have you accepted star trek as your lord and saviour?
a guide for prospective trekkies
with the trailer for the new jj abrams film hot off the proverbial press, there has been a renewed interest in all things trek. starting any new franchise is scary shit, so i’ve attempted to provide some handy hints n top tips for anyone looking to pursue their interest further and navigate the firey-mouthed behemoth that is the star trek universe.
- The star trek franchise spans approximately 320 years in universe (excluding time travel) and 50 years in real time, and is comprised of 12 movies and 6 tv series. this chronology and scope may seem daunting but do not fear, wikipedia has a timeline here and there is also a more concise one here.
- memory alpha, the star trek wiki, is also your bff, but beware of spoilers!
- trekcore is a fabulous archive of everything from screencaps to audio and video clips to rare bts photos(suggested viewing order, essential episodes and more info under the cut!)
