TOS, TAS, TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT, ...ALT?
I've seen that abbreviation suggested, but what's the full term it's shorthand for?
Well, works as a shorthand for "Alternate reality", which is the name used in the script by Uhura. Alt-universe, Alt-Kirk, Alt-Spock, USS Alterprise...
It was a rhetorical question, leading into my subsequent point that "alternate reality" is too generic to work in the long term, given that there will likely be other alternate Trek realities one day. (And already are -- the Mirror Universe, the "Yesteryear" universe, the "Parallels" universes, etc.)
