Star Trek was originally a American science fiction-devised television series from 1966 to 1969 was broadcast.Eventually the Star Trek universe grew into a successful mediafranchise with five television series, an animated series, twelve feature films, dozens of computer games and hundreds of books, comic books, technical guides and encyclopedias. Further, there was between 1998 and 2008 in Las Vegas a Star Trek theme park, called Star Trek: The Experience and are there around the world regularly organized Star Trek conventions: large gatherings for fans (the 'Trekkies' or ' pullers '), where guest are often actors from the series.

Roddenberry devised a utopian future world, in which a United Earth most modern world problems: pollution, hunger, poverty and conflicts between people are largely a thing of the past. By inventions as synthetic replicators and faster than light-technology mankind has, with the help of alien peoples, founded colonies in the Galaxy .Humanity has along with some alien peoples founded an umbrella organization of worlds: the United Federation of planets. Follow the stories in the various Star Trek media especially the Starfleetofficers and civilians employed by, the military research institution of the Federation who performs with her space craft above all diplomatic and fact-finding missions and is also the armed forces .


[hide]*1 Star Trek universe and worldview

Star Trek universe and worldview[Edit]Edit

The adventures of the various television series and movies are mainly in the 23rd and 24th century, except some time travel . One is familiar with a considerable part of the Galaxy, which is divided into fourquadrants. Imagine the Galaxy for as a clock. 6 Hours than the position of the Earth's solar system. The quadrants are defined by drawing a line through the position of the star in Sector 001 (our Sun) and the center of the Galaxy. Perpendicular to this line, a second line is drawn through the center of the Galaxy. In the alpha-quadrant there are large parts of the Federation and the Cardassiaanse Empire, in the Beta quadrant include the Klingonrijk and the Romulan Empire, the Gamma quadrant, that through the wormhole Bajoraanse with the alpha-quadrant is connected, is ruled by the Dominion and the Delta-quadrant, Voyager was traveling about for years, in which the houses among other things the Ocampa and KazonHirogen. The Deposit also come from the Delta quadrant.

The original series and The Next Generation play mainly in the alpha-quadrant off. Deep Space Nine also usually, but via the wormhole is also the Gamma quadrant visited. Voyager is virtually alone in the Delta quadrant off. All series are written from an ideological vision of the world. The crews of the various space ships and stations consist of members of many different types with as common goal the peaceful exploration of the Galaxy, discovering new civilizations and the establishment of new relationships. As the series further into the future games are those peoples more exotic, but the essence, that all men are equal and can work together if they want to, remains. This is the message Roddenberry wanted to the United States at a time when the cold war was a stark reality, and in which Martin Luther King tried to make it clear that abolition ofslavery was not enough. Almost all episodes of all series are going to end up about a recognizable central human conflict that is resolved by good will and act wisely, rather than to fight it out.

In general one can say that Star Trek is a reflection of the then existing worldview in the United States. In the first series from the 1960s the Soviet Union reflected in the Klingons and the Romulansin the People's Republic of China . In the later series was laid more emphasis on international cooperation and the American-nationalist influences disappeared into the background. In the 1980s the series had many characters from the international community, but the later series often had a U.S.-dominated composition. Politically and socially sensitive issues from the 90 's in the series, especially in contrast to the first series, largely avoided.

An important feature of the Star Trek universe is that virtually all the technology there comes in for thought through. Although there are quite a few ideas for in the series which is currently impossible, but where it does, there is usually a statement within the world that indicates that thought about is that contemporary principles that have to be bypassed. Thus, for example, Star Trek warp technology, whereby the space is distorted to the limitations of the theory of relativity to get around. And the particles conveyors use a Heisenberg Compensator, Werner Heisenberg's uncertainty relation in order to compensate. In this way, created an image of a world which, while different from ours, but where not entered directly against the principles from our world is.

