on Voyager. Eventually, though, they settle their differences, after which the overall tone becomes more reminiscent of The Original Series. The starship Voyager, isolated from its home, faces new cultures and dilemmas not possible in shows based in the Alpha Quadrant. Later seasons, however, brought an influx of characters and cultures from prior shows, the Borg, Q, the Ferengi, Romulans, Klingons, Cardassians and cast members of The Next Generation.

Main article: Star Trek: Enterprise Star Trek: Enterprise, originally entitled Enterprise, is a prequel to the original Star Trek
Star Trek
series. It aired from September 26, 2001 to May 13, 2005.[67] Enterprise takes place in the 2150s, some 90 years after the events of Zefram Cochrane's first warp flight and about a decade before the founding of the Federation. The show centers on the voyages of Earth's first warp 5 capable starship, Enterprise, commanded by Captain Jonathan Archer
Jonathan Archer
(played by Scott Bakula), and the Vulcan Sub-Commander T'Pol
T'Pol
(played by Jolene Blalock). During the show's first two seasons, Enterprise featured self-contained episodes, like The Original Series, The Next Generation and Voyager. The third season consisted of one arc, "Xindi mission", which had a darker tone and serialized nature similar to that of Deep Space 9. Season 4 consisted of several mini-arcs composed of two to three episodes. The final season showed the origins of elements seen in earlier series, and it rectified and resolved some core continuity problems between the various Star Trek
Star Trek
series. Ratings for Enterprise started strong but declined rapidly. Although critics received the fourth season well, both fans and the cast reviled the series finale, partly because of the episode's focus on the guest appearance of members of The Next Generation cast.[68] The cancellation of Enterprise ended an 18-year run of back-to-back new Star Trek
Star Trek
shows beginning with The Next Generation in 1987.

before moving to CBS All Access,[48] while Netflix streams the show outside the United States and is also providing most of the show's funding.[70][71][72] The show centers on the voyages of the Discovery, commanded by Captain Gabriel Lorca

The Star Trek
Star Trek
media franchise is a multibillion-dollar industry, owned by CBS.[89] Gene Roddenberry

sold Star Trek

to NBC

as a classic adventure drama; he pitched the show as " Wagon Train

booklet on space produced after the Sputnik

flight in 1957.[90] The central trio of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy was modeled on classical mythological storytelling.[13] Star Trek
Star Trek
and its spin-offs have proven highly popular in syndication and are shown on TV stations worldwide.[91] The show's cultural impact goes far beyond its longevity and profitability. Star Trek
Star Trek
conventions have become popular among its fans, who call themselves "trekkies" or "trekkers". An entire subculture has grown up around the show[92] which was documented in the film Trekkies. Star Trek
Star Trek
was the highest-ranked cult show by TV Guide.[93] The franchise has also garnered many comparisons of the Star Wars
Star Wars
franchise being rivals in the science fiction genre with many fans and scholars.[94][95][96] The Star Trek
Star Trek
franchise inspired some designers of technologies, the Palm PDA and the handheld mobile phone.[97][98] Michael Jones, Chief technologist of Google Earth, has cited the tricorder's mapping capability as one inspiration in the development of Keyhole/Google Earth.[99] The Tricorder
Tricorder
X Prize, a contest to build a medical tricorder device was announced in 2012. Ten finalists were selected in 2014, and the winner was to be selected in January 2016. However, no team managed to reach the required criteria. Star Trek
Star Trek
also brought teleportation to popular attention with its depiction of "matter-energy transport", with the famously misquoted phrase "Beam me up, Scotty" entering the vernacular.[100] The Star Trek
Star Trek
replicator is credited in the scientific literature with inspiring the field of diatom nanotechnology.[101] In 1976, following a letter-writing campaign, NASA
NASA
named its prototype space shuttle Enterprise, after the fictional starship.[102] Later, the introductory sequence to Star Trek: Enterprise included footage of this shuttle which, along with images of a naval sailing vessel called Enterprise, depicted the advancement of human transportation technology. Additionally, some contend that the Star Trek
Star Trek
society resembles communism.[103][104] Beyond Star Trek's fictional innovations, its contributions to TV history included a multicultural and multiracial cast. While more common in subsequent years, in the 1960s it was controversial to feature an Enterprise crew that included a Japanese helmsman, a Russian navigator, a black female communications officer, and a human–Vulcan first officer. Captain Kirk's and Lt. Uhura's kiss, in the episode "Plato's Stepchildren", was also daring, and is often mis-cited as being American television's first scripted, interracial kiss, even though several other interracial kisses predated this one.[citation needed] In an interview Nichelle Nichols, who played the black female communications officer, said that the day after she told Roddenberry she planned to leave the show, she was at a fund-raiser at the NAACP and was told there was a big fan who wanted to meet her. Nichols said,

