Added DiffLines:

** It was established in an episode of TNG that [[GreenAesop excessive use of the warp drive damages the fabric of reality]], leading the Federation to establish a "speed limit" of warp 5 except in [[GodzillaThreshold emergency situations]]. The amount of attention paid to this detail in later episodes [[DependingOnTheWriter varies]], of course.

* '''The Modern era''': Mid to late 24th century. A period of internal conflict and consolidation. Despite tacit peace with the other local major powers, wars with distant powers such as the Borg and the Dominion weaken the Federation. ([[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]], [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine DS9]], [[Series/StarTrekVoyager VOY]])

We may know more isolated facts about the Franchise/{{Whoniverse}}. We may be more emotionally moved by the {{Buffyverse}}, but in terms of a coherent sense of history, world-building, cross-series and cross-media continuity, you really can't beat the Trek Verse.

* '''The ''Pre-Trek'' era''': Mid 20th century to late 21st century. Radical scientific and political developments lead to devastating conflicts such as the Eugenics Wars (1992-1996) and World War III (2026-2053) putting humanity on the verge of extinction. Later, Zephram Cochrane's launch of humanity's first ever warp-capable vessel, the ''Phoenix'', grabs the attention of Vulcans making the historic ''official'' FirstContact between humans and extraterrestrials. This event paves the way for the greatest cultural and technological renaissance in human history nearly eliminating poverty, disease and war.
* '''The ''Enterprise'' era''': Early to mid 22nd century. Man's first forays into deep space. This era culminates with the foundation of a United Federation of Planets, of which Earth is a signatory member. ([[Series/StarTrekEnterprise ENT]])
* '''The ''Classic'' era''': Mid to late 23rd century. A period of rapid expansion for the Federation. It is before or during this period that man reaches and surpasses the technological level of the rest of the major local species and becomes the dominant player in local politics.

* ''Bajorans:'' A mostly peaceful and spiritual race hardened by the rape of their homeworld by the Cardassians, they play a large role in [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]] where the titular space station hovers over their planet. The Federation wants them to become a member state but the two are opposed in some ways, including the Bajoran religion, especially the slightly xenophobic hardliner faction that wants both the Cardassians and the Federation to stay out.
* ''The Borg:'' [[HiveMind Cybernetic collective]] skilled in [[YouWillBeAssimilated adaptation and assimilation.]] Took over the role of [[StrawmanPolitical thinly veiled stand-ins]] [[DirtyCommies for communists]] from the Klingons in the Modern era. Generally treated as the single largest threat to the Federation, in part because they more or less ''cannot'' be negotiated with, have access to the knowledge of thousands of species and trillions of individuals and can adapt very quickly to almost any weapon used against them, rendering it useless, and partly because they are in some ways the Federation's dark reflection. A group that goes around incorporating other cultures into their own, in order to make the whole stronger, more complete, and more "perfect"? [[NotSoDifferent Did the writer just describe the Federation... or the Borg?]]
* ''Cardassians:'' Even more ScaryDogmaticAliens than the Romulans, introduced in the Next Generation era and a main antagonist of [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]; Expansionist, collectivist and many [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]] [[ThereAreFourLights overtones]]; they are brutal as colonial overlords and merciless with dissenters. They occupied the Bajoran homeworld until LaResistance got too much for them and actively try to subvert the treaty that forms the Cardassian [[TheNeutralZone Neutral Zone]] in order to control it. [[spoiler: They later side with The Dominion against the Federation. This ends ''[[LaserGuidedKarma horrifically]]'' for them, and by the latest point in the official timeline they've practically been reduced to a rump state due to the complete devastation of their entire nation, both homeworld and colonies.]]
* ''The Dominion:'' TheEmpire from another part of space, set to take over our side of the galaxy. Sort of a mirror version of the Federation, as it is comprised of many races, but unified through military force, with its most visible members being the Vorta and Jem'Hadar. Much of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' revolves around the war with them, and the consequences of this {{arc}} are sometimes felt in the other series. They also get to be stand-ins for [[AcceptableTargets the evil]] [[DrugsAreBad of drugs]], as their warriors are [[GovernmentDrugEnforcement addicted to one to keep them in line]].
* ''Ferengi:'' [[PlanetOfHats An entire race]] of [[CorruptCorporateExecutive slimy capitalists.]] The big-eared, big-nosed Ferengi value profit above all else, cheat and swindle as a way of life, have [[SpaceJews big ears and noses]], and are played by [[UnfortunateImplications primarily Jewish actors.]] The Ferengi were originally meant to be the new BigBad for The Next Generation in the way that the Klingons were for the original series, but that fell through after one or two episodes when it became apparent how silly they were. Ferengi were later relegated to comedy relief, most famously in the character Quark on Deep Space Nine.
* ''Humans:'' A race that is characterized, ironically, [[HumansAreSpecial by their lack of strong defining characteristics]], as well as their disproportionately large numbers within the Federation colonies and Starfleet, especially during the classic era. Other unique aspects of humans include the comparatively high level of diversity within their own species, and their familiarity with their planet's pre-apocalyptic history and culture; which was a time of rampant violence, greed, and ignorance before the Third World War issued in a new cultural era. Earth, the human homeworld, is home to the Federation's governmental bodies and Starfleet, its military force; and is located in Sector 001 on Federation maps.
* ''Klingons:'' a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race]] of RubberForeheadAliens (originally white guys wearing fu manchus and shoe polish in [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries TOS]]; retconned in Series/StarTrekEnterprise), started out as enemies of the Federation, but later became tacit allies. Later stories focus on the internal struggles of the Klingon Empire as a power on the wane.
* ''Romulans:'' Secretive diaspora Vulcan sub-species who rejected the Vulcan drive for logic, but have cloaking devices, which makes up for it. [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Highly xenophobic and reliant on their secret police to keep order]], they are [[FantasyCounterpartCulture loosely inspired by the Roman Empire]] and their territory is the Romulan Star Empire. They are also somewhat a ProudWarriorRace but have fewer qualms about [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty sneaky tactics]] and value honor for the Empire higher than personal honor. They once got along with the Klingons but these fundamental differences and some nasty wars mean Romulans and Klingons hate each other's guts. [[spoiler:The new [[Film/StarTrek Trek reboot movie]] makes it canon that the Romulan homeworld was destroyed by a supernova, sending Nero back in time for revenge and starting the AlternateTimeline.]]
* ''Vulcans:'' A logical, long-lived species (who suppress their emotions) with close ties to humanity. They are best recognized for their pointed ears, [[Film/TheThreeStooges Moe Howard]] haircuts, a distinctive salute (see CrossCulturalHandshake), and a clever defensive attack wherein they can render a person unconscious by squeezing the neck (the famed Vulcan Nerve Pinch). Like humans, Vulcans went through a cultural turning point (although theirs was much more drastic), and their intense devotion to logic is a backlash against their wild, vicious past. [[StrawVulcan Much is made]] of the contrast between the rational, collected Vulcans and the more emotional and impulsive human characters.

