Star Trek is a science-fiction series created by Gene Roddenberry and it is basically set in the future when people are exploring space. It is very utopian so people generally know right from wrong except for the bad guys.
- The Original Series: The dynamic captain Kirk and his crew Spock (whose dad is an alien and he's very smart), Uhura (who sings and can speak several different languages), Chekhov (who has an interesting accent), Sulu (who likes plants), Dr McCoy (who's a bit grumpy and nicknamed "Bones"), Janice Rand (Kirk's unfortunate assistant, a minor character) and other minor character Christine Chapel (a nurse who likes science) are exploring the galaxy in a ship called Enterprise.
- The Animated Series: The Original Series but a cartoon.
- The Next Generation: Set after the Original Series in another Enterprise, this time the captain is Picard (a serious man who likes Earl Grey tea) and his crew are Will Riker (a flirty man who plays the trombone), Geordi LaForge (an engineering genius who tells a lot of jokes and wears a visor on his face to see), Worf (a Klingon security officer), Dr Crusher (who has had a past romance with Picard), Deanna Troi (the counsellor, can sense emotions), Data (an android who studies human life), Wesley (Crusher's son, a genius) and Tasha Yar (missing security officer). Again, they are exploring the galaxy.
- Voyager: Set around the same time as the Next Generation. It is about a starship called Voyager lost in the Delta Quadrant (basically the other side of the galaxy for all you non-geeks out there) and trying to get home. The characters are Captain Janeway (a determined woman who likes coffee), Chakotay (spiritual dude with a tattoo on his face), B'Elanna Torres (grumpy, impatient half-Klingon engineer), Tuvok (Vulcan security officer), the Doctor (a holographic doctor with a snarky sense of humour), Neelix (cheerful chef, an alien), Harry Kim (cheerful but unfortunate helmsman), Tom Paris (snarky, rebellious pilot), Kes (alien, has psychic powers), Seven of Nine (woman who got assimilated by the Borg), Mallerie Widman (minor character) and Naomi Widman (Mallerie's young daughter).
- Deep Space Nine: A series set on a space station.
- Enterprise: Set before the Original Series when everything was new. The characters are Jonathan Archer (captain, a bit casual but knows where he stands), T'Pol (Vulcan science officer), Charles "Trip" Tucker (cheeky engineer, but unfortunate but very eager, dated T'Pol), Malcolm Reed (pessimistic security officer, likes explosions etc), Dr Phlox (cheerful alien doctor, keeps a lot of animals), Hoshi Sato (translator), Travis Mayweather (pilot, jokester), and Porthos (Captain Archer's Beagle, likes cheese)
Star Trek has many aliens, the most notable being the Vulcans (a society based on logic, have green blood, slanted eyebrows, and stuck-out ears), the Romulans (evil aliens related to the Vulcans), Klingons (aliens with wild hair and bumpy foreheads who have a society based on war and honour), Andorians (sky-blue aliens with antennae, can be quite moody), Borg (a race of cyborgs who turn you into one of them by "assimilating" you), Ferengi (aliens with huge ears who always try to make a profit), Denobulans (Phlox's species), Q (god-like aliens who cause chaos) Talaxians (Neelix's species), Ocampo (Kes's species), Xindi (an antagonistic race who look like insects or fish or lizards), Kazon (wild primitive aliens who look sort of like Klingons but skinnier), Cardassians (grey aliens with funny necks, very dangerous), Bajorans (aliens with bumpy noses) and Sultan (evil time-travelling aliens). Generally the good aliens are part of The Federation.
Notable items in Star Trek are universal translators (which help the characters talk to aliens), communicators (like walkie-talkies but more efficient), Warp speed (going faster than light), phasers (weapons that are usually set to stun and shoot light), tricorders (tools used to scan things), transporters (used to teleport), and replicators (used to make stuff on demand),