I thought it was a Trekkie, and so I said, 'Sure.' I looked across the room, and there was Dr. Martin Luther King
Martin Luther King
walking towards me with this big grin on his face. He reached out to me and said, 'Yes, Ms. Nichols, I am your greatest fan.' He said that Star Trek
Star Trek
was the only show that he, and his wife Coretta, would allow their three little children to stay up and watch. [She told King about her plans to leave the series.] I never got to tell him why, because he said, 'You can't. You're part of history.'

When she told Roddenberry what King had said, he cried.[105] Computer engineer and entrepreneur Steve Wozniak

conventions while in his youth as a source of inspiration for him co-founding Apple Inc.

in 1976, which would later become the world's largest information technology company by revenue and the world's third-largest mobile phone manufacturer.[106] Parodies Early TV comedy sketch parodies of Star Trek

continued the tradition in a sketch where Captain Kirk is played by a fellow Canadian Jim Carrey.[109] A feature-length film that indirectly parodies Star Trek
Star Trek
is Galaxy Quest. This film is based on the premise that aliens monitoring the broadcast of an Earth-based TV series called Galaxy Quest, modeled heavily on Star Trek, believe that what they are seeing is real.[110] Many Star Trek

actors have been quoted saying that Galaxy Quest

was a brilliant parody.[111][112] Star Trek

and Futurama
Futurama
television series and others have had many individual episodes parodying Star Trek
Star Trek
or with Trek allusions.[115] An entire series of films and novels from Finland entitled Star Wreck also parodies Star Trek.[116] In August 2010, the members of the Internal Revenue Service
Internal Revenue Service
created a Star Trek
Star Trek
themed training video for a conference. Revealed to the public in 2013, the spoof along with parodies of other media franchises was cited as an example of the misuse of taxpayer funds in a congressional investigation.[117][118] Star Trek
Star Trek
has been parodied in several non-English movies, including the German Traumschiff Surprise - Periode 1
Traumschiff Surprise - Periode 1
which features a gay version of The Original Series bridge crew and a Turkish film that spoofs that same series' episode "The Man Trap" in one of the series of films based on the character Turist Ömer.[citation needed] The Orville

