We've rounded up some of our favorite photos from across the "Star Trek" TV universe. Take a look at memorable moments from red carpet premieres and classic episodes.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Trials and Tribble-ations (1996), a time travel story, was written to mark the 30th Anniversary of the Star Trek franchise. The DS9 crew travels back to 2268 at the time of Star Trek (1966) episode 2.15, Star Trek: The Original Series: The Trouble with Tribbles (1967), to prevent Arne Darvin from assassinating Captain Kirk and changing the timeline. Due to the ages of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and the other original cast members, it was decided to have this show's cast interact with the original footage of the Star Trek: The Original Series (1966) episode. Bluescreen and computer technology were used that had recently been employed for Forrest Gump (1994), another Paramount property.

The number of Dax hosts Jadzia and Ezri state there have been, fluctuates throughout the series and is usually inaccurate. After Verad became another host in a season 2 episode, and Joran was acknowledged to be a previously-missing host in a season 3 episode, there are 10 hosts in all: Ezri is the tenth, and after Joran and Verad are counted Jadzia is the ninth. Yet Ezri in her only season (7) states she is the eighth, and Jadzia after season 3 usually states SHE is the eighth (counting Joran but forgetting about Verad), though before Joran was discovered (season 3) but after Verad (season 2), Jadzia still says she is the eighth (she counts Verad).
The opening credits for "Emissary" lacked the wormhole opening that all future episodes featured. Starting with Season 4, the opening credits included additional spacecraft and activity around the station, including the Defiant flying into the wormhole.
Several episodes were originally shown as 2-hour movies. They were later edited into two-part 60 minute episodes for later airings.
