The End!… or just the beginning….


  1. So I realize that the reboot movie are an alternate timeline...but still...why not include them anyway? They are great movies! And interesting to watch, in relation to the rest of the Star Trek canon. Is there a reason you left them out?

    1. I agree, they are great movies, and in fact we did include the first one (and just added the other two... sort of). The purpose of this list was to order the Primeline, Live Action canon. Hopefully we'll get enough Kelvin Timeline content to eventually make give it it's own list! ;)

  2. The Voyager episode Timeless has, at this point Captain Geordi LaForge. I dunno if that counts cause its a time travel paradox headache episode, buts hes a TNG charector and hes in it

    1. Good catch! I updated it. Thanks!

  3. will you be updating this list once the new series and more of the movies come out? as it stands, the movie into darkness (as of the date of this comment) should be number 706 on this list. i do hope you update this list for when the new series comes out, adding in those episodes after each season.

    1. I added a section in "The Process" detailing our choice to include... but not include these two films.

  4. Where does the anime fit into this timeline

    1. Our goal for this was to do a chronology of the Primeline, Live Action canon. However, we did add to the list the spot where The Animated Series could be included if you want to watch it. Thanks!

  5. Thanks Soooooo Much for going to the effort of publishing this list. I have just started watching it chronologically and now thanks to you I can do it perfectly!!!

  6. The Episodes ENT: In a Mirror, Darkly could be moved down on the list to coincide and be portrayed after the events which happen in Episode TOS: The Tholian Web since in fact it involves an alternate ENT crew and time line.. Just a thought.

    1. You bring up a great point! Upon further thought and examination, we've decided to change our placement of those episodes. It actually adheres more to our own Time Travel rule when you consider the USS Defiant and a Primeline "character". Thanks for pointing this out. We appreciate it!

    2. All the episodes numbers after the ENT eps you just inserted need to be shifted down, 163 on.

    3. We didn't insert them, but rather moved them from an earlier placement, so it won't add numbers following that point. I did notice a typo in the one number though, so thanks!!

    1. Wow! You're right! Thanks for catching that. We've updated it. :)

  9. Correct me if I'm wrong, please but wouldn't Star Trek: 2009 occur in the timeline at Slot # 97, which is where you have the beginning of Star Trek: The Original Series taking place, because, if I remember from that film, isn't that when Whedon says Kirk takes command of the Enterprise for the first time? Also, according to Star Trek: Into Darkness, wouldn't that film (Into Darkness) occur just after Slot # 138? And Star Trek: Beyond would occur in-between Slots # 161 - 162, or no? What about The Animated Series? When do the events of that series occur in this timeline? Sorry about all the questions, I'm just trying to get the series and films in as close to chronological order as I possibly can. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I appreciate it!

    1. No, ST09 starts in the prime timeline after the events of VOY and Nemesis. Spock than crosses in to the Kelvin timeline and it starts all over. Since STID and BEY are in a new timeline, you can't insert them chronologically in between TOS. ST09 can be where it is since it starts in the original timeline and the other 2 films should continue after ST09 since technically it's continuing on from the prime timeline since Spock is still alive until BEY.

    2. Those films take place in an alternate universe/timeline which is why they aren't placed there. If you want to read our reasoning for their placement, just go to The Process section and scroll down to "Star Trek 2009". :)

  10. This is probably the most descriptive explanation of the Star Trek Canon that I've ever seen! I can't wait to watch the whole canon in order now!

  11. Hi guys,

    Great piece of work! I did "this" with the help of Excel back in 2002 but didn't have the chance to actually watch all the episodes in the crested order. I interpolated missing stardates when it was about aligning episodes of different series. The result is similar but remotely as precice as what you did. I never checked episodes to see if there would be contextual issues. I'm impressed by your work and since I am watching TNG in HD now, I'm looking forward to finally seeing DS9 mix in, using your list. The fun thing is, VOY started 4 months after TNG, so mix-watching goes on! I watched the beginning of GENERATIONS and paused (actually stopped) the movie before watching TNG. I will continue the movie at the TNG part. I know, splitting a movie or episode might feel weir but I like the idea of putting a whole series that actually happened into this flash-forward. So the first, TOS part of the movie will feel like being ages ago and the later Nexus fun will feel more like a gift from the past. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the work and keep enjoying watching the shows.

    My best regards,

    1. It was a blast doing this even though it was a lot of work. Glad you are enjoying it!

  12. Where does Star Trek Discovery fall in this chronology?

    1. It will fall between ENT & TOS.

    2. That's not 100% known yet, however it is rumored to take place between ENT and TOS. We've noted that on the list and will update once it is actually released.

    3. Also it's been confirmed that it takes place about 2 years after "The Cage". "In Star Trek: Discovery, set in 2256 (two years after the events of "The Cage"), the protagonist, a female lieutenant commander, will be referred to as "Number One" in honor of Majel Barrett's character (though not actually being the same character). Her real name will be revealed towards the end of the first season.[4][5]" -Wikipedia-

    4. We must have missed that. The Discovery spot on the list for right now is just an estimated placeholder. Once the series is released we'll have a better idea of where it actually fits in the timeline. :)

  13. Where does the animated series fall into this list

  14. Hello
    Your recommendations above have been the best out of all others. Would you be so kind as to add the newer releases of movies and shows as this is only updated up til 2009.
    I would be so so grateful!!

    1. Thanks so much! "Into Darkness" and "Beyond" have (sort of) been added to the list. You can visit the section called The Process for more information on the Kelvin Timeline films and their inclusion.

