* 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 ''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]])

It also includes at least three separate continuities -- The Main 'Verse, The Mirror 'Verse (of the Terran Empire and later, uglier events in which the former subjects of the Empire are subject to backlash by everyone else), and the [[Film/StarTrek JJ Abrams movie continuity]] (consisting of the ''Pre-Trek'' and ''Enterprise'' eras as they were with a radically revamped ''Classic'' era), with hints of others, the most likely candidate being the alternate future of ''Enterprise'''s Temporal Cold War. This does not include the Franchise/StarTrekExpandedUniverse, which adds an indeterminable number of extra continuities of its own. Note, however, that so far as anyone knows, the other Gene Roddenberry-developed properties like ''EarthFinalConflict'' and ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' have nothing to do with Star Trek. It's almost complex as the many continuities of {{Transformers}}, but at least the Trek mercifully interconnects them in ways that mostly make sense.

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 twelve 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. Additionally, there is a thirteenth film with a trailer out, a new TV series confirmed for 2017, and some suggestion of a 14th movie, should things work out.

* {{Teleportation}}, called simply Transporters. They can operate over distances of several thousand kilometers, but are ''not'' long ranged enough to beam a person from the Earth to the Moon (unless someone comes up with a {{Technobabble}} way of doing so that only works for that one episode). They cannot operate through a starship's DeflectorShields. Several other local conditions can interfere with the operation of Transporters, usually in direct proportion to how much immediate danger an away-team is in.

* ArtificialGravity. Ubiquitous on all starships and space stations, it is possibly the most robust piece of technology in the 'verse. On-screen, it has only failed twice [[Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry as a result of]] [[StarTrekVoyager enemy action]].

We may know more isolated facts about the {{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.