* The Alpha Quadrant. This is home to the Humans, Vulcans, and a number of other minor races, all of whom have banded together to form ''The United Federation of Planets''. It's also home to the Bajorans, Ferengi, and Cardassians. Portions of the Klingon and Romulan Empires also extend into the Alpha Quadrant.

* The Beta Quadrant. Major parts of the Klingon and Romulan empires are here. The Federation, likewise, claims some territories inside the Beta Quadrant. This is the least-discussed quadrant in the various TV series and movies, and as such little is known about it.
* The Delta Quadrant. Home to the Borg, and several dozen other species. Seemingly the [[CrapsackWorld most savage Quadrant]], every other lightyear is controlled by an extremely xenophobic and hostile race. This is the quadrant that the ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager U.S.S. Voyager]]'' was lost in for 7 years.
* The Gamma Quadrant. Home to the Dominion. A permanent wormhole connects the Gamma Quadrant to the star system where the Bajorans live.

* The ''Pre-Trek'' era: Mid 20th century to late 21st century. Radical scientific and political developments lead to devastating conflicts such as the Eugenics Wars (1992-1996) and World War III (2026-2053) putting humanity on the verge of extinction. Later, Zephram Cochrane's launch of humanity's first ever warp-capable vessel, the ''Phoenix'' grabs the attention of Vulcans on a survey mission making the historic ''official'' FirstContact between humans and extraterrestrials. This event paves the way for the greatest cultural and technological renaissance in humanity's history nearly eliminating poverty, disease and war.

The '''Trek Verse''' was invented by Creator/GeneRoddenberry for ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. Initially no more detailed or self-consistent than any other SpeculativeFiction 'verse, it has become a place with a continuity which outstrips that of any other project on television. It is built up by the {{canon}} details from five television, an AnimatedAdaptation series, and thirteen feature films; there is also a [[Franchise/StarTrekExpandedUniverse myriad of original novels]] that are not officially canon according to Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures, which owns the franchise, but many fans consider them so anyway. (As for the several {{Comic Book Adaptation}}s, their quality varies wildly, so at least some of the older ones have fallen prey to FanonDiscontinuity.) It also spawns vast amounts of {{fanon}}, in the form of more FanFic than the human mind can safely comprehend. As for future installments, there is a fourteenth film in early pre-production, and [[Series/StarTrekDiscovery a new TV series]] due in January 2017.
