Conception and settingThe Starfleet emblem as seen in the franchise
As early as 1964, drafted a proposal for the science-fiction series that would become Star Trek. Although he publicly marketed it as a —a so-called " to the Stars"—he privately told friends that he was modeling it on 's, intending each episode to act on two levels: as a suspenseful adventure story and as a.
Most Star Trek stories depict the adventures of humans and aliens who serve in, the space-borne humanitarian and peacekeeping armada of the. The protagonists have values, and must apply these ideals to difficult dilemmas.
Many of the conflicts and political dimensions of Star Trek represent of contemporary cultural realities. Star Trek: The Original Series addressed issues of the 1960s, just as later spin-offs have reflected issues of their respective decades. Issues depicted in the various series include war and peace, the value of personal loyalty,,, class warfare, economics, racism, religion, human rights,, feminism, and the role of technology. Roddenberry stated: "[By creating] a new world with new rules, I could make statements about sex, religion,, politics, and intercontinental missiles. Indeed, we did make them on Star Trek: we were sending messages and fortunately they all got by the network." "If you talked about purple people on a far off planet, they (the TV network) never really caught on. They were more concerned about cleavage. They actually would send a censor down to the set to measure a woman's cleavage to make sure too much of her breast wasn't showing"
Roddenberry intended the show to have a progressive political agenda reflective of the emerging counter-culture of the youth movement, though he was not fully forthcoming to the networks about this. He wanted Star Trek to show what humanity might develop into, if it would learn from the lessons of the past, most specifically by ending violence. An extreme example is the alien species, the Vulcans, who had a violent past but learned to control their emotions. Roddenberry also gave Star Trek an anti-war message and depicted the United Federation of Planets as an ideal, optimistic version of the United Nations. His efforts were opposed by the network because of concerns over marketability, e.g., they opposed Roddenberry's insistence that Enterprise have a racially diverse crew.
The central trio of,, and from Star Trek: The Original Series was modeled on storytelling.
There is a mythological component [to pop culture], especially with science fiction. It's people looking for answers – and science fiction offers to explain the inexplicable, the same as religion tends to do... If we accept the premise that it has a mythological element, then all the stuff about going out into space and meeting new life – trying to explain it and put a human element to it – it's a hopeful vision. All these things offer hope and imaginative solutions for the future.
Richard Lutz wrote:
The enduring popularity of Star Trek is due to the underlying which binds fans together by virtue of their shared love of stories involving exploration, discovery, adventure and friendship that promote an egalitarian and peace loving society where technology and diversity are valued rather than feared and citizens work together for the greater good. Thus Star Trek offers a hopeful vision of the future and a template for our lives and our society that we can aspire to.
History and production
BeginningsCommander Spock and Captain James T. Kirk, played by and, pictured here in The Original Series.
In early 1964, Roddenberry presented a brief treatment for a proposed Star Trek TV series to comparing it to, "a Wagon Train to the stars." Desilu worked with Roddenberry to develop the treatment into a, which was then pitched to NBC.
paid to make a pilot, "", starring as Enterprise. NBC rejected The Cage, but the executives were still impressed with the concept, and made the unusual decision to commission a second pilot: "".
The first regular episode ("") of aired on Thursday, September 8, 1966 in the US.
While the show initially enjoyed high ratings, the average rating of the show at the end of its first season dropped to 52nd out of 94 programs. Unhappy with the show's ratings, NBC threatened to cancel the show during its second season. The show's, led by, conducted an unprecedented letter-writing campaign, petitioning the network to keep the show on the air. NBC renewed the show, but moved it from primetime to the "", and substantially reduced its budget. In protest Roddenberry resigned as producer and reduced his direct involvement in Star Trek, which led to becoming producer for the show's third and final season. Despite another letter-writing campaign, NBC cancelled the series after three seasons and 79 episodes.
