Timeline - Main Index

This is a timeline based on events depicted in Star Trek - the series of television programs and movies that have been produced by Paramount between 1966 and 2005. 

For the purpose of this timeline, the "canon" of Star Trek includes all productions produced by Paramount under the Star Trek brand inclusive of all the television series, the animated series, the motion pictures, and the original pilot "The Cage".   Novels, comic books, games, fan fiction and other items are not covered by this timeline.

The timeline is broken out into the following parts:
