i've never properly watched star trek before, but feeling like i've been missing out so i've decided to start watching, but there are so many series' and movies, which do i start with and wats the usual viewing order from there? do i watch all the series through, then watch the movies, or do the movies come in between different series? 8  out of 9 found this valuable.

Generally, you watch in the order it was made/released.

You could also try watching it in "chronological" order, with help from Wikipedia's timelines, but given time travel stories and what-not, that's not exactly a simple task.

This is way too complicated. I recommend skipping "Star Trek: Enterprise" entirely, but if you really want to watch it, watch the whole thing from beginning to end, THEN go on to TOS, TAS, Movies 1-6, etc. 1  out of 12 found this valuable. Do you?

this is a very precise order and being a new trekkie i find it very helpful for people like me that want to watch the series in order of time line it seem you have taken into account all the time travel as well, but i would save watching movie 11 until the very end as it is an alternate timeline and may confuse some people. although it is a very good movie never thought i would see sylar playing spok lmao.....to funny

I've watched all and am in the process of watching them again, in the order that person had mentioned. and agree, why would one SKIP a series of Star Trek, I found and still find Star Trek Enterprise a great part to the whole Star Trek genre

I have always been up in the air about "Enterpise" only because it was not explicitly written by Roddenberry. But I still may watch it.

What, and Voyager WAS written "explicitly" by Roddenberry?