After the original series was cancelled, Paramount Studios, which had bought the series from Desilu, licensed the rights to help recoup the production losses. Reruns began in the fall of 1969 and by the late 1970s the series aired in over 150 domestic and 60 international markets. This helped Star Trek develop a greater than its popularity during its original run.
One sign of the series' growing popularity was the first which occurred on January 21–23, 1972 in New York City. Although the original estimate of attendees was only a few hundred, several thousand fans turned up. Star Trek fans continue to attend similar conventions worldwide.
The series' newfound success led to the idea of reviving the franchise. with produced the first post original series show,. It ran on NBC for 22 half-hour episodes over two seasons on Saturday mornings from 1973 to 1974. Although short-lived, typical for animated productions in that time slot during that period, the series garnered the franchise's only "Best Series" as opposed to the franchise's later technical ones. and Roddenberry began developing a new series,, in May 1975 in response to the franchise's newfound popularity. Work on the series ended, however, when the proposed folded.
Following the success of the science fiction movies and, Paramount adapted the planned pilot episode of Phase II into the feature film. The film opened in North America on December 7, 1979, with mixed reviews from critics. The film earned 9 million worldwide, below expectations but enough for Paramount to create a sequel. The studio forced Roddenberry to relinquish creative control of future sequels.
The success of the critically acclaimed sequel,, reversed the fortunes of the franchise. While the sequel grossed less than the first movie, The Wrath of Khan's lower production costs made it net more profit. Paramount produced six Star Trek feature films between 1979 and 1991. In response to the popularity of Star Trek feature films, the franchise returned to television with (TNG) in 1987. Paramount chose to distribute it as a show rather than a network show.
Following Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Roddenberry's role was changed from producer to creative consultant with minimal input to the films while being heavily involved with the creation of. Roddenberry died on October 24, 1991, giving executive producer control of the franchise.Star Trek had become known to those within Paramount as "the franchise", because of its great success and recurring role as a for the studio when other projects failed.TNG had the highest ratings of any Star Trek series and became the #1 syndicated show during the last years of its original seven-season run. In response to TNG's success, Paramount released a spin-off series in 1993. While never as popular as TNG, the series had sufficient ratings for it to last seven seasons.
In January 1995, a few months after TNG ended, Paramount released a fourth TV series,. Star Trek saturation reached a peak in the mid-1990s with DS9 and Voyager airing concurrently and three of the four TNG-based feature films released in 1994, 1996, and 1998. By 1998, Star Trek was Paramount's most important property; the enormous profits of "the franchise" funded much of the rest of the studio's operations.:49–50,54Voyager became the flagship show of the new (UPN) and thus the first major network Star Trek series since the original.
After Voyager ended, UPN produced, a prequel TV series to the original show. Enterprise did not enjoy the high ratings of its predecessors and UPN threatened to cancel it after the series' third season. Fans launched a campaign reminiscent of the one that saved the third season of the Original Series. Paramount renewed Enterprise for a fourth season, but moved it to the. Like the Original Series, Enterprise ratings dropped during this time slot, and UPN cancelled Enterprise at the end of its fourth season. Enterprise aired its final episode on May 13, 2005. Fan groups, "Save Enterprise", attempted to save the series and tried to raise million to privately finance a fifth season of Enterprise. Though the effort garnered considerable press, the fan drive failed to save the series. The cancellation of Enterprise ended an eighteen-year continuous production run of Star Trek programming on television. The poor box office performance in 2002 of the film, cast an uncertain light upon the future of the franchise. Paramount relieved Berman, the franchise producer, of control of Star Trek.

