Sci-fi TV show from the 60's originally concieced by Gene Roddenberry. Star Trek in its 5 live action TV series and 10 movies were originally based on the Gene Roddenburry's visions of the future and his humanistic principles for what the future could achieve if human-kind worked to better its self with the use of technology and personal freedom.

Devoties of star trek are known as (i) Treckies or (ii) Trekkers.
(i) Treckies are often fans of the show but tend not to too heavily engage in the geekyer aspects of it such as conventions or creating their own uniform, righting fan scripts. Still likely to own plenty of DVD/PC Games on the subject buts that’s about it
(ii) Trekkers on the other hand tend to be much more devoted/fanatical and noticeably geekier, oftern sporting uniforms from the show in public with out much reason. Speaking Klingon to their friends (though most Treckies know the odd phrase her or there) and having hundreds of pounds (yes, not dollars) worth of Star Trek memorabilia. Trekkers can be described as 'moving with the show' though a week definition it show quite nicely the considerably amounts of involvement Trekkers with the show have over the passive engagement of Treckies

Star Trek: The Original Series concept was later to be formed in to several spin-of series; "Star Trek: The Next Generation" in the 80's, the 90's saw "Star Trek: Voyager" and "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" and the 00's saw "Star Trek: Enterprise" (prequel series to the Original Series) grace our screen. There have been 10 film incarnations also with another one on the way. Though Gene Roddenberry passed away during the filming of one of the later series of ST:The Next Generation, much of his vision was still continued in the continuing series and movies. Most notably however, was that Gene’s model of standalone episodes was was scrapped, star trek could now have story archers that spanned over many episodes (as in Star Trek: Deep space 9 Series 7, the closing of that series have a 5 episode story line).

A show that, despite it's long history and fame, is to this day viewed only by obese homosexual stamp-collecting faggots, who at best might make love to a microwaved bagel. A popular debate topic as of now is how William Shatner ever found work or intercourse after his time on the show.
Me and my friends plan to go to my house and play Pokemon and watch Startrek- just not too late cuz my bedtime is 5:30.

A sadly maligned tv series, 'The Original Series' was cancelled because it was very bad but was later resurrected with the god-like series 'The Next Generation', 'Deep Space Nine' and 'Enterprise' A cheap knock-off called 'Voyager' also exists.
'Star Trek' the best Sci-Fi TV show ever!

The universe in which TOS, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise inhabit.
It is a universe very much centered on social rather than scientific possibilities, due to various budget constraints it could not portray very many non-humanoid lifeforms that weren't energy beings. It attempts to seem scientifically sophisticated via copious amounts of technobabble that has only a tenuous link to theoretical concepts of today. It's spacecraft suffer the same problems as Star Wars, having low range weapons of poor firepower. Kinetic weapons are few and far between despite being superior in almost every way to phasers, and as in Star Wars, melee weapons larger than a knife make a mysterious return. The human political system is more akin to a socialist dictatorship than a free and fair society, and one can only hope that the Borg (Who would have their asses kicked by 21st century armies, btw) will assimilate them all and end the entire melodrama.
Star Trek is a vision of an alternate future where brains where bred out of humanity.

1. A lifestyle for people who didn't get out enough to join a real cult. Involves reading "technical manuals", obsessing about minute details of trivia, and attending conventions where 90% of the people are wearing spandex.

2. One of several shows that feature spandex-wearing people from "the future". Characterized by total lack of plot, total lack of acting ability by leads, terrible dialogue, "alien" races with identical-to-human behaviors and norms, a tendency to always be on one of UPN, Sci-Fi, TNN, or WB late=nights, and complete overuse of the "ass-shot" (a camera shot where the actor is zoomed in or out on using the ass as a focal point).

3. Starting point of Willaim Shattner's career.
1. I drove past a Star-Trek convention the other day and swore I'd become a Branch-Dividian before I ever did that shit.

2. I was watching UPN at 3 am when Star-Trek came on, but I wound up watching the Home-Shopping Network, because at least they have decent cinematography.

3. Willaim Shattner was on Star-Trek? You mean that guy who does spoken versions of rap songs?

Worst TV shows and movies ever! Star Wars and Lord of the Rings kick the living crap out of it. Remember you are either a loser Trekie who give nerds a bad name or a Star Wars fan, cool and loved.
