** Pre-''Nemesis'', authors had a standing order not to kill any character that had appeared on-screen. Afterwards, because ''Nemesis'' is likely the last time the original timeline will be seen on-screen, all bets are off. (Still non-canon, however.)

* TeleporterAccident: Transporters work by literally disassembling an object (or person) into energy, shooting it some distance away, and reassembling that object at the new location. Contrary to [[FanDumb popular opinion]], the transported object is indeed the original, but the reintegration process can be [[LiterallyShatteredLives rather]] [[NoBodyLeftBehind dangerous.]]
There have been some [[PhlebotinumBreakdown grisly accidents]] in each iteration of ''Trek'': two ''Enterprise'' crewmen died agonizing deaths (''TOS: The Motion Picture'') after being [[BodyHorror re-integrated incorrectly]], Riker ([[AssPull somehow]]) unwittingly twinned himself when he tried beaming through a distorted atmosphere (TNG, "Second Chances"), Scotty's transporter pattern was stuck in limbo for a ''century'' (TNG, "Relics"), and another crewman's body was mixed with rocks and foliage while attempting to beam out during a fierce windstorm, though he survived (ENT, "Strange New World"). Sabotage of the transporter buffer is not uncommon, either. If you hide a remat detonator (described as being 2 square millimeters in size) on their person, you can [[KickTheDog disrupt the passenger's transporter pattern]] as they beam up, [[LudicrousGibs leaving a smoking, half-finished corpse on the pad.]] [[Squick Yech.]]

* TeleportInterdiction:
** Since the transporters are such an integral part of the Star Trek franchise, it has a lot of this. For example, it's ([[HandWave usually]]) not possible to transport through a ship's deflector shields. Usually this is used as a way to add drama -- with the ship having to drop its shields briefly in the middle of battle in order to beam back an away team -- but it also means transporter-enabled boarding parties aren't a major part of battle tactics.

* TeleportersAndTransporters: Perhaps the vaguest invention of the 23rd century is the transporter.
** Humans in the future, being generally agnostic and pro-science, have come to peace with the discovery that "matter and energy are interchangeable." They don't seem to fret much over the philosophical implications of dying and being replaced with a clone each time they beam out.
** Not to mention there seems to be some ContinuitySnarl on how exactly transportation works, since in some episodes it's literal molecular destruction, while in others we see people being transported who maintain a consistent stream of consciousness even while they're being "blended," so it usually comes down to a case of DependingOnTheWriter.
** Before they nailed down a lot of nitty gritty, the novelist who wrote the print adaptations of TOS episodes asserted the transporter works by convincing all the particles in your body that they're really at the place where you wanted them to be, so they jump there. Which is a lot less horrifying than the "take you apart and put you back together at the other end" explanation.
** Tech manuals try to assuage the horror by stating that you're reconstructed perfectly at the other end because the scan is at a quantum level. (Compared to replicators building stuff at the molecular level. Also this is why replicators cannot create life.)
** The transporters also have the Heisenberg Compensators, an unabashed Hand Wave on the scientifically unfeasible nature of all transporters and teleporters.

And finally, ''Star Trek'' also gave rise to {{Fandom}} as we know it: when ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' began to pick up steam in syndication, fans organized conventions, wrote [[FanFic fanfiction]], [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Cosplay dressed in costume]], and generally made enough noise to keep the franchise going for nearly fifty years and counting. Every fandom since has grown from that original outpouring of fannish activity and devotion.

Added DiffLines:

* MagicByAnyOtherName: Humans are absolutely militant about this. No matter how scientifically-inexplicable something is, or if that something can outright change the laws of physics at will, it is ''still'' not "magic". Referring to it as such will provoke an immediate negative response and denial. {{Technobabble}}, even if it is completely unsupported by evidence, will invariably be accepted as an explanation before "magic" will. Things which would be considered "supernatural" in real life such as PsychicPowers or RealityWarper[=s=] are still regarded as scientific in nature, even though Federation science cannot explain them.

At San Diego Comic Con 2016, showrunner Bryan Fuller announced the series' title and unveiled the titular starship, the USS-1031 ''Discovery''. He confirmed ''DSC'' will have serialised season-long story arcs rather than episodic plots, and that it will be set in the prime timeline rather than the Kelvin Timeline of the Creator/JJAbrams films.

In November 2015, Creator/{{CBS}} [[http://www.startrek.com/article/new-star-trek-series-premieres-january-2017 announced]] that a new ''Star Trek'' series would premiere in January 2017. The project will be executive produced by Alex Kurtzman, who contributed to the first two Creator/JJAbrams films, and showran by Creator/BryanFuller, who wrote for ''[=DS9=]'' and ''VOY''. In the US, the first episode will be previewed on broadcast TV; afterwards, the series will move primarily to CBS All Access, the network's on demand/streaming service, while also airing in syndication in the same way ''TNG'' did. In Canada, the series will be on Crave. And in every other country worldwide except Mainland China, the series will be on {{Netflix}}.

At San Diego Comic Con 2016, showrunner Bryan Fuller announced that the new series would be called ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'', and will follow the voyages of the starship of the same name. It will not be an episodic show, instead having season-long serialized story arcs.