Without a faster-than-light technology is almost not possible to planets outside our solar system to visit, therefore, is widely used in the science fiction media of faster-than-light equipment. In Star Trek is called this technology the warp-drive. The principle on which this drive works is the contraction (to warp, distort) of the space before the spaceship, with which a (relative) speed above the speed of light is achieved. Another important invention in the series is the replicator, which used the same technology as the listed carriers. A replicator rearranged subatomic particles and moleculesis, with which objects are constructed. This enables both food as consumer items, but no living organisms or antimatter. This provides a consistent Star Trek II: Wrath from the memory of the replicators.

Most extraterrestrials that one meets seem idiomatic to speak English, thanks to the universal translators implanted (English: "Universal Translator") that most languages immediately into English. Transport between the spaceship and a planet is trouble-free by rays ("Agree") and communicators make everyone everywhere (within a certain distance) accessible. The technique is the story out of the way, but functions perfectly transparent, at least as long as the refusing technique does not itself part of the story is.

[2]The jet injector; a vaccination injection on air pressure and a precursor to the biojector-needle-free syringe.

Different technologies that are used in Star Trek, have now become reality. The best known example is of course the communicator, the wireless communication system in the first Star Trek series. The modern clamshellmobile phone, also called flip phone called, looks very much like the communicator from the 60 's. The hypospray, a device with which needle-free injections can be administered, has been around for some years. [1The by Geordi La Forge in Star Trek: The Next Generation VISOR, worn aBionic eye, is currently being developed. [2Holodecks, three-dimensional virtual reality-areas, are still in its infancy, but also there is with this in mind. Three dimensional televisions are already sold.

Despite the "scientific" explanations for most parts of the technique, some problems fairly quietly bypassed. In almost each episode are sounds of explosions, firingPhasers or startup of the warp engines to hear, while in space a virtually complete vacuum prevails, leaving no sound waves as possible. This is in almost all science fiction films and series for. In some cases, this may be explained by the fact that the listener hears the sound from inside the ship, but usually there is no scientific explanation for it. A filmtechnische: sounds make the presentation more attractive. Another problem where little attention is paid is the artificial gravity on board the space ships. Gravity aboard a spaceship can only be generated by acceleration or rotation, but at Star Trek (and many other films and series) is going on inside the ships almost always gravity. In the series, this is accomplished with a artificial gravity generator and later by means of gravity plating. The technique behind it, however, is not explained.

The television series[Edit]Edit

Star Trek was first broadcast in 1966. Since then, there have been six series created by Gene Roddenberry and his successors. Some of them were a great success, others less.

The Original Series[Edit]Edit

[3]Nichelle Nichols as Nyota Uhura.


See Star Trek (the original series) for the main article on this topic.

The original series -this is the written by Gene Roddenberry Star Trekseries, with the name. It is the story of the spaceship USS Enterprise NCC-1701 (in short: Enterprise), that three hundred years in the future, starting from the year 2265, on a five-year mission to explore the universe . The original pilot episode for the series was deemed acceptable, but not exceptional enough to make a second pilot episode Roddenberry was allowed, on which the series was accepted anyway. The series originally spoke but a small group of viewers, and was reportedly to be annually on the nomination to deleted. When it became apparent that this small group of viewers belonged to a very select target group (higher education), the series interesting for advertisers. Eventually there were with difficulty three seasons turned, with a total of 80 episodes that were broadcast in all the seasons 1966-1969, with the exception of the original pilot episode. After the series was discontinued for the repetitions the broadcasting rights were sold to various smaller television stations. Were in reruns and the series became increasingly popular in the 1970s. [3The Original Series is often abbreviated as TOS.

Star Trek: Phase II[Edit]Edit

In 1977 would be a sequel to the original television series to be created titled Star Trek: Phase II. The intention was that it was a series would be about the same ship and the same crew as the original series. In any case, William Shatner and DeForest Kelley would return again in the series as James t. Kirk and Leonard McCoyLeonard Nimoy , however, had turned down the offer to work on the series because of disagreement over the rights to his character, Spock, and the fact that he already had a role in the play Equus .