  15. Will there be an update with the newest series

  16. The printable checklist is gone. :(

    1. We are aware that the printable checklist link no longer works. That file has been lost, but we'll work to replace it in the near future. :) Thank you!!

  17. Shouldn't First Contact have no colored C next to it, since Worf is technically a TNG character first. Or if anything a DS9 colored C? Noit a VOY C?

    1. The crossover notated in First Contact is for the appearance of Robert Picardo's EMH. Granted, it's technically a different EMH than Voyager's but we thought it still counts as a minor crossover moment.

  19. Going by airdate, 13 ENT and 14 ENT appear to be transposed. Is that a mistake, or is there a timeline reason for the order change?

    1. Good catch! That's the second "typo" error someone has caught. We appreciate it, and it has been corrected! Thanks! :)

  20. Wouldn't "All Our Yesterdays" be a multi-temporal episode, because it occurs not only in TOS, but also at two other time periods, only one of which was identified (5000 years in the past), while the other is set during the equivalent of the Middle Ages in Sarpeidon's past?

  21. There is a lot of time travel in that episode, yes. However, it wouldn't affect our placement of the episode chronologically in reference to the other episodes. For more information on how we handled episodes involving time travel, please reference the section titles "The Process". Thanks!

  22. Great list! Send it to netflix! :D
    Are the movies after TOS and before TNg really needed for continuity? I'd rather skip them as they're not on netflix (in my country at least) and not sure how to get my hands on them without pirating...

    1. I don't know if I'd say they are "vital" to enjoying the other shows. The events of Star Trek II are referenced a few times in DS9 and Voyager, and the events of Star Trek VI are referenced in The Next Generation, but they aren't major plot tie-ins. That being said, a few of those films are (in my humble opinion) some of the very best Trek has to offer! If you can get your hands on them it's totally worth it!

  23. This list is so awesome(!!), but I'm wondering about your reasoning behind the placement of Generations. Obviously I know we're counting the TNG part, not the TOS part at the beginning, but with no known Stardate, is your placement of it based on references, or flow of diversity between episodes?
    My girlfriend and I are currently in the process of watching every single episode and movie of Star Trek, and are following this list (with the exception of watching ENT and Kelvin movies after Nemesis). I have seen all of them before, but she has not. I ask because I kinda feel weird showing her Generations slightly after the start of Voyager, instead of slightly before the series' start - like it was originally released. It feels neater to me to close out the TOS movies series before starting another new series, as opposed to having essentially 4 different series going on at once. I just want to make sure I'm not missing something. Thanks! LLAP :)

    1. Genrations is placed according to it's Stardate, which is a later date than VOY: Caretaker, even though it was released in theaters prior to the airing of Caretaker. We generaly prioritize stardate over air date. When it comes to the TNG/DS9/VOY era. In a nutshell, the order of priority in that era is this:
      1.) Internal plot references
      2.) Stardate
      3.) Air date

      Hope that answers your question. Thanks for checking out our list!

  24. Having been born in 1966, i have watched everything in somewhat of a release order, taking into account pre-internet & pre-DVR days, re-runs, and late night syndycate at 03:00 catching up on missed episodes.
    With Netflix now aquiring all the series, I am very excited to watch in this in your suggested cronological order.
    Also looking forward to Discovery ... if they ever get it together over there.

    Thanks for all your hard work!!!

    1. Thanks! You're in for a treat. It was a lot of fun watching through them this way. It will take a while though. It took me about 18 months and that was with a pretty aggressive viewing schedule. Enjoy!! :)

  25. Why is 594 VOY Living Witness not listed at the end? Since the entire episode occurs 700 years in the future shouldn't it be listed after all the other voyager episodes? I understand it's mainly flashback, but it seems to me that if we are going to do a true chronological list this would have to be at (or near) the end.

    1. We actually address that episode specifically in our "The Process" section. Long-story-short although we're aware that technically it is the latest episode chronologically, it just doesn't feel right to make this episode the "final chapter" when viewing them all in sequence. It was a deliberate choice on our part to ignore the rules just this once. However, feel free to watch it at the end if you want to! :)

    2. The point of origin In ENT: in a mirror darkly part one and two is in the mirror universe in the mid 22nd century so it should not even be on this list since it is a chronological order of the prime universe. Also can you fix the endention on TOS: the cage it bugs me

    3. You're right about IAMD. We actually address that in our "The Process" section. Basically, although there is no "character" from the Prime Universe present, there is a ship from that universe (The USS Defiant from The Tholian Web), so using that as our point of reference we put those ENT episodes after that one.

    4. Also, I'll see what I can do about that indentation.

  26. I just wanted to thank you for this list. I wanted to watch ST for years and I never knew where to start so I just gave up and watched something else. After finding your list I finally started watching it for the first time ever. I am now on number 319 and I love ST. Have a nice day! :)

  27. I just started watching in this order a couple of weeks ago in preparation for Discovery. I'm also working on my own spreadsheet in Excel with a listing of ship combats in each episode. While pulling up date information on Memory Alpha, I noticed that Cold Front takes place 1 week after Silent Enemy. Silent Enemy gives a date of September 1st, 2151 in the Captain's Log entry. (Yes, I read your note on how sometimes the Captain could get the date wrong.) But I am wondering about the source in Cold Front for a date of September 9th, 2151. Could you look into it, and if you think it is needed, swap the two episodes in your list?
