The Continuities of Star Trek

The live-action TV series and movies produced by Star Trek's copyright owners are canon by definition. Until 2009, all canon Star Trek was set in the same timeline (although owing to time travel it was frequently subject to subtle changes). But the continuity is becoming increasingly complex. The Abrams movies explicitly take place in a detached timeline and hence in a new continuity. And although Star Trek Discovery is meant to exist in the same continuity as TOS, this official claim is hard to uphold.

A new article looks at the continuity of Star Trek and how the concept changed over time, from a single timeline to something like a multiverse. The article takes into account the official policy of CBS but also outlines a way to handle reboot series such as Discovery. Note that the purpose of this article is not to discuss whether or not the Abramsverse and Discovery are in contradiction to classic Trek, which I have already done in excruciating detail in several other articles and episode reviews and don't want to rehash here. Regarding the existing continuity issues, there are only summaries.

    2020欧洲杯时间安排Potential remarkable fact - apparently the version of "Blue Skies" performed over Data's death scene was sung by Isa Briones to an arrangement by Jay Chattaway. So perhaps Data did get a message from his daughter after all ;)

  • 29 Mar 2020
    What I am missing is some explanation from Data why he wants to die, if there is possibility to have new body. Maybe if he could at least tell something like they offered him this option, but he declined.

    Data was clearly aware what was happening to Picard so IF that was an option for him (it might not be for some unexplained reason given he's there 9+ years on) and he though that he could be resurrected that way and actually wanted to he would have asked. Data's explanation in that scene is therefore sufficient.

    I am happy that the finale was possible to end without big space figh and do it Darmok way :)
    What I am missing is some explanation from Data why he wants to die, if there is possibility to have new body. Maybe if he could at least tell something like they offered him this option, but he declined.

    What I do not like is how Seven is portrayed. In Voyager she was that smart individual that was able to resolve catastrophic situations with calm face and was not doing borg-fu and kicking everyone in the ass. I really miss this, because she now looks like some blonde Georgeou it feels like this character lost one or two dimensions.

    Another thing I do not like is the cheap looking starfleet cloneships. It really looks like the creators are lazy regarding this. I do not buy it if they would say that there was no time to put there another ship classes.

    If there will be next season, I would like to see some reactions from Picard's old crew and friends on his new life after dead.
    Like is Troi capable of feel his emotions? What will Riker say to him after he finds out that he died 5 minutes after he warped away with his clone fleet.
    It would be nice for example if Picard will show to Data' best fried Geordi some farewell message from Data, that he recorded before he was a diconnected.
    How will Guinan like the synthetic bald man.
    It is also clear that showrunners want to stay away from starfleet. So I want to see more about the situation in federation and other races. How citizens live in federation. Why Picard has big wineyard and Raffi just some small mobile home. How they are paying in restaurant? Do they just go to grocery and grab what they want and walk away? How looks the toilet in 25th century?
    2020欧洲杯时间安排Where is the Romulan capital now? There is lot of possibilities to show. I just hope the story will be good and without red signals, I mean plot holes :)

    There were ups and downs during these 10 episodes, but overal this is more closer to what I think is Star Trek than the other series.

  • 28 Mar 2020

    2020欧洲杯时间安排Yup, I don't think there was any indication of Narek's fate at all - definitely a plot hole which may get plugged with next season as I bet we'll see him back as he's probably not going to be welcomed back by the Zhat Vash.

  • 28 Mar 2020

    Yes! Glad someone else did too!

    2020欧洲杯时间安排Well said, Erik.

  • 28 Mar 2020

    I took it to mean 'arrived' as in 'evolved into being,' as he seems to be implying something much more ancient than the Vulcan schism. I took it to be a rather oblique reference to the first Vulcans 'emerging from the primordial soup' or what-have-you; 'arriving on the scene'.

  • 28 Mar 2020

    Agreed on the alien researchers. Also, would 'what happened to Narek' count? I thought I'd just missed it, but Bernd doesn't seem to have ntoiced either. Did he just vanish from the episode?

    Regarding Oh, I get that; but she was also implanted in Starfleet long before the Mars synths were built; she seemed to be there as long-term insurance against ongoing synths. I suppose, with the ban, she may consider this the final thing the identity will ever be needed for, though, or merely know she's in imminent danger of exposure, and getting out while she could.

    Somebody really did their homework: As far as I can tell, Seven's bare arms were only seen once, at the beginning and end of "Hope and fear".

    The artificially created Spot II certainly takes after the second version of Spot, first seen in “A fistful of Datas” (an American short-hair orange tabby) and not the first version (a long-haired Somali cat) that only appeared in “Data’s day” and “In theory”.

    Remembering the great Leonard Nimoy on his birthday. From originating and helping create and shape with such heart, to directing, writing, or producing movies, and then moving from Prime to Kelvin, he is, and always shall be, our friend. 🖖❤️