that premiered on September 10, 2017.[119] MacFarlane has made references to Star Trek on his animated series Family Guy, where the Next Generation cast guest-starred in the episode "Not All Dogs Go to Heaven". Notable fan fiction Main article: Star Trek
Star Trek
fan productions Although Star Trek
Star Trek
has been off the air since 2005, CBS
CBS
and Paramount pictures have allowed fan-produced shows to be created. While not officially part of the Star Trek
Star Trek
universe, several veteran Star Trek actors, actresses, and writers have contributed their talents to many of these productions. While none of these films have been created for profit, several fan productions have turned to crowdfunding from sites, such as Kickstarter
Kickstarter
to help with production costs.[120] Two series set during the TOS time period are Star Trek
Star Trek
Continues and the Hugo award nominated Star Trek: Phase II. Another series, Star Trek: Hidden Frontier, takes place on the Briar Patch, a region of space introduced in Star Trek
Star Trek
Insurrection. It has had over 50 episodes produced, and has two spin-off series, Star Trek: Odyssey and Star Trek: The Helena Chronicles. Several standalone fan films have been created including Star Trek: Of Gods and Men. Future fan films include Star Trek: Axanar.[121] Audio only fan productions includes Star Trek: The Continuing Mission. Several fan film parodies have also been created. The original Star Trek
Star Trek
series is also notable for giving rise to slash fiction, a genre of fan-produced in-universe fiction where normally non-romantic same-sex characters are portrayed as being a romantic couple, notably "Kirk/Spock" stories. These began appearing in the early 1970s, generally written by female fans of the show.[122][123] Over the intervening decades, especially with the advent of the internet, slash fanfiction has become its own thriving fandom.[124][125] In 2016, Paramount and CBS
CBS
instituted strict fan guidelines on fan films. Notable guidelines include a maximum length of 15 minutes, a maximum fund limit of $50,000, and a ban on using individuals previously associated with Star Trek
Star Trek
productions.[126] This has shut down all of the highly publicized fan film productions ending what has been called a "golden age of amateur Star Trek
Star Trek
films".[127] Awards and honors Of the various science fiction awards for drama, only the Hugo Award dates back as far as the original series.[Note 11] In 1968, all five nominees for a Hugo Award
Hugo Award
were individual episodes of Star Trek, as were three of the five nominees in 1967.[51][Note 12] The only Star Trek series not even to get a Hugo nomination are the animated series and Voyager, though only the original series and Next Generation ever won the award. No Star Trek
Star Trek
feature film has ever won a Hugo, though a few were nominated. In 2008, the fan-made episode of Star Trek: New Voyages entitled "World Enough and Time" was nominated for the Hugo for Best Short Drama.[128] In 1996, TV Guide
TV Guide
picked the following as the ten best Star Trek episodes for the franchise's 30th anniversary.[129]

"The City on the Edge of Forever" (Original Series, April 6, 1967) "Amok Time" (Original Series, September 15, 1967) "Mirror, Mirror" (Original Series, October 6, 1967) "The Doomsday Machine" (Original Series, October 20, 1967) "Journey to Babel" (Original Series, November 17, 1967) "11001001" (The Next Generation, February 1, 1988) "Yesterday's Enterprise" (The Next Generation, February 19, 1990) "The Best of Both Worlds" (Part I) (The Next Generation, June 18, 1990) "Tapestry" (The Next Generation, February 15, 1993) "The Visitor" (Deep Space Nine, October 9, 1995)

The two Star Trek
Star Trek
series to win multiple Saturn awards
Saturn awards
during their run were The Next Generation (twice winning for best television series) and Voyager (twice winning for best actress – Kate Mulgrew and Jeri Ryan).[Note 13] The original series retroactively won a Saturn Award for best DVD release. Several Star Trek
Star Trek
films have won Saturns including categories best actor, actress, director, costume design, and special effects. However, Star Trek
Star Trek
has never won a Saturn for best make-up.[130] As for non science fiction specific awards, the Star Trek
Star Trek
series have won 31 Emmy
Emmy
Awards.[131] The eleventh Star Trek
Star Trek
film won the 2009 Academy Award
Academy Award
for Best Makeup and Hairstyling, the franchise's first Academy Award.[132] Corporate ownership At Star Trek's creation, Norway Productions, Roddenberry's production company, shared ownership with Desilu Productions
Desilu Productions
and, after Gulf+Western
Gulf+Western
acquired Desilu
Desilu
in 1967, with Paramount Pictures, the conglomerate's film studio. Paramount did not want to own the unsuccessful show; net profit was to be shared between Norway, Desilu/Paramount, Shatner, and NBC
NBC
but Star Trek
Star Trek
lost money, and the studio did not expect to syndicate it. In 1970 Paramount offered to sell all rights to Star Trek
Star Trek
to Roddenberry, but he could not afford the $150,000 cost (equivalent to $945,244 in 2017).[17] In 1989, Gulf+Western
Gulf+Western
renamed itself as Paramount Communications, and in 1994 merged with Viacom.[17] In 2005, Viacom
Viacom
divided into CBS Corporation, whose CBS
CBS
Television Studios subsidiary retained the Star Trek brand, and Viacom, whose Paramount Pictures
Paramount Pictures
subsidiary retained the Star Trek
Star Trek
film library and rights to make additional films, along with video distribution rights to the TV series on behalf of CBS.[133][17] See also

Notes

^ Members of the human species are occasionally called "Terrans" in Star Trek, although usage has been inconsistent. ^ However, the show had been first telecast two days earlier in Canada on the CTV Television Network
CTV Television Network
at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time. "Today's TV Previews", Montreal Gazette, September 6, 1966, p36 ^ Roddenberry did, however, co-author two scripts for the third season. ^ This count includes all planned episodes of Star Trek
Star Trek
Discovery through season one. it also includes the animated series, and the original pilot, "The Cage". Two-part episodes that were not originally aired at the same time are considered two separate episodes. Ten feature-length episodes were originally aired as two-hour presentations and are sometimes considered single episodes, however, in this count, they too are seen as two individual episodes. The Star Trek wiki Memory Alpha differs from the count listed because it includes the feature films in its total and it uses the method that counts feature-length episodes as single episodes. This makes that wiki's total release count 744. ^ Originally entitled Star Trek, it has in recent years become known as Star Trek: The Original Series or as "Classic Star Trek"—retronyms that distinguish it from its sequels and the franchise as a whole. ^ Film titles of the North American and UK releases of the films no longer contained the number of the film following the sixth film (the sixth was Star Trek
Star Trek
VI: The Undiscovered Country but the seventh was Star Trek
Star Trek
Generations). However, European releases continued using numbers in the film titles until Nemesis. ^ Several characters from the original series have cameos in Star Trek Generations. William Shatner
William Shatner
plays a major role in that film. A few Star Trek: Voyager characters play cameos in First Contact and Nemesis. ^ Star Trek
Star Trek
(2009), Into Darkness, and Beyond are often considered to be, and referred to as, a "reboot". They are also a continuation of the franchise that establishes an alternate reality from the previous films. This was done to free the new films from the restrictions of continuity without completely discarding it. This new reality was informally referred to by several names, including the "Abramsverse", "JJ Trek", the "alternate timeline" and "NuTrek". It was named the "Kelvin Timeline", as opposed to the "Prime Timeline" of the original series and films, by Michael and Denise Okuda for use in reference guides and encyclopedias. The name Kelvin comes from the USS Kelvin, a starship involved in the event that creates the new reality in 2009's Star Trek. Leonard Nimoy
Leonard Nimoy
plays an older version of Spock

in the film Star Trek
Star Trek
to help link the two timelines. ^ While the official release date of the eleventh Star Trek
Star Trek
was May 8, 2009, the film premiered internationally in Buda, Texas on April 6, 2009. ^ While the official release date of Star Trek
Star Trek
Into Darkness was May 16, 2013, the film premiered internationally in Sydney, Australia on April 23, 2013. ^ Although the Hugo Award
Hugo Award
is mainly given for print-media science fiction, its "best drama" award is usually given to film or television presentations. The Hugo does not give out awards for best actor, director, or other aspects of film production. Before 2002, films and television series competed for the same Hugo, before the split of the drama award into short drama and long drama. ^ The other two films nominated for the Hugo in 1967 were the films Fahrenheit 451 and Fantastic Voyage. ^ The science fiction Saturn Awards
Saturn Awards
did not exist during broadcasting of the original series. Unlike the Hugo, the Saturn Award gives out prizes for best actor, special effects and music, and also unlike the Hugo (until 2002) movies and television shows have never competed against each other for Saturns.
