Classic Trek

On this page you’ll find an archive of all of my posts about the five “classic” Star Trek series – i.e. the shows which have now completed their runs. To clarify, in this instance “classic” means the following: Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, the ten films starring their respective casts, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. Your definition of “classic” may vary, but this distinction is suitable for the sake of the website – at least for now. As I come to write more about each of these shows I’d love to give each series its own permanent page.

I first found my way into the Star Trek fan community with The Next Generation. I watched it during its original broadcast run here in the UK, and that was how I first became a Trekkie! During the early- or mid-90s I went back and watched The Original Series films and at least some of the episodes of the show, before going on to watch Deep Space Nine and Voyager when they aired over here too. The only show I didn’t watch in full at the time was Enterprise, which I saw the premiere of but after that only tuned in sporadically. It wasn’t until collecting the series on DVD that I came to watch it in full, several years after it went off the air.

On this page you may find theories, episode write-ups, connections between classic and modern series, and other such things!
