The '''Trek Verse''', aka the ''StarTrek'' [[TheMultiverse multiverse]], 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 shows, 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.

At least one planned series (''Assignment: Earth'') was to be set in the TrekVerse during the 1960s, but did not come to pass.

It establishes at least three separate universes -- The Main Trek Verse aka "The Prime Reality" as noted above, The MirrorUniverse (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 Kelvin Timeline]][[note]]Not the official in-universe canonical term for this movie continuity[[/note]] aka "The [[Creator/JJAbrams Abramsverse]]" (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 ''Series/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.

Technology in the Star Trek universe is as varied as the scriptwriters who invented it. However, despite some outright discontinuities in the availability or even [[ForgottenPhlebotinum existence]] of various pieces of Treknology, there are certain staples that show up again and again as the standard means by which the Federation (and most of the other major players) get things done:
