What Do We Know About Star Trek Online

Introduction

Think about it. No wars, no terrorism, no racial tensions or religious arguments and all men and women getting on in harmony as one race, one human race. This is a vision that may come true one day although I believe I will not live long enough to see the day it happens.

Nearly 50 years ago one man had this vision and it has spawned a TV series that has lasted through the generations and even a computer game or two. I am of course talking about Gene Roddenberry and Star Trek.

When you can see things about Star Trek Online you can find loads about the vision, the meanings behind the stories also other aspects of the series and its characters. Never in my life time have I known a series last the test of time like this, lets have a look at the key moments.

Star Trek The Original Series

This is the original series that started it all. Set some 300 years in the future it depicts the adventures of Captain James T Kirk (William Shatner) and the crew of the Starship Enterprise going to where no man and no one has gone before. This series had various human ideas built into it and depicted a utopian future where man kind have resolved their differences and live in peace. This series spawned a series of movies we all love today.

Star Trek The Next Generation

Starring Patrick Stewart as the Captain of a new Enterprise and a new crew, this series was first released in 1987 and depicts the adventures of the crew set roughly 100 years after Captain Kirk. Star Trek TNG lasted for seven seasons and is remembered with fondness for its epic story lines and a popular crew. This series certainly expanded the Star Trek universe beyond the confides of the U.S.S Enterprise.

Star Trek Deep Space 9

Set in roughly the same time as TNG this depicted the adventures of a Starfleet Crew in control of an abandoned Cardassian space station on the edge of Bajoran Space. In my opinion this series did get off to a slow start but built into in my opinion the best of the bunch. What made it very special was the first African American Starfleet Captain which further cements the idea of racial equality in the distant future and an epic war with a vicious alien race that dictated much of the events of the later seasons.

Star Trek Voyager

This depicts the adventures of the Federation Star ship Voyager stuck 75000 light years from home. With Captain Kathryn Janeway in command they were sent on a mission to capture a renegade starfleet officer. After being catapulted so far from home they were forced to join together and work on a way to get home. After seven successful seasons they finally did it. Voyager had many firsts including a female in command of a Starship.

Star Trek Enterprise

Starring Scott Bakula as Captain Jonathan Archer this series is set 100 years before Kirk and depicts Earths early attempts to break out from our solar system and explore the unknown. Only lasting four seasons this series had some very enjoyable moments and some feel it was cut off in its prime.

Computer Games

Because of the enduring popularity of Star Trek there has been many computer games over the years. The most popular at the moment is the MMPORG Star Trek Online. This game denotes the adventures of Starfleet and is set some years after the Next Generation.

Conclusion

While I acknowledge the existence of the JJ Abrams films and did enjoy them they did not compare in anyway to the original vision set out by Gene Roddenberry all those years ago. If I was to pick a personal favorite it would definately be Deep Space 9 with out a doubt. I invite you to look at anything online about Star Trek and see what you think.
