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.
