So I'm still kinda new to the Star Trek universe. I've been watching Next Gen for about 4 seasons. I want to watch every show and movie in the order of the star trek universe has it.

Is there a list or something somewhere where I can find them in order?

I would like to stay, this isn't a duplicate. I've read the other question, and they do not ask what I'm trying to ask.

    What are you looking for that is different than all the other versions of this question? – phantom42 May 2 '14 at 3:51

  • First, that duplicate isn't correct. That's for a 9 year old girl. I would like one that is in chronological order. – Jordan Schnur May 2 '14 at 4:09
  • @calccrypto That's perfect! Post that as an answer. – Jordan Schnur May 2 '14 at 4:10
  • Zyneak accepted the answer from Calccrypto prior to the copy/paste from DVK's other answer. The original version only included the first two lines, which provided a link to similar information. – phantom42 May 2 '14 at 11:54

Please see the timeline at the bottom of this table: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_Star_Trek#Series_and_movie_settings

This is a straight copy pasta from DVK's answer


  • Because of the (over)abundance of time travel in the franchise, the "chronological" order is actually completely jumbled up. E.g. some episodes/movies are set in far future or far past for a part or nearly entirety of the episode. I will be omitting those from the first part of the answer..

  • The question is very extensively answered in a very good Wikipedia article - the answer below is merely a useful distillation.