The studio also turned down an animated. Instead, Paramount hired a new creative team to reinvigorate the franchise in 2007. Writers and and producer,, had the freedom to reinvent the feel of Trek.
The team created the franchise's eleventh film, entitled simply, releasing it in May 2009. The film featured a new cast portraying the crew of the original show. Star Trek was a prequel of the original series set in an, known as the "Kelvin Timeline". This gave the film and future sequels to it freedom from the need to conform to the franchise's canonical timeline. The eleventh Star Trek film's marketing campaign targeted non-fans, even stating in the film's advertisements that "this is not your father's Star Trek".
The film earned considerable critical and financial success, grossing (in inflation-adjusted dollars) more box office sales than any previous Star Trek film. The plaudits include the franchise's first (for ). The film's major cast members are contracted for two sequels. Paramount's sequel to the 2009 film,, premiered in Sydney, Australia, on April 23, 2013, but the film did not release in the United States until May 17, 2013. While the film was not as successful in the North American box office as its predecessor, internationally, in terms of box office receipts, Into Darkness was the most successful of the franchise. A thirteenth film entitled was released on July 22, 2016.

Notable fan fiction
Although Star Trek has been off the air since 2005, CBS and Paramount pictures have allowed fan-produced shows to be created. While not officially part of the Star Trek universe, several veteran Star Trek actors, actresses, and writers have contributed their talents to many of these productions. While none of these films have been created for profit, several fan productions have turned to from sites, such as to help with production costs.
Two series set during the TOS time period are and the Hugo award nominated. Another series,, takes place on the Briar Patch, a region of space introduced in Star Trek Insurrection. It has had over 50 episodes produced, and has two spin-off series, Star Trek: Odyssey and Star Trek: The Helena Chronicles. Several standalone fan films have been created including. Future fan films include. Audio only fan productions includes Star Trek: The Continuing Mission. Several fan film parodies have also been created.
The original Star Trek series is also notable for giving rise to, a genre of fan-produced in-universe fiction where normally non-romantic same-sex characters are portrayed as being a romantic couple, notably "Kirk/Spock" stories. These began appearing in the early 1970s, generally written by female fans of the show. Over the intervening decades, especially with the advent of the internet, slash fanfiction has become its own thriving fandom.
In 2016, Paramount and CBS instituted strict fan guidelines on fan films. Notable guidelines include a maximum length of 15 minutes, a maximum fund limit of,000, and a ban on using individuals previously associated with Star Trek productions. This has shut down all of the highly publicized fan film productions ending what has been called a "golden age of amateur Star Trek films".

At Star Trek's creation, Norway Productions, Roddenberry's production company, shared ownership with and, after acquired Desilu in 1967, with Paramount Pictures, the conglomerate's film studio. Paramount did not want to own the unsuccessful show; net profit was to be shared between Norway, Desilu/Paramount, Shatner, and NBC but Star Trek lost money, and the studio did not expect to syndicate it. In 1970 Paramount offered to sell all rights to Star Trek to Roddenberry, but he could not afford the 0,000 cost (equivalent to 5,244 in 2017).
In 1989, Gulf+Western renamed itself as Paramount Communications, and in 1994 merged with. In 2005, Viacom divided into, whose subsidiary retained the Star Trek brand, and, whose Paramount Pictures subsidiary retained the Star Trek film library and rights to make additional films, along with video distribution rights to the TV series on behalf of CBS.

- This count includes all planned episodes of Star Trek Discovery through season one. it also includes the animated series, and the original pilot, "The Cage". Two-part episodes that were not originally aired at the same time are considered two separate episodes. Ten feature-length episodes were originally aired as two-hour presentations and are sometimes considered single episodes, however, in this count, they too are seen as two individual episodes. The Star Trek wiki differs from the count listed because it includes the feature films in its total and it uses the method that counts feature-length episodes as single episodes. This makes that wiki's total release count 744.

- Film titles of the North American and UK releases of the films no longer contained the number of the film following the sixth film (the sixth was Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country but the seventh was Star Trek Generations).

- Several characters from the original series have cameos in Star Trek Generations. William Shatner plays a major role in that film. A few Star Trek: Voyager characters play cameos in First Contact and Nemesis.
- Star Trek (2009), Into Darkness, and Beyond are often considered to be, and referred to as, a "reboot". They are also a continuation of the franchise that establishes an alternate reality from the previous films. This was done to free the new films from the restrictions of continuity without completely discarding it. This new reality was informally referred to by several names, including the "Abramsverse", "JJ Trek", the "alternate timeline" and "NuTrek". It was named the "Kelvin Timeline", as opposed to the "Prime Timeline" of the original series and films, by Michael and Denise Okuda for use in reference guides and encyclopedias. The name Kelvin comes from the USS Kelvin, a starship involved in the event that creates the new reality in 2009's Star Trek. Leonard Nimoy plays an older version of Spock in the film Star Trek to help link the two timelines.
