The USS Enterprise (that’s the Enterprise D, for those in the know.) (PARAMOUNT PICTURES CORP.)
Captian’s log: September 8, 1966. Our position: inside a studio in a bizarre world called Hollywood. Our mission: create the longest running cult phenomenon television series/movie series/pop culture icon of all time.

In honor of the success of that mission — 45 years later and still Star Trek success marches on — created this timeline of the hallmarks of the show. Enjoy, Trekkies.

The entire history of Star Trek is in this timeline infographic.
