1960s

The beginning of Star Trek with the first TV series.

Star Trek (1966)
The original Star Trek TV series created by Gene Roddenberry. It lasted 3 seasons from 1966-1969 and was cancelled for low ratings. It then proceeded to become a huge cult classic in the 1970s after cancellation.

1970s

Cult popularity and a rebirth on the big screen.
People who added this item 117 Average listal rating (81 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.7
Short lived animated series that only lasted 22 episodes over 2 seasons. It featured most of the actors from the original series in voice roles. The length of episodes was halved from the live action original. Squarely aimed at the younger audience.

The movie was originally to be the pilot episode of the a new Star Trek series, which ultimately never saw the light of day. Gene Roddenberry then turned it into the first movie of the Star Trek franchise.

1980s

Mainstream popularity and a return to the small screen, but with the new cast, the "Next Generation" of Star Trek.
People who added this item 735 Average listal rating (521 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.7
Possibly the most popular of the Star Trek movies and the first production in the franchise not to have Gene Roddenberry at the helm. The character of Khan Noonien Singh was brought back from the original series to be the main villain of the movie.

Continues the same storyline started in the preceding movie, picking up right where it left off. Spock was killed trying to save the Enterprise at the end of Star Trek II and it is up to kirk to save his eternal Vulcan soul.

After a series of successful movies, Star Trek finally found it's way back to the TV screen with an all new cast. The series lasted 7 seasons from 1987-1994 and is probably the most popular TV series in the franchise.

This movie is notable for the fact that William Shatner wrote and directed, and is reputed to be the worst movie in the franchise.

1990s

The peak of Star Trek popularity (and critical acceptance), with three TV series in production and four movies released. The Next Generation also graduates to the big screen.
The last movie to feature the cast members of the original TV series, some 25 years after they first hit the screen in these roles. Quite a run it was too.

This TV series broke the mold as far as Star Trek goes, by being set on a space station rather than a spaceship. It featured more politics and bickering among the characters than any previous series, as well as a large number of grey characters. It lasted 7 seasons from 1993-1999.

The characters from the Next Generation finally make their big screen bow with this movie. It's a change of guard after a monster run of 6 movies with the Kirk and his cohorts. They dropped the numbers from the name of the movie starting now, but this is still referred to as Star Trek VII by fans.

Another TV series that somewhat breaks the mold for Star Trek series. While still set on a spaceship, this one is about a crew far from home trying to make their way back. While the other series had frequent visits to Earth, we hardly see it here.

Known at Star Trek VIII among fans, this is possibly the best movie in the franchise. Loosely a sequel to a two part TNG episode 'Descent', it explores the threat of the Borg to humankind.

Known at Star Trek IX among fans, this movie wasn't a critical favourite. In fact, it was pretty much the start of the end for the original incarnation of Star Trek universe and it's popularity.

2000s

Decline in popularity, cancellation of the last TV series and a new lease of life with a franchise reboot.
People who added this item 347 Average listal rating (247 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.5
The last Star Trek TV series so far. It lasted just 4 seasons from 2001-2005 and was the first series to be cancelled since the original 36 years ago, rather than the producers deciding to end things. It represents the last we see of the original Star Trek universe started in 1966.

Known at Star Trek X among fans and the last movie to feature the cast from TNG. Easily my least favourite movie, it was also critically savaged and performed poorly at the box office. The stage was set for a reboot, which took 7 years to materialise, the longest gap between two Star Trek movies.

Star Trek (2009)
The latest movie in the Star Trek franchise and the first to feature an all new cast that was never involved in any TV series from the franchise. It's a reboot of the franchise and the characters of Kirk, Spock, McCoy and everyone else from the original Star Trek series are completely re-imagined. The movie is very deftly tied together to the original Star Trek series and movies by putting it in an alternate universe to the one that is featured in the others. Both the universes co-exist side by side and they use the character of Spock to tie it all together. It's a clever way to co-opt 43 years of franchise history, yet start with a clean slate.

2010s

The franchise moves into it's sixth decade with a film sequel to the 2009 movie. No TV presence in sight yet.

Sequel to the 2009 movie re-boot of the franchise. At least one further sequel is planned, taking our beloved Star Trek into it's sixth decade.

Great list to a great franchise. I love Star Trek and I can't wait for the sequel to the JJ Abrams film.