The series did go in for production, but was ultimately never made. The planned pilot episode of the series was eventually made into the script for the film Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The scripts for two other episodes, "The Child" and "Devil's Due", were later rewritten for Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The name Star Trek: Phase II is eventually given to a fanserie.

The Animated Series[Edit]Edit


See Star Trek: The Animated Series for the main article on this topic.

The animated series -after stopping the original series turned out to be increasingly popular in the repetition. This was in 1973 one of the reasons for making a cartoon series, the votes of the fixed characters were done by the actors they had played in the original series as well. The series continued where the story of the original series left off. That is, the last two years of the mission were completed. The series was called just like the original Star Trek and is usually called the animated series to distinction. In two seasons there were 22 episodes of made. These were broadcast in 1973-1974 and the fall of 1974.

Although the cartoon series not seen by everyone as part of Star Trek there are, apart from the voices, links. So employed in parts the same screenwriters to with it. Some scenarios were even originally written for the original series. In some ways, the cartoon went even further than the original. There were aliens in for that deviated more of people than make up could ensure, and vessels that are not could have been built.This aspect predicted the future, in which the Star Trek series went making increasing use computer animation to show what is not feasible. The Animated Series is often abbreviated as bag.

The animated series took place on the same ship as the original series, the u.s.s. Enterprise NCC-1701, and also the main characters were largely the same:

The Next Generation[Edit]Edit

[6]Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard)


See Star Trek: The Next Generation for the main article on this topic.

The next generation -because of the enduring popularity of Star Trek at the end of the seventies of the 20th century there were plans to make a new series on the enterprise.Only in 1987 came there will actually be a new Star Trek series, called "The Next Generation". However, some old scripts ever written for Phase II was eventually used after operation for The Next Generation.

This new series was one hundred years later than the original series, in the year 2364, around a new enterprise (USS Enterprise NCC-1701D) with a new crew. Although the first season of The Next Generation criticism got, among other things because the episodes would be too sweet, this first season was good enough to prolong the series. With new material, and with significantly more resources than the original series from the 60 's, was The Next Generation end up being a huge success. There were in the period1987-1994 in 7 seasons 177 episodes of broadcast. Gene Roddenberry died In 1991 . The Next Generation is often abbreviated as TNG.

Deep Space Nine[Edit]Edit

[8]Captain Sisko, Commander ofDeep Space Nine is played by Avery Brooks.


See Star Trek: Deep Space Nine for the main article on this topic.

Deep space nine -such as the original series had a mission duration of five years, so it was also clear that the successful series The Next Generation not always but could keep running. Therefore a next series set up, with a different theme. Instead of a space ship that was the central theme a-plenty at planets space station well into the space, in a place where a lot of space ships go past. This space station Deep Space 9was called, also called D.S. 9 (nine).

The disadvantage of those static home was that the possibility of discovery of other worlds there largely by failed. This was offset by a clearer story line than in the earlier series. That was achieved through overlapping with The Next Generation to start the series, so that world could serve as a starting point, and because the station lay in an area where previously had been a conflict and that ultimately turned out to be on the move again to a war. This was evidently insufficient in the long term, because in the later seasons, there is a space ship (USS Defiant NX-74205) at the railway station added.

In the period 1993-1999 are 7 seasons with a total of 176 episodes broadcast. Although some fans of the earlier Star Trek series and movies look down on the picturesque character of ' soap'- D 9, shows the series generally good to score, and even more popular than Voyager. [4In a recent poll on a fansite was DS9, although controversial, by the fans the best of all series called. She is especially praised for its interfaces with the current reality in the field of international politics.

Voyager NCC-74656 (in short: Voyager). This ship touches on its first mission at the hands of the being Caretaker (caregiver) involved in the Deltaquadrant, 70,000 light years from Earth. Voyager has a strong thread, namely the long journey home by the spacecraft Voyager, and the search for possibilities to shorten this trip. In addition to episodes around this thread, there are also many independent episodes made.

Voyager was created to a new television network UPNParamount's, to help launch. Paramount already had plans to start its own network. In 1977, they wanted to do this with the planned series Star Trek: Phase II, but that did not come off the ground. Important elements for the backstory of Voyager, such as the development of the Maquis, were processed in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. In the period 1995-2001 Voyager for 7 seasons and ran for 172 episodes.Voyager is often abbreviated as VOY.

At the end of the series Voyager was an idea that was widely circulated for some time carried out: with the resources like that for the last series were available, would it be possible to have a much better version of the original series, except that you would like to tell the same stories again not exactly. This is now styled in a series which, although of a ship the "enterprise", but a previous Enterprise (the USS Enterprise NX-01) from 2151. This time, more than a hundred years situated for the original series, is the time when humanity begins to researching the space with spaceships that can fly faster than light, now they get has developed that ships ' Warp 5 '. It is the beginning of Starfleet, and at this time are the techniques and protocols have been developed that are well known in the later series. In the first year was that the weakness of the series, because the characters much had to learn, but the viewers much less. However, In the following seasons, the series received significantly more speed. The series began in 2001, and has a total of four seasons and 98 episodes turned. Per 2005 is, because of the disappointing viewing figures, decided the series to stop at the end of the fourth season. With it comes an end to the Star Trek televisietijdperk for the time being. Enterprise is often abbreviated as ENT.

Written media[Edit]Edit


In addition to the series and the movies are there novels over the same world. This began with book versions of the original series, by James Blish. There is also a series of photo-comic books appeared with in each booklet a complete episode in pictures. Furthermore there are book versions of the movies, and stories that serve as an additional episodes of the series, but also there are stories about other characters in the world of Star Trek. There are also books with "technical" information on all devices, spaceships and planets in the world. There is also a number of comics released about Star Trek, and an encyclopedia.


As for many well-detailed worlds, there is also a role playfor Star Trek. There are even organizations that are entirely in the world of Star Trek Dutch reenact using forums and/or email and their home-made characters. There is also a DVD board game from 2000 (one of the first DVD Board Games) in which a Klingon (see below) hijacks a spaceship that is being repaired. The players are rented forces on the ship while the ship hijacked this hijacker (named Kavok). Who wants to fly home with it after he has escaped from a prison. Besides, there exists a large number of computer games. The first Star Trek video game (see Star Trek text game) dates back to the 1970s. This game had a text interface, with which the player could move and the enterprise on Klingons could shoot. Later computer games are much "more realistic". There are now also adventure games in the world of Star Trek, like Star Trek: Elite Force 1 & 2. Further, there is also a Star TrekMMORPG around, called Star Trek Online .

[26]Klingon-characters.;Fan Fiction

In addition to the above works with written permission of the copyright holders, there is a very large number of stories written by fans. Sometimes these are stories that loose ends of the series finishing. Often the stories or even scripts for episodes of the series. Sometimes the complete books that elsewhere in the world playing. And there are even a few writers who write whole series of 175 episodes, regardless of the existing series.


A special case is the Klingooninstituut. By the members of this Institute is the language of the Klingons developed. This is so far advanced that there is even a Klingoonse Wikipedia started. The Klingontaal has more speakers than today different natural languages. [6there are about 50 books in Klingon released, including Hamlet, the Bible and the Gilgamesh Epic.

The types and peoples[Edit]Edit

[27]Andoriaanse, one of the many species in the Star Trek universe.


See Types and peoples (Star Trek) for the main article on this topic.

Star Trek has many types and Nations. Most of them are humanoid, with small or large is usually occur as ridges on the nose or on the forehead. In the TNG episode "The Chase" is explained why most species have a humanoid form: billions of years ago investigated members of an ancient people for the Galaxy, where they discovered that they were alone. They decided to "sow" DNA-fragments on dozens of planets that might ever live would bring forth, whereby they would live on in future Nations. Indeed different civilizations thrived on, the most important of which are listed below.
